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 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!……
