Maybe you should volunteer your translation services.
They don't have to be experts. They got some of their other phrases out of a Klingon phrasebook. It's really just some rogue programmer pulling a fast one.

Everything in Star Trek is fiction. What's your point?

Star Trek has been around a long time and it's different things to different people. In a game called Star Trek, people want a certain degree of realism, authenticity, and continuity.

Some want "realistic" starship movement. Starships are fiction too you know.
Some want authentic costumes: stuff like female dresses from TOS, comm badges from DS9.
Some want realistic bridges where they can sit in a chair, watch the viewscreen, use the controls.
Some want death penalties as it's not "realistic" to trivialize death.
Some want missions that more strictly adhere to certain Rodenberry ideals and principles or Starfleet protocols.

For me, I just don't want to see people in Sol Station quoting scripture in Monty Python-eque Klingon. Is that too much to ask?
