    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 - 'Captain,' 'Leader' or 'Prince,' literally - Supreme. (Credit goes to Gibraltar for this one.)
    Ah'met-sur - Syndicate clan leader. 'Lord.' Literally - 'Grand Supreme.'
    Ahm’suka - term of respect for an elder, literally - 'Wise head.'
    Met'mat - Father
    Met'Sando - Adoptive father, literally - 'Near-father'
    Met'Chan - Mother
    Jih'mat - brother or male cousin

    Mehk - son
    Moi - child
    J'moi - children
    H'lajmoi - abandoned children, orphans
