Continuing our mission to attend the worlds best Star Trek events, the Trekkie Girls have locked their targets onto FedCon 26 which is being held in Bonn Germany 2nd – 5th June 2017.
There’s a stellar Trek lineup this year including LEVAR BURTON (Geordi La Forge), MICHAEL DORN (Worf), MARINA SIRTIS (Deanna Troi), GATES MCFADDEN (Beverly Crusher), CHASE MASTERSON (Leeta) JOHN DE LANCIE (Q) and COLM MEANEY (Miles O’Brien) . Also appearing are some great non-Trek Guests like Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman and David Hasslehoff!.
With so many Next Generation actors appearing, it looks the perfect place to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek The Next Generation.
The convention is located in the city of Bonn near Cologne-Bonn airport which boasts five direct flights to the UK. It is also an hour and half from the soon-to-be-opened official Star Trek Roller Coaster located at Movie Park Germany (unfortunately it doesn’t look like it’ll be open in time for this event).
Sam and Carole will be attending all weekend, blogging, live tweeting and live streaming from the event.
Marina will be swapping her counsellors couch for a caravan when she opens The Caravan and Motorhome Show at EventCity, Manchester on Thursday 17th January.
Marina is a supporter of the Caravan Club, which instantly makes it much sexier.
Following the opening, show visitors will also be welcome to meet Marina, who will be signing autographs on The Caravan Club Lounge (stand 3-15).
And check out this gooooorgeous pic of her that was included in the Press Release.
**Update 16.1.13** If you want to meet Marina, best be early (10am). We hear she will be in a Trek Themed caravan, meeting fans and signing autographs. We have a mental image of Troi trapped in the Shuttle from Skin of Evil! We also kinda hope the caravan has well endowed Nacelles!
If you do go, please send us some pictures and don’t be shy about suiting up Starfleet style!
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:
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.
