  • Star Trek: Discovery to tackle Trump-era political divide [Trump Supporters are Klingons]

    ew.com ^ | James Hibberd
    Exclusive: ‘The Klingons are going to help us look at certain sides of ourselves and our country’ Star Trek: Discovery will continue the venerated sci-fi tradition of using a fantastic setting to tackle real-world issues — only in a bigger way than any Trek series has done before. The upcoming CBS All Access drama tells the serialized story of a war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. The show is set a decade before 1966’s original series — which premiered 51 years ago today — during which the Federation and Klingons were in a Cold War...

    Kaga: Greetings, my Klingon Brothers and Sisters! I am Kaga, Klingon Chef and aspiring Klingon Brewmaster. Food is my passion, and many glorious battles have I fought in the pursuit of Klingon culinary advancement! I have grown dismayed, however, with the availability of true Klingon recipes on this world's. K'tesh, is, of course, THE authority on recreating Klingon cuisine with Earth ingredients, but I feel he sometimes either sacrifices authenticity for the sake of catering to "civilized" human palates, or goes to the other extreme and proposes recipes that resemble Klingon dishes but are inedible by human standards. In my...
  • Welsh government responds in Klingon to UFO airport query

    07/13/2015 7:58:39 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 16 replies
    Klingon was the chosen language for the Welsh government in its response to queries about UFO sightings at Cardiff Airport. While English and Welsh are the usual forms of communications in the Senedd, it opted for the native tongue of the enemies of Star Trek's Captain Kirk. Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar had asked for details of UFOs sightings and asked if research would be funded. A Welsh government spokesman responded with: "jang vIDa je due luq." The Welsh government statement continued: "'ach ghotvam'e' QI'yaH devolve qaS."

    Out on a sunny Berlin balcony, Tim Keeley and Daniel Krasa are firing words like bullets at each other. First German, then Hindi, Nepali, Polish, Croatian, Mandarin and Thai – they’ve barely spoken one language before the conversation seamlessly melds into another. Together, they pass through about 20 different languages or so in total. It can be difficult enough to learn one foreign tongue. Yet I’m here in Berlin for the Polyglot Gathering, a meeting of 350 or so people who speak multiple languages – some as diverse as Manx, Klingon and Saami, the language of reindeer herders in Scandinavia....
  • GOP Activist Says Michelle Obama Resembles Gorilla

    No, no, no, Republicans aren’t racist. What on Earth would make you think that? In another “isolated incident,” prominent South Carolina Republican Rusty DePass likened an escaped gorilla to First Lady Michelle Obama on his Facebook page. Commenting on a report posted to Facebook about a gorilla escape at a zoo in Columbia, South Carolina, DePass commented: “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors – probably harmless.” When DePass was busted by online bloggers, he expressed embarrassment and apologized, saying: “I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest.” But...

The passenger made the discovery during a flight from New York to New Delhi on September 28 on India's struggling flagship carrier. The passenger reported the incident to Air India, but said he did not hear anything back for two weeks, according to the Press Trust of India. "We are investigating the caterer regarding this incident," airline spokesman Prasad Rao told AFP in New Delhi. The spokesman said the airline maintained high standards, including hygiene conditions, adding that this was a "very...

However, it turns out those two aren’t the only ones with big dreams about a new TV series set in that sci-fi universe – Michael Dorn is also taking steps to reprise his signature Trek role on a spinoff, tentatively titled Star Trek: Captain Worf.

    HOUSTON, TX – America’s top secret UFO investigative agency has discovered powerful proof that extraterrestrials believe in God… an alien bible found in a wrecked spaceship! The 132-page, book-like document, printed in symbols representing a mathematical code, is made of an unknown metallic fiber that is impervious to fire or weather and cannot be cut or torn. Its contents are strikingly similar to many elements of the Christian Bible. “The book was found in the wreckage of a UFO discovered at the bottom of the Grand Canyon in the spring of 1994,” said Dr. Henry Leaumont, a California-based astronomer...

    ARLINGTON, Va.- In the United States, where many people can't speak English properly, a Washington acting troupe says it will perform Shakespeare in Klingon. During its annual benefit Sept. 25, the Washington Shakespeare Company in Arlington, Va., will perform selections from "Hamlet" and "Much Ado About Nothing" in both English and the language invented for Klingon characters of the Star Trek films, The Washington Post reported Sunday. The effort was inspired by a line spoken by English actor David Warner in "Star Trek VI," in which his Klingon character declares, "You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him...

    Dad spoke to son in Klingon   By VIRGINIA WHEELER Published: Today         A DAD spoke only KLINGON to his son for the first three years of his life to see if he could pick up the alien language. Linguist Dr d'Armond Speers came up with the idea after watching an episode of Star Trek. He spent days translating phrases into Klingon - hoping his toddler's first word would be "vav" rather than "dad". Dr Speers, of Minnesota, US, battled on with commands like "find the USS Enterprise", - but his wife only spoke English to...
  • New Star Trek-style 'cloaking device' will make objects invisible

    24dash.com ^ | 10/19/06 | Ian Morgan
    A Star Trek-style "cloaking device" has been built using technology developed to make objects invisible. The "cloak", based on a British design concept, measures less than five inches across and only responds to radar waves. But within five years there might be devices powerful enough to make whole vehicles "vanish" - including battlefield tanks. An invisibility cloak blueprint was produced in May by Professor Sir John Pendry, a physicist at Imperial College London. Just five months later, scientists working with him in the US have put the idea into practice. The concept involves bending visible light, or other forms of...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..
