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

If you’re listening to this, then there’s a very good chance that I surved my time at the World Science Fiction convention, and I am even now recovering poolside at a resort in Lake Tahoe. Which provides a wonderful segue for the opposite of today’s verb qay’. Lowercase Q, A, Y, Apostrophe. qay’ means be a problem, hassle

it’s not a problem

qay’chugh bImejnIS
if there’s a hassle, you need to leave

qaHoHlaH ‘ej qay’be’ba’
I can kill you and it obviously wouldn’t be a problem

How would it feel to just lay back in the sun, sip a refreshing beverage, and have everything you want to say pop into your head in the Klingon language? That’s what I’m doing right now, and I have to tell you, it feels pretty fine. But, you won’t know until you try it for yourself. But start small. Forge the sun and the beverage, and for now, just sit back and imagine yourself effortlessly speaking Klingon. Imagine the world, and it will come into being. 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.”
