"the output per second"

This itself has become an SF trope. I think the late SF author Keith Laumer started the trend with his "Bolo" supertanks with weaponry rated in "megatons per second" (1 megaton/second is around 428 terawatts), and this has crept into Star Trek and Star Wars fan specifications.
