In Response To: Re: What ARE Simulacrums? (Forrest of B.org)

: "Ah, lucky you. I've found a new distraction. I am going to play with
: the Alien virtual parasites. I'll look you up when you arrive..." --
: M1 manual page 3 (second to last paragraph)

Neural parasites = virtual parasites?

: I did always wonder what that was a reference to. I think I used to think it
: had something to do with the Wasps or Lookers, just because parasites made
: me think of insects, but "virtual" suggests some sort of
: parasite of computer systems. Curiouser and curiouser...

I've always interpreted that as the Compliers and their hacking of the ship's computer net. Leela refers to alien viruses and hoping that they have not infiltrated the Manufacturing Systems and later she herself fears the 'oncoming viruses'.
