No sonner does the TNG conference finish as nearly every other guest arrives on stage. We find press conferences a bit weird because there is no fan spirit just photogs gawking!
Dominic characteristically gets the first joke in when they ask for questions he asks "when's lunch?" - well we laughed!
Trek radio ask Jeffrey Coombes about difficult makeup. But Jefferey doesn't have a favourite, he said it would be like picking a favourite child.
We asked Dominic and Conner about the campaign to bring back Enterprise which they felt was very flattering, especially seeing people standing outside the studio and actively campaigning. But they feel it is unlikely with the industry being as it is. - shame!
We just sat in the TNG press conference with Michael Dorn, LeVar Burton, Marina Sirtis and gates McFadden
It was a bit tough at first as no press were asking questions which is the opposite to when fans are present so we thought we'd get the ball rolling by asking he first question. So we asked if they had seen the Enterprise bridge yet. Marina with her brilliant British humour informed us that she used to work on the real Enterprise bridge so no big whoop!
A slightly more serious question about why the TNG crew got along so famously, Marina spoke about how rare it is for Hollywood but it was luck and chemistry and trickled through the cast. But Patrick Stewart was a serious actor, something that took 6 months to break! Then he was the ring … Continue Reading ››
We have landed! DSTG is a bit like a starship without any families at the moment and they're still attaching the warp nacelles but soon it will be breaking with fans! We couldn't wait though and snuck in to give you this preview.The bridge - if you saw the one at Hyde park or Vegas, this isn't it! It's more of a photo set piece but it is amazing! It consists of the three seats, the wooden arch, backlit panels and turbo lift doors. It looks the real deal and has pride of place as you enter the hall.There are much more mechandise stalls which are more relevant. Keep tuned for more sneaks peaks soon....
Good bye England we're off to DSTG in Frankfurt. We have our bags packed solid with costumes, wigs, comm badges. We can't even fit in a change of clothes for the way home!
As usual we'll be tweeting all the happenings throughout the three day event. We're also going to sneak in early tomorrow morning and give you a sneak preview of the event! (Because waiting a few hours is unacceptable!).
We'll be hosting a number of events over the weekend so please add us to your timetable. Here's what we're planning (times subject to random changes!)

Tonight we hosted the Destination Star Trek Germany Twitter and Facebook takeover and decided to do something a little different. We played a trivia game based on the newly announced full guest line-up.
As part of our takeover of Destination Star Trek Germany each wednesday, we have "obtained" two tickets to the Saturday night party. As they say on Risa, "What's ours, is yours" which is why we are giving them away like a psychologically unbalanced Ferengi to one lucky DSTG guest.
