A fan tribute from the time which I found rather moving :
GCU Read 'Em and Weep to GSV Does My Mind Look Big in This?: A mutual friend says it's time to go. Do you have any associates near [system ID], some time in the next dozen megaseconds?
GSV Does My Mind... to ROU Not Just a Pretty Face: Fancy a detour to [system ID], since you're passing? There's some baggage to collect: [target designator]
ROU Not Just... to GSV Does My Mind...: It would stretch my schedule. What makes you think I've got the legs for that?
GSV Does My Mind... to ROU Not Just...: A little bird told me about your refit. Go on, you're just itching to try it out.
ROU Not Just... to GSV Does My Mind...: "Bird"? "Itching"? Have you gone native? Oh, all right then, since you're twisting my arm.
GSV Does My Mind... to ROU Not Just...: Look who's talking: you're the one with "arms" and "legs". Bet you can't do it in five megaseconds.
ROU Not Just... to GSV Does My Mind...: Aren't I'm supposed to say something like "Let's see the colour of your money"? Anyway, watch this.
GSV Does My Mind... to ROU Not Just...: I'm waiting. ... OK, that really is rather nice. Next time you're nearby I'll send you an avatar to perform an appropriate low whistle.
GSV Does My Mind... to GCU Read 'Em and Weep: Our friend should make his farewells, and be ready for displacement by ROU Not Just a Pretty Face at time [timestamp]. Are there any countermeasures in place?
GCU Read 'Em and Weep to GSV Does My Mind... and ROU Not Just...: Much obliged. No countermeasures, I'm afraid: it's all a bit stone axes. They still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea. No displacement, either: the Arbitrary doesn't want us frightening the horses. Scan-and-forward, if you please. The usual cover story is in place.
ROU Not Just... to GCU Read 'Em and Weep and GSV Does My Mind...: Sigh. I'll put my toys away then. A pity: it's an attractive system, but I always think those little blue planets look better with a ring. Or a really big crater. Who is this guy anyway? I'm dying to meet him. Or maybe I've got that the wrong way round. ... Scan complete. Oh, it's him. Let me know when you decant him and I'll drop by to pay my respects. Here you are: [entanglement scan stream]
