When talking about Klingon, the addendum refers to the last twenty pages (p. 173-191) of The Klingon Dictionary, which have been added in 1992 to the first version of TKD which was released in 1985. It should not be confused with the "Appendix", the chapter of TKD entitled "A Selected List of Useful Klingon Expressions".

The addendum contains several grammatical rules and about 170 new words that had been developped for Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
