I feel an opportunity was missed here to explain that Klingons don't have
even/odd, they have "divisible by 3", "has a remainder of 1 when divided by
3", and "has a remainder of 2 when divided by 3". That would actually be in
line with how Klingon mathematics is explained in TKD, how their display
grids are shown to work visually in the shows and movies, and how the
cardinal directions have been explained to us.
