This year I’ll be spending Thanksgiving Weekend as one of the GoHs at Starbase Indy.

The schedule is coming together nicely, and it’s looking to be a great time. I know they have a few more things planned for me, but here’s what and when I know about right now:

Friday, November 23rd:
7:00 – 8:00 pm Opening Ceremonies
I’m flying in this afternoon and should arrive in time to be part of the opening festivities kicking off the party. Shake off that post-turkey lethargy and join us!

Saturday, November 24th

1:00 – 2:00 pm | A Quarter Century of Pushing Klingon
The Klingon Language Institute began in 1992 and it’s been a wild ride of crazy adventures ever since. Join its founder for an hour long Q&A filled with anecdotes and strange tales of pushing the language around the galaxy.

6:00 – 8:00 pm | Dinner with the Stars
The ever incredible Jen Usellis and I will eat food. Possibly even off one another’s plate! Riveting stuff.

Sunday, November 25th
2:00 – 3:00 pm | The Sounds of Klingon
An interactive session (with just a bit of spitting) mastering some of the trickier sounds of the world’s fastest growing language. You’ll learn how to wrap your tongue around the speech sounds of an alien language.

6:00 – 7:00 | Klingon Grammar Panel
I’ll be joined by some other members of the convention to take your questions and tell you all about the grammar of tlhIngan Hol.

Several seniors members of the KLI are expected to be on hand to heckle and correct me when I make mistakes.

I’ll also be bringing an assortment of books, both Klingon and otherwise. Supplies are limited, and you’ll be heartbroken if you don’t get to but them all.
