(oops - these notes weren't meant to be published - they're for an upcoming podcast; d'oh!)

Preserve is rendered pol (keep) and comes from the Hebrew word (used more than 400 times) shamar, with the idea of a hedge, a fence to protect one. You might also use the Klingon word "shield" (yoD) or "forcefield" (botjan).

oops - that was - WILL BE - part of an upcoming podcast (actually a quote from an earlier one:) ; I didn't mean to publish it yet, but accidently must have hit the wrong button on blogger.
