moved from Forum:Klingon Drinking SongEdit

I originally put this question on Talk:The Way of the Warrior (episode), but my question was not answered, so I moved the discussion here.

In DS9: "The Way of the Warrior", Worf and Huraga sing a Klingon drinking song. OK, now I have a question. I could swear I remember an episode of Voyager where someone sings the exact same song. I think it was either Neelix or The Doctor. Does anyone remember which episode it was? I'm fairly sure there's nothing here about it. If someone knows, I think someone should add the info. Thanks. -Platypus Man | Talk 23:59, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Are you referring to: "Ey-jim TA veh Day JA eeee!"? (at least, in sounding?) - AJHalliwell 00:04, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • The only Klingon drinking song I remember is in "Barge of the Dead". But I don't remember the lyrics, sorry. -- Miranda Jackson (Talk) 00:25, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • From the script:

Ej IM-ta fey DE-ja i. (And the blood was ankle deep.) Ejdahk-so-TAS ghos va Skral byteek. (And the River Skral ran crimson red.) Empa jaj law-moch jaj-push. (On the day above all days.) Jaj Kayless-Molor-migh hohk-chew koo. (When Kahless slew evil Molor dead.) Tough Little Ship 09:56, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

The Drinking Song about the day the Kahless slew Molor was also sung on Voyager: Barge of the Dead. It was in the Mess Hall and the crew had gathered to honor B'Elanna. As she entered the Doctor and 7 of 9 sang the song.

  • It was also sung by Neelix when he went into Tuvok's quarters in "Lineage" - ThEPyroLives jhw549@gmail.com
    • Actually, that was in "Prophecy", when Neelix temporarily moved in with Tuvok so a Klingon family could use his quarters. Jon VS (talk) 01:05, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Has anyone else heard this song in the French dub? Usually they don't bother dubbing the songs, but for this one they did. Seven and the Doctor go so off-key in the second half of the song that I ended up laughing and spitting out my coffee the first time I heard it! (The only other song I can think of that they dubbed was "Falor's Journey", which wasn't as bad because Monsieur Tuvok actually has a decent voice.) Jon VS (talk) 01:05, May 22, 2016 (UTC)
