Netflix US removes Star Trek III due to missing Vulcan and Klingon dialogue
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).
But learning to speak Klingon and Vulcan in a week? That’s a tough challenge.
