Star Trek

"A Klingon Christmas Carol"

Nov 29, 2013

It was inevitable. Coming to the Art Academy of Cincinnati is the debut performance of A Klingon Christmas Carol. Dickens’ tale is told in a distinctly Star Trek way, performed all in the Klingon language with opera-esque supertitles for those unfamiliar with their verbiage. Jim Stump welcomes director Mike Hall and actor Donald Volpenhein for a preview of this unique holiday presentation.

With just a few drops of sweat, it will monitor health and diagnose disease on people and in the lab using artificial skin that mimics sweat. Ann Thompson reports in "Focus on Technology."
