The Vulcan Hello + Battle at the Binary Stars Review

Whilst we are a bit late posting it (seriously this is why we don't podcast!) we were quick to meet up and discuss our thoughts on the first two episodes of Star Trek Discovery. In short, we were blown away! The characters, the visuals, the story, the very concept that STAR TREK IS BACK!! There was too much to talk about in the brief time we had, but here's our initial thoughts. https://youtu.be/JIo1dBjJtc4  

Fedcon Day 2 overview Pt1

    The Trekkie Girls are at Fedcon for a second day, attending talks, visiting dealer stands and getting merry with fellow trekkies! See our first impressions here 
LeVar Burton

Normally at events we're screaming at the alarm clock at 6 am but Fedcon is chill! After a nice lay in we head to the LeVar Burton talk. All Trekkie have one thing on their mind at the moment - Star Trek Discovery and a lot of questions relate to it. LeVar was very open to working on the series.

After listening to LeVar speak for a while he seemed to remind us more and more of Geordi La Forge. He has that same calming sensitivity, intellect and optimism. So Sam decided to ask him he felt he had the closest personality to his character out of all the TNG cast. LeVar agreed although also felt Patrick Stewart was close with Picard and quipped "Patrick could be grumpy … Continue Reading ››

SF BALL 23 – Review, Gates McFadden, Patti Yasutake and Larry Nemecek Interviews

This year we were delighted to experience a bit more of what the SF Ball has to offer. Having previously only been able to attend for a day, new ticket options meant we were able to experience the much talked about Saturday night cabaret. sfballtransporter It also allowed us to immerse ourselves in a different type of convention. We are admittedly more accustom to large scale events and some purely fan led events. We feel the SF Ball sits in it's own special category. As the Borg would say "It is unique". The organisers are clearly fans, of that, there is no doubt. But there is a professionalism and reputation (from both customers and the talent) which has made this event last for over two decades. There's a passion for the event's success, it's value and for the charity it seeks to raise money for - The Teenage Cancer … Continue Reading ››

Review – Lovarzi Official licensed products

If you're looking for Christmas gifts for a Trekkie than take a look at these winter wonders from Lovarzi. As we state in our vblog review, we are cautious when people ask us to review their products - mostly because we don't want to be in the awkward position of having to saying anything negative should we believe the product be worthy of disposable by a garbage scow! Fortunately we were relieved to discover that the Umbrella's and Scarf's on offer from Lovarzi were good quality so we were happy to give them an honest review. Available to buy direct from Lovarzi whilst stock lasts ... Perfect for this British weather!

The Trekkie Girls discuss Star Trek news from the week including Destinations Star Trek's announcement that Wil Wheaton will be attending their convention, the (now verified) fake Star Trek New Series poster and news that Star Trek Beyond had been reshooting scenes.

Trekkie Girls Ep – A Roddenberry at the Helm

The announcements regarding the New Star Trek Series are beginning to read like a Trekkies dream team from an internet forum. Next they'll be telling us they've signed up William Shatner and Patrick Stewart. They'll be no complaints here! We can't help but fan girl over the latest news that Eugene 'Rod' Roddenberry has been named Executive Producer. Check out our reaction here: The series now boasts five executive producers, in addition to Rod there's also Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Trevor Roth and Bryan Fuller. It's like they want us to like it! Then of course there's the news that Nicholas Meyer has joined the series on the writing staff. Known for directing (and co-writing, uncredited) Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, co-writing Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and co-writing and directing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. So we have a good mixture of producers and writers that cover all aspects of the Star Trek Universe. From Meyer who worked … Continue Reading ››
