Danger Will Robinson!  Voragh was joking.  For one thing, we don't know that
the symbols even represent letters.  For all we know, it might be impossible
to abbreviate in Klingon!  One thing that I am sure of is that it is highly
unlikely that the Klingon symbols we see are an alphabet.  (The glyph series
are usually too short for their supposed meanings.  "Welcome Klingons?")
