Legendary Planet - A safehaven for Reclaimers?

Matt sends us a theory regarding the planet seen in the Halo 3 Legendary Ending - Did Mendicant Bias intend to send the Reclaimer to the Halo 3 Legendary planet in an attempt to keep him "safe"?

Here's something for the Story page... something that has probably already come up already, but either way...

------

Terminal 7 on Legendary has a bit that reads,

"And so here at the end of my life, I do once again betray a former master. The path ahead is fraught with peril.

But I will do all I can to keep it stable - keep you safe. I'm not so foolish to think this will absolve me of my sins. One life hardly balances billions.

But I would have my masters know that I have changed.

And you shall be my example."

I've always thought that the rebuilt Installation 04 would be sent to its destination through the Portal. Once it's done, the Ark would create a portal to the coordinates of whever the installation was supposed to be, and send it through.

Meaning that the portal's destination can be controlled (of course).

So, what if Mendicant's idea of keeping his newly found Reclaimer "safe" was to send him to the world seen in the Legendary ending? Whatever that world is, Mendicant used the last moments of his existence to redirect the Chief and Cortana to the Forerunner world. (Assuming that he was destroyed or damaged in 04's explosion, but he might not have been)

And that world might not be the happiest place ever, as Mendicant admits. Seeing as he knows about it, it's probable that the Gravemind does too.

Mendicant's one thoughtful bud, it seems ...
