qep'a' loSDIch

The fourth annual conference of the Klingon Language Institute, our qep'a' loSDIch, was held with great jubilation in Bensalem, Pennsyvlania USA, during mid-July 1997. As has been the case each year, this qep'a' set a new record for attendence and enjoyment. Many new faces were on hand, and many returning veterans of past qep'a'mey. For the second year in a row, the qep'a' was honored by a visit from Dr. Marc Okrand, creator of the Klingon language. As a special treat Marc provided the grand prize in our linguistic competition, a brand new word.

A new feature this year was the addition of a professional photographer, who took the official qep'a' loSDIch photograph:
