veS QonoS

veS QonoS (literally: "War Journal", pronunciation: S) was a journal of the Klingon fangroup Mortas-Te-Kaase, first published in 1989. The main editor was Thomas Scheuer. It was in their first issue where the Klingon letters, now known as pIqaD, were introduced.

Some of the words that were printed in the 1992 addendum of The Klingon Dictionary had first appeared in a story in the veS QonoS edition of March 18, 1990. A subset of these were later used in Conversational Klingon. The entire list was reprinted by permission of both Marc Okrand and the club in HolQeD. (1)
