Loquatia the Computer -Sassy,
opinionated computer entity on the science fiction comedy
HOMEBOYS IN OUTER SPACE/UPN/1996-7. Loquatia (Rhona L. Bennett)
was the computer-generated personality seen on the onboard
computer system of a starship Space Hoopty that roams the space
corridors of the 23rd century.
Loquatia loves to sing and
resents being confined to the computer console. She reluctantly
offers navigational advice and other bits of information to the
crew. But Loquatia does enjoys giving personal advice (whether
wanted or not).
The crew that she serves includes the ship's
pilot, Tyberius Walker (Flex) and Morris Clay (Darryl M. Bell)
the first mate. Loquatia likes Morris and teases him with her
cybernetic feminine wiles.
On the flip-flop, Loquatia barely
tolerates Ty's presence onboard their run-down spacecraft and
continually torments him with her tart-tongued, caustic remarks.
TRIVIA NOTE: Aptly named, Loquatia's name is derivative of the
Latin word "lo·qua·cious" meaning "Very talkative; garrulous;
gabby; chatty; full of trivial conversation." See also -
