3-6 - The [un]Convention

* Panel Discussion - "Am I a Borg?" moderated by Misha Glouberman
Most "evil technology becoming intelligent and taking over" sci fi
scenarios are about robots or computers turning evil and attacking
their masters (2001, The Matrix, Terminator, Battlestar Galactica,
etc.). The Borg are different in that the technology and the master
have fused; they've merged through a method that seems more akin to
evolution than attack. But how did they get there? Are we on the path
to becoming the Borg?

* Panel Discussion - "Is Commander Chakotay Osama Bin Laden?" moderated by Guinan
How much are the Maquis like Al Qaeda? Do terrorists receive
consistent treatment by the Federation? And does the future respond to
terrorism any better than we do today?

* Demonstration of Klingon Ceremonies and Rituals by the Klingon Assault Group
* Bat'Leth demonstration by last year's Bat'Leth tournament champion, Ranbir Gundu
