Okay so Selenis' cover name in this episode: "Mer Sidereus." "Sidereus" is Latin for "sidereal," an actual English word meaning "starry," sorta, and I came across it in the title of Galileo's "Sidereus Nuncius," his treatise based on his early telescopic observations of heavenly bodies. "Mer" came from the Latin "mare," or "sea"; they stick that on the front of names of craters on the Moon, for instance, so that's kind of in keeping with Selenis' lunar naming scheme. "Mer" is also exactly how "sea" is spelled in French, I guess. Here I think of it as pronounced to rhyme with "her," rather than "hair" as it would be in Latin or French; that would be even more confusing anyway since it would sound exactly like the French word for "mother," which is what Selenis calls her primary computer program. And "Mer" is already way too similar to "Mar," the last name of the head of Core Sys corp from earlier episodes. Oh my stars!

I knew it had something to do with mermaids.
