A slipspace flake[1] was a central component of a Forerunner slipspace drive. They were quantum-engineered crystalline devices, and were used aboard Forerunner spacecraft to modulate the ship's passage through the higher dimensions, being a major contributor to their markedly stable slipspace transitions.[2] All slipspace flakes were chipped from a central "core" crystal, the location of which was known only to the Master Builder.[3]

The Forerunner capital had an entire hallway located near the Council chamber decorated with millions of spent slipspace flakes, some adorning the walls and others built into rotating sculptures.[1]


The crystal found by Dr. Halsey in the ruins beneath CASTLE Base on Reach may have been a slipspace flake, though it possessed time/space-bending properties beyond simply enabling faster slipspace travel.
