Stick a cork in it!
Sally looks excessively horrified considering that the ship’s lavatory facilities are actually part of her – you’d think she’d be used to these sorts of human biology things by now. (Or maybe that’s why she’s horrified?- She had turned off the sensors in those parts of the ship because she really didn’t want to know what was going on inside of her “body” and now she knows too much!) 😮
Why does this ship have so many damned sensors in waste reclamation!?! *virtual barf*
It cost extra to add all those sensors there, but Arjnod thought it was hilarious! 😀
(Also might explain why Dimmer had a rather difficult attitude towards the biological life forms on his ship)
Hmm… you might be on to something there…
Waste has useful materials in it, many of those materials are used in explosives and fertilizers. It’s prudent to monitor how much oxygen and heat those materials have present. Having the right filters and equipment in place, you can siphon off useful gases and minerals. The left over waste can then be used for high quality fertilizer that is useful for a hydroponics bay or trade with farming worlds.
“Farming”? “Hydroponics”? Isn’t that the stuff that ancient primitives used to use to make food when they before they invented molecular Replicators? How quaint.
Protein chains for the replication systems have to come from some where. Once you program that meal into the replication system, it always tastes the same. Sure it will keep you alive, but who wants to eat the same thing all the time.
SGT Lewis, you’re reminding my why I loved the book The Martian so much. That was a hell of a good science fiction read (with emphasis on the science)!
All great stuff, but at the end of the day… poo poo…
