This edition of the DVD from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock contains a 21-minute long video with Marc Okrand, in which he explains the creation of the Klingon language. See Okrand about Klingon.

On the back of the box, the following Klingon sentences are shown without any translation:

# Klingon translation
1 Qugh la'vaD QIn pav. Urgent message for Commander Kruge.
2 qa'vam jan SeH DIvI'. The Federation controls the Genesis device.
3 qa'vam yuQ Quv DaghojmeH Duyma'vaD yIjatlh. To learn the coordinates of the Genesis planet, talk to our agents.
4 qa'vam jan yISuq. Take the Genesis device.
5 potlhbe' to'. The tactic isn't important.

The second line could be a lip-sync of the phrase "controls the Genesis device".


The DVDs and their covers for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country contain no special characteristics concerning the Klingon language.
