Looking for par’Mach?

There's been plenty of romance and bromance on Trek over the years so us Trekkie Girls have been looking for par'Mach in all the right places.... After discussing which members of the cast we'd most like to Pon Farr with, (Sam: Data, call me!) we decided to shake it up and think about which characters would be a good match across the series. Which characters do you think would make a great couple?
Uhura and Julian Bashir
 
Can't you just imagine these two seeking out Jamaharon with each other under the suns of Risa?
We think either the Nichelle Nicholls or Zoe Saldana version work, but as one of them is committed to Spock we'll go with Nichelle.
Logic: Julian likes intelligent, … Continue Reading ››

Happy New Year!

 
Carole and Sam at our New Years Eve party
 
We love New Years Eve and celebrated 4 time zones! At 10pm we celebrated the Estonian New Year with our lovely Estonian friend Kaidi.
Then we thought we had better celebrate Central European Time for our European neighbours. Then it was good old GMT time, centre of the universe! 
We went to bed just after New York hit midnight. 
We have had a great year and starting Trekkie Girls has definitely been a highlight for us (we had been talking about it for 15 years!) 
We did have lots of trek shenanigans on NYE though, and whilst we were in our civvies that didn't stop our friends suiting up:
 

What to buy a Trekkie for Christmas?

With the run up to Christmas, we like many others have avoided the shops like the Telurian Plague and taken to shopping online. But what do you buy the Trekkie in your life? Here are some of our top finds:
Compare the Meerkat fans?
 
I'll admit to buying my car insurance through Compare The Market just to get one of their cute Meerkat cuddly toys. For your Meerkat crazed star trek fan you have to check out these adorable little fellas.
These are knitted to order and I personally love Worf and Locutus.
 
For your slightly slutty friend
 

T’Pol the most emotional character?

I do like T'Pol and I instantly loved Jolene Blalock when I first heard her at a convention but what was with T'Pol!? 300px-TPol2003 Honestly, she could make Counsellor Troi look like an emotionless Android. I know they have deep strong emotions but she would get teary eyed over the smallest thing. I quite like the banter you can get with Vulcans, it verges on teasing but its great when they break character a little. Like when Neelix tries to get a little smile out of Tuvok or Bones gets rattled with Spock. But if I were T'Pols friend I would tread on egg shells around her.  I think somewhere down the line she must have a bit of Klingon in her. (Ohhh my!) Continue Reading ››

Starfleet Klingon Banquet + John Carrigan Interview

Teressa, Kehlan, Carole, Sam
As we have mentioned in our previous videos, we attended the 4.5th annual Starfleet/Klingon Banquet in Northampton. This spectacular event was put on by the crew of Starbase 24 and a big thanks has to go to Kehlan for the amount of hard work she puts into these events.  Since starting the banquets in 2005 over £8500 has been raised for Macmillan Cancer support....damn Trekkies are awesome! The night was made even more special by two surprise marriage proposals and a few birthdays!
This was the first banquet to be held at the Northampton Park Inn, previous ones were held at the Milton Keynes Holiday Inn but we were very pleased with the new location. Although there was … Continue Reading ››
