AS YOU CAN SEE WE ARE LOOKING LIKE WE ARE HEADING TO ONYX, HERE IS ALL THE INFO KNOW ABOUT ONYX

 

Onyx, officially known by the UNSC as "XF-063", was a planet-sized Forerunner construct located in the Zeta Doradus System. While it had a Human habitable surface and a seemingly terrestrial crust, internally, it was actually composed of trillions of Onyx Sentinels.[2] Onyx's ultimate purpose was to guard the entrance to a Shield World. It was the location of the massive, three-sided Battle of Onyx.

 

 

 

Background

 

Onyx, named by the Unified Earth Government due to the unusually large onyx quarries found in the planet's crust, had an Oxygen-Nitrogen gas atmosphere, of suitable pressure for Human life with a temperate weather cycle. It also had an unusually large number of indigenous species of flora and fauna, some of which were edible by Humans and posed no threatening danger. The transplanting of Earth species was immediately possible.

 

Some notable anomalies were that it had no detectable tectonic activity, an unusually strong planetary magnetic field, and slightly higher than normal background radiation. All of this was possibly explained when it was revealed that the planet's crust was composed of large numbers of dormant Sentinels.

Onyx's surface, as mentioned before, was composed of seemingly infinite amounts of Sentinels, with a massive Forerunner city hidden under the terraformed ground layer. Under the surface, there was a vast network of underground tunnels and installations, including a map room and an immense Sentinel production facility under the northern polar region.

 

In the core of Onyx, there was a large room, the Core Room Antechamber. It contained a slipspace rift that would be open for a short time after the Halo Array was put into standby mode, allowing evacuation to the Micro Dyson Sphere within, acting as an escape from the Array's destructive firing.

 

The Dyson Sphere habitat located wholly within a maintained slipspace bubble, which in normal space, is only some meters in diameter, has a diameter of approximately 300 million kilometers. The megastructure has a habitable, terraformed surface and in the center, a G2-type star to provide terrestrial lighting.[3]

 

 

History

250px-Onyx_Surface_01.pngA UNSC complex on the surface of Onyx. Onyx was discovered by the UNSC Engineering Corps sometime around May, 2491. In ENGCORP Field Report A76344, Captain D. F. Lambert stated "XF-063 is a rare jewel of a find" and recommended colonization. The Assembly quickly moved to keep colonization from occurring, as they had discovered the presence of Forerunner artifacts independently of the UNSC and feared that humanity would not be ready to learn about the existence of alien life.

 

On February 19, 2492, in ENGCORP Field Report A79052 Lieutenant W. K. Davidson stated that Geological Expedition Four found an entire phylum of possible alien taxonomy and recommended a follow-up survey with specialists in Paleobiology, Xenobiology, and Biochemistry.

 

In 2511, when archaeological expeditions uncovered massive subterranean Forerunner constructions in what would after be called Zone 67, ONI immediately took control of the world, going so far as to remove Onyx from UNSC navigational databases and suspending any prospective colonization and terraforming attempts. However, further attempts to determine the purpose of the structures, or even to extract any usable technology, yielded no results. In 2525, with the coming of the Human-Covenant War, the operation was scaled down and only a minimum ONI garrison and a single AI remained. The planet's location remained secret. Regular scans continued to yield little of value.

 

 

With the course of the Human-Covenant War, Vice Admiral Margaret O. Parangosky authorized the construction of the SPARTAN-III training base on Onyx in 2531 (there were three companies trained, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma) because of the planet's obscurity. This base, designated Camp Currahee, was constructed perilously close to Zone 67, which had been declared strictly off limits. However, during a routine exercise north of Currahee, Beta Company Team X-ray trespassed into Zone 67, entered a Forerunner structure, and disappeared without trace. An ONI investigation into the matter was inconclusive, although X-Ray was rumored to have encountered a "glowing eye", which detonated upon discovery.

 

 

Battle of Onyxblank.gif

In 2552, Onyx's Sentinels were roused to action by the standby signal from Installation 05, instigating the Battle of Onyx and revealing Onyx's true nature. The AI Endless Summer took command of all military personnel on Onyx to immediately defend Zone 67 per General Order 98.93.120, after Onyx's Sentinels first started to attack the SPARTAN-III's. Endless Summer sent Kurt a flash transmission sending attached files directly into Kurt's retina. An explosion stopped Endless Summer's transmission before Kurt could finish scanning the new threat. At the conclusion of the battle, Onyx was effectively destroyed, although not before Bloody Arrow was declared and Blue Team, Team Saber, Team Katana, Dr. Halsey, and SCPO Mendez escaped to the safety of the Shield World.

If you're saying that the planet Chief will be crashing on is Onyx then you're wrong.

What'd you get the pic? If I can get the longitude, altitude, ascension, and declination of the star map. I can try to find it on a real one.

if the Chief crashes on Onyx 343i would have to have ignored the book, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, in which Onyx was destroyed and the surviving sentinels left. i would like to see Onyx. Maybe the Chief went back in time to before Onyx was destroyed?

That's some good intel on Onyx there, Trey. Good intel. And while I disagree with some others that H4 can't have anything to do with Onyx, it's only because there might be a chance that the teaser we've all seen might simply not be the Onyx shield world. Doesn't mean Sierra-117 won't be making a pit-stop to it at all. And if he does, who's to say that it can't be after it activated and locked-down, y'know?

 

But all this is is conjecture. All anyone outside the project team can do is speculate about it. Unless…

 

Trey? Is there something you're withholding from your buddies here? Is this article meant to divert our attention away from the truth? Perhaps to make any surprise even more surprising? Like Reverse-Reverse Psychology? Or is this Reverse-Reverse-Reverse Psychology, where you're trying to make us think it is Onyx by making us think that you're trying to make us think it isn't, when it really is? Are you under threat of death by 343i to maintain a shroud of secrecy? Emote once for yes, twice for no.

Hey didn't that picture come with the Halo Reach Legendary Edition or Limited Edition whichever one?

Similar picture in Halsey's journal. Not sure if it is the same.

HMMMM interesting info, doubt it is Onyx though, from the E3 studios trailer it looks as if it IS the sheild world itself, posibly homing some other living being, quite possible forrunner

It's been a while and nobody seems to have said anything about it, so I feel I must…

 

In astronomy terms :

 

Satellite= orbiting stellular body (like the Moon is a satellite of earth)

 

Other than that nice job. :thumbsup:

Stellular. :no

Stellar. :yes

 

No offense intended, Sil. You're still awesome.

Time Paradox caused by the Slipspace portal malfunctioning is highly plausible. So he could meet up with the rest of blue team. And meet up with Forerunners inside the installation. Plausibility of this theory is 31.7%... I did the math.

My crazy theory: Master chief crash lands on onyx to discover that he has been launched thousands of years in to the past by the closing of the portal on his half of the ship.he is found unconscious by the forerunners, when he wakes the forerunners ask him where he came from and why he is here. after answering the forerunners, yet to even encounter the flood, have a meeting to decide whether this armoured stranger is telling the truth or not.those who believe him begin work on the halo array however tose who didnt just stood and watched. after a few days pass a strange rock lands on onyx which happens to be a flood escape pod that was launched as a ditch effort by the grave mind to endure the firing of Halo.

It had followed the Dawn while staying jusst far enough away that cortana wouldnt notice it. the forerunners were ignorant at first and didnt act in violence to the parasite.until news finally reached the leaders of the forerunnersof the serious threat that the flood posed,not to the planet, but the universe.then they fully put thier trust in master chief as he led them to battle against the flood.Some of the forerunners followed him to battle others went straight to work on colleting the dna of sentinent species, that they may be preserved on shield worlds.Others bulit the 7 Halos and the Ark.
