Talk:Floral Express

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

When did it arrive?[edit]

I was reading over the 11th Hour Reports again. The reference to the date of Oct 8th follows the sentence about "Gamma Halo was located", not that the Floral Express left Tribute, correct? I may be misinterpreting. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 22:27, 25 July 2014 (EDT)

Yeah, that seems correct. It makes sense, since it's unlikely that the Battle of Tribute was still ongoing by October. - NightHammer (talk) 22:48, 25 July 2014 (EDT)
I would surmise that Tribute was likely attacked around the same time as the bulk of the Covenant invaded Reach (since both colonies are in the same star system). For a civilian ship to successfully escape it was probably before the invasion really set in so if it took off on, say, August 30, 2552, then the slipspace trip to Gamma Halo would be about 40 days. Not sure if that really helps locate where Gamma Halo is, galactically, but that a ship made the trip from Earth to Gamma Halo 1 day in Escalation #8 is, I dunno. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 23:01, 25 July 2014 (EDT)
Honestly, I think the Longsword equipped with a slipspace drive was just an error, rather than intentional. Or like you said earlier, another ship was involved. - NightHammer (talk) 23:28, 25 July 2014 (EDT)
