Usage examples of "parse".

Alt Mer spun the wheel that guided the rudders off the parse tubes and fed power down the radian draws to the crystals in steadily increasing increments.

You can try to parse that, but I guarantee you it falls under the letter of the treaty and the Darhel will well and truly cut your legs out from under you if you try to parse it any other way.

The pilothouse was smashed, the steering fouled, the light sheaths in shreds, the rigging flying everywhere, spars broken, and even a couple of the parse tubes jammed shut.

We used the power stored in the parse tubes to right her, turn her from the ice pillars, and start her back the way she had come.

We can replace the light sheaths and radian draws, repair the parse tubes, and readjust the diapson crystals to suit our needs.

Down on the deck, he raised all the sails, tightened the radian draws, and checked the hooding shields on the parse tubes, making sure that everything was in good working order and could be controlled from the pilot box.
