Married In Red

The Klingon wedding was a highly ritualized ceremony, resembling an opera. Klingon warriors beating their drums received the couple as the officiant (usually the Lady of the Great House of the groom) recited the traditional story of the Klingon creation, in which the second Klingon heart was created to be joined with the first and they both rose up against their gods. The Tawi’Yan presented the couple with bat’leths as they did mock battle with each other in representation of the struggle of the two Klingon hearts against one another.

After the couple recited their vows, swearing to unite against all their opponents, the guests attacked them with ceremonial weapons, the ma’Stakas.
