I agree - and this is especially important since we'll never hear from the sakari again http://img.infos-du-net.com/forum/icones/message/icon7.gif

Why do you fight over alien names spelling?

They're alien.. so originally, they are not spelled with a latin alphabet..
The phonetic transcription of alien words (from other planets, or even from Earth chinese, russian, arabic, greek, etc...) to a latin-based language can't be so strict.

In real life, perhaps. However, things the correct spelling in TV shows is the spelling used by the writers.

It is whatever you want to say it, not even 100 years ago my home city was called Pittsburg. Now it is Pittsburgh

Again, the program makes the rules - their spelling is the official spelling. Who knows, that might evolve and become something else, but that all happens within the show's canon. It isn't how we want to say it.
