Imagine that the area you start in on Marathon 1 is an emergency entrence into the ship from the docking bay, and the red guy staring at you is actually Tycho, watching you enter into the ship.

Why get rid of something when you can just give it a story?

Correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't think it even has a story, per-say. I just remember it as a visual connection between the two games, with no actual story behind it.

It's supposed to be the Security Cyborg's memories from before he died and became a mjollnir mark IV battleroid 800 years later. Hence the lines in the instruction manual stating he has a sense of deja vu, like this is all familiar to him but he can't remember exactly what.

This discussion is pointless. Use Hopper's M1A1 fixes plugin, or wait a while for an even better fix.

Bored.

I found this after looking at original marathon scetches.

Looks like Bungie came up with the idea of the Flood much earlier than Halo, and that it first materialized as an enemy in Marathon. They later scrapped the idea for it looking too much like the Elephant man, and infringment on copyright law well unwanted.
