So is it "Om-icron" or "Ohm-icron"? I'm confused.

It's true what they say. Women are from Omicron Persei 7, men are from Omicron Persei 9.

Yup, came here to say this. :)

I pronounce it, "Get vaccinated, assholes!" I think that's phonetic.

Came to post Lrrr, leaving grumpy that someone beat me to it.

Lrrr is an ass.

The former. The "o" in omicron is itself an omicron - not an omega. So it's the "little O".

It's only ohm-icron if you're a member of the resistance.

As I understand it, modern Greek says OH-micron. Ancient Greek might have been closer to AW-micron, but it ain't Thales of Miletus spreading this variant.

The Filmation music was a nice touch.

It could be Asclepius though, just sayin'.

I trust Picard on this.  Those Frenchy Brits know.

You pronounce it however it is most commonly pronounced where you live.  If it's not commonly used where you live, you get to choose, because there are two obvious main contenders and both are widely accepted.

I go for "Oh-mih-kron" because standard English says that 'o' should be long due to the next vowel occurring after a single consonant and the word not being a known exception to that general rule.

Generally the Star Trek philosophy was that however it gets pronounced during its first mention, is how it will always gets pronounced going forward. Apparently Omicron was the exception to that.

Nah, "gould" was a deliberate shorthand for the full "goa'uld". They were the bad guys, fark their pronunciation. The Air Force don't have time for an extra syllable.

Is this some stupid question that's happening on a Twitter that has no bearing on anybody on the real world?

Why are they using the OHM (Ω ) symbol upside down?
