Category Archives: Destination Star Trek

Destination Star Trek is an officially licensed Star Trek Event ran by Media 10 and Massive Events. They have hosted the largest conventions in Europe. The Trekkie Girls have been official bloggers to all four events so far and can be seen in panels or hosting.

The first event in London 2012 boasted all five captains in attendance and was hailed the largest Star Trek Event in attendance.  It always boasts a great lineup pulling in guests that haven’t been seen in the Star Trek convention circuit for year, such as Will Wheaton in 2016.

Over the years the event has grown it’s portfolio of sets, now including The Original Series bridge, The Next Generation Bridge, a Borg Alcove and Klingon Battle Bridge chair.

Considered an ‘event’ rather than a convention it hosts panels, costume contests, parties, a museum and trading stalls.

In 2016 the event smashed it’s own Guinness World Record of ‘The Most People Dressed as a Star Trek Character.

Launched!

Con Crazy!

Here at Trekkie Girls HQ we have been busier than the Borg collective, preparing for Destination Star Trek London that is hurtling towards us at lightspeed. As we mentioned earlier we were privileged to be asked if we would blog live from the event.  We spoke to one of the organisers yesterday and they confirmed the rumour that over 12,000 tickets have been sold!!  Thats 12,000 + Trekkies! Our people, all in one place! If that isn't overwhelming enough, all 20 VIP tickets have been sold! We reckon the Grand Nagus organising this event is throwing his/her latinum in the air. We have it on good authority that the show guide with the timetables will be realised really soon and merchandise will be available on www.startreklondon.com before the event. We are feeling pretty broke having spent all our pennies on … Continue Reading ››

Trekkie Girls ep 23 & 24 – Still Surviving Conventions and Supplementary

This week is the 1st anniversary of Trekkie Girls!  We had so much to say we had to make two episodes to share with you; Our forth instalment from the 'How to survive a Star Trek Convention'. Announcements on our new website, our excitement to hear that Brent Spiner is coming to London! And that we are honoured to be official bloggers at Destination Star Trek London this October. So come along and see us and our friends at Trek Mate and Trek News and Views!
 

Is DSTL ready?

Remember earlier this year, trekkies across the land and far away got very excited when this webpage appeared overnight.... We got speculating right away with some rather grandiose ideas. Over time Destination Star Trek London (as it is now known) has slowly teased us with news on what is bound to be the most epic convention the Star Trek franchise has ever seen. But we haven't forgotten how much the organisers have enjoyed teasing us, drip-feeding us information whilst keeping us hungry for more. Troi says turnaround is fair play......
 

Guest Wish List DSTL

We wanted to bring you a post ahead of tomorrows Destination Star Trek London's guest announcements. (very excited about the competitions and announcements!)  The cast, the actors who play the characters are the focal point at conventions. The most memorable events we have been to, were organised with as much exposure to the stars as possible. On a Starship, the bridge crew wouldn't get anything done if it weren't for the redshirts, the dilithium miners and ships counsellor. That example doesn't quite parallel Star Trek in terms of Actors v Production crew as we wouldn't want to devalue their role. Lets say that the production crew are like the Admirals and Academy teachers. They set the mission and often get accused of being baddies! The writers, producers and know-it-alls are often bypassed at conventions yet they can bring so much.  Fans want to see the … Continue Reading ››

We wanted to share some news about Destination Star Trek London.

 Ubdegrove from Media 10, the events company that is organising DSTL. We were unable to make the call as we were reporting from Peterborough but we sent Colin a list of questions in advanced and along with and Wayne from the TrekMate Podcast, they grilled Jill for information.
  The interview can be found via Trek.FM or iTunes but it comes with a health warning. You will get VERY excited!!! Don’t drink too many liquids whilst listening. You … Continue Reading ››

How to Survive a Star Trek Convention. Part One

With UK Star Trek forums buzzing with chatter about the Destination Star Trek London event in October, we are putting together a collection of blog posts and vBlogs on  ‘How to Survive a Star Trek Convention’. In the first part of our 'How to Survive a Star Trek Convention' we look at the ticket prices and how to spend your money wisely. Please also see our previous post for ticket price information: Star Trek London Revealed

Star Trek London Revealed!

Six Months, Five Captains, One Destination equals Thousands of excited Trekkies! Today was the big reveal. We feel like we have died and gone to Sto Vor Kor
www.startreklondon.com William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula are all attending this incredible event.  From what we can see this is more than your average convention. There will be a bridge set for photos, original sets, props and stunt displays!? It promises to be interactive and more focused around the fans.  We thought that the event would be focused around the movie and are gratefully wrong, as this will have something for every fan.  Reason we love this event already: It has something for everyone. Not all Trekkies want the … Continue Reading ››
