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

I’m especially fond of today’s noun. It’s QeD. Capital Q, E, Capital D. As has been demonstrated, QeD means science. The following scientifically derived examples may inspire you to research more of your own:

QeDmo’ chom vImojpu’
because of science, I became a bartender

chay’ nuQaH QeD
how can science help us?

romuluSnganpu’ DajeymeH QeD wIlo’ta’
to defeat the Romulans we used science


One could could take a word like “science” and use it to explore every other bit of vocabulary at his or her command, because surely there’s a scientific explanation or perspective on any topic that we have a word for. I’m not telling you to do that, but it’s certainly a possibility. And scientific inquiry does have a way of opening up new ideas, much like language does. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
