We Have The ‘No Con Blues’ – STLV 2018 highlights

We didn't make it to Star Trek Las Vegas this year and we're trying not to feel sorry for ourselves because we know we are the fortunate ones. But missing out on a legendary convention that feels like home is worse that the 'Post Con Blues'. So we scoured the depths of our phones to make this short compilation of behind-the-scenes clips from last years STLV.

 

 

 

Deanna and Will – Short Character Story

If you watched our livestream last night, you would have noticed a new feature called "Take Me Out To The Holosuite". Submit any character from the Star Trek Universe and we'll write a short story about them.

Let us know if you like this new feature! Here's our first one where we share what we think Will Riker and Deanna Troi are doing now.....

"CINQUIÈME MAISON"

A pack of small dogs are sprinting in an immaculate garden. The four dogs are no bigger than Earth chihuahuas, beautifully groomed and their collars adorned with wadi gemstones.

The dogs dart between rock gardens, leap over small streams and brush past the Muktok plants. As they reach their intended destination at the magnificent palatial house, the imposing doors opened to let the small … Continue Reading ››

Last weekend we went to London Film and Comic at Olympia. As we say every year, it seems to get bigger each time.  We attended on the Sunday which was perfect. Whilst it was hot it wasn’t completely sweltering and the crowd size was big enough to have a good vibe without being overwhelmed.

William Shatner

The William Shatner talk was PACKED. This man does a lot of conventions and still draws in the crowds. He keeps it fresh, entertaining and humorous. Because he never stops working he always has breaking news to share with the audience. 

This time he told us he was working on a Blues album! He Is also making a documentary about making a Blues album.

TREKKIE GIRLS CHAT TO SHAZAD LATIF ABOUT RETURNING IN SECTION 31 SERIES.

At London Film and Comic Con last weekend we caught up with Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler and Voq from Star Trek Discovery). He was very gracious and approachable, truly wonderful with the fans and was a pleasure to talk to.

We asked him how the Section 31 series with Michelle Yeoh is progressing:

The head of the CBS said it was about 2 years down the line, so we're maybe a year and a half away but it all depends on the people. Michelle is very busy, it depends on her being free, me being free. It depends if I fit into the timeline. There's loads of things that we don't know and they have to write it. We'll know more in a year.

- Shazad Latif, 28th July LFCC

Will we be … Continue Reading ››

Voyager’s Robert Picardo in talks to appear in Star Trek: Picard

It’s a cameo that makes perfect sense and at London Film and Comic Con last weekend, Robert Picardo (The EMH and Dr Zimmerman from Star Trek Voyager) confirmed that his agent was in talks with CBS to possibly return in Season 2 of Star Trek Picard.

“I am pleased that they (CBS) have expressed interest in me. They have reached out to my agent about next season. So I’m looking forward to seeing what it is. As you know I play two characters, primarily the Doctor but also Lewis Zimmerman.”

Robert Picardo - Sunday 28th July, LFCC.

Check out the full interview here.

We sincerely hope we see Picardo in the … Continue Reading ››
