DEEP SPACE 3 — The culinary pleasures of Qo’noS may not immediately come to mind when thinking about exceptional gourmet dining. A fresh addition to Deep Space 3’s promenade promises to revolutionise everyone’s opinions about Klingon food. Wejwa’, the Klingon word for flavour, recently debuted to rave acclaim. The exterior décor is an eye-catching stone façade that leads down to a feasting pit that even Kahless would be proud of. The main dining hall is a splendour of rich, dark mahogany eating tables set against a dark granite motif. The walls are simply ornamented with uniquely Klingon flags and statues of elite warriors, as well as interwoven with candles and smoke elements to accentuate the original Klingon ambience. “We want folks to have a genuine sense of Qo’noS here! Klingon culture is centred on celebration and sharing,” said H’esketh, M’Rak’s daughter and the company’s owner and general manager. “Forget your Starfleet preconceptions of strewn tables and walls splattered with gagh and bloodwine. At Wejwa’, we honour our mothers’ and grandmothers’ cuisine by serving a warriors meal meant to excite all of your senses after a glorious day!” The cuisine appears to be traditional Klingon, with gagh and Targ being mainstays in many meals. The restaurant features many exceptional cuts of targ meat, including the jowl, maw, T-Bone, and rump cut, and every type of gagh is offered as an appetiser or main course. Don’t feel like eating a substantial bowl of live gagh? Customers might choose racht. The popular tren bread, blood pudding, brek chips, and grat root fries are among the side dishes. You can even finish your dinner with Klingon honeyed blood cake! Whether you like Klingon food or are feeling brave one evening, make sure to try an authentic taste of Klingon fare at Wejwa’, available only on Deep Space 3.

SAN FRANCISCO, EARTH – Every year, bright-faced and happy-go-lucky Cadets enter Starfleet with nothing but a dream and a wish in their hearts, eager for learning and to one day step aboard a Starship as a fresh-faced Ensign, and perhaps one day… a Captain. And, like clockwork, every year rumours arise about The Haunting. “Look,” said Cadet Arisa, a second-year medical cadet. “I’m not saying I believe in spirits or whatever, but sometimes at night… Sometimes, like, you hear things.” Cadet Linn, a third-year Bolian science cadet, offered her own explanation for these strange occurrences. “It’s just some other Cadets,” Linn stated, a Bolian of a nervous disposition glancing over her shoulder. “Some of them are loud at night, and they bang on things. Completely unwarranted and, as Spol would say, illogical, but I’m not anyone’s mother here.” However, some like Orion Cadet Try, believe that the spirits are real. “One night,” he related as he stacked PADDS onto a tray, looking back and forth. “I swear I locked my window and door. I’m paranoid, or so says my roommate. But around two in the morning, I wake up and my window and door are open. And there’s a woman. Just, a random woman, her hand reached out to me. I reached back and poof. She was gone. I fell asleep and then I woke up and my door was locked window was open though.” Over the years, several cadets have provided evidence of unusual events. One cadet reported ‘spheres of light’ bouncing in the hallways, while another reported a window opening on its own, The most daunting of these was a faint silhouette of someone within a room that appeared almost translucent. Commander Thomas Jones, a science instructor, expressed frustration over how these reports affect cadet morale. “I’m sure the students love Halloween, but for one year could we not terrorise the newcomers with thoughts of possession and the undead?” More information will be reported as additional details come to light.
