Let’s talk about the Precursors. I’m choosing this color for Flood theme. I mean the Precursors that made the Flood, I couldn’t care less about the tribal ones in the past.
Well, we know how the Flood came about from them, and that the Primordial hinted that the Flood would come back. But what about the Precursors themselves?
First off, are there any left? Yes. The Primordial confirmed it seeing as they were the ones that sent the capsules into Ancient Human territory. Buuuut, that plan got kinda ruined when the Forerunners started to get involved.
But now that humanity is becoming “ripe” and all that prophecy jazz, do you REALLY think the Precursors will show?
I say no: Why? Because, even if the UNSC got a hold of every Forerunner artifact and became allies with the Covenant species, I don’t honestly think that something of THAT magnitude will be stoppable.
Now you might be thinking “but it was only to bring them unity.” That’d be kind-of…anti-climactic, if the solution was to just ally with the Covenant (and I’m sick and tired of fighting those guys, I don’t want to keep doing it just to please the freaking Precursors and have them be like “Oh, yeah, you got unified” then pulls the Flood back
I don’t think we’ll ever encounter the ancient Precursors…it’s too much for the universe to handle.
