It's a real long stretch to go from a shortening of Klingon to Klink to make some association with a TV show that's been off the air for 40 years. Colonel Klink was a well-acted comedic character played by the Jewish actor, Werner Klemperer. Somehow I take a different message from that. Enjoy the comedy for what it is. Take the abbreviation for the fact that this happens in lots of games. Think of Starcraft with the Zerg(lings) and (Pro)toss. Just to add to the ridiculousness, shouldn't we then stop using Feds for the Federation as it would be confused with Federal Agents. Those "Feds" could take exception as well as those people who aren't fond of the government. Klinks is part of the game, go with it, it's not going away. It's just the shortening of a word for convenience sake and that's about it. And considering the OP hasn't posted one thing since the start of this thread, I think it's fair to call this whole thing a troll.

For those who feel the word Klingon is too long, they could just use KDF instead, it is a lot shorter and less likely to stir up ill will.

I never realized that you Klinks were such a sensitive people...

I mean the whole macho killer thing is just an act? I never imagined Worf crying into his pillow at night because someone made a crack about his bony forehead. My whole worldview of Star Trek has been forever changed. The Federation didn't need weapons to fight the Klingons, they need only have hurt their widdle feelings...

Thank you, OP- a little Pure Comedy Gold always brightens my day and your parodic sendup of over-the-top outrage at nothing kept me laughing for a good 15 minutes.

Wait...you mean you were serious?

Ah well...that was good for another 15 minutes, so it's all good.

And actually, the names "Klink" and "Shultz" come from a earlier era than Hogan's Heroes.
In a 1938 Animated Short the Looney Tunes Character Yosemite Sam plays a prison guard by the name of "Shultz" and reports to a "Commandant Klink"...

These Looney Tunes Characters continued to fight and make fun of the Nazi state throughout the years of World War II (1939-1945). Most historians would argue that this was an attempt at propaganda to get the US citizens to view the Nazi's in a humorous light instead of the reality of what war was and still is.

and those historians would be correct. The Looney Toons characters where part of the pro-war propaganda effort to keep the country rolling through and moral for the troops high.
