And of course, when Klingons say "Kill the umpire," they mean it literally...

I don't think I even want to know what Klingons would do to you when you get struck out or don't make it to the bases.

Take me out to the ball game
Take me out with the crowd
Buy me some targ heart and fresh live gagh
Don't take my seat you worthless petaQ
Let's hope, hope, hope that our team wins
If not, it's a good day to die
For there's no honor in losing at home
At the old ball game

Picturing a Klingon baseball game, the baseball scene from "Hook" comes to mind... "The petaQ was trying to steal second base behind the pitcher's back. I put him down like the thief and coward that he was."

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Personally, I have a hard time picturing Klingons playing baseball. 'Why would you hit the ball with the bat and not your opponent?'

Re: I have read Titan #1, #2, & #3...reading #4

Hm...I was very happy with the first three books of the Titan series--but I had a lot of trouble with Sword of Damocles. It's not that I don't like books with a lot going on in them, or that I don't like time travel plots (First Frontier, for instance, RULED) but I found it too fragmented and the main plot rather uninteresting for some reason. The one thing about it that really stuck out, though, and that I am very glad the author did, was to really explore the idea of Jaza as mentor to a Cardassian: Dakal is a character I was VERY glad to see get a lot more airtime, and I could really root for him where for some reason I didn't really feel as much for the other characters. What I felt for Jaza--although normally I've really liked him all around--I really had to experience through Dakal this time to make the connection.

I am very much hoping the fifth Titan book will pick up, quality-wise, where the first three left off, bring Dakal further into the main circle of characters, and otherwise not really acknowledge Sword of Damocles any more than necessary.

I have come to terms with the fact that I am a male Vale I have gone from my natural brown to blond, to bleached blond in the past few months and when the time comes I am thinking of going red.
