Klingon is not likely to be encoded any time soon. The basic problem
here is that the Klingon Language Institute has shown little interest
in promoting it; indeed, all of their material is published in Latin
transcription. Bottom line: Nobody seems to want to interchange
data using it, so it's not moving forward.

IMHO *any* fictional script is a candidate for encoding if there is a
user community seeking to actively interchange data using it. Any
non-fictional script ditto.
