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.
