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

Your noun today is yuQ. Y, U, Capital Q. yuQ means planet. Here are some examples of how you might use it:

tugh yuQwIj luHIvrup
soon they will be ready to attack my planet

yuQvamDaq mughato’mey tu’lu’be’
mugatos are not found on this planet

puj yuQvetlh puqpu’ ’ej ghaytan vIng
this planet’s children are weak, and they likely whine


Maybe you’ll take today’s noun and think of all the different kinds of things you can say about it. Maybe you’ll imagine (in Klingon, of course) an amazing new planet. Maybe you’ll dream of going there. And so you should. After all, I keep telling you that language opens worlds. Seems only fair that you get to visit some of them. qo’mey poSmoH Hol

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

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

— Jay Lake, Campbell Award winner

“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.”
