I put coffee in the drive pod, once. Out of curiosity. I’m not really curious about stuff anymore.

Technobable is the bane of good sci-fi. Fakey jargon was always the most grating part of Star Trek for me, so I tend to shy away from it when writing. On the other hand, really stupid sounding words are an essential part of a balanced comedy breakfast. So herein I make a pledge to you that Vagabond Starlight shall never feature inane, unscientific, thoroughly-pointless, pseudo-technological nonsense words as an explanation for what has happen, what is going on, or what is going to happen.

Unless it’s really, really funny.
