They are switching to email, giving up the traditional teletype style messaging system.  Now commands will no longer be read in a continuous shout.

THAT SEEMS LIKE A VERY REASONABLE CHANGE.

How will they hear themselves over the whining of sailors complaining about catered 4-month cruises to Belize?

ROFL!
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
