Re: Guess the 50 most common words in all of Trek

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.

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.

None of these are there but log, and that was already guessed.

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.

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.

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!

Alert was close, but didn't quite make the top 100. Evasive and Maneuvers were surprisingly far down, and shields is #34.
Huh, out of all my picks, I would have thought that Alert would have been in the top 50, nevermind 100 (Red, Yellow, occasional blue; medical alert, etc), and certainly thought it was my best bet, rather than shields. Funny that.

Compensate

(Definitely top 100 for ST Voyager. ST overall, maybe not. )
