Have to agree with my fellow warriors. "Raid" sounds perfect.
It immediately calls forth mental images of Klingon ships striking fast at unwary targets deep inside Federation space.

Hmm... "Pi Canis Raid, Group 1" and "Pi Canis Raid, Group 2"?

The term "group" could refer both to a series of strike targets as well as to a formation of KDF ships assigned to this task ...

I don't like "Raid". "Sortie" was ok...but "Assualt" or "Battle Group" is better.

"Pi Canis Incursion Forces"

"Pi Canis Spearhead"

"Pi Canis Strike Force"

"Pi Canis Interdiction Group or Force"

I think Piracy would be better, since it's basically what it is. :p

Then we could get titles like "Corsair" "Buccaneer" and "Pirate Queen / King" :3

Pfshh, piracy is for Orions and Nausicaans. Klingons and Gorn conduct honorable confiscation and redistribution.

(imo, another good thing about the term "raid" is that it sounds ambiguous enough to describe both a military or a criminal operation!)

lol then call them "Honourable Redistribution of Wealth" missions, instead of "Sorties" :3

Though that does sound a bit Communical or Robin-Hood-esque :3

Sure it's a long title/name, but hey.. look at some of the random missions for KDF:

"Patrol the H'bvu vsd sdfne assne gnehgt snsehg msdeht djseht nsheth ghsehght e dddgd system"

That is totally offensive, no Sovereign State considers its war time interdiction of logistics and supplies Piracy. Piracy is a term generally used by the victims of sound Operations of such supply interdiction.

The term Piracy or Pirate would never come out of the mouth of any self respecting Klingon Warrior with regards to military actions against an enemy and thier lines of logistics.


Its like people think Klingons are just mindless brutes, anarchist and criminals. Please don't confuse thier willingness for combat to equate to random violence and overall illicit behavior. If anything, our conquering of the Orions and the Nausicans is in away a social excercie in "cleansing" them of such primitive and barbaric views on honor, combat, etc, etc.

Klingons would stick thier nose up at the idea of piracy...right after they slit your throat for even allowing such a vile term in reference to the Empire to escape your breath.

To say a Klingon participatesin acts of priacy is like saying a Samauri takes part in acts of thuggery...either assertion is likly to get you cut and ceremoniously disembowled due to the insult to their honor and sensitivities.

In fact, as a Klingon player/enthuthiast...I'm a bit insulted by the idea...can you tell?

It means this...

An armed attack, especially one made from a place surrounded by enemy forces.


Klingons are emerging from thier sector into Pi Canis.... If you can find another word that means exactly the same thing.... lemmi know

I prefer incursion myself... Incursion Pagh has a nice ring to it, but even Pi Cannis Incursion Alpha sounds 'tougher' than sortie, or even just Alpha Incursion.

(Or ..maybe.. Alpha Incursion: Feddybears without toys, part 1 - but we may want to save this one for when we get a mission to blow up ESD or something )
