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

Later today, I’ll be flying off to the qep’a’ which begins tomorrow, but before I do, we have time to open up Marc Okrand’s Klingon for the Galactic Traveler and expose you to a new verb. That verb is jIj. J, Capital I, J. jIj means be cooperative.

juplI’ vIHoHDI’ bIjIjchoH
as soon as I kill your friend, you will become cooperative

reH tojrup jIjwI’pu’
the cooperative ones are always ready to deceive

romuluSnganpu’ jIj law’ mughato’mey jIj puS
Romulans are more cooperative than mugatos

You don’t have to be cooperative to learn Klingon. You can ignore everything I tell you, at least on a conscious level. It doesn’t matter if you agree with me or not, any more than that you have to enjoy all those odd practice sentences I’ve been giving you about mugatos. You can resist me every podcast and every day, but even if you do, you’ll still be here, and still soaking up the language. 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.”
