Coming up on Friday is Trek Trax Atlanta, and I’ll be there to speak about my experiences with Klingon.
As can happen in the current economy, preregistration sales weren’t as robust as anticipated, and the convention regretfully had to cancel the scheduled appearances of its top tier guests.
A side effect of this is that I’ve been bumped up a bit, and I take it as a personal challenge to provide just that much more value for the attendees so that no one feels too disappointed. It should still be a glorious convention!
With that in mind, here’s my new schedule from Friday, April 20th, through Sunday, April 22nd. Please note that there are additions and time changes from the previously posted preliminary schedule.
Friday, April 20th:
8:00 – 10:00 | Ashford | VIP Champagne Reception
An opportunity to mingle as we enjoy hors d’oeuvres, champagne, and Diet Coke.
10:00 – 11:00 | Centennial I | Twenty Years of Pimping the Klingon Language
Q&A and some strange tales of pushing the Klingon language for two decades.
Saturday, April 21st
1:00 – 2:00 | Centennial III-IV | The Sounds of Klingon
An interactive session with just a bit of spitting as we master some of the trickier sounds.
7:00 – 8:00 | Centennial III-IV | Ten Things Every Klingon Should Know How to Say… in Klingon!
Eric Koske and I instruct you in some essential Klingon phrases.
Sunday, April 22nd
10:00 – 11:00 | Centennial III-IV | Klingon Religion
Tony Roberts and I discuss religion, Klingon style!
2:30 – 3:30 | Centennial I | The 2012 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
Join David Orange, Morgan Gendel, and me as we judge the event. Yeah, yeah, it’s a tough job…
When I’m not busy with the above, I’ll either be grabbing a bite in the hotel restaurant, sitting at a table selling the limited number of KLI books I can stuff into my carry-on bag, and just generally hanging out with anyone who wants to chat. With luck, there’ll be some Diet Coke nearbye too.
