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 ››

Federation News Service

There are so many great Trek related stories circulating the Federation News Network this week, we thought we'd take a minute to gather them altogether for you. 4th April If you follow Nichelle Nichols on twitter. Your jaw would have dropped when she uploaded this picture of her with a fan: Obama has fan-boy wrote all over him! Whatever their beliefs, it is always reassuring to know that a politician likes Star Trek. Would you vote for someone who hadn't watched Star Trek?  Oh, and Nichelle, Love the necklace! Source: @RealNichelle 5th April  We all celebrated First Contact by drinking Tequila Troi-style whilst listening to Cochrane's favourite tunes and dancing like our Dads, right? Larry Nemecek (The Universe's renowned Star Trek Authority himself) engaged in some seriously Jake Sisko style journalism and reported an amazing … Continue Reading ››

Happy Easter – from Qo’noS

Like most Trekkies, everything we learnt, we learnt from Star Trek. So we have always been baffled by Easter, as there is no reference to it in Trek. But we have got to the bottom of it. It is about an extraordinary man whom upon his death thousands of years ago promised he would return. His teachings are still practiced today. That man was..... Kahless The Unforgettable.
Kahless foretold his resurrection in The Story of The Promise: 
When Kahless united the people and gave them the laws of honor, he saw that his work was done. So one night he gathered his belongings and went to the edge of the city to say good-bye. The people wept, they did not want him to go. And Kahless said, "You are Klingons. You need no one but yourselves. I … Continue Reading ››

Colour Blocking, Federation Style

We just had to share this with you. Whilst spending our newly paid Latinum, look what we found at Karen Millen: KM2  www.karenmillen.com How fabulously Starfleet! We have noticed that the UK fashion scene is becoming more and more Trek influenced as we reported from London Fashion week where Jasper Conran plagiarised Spocks outfit from The Voyage Home.  We're heading to Karen Millen now with our Comm badges and pips! Not too sure about their shoes, but this pair oozes fabulous Captain with Starfleet colours and a tribute to Qo'noS:
Now the tough choice. Which one do we buy first? Which one do we leave until next months pay check? (not including the Louboutins, to afford them we'd have to commit to horrid acts that would make … Continue Reading ››

Star Trek London: Is this is a Clue!?

Ok we are getting a little obsessed with the Star Trek London mystery. In episode 14 of our vBlog we explain why we think the event is based around the new movie. 
There is a visual clue on the registration website and the avatar on the Twitter Account. That is the new look insignia, native to the JJ movie.

However, take a look at the back ground on @StarTrek_London 's twitter homepage:

It's our good friend the Enterprise -D

Now are we reading too much into this? Does it mean something? 
The Next Generation is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in September 2012 - coincidence? hmmm, … Continue Reading ››

Happy Birthday Marina Sirtis

Marina Sirtis is one of our absolute favourites on the show. The queen of Trek in our humble opinion. So to celebrate Marina's birthday here are some of our favourite Deanna Troi moments: Sam: I felt she got to show all sides of her character in the episode The High Ground. We got to see her as Counsellor, counselling Wesley for emotional support after Beverly was kidnapped. Then the negotiator, supporting Picard in conflict resolution. But I really liked how she sprung into action on the Bridge when Finn beams onto the bridge. Picard throws that awesome punch and Troi takes care of securing the ship and attending to officers. She showed real strength and courage in that episode.
Now Troi has got a lot of unnecessary flack in my opinion, ranging from her hairdo's to headaches. But one I strongly … Continue Reading ››

What’s On: July

Trekkie Girls Log...Supplemental. Boldly continuing our mission to bring to you the top UK Trek events of this year. We present to you:
July 2012
6th - 8th
 
 
Organised by the same group who bring us Collectormania (see June post). This is an all encompassing geek-fest which not only includes the autographs, photo shoots, talks and stalls which we love but it also has Anime, Cosplaying, Card trading and video-gaming zones. We find that fans are much more likely to dress up for this event. It is held the weekend before the International Comic Con in San Diego and the atmosphere and reputation of that event has influenced these London Comic Cons. British geeks all genres are getting braver and bolder. … Continue Reading ››

What’s On: June

In Part two of our What's On posts. We look at UK events with Star Trek Guest Stars.
In June we are going to:
 
June 2012
1st - 3rd
 
We have been to a few of these and they are generally well run, simple affairs. They are predominately a trading arena with lots and lots of stalls. With signing areas, photo ops and guest talks. From the ones we have been to before,  the guest stars are sat in the main hall so we can stare at them and point (honestly, its like a pet shop!). But some guest stars are too precious to be left out like nerd bait for us to chew on so they store them away in secure areas.
