Nobody's said Commander yet, that's an easy one.

Data

Percent
Human
Klingon
Quadrant
Commander is #5. Data is #7 (including both the name Data, and actual data). Spock is #11 (I think half of these might be in TMP alone ). Human is #19. Klingon is #22.

Good use of proper nouns. There's a few more in the bunch I think.

The rest of these weren't in there, but percent was at least #82, and quadrant was #92.

"Radiation" "Sick" and "Log" .
None of these are there but log, and that was already guessed.

Nope.

life
station
mission
report
torpedo
Life was a tricky one. I figured that alive, life, etc were all part of the same word, but also that it was too common. Same with death and related words.

Station is #33, mission just missed at #55, report is #24, and torpedo surprisingly wasn't on the list.

Vulcan came in at #43, but the others weren't on there.

Power is at #6, but the rest didn't quite make it.

Can we offer phrases also?

"Some sort of" or "some kind of" - if memory serves, these were used a lot in Voyager to keep the anomaly of the week generic.
I said upthread that it didn't count phrases. Those would likely not beat out single words anyways. I did in the other thread mentioned in the first post count how many times Harry said to get a lock.

Sorry, Lucky got this one in shortly before you. But it was a good one.

Federation is #31. Planets was already guessed.

impulse
thruster

Impulse was #96 at least, but the others weren't on there.

I'll have the updated list in a moment.

EDIT: The list is updated. I noticed that there was a slight sorting error, so some of the places of answers got shifted around a little bit. Those near 50 may have been bumped or accepted. There's still 22 left to go!
