Qapla! Klingon for Success.

Qapla is the Klingon word meaning success! Its often used in conversation when bidding someone farewell. Some useful examples are from Star Trek III: Search for Spock and TNG's Sins of the Father and Aquiel episodes.

Sins of the father was Worfs story and a relaunch of the Klingon Mythos. The Klingon Dictionary is the Official Guide to Klingon words and phrases which explains how the grammar works for all you aspiring Klingons!

 In an interesting twist, STNG Klingon General Martok was elected to office last Novmber for New York's state elections.

Do you want to go targ hunting with Martok? Perhaps you think like a Klingon or speak the lingo?


Well then trekker your all set for a rach time! Qapla!

Worf looks mighty cool with that guitar.
So we have a Klingon in office? They are taking over from within...

I have a healthy respect for Klingons, but I wouldn't want to be one.

I texted this a few weeks back. I am a geek.

An excellent choice for Q. Well done not going for the obvious choice of "Q."

Nice Worf pic! He looks so natural with a guitar...which seems odd in itself.

That demo clip made me laugh. Klingons are just so darned serious. Do they ever tell jokes?
