It was a project eight years in the making — well, technically nine now. One LEGO fan has built his own Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey using about 25,000 blocks, based on a virtual blueprint he started all the way back in 2008.
Having already restored the original Starship Enterprise and put it back on display, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum needed to find another way to celebrate Star Trek's birthday today. So it commissioned extraterrestrial linguist Mark Okrand to record special audio tours of the museum in Klingon, to accommodate visitors from Qo'noS.
Here's how to make your resignation as a city councilman as memorable as possible (non-shameful division): write your whole resignation letter in Klingon. Trekkie and former city councilman David Waddell did exactly that, telling his mayor "chaq DaHjaj QaQ jaj paj", which apparently means 'perhaps today is a good day to resign'.
