As a devotee of all things Star Trek, I would absolutely consider this for the collection. So what do we need to consider? This book is copyrighted by Paramount, the mother ship of all things Trek. It was published in 1985. Is this a concern? Has the Klingon language and culture changed? The last reference in the book sources Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. (Hardly the best movie, but I will accept the authenticity of this dictionary) These kinds of items are fun and appropriate for a library to collect. However, we should be on the lookout for more current interpretations. I don’t want to show off my uber nerdy knowledge of the original series, but the Klingons did change in appearance to the current “look” with the craggy head, and without suitable explanation. Can I trust this dictionary to treat the Klingons with respect?
Live long and prosper and don’t forget to click here and enjoy some of Spock’s wonderful poetry since you are working a Star Trek theme today.
