We love twittering our thoughts but find they seem to disappear of the edge of the galactic barrier once sent, so we thought we’d include a weekly blog post to our favourite Tweets. Hope you relish them as much as we.
Watching TNG Second Chances. They should have named this one Ménage a Troi instead. You know Will, Tom and Deanna are thinking it.

Starfleet Insignia beams over London as it goes Into Darkness for Earth Hour.
When we started our London4IntoDarkness campaign (to bring the worldwide premiere of STID to London) we bothered loads of important people with our idea. The feedback we got from the likes of Paramount was ‘probably not the worldwide premiere, but Brits will not be disappointed with what we have planned for London’. And like Darmok with his arms wide open, we certainly have not been.
Spreading faster than a a rumour on DS9 is the latest Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer.
We were saddened today to learn that James, a pub landlord and life long Star Trek fan had three handmade Star Trek costumes stolen from his pub, the Coach House Keal Cotes, Lincolnshire.
However, tonight whilst on the phone discussing the incident with James and his wife April, the costumes were returned albeit without the unique badges. The ‘Passport badge’ or ‘UFP medal’ (we have seen it referred to as both) can be seen in The Voyage Home on the federation council members. We hadn’t even noticed them (the blasphemy!) so we believe they are very rare.
Last week I (Sam) was delighted to be invited onto the Trek Mate podcast with host Wayne and special Guest Chris Cooper, editor of Star Trek Magazine. We always have a blast when chatting on Podcasts and especially Trek Mate. As we are video bloggers we try to keep our entries short and sweet – a task that can be almost impossible. The great thing about appearing on a podcast is being able to geek out and chat away, jumping from subject to subject.
If you don’t want to hear any spoilers about the film but want to hear other news from today’s special footage screening in London, this is the post for you.
Our spoiler free video reaction:
12.00 Arrive at BFI IMAX London. We notice two cars outside, an amazing coincidence!?
|Bumper sticker reads – My other car’s a millennium falcon|
We register our attendance and cheekily ask who is here, the nice man from Paramount reassures us that we’ll prefer to be surprised.
|So you think your cinema is safe?|
Last night TrekMovie.com reported on a press screening event in Brazil where 38 minutes of the film were shown. So we suspect our press screening in London today will be somewhat similar.
We want to respect the wishes of all fans, those who want the scoop and all the gory details but also those who appreciate the surprise and anticipation. Therefor, we won’t be tweeting any spoilers, instead we’ll update this page and spoilers can be seen after this jump.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS – 9TH MAY**
Last December you may recall we were invited to a special footage screening of Star Trek Into Darkness. This was the first 9 minutes of the film and included a talk with the Producer Bryan Burk, Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve. It was the highlight of the year.

worldwide premiere for London one more time I’ll tear this city apart!
