    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Notice that the pregnant woman in the bar was drinking some sort of fermented milk; fermentation results in an alcoholic beverage. Many Central Asian people, such as the Turks and Mongols produce this type of beverage, most commonly known as koumiss. It has an alcoholic content which ranges from .7% to 2.5%, whereas a typical beer has about 3.5% to 7% alcohol.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Tyr: How are you doing?
        Trance: (sadly) My tail itches.
        Tyr: Then it isn't really gone, is it?
        (Trance smiles)

      • Trance: Alcohol doesn't affect me the same way it does you.
        Beka: Yeah, right, like that time on Diphda 5. Next, you'll tell me you've got a hollow leg.
        Trance: No, but I know where to get one.

      • Dylan: How you holding up there, soldier?
        Trance: I'm pretty good. I'm actually really good, except my tail is gone. My butt kinda hurts. You wanna look?
        Dylan: Uh. No. You rest.

      • Dylan: So, how are we looking?
        Beka: Like targets. (pause) You know, I've gotten used to people shooting at me whenever you're around, but couldn't you have picked a more scenic location? I mean, a ramshackle bar on a backwater world whose main export seems to be miserable people?
        Dylan: I told you this was gonna be an adventure.
        Beka: An adventure. Sure. Excuse me while I try to contain myself.
        Dylan: You know, these people, it's not their fault they're miserable. That's why you and I are gonna survive this thing. So we can work on making their lives better. Even if it is just a little at a time.
        Beka: If I didn't think that were true, I wouldn't be here. But in case we don't make it through the night, thanks for the adventure.
        Dylan: We aim to please.

      • Trance: (in a strangled voice) I can't believe that it's gone. My tail... is gone. I didn't even get to say goodbye to it. It was so pretty. My poor tail.

      • Hsigo: You think you can stop me, you overgrown grape?
        Trance: I know this might be a stretch for you, but think. You're twice as big as me, and you look pretty scary, but I am still standing up to you. So either I'm crazy, or I'm really, really dangerous. Would you like to guess which? I didn't think so.

      • Life? Life's pretty much a
        knife-fight in a dirt-floored bar:
        And if they get you down,
        you best get back up.

        Gunnery Sergeant Hywell Cy'rabia,
        CY 4681.
