Hi all! Happy Friday!

I’m looking to put together a dictionary of named Trek terms to use as a guideline for future cards. For example, while producing Dogs of War we had to consider “should this card say Dominion War or Dominion war?”
What named terms should we be watching out for? Which terms have we used inconsistently in the past?
This could be a can of worms, looking across gameplay text but mostly in card lore.

Looking forward to seeing your suggestions!

Klingon Baldric : "Klingon house", where most cards use "House".

Commodore Stone: "court martial" instead of "court-martial".

Tarvang: "lifeforms" instead of "life-forms"

(Not on a card, but the website calls Apella "Neuralian". Wouldn't "Neuralese" be better (apparently that was used in a script / novel)? )

Okay, seriously. The term "Flagship" should be given some relevance. There's currently 13 cards that use it across several affiliations - [Baj], [Dom], [Fed], [Kli], [NA], [Rom], [SF] [TE] - it could be fun. Oddly enough, no Enterprise (except the Mirror 22nd-century one.

Apparently, Creative needs to start checking to see if names of random jobbers are swear words in other languages now.

I named TOS Romulans after Brexiteers! Govas, Borix, and R’Moog...

TOS Klingons have a Leeds United theme...

That is a bit like swearing...

I wondered about those.

Edited to clarify: I didn't actually know they were Leeds United. I figured there was some sort of theme, but I had no idea what they could possibly be.

I remember there being a joke about a sporting reference when the set was coming out. I figured, being a non-sport-person, that I had no chance of finding the joke.
