The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter — it's the difference between a lightning bug and the lightning. — Mark Twain

comment A cross-[What] kind of romance?
The problem with "anthropomorphic" is that it means "assigning human characteristics to something which doesn't have them," like assuming a cat can talk. The AI is not anthropomorphized. It actually does have some human characteristics. "Anthropomorphic technosexual romance" would be a human acting as if his iPod has fallen in love with him because Shuffle constantly kicks up Josh Groban songs, and then the human starting to feel love for the iPod in return.

comment Too much exposition in my full-length play: how to fix it?
I think we would need to see a sample to be able to offer a fix. What's too much exposition for you might be too little for someone else.

@Mussri "To find a term for that you'll have to define what they have in common and make that a superset of what they are." Yes, but that's my problem. Seven of Nine is biological. The Holodoc is software. What's the superset?

eh, that sounds like one is "fully able" and one is "differently abled." I like the term, but those aren't the characters I'm working on.

I like "cross-carbon," although that does technically rule out Hortas (which are silicon-based lifeforms). However, getting it on with a two-meter asbestos pan pizza with acidic saliva is going to be problematic no matter what you call it.

Cross-biospheric would work for Terrans and Vulcans. It wouldn't cover Data and Lt. D'Sora, as that could have happened on our planet.
