Dragon*Con 2002: Fantastic Flights

Karaoke Klingon -- Nobody laughed when the Klingon got up to sing. However, at the end of his rendition of "Baby, I Love You," everyone in the Champions Bar attached to Atlanta's Marriott Marquis Hotel hollered, stamped their feet and applauded wildly. The gleaming bat'leth (the scimitar-shaped honor sword of Star Trek Klingons) he left at the side of the stage had nothing to do with it. The gentleman really could sing, dominating a Friday night set characterized by an unusually high level of talent. Champion's karaoke regulars considered the Aug. 30 evening set that included the romantic Klingon one of the best of the summer. Dragon*Con guests called it the perfect way to open the con.
