qep'a' chorghDIch

The qep'a' chorghDIch broke with tradition, being the first qep'a' ever held outside of the United States. We met in Brussels, Belgium for several days of revels and conversation in August 2001, with arrangements expertly handled by Lieven Litaer for one of the most successful and enjoyable qep'a'mey so far. On hand were quite a few new faces, as some European Klingonists (normally unable to make the long trip to America) got to attend for the first time. The cross-linguistic discussions were truly enlightening, and we got to hear Klingon spoken with all sorts of accents. Once more, we were favored by the presence of Dr. Marc Okrand, inventor of the Klingon language.
