Klingon in Star Trek

A good number of Star Trek episodes contain Klingon dialogue. But sometimes the writers get lazy and instead of using correct Klingon, i.e. tlhIngan Hol ceated by Marc Okrand, they use what we like to refer to as "Paramount Hol", which is gibberish using English sounds that attempts to sound like Klingon.

Here is a list of which ST episodes/movies contain actual Klingon:

Movies

TV episodes

Most Klingon that appeared on TNG and DSN is Paramount Hol, i.e. non-canon Klingon invented by script writers, while some of the phrases are based on The Klingon Dictionary, but written incorrectly in the script. Simple mentions of names or places are not shown here. This list was first compiled by Susan Farmer (aka tevram) and published in the email discussion forum in 1995.(1)

Star Trek: Enterprise

Star Trek: Enterprise has also had several Klingon lines which were not really based on Okrand's Klingon, but some where actually very close.

Star Trek: Voyager

Star Trek: Voyager has also had several Klingon lines which were not really based on Okrand's Klingon.

Star Trek Discovery

The Klingon language spoken in the latest series, Star Trek: Discovery, were translated very well by Robyn Stewart. See Dialogues of Star Trek: Discovery.
