Leet language for the word "Super", using the same meaning.

Underground
The Underground is basically the Red’s equivalent of the Police Station. A player may ask the Grimy Trader in the Lost Trader’s Tavern located on the StarDock about the 'Mafia' or the 'Underground' for the password to gain access. Once the password has been acquired the player can press 'U' to into the Underground from the StarDock’s main menu. Player’s with a 200 or higher positive alignment will not be permitted access. If the incorrect password is entered consecutively more then once, the player will loose 1/2 of their experience and all of their on-hand credits; after-which if the wrong password is entered again that player will be murdered. When the player is murdered, their experience and alignment are both reset to 0, (hence, this is a cheap way for a Red to turn Blue, although it is not the most turn efficient, unless this tactic is performed just prior to Extern.) The Underground permits players to post or claim rewards on opposing players and to change their actual user name at a cost of: ((7 * Per Point of Experience) + 100). Also referred to as: Mafia.

Unlimited Turn Game
In these types of games, the use of turns is not a factor in playing in portion of the game, other then how a task is chosen to be completed, i.e. Express-warping for colonists would require more time then Bwarping and Twarping to acquire the same number of colonists. Unlimited games may or may not have a time limit imposed within them, which would require the planning of an additional strategic planning to compete. When playing in Unlimited Turn Games the Turns Used Prompts are never displayed. The use of Photons in Unlimited Turn Games will dampen a Photoned player for 1-minute per second of the Photons duration, i.e. a 10-second duration would result in a 10-minute dampening time. Also referred to as: UTG.

USO
An acronym for: United States Open, a yearly TradeWars 2002 tournament.
