Hello, and welcome. You’re listening to DaHjaj Hol, your daily dose of Klingon language. I’m your host, Lawrence Schoen.

I’m on an all liquid diet today, which is probably more information than you wanted to know. With that in mind, our noun today is jagh. J, A, GH. jagh means enemy. Time now for some sample sentences.

jagh megh vISoplaHbe’
I cannot eat my enemy’s lunch

vavwI’ jagh rur pInDaj
his boss resembles my father’s enemy

jav jaghpu’ DaSuvmo’ qavuvqu’
because you fought six enemies, I really respect you

Koloth once told me, “the only true enemy is the unwillingness to try new things.” We were discussing some fine points of Klingon grammar and enjoying a truly exquisite Saurian brandy at the time. I like to think he was talking about language and not the brandy. Both open worlds though. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.


Today’s podcast is brought to you by Buffalito Destiny by Lawrence M. Schoen.

“The Amazing Conroy is a stage hypnotist who has parlayed an alien buffalo dog — a creature that eats anything and farts oxygen — into a powerful corporation worth billions. An ambitious plan to use these buffalitos to clean up toxic waste sites places him in direct conflict with a radical anti-alien ecoterrorist organization, and before long, Conroy is on the run with only his pet buffalito, Reggie, and his gambler pal, Left-John Mocker, to aid him. As bizarre dreams guide him inexorably towards a mysterious destiny, Conroy deals with prophetic aliens, ancient Mayan ruins, exquisite sandwiches and the temporally-unstable state of Texas. Part crisis-filled road trip, part gonzo race against time, and all tongue-in-cheek humor and charm, this nutty tale may sound strange, but Schoen somehow makes it all come together.”

–Publishers Weekly

“Only Lawrence Schoen could blend the Mayan eschaton, nightclub hypnotism, corporate elitism, radical environmentalism, and good old-fashioned slam-bang adventure fiction.”
