  • Genius Bonus: The reference book The Klingon Dictionary contains the word "ghIlaSnoS", defined as "an ancient political movement". "ghIlaSnoS" is pronounced something like "ghi-lash-nosh", which is close to "glasnost" (and factor in that in Star Trek: The Original Series the Klingons were stand-ins for Soviet Russia).
