  1. Rogue Tyger is awesome! Ive really enjoyed listening to these. Gave you 5 stars on Apple podcasts as well.

    I suspect that the writer has read some napoleonic era navy books (maybe the Master and Commander series), or at least did a lot of research. I notice small similarities at times, for example using the word “presently” to mean “soon.” This episode really reminded me of it, especially with Captain Kramer worrying about his ship’s paint job.

    1. You know, I’ve read all of the Hornblower books and most of the Aubrey/Maturin (Master and Commander) series, so it wouldn’t surprise me if that lingo stuck in there as something Tinker would archaically say. Patrick O’Brian’s rigorous research for the period leaves me in awe whenever I pick up his books (and I usually need to look up more than a few period-specific terms).

      C.S. Forester, I believe in his “Hornblower Companion” said that his ideas were like timbers sunken to the depths that only surfaced to be used in his books when they had sufficient barnacles on them — or something along those lines. I’m afraid I’m still quite the landlubber, but I do love injecting nautical language into space opera. While I don’t think I consciously was thinking of O’Brian and Forester when I used “presently” (as well as the image-conscious Captain Kramer), I think you’re probably right that the origin is those books.
