Actually, do Klingons ever party? I suppose revelry and astonishing tales around a bonfire count…as long as blood wine is involved. Speaking of partying Klingons, two of the most raucous will be appearing this weekend at BayouCon in Lake Charles, Louisiana. JG Hertzler (Martok) and Robert O’Reilly (Gowron) will be speaking on panels, signing autographs, posing for photos and mingling with guests at the Klingon Breakfast. Oh, and did we mention that they will be appearing in full Klingon costume during some of the convention? How could it not be awesome?!
