Naff - a term that basically means not good, poor, bad taste etc

Anything like that.

Pronounced the same as 'laugh' but with an 'N'.

I have read somewhere that what is considered a cheap rip off in most western cultures is considered devout learning from a master in many asian cultures. Its said thats why asian cultures do not see anything wrong in copying or plagiarism. So, does the chinese comunist party have devout trekies? It certainly appears so.

Rive rong and prosper?

More likely a ripoff of the UN Logo, which is what the Federation logo is.

The UN Logo has been around since 1945.
