Strange... I thought I'd already said that... :-)

Anyway, the Bolian homeworld is Bolarus IX, but I wonder if it might also be known as Bolius? Bolarus would, obviously, be the name of the star. Just like Earth can be known as Earth, Sol III, Terra...

Yeah I knew about there being a Norway. But, Sol mentioned quite a few Japanese names. You would think there would be quite a few more then just Japanese. If the Federation encompasses so many different races, you would think humanity would be already covered and there would be quite a few more "international" names. USS Munich or USS China or USS Argentina.

There are others, but I didn't want to be any more pedantic then I had to.
