Star Trek London: Clue Two

Thanks to our anonymous Trekkie Friend who spotted this. Showmasters who run the Collectormania events might be involved. 
This post was seen on their forum today, posted shortly after Star Trek London’s announcement:
================================================
Hi everyone, 

Showmasters are always willing to help friends who have exciting projects and this is no exception; this is going to be big and we’re guessing most of the Showmasters team will be there – so make sure you sign up to get to know the full details first. 

We already know what’s going on, yeah, we’re really good friends, and can’t recommend enough that you get signed up – Is London Ready?

Join Starfleet now!

see for yourself on Showmasters Forum.

This fits one of our suggestions that its a big money making project?

That said, they don’t say they are partners or directly involved. Just that they are ‘friends and know what is going on’.
Whilst it says most of the Showmasters team will be there, it doesn’t specify in what capacity.

This evidence adds weight to the hypothesis that this is a convention but it is not conclusive.

Lets look for more clues….

 

Star Trek London: Clue One!

We have a launch date!

Star Trek London are being as secretive as Section 31 with their plans but like all good agents they have disseminated a small piece of information to keep us guessing.
But that’s not going to keep us from looking for more clues! 

Today @StarTrek_London revealed the ‘dates’ of this mystery event….


The popular opinion amongst fans is that its The Experience which is currently touring the United States.
We have noticed that none of our great suggestions are circulating! (See previous post Is London Ready? and What is Star Trek London? )
We would have thought if it were he Experience they would host it for longer. This has to be a convention right? Oh please let this be a convention!
Three days sounds about right? They may have wrapped up filming. Time to get started with viral marketing?

What do you think?

P.S We read in SFX that Section 31 is providing the security for the new Star Trek Movie. Maybe ST Movie and ST London should look at hiring the Obsidian Order.

Is it a Convention? Is it the Experience? What is Star Trek London!?

Me and Sam have always loved to have something to get excited about. Be it the invention of a new cocktail (More Tranya?), a fabulous new uniform or the growing success of our TiTs (Trekkies In Training).

But at the moment the mystery of Star Trek London has us laying awake at night. See our first post announcing and speculating about Star Trek London
Numerous rumours and educated guesses are flying around but my hope is for something that’ll get us truly excited…..

The opening of the first Starfleet academy!!! Instead of overlooking the bay of San Francisco, it can overlook the London skyline. I know it’s crazy but its my hope all the same.

We will be enrolling, will you? What area would you specialise in?

Just swap San Francisco for London and the Golde Gate for Tower Bridge!
 

Starfleet Klingon Banquet

Teressa, Kehlan, Carole, Sam

As we have mentioned in our previous videos, we attended the 4.5th annual Starfleet/Klingon Banquet in Northampton.

This spectacular event was put on by the crew of Starbase 24 and a big thanks has to go to Kehlan for the amount of hard work she puts into these events. 
Since starting the banquets in 2005 over £8500 has been raised for Macmillan Cancer support….damn Trekkies are awesome!

The night was made even more special by two surprise marriage proposals and a few birthdays!

This was the first banquet to be held at the Northampton Park Inn, previous ones were held at the Milton Keynes Holiday Inn but we were very pleased with the new location. Although there was one horrifying moment when they said there was no Champagne in the whole hotel! But it got fixed!

We got to conduct an interview with John Carrigan who was the guest of honour. 
John plays Captain Kargh on the web series Star Trek New Voyages and became an actor after visiting Gene Roddenberry and the Star Trek set.
Honour is what Klingons ‘do it with’ – according to John’s T-Shirt btw.

So anyone who lives near our neck of the planet should pop by next October for bloodwine, Romulan Ale, tribble hunts and Jamaharon!

Get your Batleth out because here is our first interview!…… [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJeWbJJM3LE]

Make it Sew, Part One

Greetings,

As you know, we normally spend our weekend in the Mud Baths of Shiralea VI, or under the twin Suns of Risa but this weekend we ventured north of the Thames and boldly went to Northampton.
For it was that time of year again, the Klingon Starfleet Banquet as hosted by Starbase 24. This was their 4.5th event which they hold to raise money for the cancer charity Macmillan.

What better way could we raise money for charity by dressing up, celebrating Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the future by giving some of our money to help us achieve that vision.

Preparing for this event was no easy task though so we got all Garak-like and took to our sewing machines! Check out our special Make-It-Sew episode of Trekkies Girls.


We will be updating throughout the week with posts and videos about the run-up and the event itself But I’ll leave you with this picture which shows that Sam didn’t go for the yellow spandex number but did find a close colour match for the science skant… Continue reading Make it Sew, Part One
