The Cold Terror Fleet is poised. Poised on the
edge of a great revival.
This past year has seen changes in the leadership and growth
at the ship level
We found bold new leadership in the Cold Blood and the Cold Steel
RoMatha sutai-Who is the new Quad commander in the Cold Blood
he is working hard with the existing leadership to get a revival of
down in the 'Show Me' state. I expect reports of great things from
the fall convention in St. Louis.
We honored the great service that Kol sutai-Bareth has done in the
Cold Steel and - in the grand tradition of giving those that have a lot
on their plate
something more to do - found a new Quadrant Commander in Captain qurgh.
As qurgh will tell you, volunteer in Klingon is "Sap." qurgh is a great
a brilliant fella, just his accent makes him sound smarter, and will do
a fine job reviving the
Quadrant. Marcon also saw the birth of new ships and new interest in
the Quad, we
have every confidence that he will encourage and connect with all the
need to be active in KAG.
The Cold Revenge just keeps perking along, the Bayou Serpent, the
Melota, and all the rest
set a standard of activity and Klingon fun that we all could learn
from. "Don't go changing
to try to please me..." This year saw Commander RiPar being named the
Fleet XO, a position
he will do a great job in, co-ordinating the southern flanks of the
The Cold Death, spurred by their heavy participation in Marcon, has got
its second wind (as if the
worthies needed it) and is growing again! New warriors are discovering
the fun of Klindom and
revealing their ridges! They hope to see a lot more Klingons at their
conventions next year, with
Be'tor being the guest of honor at Marscon www.marscon.org
and seeing many of the
new friends we met at Marcon come to CONvergence <www.convergence-con.org
to party with
the RakeHell, the WarHammer, the RavenShadow, RavensClaw and other
worthies (there is rumors that a Thought
Admiral or two will be there).
While I never feel the fleet is in 'bad' shape, I have to tell you I am
as satisfied by the past year and optimistic about the coming year
as I have been in a long time. I could talk a lot more about new and
continuing developments, but we will tease you
with the idea that the best is yet to come!
