Charles Dickens’ `A Christmas Carol` staged in Star Trek language

London: Sci-fi fans in Chicago have staged the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol entirely in Klingon, the fictional language of the villainous alien race in `Star Trek`.

The play is being staged at the Raven Theatre in Chicago in the language created more than 30 years ago for the Star Trek race of long-haired, ridge-foreheaded warriors, the Daily Mail reported.

The play includes a puppet with the race’s distrinctive clothing and alien features that is used to represent Tiny Tim.

It was written by Christopher O. Kidder and Sasha Walloch and was originally translated by Laura Thurston, Bill Hedrick and Christopher O. Kidder.
