B

Battleplate - A naval term referring to an extremely large warship (>1 km in any dimension), with the exception that dreadnoughts may exceed 1 km but are usually not considered battleplates. 'Battleplate' does not imply any specific class; it is simply a catch-all.

Central Culture Authority - An agency of the Fleurien Republic responsible for the designation and preservation of cultural items of enduring interest.

Cerebrations on Diplomacy - Formal short title of a work by Nykwanna Francois and Renee Jean Senutila which acted as an extensive manual for Federation diplomats.

Curas - A term in Mantarien Esperanto, derived from kiu iras ('one who goes'). Refers to a Mantarien citizen who took Federal Service rather than serving in the Mantarien domestic squadron in order to fulfil their national service obligation.

D

Date formats - As the Couronnois Federation consists of a number of worlds with different calendars, it uses a standardised format consisting of years and seconds. A standard year is 31,557,600 seconds long. This is written as yyyyy.ss sss sss (for instance, 12345.00 000 001). An alternative format uses the five-digit year number followed by the percentage of the year that has elapsed, to one hundredth of a percent precision. This is written as yyyyy.pppp (for instance, 12345.0001). One hundredth of a percent of a year is 3,155.76 seconds - roughly 52 minutes, 36 seconds.

Standard dates are not usually used in speech (reference is made to planetary calendars) but do appear in computing contexts and are required for some formal statements.

Dernier Repos - A Federation world.

Dreadnought - A naval term referring to the highest-tonnage ships in regular production of any sort. May encompass a variety of actual class designators (e.g. heavy cruiser, battleship) but is usually used only for primarily direct-fire combatants (i.e., not carriers).

L

Les Rouges - See "Red Mantevins", under R. Notably, the use of this term imparts a class connotation on the user, signifying high social rank, as opposed to "Reds" or "Red Mantevins", which is considered neutral.

Levies - With the exception of those specifically exempted, Federation worlds are required to second a certain percentage of military assets and personnel to the Federation Defence Liaison; those units so seconded effectively constitute the Federation armed forces. A 'levy' is all units from an individual planet (e.g. the Fleurien levy); a 'levied' unit is one which is part of a levy.

Libereco Unua de Kastelo - Assumed name of a Mantarien Couronnois political dissident affiliated with the Red Mantevins. See "Cara, Marcus" (under C, above) for details.

LR - Operating abbreviation: Lane Route. Refers to trade lanes that exit Federation space but are of interest to Couronnois defence command. An affixed phonetic letter indicates a specific route - 'LR-Baker'. Further letters and numbers can indicate a specific system on that route - 'LR-Baker-A-1', for example.
