The felinoid that Kirk fought on Nimbus III had three breasts. Breast cancer represents an important health issue for Earth women.

    Given the slang meaning of ngech, I suspect that HuD would be understood as slang for this, though since Maltz has revealed a number of other anatomical terms, it’d be nice to get a non-slang word.

    I like HuD. Also, maybe chabDu’ from the KLI’s early days. If Okrand  does give us non-slang for breast, I hope he makes HuD and perhaps chabDu’ official slang as well.

      Interesting about chabDu’. Do you have a written source? Was it discussed on the mailing list?

    It was indeed discussed maybe twenty to twenty-five are ago in an issue of HolQed, I think. Right now I can’t give you a direct reference, but I ‘ll  be looking for it.
