Big Dumb Objects (BDO) are so called because they evoke a sense of wonder simply by existing. The objects themselves are numinous: no plot needed, no characterizations should bother to apply. The term, really, is a bit of a putdown; is it fair? The case can be made that BDOs are one of SF's truly unique inventions, and ought to be appreciated as such. So let's celebrate the Big Dumb Objects we know and love — and perhaps a few we've missed along the way.
