Trope-a-Day: Turbine Blender

Turbine Blender: Very much averted as anything somebody might want to do.  Those turbines are expensive.  (And even though they can build much stronger turbine blades with the state-of-the-art in the Worlds’ materials science, that’s because they want to operate them in the new envelope thus opened up – and the strike effects can therefore still overstress them.)

(Sorry, would-be Malcolm Reynolds imitators…)
