Who designed that ship anyway?	Couldn't NASA come up with a system that
finds hull breaches faster than a can of Dr. Pepper?  

Didn't anyone put pressure sensors in the fuel system?	"Hmm.  Fuel line
didn't come up to normal pressure.  Bypass it."  

I think I know what kind on computer was running the ship... a HAL 2000.
about unhelpful bordering on fatal.  "Pressure dropping...Pressure
