Holy Rings of Betazed!! They have done it again. DST3 has pulled off an amazing lineup for this Octobers convention…
Where to even start. Ok, for us, we like the massive TNG presence all bar Mon Capitaine and Wheaton. We will have you Will Wheaton…one day! These guys know how to bring fun to a convention, if you weren’t able to get to DSTG/Frankfurt, then you are in for a treat. If you did see them, you know you want to see them again!
Then we got some faces we haven’t seen at any DST events or even in the UK before! Jeri Ryan is a rare treasure to this island but we are super excited to see James Darren and Bruce Greenwood in this lineup. We haven’t seen either of these two before.
William Shatner is Star Trek Royalty, we hope he pairs up with the TNG lot again, he did really well moderating them before. We haven’t seen Nichelle Nicholls in years and are just enthralled by her presence.
We are pleasantly surprised to find that the prices haven’t increased since the first event. The addition of Leonard Nimoy appearing in a Skype chat makes those high-end latinum packages a lot more attractive though!
We’ll be uploading a video with a more comprehensive review soon, so keep a look out…
The big DST is heading home to London for it’s third event! *Data Fist Pump*
There were a few slips along the way which added to the excitement and build up of the announcement. Tim Russ apparently mentioned in a tweet that he would be in London 3 – 5th October and took it down at warp speed. (We can imagine Janeway giving him the glare of doom for doing that).
Then Marina said tweeted that she would be at a DST in October this year whilst replying to a question (but she didn’t remove it because she is fearless!).
The next clue was in an email from DST stating that the announcement would be exclusive on Facebook and Twitter however on some email platforms, the text under the embedded image showed up stating that it was indeed in London. We didn’t see that but the ‘Geordi eyed’ wonder Misty Chance was on it!
Looking back on it, this just made the last 48 hours even more exciting. It wouldn’t surprise us if the convention founders orchestrated this in some clever PR scheme to get us talking about it….. maybe, or maybe some people will be receiving mek’leths in the post?
But you know us, we can’t believe anything until it’s officially announced. And here it is! Our thoughts – Frickin Amazing!! We’re glad the location and date wasn’t released any later and we are glad that it isn’t that far from us (thinking of our own pockets here!). London makes a lot of sense, it’s in the organisers home turf and has great transportation links.
There is one slight problem…..only for Sam though. Sam is due to drop baby Jean-Luc two weeks before! It’ll be ok though?? Right?
It happened!! Little over a month since Destination Star Trek Germany closes, the convention gods have speaketh and (sort of) announced a third Destination Star Trek.
As Major Kira likes to remind us, sometimes they don’t speak to us direct and we have to make our own interpretations.
Well what can we tell from this message?
First thing that is certain, it’s this year. This is a much quicker turn around than the loooong gap between DSTL and DSTG. Remember, no one was even sure if DSTL was a one hit wonder?
Now we’re looking at two conventions in one year!
We have scoured their website for clues. None yet except for a really awesome video of DSTG (we’re in it for about 1.5 seconds – for a Trekkie Girls, that’s almost an eternity!)
Hopefully, if it’s this year, it won’t be too long until more details are announced so we can save up our latinum. There’s also location. First one in London, second one in Germany – will it be another European location? Will they switch between the two? Or somewhere else completely? TELL US!!!!!
But it looks like Destination Star Trek is here to stay. And this is how we feel about that…
