Re: What does 'nu' mean?

'Nu' is an English phonemic representation of a letter of the Greek alphabet.

Whenever I see it I think of Doctors Mew New and Omicron Pie from the Barchester Chronicles.

On the subject of its misuse in science fiction conversations, I quite like the ALT tag since it actually does distinguish between [gag] mirror which is an abomination which should never have been entertained EVER; and parallel, which is only really well dealt with in Sliders and Stargate. Trek writers were far too limited in their interpretation of this.
They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
