(a phrase in Swahili) – “Hali Ganza, mzenzi”, which means “How are you, friend?”, or “Nina ku dhania mwanamke mzuri”, which means “I think you are beautiful lady”, or “Usijue upekee kamwe”, which means “You should never know loneliness”.
Speaking of trivia, those are the options that de Forest Research provided when the script requested a phrase in Swahili. Amusingly, it seems that the writer (either Johnson or Roddenberry) decided to use all three rather than pick one.
