The Templin Institute : Attention Institute Staff! Did you know we have a Discord? Want to yell at Larissa and Marc in person?! Go here:

Spacedock : "You ever serve on a space-time ship all out in space? I was on one for years, but can't ever remember the name. I mean, how come we got such complicating ship-time names. Every time you make intel in a battle, the ship's probably blowed up by the time you finish, like "Sir, they're firing missiles pew pew pew at the CSS Pinnacle of Shadowy Gumption and—oh, yup too late! It's explodeded! Don't worry, here comes the Unyielding Double—pew never mind!" Gotta give ships littler names like Murder, Flip, or Bob! That's way safer!" - The Wisest Grunt Ever.

Lonewolfxx7 : Favorite thing about this video is the fact they use all the covenant names and not "Grunt, elite or brute"

Arturo Reyes Cortez : The Covenant is basically what would happen if you mix Scientology, radical Islam, Medieval Catholicism, American Evangelism, advanced alien technology that they barely understand, and a lot of racism. Humans may have less advanced technology to fight back, but they made their own technology and have a military that doesn't require blind faith to continue fighting.

Gerardo Reyes : The covenant is so interesting and cool. Templin institute you guys are amazing. Keep doing this awesome content.

Alexandre Arrivé : *Time was your ally human, but now it has abandoned you. The Forerunners have returned.* What a game! Halo is amongst the greatest gaming franchise ever in my heart, the image of the Pelicans dropping through the atmosphere, with the music, oh man. Yet another great episode, continuez ainsi, Institut Templin !

Jimmy Seaver : Nice touch with having the _Infinity_ accentuate your point on how Mankind was poised to dominate the Galaxy.

Brandon Dinh : Wort wort wort

Moon Seal : Sangheili Major: "Brute ships. Staggered line! Shipmaster, they outnumber us, three-to-one!" Shipmaster Rtas 'Vadum: "Then it is an even fight."

Silenced Games : Can you do a video on the forerunners?

Avalanche : Humanity fought longer and harder than any species the Covenant had ever encountered. It was both the largest and most technologically advanced non-Covenant species they had met, and after 27 years of endless war they still held on to their homeworld. No wonder the Elites got pissed with the Prophets. They respect honour and strength, so after 27 years of genocide against a species that had long ago ticked all the boxes for Covenant citizenship they were really having a hard time justifying more losses. Throw in some civil war action and the breaking of the entire Covenant religion and... BAM. No more Covenant. Great video!

Centurian128 : "When we joined the Covenant, we took an Oath!" "According to our station! All without exception!" "On the blood of our fathers... on the blood of our sons, we swore to uphold the Covenant!" "Even to our dying breath!" "Those who would break this oath are Heretics... Worthy of neither pity, nor mercy! Even now, They use our Lord's creations to broadcast their lies!" "We shall grind them into dust!" "And continue our march to glorious salvation!"

Edgy Dad : "Were not gonna allow those alien bastards to take this giant metal hoola hoop!"

Silenced Games : Video starts at 0:00 you’re welcome

Pyroskies : Considering how the Covenant referred to humanity as being a hellish race with ODSTs being considered imps and Spartans viewed as demons, I do wonder if any marines, ODST, or even Spartans took to play on the Covenant fears and made there armor look more demonic? Would make for a great story in Halo.

SomeDudeOnaCouch : "But these are my elites, their lives matter to me yours does not." "That makes two of us." "Mmhh.." The original trilogy has so many quotable moments it's insane. Bungies writing was top tier back in the day.

LtCWest : UNSC Infinity plowing through a Covenant cruiser will never get old. ^^ Its actually kind of ironic, if the Covenant hadnt attacked humanity, we would have ripped ourselves appart in petty civil wars and conflicts. All the prophets had to to was to wait, maybe 10 years after the date of first contact, the Insuraction would have gained enough tracktion to openly oppose the UNSC. But the Prophets became greedy and paid the price for it...

isaac navarro : I love the intensity of this narrator's voice. It makes the video engaging and feel as if she is reporting on actual events instead of lore.

Rapa Nuii : *Remember Reach!* Never Forget!

Covenant Canon : By the Prophets, this is by far your guy’s best video to date! As a Covenant nerd, you guys were on point with every detail! Utter perfection! Keep up the good work Templin. Covenant Canon supports your channel!

Erndem Sterff Prederctions : I AM TRUUUTH. THE VOICE OF THE COVENANT.

Reece Dore : *Foaming at the mouth and shaking uncontrollably* SOOOOOOOOOOOO! MUUUUUUUUUUUUCCH! HERESY!

Josh Powell-Morris : “When you first saw Halo, were you blinded by its majesty?” “Blinded?” “Paralysed? Dumbstruck?”

Fulgrim2 : Any hope for a video on S.H.I.E.L.D. at some point?

Gaming Dude : I sometimes wonder how the UNSC would have fared if the Covenant had been fighting a conventional war against humanity (merely trying to incorporate them into the Covenant, not commit genocide)

A05 ODST : "All who walk the blessed path will find salvation, even in death. Out of darkness, these blades will light our way. Glory and honor guide our ascension. On the blood of our fathers, on the blood of our sons. The true devotee honors our name with actions, not words. Victory is secured not from the throne, but from the frontlines. With this sacrament of blood we journey into the divine beyond."

beta wave : Wort Wort Wort.

Arcane_Rogue : Video on the C.O.G from Gears of War?

David James Ferguson : *Loud orchestra music*

Jack Dugan : if they came to hear me beg, they will be disappointed.

Clems First : Could you do SCP next pls ?(Secure Contain Protect) Amazing job with the video as always. This video seems to be way better than all the others.The voice acting was practicly perfect.

Martin Conway : No mention of the Banished? Impossible! The Archives must be Incomplete!

MrDrProf : "The message just repeats 'regret. Regret. Regret.'" "Catchy. What do you think it means?" "Dear humanity: we regret being alien bastards, we regret coming to earth, and we most certainly regret that the corps just blew up our raggity-ass fleet! OOH RAH"

Jailbot Mark 1 : Reminder that glassing is mainly a psychological weapon and it would take even the covenant a ridiculous amount of time to completely glass a planet, but ONI concealed this and even sabotaged planetary evacuations to uphold the boogeyman that was glassing

Dark_ShadowYT -Handygames und mehr- : The true leader was YapYap the DESTROYER

Thomas Veerman : Oh man, this is a big one EDIT: after watching, one of my favourite videos from you. Would love to see one on the forerunners or even one of the smaller factions like the Insurrectionists, ONI or the Abiding Truth.

Rinsablesnowy : Goddamn I can’t believe it’s been so long since I played halo

Homem Desconhecido : I am waiting for this since the UNSC video and I am here since the UNSC video

doom7ish : Violent Religious Genocidal Aliens...alright who took these guys out of Warhammer 40k? Edit: before you ask, I've played Halo (1-3 played a bit of 4 but skip both 4-5.)

My Hentai Girl : Hurray Even though i never even touch a Halo games, still interested in video game lore

RubikPanda : Been looking forward to a video on the Covenant! Any chance of a video on the Earth Kingdom from Avatar: The Last Airbender?

mauwalker : I’d like to see you all do the Church of Unitology, the EarthGov, and the Sovereign Colonies/Sovereign Colonies Armed Forces from the “Dead Space” franchise.

Upmost animal 82 : Fire up the glassing beams!

Ash Kenobi : They destroyed that shipment, we needed the fruit!

Mechanic 93 : Still the coolest and badass aliens to this day

Centurian128 : Wow, in 17 minutes of watching this it went from 27 likes to 242. I'd say you've gained quite the following.

DrakeMarvell : Just remember.....#HumanityFirst

Thel 'Vadam : The swords of sanghelios please.

Tory Allen : To think Bungie had one masterminded this story. Now they make stories about how to buy loot boxes.
