  • The name Niner-7 may be a reference to the character Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager.
  • The name Fender may be a reference to Bender, a character from the television series Futurama.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • My expedition efficiency was critically reduced when a projectile impacted my locomotive actuator. (This is a reference to the popular "Arrow in the Knee" quote.)
  • And then Unit 492-8 said, "Who do you think I am, Unit 472-6?" HA HA HA
  • I built myself a taste mechanism, so I can drink some ale!
  • Have you defeated the Wall of <name of Guide>? (Reference to the rumor that the Guide is really the Wall of Flesh)
  • This sentence is false, or is it? (A common logical paradox often associated with robots)
  • Sometimes I come off a bit... Get it? a bit?
  • Sure, me and [Name of Pirate] are pals, but I hate it when his parrot does his business on me. That stuff's corrosive! (Only if Pirate is present)
  • So that "punk" lookin' chick is an inventor, eh? I think I could show her a thing or two! (Only if Steampunker is present)
