KGT 10:  In some of the larger cities on Kronos, particularly the capital First City ({veng wa'Dich}), there are pockets of immigrants from these other planets who maintain their languages and customs but do so pretty much out of the hearing of the majority population.

A dispute on Ventax II with a Klingon craftsman over the construction of a house was settled by an outside arbitrator because the case involved an alien culture.
