Warp Speed Wednesdays: "taH pagh, taHbe..."

On Sunday, Christopher Plummer won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Beginners, a movie I have heard nothing about despite it featuring Young Obi-wan Kenobi, aka Ewan McGregor. Obviously this movie's promotional tie-ins did not involve action figures or Halloween costumes.

Plummer's victory pleases me because Mr Plummer and I are both dual citizens. We are both Canadians, and we are both citizens of the Republic of Star Trek.

Plummer appeared as General Chang in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, as a Shakespeare quoting Klingon general.


The title for this post is the Klingon translation of "To be, or not to be" -- aren't you glad to know that?

  1. I AM glad to know that.

    And how exactly did you get your Klingon translation?
