Academy
800*600




Welcome Warriors (and mundanes) to the IKV Melota Academy Page.  
With pride we have offered a website with practical* Academy Pages and Video Downloads pages with over a gig of klingon video content presented WITHOUT advertisement, popups or popunders. period.
           *No imaginary ship schematics. No imaginary history of the past or future. This is stuff that you can use today for your person or your Ship.


You will find useful information on HOW TO do many of the things that we assume are regular processes for our ship.
You will find information on HOW TO run a Batleth Practice, HOW TO run a Batleth Tournament, HOW TO run a ship as a business, as well as various other subjects.

This page is always under construction as new items are created or acquired. The "Right Click / Save As save as" link will work first. This will allow Warriors to access information that is not yet a web page.

The web pages can be viewed normally. However, if you should want a copy, RIGHT click and SAVE AS local to your system.
You MUST RIGHT click and SAVE AS all movies local to YOUR system. The files won't run from mine.

Use wisely.

The IKV Melota is a non-profit organization supporting Mr. Roddenberry's vision of the future. We find it very distressing that Viacom and Paramount do not share his visions. We recognize all trademarks and copyrights as belonging to their owners and hope that the owners have sense enough to realize that we fans pay the bills. There is no need outside of testosterone and rectal attitudes to pursue fan sites.

Given that this is not a commercial venture, as webmaster, I partake of the KISS principle and shall have a very simple site. Simplicity is beauty, like the curve of the Ba'Leth.
