"DAYS OF HONOR"
The Klingon Fan Version
An International Klingon Fan Event weekend.
Every ship/chapter of EVERY Klingon-style fan club observes the "DAYS OF HONOR" in a way of their own choosing.
It will be the weekend closest to March 23rd. The Events will start Friday morning and continue until just before midnight
of Sunday night. The weekend near March 23rd was chosen for that was the day when "Errand of Mercy" first aired
in 1967 as part of the original STAR TREK television series. That was the first appearance of Klingons on television.
The Event each ship does should be VERY PUBLIC-ORIENTED and attract the attention of the local press and media outlets.
It should be something positive that makes STAR TREK fans look good and impresses the average person in the community.
The Event must be something that can be viewed as 'honorable' or involves the concept of honor. (examples on next page...)
The Event should feature prominently UNIFORMED KLINGONS - both men and women Klingons preferably. Costumed "Aliens" of
'other' science fiction cultures are invited and welcome to join in on the events.
Federation and Starfleet-style ship/chapters, if interested, ARE WELCOME to 'join' in on the festivities. The Holiday was
started to also celebrate the honor of a Klingon's adversaries as well. (The books propose that Cmdr. Kor and Capt. Kirk
started the Holiday & Tradition.)
