    But we need to use this in conversational speak:

    OH, GOD, THE SHIP SOAPED!

    The other night, my ship had a Spontaneous Dis-assembly.
    There I was, minding my own business, when a RUD suddenly happened! (I swear, I was just trying to change the rotor-piston toilet roll...)

    You can. Export a ship in SEToolbox, then import it again and fire it up. Since SEtoolbox keeps the coordinates and orientation, you have 2 duplicate ships colliding block for block. If it wasn't so performance killing I would have used it for my disaster scenarios.
    BTW that seems to be a random issue with ships double loading accidentally ATM...

    In the spirit of making our own terms and not stealing them from other games, I nominate:
    • Keened
    • Rotored
    • Pistoned-off
    They could be chained like the line from Poltergeist:

    "My Ship is Keened? NO, It's Pistoned-off!"

    hahaha, Im sure a few irradiated WoW Gnomes would agree:

    just remember the Goblins motto is: "if it doesnt explode, then it doesnt work"

    Error 404

    Your ship has unexpectedly ceased existence

    Would you like to send a error report?
