Question
Why are the Cyclones preconfigured with names, and what is the basis for the names?
 
Answer
Andromeda

One of the features of the Cyclone is that it can have a name attributed to it to identify it easily on a network. Names such as "manufacturing", or "development" can help identify different Cyclones on a local network. In order to pre-configure the Cyclones, we randomly select one of the constellation names and configure the Cyclone with it. The full listing of the constellation names is as follows:
