On one late DS9 episode we were introduced
to a second, abandoned, Cardassian space station, dubbed "Empok
Nor." Our own DS9 was known to Gul Jerk -- oops, Gul
Dukat as Terok Nor. One can then infer that the "-ok
Nor" suffix is some manner of naming system, effectively
"Station One," "Station Two," etc. Of
course, the mighty Cardassian Empire didn't stop at a measly
two stations, so we theorize there must be others floating
around, with their own contingent of Cardies and other species.
Nok-Nok Nor: Where poor Cardassian
comedians are shipped to die.
Tuvok Nor: A joint Vulcan-Cardassian
station, abandoned when the Empire joined the Dominion.
VentNok Nor Avenue: Where Cardassians
on leave go to play Monopoly, Tongo, and Dabo.
Sunblok Nor: Orbiting a dual sun system,
where the Cardies can take off those miserable uniforms and
get a respectable tan. Sister station to Jok Nor, where
young Cardassian males undergo physical training before entering
the Cardassian Military Academy.
Roadblok Nor: A mobile station, towed
around the quadrant to prevent the unwary from plowing into
planets undergoing terraforming or forced occupation.
Lok Nor: A legendary Cardassian prison
station for people doing real-time life sentences, isolated
on the farthest edge of the Empire.
Atomic Clok Nor: Actually a buoy rather
than a station, it keeps Official Cardassian Empire Time and
can be accessed through a brief toll-free subspace link to
make sure one's station isn't running slow.
Dok Nor: The first space station of
the Empire, which attempted to link up with a shuttle but
was irreparably damaged when the shuttle overshot the ring
and sheared off some solar panels.
Hok Nor: Run by a pair of enterprising
Ferengi jointly with Pakleds. Quickest place in the quadrant
to unload your merchandise for fast cash, less a respectable
commission, of course. Sister station to PickPok Nor,
where those who are unwilling to part with their goods may
be discreetly assisted.
Stok Nor: Also run by Ferengi, this
is the Imperial equities exchange. Construction futures are
Mok Nor: A bar on Deep Space Five,
opened in celebration of the Bajorans' freedom soon after
the Cardassians left Bajor. Serving as bar or wait staff can
be an alternative to a sentence on Nok-Nok Nor, for
those who still have some pull with the Empire.
Rok Nor: A floating entertainment station,
familiarly known as "Headbanger's Ball."
Wok Nor: The first Chinese restaurant
on Cardassia Prime. The live taspar egg drop soup is still
a big hit among Cardassian outposts. Opened by the same officer
who runs Ray Krok Nor, the immensely popular fast food
restaurant chain ubiquitous throughout the Empire.
NunChok Nor: A marital arts training
Pok Nor: A medical research center focusing
on trying to dosomething about the Cardies' terrible
Frok Nor: A semi-secret sweat shop,
where Cardassian military uniforms are made.
Grok Nor: Ya gotta love it.
