The ultimate Trailer Battle8. May 2019
The Klingon language is widely known from the films and series of the Star Trek franchise. However, the language has long since grown beyond its borders and appears very frequently in other situations, such as movies, TV series, commercials, but also in many books and games. Everyone knows Sheldon’s famous allusions from The Big Bang Theory without a doubt, but Klingon has also been used in many foreign films and series – and more than you might think.
The lecture Klingon in the media by Lieven L. Litaer shows and explains the most interesting phenomena. The viewer is very surprised by the frequency of the quotations, which one never would have thought would occur in such series at all. At the same time, however, it also explains whether the translations used are correct at all, or whether it was just gibberish.
