"Portal 47 may not be for all Trek fans but if you crave a new way to get a virtual backstage pass and hear from new voices of people who were there, like a min-con package all year long no matter where you live... Then beam aboard and deep-dive through the Portal with us!" - Larry NemecekBut why wait to go to a convention to get … Continue Reading ››
A couple of months ago we were teased with a new project called 'Portal 47' from "The universe's renowned authority" on all things Star Trek, Larry "Dr. Trek" Nemecek. Portal 47 is now up and running and sounds amazing! It comes across as a virtual convention. If anyone has been to one of Larry's talks or stall at a convention you will know he is a wealth of knowledge with memories, archives and friends from all series.
If you haven't heard of the USS Riker's Beard then shame on you and on your hoooouuuuse! The good crew of the USS Riker's Beard are a group of Trekkies who met at the first Destination Star Trek London, all sharing the same hotel. The crew had brought with them the humble beginnings of their bridge set which has been slowly added to in the intervening years. Like all great crews they quickly built a strong rapport and meshed into one superb unit. At the first DSTL the Riker’s Beard was simply then named the USS Customs House after their hotel. They later changed to the current name a name eponymous with all things great about science fiction generally in honour of the mighty hirsute one. The crew then started to build their ship from the inside out! Continue Reading ››
By Sam Heads up, this is literally all I'm going to talk about for the next 12 months. We did our live periscope last week to discuss our collective thoughts but after listening to The Ready Room podcast on Trek.fm with Christopher Jones and guest Larry Nemecek it has go me thinking about what I want to see. Btw, I rarely get a chance to listen to podcasts but I'm glad I took the time to listen to this one (scroll to bottom of this post to play). It provides logic behind the decision to stream and how the development of previous incarnations of Trek can provide insight into the development of this series. Decision to Stream I have no strong feelings about this. When streaming services first arrived, it seemed that they were regular TV's poor relation. Remember the campaign to get Enterprise on Netflix and how many … Continue Reading ››
Last Saturday we took to Periscope Live to discuss all aspects of the New Star Trek Series. Take a look to see who we'd like to be cast, what universe we'd like it to be in and chat with our twitter followers about their thoughts.
How this evaded the chief of security, a Sherlock Holmes loving Android and sophisticated forensic technology is remarkable. Found on one of the Star Trek fan groups on Facebook and posted with permission from it's original poster Allen Thompson. This theory has changed the way we think of sweet little Alexander. By Allen Thompson.... Duras did not kill K'ehleyr! Alexander did! My evidence.. First he was a aggressive little boy that wanted to attack other children! That episode showed it. A future episode also showed he liked to lie. But let's get back to the episode that k'ehleyr was killed in. Worf comes in with Alexander to find her lying in blood. Does Alexander freak out?? No! He just stands their with almost evil stare. This little kid was not raised Klingon. He was raised more like a human. He should of freaked!! But let's continue. Worf ask who did this "Gowron?" He asked What does … Continue Reading ››
In previous years, we have scouted the net far and wide looking for the best gifts to help give the Star Trek fan in your life that perfect prezzie. This year we thought we'd do things a bit differently. You see the problem with being such a well known fan of Star Trek is that it makes for easy gift giving. You can buy just about anything with the brand name stuck to it. Not to sound ungrateful but some products can range from weird to plain horrendous. So here's a few of our favourite 'What `the Spock, did they actually make that?' products.... The Wrath Of Khan - Spock dying - Christmas tree decoration When Hallmark were looking at Star Treks greatest moments to immortalise them, did they ever think 'Spock dying on a Christmas tree might be a bit naff?' Clearly not! You can enjoy this beautiful scene of … Continue Reading ››
It hasn't quite sunk in that it's happening yet but Star Trek is set to grace our screens again in 2017. We need to have a discussion about this. Will you join us Friday 5th Nov at 9pm UK time? Join us on Periscope using our Twitter handle @trekkiegirls to discuss everything New Series. We want to speculate the Spock out of this! Due to the high number of trolls on live streats we will switch off chat within the periscope broadcast but please use Twitter or Facebook to chat to us and use the hashtag #TrekkieGirls
We had been banging on about it for while but did it live up to the hype? Yes Sir it did! We arrived at the Royal Abert Hall early so we could meet friends and get acquainted with the bar. We were thrilled to bump into our friend Michael Clark from Visionary Trek and his friend Victoria. Photo:Mclark1701 We don't want to give spoilers about exactly what they played as the show has just started its tour but here's an overview of how it went and what you can expect. The live orchestra is positioned under a large screen that plays clips from all movies and series to accompany the music. It was split into segments that is narrated by Michael Dorn. The segments included dedications to different aspects for example; each crew, to the captains, to aliens and the Enterprise. There were also themes such as wisdom, … Continue Reading ››
