    Paramount Michael Dorn as the Klingon, Worf. Kahless the Unforgettable would be pleased. Teachers in Brooklyn, New York, are educating their students using Klingon, the fictional language created for “Star Trek,” according to NBC News New York. In a two-minute-long segment on May 14, 2022, reporter Gilma Avalos explained that the teachers at Saint Mark Catholic Academy in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, are teaching students Klingon in the hope that, “Change your language and you change your way of thinking.” The segment is punctuated by footage of Klingons from “Star Trek: Discovery.”“Unless you’re a real ‘Star Trek’ fan, you’re not well versed in Klingon,” Saint Mark Catholic Academy principal Mark Wilson told Avalos. Learning the fictional foreign language, the reporter explained in a voiceover, is helping teachers better understand how real students learn English as a second language. The school, she notes, has experienced an influx of Eastern European students, children who generally do not speak English at home.

    Paramount Two Uhuras and a Scotty In the movie “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the Enterprise’s mission was to hunt down and kill the traitor they knew as John Harrison (played by Benedict Cumberbatch). The crew, led by Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), traced him to the planet Qo’noS — which is the Klingon homeworld. Kirk, Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Uhura (Zoe Saldana) took a smaller ship (which the crew captured from Harry Mudd) to Qo’noS to capture Harrison. When they landed the spacecraft, Uhura asked to speak to the Klingons alone. Kirk hesitated.Uhura Speaking Klingon Play Nyota Uhura (Zoe Saldana) on a negotiations.

    Paramount Michael Dorn as Worf After the announcement by Paramount and multiple official social media accounts associated with the “Star Trek” franchise that the original cast of “The Next Generation” would return for Season 3 of “Picard,” fans were nearly moved to tears. The fan reaction was similar to what happened in Las Vegas in 2018 when Patrick Stewart shared the news with folks at “Star Trek Las Vegas.” Season 3 Announcement Play Star Trek: Picard | Season 3 Cast Announce | Paramount+Paramount+ Try It Free:bit.ly/3r1CHcD Follow Star Trek on Paramount+ for the latest news: Facebook: facebook.com/StarTrekOnPPlus Twitter: twitter.com/StarTrekOnPPlus Instagram: instagram.com/startrekonp… Follow Paramount+ for the latest news: Facebook: facebook.com/ParamountPlus Twitter: twitter.com/paramountplus Instagram: instagram.com/paramountplus2022-04-05T17:37:59Z   Some fans said they were “floored;” some said they would “faint from this news,” while others hoped that Picard’s new crew would still be a part of things.

    Paramount John Colicos, William Campbell, and Michael Ansara as Kor, Koloth, and Kang on 'Deep Space Nine.' Today is a good day to remember one of the greatest Klingons in “Star Trek” history, or at least the actor who played him. The late Michael Ansara portrayed the formidable Klingon, Kang, in the “Star Trek: The Orginal Series” episode, “Day of the Dove,” and reprised the role decades later in the “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” episode, “Blood Oath,” and in the “Star Trek: Voyager” episode, “Flashback.” He also guest-starred as Jeyal, a Tavnian who was married to Lwaxana Troi (Majel Barrett), in the “Deep Space Nine” episode, “The Muse.” Ansara, who died in 2013, would have turned 100 years old on April 15.In “Day of the Dove,” Kang, his wife, Mara (Susan Howard), and his crew wind up aboard the Enterprise. Tensions and distrust are already in the air between the Klingons and Kirk and his crew when an alien energy being that feeds on anger and violence further manipulates them all into fighting. Only by behaving like...
    ABC Director Marvin J. Chomsky preparing a scene. Marvin J. Chomsky, the prolific and Emmy Award-winning film and television director whose credits include three episodes of “Star Trek: The Original Series,” died on Monday, March 28, at the age of 92, it’s been reported by Deadline and other reputable entertainment news sources. Chomsky’s son, producer Peter Chomsky, confirmed the news, stating that his father passed away in his sleep at a hospice facility in Santa Monica, California. Chomsky’s Three Treks  Chomsky earned his place in “Star Trek” history for helming a trio of third-season episodes: “And the Children Shall Lead,” “Day of the Dove,” and “All Our Yesterdays.” In “And the Children Shall Lead,” the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise encountered a group of young children seemingly unaware that their parents had died. Later, on the ship itself, they dealt not only with the kids and their unique powers, but also their so-called “friendly angel,” an evil being known as Gorgan. The famous lawyer Melvin Belli, whose clients included Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassin, Jack Ruby, and Mick Jagger,...
    Paramount Deanna Troi, Mr. Worf, and Miles O’Brien For those fans who lived through the “in-between” eras of “Star Trek,” what is happening now is somewhat incomprehensible. Thanks to Paramount+, fans have new episodes of one style of Trek or another essentially once a week. Before this time, there were two dark eras of “Star Trek.”  One was marked by the end of “The Animated Series” in 1974. Thanks to syndication, Trek was more popular than ever. Due to this new strength, Trek got a new lease on life, and Gene Roddenberry’s creation was back, albeit on Saturday mornings. It would be until December 7, 1979, when Trek fans would finally get to see their heroes in action again.  After the modest financial success of “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” there would be a new Trek film with William Shatner in theaters every 2-3 years. And in 1987, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” began a streak of Trek on television that lasted nearly 20 years. When “Star Trek: Enterprise” was canceled in 2005, many thought it was gone...
    Paramount Where are the Klingons on ‘Star Trek: Discovery?’ As of Thursday, December 30, 2021, “Star Trek: Discovery” is officially on a mid-season hiatus and will return to the airwaves of Paramount+ on February 10. Since the show is not airing new episodes, it is an excellent time to address a question that keeps popping up in Trek fan circles: Where are the Klingons? In the most recent episode of the show, “…But to Connect,” the remnants of the Federation called together representatives of many of the star systems with which they are in contact. The president of the Federation, Laira Rillak (Chelah Horsdal), explained how they thought the menacing Dark Matter Anomaly (DMA) should be handled. Rillak shared some options to either destroy or contact the aliens who operated the DMA. They decided these aliens should be called the 10-C. In a speech that was not unlike what Lord Elrond said to elves, dwarves, and men in “The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring,” Rillak noted, “our views don’t always align, but the safety of our galaxy is...
    CBS Mr. Worf (Michael Dorn) Thanks to Ronald D. Moore, fans got to see what happened on a Klingon ship and in Klingon society. Many fans cite the “Klingon” episodes as their favorite in the franchise. Some say that the Klingon stories told on “Deep Space Nine” were as good as — or better — than the ones on “The Next Generation.” Moore, known by some as the “Klingon Guy” during his time on Trek, had to actually fight with creator Gene Roddenberry to get some of these episodes made. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Moore shared what happened behind the scenes. “He didn’t really see Worf as a primary character,” Moore said of Roddenberry in the interview. “[The Next Generation] was about Picard. He was the Captain. This was the first time that Next Gen — that ‘Star Trek,’ really — had ever done a big war story like this. And this was going to be the series’ 100th episode on top of it. So, we had to fight somewhat to get the episode going.” Moore helped make Worf one...
    Paramount / Disney Captain James T. Kirk and Draxx the Destroyer As Heavy has noted and as written about multiple times, William Shatner is truly a force. Despite his age (he’s 90 years old now), he always seems to have a new project making headlines.  He announced that he’d partnered with an artificial intelligence firm to create a living hologram in April. Then, his latest film, “Senior Moment,” came out to mostly positive audience reviews. The movie also starred Christopher Lloyd, who Shatner fought against on the Genesis planet in “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.” After that, Shatner faced Mike Tyson in the boxing ring (and in an arm-wrestling match) in a series of promotions for Coppergel. But “Bill” found himself embroiled in hot water as his new show, called “I Don’t Understand,” was picked up by the Russian-owned network, RT. “I Don’t Understand” Play VideoVideo related to shatner up for ‘guardians 3,’ while a guardian wants to be a klingon2021-07-20T20:41:48-04:00 Somehow, a t-shirt designer thought Mr. Shatner was dead and started making t-shirts to remember him by.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/CNN) — A special Pentagon task force has released its long awaited report on a series of mysterious sightings of unidentified flying objects by Navy pilots and others. The report’s conclusion — well, it’s inconclusive. Of the 144 reports covered by the study, officials were able to explain only one of them. READ MORE: Family of VTA Employee Slain in Mass Shooting Speaks Out “Of the 143 — What are they?” Dr. Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer from the San Franciso-based SETI Institute, told KPIX 5. “They don’t know — it can be anything. They did not rule out anything in any category and that means they didn’t rule out what they call atmospheric clutter. Things in our airspace. They didn’t rule out Chinese or Russian vehicles. They didn’t rule out alien vehicles.” Investigators looked into what the government terms “unexplained aerial phenomena” between 2004 and 2021. The report is almost certain to disappoint UFO-ologists who had hoped it might offer definitive proof that the US government has made contact with extraterrestrial life — what is known...
    YouTube Vaughn Armstrong as Korath in "Star Trek: Voyager" Vaughn Armstrong not only holds the record for the most roles played in the “Star Trek” universe, but he also holds the record for the most different kinds of aliens played. In his three-decade-long Trek career, he’s been a Klingon, a Cardassian, a Romulan, an ex-Borg, a Vidiian, an Alpha-Hirogen, a Kreetassan, and a human. Because of his breadth of experience with “Star Trek” aliens, Armstrong is somewhat of an expert on the Trek makeup department. He’s spent countless hours being transformed into the creatures, which makes him the perfect person to weigh in on which Trek aliens were the best and worst to create.The Best and The Worst Play VOY 7×09 'Flesh and Blood' Trailer (both parts)Star Trek Voyager Season 7 Episode 9 'Flesh and Blood' Trailer (for both parts of the episode)2010-11-29T21:24:55Z Armstrong said that the easiest makeup job out of all the aliens he transformed into was the Romulans.

    YouTube Worf, the first Klingon member of Starfleet, made his debut in the first episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Though he was only supposed to be a minor character, according to “The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years,” he became one of the most popular characters on the show. Worf went on to be a major part of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.” With his appearances in both shows and the “Star Trek” movies, Worf was in more “Star Trek” than any other single character, Memory Alpha reported. However, the show’s creator, Gene Roddenberry, never liked the idea of having a Klingon on the bridge of the Enterprise. If the decision had been solely his, Worf might not have made it on the show, let alone the bridge.Roddenberry Didn’t Want Klingons on TNG"Cowards Take Hostages. Klingons Do Not." Lt.

    YouTube Klingons from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" The Klingons have undergone several, distinct changes since the species was introduced in “Star Trek: The Original Series.” StarTrek.com once called the changes to the Klingons’ appearance, “the single most popular topic of conversation among ‘Star Trek’ fans.” Though the main reason behind these changes was advancements in makeup and prosthetic production and application, the writers behind the franchise have gone to great lengths to explain the appearance changes through additions to the canon. Each Klingon face was designed for specific behind-the-scenes and in-story reasons, though some of those in-story reasons weren’t explained until years later. Here are the stories behind each of the Klingon faces.‘The Original Series’ KlingonsVideoVideo related to all the faces of the klingons explained2021-05-26T11:29:36-04:00 When the Klingons were first introduced in the episode “Errand of Mercy,” writer Gene L.

    YouTube Klingon from "Star Trek: The Original Series" Klingons are one of the most popular species in the “Star Trek” universe. They appear in more episodes of “Star Trek” than any other alien lifeform. So far, the only show in the franchise that does not include the Klingons is “Star Trek: Picard.” The species was first introduced in season one of “Star Trek: The Original Series,” during the episode “Errand of Mercy.” According to “Inside Star Trek: The Real Story,” the Klingons were created by Gene L. Coon, one of the most influential “Star Trek” writers. Coon was responsible for many of the ideas that formed the basis of the “Star Trek” universe, including the Federation and the Prime Directive. He developed the personality and culture of the Klingons for the first season episode. Coon also gave the species its interesting and unique name, though this wasn’t something he came up with all on his own. If he hadn’t overheard a random conversation, the Klingons might have been given a completely different name.The Klingons Are Named After a...
    YouTube Ensign Robin Lefler in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" Each episode of “Star Trek” provides multiple opportunities for interesting guest appearances. Many prominent actors have done at least one guest appearance in the “Star Trek” universe. Some, like Trek veterans Jeffrey Combs and Vaughn Armstrong, appeared in several episodes, as multiple different characters. Several major Hollywood stars appeared in some iteration of “Star Trek” long before they were famous. Here are a few of the biggest names to appear in the Trek-verse.Kirsten DunstTNG Young Kirsten Dunst (Dark Page)Kirsten Dunst pre-Spiderman.2012-02-19T08:31:49Z Kirsten Dunst started her acting career quite young.

    Martin McNeil/Getty Images JG Hertzler attends a photocall at Destination Star Trek London at ExCel on October 19, 2012 in London, England Earlier this week, Heavy caught up with “Star Trek” actor J.G. Hertzler in an exclusive interview. “Star Trek” fans probably know Hertzler as General Martok from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.” However, that wasn’t his only role in the Trek-verse. Hertzler also played a Vulcan Captain in “Deep Space Nine,” a Hirogen hunter in “Star Trek: Voyager,” and two different Klingons in “Star Trek: Enterprise.” Heavy chatted with Hertzler about what he’s been doing during the pandemic, the projects he’s currently working on, and what he hopes to do once the world gets back to normal. ‘Confessions of a Klingon Linebacker’ YouTubeJ.G.

Hertzler’s biggest role in the “Star Trek” universe was on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” he’s one of the many actors who has appeared in multiple “Star Trek” series. None of his other roles were as major as General Martok, but he made one-off appearances in both “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.” While on the set of “Enterprise,” regular cast member John Billingsley, who played Dr. Phlox, introduced Hertzler to a weekly tradition followed by the cast and crew. Unfortunately, Hertzler’s participation in this tradition ruined it for everyone else.

    CBS Michael Dorn as Worf Michael Dorn is a screenwriter, producer, and pilot. He’s also a musician and director. But what fans know him best for is the role he made famous — the heroic and grouchy Mr. Worf. From the very beginning, when Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry told Dorn to make the role “his own,” Dorn did as much to create the character as any writer or producer did. Over the past few years, Dorn has been busy with video games, animated voiceover projects, and even a few on-screen gigs too (like Derek Ting’s Agent Revelation). In his free time, he’s written an entire screenplay for a Western, which he’d star and direct as well, called Quentin Hawks and the Road to Trinidad. But now, it seems that the wishes of Trek fans the world over may be finally fulfilled. Thanks to a tweet by Dorn himself, Mr. Worf might be coming back: Just got the news, being summoned back into action. Starfleet calls. #ad — Michael Dorn (@akaWorf) April 19, 2021 For years, Dorn has been campaigning for Mr....
    Jan Thijs/CBS Interactive Klingons from "Star Trek: Discovery" The redesign of the Klingons for Star Trek: Discovery may be one of the most controversial topics in the Trek fandom. When fans first saw the new Klingons, many were very upset that the newest installment in their favorite franchise had seemingly chosen to ignore the established Star Trek canon. Klingons had looked the same for over three decades and there were several canon reasons why they looked the way they did. Yet, Discovery chose to go in a completely different direction with the popular Trek aliens.Classic Klingons vs. ‘Discovery’ Klingons YouTubeKlingons from “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the appearance of the Klingons had remained generally the same. Though each Klingon had different forehead ridges, every Klingon had distinct forehead and nose ridges, a dark skin tone, lots of hair, which was usually worn long and loose, bushy eyebrows and facial hair. Discovery’s Klingons were a vast departure from this uniform look. They had two very different skin tones: a gray shade and a charcoal shade. The...
