You could include specific skills such as VM - Viral Matrix, HYT - High Yield Torpedoes, TB - Tractor Beam, TR - Tykens Rift, e.t.c.
The last one I have off the top of my head is CE - the Crystalline Entity Feet Action

Also, some others I've seen floating around these forums:
MSE = Mask Energy Signature
SNB = Sub-Nucleonic Beam
VM = Viral Matrix
FI = Full Impulse (when in reference to engines)
EPtS = Emergency Power to Shields

BTW, Lieutenant Commander is abbreviated - LCDR (How do I know? Because I am one in the Navy.) And Captain is CAPT, not CPT.

Thank you all for your input, the OP has now been updated. I would like to add more Fleet Actions, Abilities, Chat and Races to the Database, if you would like to help please feel free.
A few more fleet actions: this is just how i would abbreviate and is not neccessarily how the community at large does:
BtP- breaking the planet
KSF- klingon scout force
DS9 or possibly DS9FA to distinguish between this and the place itself- defend deep space nine
BD- Big Dig
BoP is over generalized and is little more then a class designator similar to "frigate". I prefer and have seen used rBoP and kBoP as more accurate acronyms since both klingon and romulan forces field a BoP named craft of very differing ability (rBoPs specifically being known to spit heavy plama balls of ugliness while kBoPs don't have anything specially scary about them), though in same class range (frigate/corvette/light cruiser).
Thats great thanks, esspecially the Animated Series, that one completely got passed me. I have added all of these.
The klingon scout force is fond in the same system as breaking the planet, it could be useful to state that as you have given the location for BtP. Also in your docks section I would question whether starbase 24 should be there as it is a fleet action and does not serve the same function as the other starbases and docks in the game
