In Which The Geekiness of My Kids Surpasses My Own

A former student of mine who often wore a Star Trek VI T-shirt was trying to make an annoying person go away, so when he spoke to her, she said “Servant, attention!” in Goa’uld.

When I paraphrased this story to my son, he immediately said, “Jaffa, kree!”

Then he said something in Goa’uld that he translated as “You have come here to destroy me” (from the movie, he said).

My daughter pumped her fist and said “Qapla!” — and then asked for a Klingon dictionary.
