<div><br></div><div>Klingons might find &quot;Scotty&quot; difficult to pronounce but I rendered it as close I could. Perhaps they&#39;d pronounce it &lt;SIqatIy&gt; to avoid the initial consonant cluster.</div><div><br></div>
<div>I rendered &quot;down here&quot; as {bIngDaq naDev}, &quot;hereabouts in the area below.&quot; &quot;Below what&quot; is known to both parties, so {Duj} isn&#39;t needed. I considered word order: {naDev bIngDaq} would mean &quot;below this area&quot; as if under Kirk&#39;s feet there&#39;s a cave with no intelligent life in it.</div>
<div><br></div><div>I thought the topic marker for Maltz {matlh&#39;e&#39;} was helpful if not necessary. The question should focus on whether Maltz did the beaming, not whether the beaming was done.</div><div><br></div><div>
