Re: Klingon word for ice cream?

As of yet, there is no known Klingon expression for "ice cream". You might describe popsicles as nIm taD naQ(mey) ("frozen fruit juice stick(s)") and soft ice cream as tunbogh nIm taD ("frozen milk which is soft").

I don't remember the actual Klingon word(s), but I think it roughly translated out as "a warrior's goop."
vaj HuH = "warrior slime"

vaj chatlh = "warrior soup" (or "warrior nonsense")

Klingon ice cream comes from the mammary glands of a adult female Targ. Milking a Targ by hand come with a four percent fatality rate.

^ Yeah, but trying to hook one up to a milking machine has an eight percent fatality rate.

Re: Klingon word for ice cream?

There must be a word for it, because in the TAS episode "Practical Joker" the virus also affected the Klingon ship. They were heard to be furious that their food synthesizers were throwing out desserts, including ice cream sundaes (or some sort of ice cream-based dessert).

Those were Romulans in Practical Joker, I believe.
