Algol is "pretty neat", according to a chant recited by crowds outside the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Teleport Systems factory on Happi-Werld III. It is home to the ferocious Algolian Suntiger, the delicious Algolian Claret, and disgusting foods like the Algolian Zylatburger, made from the most unpleasant parts of the Zylat, a most unpleasant beast.

TriviaEdit

  • The name Algol derives from the Arabic رأس الغول ra's al-ghūl : head (ra's) of the ogre (al-ghūl), an etymology that also gives rise to the English word 'ghoul'. Thus, Beta Perseus as a heavenly body is also know as the Demon Star.
  • ALGOL is also a contraction of ALGOrithm Language, one of the earliest computer programming forms.
