[Perspectives] Spatial awareness

How is your Klingon? The first scene of Star Trek: Discovery begins with a heated speech in the alien warriors’ language. The Klingons are increasingly concerned about the incursion of Starfleet—the 23rd-century space exploration and defence service of the United Federation of Planets—into deep space. They don’t like this human-heavy coalition, and they certainly don’t trust it. The only words in English come at the climax of the scene, as the speaker quotes the distrusted “fatal greeting” of the enemy: “We come in peace.”
