    At the end of "Broken Bow", Archer asks his translator what the Klingon said and she says "you don't want to know"---well, I would like to know! (unless they just had the actor speak gibberish, but since Klingon is an invented language that's pretty well established, I doubt it. Anyone here speak Klingon? What did he say?
    Thanks.

    I always considered it a "dialect" of Klingon. The words were brute force translated one at a time using the word lists at the back of the old Klingon Dictionary Book. Translated that way it roughly means:
    "I will not kill you today, Boy."

    well i think it was kinda obvious what he said to Archer by meaning if not words i feel it was something like if i see you again i will slit your throat hence the gesture with the knife and her saying you dont want to know
