Just finished Halo:Cryptum, and just wondered what this is about, from the tribunal for the Master Builder that turned into an attack by the Halo's. Please pardon any misquotations.
"All the rates were represented, except the engineers OF COURSE"

Thanks for writing, Jeff--and that's a good question. In this usage, and in Halo, "engineers" refers to a special group of beings not immediately related to the Forerunners. Look it up!
