>but still keep living flood samples in labs on the rings for some reason

This is so moronic? Why would they preserve flood samples? Is this ever explained

    Idk about the games, but in the show the Forerunner mummy had the Flood thing held in some kind of laboratory. I think the Forerunners were trying to study the Flood in some way.

      Wasn't the first season a shitshow? Did they retcon all of it and go in a different direction entirely or something?

        Don't bother, just watch The Shield (2002) instead. Much better than some sci-fi crap for little kiddies.

      Makes sense, the writers of the show don't know anything about the games either.

    Cortana explains it right there in the first game.
    You can't actually kill the Flood, the Halo rings "wipe the galaxy clean of all sentient life" to *starve* the Flood to death.
    They can't reproduce without sentients to provide them with fresh brain matter

      You can kill the Flood, it just becomes practically impossible to do once they've literally infested the whole galaxy which is why they just killed everything. Killing the Flood is a thing you do all the time in these games, I don't think any Flood survived the events of CE.

      Guilty Spark mentioned that some Flood specimens were kept for research or something like that. There were probably boatloads of warnings not to release them that the Covenant ignored or misinterpreted

        yeah i think he mentions that the "other species" on the ring was careless or something?

        The Flood came from beings that were outside of the galaxy. They fear they would come back either way so they put samples in hopes that they continue researching.

    Maybe if the writers actually played the Halo games, they wouldn't have to ask Ganker for help making their show make sense.

    Same reason why we still have smallpox samples despite having wiped it out, for research in case shit REALLY goes down.

    They do it explain it in the terminals they added for the remastered first game but I can't remember it exactly, I think they wanted a definite way to stop the flood in the future even if they were all dead

    Same reason why people keep viruses on labs: Research on a way to weaponize or stop them. They have been trying to find a way to "cure" them (they are incurable), but they got cornered so hard they had to use the rings as their last resort.

      They were basically uplifted from what I recall. They used to not want to even touch forerunner tech but then the prophets came along and they had zero issue using it and fricking owned them.

      Their religion blinded them thinking that the seals the Forerunners put were because they left their legacy there, but instead they found their doom.

    During the Library:
    >Why naturally the Flood is simply too dangerous to release, and mass sterilization protocols may again need to be enacted. Of course, samples were kept here after the last catastrophic outbreak... For study. It seems... That decision may have been an error."
    So there it seems like they were being studied on to look for any alternate cures in case any foreign Flood show up en masse again.
    >"The installation was specifically built to study and contain the Flood. Their survival as a race was dependent upon it. I am grateful to see that some of them survived to reproduce."
    This segment is a bit misleading and seems like Guilty Spark is referring to the Flood's survival being important. 343GS is referring to the Forerunners, and being grateful to see that some of them reproduced (modern humans).

    Bungie era flood were extragalactic. Wiping them out in the Milky Way didn't guarantee an end to their threat. To prevent having to fire the rings every single time the Flood showed up, the Forerunners decided to research them in secure locations hoping they'd find a way to stop them that didn't involve omniciding the galaxy every couple hundred thousand years.
    The facilities weren't expected to run autonomously forever, the Forerunners expected reclaimers (humans) to take up their stewardship.

    You can absolutely kill the Flood in Bungie era Halo, it's just a futile gesture with anything other than the Halo rings once they've reached interstellar travel. The Cortana line from two betrayals was softretconned in 2/3, the Flood don't need "food" past a certain point. The Halo rings went from explicitly targeting their food and starving them to being an indiscriminate WMDs.
