Another 30 must-know sci-fi words

We started with 75 words every sci-fi fan should know, added another 25 shortly thereafter (plus 10 sci-fi curse words), and now we've got another 30 examples of spec-fic slang. Still, we're less than half way to our goal of 366, so we can celebrate a fresh geek term everyday (including leap years). Check out what we've got, and start piling on, fellow bibliovores.
