Nightmare, or dream, of anyone who works with (or uses) telecommunications, meaning that your connection is somehow being fed through satellite . Has been known to happen on several occasions. Usually used humorously, e.g. of a static-laden local telephone connection: "Gee, I think we're patched into NORAD..."

Pathetic, when you think of it, but back in modem days, we took what we could get.
