Marco Pollo/Marki: The Marcopo was a shuttle craft for the Taupoian starship Sunrise. The shuttle was equipped with an experimental computer, capable of interacting with the crew by voice. As such, it was given a Taupoian (feminine) voice and was referred to by the name, Marki (It's a Jungle Out There). One aspect of its programming was the command to "Use discretion." This enabled the shuttle to escape the destruction of the Sunrise and wait further orders on a tropical island in the Southern Sea of Taupoi. When rediscovered years later, the shuttle was in a state of complete disrepair, but the computer was removed and placed into a Falcon-Class starship, disk shaped and about 50 meters in diameter (Red Sky in Mourning), of the new Taupoian fleet (Use Discretion). The Marcopo was used by the Taupoians until retired and sold to a buyer on Panjandrum many years later (The Tartian Egg). The Marcopo was eventually transferred to Sheila Cash and Juan del Rio (The Pirates of Panjandrum) and was renamed the Marco Pollo. It eventually took on a male persona and Hispanic accent. Tom Clancy "inherited" the Marco Pollo from his Uncle Juan del Rio. (A Many-Splendored Thing)
