'From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step' - Diderot

Wednesday 15 September 2004


The Deutsche Welle website, the online presence of the German international news broadcaster, has added a site totally in Klingon, the language of one of the alien races in Star Trek, the long-running science fiction television series.

You have to hand it to the Germans - when they decide to do something, they do it in style! I don't want to hear anyone saying, ever again, that our Germanic cousins don't have a sense of humour. As someone who has recordings of just about every episode of Star Trek, from all the various series of the programme, truly I am not obsessive about it (no really!), but it is certainly true that I like it - a lot.
