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 ››
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!

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.
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.
