This is interesting and frightening all at the same time.

I know people who may be them sometime soon.

*Confused*
Is looking at wedding pictures supposed to make me feel so SAD?

Talk about boldly going where noone has gone before...

And how will they ever show these pictures to their kids? (shudder)

*And how will they ever show these pictures to their kids? (shudder)*

Trust me, if you are married long enough, your kids will think your wedding picture is as funny as a Klingon wedding anyway.

And, if you are married even longer than that, the kind of clothes you wore at your wedding will be back in style. (shudder)

No explanation as to why they got married on Earth? Couldn't be the food.....

Ahhh!! Looks like another case of Irrational Insistence Upon An Identity That Is Not Thier Own." Folks help stamp out IIUAITINTO now! Whether you're an Hawiian Princess or a Klingon warrior, such things would have landed you in the looney bin with Napoleon and Jesus Christ 30 years ago. But now, they just wander the streets and conventions like it was completly normal. Call 1-888-get-real now and donate what you can, operators are standing by. Hurry, the life you save could be you own.

Is there a 1-888-get-jiggy-with-it?

Wait a minute....isn't that the wedding dress being sold on eBay???

Hopefully, they are back in their spaceship and 6 trillion light years away by now.

If not, let's strap an Improbability Drive to them and send them on their way.

Maybe the 9th dimention with the Lectroids? (Or was it 8th?)

I'm just glad it wasn't a Betazoid wedding, the pictures wouldn't get through the school's Sonic Wall Filter. Plus I wouldn't want to see these people ...ahem... dressed for a Betazoid wedding.

If you know what I am talking about, you are a real Trekkie.

"Is looking at wedding pictures supposed to make me feel so SAD?" In this case? Yes very much so

I think you all (ya'll?) have got this all wrong.

Had they dressed "normally," this would have been one butt-ugly wedding party.

But as Klingons they look like ... well ... Klingons! And mighty attractive Klingons at that.

I'm afraid to ask but, what exactly constitutes an "attractive" Klingon? There's a bumpy forehead joke in here I know it.

Oh and Lily: EWW. There's an image I didn't need. Thank God they picked a less... Betazoid way of showing their love. Oh I think I made myself sick there.

But is this worse then a wedding where everyone is forced to dress up as pixies?

Evil little pixies?

Well all I can say is that at least we know who's behind the squid uprising, the snake rebellion, and the cows attacking the MOO-n! Not to mention the crocodiles seem to be heading the group! ;-)

Darn, I wanted to see what their wedding cake looked like.

Reminds me of the time hubby and I went to a Trek event, and ended up in an elevator full of Klingons. One of them rubbed my hubby's buzz cut and they all chortled gleefully. We chortled along with them to avoid bloodshed.

PS, I suppose it was better than being in an elevator full of Betazoids on their way to a wedding on a warm summer day.

Looks like they are all mighty happy about the big day.

Jamester,

8th.

Long live Dr. Lizardo and John Big Bootie

Ummmmm.....WTF?!?!?

What would make anyone think that this is the way to get married. If I looked at my bride that looked like that, sorry, won't be in fighting form for the honeymoon.

I know that last comment probably cost me kink test points, but a guy has got to draw the line somewhere.

This is the sign- THE END IS NIGH

I have no idea if the following customs are accurate -- I merely lifted them from a website -- but I certainly think the wedding would have been much more interesting if these had been adhered to:

Klingon weddings are beautiful ceremonies, with several days of traditional trials & buildup. The male gathers with his closest male friends & relatives to travel the path to kal'hyah, a symbolic /spiritual journey. This 4 day ritual involves a number of physical rigors including fastind, pain, bloodshed & symbolic death. the memories of song & fellowship are meant to prepare the groom for the glorius battles of marriage.

The pre-wedding festivities can be just as difficult for the prespective bride. she must meet the approval of the matriarch of her soon to be family. The bride will present her mother-in-law with a welcoming display, ideally of hand formed var'hama candles. She'll then prepare her a traditional breakfast & go through several days of time honored rituals & challenges to prove her worthiness for the house.


And then once they get home...

Family is of utmost importance to klingons. Mating rituals have become a very big deal for them. klingon intimacy can sometimes be difficult for outsiders to understand, or in some cases, survive. a klingon mating ritual usually begins with one partner making some rather aggressive overture to the other party. The instigating party will bite their intended to begin mating.

I think the 2 guys on the right would look better with chaps on.

There should be forced sterilization of trekkies. We don't need these people reproducing...

Since when did sweatpants become part of the Klingon "wardrobe"? Maybe it's formal geek wear?

Hey I'm new to this interweb thing and I'm impatient. So I hit the post button twice, oops.

My brand of geek talk however, is English (with an H).

Ha, Ha! Hoist on your own Picard, Alex! (And how geeky was that, pirate talk and a Star Trek reference! Make it so, matey! Arrrrr. Hey, that's what I'd like to see, a whole ST episode done in pirate talk. Or am I just really, really hung over. Damn, I'm verbose today.)

BMX3: good one and sadly, all too true. I'm just surprised they didn't hold the wedding on Ricki Lake's show, or Jerry Springer. No wait, that's when they break up because the groom slept with the bride's mother, grandmother and three sisters. My mistake.

I guess Worf had a previous engagement. Can't blame him.

A white wedding dress on the bride? Okay, how many times have you seen a klingon wearing white fluffy things? And they call themselves Star Trek fans...
