 Yes, Klingon counts.

I'm also curious as to which ones. Is English your first language? Second language? Maybe you don't even speak english properly. With about half the users of this site being beyond just the United States, I'm interested in how that effects the multitude of languages in the community. Hell even some of the United States users would probably know more than one language.  
 
I, personally, am only fluent in English. I've taken a good bit of French in school, but I definitely wouldn't say I could keep up in conversation with a fluent person. I've also taken a small bit of German, but I barely have a grasp on it.

Sadly, only one, English.  I took some Spanish in high school, but I've forget everything since I didn't practice at all.

Two languages - Polish and English with English being the second one. I can't find a way to fit "it scared the dick out of me" phrase here. Damn.

Fluently, one. I can hold my own in Spanish, though.

What kind of a language doesn't let you say "it scared the dick out of me"? That phrase is the crux of modern language.

French, un petit peu
German, Sehr gut
 
Used to 'speak' a bit of Latin at school, but that was more than 6 years ago.

Unlike Klingon, the Language of Love does not count. What gamer can't speak Love?

I meant that I can't fit it to this specific thread. If you look at my recent posts, you can find a specific pattern in them. Special thanks go to Steve Blum.

Just the one, but I am a certified beginner in Polish, even though I don't remember anything from the lessons.

Two fluently, 3 quite well. 
 
English and Hungarian (Both are about on par with the other, although, given that I live in the US, probably English). 
 
I also speak French, but I speak it less-than-fluently.

Three languages for me.  
English as a first language, Irish (poorly) and German (also poorly).

English natively, Italian mostly fluently, Spanish almost fluently when I don't get it confused with Italian, and I'm reading-fluent in Latin and Ancient Greek (go useless college majors!) 
 
Also I can read music. That totally counts.

I grew up speaking English and French. I can hold my own in Attic Greek and I can even speak a little Latin.

If you're a loner, or had many foreign girlfriends, you can speak (read) a lot of languages. You read Russian love letters and claim to be understanding Pessoa in Portuguese, maybe to seem more of a loner to a foreign girl who wants to be your girlfriend. "Of course, I read Strindberg in Swedish, lads," but you only know enough Deutsch to have read a few Dürrenmatt plays that are somewhat related.
 
For myself, I only know English. I can read Cioran and Artaud in French. Who couldn't? And Borges wrote the best books for shelves, please put Spanish on the list, too.
 
Yes.

Seven, but five of them are Lunar languages. The other two are English and a bit of French, although I am trying (poorly) to learn Japanese (don't laugh, damn you!).

I thought Moon people were especially welcome. Given the "on the moon" nature of several Bombcasts.

I hear it was originally Shakespeare who came up with the phrase.
