Wanted to make a thread that listed all the Alien "slang" that is used in the game(or at least in the beta) and their English counterparts

1. "Jek": most likely equatable to "f**k"
2. "Shtako": most likely equatable to "s**t"
3. "Haigi": Possibly means "girl"(in game example: "Can you help a haigi out?")

Post anymore you know/find

My favourite is in Castithan.

"Jemila ksa zheguksu mera!": exactly equatable to "I can't find your clitoris!"

There's a collection of words and phrases on this wiki.
Castithan language:

Haigi actually translates closer to "*****".

there was earlier this week on innerspace on the space channel in canada and interview with the cast and they were speaking the various lanuages and explaining their meaning. no bad language as was on tv but still nice to hear spoken.

Yeah, I had put that together, not many other censored words have five letters. How did you find out what it means? I was just going on context clues.

It's weird that they come up with these amazing new languages and then do nothing but use them for your usual firefly/farscape swear word substitution gags. Even when in the game english profanity is common! (yet they censor you in chat)

full languages will be spoken in the Show. If you've seen any of the previews, there is a clip of one of the main Castithan characters speaking to a group of children in the full language.

she's basically offering the kids candy, but in Castithan. she says "I have way too much of these treats, would you help me eat them?" to a group of Castithan children.

it sounds very fancy.

A Defiance tv trailer has subtitles, Dr. Yewll says "haigi".

The show's ok, liking the game, but the slang ruins it for me. "Shtako"? "Jek"? Cheesy to me, and definately overused in the game. Plus shtako immediatly makes me think of "sh*t taco", and that's sad because I like like tacos (without the sh*t).
