Here’s the funny thing about people who learn to speak Klingon.  Some of them are very much the costumed fans you see hanging around scifi conventions.  However, quite a few of them don’t give a damn about Star Trek.  Someone went out and invented a language, and that just makes their hearts go all pitter-pat.
