Confessions of a temporally displaced women

Have you ever watched one of those Jerry Springer episodes with the Man who felt he should have been born a Women?…I know exactly how they feel. Except I have no confusion over my gender….but with Time. I DO NOT belong in this time line – its always felt wrong to me!

Most people put it down to watching too much Star Trek – they are right. Some say I am ‘from another planet’ ….thats not it though. And I’ve given it a lot of thought. As I look at all the aliens in ST, I’m not a Raktijino drinking warrior like a Klingon, I’m too much of a lefty to be a Ferengi and I don’t have the bone structure for a Cardassian, but those self-righteous know-it-all humans…yeah thats who I am.

I first had these inclinations as a young child. I recently came across an old school book which went into some detail about ‘what I want to be when I grow up’. Obviously I was going to enlist in Starfleet but I was unsure which area to specialize in. I was naturally drawn to command….as Kirk says you don’t give up being Captain of the Enterprise. But ships counselor looked pretty appealing too less hours, better office and you’re still a bridge officer!
– The note from my teacher suggests “have you thought about becoming a vet?” (what the Spock!?)

Whilst technology is having a growth spurt (thanks to Henry Starling and Capt Brannigan) I worry that Humans aren’t keeping up in terms of their personal development – both individually and as a collective species. I am shocked that some people harbour attitudes which would have been considered hateful by Victorian standards.

There are lots of sets backs to living in the wrong time line…..planes….injections….microsoft…..More on that later though……

Starfleet Klingon Banquet + John Carrigan Interview

Teressa, Kehlan, Carole, Sam

As we have mentioned in our previous videos, we attended the 4.5th annual Starfleet/Klingon Banquet in Northampton.

This spectacular event was put on by the crew of Starbase 24 and a big thanks has to go to Kehlan for the amount of hard work she puts into these events. 
Since starting the banquets in 2005 over £8500 has been raised for Macmillan Cancer support….damn Trekkies are awesome!

The night was made even more special by two surprise marriage proposals and a few birthdays!

This was the first banquet to be held at the Northampton Park Inn, previous ones were held at the Milton Keynes Holiday Inn but we were very pleased with the new location. Although there was one horrifying moment when they said there was no Champagne in the whole hotel! But it got fixed!

We got to conduct an interview with John Carrigan who was the guest of honour. 
John plays Captain Kargh on the web series Star Trek New Voyages and became an actor after visiting Gene Roddenberry and the Star Trek set.
Honour is what Klingons ‘do it with’ – according to John’s T-Shirt btw.

So anyone who lives near our neck of the planet should pop by next October for bloodwine, Romulan Ale, tribble hunts and Jamaharon!

Get your Batleth out because here is our first interview!……
