We have landed! DSTG is a bit like a starship without any families at the moment and they’re still attaching the warp nacelles but soon it will be breaking with fans! We couldn’t wait though and snuck in to give you this preview.

Good bye England we’re off to DSTG in Frankfurt. We have our bags packed solid with costumes, wigs, comm badges. We can’t even fit in a change of clothes for the way home!
As usual we’ll be tweeting all the happenings throughout the three day event. We’re also going to sneak in early tomorrow morning and give you a sneak preview of the event! (Because waiting a few hours is unacceptable!).
We’ll be hosting a number of events over the weekend so please add us to your timetable. Here’s what we’re planning (times subject to random changes!)
Friday 21st :
15.45 – 16.15 Stage B
Welcome to DSTG.
Drop in and say Hi, get to meet other trekkies. We share some hints and tips to surviving a convention with a few anecdotes of our own. There will also be a question and answer session with one of the convention founders. (When did we become Vorta!?)
17:15 – 17:45
Star Trek Trivia Challenge. We got questions! Pub quiz style, there’s multiple choice, guess the episode, name the character and sudden death rounds for tie breakers!
If you’re new to the Trek world we have a quiz for Trekkies In Training!
We’ll also have prizes…PRIZES!!
15:00 – 15:30 Stage B
Slight change to the timetabled version on the Destination Star Trek website. We’ll be hosting the COSTUME SHOW! Here’s your chance to show off your cosplaying skills. We’ll be dressed up too but we’d love to hear about your costume, why you picked it, how you made it etc.
12:00 – 12:45 Stage B
Women of Star Trek
Here we get a little more philosophical and have an open discussion about the role of women in Star Trek.
See you all shortly! And if you’re not going (we hear Scotty playing bagpipes when we think you), please follow our antics anyway, we’ll try to help you feel as if you were there.
With just over a week to go we discuss the hotly anticipated Destination Star Trek Germany event. What we can’t wait to see and what not to miss. See you in Frankfurt!
We’re very excited about tonight’s DSTG Twitter and Facebook takeover.
He was saving the galaxy before we were in diapers! He is the one-and-only and Destination Star Trek Germany headline guest WILLIAM SHATNER!!!
Gosh we love him and we can’t wait to see him in Frankfurt next week. Until then we’re going to dedicate a whole takeover session to how awesome he is. See you tonight at 8pm GMT/9pm CET.
Been debating wether to put this up but after watching TNG Reunion I keep thinking how much Kate Middleton resembles K’Ehleyr. This is meant with every respect to both of them because I think they are both beautiful women. Maybe it’s the long glossy locks? Do you have any Trek character/ celebrity lookalikes to suggest?
