A keen insight by Hilary Goldstein, writer of IGN's HGN review:

There's an interesting parallel between "Infinite Succor" and "Breaking Quarantine." Both the Spec-Ops Commander and Sergeant Johnson have the same role, albeit one is for the Covenant and the other for the humans. Both are attempting to escape a first encounter with the Flood. Halo 2 itself featured parallel storytelling with gamers switching between control of Master Chief and the Arbiter. Perhaps including such similar stories in the HGN has a thematic significance in the grander scale of the Halo storyline. Or maybe it's merely coincidence.

Honestly, probably not ;)
