We also ran across Klingons, Storm Troopers and Faries, the Local Neo LRP, the local World of Darkness LRP and of curse the Game and dealers rooms.

Although a local chapter of KAG (Klingon Assualt Group) set up quite a display of Klingon collectables from the Star Trek Universe, I never did spot a live Klingon. Either they all got arrested at the party the night before or the were on covert operations.
