Appearances of Klingon: on television - in movies - in the news - in commercials - in politics - in literature - Translations


During the episode "Star Mitzvah" of the sitcom Frasier, aired on 5 november 2002, the main character Frasier Crane spoke some klingon lines for his son's Bar Mitzvah (a jewish ceremony), because someone had told him it was hebrew. The dialogue was translated by Marc Okrand(1).

The four underlined words were supposed to be there, but somehow got lost before they made it out of Grammer's mouth.


The script had the dialogue in their own phonetic transcription(2):
Frasier: Pookh lod wih le koo.  Hach jahj cho-koov-moakh leng-lidge 
         loo-Teb-jahj leng widge-vahd bel rahp shoave dah-nobe-poo-
         boagh. [in Hebrew] Shabbat shalom.
