My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.

and as far as I can tell the one decided upon..
What about knots? That's an accepted measurement.

I overlooked knots, was that used in the original? I have very little knowledge of knots, apart from that they're a nautical measurement.
Knots seem a little unusual in this situation; they seem better suited for TFTD.

1 knot = 1.852 km/hour = 1 nm/hour

Some countriesī military use km/h, m/s, knots, and almost every unit mankind has created...
I meant that in civil aviationīs slower speeds knots are standard.
