ICYMI last week a competition was held to win tickets to a special fan event at Paramount Pictures to preview the new trailer of Star Trek Beyond. It will also have a Q&A with director Justin Lin, cast, crew and ‘other surprises’
To be in for a chance of winning you had to submit a 50 second video explaining how you went ‘beyond’ as a Star Trek fan and why you should go to the fan event at Los Angeles.
Paramount gave away 50 tickets a day to the event and one grand prize a day to include flights, accommodation and entry so us poor and distance-disadvantaged stood a chance.
We HAD to go so we each made a video in the hope that one of us would succeed. And thank the prophets our Trekkie In Training Sarah won!!! So the Trekkie Girls are heading out to Los Angeles next Thursday 19th to attend this ‘special fan event’.
We are incredibly excited and grateful. We cannot wait to visit the home of Star Trek, where 50 years of history has taken place! It’s the perfect venue to see what lays Beyond….
We feel a bit like Tom Paris in Voyager’s Future’s End at the moment. I (Sam) have had the privilege of visiting Los Angeles twice and not for very long. So I have that Tom Paris thing going on where I have very limited knowledge, but it will have to do!
You’ll hear us walking around Paramount pictures saying things like ‘groovy’ ‘What’s that thing in your pocket?’ and ‘A leads to B leads to C’!
Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Periscope where we will endeavour to bring you as much information as possible from this exciting event!
Here’s our video’s we submitted including Sarah’s grand prize winning clip!
