Sci-Fi Ball 26 – Review

We have been trying to think how many SFBalls we have now attended. It must be at least five now. We like the Ball for it's relaxed laid back nature. It's not a signing show or a convention. The guest list is small and the event can best be described as intimate. It's local to us too which makes a difference. But best of all, it raises money for the Teenage Cancer Trust which makes a huge impact on young people who have cancer.

We couldn't be more excited to attend this year to see Marina Sirtis (Star Trek's Counsellor Troi). Any fan who has seen her in a panel knows why she is a favourite at events. She is funny, entertaining and can go from unfiltered what-you-see-is-what-you-get to loving queen … Continue Reading ››

Destination Star Trek – Weekend Away Mission!

It's Trekkie Christmas! We can't believe it's been a whole year already but it's time for our favourite Star Trek Convention (yes we know we say they are all our favourites but that's because they are all our favourites!).

We'll be beaming in Thursday evening, unfortunately we are unable to host a landing party this year due to some problems finding somewhere that would host us, but don't let that stop you beaming down early and having a good time! 

Here's the highlights and what we'll be doing over the weekend!

Timetables can and do change. We are also notoriously rubbish at reading the timetable so please check all times on the DST Website and twitter account.

Friday: 

It's always quieter on Fridays so this is the perfect time to buy some the DST exclusive merchandise that is at risk of selling out over the weekend. We have heard that Forbidden Planet have … 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.

Will we be … Continue Reading ››
