What exactly, precisely would Unicode Inc. need in relation to the
Intellectual Property Rights in order to proceed please?
Would a permanent licence to use the glyph designs in The Unicode
Standard be enough?
Would Unicode Inc. be willing to pay the owner of the Intellectual
Property Rights a one-off payment of one United States Dollar as
consideration for providing such a licence if that were the way to
resolve the matter satisfactorily?
Would Unicode Inc. be willing to include in The Unicode Standard and in
the code chart a statement mentioning the licence and thanking the owner
of the Intellectual Property Rights?

Yet if Unicode Inc. were to do most of the necessary work first and then
write to the Intellectual Property Rights owners stating that Unicode
Inc. would like to encode the Klingon glyphs into Unicode, and would do
so if the Intellectual Property Rights issues could be resolved, and
including a detailed draft of what this encoding would involve, then
maybe that would lead to progress.
