So it occurred to me the other day, obviously when I was bored.

At the end of Halo2, Arbiter and Johnson mount up on one of the Covenant ships and head to earth, in plenty of time to get there before MC.
MC who by the way hitched a ride on a Forerunner ship. Not just any old Forerunner ship, but a Dreadnought.
So how is that possible? According to this
http://halo.wikia.co...pace#Velocities
it seems like the Covenant ships are much faster than humananity's at this point. However the Forerunner tech should be that much again faster than the Covenant given the Covenant lesser understanding in general and imperfect imitation of Forerunner tech.
Thoughts? Was MC actually lying there petrified for a few days?

We don't know if that was the dreadnaught that he landed in on, as the comic bridges the gap, so for all we know, it could've been another forerunner ship that he cruised in on. Also, remember the fact that Halo 2 takes place in November/December 2552, and Halo 3 takes place in February/March 2553. Anything could've happened in the time gap, seeing as the chief didn't know that the Arbiter was allied with us, which means he had little or no contact in that time period.

Because if Johnson and the Arbiter didn't beat him, the first level of Halo 3 would have been very confusing.

More specifically, Bungie wanted your co-op player to be the Arbiter so they could make the co-op campaign seem more "canon". Thats how they got to Earth first.

The keyship was parked in orbit above the Earth for an undisclosed portion of time, as witnessed in Halo: Uprising.
