>"She was killed when his ship self-destructed"
Does the article men when HER ship self-destructed? Because didn't she die when her ship, the USS Yamato, was destroyed by a computer virus? I suppose you could say it was self-destruction, since the ship's antimatter energy source was compromised by the computer, under the influence of the virus. But usually "self-destruct" means deliberately at the will of the ship's crew or Captain. Possibly self-destruct by computer would be one way of putting it, but the computer was malfunctioning. The virus was the real cause.
"She was killed when her ship was destroyed by a computer virus" would seem better. I'm just watching the episode now. I could be wrong. I might come correct this article later but I'm not 100% positive right now.
