The Word is a tabloid published by anonymous sources. It brands itself confidently as "the Ingenuity's first newspaper." It is not trusted as a source of accurate information, unlike The Acumen, but one can often find Word articles lying around the ship.

For unknown reasons, the identities of the writers and publishers of the Word remain anonymous. No one knows how their review process works, although it often seems like anything can get published. It is also unclear how one might write for the Word, since it is impossible to contact them.
