Who is Bolom Ts'akab?
I tried to google this person and could not find anything.
The Mayan god of agriculture, the one who controls the rain and thunder. His name means "the leaf-nosed god", and he was portrayed with a leaf in his nose. He is the so-called 'God K'.
AH-BOLOM-TZACAB Also known as AH-BOLON-DZACAB, AH-BOLON-DZ'ACAB, BOLON-TZACAB, GOD-K God of Aristocracy. Also known as God K. K is for Kings. He's the God with the long nose with a leaf sticking out of his nostril. He has something to do with picking the right lineage for the upper crust of the ruling classes. Note the posh double-barrelled surname.
God K is the Schellhas-Zimmermann-Taube designation of a codical Maya deity representing lightning (see fig. 1). In earlier, especially Classic depictions, his main characteristics are a blade or torch running through his forehead, and a serpent for one of his legs (see fig. 2). God K personifies the lightning axe of the rain deity, Chaac, which is also a stereotypical attribute of the king as represented on his steles.
Kukulkan ("Plumed Serpent", "Feathered Serpent") is the name of a Maya snake deity that also serves to designate historical persons. The depiction of the feathered serpent deity is present in other cultures of Mesoamerica. Kukulkan is closely related to the god Q'uq'umatz of the K'iche' Maya and to Quetzalcoatl of the Aztecs. Little is known of the mythology of this pre-Columbian deity.
The godlike being Kukulkan, a creature of immense power, travels the spaceways in a large sleek vessel that is painted red and blue. The ship can project an energy field that showcases a holographic image of Kukulkan, the winged serpent. The interstellar ship is composed entirely of crystalline ceramic, and has a central power source. It also has the ability to generate a globular force field which can absorb energy from ships or their weapons, effectively dampening them and trapping them in place. Inside the ship is a large room that can be used as a holographic environment, as well as another large room that functions as an interplanetary zoo. Kukulkan keeps various alien creatures in the zoo, inside cages that are equipped with holographic environments to keep the beings happy. In 2270 (stardate: 6063.4), the U.S.S. Enterprise encounters Kukulkan's ship, and Captain Kirk and other crew members are transported aboard the feathered serpent vessel.
Do you have any more information as to what the incoming space dude will do when he gets here ?
And your preparations(what are they?) before the imminent arrival should give us an idea as to whether this will be a friendly visit
