Glossary of Orion Words

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Since the USS Bluefin patrols the borderland near Klingon and Orion space, I thought I'd provide a list of Orion terms I have used/may use in future stories. Feel free to use or add any for stories set in the United Trek universe.

A brief glossary of Orion terms -

Ah'met-sur - Syndicate clan leader. 'Lord.' Literally - 'Grand Supreme.'
Ahm’suka - term of respect for an elder, literally - 'Wise head.'
Met'mat - Father
