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

We celebrate this last day of our eighth month with an appropriate exclamation: Ha’. Capital H, A, Apostrophe. Ha’ means let’s go! or come on! We’re two thirds of the way through the year, so we shouldn’t dally here. Instead, come on, let’s go!

Ha’ romuluSngan vIlegh ‘ej ‘oj betleHwIj
let’s go, I see a Romulan and my bat’leth is thirsty

Ha’ ma’eqchugh cha’logh maSoplaH
come on, if we’re early we can eat twice

Ha’ be’nI’ jup yatlh vImaS
let’s go, I prefer your sister’s pregnant friend

Don’t run out and begin using exclamations too quickly. After all, you might scare the humans you encounter with your passionate use of the warriors’ tongue. Oh, who am I kidding, we both know you’re going to rush right out and do this, aren’t you? After all, what better way to open worlds? 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.”
