The 2nd Annual Stormtroopers vs. Klingons blood drive will take place during the day on New Year’s Eve (12/31/2011) at the Portland Donor Center, located at 3131 North Vancouver Avenue, and will run from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Mingle and take photos with members of Star Wars and Star Trek costuming organizations “The 501st Legion: Vader’s Fist” and “Starfleet International.” Watch the films, listen to the soundtracks and defend your galaxy’s honor!
All presenting donors will have the opportunity to cast their ballot for either the Stormtroopers or the Klingons, and the side which receives the most votes will walk away with the second annual Galaxy Drive trophy.
I was there last year. I voted for the Klingon Empire. I also saw a mom who'd donated finding out that she'd voted for the Galactic Empire when she'd meant to vote for the Klingons, but had read "Empire" and had thought "Klingon Empire." So my hunch is that the stormtroopers' win last year waaaaaaaaaasn't really earned. (Do NOT ask Worf's feelings on the subject.)
Should I do this again? Hmm...it would be the honorable thing to do...
