Fan Debates

We were lucky enough to be on the panel for the first fan debate to vote for Destination Star Trek Londons Favourite Movie.
Alongside Marc and Michael from Trek Mate and Raules the Trekologist we were amazed to find a packed out hall! Stage B was full of fans ready to share their opinions on what they feel makes a good Trek Movie. At first we thought it would be an easy battle between Wrath of Khan and First Contact, but what was insightful was how much appreciation fans have for each of the movies, even the odd numbered ones! Some even declared their love for Star Trek 5 but we think that was William Shatner. Speaking of the Captain, we gave a collective shout of KHAAAAAAN that we hope he heard from his signing booth. Could someone ask if he heard us please and let us … Continue Reading ››

Interviews at Destination Star Trek London

We were very lucky to get to interview some of the guests before the official opening. The press pit was crazier than Klingon with Vulcan blood fever but we survived it!
William Shatner was delighted to be at a convention in London, he loves meeting up with his fellow Captains and is good friends with Patrick Stewart. We'd love to listen in on that dinner conversation.
Interviewing Mr Shatner was an incredible opportunity and thanks to media 10 for making this happen.
Anthony Montgomery and Connery Trinneer were very chatty. They were amazed by the support that Trek fans continue to … Continue Reading ››

We have arrived!

We have finally beamed in to Destination Star Trek London, we are currently sat in our comfy bloggers lounge, the 24th century is literally being built around us. Like Picard in ST Nemesis sat in his office whilst the Enterprise is being restored behind him. In fact, it's just like that they are literally building the bridge of the Enterprise bridge! Things to look out for: Klingon Bar..... WOW! We are never leaving! Watch out if you are wearing flammable attire (all of us) and sneaking in tribbles isn't funny. Federation Chill out zone - very modern, sleek and happy - just like the federation! Museum - lots of to see We are currently in the press pit watching the guest arrivals and we were very lucky to interview William Shatner amongst many other Trek Stars Stay tuned for photos, interviews and more.....

DSTL Weekend Highlights

Hopefully you have soaked in all of our wisdom from our  'How To Survive a Star Trek Convention' series and now you are almost ready to attend the real deal.
 
Whether this is your first or forty seventh convention, you still need to plan your days and we hope this will help you.
 
The Timetable has been released and there is something for everyone. We wish we had clones of ourselves so we could do it all. But for us single bodied lifeforms, we have to choose. 
Here is a little guide of what we think are going to be the unmissable events:
TIP: Follow us on Twitter and keep an eye on our homepage for updates. We'll be at Excel early in the morning so will inform you of queue times (Sounds … Continue Reading ››

What The Spock shall I wear?

For us, this week will be like watching Data watching a kettle boil. If we had an internal chronometer, we'd turn it off. If we had a Delorean, we'd be 88mph into Friday.
 
We talk a lot about costuming (or cosplaying for the trendy greeks). But if it's not your thing, don't dispair. There will be lots of people in 'civilians'.
 
However as we have mentioned in some of our previous post such as Trek Fashion Beams Down To London and Colour Blocking Federation Style there are many highstreet stores that are selling garments 'in the style' of Star Trek. So if you want to wear something 'inbetween', these items make good tributes to Trek Style. We're sure Garak would approve. For the Ladies:

TNG and Me

Sci-fi blogs, websites and magazines are a buzz talking about Star Trek The Next Generations 25th Anniversary. As many of our readers know, we grew up on TNG and would like to share our journey with the Next Generation.
By Sam.
I don't remember the first time I watched TNG just the challenge of tricking my parents into letting me. Because I don't remember how old I was when this happened I googled the UK air date and am surprised to find it was 1990.  Once I was tucked in bed I would stay awake and listen really hard to the TV. As soon as I heard the theme music I would jump out of bed, run downstairs and announce my bellyache, bad dream, boogie man or some other made up ailment that meant I had to watch TV and be tended … Continue Reading ››
