    Thanks mate! That's why I switched my username. For my previous username (now available to anyone else) this avatar would not go well with it.

    Did you pick your name because you like Klag son of M'Raq?

    :shrug: My mom and dad picked my name - I had no say in the transaction.

    Welcome, @Jim Klag , I hope you enjoy it here!

    I believe the name @Kilana2 was referring to was your username. Most of us tend not to use our real names, so we have to pick a name to identify us.

    Although if that is in fact your real last name, having the same name as a Star Trek character is certainly interesting! I guess it could be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective! :lol:

    Yeah. I figured that. I generally use my real name as a username. I suppose it is a happy coincidence (and a pointer to a potential avatar) that my last name links me to the guy who said, "Gagh is always best when served live."

    I also didn't take into account that our newbie might not be familiar with Klag. Klag is mostly a litverse character. Not everyone is familiar with litverse characters with only one on-screen appearance.

    Admittedly, I’ve wanted the Gorkon/Klingon Empire series to return for a while. But now I’m hoping for a return more than ever, because we need this line:

    “I am Klag, son of M’Raq, captain of the IKS Gorkon, the hero of Marcan V! … But you can call me Jim.”

    ;)

    welcome to the both of you! Make yourselves comfortable and don't hesitate to ask a Moderator or one of us oldtimers if you have a question. We're a crazy bunch but most of us are very nice (though some hide their niceness under a grumpy shell *grins at @Santaman*).
    Make sure to visit the Lounges. They are a specialty of this board. Every rank has their own lounge and it's in my experience an excellent place to make friends. Quite a few people who were Cpatains or Fleet Captains with me have become my real life friends :)

    As for Klingon cuisine: I'd prefer targh to gagh. Being eaten alive must be a very unpleasant experience for any being. Indubitably lettuce disapproves of it, too, but I draw the line a step further up on the evolutionary line with oysters and worms.

    Actually, my wife is the true Trekkie in residence. Klag son of M'Raq (obviously because of the name coincidence) is one of the few Star Trek characters I could have answered about coherently. However, I shall learn Trek lore as rapidly as possible. I am a science geek (40 years as an engineer) and a lover of space exploration. Just happy to be here.
