Someone did a GoogleFight on this:
In b sharp's context, I think I would go with "gods from machines",
which would be _dei ex machinis_ or _di ex machinis_. If you like
"gods from the machine", parallel to "brothers in law", that would be
_di ex machina_
This could raise the question of whether Wolfe has one machine or many.
