On the bright side I would have as much chance of understanding this as I do when they deliver the lines in the original english. And I speak that there english gooder than I speak klingon.

I'm speechless. Both Klingon and English speechless.


RIKER: "Even Klingons need love now and then."
WORF: "For what we would consider love, sir, I would need a Klingon woman."
RIKER: "What about plain old basic sex? You must have some need for that."
WORF: "Of course, but with the females available to me, sir, Earth females, I must restrain myself too much. They are quite fragile, sir."
RIKER: "Worf, if anyone else had said that, I'd suspect he was bragging."

Never was a Trekkie, but I appreciate the goofballishness.

I appreciate the goofballishness also, in that it keeps Trekkies away from us sane people.

Sane people, Annie? HERE?!?...

"This same scall, survy, cogging companion" "whoreson, beetle-headed, flap-eared knave". Sounds like a Klingon to me.
