These are the voyages of the Imperial Klingon Vessel Raptor's Heart. This year's missions will take it to:

Denny's for a costumed summit with Omaha costumers (more on this in last week's blog, see you there).

We will then warp our way to Congregation ( at the Omaha Comfort Inn & Suites (72nd & Grover), with planned arrival time of April 22, 2016.  After assembling base camp, we be conducting a session of Klingon Speed Dating for the romantically inclined.  And an intelligence test for all Star Trek fans: Klingon Jeopardy.  Where contestants will come for a chance to win chocolate by answering trivia questions correctly but stay for the pain as they will be jolted with a pain stick if their answer question is false.  Watch for us in the Fan area as we will be transforming convention attendees into Imperial Klingons for photo opportunities. 

We then must make our way to Des Moines, Iowa.  The next weekend (April 29 through May 1st) is the annual Demicon convention ( ).   There we will again test the intelligence of attendees with Klingon Jeopardy.  Saturday afternoon we will render aid and assistance to a sister ship, the IKV Black Thunder, as they hold their annual Klingon Jail & Bail, a fund-raiser for the convention's charity.  Many prisoners will be apprehended at the bequest of their friends, meaning they filled out a warrant and paid the arresting fee (a donation for the charity).  Then dragged before the Klingon Magistrate for either incarceration, bail bonding (another donation for the charity), or performing a "stupid human trick"  Then the revenge game starts as the original arrestees swear out warrants for those who had them arrested to begin with.  There may even be an execution, there was last year.

In July, we will project a presence in Omaha again at O!Comicon (  Once more we will transform willing attendees into Imperial Klingons.  We shall also be involved in scouting missions throughout the convention to allow attendees additional photo opportunities.   We shall also be running our game show:  Klingon Jeopardy.  Tell me which do you prefer: chocolate or pain?   One of the announced guests for this year will be Jeffery Combs, who had 9 different characters in Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise.  As he was the first Honorary member of the Klingon Assault Group, we are going to have to plan something very  special for him.

We are also in the early planning stages of an event commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the show that started all this: Star Trek.  But more on those plans as they materialize.  Just know that you should keep September 24, 2016 available for a grand celebration, as only Klingons can.   

And following that we will again have activities at AnimeNebrasKon (, we are looking forward to invading their new facilities.

We will boldly go where no Klingon has gone before!
