From the KAG DCO
Ho, ho, ho, and welcome to the holiday edition of the Mindscanner!
One of the perks of being the editor is that I get to write my bit last, after reading what everyone else wrote. For example, I read what Kerla said regarding the way I spell "honour". I don't know what she's talking aboot; that's the way honour is always spelled, eh?
Kidding aside, we have a great issue for you! As befitting a holiday edition, there are a few special treats, which I hope you enjoy. But as with the last couple of issues, we are focused on KAG's upcoming 20th anniversary celebration. Marcon membership rates go up January 1st; if you haven't already signed up, now would be a good time to spend some of that money your great aunt put in your stocking. And a Marcon membership for a crewmate would make a great Boxing Week gift!
In the last couple of issues, I talked about costuming. I hope you have all been busy spiffing up your uniforms in preparation for the big shindig. But now is the time to turn our attention to programming. To paraphrase a quote from Earth history, "Ask not what KAG ATTACKS can do for you; ask what you can do for KAG ATTACKS!" Every region of KAG has their specialty, things they do particularly well. The ships in the Cold Revenge Quadrant are masters at boffer batleth combat, the crew of the Rakehell are famous for their dramatic performances, others are Klingon linguistic experts, or write filk, or have any number of other specialties. THAT is what we are all going to Marcon to see, not that "British Invasion" stuff the concom has been touting!
KAG is, at its heart, about showmanship. I would like to see every local group attending Marcon submit a panel to their programming department. If we all show off what it is we do best, it will be a fantastic showcase for KAG! Let's make those Brit-fen step out of their big blue phone booths and see what they're missing! Qapla'!
