Indian Trail, North Carolina - Call it boldly going where no politician has gone before.

On Thursday, David Waddell used the Klingon language to write his letter of resignation from a town council in North Carolina.

Waddell says he chose to use Klingon, the language of a warrior race in the “Star Trek” TV shows and movies, as an inside joke. Mayor Michael Alvarez calls the letter unprofessional.

Waddell says he is resigning at the end of this month. His four-year term expires in December 2015.

Waddell says he needs to devote time to mounting a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party's platform against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.
