Renamed to "charge" in subversion development version. Thank you for creating the issue.

Alternative names:
Ability (sounds confusing)
Ability energy (clashes with "energy")
Action points (sounds like turn based role-playing but might be OK)
Action energy (clashes with "energy")
Supply (using this would confuse all the starcraft players)
Cooldown (doesn't make too much sense).

Considering the alternatives, I prefer "power" and "charge".

Yes, mana does not fit at all in Bos Wars. (I hate it).

It's not the same as energy which already has a function in the game.

Medics and Nuclear Silos currently recharge "mana".

Mana ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_point ) is a fantasy term, while Bos Wars is a Sci-Fi game.

"Energy" fist the style of Bos Wars.

The following command seems to give most of the relevant positions in the code and strings:
grep [\"\ ]Mana[^a-Z\(\;] . -iR

The in-game strings should be replaced with "Energy" and "energy".
