TFA is interesting in maybe why some fake swear words in stories just don't sound right. For example, Frag as a swear never really works for me. Yet you see it in old Lobo comics and more recently in Battlestar Galactica.

I think it's weirdly similar to why Christian rock sounds fake.

Frell is another one. I want to like it, but it doesn't hit. Doesn't have hard consonants.

Frack may be the most satisfying Sci Fi swear. I can't think of a better one right now anyway.

The hard consonant is used to mentally "strike" at the problem. You don't cuddle something during an argument or attack.
