  Nah, that's "Half-Turn-M". :-)

  As my friend Toshi Yoshida likes to point out, "Turn-X is _still_ an
X!" The same would hold for Turn-O, I suppose...

  It's certainly possible, but I don't recall reading anything along
these lines. Where did you see/hear this?

  Well, colony drops were expressly prohibited by the Antarctic Treaty,
for all that's worth...

  Not in the TV series; there, the big bang was the result of Ma Kube's
Gyan blowing up. I guess when they cut the Gyan out of the Texas Colony
in the movies, the writers felt they had to come up with some other
explanation for the scale of the explosion. But a nuclear minefield
inside a colony does raise a lot more questions than it answers... ;-)
