I started to learn elvish, but my brain forgot it or something...
I'm going to try again, as well as dwarvish.
Never thought about learning klingon though...

language btw...

Anyway, how do you know?
Maybe there isn't a universe, maybe there is.
Maybe there are other races, maybe they aren't.
But i doubt any universe would choose something as geeky as klingon as its language.

why? The conditions needed for life are very specific. yes there are a lot of stars and planets etc. but there is a lot of difference between them available and it is not unreasonable to assume that we are the only one out of perhaps billions of planets to harbour life.

ok- so there are some people who, not content with dressing up in wierd clothes and putting on pointy ears, have to try and start learning an imaginary language. what is the point? it's difficult enough to learn german or french- but at least they could be useful.

Klingons don't have pointy ears....
Anyway, there isn't much point, except that its something unusual.
Thats why i want to learn elvish. Its something different.

But it's like you said. There are well over a billion stars and planets out there. Some of them have to be able to support life and some has have to evolved to their living conditions.

But why do they have to have life forms?
Let alone sentient ones, and communicating with language etc.

why? you have to have a planet not too big or the gravity will squah you. not too small or you can't hold on to the surface. not too near the sun or you'll be fried. not to far way or you'll be frozen. the atmosphere must not be too thick or too thin. the days not too long or too short. The star must not be too big or too little- and must be stable. it is generally agreed that there must be water on the planet to sustain life- and if you think about it only 1 out of 9 planets in our solar system alone has water. These criteria and others make it very unlikely that there is life on other planets

Spock certainly wasn't the only klingon character in Star Trek, so that is simply wrong.
