Given how one of the new MP maps is codenamed "smuggler," I suspect that this is for that map-viral marketing for the map, in a way.
It's probably going to be a map on 05 (hence 2401) that has been floodicized (like HC or under Isolation). I doubt there'll be a ton in the way of plot here, unfortunately.
It does indicate, however, that there's a monitor to the monitors, so to speak, who has judged 2401's conduct to be in violation of protocol, and indicates fallibility in that regard on the part of the Halo monitors. Interesting.

Woops, my bad for not checking this area of the forums. Jumped the gun a bit.

Anyways, I'm on the fence about the whole thing. I don't want to overhype what may just be lore of a singular downloadable map. Halo lore of any kind is still good, but unless the map is reall...worth-...hey waitaminute. I don't recall myself, perhaps someone can shed light on this. Has Bungie ever ruled out the possibility of downloadable campaign scenarios? Also, have they ever refernced this new set of DLC directly as another "Map Pack?". Just throwing ideas out there. Who knows, this all could just be way out of line and already proven false in previous updates. I just didn't want to sift through every update looking for these answers. Input?

Even if they did, what could they add? And would we want them to? I wouldn't. Halo 3 ended the story better than I could have imagined. I don't want to ruin that by opening it back up again.Why can't stories just stay concise and clearly structured like they did back in the day? Star Wars is an example of almost doing it right. Episodes 4-6: Awesome. pure perfection. 1-3: Also great, and I didn't mind that they were prequels because that's how Lucas had planned them since the beginning. Part of Luca's original vision. Great job! Comic books, video games, novels... wait, what? The emperor gets reincarnated after Episode 6? What? What happened to my happy ending? Why wasn't that closure point enough? Luckily, though, for the most part, those things outside of the movies are not usually considered canon. But there would be no excuse to not consider something canon if Bungie produces it. Like, there's simply no need to add anything to the Master Chief's story. It's done, and perfect! Sometimes things are better left unexplained. If Bungie did (however unlikely) add campaign scenarios, I would be teh sadz and disappointed.

Eh, just speculation really. I wasn't for or against the idea yet. Just kinda throwing ideas out there.

But to add to what you said, yea, Master Chief's story is done, but Master Chief's story wasn't the only one. It was the part you played yes, but there was so much more going on in the background and before you even got there that was also explained and established as canon, but never saw for yourself or experienced. I personally think it'd be neat to see the story unfold from a different angle. Also, that time speculation could have been started at any point. That could've taken place 287 years from any date, considering that the date of the transmission (or whatever) wasn't established. Also, no one knows who or what is making these reports or requests, given that we don't know when any of this took place.

I'm always up for more exposition. Wonder if this is just a one hit thing, or if we should expect more messages. And if so, where should we look?

I think that Luke Smith is jerking us around. Probably just another hint at what this map "Smuggler" will be. I was excited there for a moment, though.

I'm hoping that we have another time-filler. I don't really care what it's for (be it a map, game announcement... hell, a bag of chips), these things are always fun.

However, I think the forums have already dissected what we already have to the point of death. There's not much more that can be said that hasn't been already. We look for clues (someone the other mentioned the letters "S" and "T" being suspicious in an HBO and Bungie posting... a clue, perhaps?) in all the usual places and wait for something to show up. If nothing, we are sadly disappointed. If something, we put our thinking caps on and prepare for epicness.
