Definitely worthy of mention (to those who haven't already seen it), in Edge's Halo 2 article, Lead Designer Jaime Griesemer outlines an important aspect of the upcoming story:

"The Covenant is named for the pact binding its two primary races, the Elites and the Prophets. The Elites form the backbone of the Covenant military and the Prophets are the Covenant's political and spiritual leadership. Much of the game will focus on the relationship between these two races and on the hidden motives for their attack against humanity."

Though not directly quoted from Bungie staff, the article goes on to state that although defending Earth itself occupies the first part of the game, eventually the Master Chief must also take the fight back to a (the) Covenant home world.

All alone? Sounds daring :)
