It's a crewmember. I'm going to change that.

In any case, the word "bekk" appears to be a word invented for DIvI' Hol to represent the Klingon word "beq" - as "gagh" for "qagh", "pebot" for "pe'bot", "Kronos" for "Qo'noS", etc. A question that remains for me: Is "bekk" an acceptable (i.e., usable in an English sentence in Duolingo) translation of the Klingon word "beq"? Thank you jdmcowan and DavidTrimb3 - I appreciate the time you have taken to reply thoughtfully.

For that remaining question, I would say, "no," but one of my fellow contributors clearly thought, "yes". Thus I have removed it as a "best" translation, but left it as an "acceptable" translation.
