When a Conservative minister asked the Welsh Government for information on UFO sightings he got a very puzzling response. It was made in Klingon, a made up language used by an aggressive alien race in the TV series Star Trek.

Assembly Member Darren Millar submitted a question on behalf of a consituent who wanted to know how many aliens had been sighted at Cardiff Airport.

The response he got was: "jang vIDa je due luq. 'ach ghotvam'e' QI'yaH-devolved qaS."

It translated as: "The minister will reply in due course. However this is a non-devolved matter."

It's thought to be the first time Klingon has been spoken in official business at the home of Welsh politics. Here are the questions submitted by Mr Millar that drew such a puzzling response:

  • Will the minister make a statement on how many reports of unidentified flying objects there have been at Cardiff Airport since its acquisition by the Welsh government?

  • What discussions has the Welsh government had with the Ministry of Defence regarding sightings of unidentified flying objects in Wales in each of the past five years?

  • What consideration has the Welsh government given to the funding of research into sightings of unidentified flying objects in Wales?

Speaking after the incident, Mr Millar said: "I've always suspected that Labour ministers came from another planet. This response confirms it."
