  1. I actually bought Hamlet in the original (Klingon) version… and gave it to my then girlfriend.

    She loved it.

    Fun fact: when Marc Okrand was creating the language, he chose to give it only active verbs, no passive verbs, as a reflection of the Klingon psychology. Then, when Star Trek VI rolled around, they decided to have a Klingon quote Hamlet’s famous soliloquy — and found out that, by design, Klingon had no words for “to be.” They had to call up Okrand and have him make up one.
