    technically, Pluto is now categorized as "dwarf planet", so...Charon is a dwarf moon, I guess?

    Some asteroids have moons as well. Moons around asteroids and dwarf planets are called "minor-planet moons"

    I hear Charon uses crypto-currency these days. Obols just aren't lethal tender anymore...

    Now I am alarmed and concerned to know what tender is lethal. And who is it lethal to? Can I spend it and it's lethal to the recipient or if I spend it it is lethal to me?

    Fortunately, the TOS unis are said to be "new" so if DSC stays on the air long enough, they'll eventually get them. :techman:

    Charon (the deity) is not another name for Pluto. Charon works for Pluto.
