Star Trek Magazine – DSTL report

We couldn’t feel more honoured if we we won a bloodwine drinking competition against a Dahar master, but here we are in The Official Star Trek Magazine.

Along side our mates from Trek Mate, this edition provides an indepth account of Destination Star Trek London and part of that included speaking to the ‘official bloggers’ – that’s us!

The article also provides a good look at the ‘behind the scenes’ of the event. This makes facinating reading whether or not you attended.

It was a special privilege to speak to Star Trek Magazine’s editor Christopher Cooper, as we have been reading the magazine since its inception.

Inside Out – The future of transport

There were a lot more people attending than on Friday nights Klingon Monster Ball and much more of a celebratory feel. Audiences sat mesmerised at his music. We’re not entirely sure what genre it falls under but we like it.

Five Captains

To conclude the first day at DSTL we were treated to the Five Captains opening ceremony with Scott Bakula, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks, Patrick Stewart and William Shatner.

The hall was packed out with eager fans ready to see their Captains but we were treated to a line up of all the guest stars. Including JG Hetzler and Robert O’Reily dressed up as Martok and Gowron. Their makeup was spot on, we got chills down our puny human spines when faced with the Chancellor and General themselves.
