Special Ops Teams take a lot of trouble to ensure that their jargon is at least twice as obscure
as everyone else's.|
Some Special Ops Teams also like to engage in conversations with members of other branches of the Alliance in order to see just how long they can get away with talking at cross purposes. Special Ops especially enjoy confusing the stuffing out of Alliance Intel operatives, who have their own slang although most Special Ops Teams have figured out all of their phrases. With a Special Operative around, conversations seem to get just plain weird: phrases like "5-G takeoff," "cuddly toy," "take a gander" and "she's cute" have completely different meanings.
The following list is already somewhat out of date, as Special Ops Team slang is constantly revised to ensure that no one else is ever in danger of understanding what Special Ops personnel are talking about.
#Chicken Alarm: A hazard assessment, follows an exponential sequence: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 13 Chicken Alarms have been known. 13 is a Death Star sighting, 8 is a fleet arriving in-system, 5 is a solitary Star Destroyer, 3 is a ground army, 2 is a small fleet, 1 is any other sizable operation. This term is also used to rate the relative danger of a mission.|
#G's: (7G's, 8G's) Number of hostile aliens.
23er: In Alliance Intelligence, an agent who has made 20 field assignments and been retired; in Special Ops, any very competent agent.
ABH: Average Bounty Hunter, or rather, above-average bounty hunter.
Acquisition Run: Any combat operation presenting opportunities for large-scale theft.
