To make a long story short, she passed the test, but then she said, “One thing I don't understand. Doesn't gik'tal mean 'to the death'?"
Then it dawned on me, Klingons are Arabs, or at least they speak arabic. Gik'tal sounds like gital, which is fighting to kill, and Mok'bara is grave yard in Arabic.
Is that why Klingons have such vicious tempers and always value honor and bravery before life itself?
