A variant of a scale of one to dead used to judge situations where a minor mistake has occurred that could nevertheless cause the deaths of all involved. Commonly used in space stations, submarines, nuclear power stations and anywhere else that requires a rapid response to minor errors if everyone isn't going to die.
