More Information

lenmeS rop is a [native Klingon] disease caused by a bacterium. Its symptoms include high fever, weak-ness, and perhaps abdominal pain, headaches, and a skin rash. Klingons like to say that they don't get sick — hence the adage ropchoHbe' tlhInganpu' ("Klingons don't get sick.") — which probably explains why they tend to avoid talking about lenmeS rop. The etymology of the disease name is not clear, or at least it's not clear to Maltz.
