Klingon Language Wiki
Logo of the Wiki
The Klingon Language Wiki
is a free and public database for anything related to the Klingon language
. This includes not only grammar and vocabulary questions, but also any kind of background information regarding the History of Klingon
, available products and any kind of appearance
in movies and TV-shows. Information about Star Trek
are only explained where necessary or related to klingon.
As of today, the wiki contains 1038 german pages, 1020 english articles, 130 articles in dutch and 58 french pages.
Reason for the wiki
The Klingon Language Wiki was intended as a replacement for the broken KLI
wiki, which had had access difficulties starting 2004 and was not accessible from 2009 to 2014. After the new rush for the Klingon language
evoked by Star Trek Into Darkness
in 2013, questions arose several times whether the KLI was dying
. This was a major motivation to re-initiate the KLI wiki, to show the world that the Klingon language is going on.
In the mean time, the KLI was working on its own new website, and also its own wiki
. It seems though, that the goals of their wiki and this wiki are slightly different, so this wiki will keep standing alone and teaching Klingon, while the KLI's wiki is set up for the KLI members to work together.
2014-02-20 Domain Setup
The installation and configuration of the wiki started in February 2014
. In the first step, the wiki could be reached through a subdomain of the qepHom Saarbrücken
's website, wiki.qephom.de.
The software is installed, now configuration starts to give the wiki an individual look. As a basic structure, archived articles from the old KLI wiki
were imported, cleaned up and adapted to the new layout.
At this time it was not clear yet that the KLI was also working on updating their own wiki. Due to several technical and legal problems, it was not possible to combine this Klingon Language Wiki with the wbsite of the KLI.
2014-03-24 Internal Presentation
The new wiki is presented first to Lawrence M. Schoen
, the director of the KLI
. He seems generally interested, but wants to "wait" with the wiki until the planned satellite web of KLI-websites is finished and set up.
The wiki is renamed from "KLIwiki" to "KlingonWiki", so that public access is possible without interfering with the KLI's projects. After the long wait, it would be ineffective to leave a ready-to-use wiki in a hidden space.
