Dr. Halsey's Journal


Halseys-Journal-Inside.jpg Halseys-Journal-Inserts.jpg

Catherine Halsey's journal is a special edition bonus packaged with Halo: Reach, which reveals much more detail of Halsey's story and knowledge - from armour sketches, to ONI logs and communications, and much more. It's one the most intricate, quality bonus items bundled with any Halo product, and worth having in any decent Halo collection.
  • The journal isn't available for purchase independently, however used copies may be available.
  • The Halo: Reach Limited Edition contains the journal, which can still be purchased where available.


The journal itself contains a wealth of knowledge from Halsey, but also came packaged with additional inserts, briefly outlined below.

On the reverse is a note to Halsey:

As far as I know, we don't officially have anything in this sector - we certainly don't have anything as BIG as this seems to be. Size-wise, it's got to be something in the neighborhood of Uranus XV (Puck) ... AND this is a 10 min. exposure - no p/y/r - this object definitely exhibits what I would have to describe as guided movement.

I know the chatternet isn't your kinda thing, but if you want to weigh in on this >> <sci.space.science.misc> ... it'll be pretty obvious once you're in.
