Trekkers offered cave tours in Klingon

A cave system near Sydney is going to be the first in the world to offer tours spoken in Klingon.

Near the Blue Mountains west of Sydney in Australia the Jenolan Caves have the same names as a starship in Star Trek: The Next Generation, two Klingon scholars have recorded the tour ready to begin next month.

"The Jenolan Caves near the Blue Mountains west of Sydney is about to become possibly the first tourist attraction in the world to launch tours in the fictional Star Trek language of Klingon."

I've always wondered if it is easy to pick up chicks at Star Trek conventions. Are there any chicks at a Star Trek conventions?

I find it amazing that historically important languages like latin have nearly died out yet a full understanding of klingon is on the rise

This is still minor compared to or to name a few websites out there. I went to the temple of the jedi order website for a good laugh, but I was surprised... they don't actually seem to be trying to get people to believe in anything supernatural, but rather just to commit to being a good person... It's actually kind'a cool... would've been cooler if they had light sabers though!

I honestly wonder how it will go. I don't know a single person that would attend. I am a long way from Sydney, let alone Jenolan though. Seen the caves when young, pretty impressive.

I don't know a single person that would attend. Me either. Surely, there are caves in the US they could've used for this! Are there any chicks at a Star Trek conventions? You betcha....

Can't get people interested in Latin and ancient Greek, but they'll study Klingon? A pathetic comment on the ignorance of the last few generations. Reminds me of the alternate juror in the O.J. Simpson case years ago, who wore a Star Trek uniform each day of the trial. If I were on trial for my life, as O.J. was at the time, I'd be yelling bloody murder over the courts' decision to retain her. Um ... okay ... mebbe "bloody murder" was a poor choice of words in this example ...
