Early telemetry indicated that there was a leak in one of the gas valves in the orientation system so the spacecraft was transferred to gyroscopic stabilization.
The control system initially compensated for the lost engine and the launch proceeded on 5 engines---until 25 seconds after liftoff, at approximately 1 km altitude, the rocket began to tip over to a horizontal position.
Due to a problem in the operation of one of the onboard systems (attitude control or retro-rockets) the landing probe separated prematurely (4 hours before encounter) and missed the planet by 1300 km.

Level 1 diagnostics on major systems can take several hours, and in many cases, the subject system must be taken off-line for all tests to be performed.
This yields a somewhat less reliable system analysis, but is a procedure that can be conducted in less than half the time of the more complex tests.

Known to be an important component of the brain's executive control system, the ACC is believed to help mediate between cold, hard, fact-based reasoning and emotional responses, such as love, fear or anticipation.
The researchers also tested their theory using another computer model that had been previously developed to support an existing theory of the ACC as a system focused on conflict resolution.

YoYoDyne Propulsion Systems is a Division of YoYoDyne Industries.
YoYoDyne Labs, which provided the basic patents for the YoYoDyne Plasma Drive and other principal components of today's modern interstellar vehicles, was conceived and built in prototype by Generals Xxaxx and GoreBag while on a prolonged leave of absence from their own planet.
YoYoDyne has as its underlying principle the metaphor of David and Goliath, that what Goliath the Giant really needed was a heat-seeking missile, the kind for which YoYodyne Propulsion is galactically famous.

 Solaris7 Communication Center - Draconis c3 lance
I do not know how the C3 slave issue would be resolved, as any mech could simply drop a ton of weapons/ammo/ armor or the combination of both to mount a C3 slave as a field modification and I feel this would be fairly simple to do.
But monting a C3 Master is a lot more complicated than a field system could handle and a redesing would be needed for the mech.
This would tend to have only a limited number of mech avaialbe that could field C3 masters and these would be on maybe 3 of 4 mech designs whlie C3 slaves, being easier to fit, could be from any mech in the houses inventory.

The "88" reference for the Institute is obvious, and I suppose the "3-8" in Yoyodyne's number might tangentially refer to 1938, the year of Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" broadcast and the Lectroid incursion into Grover's Mill, NJ.
Actually, many of the propulsion systems of all ships on Star Trek (at least ones seen in the show) are built by Yoyodyne systems.
One major thing that sticks out is Yoyodyne Propulsion Systems, which is listed in multiple places through the history of Star Trek.

The real problem, I believe is the way our legal system is set up, specifically in terms of civil suits.
What this country needs is to adopt the British system of "loser pays"; i.e., the loser of the civil case pays the costs of the winner.
This would go a long way towards eliminating the frivolous lawsuits we keep hearing about (remember the lady who got $2 million from McDonalds when she spilled coffee in her lap) and getting rid of the sleazy ambulance-chasers who advertise on "Jerry Springer".
