Word: archaeology



The study of past societies through the examination of their material remains. A subject dealt with by dedicated ship's officers in Starfleet (TOS, "Who Mourns for Adonais?"; TNG, "The Bonding"), and one of Jean-Luc Picard's chief personal passions. We know sociology is referred to as {nughQeD}; does this term also subsume archaeology, or do Klingons consider it a separate discipline?
