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


The German internet and mobile phone provider T-Mobile published a commercial in January of 2017 on Austrian radio stations in which Klingon was mentioned and spoken. The story of the clip is that a woman learns Klingon, because her download is too slow. She also speaks one Klingon word. This clip is part of a series of TV spots in which the slogan "Wer wartet, kommt auf dumme Ideen" (Who waits, gets stupid ideas) is shown. The spot was produced by the Hamburg advertisement agency Jung von Matt.
