The thrill in my heart upon seeing this sentence confirms that I am a nerd. Oh wait, I'm studying Klingon. No confirmation necessary.

And here I was worrying the dedicated nerds would be coming at us with pitchforks for using a Star Wars reference in a Star Trek language course!

No need to worry, I guess. Dual nerds will appreciate SW references (I certainly did!). Hardcore trekkies will gorge on the asymmetry: you can't really say "By Grabthar's hammer, what a savings" in any SW language, can you?

Are you kidding? I loved this reference! I really hope to learn it well so that I can say I'm able to quote Star Wars in Klingon! That would be so awesome!
