Followers of Star Trek know that the Klingons were once enemies who eventually became staunch allies. There's probably a lesson in there somewhere.
But did you know that the show has sparked an entire Klingon language that continues to exist, grow, and even thrive today? There is even a Klingon Language Institute.
And in just eight days, the Dutch will debut a Klingon Opera in the Netherlands. They have gone so far as to create some unique musical instruments to tell their story.
I wish them success. Qapla'!
