*Possibly* b/c q is closer to k in sound, and, as I said in a follow up post, since it's typed in ALL CAPS, Q remains Q.

I wonder why the originators of this mapping didn't do this instead:

q - q
Q - x
tlh - k

..as it leaves "q" alone, and makes "tlhIngan" closer to "klingon".
Then only "x" and "f" for "ng" seem particularly odd given the
Okrandian system (i.e. ch - c, gh - g, S - s, etc, mappings read
pretty straightforwardly).
