KLINGONS ON THE STARBOARD BOW
Last weekend, one couple married at a Star Trek Convention in London. They were apparently Klingons, although press reports suggest they had actually flown in from Sweden. They had full ceremonial dress and, of course, all the Trekkie props and paraphernalia. It did set me wondering though as to what Klingons do to divorce.
After undertaking Internet research to establish that Klingons are fight- loving creatures who mate through something akin to a domestic battlefield, I learned that they usually mate for life. Well, that solved the divorce conundrum anyway and also explained their name: “cling on!”
