Uniform Patch - The crew wear a patch on their left shoulder of the Enterprise logo/crew patch. Itís a styilized version of the ship as seen from above over a starfield with the word 'Enterprise' on the side.
Universal translator - Highly advanced computer program onboard Earth and Federation starships; also integrated into communicators or combadges, to translate unknown alien languages into English, including those that have never previously been encountered. The universal translator often doesn't work perfectly, requiring manual assistance by an experienced linguist. (Broken Bow) New languages typically take several seconds to be translated. (Unexpected) The effects of the Enterprise crew's translators are invisible to Riaan. Archer's translator is included in his communicator. While skulking with Riaan, it breaks down, and her words suddenly come through unaltered. To conceal his distress, he kisses her while fiddling with the controls (she does not object). (Civilization) SEE: linguistic database, translation matrix, phonetic processor, communicator.
