So, Alice is on a trek, as in Star Trek {Hov leng} used several times by Okrand?  You could even call her a {lengwI'} "voyager"!  Again, SkyBox card 01 (S99) is relevant; Okrand uses the verb {leng} "roam, travel, rove" twice:

It waits... on the edge of the galaxy, beside a passage to unknown regions of the universe, space station Deep Space Nine is the gateway for the exploration, intrigue and enterprise that mark the continuation of the human adventure into space--the final frontier.  (CARD 01)
