Tonight we hosted the Destination Star Trek Germany Twitter and Facebook takeover and decided to do something a little different. We played a trivia game based on the newly announced full guest line-up.
In case you’re wondering here are the answers.
First person to answer correctly can have the gift of feeling as smug as a Vulcan winning a game baseball. (that’s a thing!)
Ok, this character’s parents were both Starfleet officers?
– Geordi La Forge / LeVar Burton
Who’s last ever words were “Great news. Wait till they here-”
– Trip Tucker
Who (from the #DSTG lineup) have had another actor play the same character?
We counted five, depending on how pedantic you wish to get! James Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Borg Queen, Saavik and Lal
This actor has appeared in TNG, DS9, VOY and Ent playing different characters.
– Vaughn Armstrong
And we loooove constructive criticism so if you think we got anything wrong, please impress us with your Treksual prowess.
At last the full guest line up for Destination Star Trek Germany has been revealed and this is what it looks like:
- William Shatner
- Karl Urban
- Brent Spiner
- Michael Dorn
- LeVar Burton
- Marina Sirtis
- Gates McFadden
- Tim Russ
- Armin Shimerman
- Rene Auberjonois
- Alice Krige
- Connor Trinneer
- Jeffrey Combs
- Dominic Keating
- Suzie Plakson
- Carolyn Seymour
- Hallie Todd
- Gwynyth Walsh
- Robin Curtis
- Ira Steven Behr
- Casey Biggs
- Vaughn Armstrong
- Steve Rankin
- Kitty Swink
Join us tonight 8pm GMT/ 9pm CET on Twitter and Facebook where we will take over the DSTG accounts to discuss this exciting news.
With this lineup we can see that it’s a smaller event than London with its five Captains but smaller doesn’t mean less. The guests included are like cuddly warm Tribbles, you can’t resist them (or give them food). Also, 24 purely Star Trek guests is great deal more than we normally have in Europe.
They are the sort of guest who always take time with the fans and deliver the bests panels. This is what makes a convention enjoyable and one to remember.
If you get a chance to see them deliver a talk the ones we recommend are:
- All of the TNG – look out for the talk hosted by William Shatner, not to be missed!!
- Connor Tinneer and Dominic Keating, often talk together and make hilarious comparisons between Enterprise and the other franchises.
- Tim Russ – Very funny man, nothing like Tuvok!Jeffrey Coombs – Talented, witty with a massive insight to Trek having played every single character ever.
- Casey Biggs – Sam’s secret crush. DAMAR!!!
- Ira Steven Behr – A lot of the questions asked to the actors are often related to story or production of the series. As Executive Producer and writer on DS9 and TNG episodes, some of those fan questions will be well placed with Ira. A unique and insightful discussion is guaranteed but can often be overlooked by attendees.
This YouTube video is so spot on. We can all relate to this! Qa’pla to NerdsInTheir30’s for making this!
The holodeck doors open and the Trekkie Girls get kicked out, back to reality.
Happy New Year to all our followers. We have had a busy few weeks so wanted to give you a little update on our goings on.
We have resumed our weekly takeovers of the Destination Star Trek Germany Twitter and Facebook accounts every Wednesday at 8pm GMT / 9pm CET. On last nights takeover we were able to reveal the poll results for the Saturday night party theme for DSTG. Ladies of Star Trek won the fan vote and we had a great evening talking about some of Star Trek’s leading ladies. This will be an interesting one to see develop but are looking forward to seeing what attendees choose to wear. Time to get creative!
Is anyone else thinking of that scene from Little Britain? We can hold up our Tricorders and say “We are Laaaaaydies”.
Lunch with LeVar?
Today is the last day for our USA dwelling friends to enter a contest to meet and have lunch with LeVar Burton! We-Care.com help raise money for AIDS Research and LeVar is a great ambassador for the cause. But sign up quick, it ends tonight at 7pm EST
Say Hello to our little friend…
Carole found this little fellow at work named Arthur Dent. He had a label attached to him saying that he wanted to go on adventure. He had a URL and code attached so we looked it up and he has a list of challenges he needs to fulfil. We were able to help him out with one of the easiest ones. He wanted a nice cup of tea. Who else better for Arthur Dent to share a cup of tea with than Captain Picard (Earl Grey, naturally).
He needs to visit the Fjords of Norway and see Dolphins which we thought were a bit of a strain on our budget for a stuffed toy so instead we took him on our New Years trip to Brussels and Amsterdam. Oh the things he has seen that weren’t on that challenge list! We have left him in the Hard Rock Cafe Amsterdam in the hope that an intrepid voyager will help him with the rest of his travels. LLAP little man!
