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


A glommer is a fictive alien animal that appeared in Star Trek: The Animated Series. (1) There is no canon spelling for this animal, but two non-canon spellings have been used.

The first appearance was in 2007 in the novel Star Trek: Forged in Fire, where the author decided to klingonize the word "glommer" as glo'meH.(2) This violates ordinary syllable structure in exactly the same way that "glommer" does. In 2013, glo'meH was used as an English word in How to Speak Klingon, which was then properly klingonized as ghIlo'meH. (3)
