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.
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 ››

What does she think of the second season three part opening!? Star Trek Cocktail - ALL the drinks because we're not at STLV!
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.
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.
24th Century Socialites. 21st Century high functioning nerds. We go to Star Trek Conventions and talk about Star Trek a lot.
