I'm assuming like "sick" - maybe someone who played Galaxies will have a better idea?

Judging by how I've heard Kashyyk pronounced, I'd say it probably sounds like "sheik".

Why not "skick", like stick with a kick?
(Or "skike" or "skeek" for that matter?)

Because you don't pronounce "scissors" like "skissors"

It's spelled Kashyyyk.

Hadn't put much thought into it but based on this logic I think I will start pronouncing it "sick", a silent c and y is an I , in addition it makes it like sickle and allows for things like a SICK Scyk sickle Squad devil

edit: spelling

I could be mistaken but I believe one of the developers pronounced it as "sick" in a interview recently.

He was just saying something like "it's a sick ship, with all the cool upgrade possibilities" laugh

How about like "Seek"? I think that sounds pretty cool.

In the Team Covenant Gen-Con interview with the developers, they pronounce it like "seek."

It is alien. Your puny human vocal cords would be torn if they pronounced the name correctly. Jokes.

In seriousness... When translating a word or name between languages, mispronounciation is to be expected and accepted. Even I don't bother pronouncing my own name correctly. (With the Eastern European rolled R).

Back to the ship... I like schick, like the shaver brand.

FFG Designer Alex Davy pronounces it "Seek" in the Gencon interview post-nationals.

...but everybody's going to pronounce it differently anyway.
