It's Klingon, but not as we know it

The Welsh Government has raised eyebrows after responding to a Conservative politician's formal question about UFOs in Star Trek language Klingon.
Tory Welsh Assembly Member Darren Millar asked economy minister Edwina Hart whether any alien craft had been spotted over the skies of Cardiff Airport since it was brought back into public ownership.
But the Clwyd West AM was surprised when he was given the reply: "jang vIDa je due luq. 'ach ghotvam'e' QI'yaH-devolved qaS."
Which in English, translates as: "The minister will reply in due course. However, this is a non-devolved matter."
Responding to the unusual diversion into trilingualism, Mr Millar added: "I've always suspected that Labour ministers came from another planet. This response confirms it."
However, Welsh Government officials stressed the response to Mr Millar's three questions had been issued by a press officer to a local journalist as a joke.
A full and "formal" response will be made by July 15. However, government sources said officials were surprised that Mr Millar was "wasting Government resources asking questions about UFOs".
