When does she get wet? How long till she gets her first rail-gun?

Interesting tidbit:

The Zumwalt-class is only 10 feet shorter than the Graf Spee and 8 feet shorter than the battleship USS Pennsylvania.

Maybe we should think about reviving the idea of 'Dreadnaught' class to describe her.

whatever nickname the XO had got changed to Spock.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

actually this is about as close to the concept of the 'arsenal ship' as we're going to see.

Those Ohio SSGN conversions are essentially 'arsenal subs'. 154 Tomahawks could ruin anyone's day.
