A joke currently in circulation:
My wife asked why I carried a gun around the house. I told her: fear of CIA.
She laughed. I laughed. The Amazon Echo laughed.
I shot the echo.
The guys listening in – be it Solomani Security, Imperial Intelligence, or even the more sophisticated Vargr/Vilani piracy conglomerates – changes, but some Travellers have above-the-mean levels of paranoia for surprisingly good reasons.
It’s hard to shoot the ship computer, though. Sometimes, you need more than a good trigger, to get the job done.
