wait...

The events of First Strike involves the survivors of the Battle of Alpha Halo but F.S. takes place on September 12th 2552…yet the Battle of Installation 04 took place on the 19th to the 22nd. Wat?

Either its a Canon error (date error) or blame the Forerunner Crystal for bending time.

> or blame the Forerunner Crystal for bending time.

That’s what i would assume.

or you didn’t read the book…

opens his original Halo: The Flood novel

Chapter One
0127 Hours (Ship’s Time), Spetember 19, 2552 (Military Calendar)/UNSC Cruiser Pillar of Autumn, location unknown.

now goes to his original First Strike novel

Chapter Thirty-Six

1825 hours. September 13, 2552 (revised date, Military Calendar)\Aboard UNSC vessel Gettysburg, near Covenant battle station Unyielding Hierophant.

The crystals effect is what causes the revised date, is it not?
