Star Trek Expert Forum

The Star Trek Expert Forum was the second of three Usenet newsgroups where Marc Okrand answered questions and provided lots of interesting information about Klingon. It was established after the Microsoft Network expert forum had been closed in late 1997. In particular, the Star Trek experts forum moved to startrek.expertforum on 31 December 1997 (1) . This turned out to be very confusing, as all the topics were merged into one forum, so the topics were split up and posts about Klingons went to startrek.klingon in early 1998.

Messages by Okrand

From March until July 1998 until Okrand wrote a total of 7 messages in this board (2). Not all of them contained new information.
