Microsoft are one of the sponsors of Destination Star Trek happening this weekend in London and to show it wasn’t just putting their name on an event, they taught Cortana (Microsoft’s answer to Siri) to speak Klingon along with responding to some Star Trek phrases. Watch a video demo below.
Microsoft Adds Klingon and Star Trek Phrases To Cortana
Microsoft chose Destination Star Trek 3 as an opportunity to promote the brand new Nokia Lumina Windows phone. And the way they did it is by adding some functionality to Cortana – its voice-activated assistant for Windows phones.

Notably Cortana now has special Star Trek responses to a number of phrases including "beam me up," "set phasers to stun," "engage," “Star Trek or Star Wars,” and even "speak Klingon."
The My Nokia Blog tried it out, check out the video below.
More coverage from Destination Star Trek 3 in London coming soon.
