These original Klingon titles of two {SeQpIr} plays are from KGT: {'antonI'
tlhI'yopatra' je} and {HenrI' vagh}.

> Day joH             Lady Di 

She was in the BBC television magazine "Radio Times" special Star Trek 30th
anniversary issue:

  DaH nuq ta'pu' Day joH
  What has Lady Di done now?

> janluq pIqarD       Jean-Luc Picard

{pIqarD HoD} was mentioned in SkyBox card S25:

  DaH che' ghawran. yejquv DevwI' moj ghawran 'e' wuqta' cho' 'oDwI'
   Dapu'bogh janluq pIqarD HoD.
  Gowron currently presides, named leader of the High Council by
   Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who was acting as Arbiter of Succession.

This list of actors playing Klingons appeared in "Star Trek: Communicator"
#104 (1995) special Klingon issue.  (STC is the magazine of Star Trek: The
Official Fan Club -- the one officially sponsored by Paramount.)

Although Marc Okrand was credited, oddly enough his name wasn't given in
tlhIngan Hol transcription on the poster.

We also have a new (or old?) one to add to the list from Okrand's Klingon
notes for the movie ST5, which have just been published by Lawrence in
HolQeD (v.8, no.4: Dec. 1999):

  jems tIy qIrq       James T. Kirk

In a line of dialogue we never heard, Captain Klaa says:

  jemS tIy qIrq. loDHom jIHDI' qIrq qun vIqImchoH.
  James T. Kirk. I've followed his history since I was a boy.

Ca'Non Master of the Klingons
