Why is it called sis_ship?
« on: June 03, 2010, 08:30:50 am »

OK, here's a Question of utmost importance!

Why is the main ship, the Precursor vessel a.k.a. tug labeled sis_ship everywhere in the source code, I mean... Where does it come from?
SIS. Ship Is Ship? Super Intelligent Ship.? Symbian Installation System?? Swedish Institute for Standards?

Yarr, it's driving me nuts!

We asked the same question in the first IRC chat session with TFB.
The answer (from Fred Ford): Super-Integrated-Starship
