The Klingon Empire has landed in Sweden

The extraterrestrial warriors from the Omega Leonos Star System has landed in Sweden. The “Visit Qo’noS” Klingon Tourist Center opened at the Turteatern in Stockholm in February and will give ordinary humans live-act presentation of Klingon culture and customs in collaboration with The Klingon Institute of Cultural Exchange.

At the Turteatern you will get the possibility to try cuisine, participate in sing-along opera, and a chance to acquire useful lifesavings tips in your everyday interaction with Klingon and Klingon customs. The opera adaption of ‘Romyo je joloywI’ is better known on Earth as Romeo and Juliet’. Until 25 March you may plan your holiday to the great empire and the ‘First City on the planet Qo’noS without risking any discomfort or premature death.

The Klingons are the extraterrestrial warriors eager to build bridges with humans and attract them to their planet. According to the Turteatern the performances will be held in both Klingon and English.

Turteatern is a small theatre in Stockholm which now has been transformed into the world’s first “Klingon tourist center” in a playful bid to boost tourism in Qo’noS (pronounced “Kronos”). Qo’noS is the fictional home planet of the alien species from the “Star Trek” franchise.

Visitors will be given tourist information upon arrival, like a map of First City, brochures and visa application material. But be warned: The Klingon ambassadors, Ban’Shee, Mara, Morath and Klag are all from the House of Duras and don’t exactly have the best track record for being nice to humans or the Federation.  According to artistic director, Nils Poletti, the “Klingon Ambassadors feel like the image of themselves spreading through the TV series Star Trek: Discovery is misleading and incorrect.”  So, tread lightly, this is a delicate alliance.

“The Klingons have sent drawings of what they would like the center to look like. And we have a human team that has tried to create that,” says Nils Poletti, artistic director at Turteatern.
