Howard Casebolt displays his Axanar license plate!

Friday, April 29th, 2016

I start off with this pic of Howard Casebolt displaying his Axanar license plate.  This seems to be a trend!  We love it when fans show their Axanar fandom so proudly.  I believe this is the fourth license plate we have seen.  Better go get yours!


Meanwhile, as to the recent amicus brief filed by the Language Creation Society, the British Newspaper The Guardian had this interesting quote:

“Paramount’s attorney, David Grossman, quickly argued that it was “absurd” to say that Klingon, invented in 1984 for a film, exists as an independent language.

“A language is only useful if it can be used to communicate with people, and there are no Klingons with whom to communicate,” Grossman wrote in a brief. ”

Well, first of all, Klingon was invented in 1979 for Star Trek: The Motion Picture.  And second of all, have you ever been to a Star Trek convention?

Klingon is spoken all over the world.  College courses are given in it.  And people use it as a legitimate form of communication.

Oh, even the Ottawa Metro published an article in Klingon…

Well, that is all for today, more this weekend!

  • I don’t know if anyone else has noticed and spotlighted the irony yet, but I find it vastly amusing that the two Klingon strategies mentioned in the movie Axanar appear to be in direct use in the legal case … Axanar’s deft legal team (and the LCS who filed the Amicus Brief on your behalf) could be viewed as employing a version of the Klingon strategy of vuvHa’chu’wI’ to’ {precise/masterful humiliation} in response to Paramount’s ham-handed attempts at natlhchu’wI’ {Devour everything}.

    Best Regards.
