The S-Connection

So... The Sequence and the Suit work for the Set, and there might be a Series involved.


I can't help but feel like this alliteration is important, some kind of hint.


Also, they're off-worlders planning an invasion, right? Everyone else got that from the scene in the prison? Or am I just crazy?

Actually, aside from them all being collective nouns, these names also have a playing cards theme going on.

SET - This is a generic collective term for cards. Also, it means three of a kind in poker.

SUIT - The set of cards with the same "pips" (Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs or Spades).

SEQUENCE - The set of two or more cards adjacent in rank.

ARRAY - The seven columns of cards dealt at the start of a solitaire game.

SERIES - This is the only term that doesn't seem to have a card game-specific definition (though perhaps I just didn't use the right Google search keywords), but "a series of plays" or "a series of games" can apply to card games.

Nice catch, Skaa, although right now the mathematical meanings may be more significant, since according to Suit the Series put great value on technological superiority and the red-eyed immortal who spoke to him had a very technical pattern of speech.

Well, code names need not have anything to do with the nature of an organization that uses them. Besides, how does "suit" fit a mathematical theme?
