-- Star Trek: The Experience will be hosting several events in the coming
months, including guest appearances, autograph signings and "Klingon Empire
Day", June 12.

-- "It's gratifying that the bat'leth has been accepted as one
of the few new bladed weapons that is actually practical.
The Navy department of research and the FBI have also
asked for tracings of the bat'leth for their own research
purposes" -- Dan Curry, speaking about his invention, the Klingon bat'leth

Two comments:

1) I thought that {tlhIngan wo' jaj} was in March.  Or is that Empire Union
Day?  Aren't these the same thing?

2) Can it be that someone in the US Department of the Navy has fan-tasies (!)
of replacing the traditional officer's dress sabre with a {betleH}?!  Could
spiked gauntlets and metal tipped boots be far behind?  (Though I do think
the commander's sleeveless cloak would make a nice addition to the uniform.)
