Of course, not every episode of Star Trek featured Klingon, Romulan, Vulcan, or another conlang. Klingon was not invented until the Star Trek movies. Some television episodes using Klingon dialogue include: ST: TNG: A Matter of Honor, The Icarus Factor, The Bonding, Sins of the Father, Birthright Part II, Redemption I & II; ST: DS9: The Way of the Warrior. ST: Enterprise did not always use canonical Klingon (tlhIngan Hol) but Klingon-sounding words (called Paramount Hol by its critics, in reference to the production company).
