** Throughout the series, we see many different types of ships, from junk-like fishing boats armed with ballistae to carrier-sized wooden Homes (several of which later undergo refits to ''become'' carriers), from East Indiaman-derived frigates and steam/sail hybrids to WorldWarOne and WorldWarTwo-era ships (including a submarine). This series has as much SchizoTech as it can fit, short of putting FrickinLaserBeams or missiles on wooden ships.

Added DiffLines:

* MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/{{Sphere}}'' occurs on its majority on a U.S. Navy UnderwaterBase at the bottom of the ocean, and there is a constant mention of how the extreme depths are a challenge for both man and machine (even something as simple as cooking gets a whole lot more complicated when done in a helium/oxygen environment).
