{SaD} and {SanID} were very likely created to fit the several lines which
say "Range, X thou*sand* kellicams" in Star Trek III. Maybe he created two
versions both of which fit the mouth movement for "thousand", to see which
one sounded better or had the right length when the actor spoke it, but it
was left undecided when they didn't film those lines in Klingon.
