Strictly speaking, a Duj is just a vessel, not necessarily a spaceship. logh Duj would specifically be a spaceship.

Good point.

We've mostly standardised on "ship" as the primary translation for Duj on this course, but there are still some older translations that use "spaceship" or "starship", even though those are (as you note) too specific.

I'll change the English sentence.
