    Minor nitpick: 17 was the one resurrected by the Dragon Balls. 18 got puked out by Cell and then Krillin wished the bombs out of their bodies.

    Also, IIRC, the remote being a detonator was only in TFS. Canon has it as a Shut Down Remote both times.

    It was a shut-off remote, yeah.

    Well, there goes my theory.
    "So full of hate were our eyes
    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    I would tend to think that Bulma and her dad needing a good stretch of time with the blueprints to MAKE a shut off remote is actually a pretty decent feat resistance-wise though, considering Bulma's gone on to make things like fields that can contain even a fraction of the power Goku and Trunks output in a sparring match. Plus the myriad other tech-things the Briefs have done. At least I think it demonstrates that there's some decent security they had to get past.

    Anyway, to throw a name out there, I'll say Circuit Breaker from the old TF comics could probably do it.

    To be fair, they were working on a extremely short deadline what with Cell having revealed that he came back to the past in order to absorb the Androids and attain his Perfect form, and looking for blueprints in the workshop that they were already going to be investigating (and then blowing up) was probably exponentially faster than trying to figure out how to activate the emergency shutdown mechanism in technology created by a terrorist who was about as smart as them over a period of years, in a field that they didn't really do much work in (cybernetics, though they at least dabbled in pure Robotics).

    That being said, Bulma [EDIT: wasn't] able to jerry rig her shutdown switch to have a range of more than a few meters, and she's the lady who can create an approximately palm-sized scanner that can locate six items over a completely different planet.

    Yeah but Dr. Briefs reverse engineered FTL like a month after learning it was possible at all, and he didn't even have blueprints for that. That with enough time left over to invent ridiculous artificial gravity while he was at it.

    Yeah, but that's a month with access to the technology in question (in the form of a blown up Saiyajin space pod), which may have included artificial gravity as well (since every large spaceship seems to have it as standard even though most of the people on them can fly, possibly as a form of inertial dampener. In the Androids case, they only had a couple of days (while also trying to keep Goku safely away from them as he recovered) and didn't have access to any of the technology, unless someone went back to grab #19's disgarded head.

    And technically, Dr. Briefs probably knew about FTL being possible several months ago, unless Bulma didn't feel like mentioning to her parents about how she found out that one of her best friends was actually a space alien, and that another two menders of his discuss was on their way to kill them all.

    You know, now that I think about it, Nappa and Vegeta were really lucky that Capsule Corp didn't figure out a way to detect and blow up their ships from around Jupiter. Especially since they definitely had figured out Scouter technology thanks to Radditz.

    Access to a destroyed pod might make re-engineering the technology used to make it physically possible, but doing it that fast is insane unless it came with a how-to, which seems unlikely. Plus I mean, that time period also includes building a working ship with it, so it's probably more like a matter of days.
