I am working on an interesting project alongside other people, to give us all something interesting, but I would like to know, if there could be any legal issues with using the Klingon alphabet on my website. I know the language is porperty of Paramount, but how about the symbols (letters) themselves?

Depends on how you intend to use it I guess, and whether as a marketing tool or a simple decoration. I don't think that anyone could call foul on you for randomly including what basically amounts to a bunch of weird squiggles and triangles.

Yup for personal reasons its alright but if your going to make some money on it then you have to pay the piper or artists est.
