Bio screenEdit

I dont suppose anyone can read/make out Korrd's bio on the screen from STV, or knows of a place that has the bio printed? --Alan del Beccio 14:50, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

The positive reading I can make is the from below the Career Summary header (1st screen): "FIELD COMMANDER/KLINGON IMPERIAL COMMAND/(unclear word) SECTOR" The foot reads: "CURRENT ASSIGNMENT/KLINGON REPRESENTATIVE TO/NIMBUS II(sic)" --Aurelius Kirk 15:48, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
Here's what I can make out:

Korrd bio1

First screen

Korrd bio2

Second screen

First page

CAREER SUMMARY
FIELD COMMANDER
KLINGON IMPERIAL COMMAND
K'REMICA? SECTOR
Ordered to command Klingon patrol forces in Shepard? sector, stardate 4308.3?. Was held responsible for the Faris? incident in which Orion merchant raiders overran Klingon strategic material(-el?) outposts.
CURRENT ASSIGNMENT:
KLINGON REPRESENTATIVE TO
NIMBUS III

Second page

CAREER SUMMARY
It is the analysis of Starfleet Intelligence that the charges against Koord are substantially unmerited. Despite this fact, Koord's political position within the Klingon High Command continues to be untenable.
CURRENT ASSIGNMENT:
KLINGON REPRESENTATIVE TO
NIMBUS III

I can't decipher the place names or the stardate, bur Orion is clearly legible... --Jörg 16:02, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I edited the above some with what I could make out and added much of the text from the second screen of his bio. -Alan del Beccio 16:28, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

From your screenshots, I'm 90% sure the second-to-last word of the first screen is "material" and not "military". I'm far less certain of the last word, but I think it could be "shipments" and not "outposts". The last word of the second screen is probably "untenable", suggesting "appears" or other possibilities for the remaining blank. --Aurelius Kirk 17:53, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I'll buy "material shipments"...makes more sense since they were Orion merchants, however "military outposts" fits nearly as well. --Alan del Beccio 17:55, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Sounds all great (I second "material shipments"), good example of teamwork! :-) Just one word missing, but that won't change the meaning; if only we could make out the names of the sectors and the incident.--Jörg 18:03, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
OK, I gave it the Dan Rather-memo treatment (overlaying the possible text in photoshop) and I'm pretty damn sure it's "material outposts" or "materiel outposts" (more proper for military supplies) and "continues to be untenable". FWIW, I used to be a typesetter, and have used this trick many times in the past. --Aurelius Kirk 18:20, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
"Shepard" seems to be what it looks like, and "Faris" fits very nicely in the place of "Fera" --Aurelius Kirk 18:30, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Nice job...guess my old eyes aren't so bad afterall. Any guesses on the sector in all caps? K'Renca? --Alan del Beccio 00:15, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

"K'REMICA" (a near-anagram for AMERICA?) fits better than anything else I've tried, and is my best guess. The "EM" is the weak link, but it sounds more like a Trek-word than other letter combinations that might fit. --Aurelius Kirk 01:08, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Thanks to the Blu-ray release of the movies, here comes the true text:
