>>> Chikktika vas Paus
>>Is there any special significance here? Drawing a blank.
>(shrug) It's the name of Tali's combat drone in Mass Effect 2.
> I'm told it's a Baldur's Gate reference.
So sayeth the Mass Effect Wiki:
Tali's combat drone is nicknamed Chikktika vas Paus, a subtle reference to Baldur's Gate II. Chikktika Fastpaws is the loyal raccoon familiar of Baervan Wildwanderer, a gnomish deity worshiped by Aerie. When Chikktika is summoned, Tali will occasionally cry, "Go for the optics, Chikktika! Go for the optics!", a reference to Baldur's Gate II's Minsc, who shouts, "Go for the eyes, Boo! Go for the eyes!" to Boo, his miniature giant space hamster.
