Netflix Removes Star Trek Movie Until It Can Verify That the Klingon and Vulcan Translations Are Correct

Why did Netflix pull down Star Trek III: The Search for Spock? Well, you wouldn't want to accidentally say the wrong thing to a Klingon warrior. You could end up with a mek'leth through your skull. Radio Times reports:

Netflix US is to remove Star Trek III: The Search For Spock from its film listings until it is able to provide authentic subtitles for the Vulcan and Klingon diagloue.

The on-demand service thinks it can do the tranlsation work in about a week – and credit to them for trying. It seems most DVDs have simply injected a lot of English dubbing to overcome the problem, hiding behind the suggestion that people don’t like subtitles.

This is not a popular choice among fans – particularly those who’ve actually learnt the language (Netflix could do with finding these guys).

That is what actually happened. The movie was pulled because it was accidentally missing the original subtitles for the Klingon scenes. They pulled it to restore those subtitles. I saw the non subtitled version myself. Then I also saw a tweet saying that is why they took it down for a week.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
