Re: Some "Court Martial" notes.

"Jettison" implies " get rid of." Were it a probe, they would say "launch" or "release" wouldn't they?

As to the math line, I had a TA in college math who would say "eecks to the een." It took us weeks to figure out he meant x to the n power. (I was in pretty low math.) MAYbe in the far future, in a specific (auditory science) setting, "one" does mean the initial starting value. I like that explanation. Has anyone brought up again the computer getting Spock's service rank wrong?
