The Jenolan Caves near the Blue Mountains west of Sydney is about to become possibly the first tourist attraction in the world to launch tours in the fictional Star Trek language of Klingon.

Dave, they said possibly because you have to take them into account.

"Klingon scholars"?! Seriously?



Klingon?? I only know the bad words..etc.

Hab SoSlI' Quch! = Your mother has a smooth forehead

(Note: this is a powerful insult; don't say it to friends.)

Do NOT wear a red shirt on the tour. Just. Don't.

Bonmot took the words right out of my mouth.

A klingon porn industry can't be far behind.

*Waves @ Siouxie!!!*

Punkin, the chocolate's on the counter next to the Bat'leh that somebody left out again.

Don't speak with your mouth full of Gagh and Garbat.

Thanks, Hammie!!!

Spelunking is the Klingon word for caving.

This story makes me feel better about my Star Trek geekiness. I knew the Jenolan caves lent the name to the USS Jenolan the Sydney-class ship that crashed on a Dyson Sphere trapping Scotty in the transporter for 70 years. On the other hand, I have never learned Klingon.

My people.

But seriously, I have not been to a Star Trek Convention since January 12th 1992. I met my future wife on the way home from it.
I still want to learn Klingon and play Boggle like the guys from Big Bang Theory.

Big Bang Theory is the funniest show on TV right now.

Klingon is getting so corrupted nowadays with all this urban hip-hop patois, I just can't follow it anymore. You know what I'm sayin'?

bonmot we absolutely agree on something. I love The Big Bang Theory and my first thought was that Sheldon would love this. Kuthrapoli would probably like it also.

Any questions?

BBT is the reason I never participated in the Monday night 25 shindigs. Season three hits shelves mid august and the show moves to Thursday nights. Of course, 24 won't be back.

Make that 24 shindigs.

What's an extra shindig among friends?
