1 Spanners: You mean you didn't download the ship's software patches? We don't even have the autopilot software??
2 Serron: We didn't have the bandwidth! Or the memory!
3 Spanners: We have tons of memory! What's in all the exabytes of memory that we have?
4 Iki Piki: Looks like pirated video games...
4 Serron: Don't delete those!

Actually, given the rapid progression of computer memory sizes, exabytes is probably way too low for this setting. An exabyte is a million terabytes, and many people these days have a terabyte or more of storage memory in their current desktop computers. (Mine has 3 terabytes, and is approaching half full, mostly with photos I've taken).

So the Legacy has roughly the equivalent of a few million present-day desktop computers on board. Which, loosely applying Moore's Law, should be available in standard desktop computers by some time around the years 2050-2060.
