A North Carolina town councilman planning to run for U.S. Congress has quit his post by submitting a resignation letter in Klingon, the language of a fictional extraterrestrial warrior species on the "Star Trek" TV and film series.
Councilman says 'I quit' in Klingon
David Waddell said he used Klingon to resign from the Indian Trail Town Council on Thursday because the fierce-looking science fiction characters valued integrity, honor and duty.
The letter indicated that Waddell, whose four-year term is up in December 2015, plans to resign at the end of this month.
"Teach (the) city (the) constitution," said the English translation. "I will return next time to (witness) victory."
Waddell, often a minority voice on the council, said he plans to mount a campaign on the Constitution Party's platform for U.S. Democratic Senator Kay Hagan's seat.
