It is pretty cool. Personally, I think Iain M Banks has the best ship names, in his Culture books.

Hmmm....

What does the BR in "BR Surgery" stand for?

Something about paired particles acting in sync in spite of the distance between them.

And I always thought "bioretributive" was more a punishment than an enhancement; you know, as in "retribution." Turning someone into a freak, and making them serve you, like the dismemberment girl.

Yep, the resonance thing.
And BR is punishment, of course [that's why I put in the uglier/slave stuff.]

your question...

I have a feeling the quiz will be stuck here for some time. Laughing

My guess: 3 times less than offering her coffee. Razz

Do you actually have a figure??

H***, no! Evil or Very Mad

OK, an easier one: Why are ships said to "resume tard"?

Hahaha, not knowing the answer to your question is cheating. Wink

The phrase was due to an initial misunderstanding of how the Gap drive worked. Despite the fact that tachyons and FTL was not involved, they still used the terms "enter tach'" and "resume tard" to represent entering and leaving the gap.

Can I assume that this question is to go unanswered?
