Rura Penthe

Rura Penthe is a penal colony planetoid of the Klingon Empire. It is sometimes called "the alien's graveyard," because most prisoners die on this asteroid, due to its bad weather conditions. Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy were sentenced to "spend the rest of their natural lives" on the penal asteroid, but managed to escape. (1)

The klingon spelling for it is rura' pente'.


rura' pente'Daq chuch ngevlaH ghaH.
He can sell ice on Rura Penthe.

The expression is descriptive of somebody who can do most anything, even under adverse conditions. (2)
