"Being a listing of the colloquial terms utilized by the most glorious and reverend soldiers of the United Nations Space Command and its many holy branches, so that the Faithful may know and use the words of the righteous in their own Crusades against the xenos and the soulless. Praise be the UNSC. Praise be Earth." -From the New Pacifican Military Dictionary, 2557 Edition
