Yes... Me and my questions but I am wondering, where do some of you get the information from about how things are developed... I don't remember reading that this was made by a "Secret Group of Researchers", if so that should be expanded on a bit more, you know? Jin Won 16:49, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

It wasn't and so it is gone. Poof! Lord Hyren 04:38, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I practically re-wrote the article. I think this version flows better and repeats itself less often. 10:32, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I undid the first edit because you removed to much and didnt replace it. Its perfect now. Blade bane 10:33, 24 May 2009 (UTC)Blade bane

I notice that it is mentioned there are two in-atmosphere slipspace entries by Covenant ships; the one in the novel and one over New Mombasa; however, shouldn't there be at least three, from the Assault Carrier's entry during the Memorial scene at the end of Halo 3? -- 19:32, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Naming Convention.[edit]

Any chance the Shaw-Fujikawa FTL drive was a reference to the Kearny-Fuchida FTL drives from Battletech? Seems like too big a coincidence for a FTL drive to have a Western name-Eastern name drive and they both happen to be named after their inventors.--Zervziel 18:41, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

With the frequent Halo references to the Alien movie series, it would be far more likely the homage was to the naming similarity to Weyland-Yutani. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 10:05, 22 January 2014 (EST)

Orbital memorial[edit]

There is a memorial of Shaw and Fujikawa in the multiplayer map "orbital" and on Fujikawas plaque, an unknown ship is in space above a planet. I wish I could get a picture of it. Anyway, it could possibily be a UNSC Carrier since it is the only large UNSC ship that we don't know what it looks like. Also, on Shaw's plaque, there is Frigates on it, so both plaques appear to have a UNSC Starship theme. Darb 013 03:35, August 31, 2010 (UTC)


Why are there sections on Covenant and Forerunner slipspace drives? This page is about the SFTE, the human slipspace drive, uless I'm missing something.--D9328 (talk) 19:42, 9 January 2018 (EST)d9328

Yep, my intent is to split the page so we have an article named either "slipspace drive" or perhaps the more formal "translight engine", and then have an article for the SFTE engine. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 20:49, 9 January 2018 (EST)
I honestly don't know if it's even necessary to have a separate article for the SFTE if we go with "slipspace drive" for the umbrella page. Granted, there are a bit more specifics available on the human drives, but the general idea is still the same. The articles actually used to be split way back, but they were merged for that very reason - there really wasn't enough distinguishing info to justify keeping them separate. It's true, though, that "slipspace drive" or "translight engine" would be a better title for the general article. Technically, one could argue that any slipspace drive could be considered to qualify as an "SFTE" insofar as one might formally call slipspace "Shaw-Fujikawa space", but it's not really a strong justification. --Jugus (talk) 02:59, 12 January 2018 (EST)
You mentioned the reason that the articles where merged way back when was because of a lack of distinguishing info. Considering all the stuff that's been released since then(in particular Halo: Warfleet) I would imagine we have a bit more distinguishments between human, Covenant, and Forerunner slipspace drives. Also, there's the different models we now know human FTL drives have to consider.--D9328 (talk) 11:34, 12 January 2018 (EST)d9328
