Starfleet Klingon Banquet + John Carrigan Interview

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 … Continue Reading ››

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. Continue Reading ››

Talking about Larry’s Pendulum

I'm glad he raised this....ohhh my!  In case you don't know what we're talking about, you really should be reading everything Larry Nemecek has to say about anything by way of Star Trek decree: TrekLand Supplemental This is our take on Larry' question "Is TNG due for a Comeback?" 
Now as we have mentioned we were TNG fans first, born into that time line so grew up watching it. We can now appreciate TOS and love the "Retro" look of the show but we confess to being those viewers who as kids would have scoffed at the MDF sets and Christmas lighting effects.  When talking to our TiT (Trekkie In Training) Sarah, we asked her how she was getting on with watching TNG and she said "yeah … Continue Reading ››

Happy Birthday!

Today TNG turns 24!! (since it debuted) which coming from a pair at the grand old age of 29 it doesn't seem that old. However upon hearing that Enterprise turned 10 years old on the 26th....What The Spock!?  Is there a rip in the space time continuum?? I suppose the difference is that I don't remember TNG starting...its always just existed right!?...like The Original Series or Q? I remember each of the others starting though and hearing that the 'newest' incarnation is now 'old' makes me feel a little more mortal. Enterprise turned out to be an excellent series though, cut waaaaay before her time. Shame on you TV execs (bunch of Ferengi). Once we have assimilated the world into Trekkies we are looking at having an advanced programme … Continue Reading ››

Review by Sam
Carole is a comic reader and I have always felt less of a geek because of it. But its time to change that and I have gone out and bought my first Comic! (by go out - I mean visit the App store and download it!).  Techie stuff:  I went for the iPad download as I don't have a comic book store nearby (for shame) and I prefer magazines etc via digital download, the pictures 'pop' and if you spill your raktajino all over it, well you just make yourself another one and carry on reading. I think there was a lot more they could have done with the media though, I found myself rotating the screen from Landscape to Portrait to make sure I … Continue Reading ››

The Neutral Zone

3 ROMULANS WALK INTO A BAR.....
 
 
 
The first one is Dirty, the second is good for a one night stand and the third will last you allllll night.
Being Trekkie Girls, we had no dates on Friday night so instead decided to hangout in The Neutral Zone and create the perfect Romulan Ale. We have heard of many concoctions but ironically some of the ingrediants for the official version are illegal in the UK! 
There was a difference in opinion over which one was the nicest and which one tasted most like Romulan Ale. We can't remember what's in the first one - probably everything...and that's why we can't remember! The second one is Absolut Citron (that's Vodka, not a make of car), Grape Juice, … Continue Reading ››
