a measure of gravitation or acceleration
I've more muscle than you, and I'm used to greater gee, being from earth.
Martian buildings, even public ones, rarely had levitators or even lifts. The lesser gee made stair-climbing less onerous than on Terra and Martians of both sexes insisted it wasn’t reasonable to avoid exercise. Stairs were good for the legs.
The Can Do—that’s this bucket—is about to rendezvous with the Go For Broke, which is a high-gee torchship.
There was a stenciled sign on the bulkhead behind the bunks: WARNING!!! Do Not Take More Than Three Gravities Without a Gee Suit.
Trying to lift a shuttle on a high gee curve with a full bladder was likely to be uncomfortable, if not fatal. He sighed as he located the fresher and sprinted for it.
He sat back, bouncing in his straps in the null gee, then wiped his forehead and leaned forward to reestablish a minimal gee in the courier for as long as the energy lasted.
The new ships were lean, mean, fast: multiple missile racks clipped to high-gee blip-fusion motors, pilots suspended in acceleration gel like flies in amber, hooked by every orifice into the big battle virtualizers.
He explored the various work areas, practicing maneuvering in zero-gee.
