<p class="MsoNormal">Understandably, the writers of Klingon Monopoly interpreted &quot;ron&quot; in terms of dice. In terms of flight dynamics, where &quot;ron&quot; is used, it means something different. If an aircraft moved like a die, we wouldn't say it rolled, but that it
 tumbled.<o:p></o:p></p>
