It’s been a few years since I’ve put in an appearance at a Klingon or Star Trek convention, but that’s all about to change. I’ll be talking the talk at Trek Trax Atlanta from Friday, April 20th, through Sunday, April 22nd. It’s been far too long since I’ve been back to Atlanta, and I’m looking forward to the trip.

Here then is my my pre-final schedule for this grand event. It may change, but I’m thinking it’s pretty solid:

Friday, April 20th:
10:00 – 11:00 | Centennial I | Twenty Years of Pimping the Klingon Language (M)
 Q&A and some strange tales of pushing the Klingon language for two decades.

Saturday, April 21st

2:30 – 3:30 | Chastain | 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 | Chastain | 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 | Chastain | Klingon Religion
 Tony Roberts and I discuss religion, Klingon style!

2:30 – 3:30 | Centennial I | The 2012 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
 Join Todd Bryant, David Orange, Spice Williams, and me as we judge the event. Yeah, yeah, it’s a tough job…

When I’m not busy with the above, they tell me there’ll table where I can sit and sell various materials from the KLI, chat with attendees, and generally hang out. With luck, there’ll be some Diet Coke nearbye too.

I would like to attend Trek Trax but real life obligations have minimized my ability to travel.  I was wondering if there might be any possibility of having your Klingon panels podcasted or maybe just video taped for viewing, (I’m especially interest in the one on Klingon Religion).  Wishing you much success and enjoyment at Trek Trak.

A not unreasonable request. I personally have no objection to my panels being recorded, but I’m not going to be in a position to handle it, nor am I the one to ask. I’d recommend querying the convention’s organizer, Eric Watts.

One suggestion: put some spin on it so that he sees more value in it for him. For example, a recording wouldn’t just be for your benefit, but could be put on the website as an inducement to show people what to expect at the next convention.

Also, if you’re not familiar with it, you might want to check through my website for the full year of daily Klingon podcasts I did in 2011.

Thanks for your good wishes. It has been a very long time since I’ve been in Atlanta, and I’m very much looking forward to the visit.
