Terminals[edit]

Where in the terminals is it stated that the moon shown is Rantu in particular? I only caught "one of their moons" in the terminal proper (though it could be a description I'm not aware of). Given Catalog's relatively recent statement about first contact with the Mgalekgolo occurring on Rentus, wouldn't it make more sense as the setting of the terminal? --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 03:08, 18 November 2014 (EST)

Never mind, noticed the description for the terminal is "A journey to Rantu". --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 14:03, 18 November 2014 (EST)
This crossed my mind the other day:
Query: There appears to be conflicting info as to where first contact between Lekgolo and the Covenant occurred, with some sources stating it was Te while others stating it was an unnamed gas giant. Can you clarify that?[priority]
Query Answer: First contact with Hunters was on [Rentus], a moon of the gas-giant [Te] in [784 BCE]. [ref: Halo Encyclopedia, p. 30].
Two official sources claim that first contact happened on Rentus as opposed to just one for Rantu. I have a feeling the terminal description is inaccurate. Problems like this are bound to come up when dealing with such similar names. --Our vengeance is at hand. Gravemind Avatar Icon artwork from the Halo 3 Terminals. A PNG file can be find here.

Yeah, I noticed that too. However, I think that there is two possible ways to rectify it. "First contact with Hunters" on Rentus refers to the first contact with the Mgalekgolo, while "It was [Rantu] that we discovered the Lekgolo's secret" refers to the Covenant learning that the Lekgolo can quickly assemble themselves in the Mgalekgolo and that the latter is not a separate entity. First contact on Rentus could also mean that the Mgalekgolo killed all Covenant forces they encountered and no documentation of them was possible, while Rantu had the Arbiter encounter the Mgalekgolo and survive, allowing them to be documented. - NightHammer (talk) 13:56, 20 March 2015 (EDT)

Never mind. First contact was on Rentus. I forgot how the terminal is worded. --Our vengeance is at hand. Gravemind Avatar Icon artwork from the Halo 3 Terminals. A PNG file can be find here. (Talk to me.) 22:25, 20 March 2015 (EDT)
