Now I get it! (Klingon)

There are quite a few puns in the vocabulary of the Klingon language; ore of them I just think I figured out while I was making some flashcards.

I'm fairly sure that the word QeD "scientist" comes from Q.E.D., the abbreviation for quod erat demonstrandum "which was to be demonstrated", used e.g. in mathematical proofs.
