Elements of the Cold Death Quadrant, including members of the IKV Rakehell, IKV Warhammer, IKV Black Thunder and other groups were all in attendance at MarsCon over the first weekend of March.
The MarsCon theme this year was pirates, and many Klingons dressed the part with the Rakehell throwing an appropriately themed party: "Come Join the Imperial Navy." The party drink of choice was Captain Jack Sparrow, featuring a secret ingredient.

The Rakehell ran a Klingon Dating Game, which had the audience howling to the responses prospective dates gave to the questions posed by the fine array of Klingon suitors that included such gallant warriors as Qe'Pa, JaPa, K'Elvis, and The Kahuna of the KSD, Sqotty MacKlingon. Contestants were pulled from the audience, and a rip-roaring time was had by all.

Of course, the Klingons also dominated the Feddie run Intergalactic Feud, and made of with much booty to the chagrin of the red shirts that failed to slow down one of the Klingon teams, lead by Qe'Pa, that commanded the field of play. A second Klingon team, lead by Krom, did not do as well as they blew getting the final name for most quotable Star Trek character, allowing for the Feddies to win in a nearly, kind of closely contested round.
The masquerade for a con of this size (over 700 attendees), was most excellent, with Patrick of the Rakehell showing the boys in pajamas what a Klingon Pirate Captain would look like, as he staggered drunkenly across the stage with his flagon of rum. Or torpedo juice. Or Captain Jack Sparrows.
Over all, much fun was had by all, and the KAG presence was fairly large with the crews of four ships and some 25-30 crew members in attendance.
