If you have been following the Enterprise D Restoration Project (of course you are) then you have probably already noticed this little gem in their facebook status today:
Note: Possibly ST London!? This could be a mistake or they might have let the Tribbles out the hatch.
By Data’s fully functioning phaser we hope this is a clue that the convention gods founders are plotting us a treat with a second Star Trek London. And if you’re uming and ahhing about whether it will happen, remember that in the Trek universe, even numbers are always better.
Our friends at Trek Mate started this petition to bring back Destination Star Trek London, please sign if you want to bring it back.
What will you be doing to celebrate? We will be at the Leicester Space Centre at: Dawn of The Federation.
All over the world fans are gathering to celebrate the countdown to the moment Zefram Cochrane makes First Contact and thrusts mankind into a new era of peace.
Whilst we look forward to the uniting of fans, the shared optimism of space travel and the general geekness of this event, we are really looking forward to a fun, lighthearted atmosphere. This is a great chance to get costumed up but this ain’t no Vicars and Tarts party, more like Vulcans and Warp field specialists knocking back tequila’s like Troi.
We couldn’t feel more honoured if we we won a bloodwine drinking competition against a Dahar master, but here we are in The Official Star Trek Magazine.
Along side our mates from Trek Mate, this edition provides an indepth account of Destination Star Trek London and part of that included speaking to the ‘official bloggers’ – that’s us! The article also provides a good look at the ‘behind the scenes’ of the event. This makes facinating reading whether or not you attended. It was a special privilege to speak to Star Trek Magazine’s editor Christopher Cooper, as we have been reading the magazine since its inception.
And check out this gooooorgeous pic of her that was included in the Press Release.
**Update 16.1.13** If you want to meet Marina, best be early (10am). We hear she will be in a Trek Themed caravan, meeting fans and signing autographs. We have a mental image of Troi trapped in the Shuttle from Skin of Evil! We also kinda hope the caravan has well endowed Nacelles! If you do go, please send us some pictures and don’t be shy about suiting up Starfleet style!
