One week until our favourite every-year-or-two event; Destination Star Trek. The schedule has been released and so begins the mission briefing!
As you might see we have a couple of panels ourselves. Which we have began frantically preparing for! Please remember the details can change at anytime!
Cosplay panel – We have been asked to host a panel on cosplaying and we are delighted to do! We don’t claim to be expert cosplayers ourselves but we do dress up at conventions and are fascinated by the phenomenon.
We have invited some of our friends as panelists. Misty Chance, the Trekkie Drag queen and Cosplay legend. If you have been to any of the DST’s or the recent Star Trek Las Vegas convention you would have seen her sporting one of her many pro costumes including the Intendant, Seven of Nine, T’Pol, Queen Aracnia and Lwaxana Troi. Looking at her twitter feed she has a real treat for us next weekend!

Lets hope she gets a kiss from William Shatner!
Trek Talks: A Pop Culture Icon
In this panel we will be looking at the long standing relationship between Star Trek and cosplaying, the chance to ask questions and share your knowledge. And how Star Trek should be taking cosplay serious as it ventures forth with its new series.
The panel is right after the World Record attempt (yep that’s happening!) so hopefully we’ll have plenty of people in the mood for dress up!
When: 16.50 Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th 09.40
Where: Excelsior Stage.
Trek Talks – a Pop Culture Icon
We have been asked by DST to host a panels focusing on the pop icon status Star Trek has received and the effect it has had on our culture.
From TV references to techno local advances, Star Trek has permeated all sectors of modern culture. Long may it live!
When:14.55 Sunday 9th
Where: Excelsior stage
Other than panels we’ll be live reporting, blogging and periscoping from the show… and fan-girling over Wil Wheaton obviously! If you see us please say hi!
