Notes on the English translations[edit]

I edited and removed "onboard" from the literal English translation of the Japanese as no reference to location (ship or otherwise) appears in the original Japanese, and therefore also put (on our ship) in quotes in the English idiomatic translation. Most correctly it would be deleted there as well, as it is evident only in context from knowing it is on a spaceship.

Literally word for word the sentence is as follows: 機関士:Engineer 何者か:Somebody によって、By 爆発物がBomb 仕掛しかけられた was set up ようです。it appears

Also "vison" (ビジョン), regarding "main screen turn on", does not have the strange/odd feeling that one would have in English reading the sentence "The vision is appearing on the main screen", because ビジョン (vision) is written in katakana and has the feeling of some kind of loan word, perhaps reflecting the advanced technology of the spaceship. It would be more accurate to reflect this grammatical nuance by putting "vision" in quotes.

Another example of why the English translation is WP:OR and shouldn't be in the article at all. Orpheus (talk) 16:27, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Add a reference to Harold Goldberg's 2011 book with the same title[edit]

Harold Goldberg published "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US" in 2011, by Three Rivers, part of Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House. ISBN 978-0-307-46355-5 and eISBN 978-0-307-46356-2. It's a quick read, and lots of fun. Neither Mr. Goldberg nor the book have a Wiki page so no disambiguation would be needed at this time. Djhill8262 (talk) 20:12, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

I google translated it and it was gone wrong[edit]
