Remarks:
Mike Lorenzen (original C64 version): "My favorite Psi-5 story... Accolade assigned a administrative assistant to off load non game design work so we could focus. I gave him (Mike Craven) the task of trying to come up with cool sounding parts of the ship that would break while under attack. He did not supply the list promptly or completely.

To punish him I filled the named table entries of devices with "Craven, later").

Since there were many unnamed entries, the stub "Craven,later" was seen often during game testing as the most fragile device on the ship. Since we did not know part of the ship it was it really did not effect any part of the ship. To punish him further at game release, I took the comma out and made "Cravenlater" as the most fragile thing on the ship and it did absolutely nothing (sort of my opinion of any management position to help a single person game design.)

There has been much speculation among players about what the Cravenlater was and how important it was... Now you know the real truth."
