The Bold are Favored by the Empire, #3 in Star Trek ATC (Artist Trading Card)

The Bold are Favored by the Empire (Latin)

#3 in Star Trek ATCs

"Audentes Fortuna Imperii". The Bold [are] favored [by] the Empire".
Motto of the ISS Avenger (NX-09) from the Mirror Universe
Card available for trade. Contact me if interested.

[Language note: I think the show writers wanted the motto to be "Fortune favors the Empire", since Columbia NX-02's motto is "Audentes Fortuna Luvat" (Fortune Favors the Bold). But you can't just substitute one word in Latin and assume it'll have the same meaning. Changing "Luvat" to "Imperii" changes the grammatical case. Luckily, the new motto has a similar meaning to what was originally meant.]
