(MO to Lieven Litaer, 10/24/2011):  ... [Maltz] said he did know a word {Qur} that might be related, though it was difficult to translate. The best he could come up with was structure or organization. He was quick to point out that this did not mean structure like a building is a structure, nor did it mean organization like an organization of people or even an organization of states. It means the way things fit together or the arrangement of the parts of something bigger. ... Though he looked a little pained when I suggested it, he agreed that one could say that Scotty understood the {Qur} of the Enterprise."
