I liked seeing some German, (and not just expletives) but its also nice to know that everything isn't English, that all other languages haven't died...
My sentiments exactly, although I did not entirely enjoy it, I studied Deutsch at Secondary school and it's nice to read something in another language in a Trek book that I can understand.

Now if you writing folk could put the U in color the World in my eyes would be a brighter place
Seconded... maybe they cut back to save on ink?

For colour, honour... etc.

I know the US nixes the U's, but what if the writer isn't from the US? Would the Us be edited out?
