Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is credited with restoring the holidays in Britain to joy and celebration after a period of somberness in the early 1800s. Today the classic tale is keeping the spirit of Star Trek alive in “A Klingon Christmas Carol” – the first play to ever be produced entirely in Klingon. No joke.The story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the ghosts of Christmas are getting a sci-fi makeover as the theater company Commedia Beauregard translates the holiday classic into Klingon, an artificial language created for a fictional warrior race in the Star Trek universe.
