Klingon language

Although William Shakespeare has been quoted many times in Star Trek, it was a comment made by chancellor Gorkon in Star Trek VI: The undiscovered country that lead to translations of some of his works: "You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him in the original Klingon."

So far, his works Hamlet and Much ado about nothing have been published by the KLI. A Midsummer Night's Dream has been translated, but not yet published. Nick Nicholas translated several sonnets (1)

The T-Shirts of the 3rd qep'a' had a picture of Shakespeare as a klingon on the front, drawn by Gennie Summers.
