DST3 day 3

So Day 3 the final frontier

So the day after the night before - the night before being a Our Man Bashir inspired party, everyone was dressed in their trekkie finest and enjoying the music of both James Darren and Tim Russ who put on stellar shows. It again was a messy night continuing into the wee hours, thank you to Larry Nemecek who put up with our company for far too much of the evening.

DST3 Day 2 Overview

DST3 day 2
Aka its not easy being green With a 7am make up call and maybe 4 hours sleep...
Oh my god I forgot to mention the Friday night party on my day 1 overview. So the amazing Risa themed party with the Enterprise Blues Band playing, made for a  great night. We partied with the Engage Podcast and danced the night away. The band stayed to sign CDs and join in the fun, Steve Rankin even stage driving at one point the success of which must be partly credited to the OriginalTiT - Sarah. The atmosphere was amazing and even after the bar closed the party continued...hence why for most of the morning of day 2 we were a trekkie girl down.  Naughty Tress
Sorry back to day 2 After the painting and poking by … Continue Reading ››

Thank you
Destination star trek 3 over view Day 1
It started with us sneaking in, arriving a little early and making ourselves at home, obviously meaning we headed straight for the bridge which was no less as impressive as it had been in Germany. Knowing that soon not only would the TNG crew but the Shat himself  be sat in those very seats we were excited to say the least.
But there was little time to explore more before we had to … Continue Reading ››

Trekkie Girls the Next Generation

Looking on like proud captains me and Sam are very excited to see our fledgling TiTs (Trekkies In Training) take to the centre stage this weekend. Me and Sam have tested them to their limits ( we made them watch the Star Trek the Motion Picture), have taught them how to survive a convention (though we are throwing them in the deep end this Saturday - lookout for the photos ) we have followed them on their journey to TrekkieGirls and we couldn't be prouder. I will be honoured to have them on stage with me this Friday 1630 for their first public appearance as we host a TiT quiz at Destination Star trek's Excelsior stage. Hopefully see you there So join us if you're attending or follow us on @TrekkieGirls, @TheOriginalTiT, @snoweycampbelle for all the latest Destination Star Trek gossip image

The Good, The Bad, The Benedict

By Carole
He's hot, witty, smart, an amazing dresser and oh so well spoken, he'll steal your word (and l should I know it happened to me) buts that's not what has me excited about his role as the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness - I won't lie it is part of it 😉
"Did I lock the shuttle bay door when I left this morning?"
I adore the '09 JJ film but the one thing that I thought fell a little short was that the antagonist, the adorable Eric Bana, just wasn't intimidating, I never felt that Kirk and crew were in true peril. But from what I've seen and heard so far (and its beginning like I've seen the whole film now) Benedict aka John Harrison … Continue Reading ››
