Wow Thursday's roll around so fast! This week is all about the letter “K” and the first thing that came to my mind was “Klingons. So I thought I’d share a little history about the Klingons.
Are you a Trekky?
If so, maybe you already know about Klingons.
If not, maybe you don’t care to know about Klingons.
And no they are not the Klingons from Ur…uh never mind.
Uh …..Anyway back to the Klingons.
Did you know?
Klingons were created by screenwriter Gene L. Coon.
They were named after Lieutenant Wilbur Clingan, who served with Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry in the Los Angeles Police Department.
Wait ….maybe he didn’t like his Lieutenant?
Anyway, the swarthy look of Klingon males was created with the application of shoe polish and long, thin moustaches.
Low budget eh?
My personal favorite Klingon was Worf.
Worf was a prime example of a virile, yet sensitive Klingon. A true warrior.
Klingons are spiritual people.
Klingons are passionate opera lovers.
Betcha didn’t know! Ha!
Would you like to know more about the good ole letter “K”? Then teleport yourself over to Jenny Matlock’s blog (off on my tangent) by clicking here:
May the force be with you!
Uh wait….wrong movie.
