Name the alphabet

Here’s a text in a mystery alphabet sent in by one of my correspondents. Any ideas which alphabet it is and which language it’s being used to write here?

    looks somewhat like Klingon, But it’s the characters are too fragmented to be that

  2. I was going to say that…

    indeed it is a fictinal writing sistem, and I guess in Romulan, which really looks like with klingon.

    it reminds me of Star Trek too, but i’m not sure..

    I think it is klingon… I saw in also

    That is the Irken font from the cartoon series ‘Invader Zim’ by Johnen Vasquez. Within the show it’s used by Zim and the other Irken alien invaders, but here it’s English.

    I’m fairly sure it says, “Give us the number of votes cast for Willy, Zim’s competitor for skool student president!” Is it maybe taken from the Irken subtitles on the DVD?

  7. Simon says:

    Mike – I think you’re right. It does match the Irken alphabet. An Irken font is available here.

  8. Simon, thanks for the font

    @ 1st I thot it was Romulan myself but I think Mike is rite. It is Irken.
