Welcome.

You will find sections here dedicated to Klingon culture, from food to religion. From science to philosophy. Look around, you will find much to read and comment on. Feel free to chime in on the older threads too.

I too have am interest in Klingon religion. My club of the olden days was designed around a Klingon religious fraternal order of warrior monks. For that I wrote many articles.

Seeing that you are from Italy reminds me of something funny. At one point we found a complete copy of our original website translated into Italian by someone we did not know or authorize. We always wondered if there was some secret copy of our club operating in Italy.

Hi, my name is Roberto, I'm writing from Italy. Kol'Vat is my screenplay klingon name, from the House of Biroq

Well, I'm a long term fan of Star trek and I love to study alien cultures as thought in the series. I'm fascinated by Klingons even if I think that there are currently so many versions of klingons in the screen (i.e. in Discovery we may encounter another extreme version). For me Klingons reflect the spirit of the warriors, the Honor, the protection of family and they seems for me as typical Northern principles. They recall me the Vikings and their style of life! (i'm also very interested in Norse mythology!)
 
I live in Bologna, Italy with my family (2 little doughters). My hobbies is to write novels (in general sci fi novels) or sci-fi articles. I've written some articles for the star trek italian fan club. I wish to Honor klingons by working on some Klingon cultural project. In particular I wish to study Klingon religion and publish some articles for fan.

I love the klingon war principle: "Choose well your enemies (The wind does not respect a full" told by Kahless (The Klingon art of war). The main concept is that with no enemy, a warrior is only half alive. The foe is the warrior's mirror, and the warrior finds in hs opponent the true image of himself. Amazing, don't you think?

qavan!
Roberto / Kol'Vat

I would think the biggest factor here will be what kind of ceremony will be used apart from any potential Klingon elements. If it is something that is set well in advance (as with most religious services) there is probably no effective way to incorporate anything Klingon. Even if it is a less formal or less organized ceremony, you do want to make sure whatever you add will not disrupt the flow of the ceremony. Discussing any such plans with the officiant will be important.

Hello,

The forums requested that I introduce myself.

I have always been a fan of Star Trek as I grew up watching TOS with my dad.

I'm a Cajun attorney living in Texas.

I am now a father of two girls and one of them had wanted to learn a "secret" language so we could speak only to each other.  So I started learning Klingon.  Unfortunately, their interest waned and now they want to learn Japanese (We'll see how long that lasts.)  However, I have put some effort into learning the language, and though I am still building a vocabulary base and am not yet near fluent I wanted to read some Klingon and googled short stories in Klingon and found the forum.  

That is why I am here.

    Believe me, I would really love to see the Feline Empires and Gorn RPG books.  Of course Federation would be their #1 priority, it sounds like the Orions and Tholians are next in line after that.

    They are very small team of about 6-9 and they are maintaining at least that many product lines (SFC, F&E, FC, ACTA, SFBF, all three flavours of PD, etc) including customer service,  printing, shipping, alpha testing, quality assurance, probably most of the art, writing, etc.   I suspect a bunch of the art and miniature sculpting too, though they probably outsource some art and sculpting as well.     Honestly, with as relatively obscure and niche their products are, I'm rather surprised they've still managed to stay in business consistently since the 70s.   Seems to be pretty much a labour of love and they will publish what they know they can sell do, what will sell, when they can do it.   

    Especially as their core of their business has always been the tactical and strategic simulation games, as their first product was SFB after all, and that is the main driving force for developing the detail in their universe.   The RPGs are a more recent thing for them that they could do with all the lore they generated to support the tactical and strategic games.  So I understand why their RPG products wouldn't be their top priority.

    Be Welcome to these forums.   We try to be as agreeable and friendly as Klingons can be, as we must to be worthy of the name "Klingon Diplomatic Corps".   We have a whole section  costuming discussions and ideas over at the Costumer's Guild section and we are quite possibly the best place on the internet to discuss Klingon culture in a broad minded, intellectual manner, while staying fun and full of Klingon fannish flavour.

    As far as I know, at last count there were less than 30 people actually fluent in Klingon.   We don't expect anyone to be fluent, quite the opposite, we expect people do their best to communicate with everyone, which means if you are going to use a Klingon language, you are expected to explain what you said so non-speakers can understand, except as otherwise indicated in the Klingon-language only forum and the Klingon writing and fonts thread, which exist specifically for language immersion and technical reasons.

Klythe I was saying that I do not wish to become enemies with any-one on here, I apologize for not being clear on that Embarrassed from what you said about your house it sounds like they use the wolf in their house symbol and see the wolf as a symbol of strength and have wolf type creatures as "pets" that would be fine as allies, I am specificly not fond of the creatures that are men/ women one minute and wolf type creatures the next or vampire type creatures. also am not friendly towards changelings ("founders" race such as Odo from ds9 in particular) although the house of kamok is not friendly with any non-Klingons will tolerate federation types (for the most part) so yeah from what you have told me our houses I think could be allies.

Hello!
My name is KC. I joined up primarily because I'll be looking for guidance in a new cosplay that I'm working on. However, I'm also very interested in the Klingon culture, and have been working to learn the language a bit, although I'm definitely not fluent. I've been a fan pretty much all my life and look forward to learning about the fandom from a new perspective. Thanks in advance for being an awesome group of people!

KC
