I've never ever read a Halo book meself! I need to though!I don't read many Halo books since they're so hard to find. I read, "The Fall of Reach" once and that was a couple of years ago. I am fluent with the Halo video game history very well though. (Definitely not a genius on the books) Thanks for the correction!Don't take this personally but First Contact with the Covenant was on Harvest not in the Sigma Octanus system. Like the idea though!On the topic of the first encounters of covies and UNSC: I think they should make the Iroquois and a Covenant cruiser. The first encounter of the covies was on the Iroquois. The Iroquois lost a few decks of the bottom hull in that battle whilst still destroying the covie cruiser. After the battle commander Keyes was promoted to Captain. (I think) The Iroquois should have 3 or 4 technicians and operators/ Commander Keyes/ and a few marines. If they make a covie cruiser it should come with a covenant general/ 3 elite minors/ 2 pilots/ and 4-8 grunts.
