Klingon Language Support

From Documentation/unicode.txt:

Klingon language support

In 1996, Linux was the first operating system in the world to add support for the artificial language Klingon, created by Marc Okrand for the “Star Trek” television series.  This encoding was later adopted by the ConScript Unicode Registry and proposed (but ultimately rejected) for inclusion in Unicode Plane 1.  Thus, it remains as a Linux/CSUR private assignment in the Linux Zone.

This encoding has been endorsed by the Klingon Language Institute. For more information, contact them at:


Maybe Linux isn’t ready to take over the world yet, but at least it’s ready to take over the universe…
