A little break from our reporting on TGSITG. Our Interviews are coming together nicely. Just working out the best way to share them on Blogger. Meanwhile you can check out some additional pictures on our Facebook page.
We wanted to share some news about Destination Star Trek London.
Colin from Trek News and Views was able to secure an interview Jill Ubdegrove from Media 10, the events company that is organising DSTL. We were unable to make the call as we were reporting from Peterborough but we sent Colin a list of questions in advanced and along with and Wayne from the TrekMate Podcast, they grilled Jill for information.
The interview can be found via Trek.FM or iTunes but it comes with a health warning. You will get VERY excited!!! Don’t drink too many liquids whilst listening.

Six Months, Five Captains, One Destination equals Thousands of excited Trekkies!Today was the big reveal. We feel like we have died and gone to Sto Vor Kor
www.startreklondon.comWilliam Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula are all attending this incredible event. From what we can see this is more than your average convention. There will be a bridge set for photos, original sets, props and stunt displays!? It promises to be interactive and more focused around the fans. We thought that the event would be focused around the movie and are gratefully wrong, as this will have something for every fan. Reason we love this event already: It has something for everyone. Not all Trekkies want the … Continue Reading ››

Ok we are getting a little obsessed with the Star Trek London mystery. In episode 14 of our vBlog we explain why we think the event is based around the new movie. There is a visual clue on the registration website and the avatar on the Twitter Account. That is the new look insignia, native to the JJ movie. However, take a look at the back ground on @StarTrek_London 's twitter homepage:
It's our good friend the Enterprise -D

We have a launch date!Star Trek London are being as secretive as Section 31 with their plans but like all good agents they have disseminated a small piece of information to keep us guessing.But that's not going to keep us from looking for more clues! Today @StarTrek_London revealed the 'dates' of this mystery event....The popular opinion amongst fans is that its The Experience which is currently touring the United States.We have noticed that none of our great suggestions are circulating! (See previous post Is London Ready? and What is Star Trek London? )We would have thought if it were he Experience they would host it for longer. This has to be a convention right? Oh please let this be a convention!Three days sounds about right? … Continue Reading ››
By CaroleMe and Sam have always loved to have something to get excited about. Be it the invention of a new cocktail (More Tranya?), a fabulous new uniform or the growing success of our TiTs (Trekkies In Training).But at the moment the mystery of Star Trek London has us laying awake at night. See our first post announcing and speculating about Star Trek LondonNumerous rumours and educated guesses are flying around but my hope is for something that'll get us truly excited.....The opening of the first Starfleet academy!!! Instead of overlooking the bay of San Francisco, it can overlook the London skyline. I know it's crazy but its my hope all the same.Continue Reading ››
