"Eureka!"

Archimedes (287-212 BC) was an ancient Greek mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher. He is best remembered for discovering the principles of density and buoyancy. According to accounts, he had an epiphany in the bathtub and shouting "Eureka!" ("I have found it!) leaped out into the city streets, unclothed.

In the 1996 Creature Shop TV movie Gulliver's Travels, Archimedes is among the historical figures conjured in the home of The Sorceror, along with Cleopatra, Plato, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, and Marc Anthony, amongst others. Re-experiencing the joys of discover, Archimedes gleefully shouts his famous phrase, this time partially clad in a towel.

Summary

A Remote Scanning Outpost located on the edge of the Sigma Octanus system, the Archimedes was designed to detect incoming threats to the Sigma Octanus System. It was crewed by three individuals. On July 17, 2552, the Archimedes detected a large mass in Slipspace. Lovell believed that it was simply a large asteroid and did not investigate further. However, it turned out to be a hostile Covenant force inbound for Commander Keyes' battle group. Ensign William Lovell worked aboard this station and, because of this incident, he was transferred to the Iroquois by Captain Keyes.

Trivia

  • Archimedes was a Greek mathematician, philosopher, and inventor who came up with many scientific and mathematical contributions that are still in use today. For example, he derived the formula of a circle without the use of calculus and discovered the length of extremely large real-world objects through use of trigonometry.
