Robert O’Reilly (Gowron) and J.G. Hertzler (Martok) Join Marc Okrand, Creator of the Klingon Language As Escape Velocity Extra Explores Klingon Culture Wednesday night, September 23, 7:00 p.m. ET Washington, DC (September 14, 2020) – Actors Robert O’Reilly (Gowron) from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space 9 and J.G. Hertzler (Martok) from Star Trek: Deep Space 9, will commandeer the spotlight Wednesday evening, September 23, when Escape Velocity Extra (EVX) takes a comprehensive look at Klingon culture. The online program – entitled Communicating with Klingons – Interpreting Alien Language and Culture – will air at 7:00 p.m. ET. The cost is a $5 donation to the not-for-profit Museum of Science Fiction. As the most recognizable and extensively developed alien race in all of science fiction, Klingons bring the greatest level of depth and development to not only the Star Trek universe but really the entire world of popular culture. After all, who among us hasn’t called a child strapped to one’s leg a “Cling-On?” Or equated the concept of honor to the legacy of Kahless the Unforgettable? Directing the program will be Okrand, who initially created Vulcan language dialogue for Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and Kristie Alley (Saavik) for the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. He was hired by Paramount Pictures to invent the Klingon language and then coach the actors in three subsequent films and later created the Kelpien language for the Star Trek: Discovery Short Trek episode, The Brightest Star. The September 23 program will consist of a single 90-minute session. For additional information, or to register, please visit
