So I was just re-watching episode 9 and during the scene where Coran and Lance are cleaning the cryopods, Coran actually tells us what his military area was, at least when he was a cadet: aeronautics sub-tech nanoweaponry unit

That sounds to me like…tiny flying weapons? Whatever it involved, it sounds like something that would need some serious engineering skills. Coran is probably a hell of a lot more intelligent than it sometimes seems. And I really like the idea that he’s the sort of super smart guy who might sometimes mess up finger counting, but is an absolute genius in his chosen field


“Go to an art theater and do some independent-shit, you idiot*!
But then you will you will work your ass of as an Aldi cashier when you’re 40”

*Wurzelpeter is actually a liquor that originated in Berlin that is also produced there. In this context it can be translated as “idiot”.

Also, working at Aldi when you’re 40 isn’t exactly a dream career, I suppose it can be compared to working at Walmart.
