Destination Star Trek Europe

ITS HAPPENING!Destination Star Trek Europe!  Everything we know is contained in this picture below which we stole from the www.destinationstartrek.com landing page

 
Now as you know, we have been arse-kissing friends with convention founders at DST since its  inception in 2012 so we intend to use our ‘special relationship’ to find out as much as we can and keep you up-to-date. You’ll notice we got this post out rather quick, we did get like, a whole hours notice! We are humble Vorta!

Now to wait until next Tuesday when the big reveal happens. We wants names and location here!

The best bit about this teaser is it gives away enough to start planning. We know what weekend to keep clear and its far enough to start planning and (more importantly) start saving!

SF Ball Southampton -New Lineup

With just under two weeks to go until the hotly anticipated SF Ball at the Grand Harbour hotel Southampton, some changes have been made to the lineup. We were starting to get slightly optimistic that Jonathan Frakes might actually attend but it wasn’t to be. Instead the hilarious and gorgeous Dominic Keating and Conner Trinneer from Star Trek Enterprise have stepped up to add to this Trektastic lineup that also includes Casey Biggs and Vaughn Armstrong.

Casey Biggs has spoken to organisers at SFB towers and said;

“We are very excited to be able to attend and perform for everyone at the Ball this year. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is still so strong in the minds of Star Trek fans that it’s always rewarding to be able to meet and chat about the magical world of Star Trek.”

Casey Biggs will be attending the entire weekend as well as performing as part of a special Star Trek cabaret.

 

Not only does the SF Ball offer the usual talks, autographs and photoshoots but there are workshops, an exhibition hall, models, merchandise, costumes and not to mention the wonderful Star Trek sets by the USS Riker’s Beard. All of this is done in the pursuit to raise as much funding towards the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Tickets are selling fast but can be booked online. For more info, tickets and itinerary check out the SFB Events website.

See you there!

 

Happy New Year and the big 5-0!

We wish you a Trektastic 2016 and what a year we have ahead of us. It’s astonishing to think this TV and movie series has gripped our planets attention for half a century. It makes us feel so young!

We were going to write up a review about 2015 but like our spandex loving crewmates, we can’t help but look forward into the future.

Instead, here is what we have planned and our looking forward to in 2016.

SF Ball. 5th – 7th February. Grand Harbour Hotel, SouthamptonScreen Shot 2016-01-01 at 18.56.55.png

Trek guests include Jonathan Frakes, Vaughn Armstrong and  Casey ‘For Cardassia’ Biggs. If you haven’t already it worked it out…. That means the Enterprise Blues Band will also be performing! (Wonder if Frakes can actually play the Trombone?)

Star Trek Beyond – 22nd July

Like we did before with Star Trek Into Darkness we’ll be following all developments leading up to the release of the movie… and Beyond! *groans*. But we don’t like to see or spread leaks, so just official stuff and own opinions from us!

London Film and Comic Con 29th – 31st July. Olympia, London

Screen Shot 2016-01-01 at 19.03.45.png

The biggest show in town….and the Country! These have been getting seriously star studded lately and we want to see how Showmasters are going to top last years, if at all possible. No Trek guests have been announced but so close to the release of Beyond means it will be great to meet up with our fellow Trekkies and discuss every element of the film.

The Official Star Trek Convention 3rd – 7th August. Rio All Suites Hotel, Las Vegas

Screen Shot 2016-01-01 at 19.23.17.png

This one makes us squeal like a Tribble!! Hotels are booked and first contact has been made with organisers. We haven’t been to the famous Vegas con since it was at the Hilton. Reporting live from STLV50 is set to be one of our biggest highlights.

Throughout the year StarTrek.com are going to drip feed us information and we’re going to beg for more!! Remember, we’re not a news site but we love snooping around, asking questions and speculating.

What else??

  • We are upping our game this year with a plan to bring monthly live episodes via Periscope as well as our normal Trekkie Girls episodes on YouTube.
  • We’ll also be watching Destination Star Trek like a hawk. If they make any sound regarding the possibility of another event in the UK or Europe, we’ll be all over it like Kirk and a green girl! Remember our clues we posted last year hinting they might be back??
