// @ Graybeard, I believe Matsiyan was referring to either HHGG, or Star Trek TOS and TNG, but the language is blast from the past for him too.

// And the Algol (Caput Larvae, Ra’s al Ghūl “the Head of the Demon”, Rōsh ha Sāṭān) rabbithole reminded me of other things: in the Tékumel game by M. A. R. Barker (another blast from the past… though we have several friends who play it to this day) Algol is the home sun of the Tinalíya, or Gnomes; and Unukalhai (Alpha Serpentis, Unuq al-Ħayyah “the Serpent’s Neck”, Cor Serpentis) is the home sun of the Hegléth, or Swamp Folk. So now we can insult the Unukalhai by calling them Swampies.
