Finally, with all the environmental tidings we have on this ship, I now feel like I can finally ask this; WTF is that thing behind Drifter in the room we are in before you spawn into a Gambit game? Or if that is too much, the stuff that was on the derelict that we now see all over this ship? What IS that?

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but . . . I hope it’s the Flood. Almost literally. I think a good space zombie enemy could be amazing in Destiny. The Taken feel like they’re supposed to be that, but it’s not quite the same. I think Halo 3 Flood almost exactly would be great in Destiny as a third party enemy in any encounter, especially with the reanimation aspect.

... on that note, this reminds me of something. I did feel some Halo flashbacks in the Hanger portion which has a very similar layout. Not 1-to-1, but very similar. At first I thought of it as a call back, because deep down I wanted it to be, but it's not (there is no door where the Hunters would be coming out). After all, it's a hanger. How many versions of it's purpose can there be?

Also... I don't think you want the flood, but the thrill in fighting the flood. A mix of space magic meets Lovecraftian horror. I swear, if we get another "Spooky" infinite forest this year I'll... *wait*, can we? Mercury is gone. Hmm. Guess we'll see.
