“We Klingons are a proud and honourable race and it was an affront to our people that Haynes had not produced a manual for our warship. Following a meeting of the High Council we have decided to spare your lives for now.”

Jeremy Yates-Round, Managing Director at Haynes Publishing says:

“We are thrilled to publish the Klingon version of the Klingon Bird-of-Prey Manual, we feel it was a necessary step to prevent the destruction of our planet.”

The language is spoken fluently by around a dozen people on Earth, but following the publication of The Klingon Dictionary in 1985 around 250,000 people have a basic grasp of the language’s grammar, syntax and vocabulary. The works of William Shakespeare and even parts of the Bible have been translated into the guttural language.

The release follows the huge success of the U.S.S. Enterprise Manual which was released in 2010.
