Are the only alerts that can be overridden are the ones that have the 3 command symbols at the bottom?

Why is the Janitor called the Janitor? I feel Tinkerer would be a more suitable name.

Yes on the overridden events, they have the 3 command symbols.
Some alerts are anomalies...

Why janitor? Someone has to clean up the ship. And Janitor is sort of a funny image IMO.

So an anomaly lacking the 3 command icons can't be overridden?

Correct.
It needs to be researched in the science lab to be removed from play.

PLB.

As I recall, I think it was mentioned that it is inspired by the Janitor by the main character in the Sierra computer game, Space Quest.
