Message to Kronos

Screenshot of the video
On the occasion of the first Klingon opera 'u' which premiered in 2010, a message was sent to the Klingon homeworld - at least into the direction where one would expect it to be. It was spoken by Marc Okrand and is the longest text in Klingon we've heard from him til today. The video is available on YouTube.
