Part of Star Trek

About The Book

"Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam."

"It is a good day to die."

What is the proper response to this? What should I do?

Now, with Klingon for the Galactic Traveler you will know.

Organized into four easy-to-use sections, this book will guide your steps through the Klingon language and customs:


  • The regional dialects of the Empire

  • Common, everyday usage of the language

  • The slang phrases and curses that color the Klingon volcabulary

  • Most importantly, the proper verbal, physical, and cultural responses.


A misspoken word to a Klingon, who is quick to take offense and even quicker to take action, could have dire consequences. This book is the indispensable guide for the galactic traveler.
