RE: ? about a word.

Oh, thank you so much.  I had forgotten how they had
said "Enterprise" in Klingon.  I must say I have
actually enjoyed the thought process that went into
trying to give me a Klingon name for our ship I have
copied the names suggested & will present them to our
club.  Our chief engineer, who brought our shuttle
craft (Schroedinger's Cat) aboard, may certainly be
interested in some of the names brought forth by you
folks.  Thank you for the assistance.  Any more
suggestions are still welcome.
