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

Today’s noun is a powerful word. It’s HoS. Capital H, O, Capital S. HoS means power, or strength, or energy. It’s pretty straightforward, as these examples illustrate:

nutoj jagh HoS
the enemy’s strength tricked us

HoD ‘elqa’ qa’ HoS
the energy of the spirit has entered the captain again

HoSwIjmo’ wej maH romuluSnganpu’ vIHoHlaHta’
because of my power I was able to kill thirty Romulans

Maybe you haven’t found someone to speak Klingon to, yet. Maybe you’re still struggling along on your own. It doesn’t matter. Your competency and command of the language will be greater for the effort you’re putting in now when that magical day of back and forth conversation finally comes. And then, what worlds you’ll open! qo’mey poSmoH Hol.


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

Conroy has left Earth far behind and taken his hypnosis act beyond Human Space.

It should be show business as usual, except for the energy being the size of a hundred suns that wants to study him, a plot to smuggle liquid gravity, a troupe of alien sex wrestlers, a hypnotized ghost, and Reggie his buffalito stuck in a saurian toilet…

“If you like hilarity along with your mayhem, or perhaps mayhem with your hilarity, then Buffalito Contingency was written with you in mind.”

— Walter Jon Williams, Nebula award-winning author

Buffalito Contingency‘s aliens were so alien I reveled in my humanity, and the humans were so human I resolved to revel in the moment. But the book was so entertaining that humanity and the moment took a walk while I finished a really good read.”

— Howard Tayler, Hugo-nominated cartoonist & author
