Stardate 041994.20~ Remember the 90's and all the How to Host a Murder games? Well, after being married for 4 years but still no kiddos, Dave and I decided to host a Star Trek Mystery Game. We were living in Manhattan, Kansas at the time and invited a few of our Army buds who were also Sci-fi fans. This is what we sent out:
Along with this invite was a description of the recepient's character as well as a Top Secret communique regarding his/her role...whether he/she is the bad guy and why. Also this Priority Communication From Starfleet Command:
We had such a blast.
I was Guinan, hostess of the Ten-Forward Lounge and over 5 centuries old. Obviously I was an alien (from a distant planet of Listener life-forms). But I looked human. Although not normally a part of an Away Team, my culture had very specific legends about the Orb of Knowledge, and I was invited by Commander Riker to join the mission to help authenticate the discovery.
Dave was Commander William Riker. As First Officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise, he was considered one of Starfleet's rising young stars. He usually commanded the Away Teams.
We made some fun alien looking snacks like miniature quiches and uh, grapes...well, we tried. The drinks were ginger ale with various food colorings.
And, yes, I made both of our outfits. Aren't I the talented one? And oh! So modest!
I painted the observation panals with a red planet, Delphi 4, in view. (I put my Art Degree to good use finally!)
I wish I took pictures of the characters that were involved, besides us, but they were Lieutenant Commander Data, Dr. Beverley Crusher, Counselor Deanna Troi (I decided not to be her because I did not have the--hmmmm--shape that she did. I did not desire wearing a skin tight suit...and I am just not as sweet. Heh.), Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge, Lieutenant Worf, and Ensign Ro Laren.
If you are interested, google "How to Host A Murder Mystery Star Trek". I found oodles of sites and places to order it from.
Star Trek was not the only Murder Mystery party we had. The other one was a 50's high school reunion.
Here are the pictures from that one...enjoy!
