As for his choice of names, “Uru” is obviously appropriate. It’s definitely what Eli would have used.

I must not be aware of the whole significance of this word, but it certainly seemed to touch a nerve with Kodama today. Am I the only one out of this loop, or does Kodama just need another vacation already?

Sorry for ignoring your question, Michael. It’s been a busy week. :)

It’s appropriate for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the D’ni meaning of the word. Beyond that, it also has meanings in several surface languages that are indicitave of its D’ni origin.

If you’re still interested, I can fill you in more at this week’s meeting.
