Great. So I guess that's another fine example of how much producers
(not only movie) care for their customers(in klingon: pagh).
How are chances that it becomes a language? Not that I would want it to,
but I'm simply curious.

How is the integration of that part of Star Trek then? Are there any
"work-arounds" to allow it to exist in the main-stream, or has it to be
considered as "alternate"?

You know, it's situations like that that give Science Fiction a bad
taste. It looks too much like junk by actions like that.

Yes, I remember that line. But this was a serious question - was this
episode main-stream or not?
