A very un-Klingon thing to say. Which I like, because learning Klingonese is fun. And I doubt that I'll ever acquire a disruptor, or a phaser.

People frequently comment on whether something is a Klingon thing to say. I like to think that when a Klingon points his disruptor at you and says, slowly and carefully, muQuchmoH yIHmey, you quickly agree with him and respectfully stop speaking.

I would probably say something like, "Your cranial ridges are impressive, and suggest honor."

You have correctly said, "Some never speak." But I'm not understanding why you have said it.

He or she is responding to the original sentence, muQuchmoH yIHmey Tribbles make me happy with a continuation: "Said no one ever."

It should have -pu' on it, unless you want it to be "says no one ever," otherwise it's correct.

Ah. Thank you. I guess my brain was not able to cross the divide to see the original sentence as a quote, but now I see it.
