/c/TenFoward: Your home-away-from-home for all things Star Trek!

Re-route power to the shields, emit a tachyon pulse through the deflector, and post all the nonsense you want. Within reason of course.

~ 1. No bigotry. This is a Star Trek community. Hating someone off of their race, culture, creed, sexuality, or identity is not remotely acceptable. Mistakes can happen but do your best to respect others.

~ 2. Keep it civil. Disagreements will happen both on lore and preferences. That's okay! Just don't let it make you forget that the person you are talking to is also a person.

~ 3. Use spoiler tags. This applies to any episodes that have dropped within 3 months prior of your posting. After that it's free game.

~ 4. Keep it Trek related. This one is kind of a gimme but keep as on topic as possible.

~ 5. Keep posts to a limit. We all love Star Trek stuff but 3-4 posts in an hour is plenty enough.

~ 6. Try to not repost. Mistakes happen, we get it! But try to not repost anything from within the past 1-2 months.

~ 7. No General AI Art. Posts of simple AI art do not 'inspire jamaharon' and fuck over our artist friends.

Fun will now commence.

Clearly a fake, all the names are written correctly

[–] troyunrau@lemmy.ca 14 points 1 week ago (1 children)

The Starbucks logo suggests this was in one of their Klingon franchises

[–] samus12345@lemmy.world 6 points 1 week ago

And they wrote it in a weak HUMAN language??

[–] TotallyNotSpez@lemm.ee 11 points 1 week ago (2 children)

The joy of going to Starbucks with an Irish name like Caoimhe or Saoirse.

My name contains seven silent letters...

There’s this YouTube channel about aviation that I like. The guy’s name is Ruairidh MacVeigh. The last name is obvious, but his first name is apparently pronounced as ‘Rory’. I would not have gotten that spelling correct in a million years.

Edit: oh and another one that I do know to write and pronounce is Siobhan. That one does NOT sound like what you think it does. Definitely look it up if any readers are not familiar with Irish names.

[–] TotallyNotSpez@lemm.ee 4 points 1 week ago (1 children)

Irish names are fun. There's also a good amount of Irish people going for deed poll changing their name from the English spelling to the Irish one and vice versa. A friend of mine went from Noel to Nollaig.

[–] echodot@feddit.uk 1 points 1 week ago

I work with a lot of Irish people and I've just got used to the fact that "Smith" is spelled "Smyth" apparently the y is silent and the i is invisible.

[–] TotallyNotSpez@lemm.ee 1 points 1 week ago

Re: Edit Lol, a friend of mine has that name. It's not an easy one if you're not used to Irish names. ^^

[–] echodot@feddit.uk 3 points 1 week ago

I still don't understand why Starbucks write your name on drinks. Literally everyone else in the world just calls out the order and you pick it up. It's usually the next one unless you've ordered something ultra complicated anyway.

Combine that with the fact that they can't have small medium and large and have to call everything by weird names and I refuse to go in. Same way with Subway, don't want to have to decide what kind of tomato sauce filling I want in my sandwich, I just want an effing sandwich.

The Klingon version of the Starbucks mermaid is just awesome.

Yes! Would be a great sticker

[–] Tolookah@discuss.tchncs.de 13 points 1 week ago (3 children)

I can't believe this, it should have the wrong name, like Ralph, or Rorf (Worf, with an r). The rest stays.

[–] VindictiveJudge@lemmy.world 8 points 1 week ago (1 children)

Mr Woof was used on the show.

Ralph! Ralph, your iced coffee as cold as served revenge is ready! Ralph?

Eew union buster and horrible flavor

[–] FlyingSquid@lemmy.world 8 points 1 week ago (1 children)

Did Worf describe himself as being of the House of Rozhenko? I don't remember that. I assume it was after he repaired relations with his adoptive parents and brother

[–] Odelay42@lemmy.world 11 points 1 week ago (1 children)

He did it in an episode of Picard

[–] FlyingSquid@lemmy.world 2 points 1 week ago

Thanks. I totally don't remember that.

[–] vk6flab@lemmy.radio 6 points 1 week ago (3 children)

Whenever I'm confronted with the demand to provide my name, I pick John or Jen, depending on my whim, since the majority of humanity appears incapable of spelling my name, let alone pronouncing it.

Onno

That's my name, and no, I'm not related to Yoko and that's not how you pronounce it, also, it's not Oh-no.

Try: "On" followed by "No". Then do it without a break. See. That wasn't so hard.

So, forgive me for being more than slightly sceptical about the genuine nature of this coffee cup being actually adorned in this way by the person behind the counter at that coffee shop.

[–] TheGiantKorean@lemmy.world 7 points 1 week ago (1 children)

My first name is Kim, but I'm a dude, so they will write anything other than Kim, because obviously there is no way a guy could have that name.

[–] billiam0202@lemmy.world 5 points 1 week ago (1 children)

Your name is Kim?

Are you still an Ensign, or did you ever get promoted?

[–] TheGiantKorean@lemmy.world 7 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

Always an ensign 😔

My wife has a very common name so she puts the order in under Bowie, as in David Bowie.

Apparently one of our local Starbucks has an employee with that spelling as their first name but instead of bow being pronounced like in bow and arrow it is bow like in bow wow.

Hot damn this hard to explain in text.

[–] jaybone@lemmy.world 4 points 1 week ago

You mean like the bow of a boat.

[–] grue@lemmy.world 2 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

One employee with a head cold away from being called "unknown sample".

[–] jaybone@lemmy.world 5 points 1 week ago

Now do one for Daenerys.
