This statement seems off to me. On the show when we see visible glowing lines cross the screen, my understanding is that those must be particle beams, plasma, or something of some sort. In my experience, even in air lasers aren't visible except at the point of impact.

Canonicity

Where dose "90% canonical" come from exactly? From what I understand, only the Icarus/Anna half of the book is canon, so wouldn't "50%" be a little more accurate? Blind Wolf 08:23, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
