RE: star trek card translation
I have the card, it's been around for some time.
It is part of a set called the Fajo Collection and is for the Star Trek
Customizable Card Game.
The card is used during a battle and allows all Klingon characters which
have honour (not all Klingon character cards have it) to add their
integrity (One of the 3 main attributes) to their strength attribute,
making them stronger and more likely to win the battle.
They have used the word "ethics" for the attribute integrity.
