A new Star Trek book, How to Speak Klingon – Essential Phrases for the Intergalactic Traveler, will be released this spring.
Written by Ben Grossblatt with illustrations by Alex Fine, the twenty-four page board book features a built-in sound module with ten unique sounds.
“Avoid dishonor and intergalactic incident” by studying How to Speak Klingon, an audio phrasebook that will teach “crucial compliments” toasts, insults and more to those new to the guttural language.
In How to Speak Klingon, learn how to compliment a Klingon (“You bludgeon divinely!”) or how to insult him (“Your mother has a smooth forehead”). Phrases for how to deal with annoying customs officials (“Passport? My FIST is my passport!”) or how to buy tickets for the latest Klingon play (“Two for Romulan and Juliet”) are also provided.
Author Grossblatt has several degrees in linguistics, but more importantly, he “eats gagh with his bare hands.” Illustrator Fine, on the other hand, identifies more with the Vulcans than the Klingons and was nicknamed Spock as a child due to his bowl haircut and his pointy ears.
