A Klingon Christmas Carol

Chris Lipscombe's greatest achievement regarding the Klingon language is without any doubt his translation of the Charles Dickens' famous play A Christmas Carol into A Klingon Christmas Carol (2)(3). From 2007 until 2013 [citation needed] he was the language coach for the play in Chicago and for the 2013 showing of the play in Ohio.
