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.
