Whoa, things just got heavy!
Time to raid some databases! Alright you scurvy louts time for some digital piracy and plundering. Yeargh! Sorry, I don’t mean to steal Captain Slime Beards thunder on this one. Please don’t break out the pain cane just yet.
Data Quest! There’s a nice ring to that.
Time to don the VR helmets and surf the sea of information and lay out the data nets. I am sure the crew can find boat loads of information with SBs help.
Very evocative of Neuromancer there.
See, all you parents, this is exactly why you need to teach your kids at the earliest possibleage their home address, mom and dad’s phone number, and what planet they are on. Keeps stuff like this from happening.
Not just that, but what system. Colonists are always using the same damned names.
Yeah, you’ve got to remember if you’re from New New New New Earth, or New New New New New Earth.
How many Earth 2s to you think are out there? Everyone was travelling, how were they supposed to have any idea what the other guys were doing?!
There’s estimated something on the order of 1billion-10billion habitable-zone worlds in the Milky Way alone, and only 100,000-ish commonly understood words in the English language, so even if they used all of them for names, each would have to be used 10,000-100,000 times! And you know “Earth” would get used more than average. I’m from New^3482 Earth 76.5beta. No wonder she can’t remember her home planet!
I suppose they could also use words from non-English languages, but then how would the aliens understand them? Everyone who’s ever watched sci-fi knows aliens all speak English.
Our cast and crew don’t actually speak English. I just translate everything to make it easier for you, the readers.
