To live and breathe scifi in your life is a bit of a challenge. There are some people who get you 100%. There are some people who get you part of the time and those last bits of humanity look at you as if you “Men SoSlI’ targh Daghaj nga’chuq.” Of course, it does loses some of its poetic imagery in the translation but I love this guy! I am this guy and I applaud him for his efforts. All I can say is, “laH QujmeH tIn tlhIngan moQ suck ‘ej HeghDI’ SoH Suq sucking, jIDoy’be’ ‘oH suck ‘op vI’Iprup Hoch.” You get the idea even if you don’t understand.

Qapla’

It takes a special kind of politician to end his term by signing a resignation letter “chaq DaHjaj QaQ jaj paj. ” Thats “maybe today is a good day to resign.” In Klingon.

David Waddell, a city councilman for Indian Trail, N.C., decided to send his resignation letter to Mayor Michael Alvarez written in Klingon as an inside joke. “Folks dont know what to think of me half the time,” Waddell told The Charlotte Observer. “So I might as well have one last laugh.

The politician used the Klingon translator on Bing.com in case the mayor wasn’t fluent in the well-known “Star Trek” language. In fact, Waddell didn’t just write his resignation using standard Klingon, he chose the beautiful, pointy-looking written Klingon language of Kronos.
