Letters. We get letters. Stacks and stacks of letters.

io9 has compiled a list of 13 alien languages that have established alphabets - and downloadable fonts.  Some were created for a specific purpose, like Futurama's Alienese, used to write background in-jokes for fans.  Others were born out of the fandom's passion for a fictional world or culture - see Klingon or the 118 letter Kryptonese alphabet.  All of them acknowledge in some way the Welsh proverb  "Cenedl heb iaith, cenedl heb galon." 

"A nation without a language [is] a nation without a heart"
