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.

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.

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.

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:

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:

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.

On Friday 8th October 20:00 GMT (UTC+0) We will be here on the Trekkie Girls home page doing our first live video chat!
What will we talk about? We only have a couple of ‘planned’ themes, including some of our readers Shat Up Lines (see video on Treks and The City).
See you this Friday at 20.00. Bring some Romulan Ale!
Sam and Carole launch their new segment ‘Treks and the city’ after requests from Trekkies look to find a special someone. Using Star Trek as their only source of knowledge they suggest ‘Shat Up Lines’ and Klingon mating rituals. Contains mild adult themes. (Not suitable for sexually immature species).
Our new website is finally active
We hope you like our new home. Put your feet up and have some tea, earl grey, hot.
Whilst we are at Destination Star Trek London on the 19th – 21st October, this blog will go LIVE and feed directly into TrekkieGirls.com with interactive features such as;
- Photo sharing
- Video feed
- Games with prizes!
We’ll provide all the news and gossip, trying to blag interviews with our favourite actors and actresses but mostly having a whole load of fun.
Stay tuned for more updates including our latest episode of Trekkie Girls where we give our advice on finding that Special Trekkie in your life.
Horghans on Standy!
