Star Trek : Celebrations(2001)
(A book in the Star Trek series)
A non fiction book by Maureen McTigue
We celebrate Christmas, or Easter, or Diwali... What do they celebrate (and how?) on the Klingon homeworld, on Ferenginar, on Bajor, or a dozen other worlds? Find a universe of fun in this exploration of cultural festivals across the galaxy. Ever wonder what to serve at a Klingon Day of Ascension? Just can't remember if you bring a gift to a Rumarie celebration? Can't recall if on Galvin five, a marriage is considered successful only if children are produced within a year or three of the wedding? You know that Damok was on the ocean, but you can't recall just what that means... Have no fear! Finally you too can come prepared to any celebration held anywhere within the Federation. Culled from the latest data resources of every world, this comprehensive and handy guide will let you walk into any celebration with assurance. Clarly laid out are the complex and compelling cultures that are a part of this vast Federation. Plus there is a special section which details the celebrations that have become part of the traditions of Starfleet - from promotion to ship commissioning, from the solemn occasion of the passing of a crew member to the joyous exchange of marriage vows, you can be a part of it all! Over the course of four television shows and nine movies there have been many familiar celebrations on screen from birthdays to funerals. Yet each one has been unique, because they are a part of the Star Trek universe. And as the writers have created new races, so we have seen their holidays and festivals. But never before has there been one place where you can readily discover what to serve on a particular Talaxian holiday or just how important is the Bajoran Gratitude Festival. This book will provide the answer to all those questions so that now you can celebrate any festival you like yourself at home!
