I wonder how much the show Enterprise will do to get people interesting
into linguistics and especially conlangs?

Anyone done any work on other sci-fi programs conlangs?

For example, SG1, the alien Ghaould speak? A form of Berber or ancient
egyptian or something else? There is other language, one based it seems
on ancient Punic (Phonecian?).

What about other language that don't use sounds as we understand them..

Tammarians, or like could be interesting.. 1=How is your mother, 2 =

Replacement of whole common phrases with keywords or code words or catch
words.  Sort of like a language form of how Japanese letters are done.
With a combo of Ideografs, Syllables, and roman letters.

Also how has "Wind Talkers" helped in the study of Navajo and other
native american tongues, as well as codes and conlangs?
