THE 3-MINUTE INTERVIEW: Marc Okrand

Liz Essley / Washington Examiner
Klingon had maybe half a dozen lines in the first movie. So I wrote down what they were saying and made a list of all the sounds I heard. And then I imposed a grammar on it. I made arbitrary decisions about how it worked, and then I just added and added. I only made up what was needed for the movie at the time, and then I expanded it later.
