Alas, that is no longer true. Thanks to the intervention of certain 
Klingonists, Klingon has appeared in decipherable writing on /Star Trek: 
Discovery,/ in the one-to-one phonemic alphabet invented by another 
certain Klingonist. This alphabet is directly translatable to our 
Latin-letter transcription. We are stuck with this most boring of 
writing systems being on-screen canon, at least for the /Discovery/ 
Klingons, and no explanation of why the in-universe compilers of /The 
Klingon Dictionary/ had such a hard time understanding it.
