Klingons have slang, too.  For example, you might say that you're going to look at some "naked stars" ({Hovmey Huv}?)!  <g>


For those too young to remember:

"If there are gods, they do not help, and justice belongs to the strong: but know that all things done before the naked stars are remembered." 
-- John Ford, _The Final Reflection_ (1984), p.23 et passim.
