Klingon Language Cave Tour

Nerdiness has assimilated the world better than Borg nanoprobes. In Australia there are caves that were once featured in a Star Trek TNG episode about Klingons. They have a tour there in several languages, and now, they are the first official tour on the planet for speakers of the Klingon Language.

From Reuters here:

Staff at the Jenolan Caves west of Sydney have added a new out-of-this-world attraction — a tour in the Star Trek language Klingon.

Currently a self-guided audio tour at the caves in the Blue Mountains is offered in eight languages, but staff came up with the idea of adding the fictional language Klingon as the caves did once feature in the popular TV series.

“In the Star Trek universe, Jenolan Caves was first immortalized in the Next Generation episode ‘Relics,’ through the naming of a ‘Sydney Class’ Starship – the USS Jenolan,” the Jenolan Caves Reserve Trust said in a statement.

“We wanted to do something a bit obscure and we will now be the first tourist attraction on this planet at least to have a Klingon tour.”

Nerds.
