# 1 Species Nicknames
03-09-2010, 07:47 AM
So last night while knocking heads with a Dominion battlegroup, I got to wondering about some things. Namely, throughout history, each side has had a nickname for the other in a major conflict. While some are simply ethnic slurs, others are more in line with a general term or slang with less malice. See The Huns (ww1) the Franks (Crusades), and so on.

Miles O'Brian referred to Cardasians as Cardies on several occasions, and then last night a team member called them Spoons, a less friendly, but seemingly appropriate epiphyte for them.

What kind of nicknames/short hand do you use for the various races in STO?

Keep it clean people

Actually Garak has heard the term 'spoonhead' before, and he reacted like it was a full on insult as opposed to O'Brien calling them Cardies.

Admiral Hazard is a pretty tolerant guy. He's got a Klingon Captain of Marines, an Orion XO, and a half-Cardassian tactical officer (who, incidentally, is the sibling of my half-Cardassian alt). Typically, other species are referred to by the proper names. Cardassians are Cardassians, Klingons are Klingons, etc.
