Anecdote telling the origin of the word Hutvagh.


[Probably written by Lawrence M.Schoen.]

On his drive up to attend qep'a' HutDIch, it is believed that Marc Okrand was in communication with Maltz (the precise mechanics responsible for this are unknown and unimportant to the present concern). Traffic along the interstate was particularly heavy, a topic which at some point entered into the conversation.

Dr. Okrand reports that Maltz volunteered the Klingon term Hutvagh, a noun, meaning "too many people or things in a place all at once". Maltz further indicated that the term was used as a word play, a substitution for the more common Qu'vatlh which might otherwise be heard in such situations.
