Sci-Fi Ball 26 – Review

http://www.youthministrymedia.ca/j9mi55nu65e 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 ››

Sci-Fi Ball 25 – Review

We are back from another incredible weekend at the Sci-Fi Ball Southampton. The guests included Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris, ST Voyager), Sean Pertwee, Andrew Lee Potts, Gigi Edgley, Dino Fetscher, Lucy Carless and Terry Malloy .

https://www.amnow.com/ig81p027 Now, being exclusively Star Trek bloggers, we wouldn't normally attend an event with so few Trek actors but we made an exception for the Sci-Fi Ball for several reasons. Most importantly because we want to support this particular event. It's primary mission is to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and over the weekend we heard from young people who had received invaluable support from this charity.

Secondly, we love all the people who work tirelessly to organise this event and everyone who attends. But also because we just have such good fun! We love conventions which are jam packed … Continue Reading ››

SF BALL 23 – Review, Gates McFadden, Patti Yasutake and Larry Nemecek Interviews

Buy Diazepam This year we were delighted to experience a bit more of what the SF Ball has to offer. Having previously only been able to attend for a day, new ticket options meant we were able to experience the much talked about Saturday night cabaret.

https://parisnordmoto.com/xlli6vfon It also allowed us to immerse ourselves in a different type of convention. We are admittedly more accustom to large scale events and some purely fan led events. We feel the SF Ball sits in it's own special category. As the Borg would say "It is unique". The organisers are clearly fans, of that, there is no doubt. But there is a professionalism and reputation (from both customers and the talent) which has made this event last for over two decades. There's a passion for the event's success, it's value and for the charity it seeks to raise money for - The Teenage Cancer … Continue Reading ››

It's approaching February which means time for the fabulous SF Ball! Despite being right in our backyard - The Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton 3-5th February -  it's always the hardest for us to attend!

But this year will be there on the Sunday (Carole and Sarah for sure. Sam, if she hasn't left on her away mission!)

https://popcultura.com.br/af3rcxze3j The weekend 5th-7th February 2016 marked the 22nd SF Ball at the familiar venue of the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton. Guests of "Trek interest” were Casey Biggs and Vaughn Armstrong of the incredible Enterprise Blues Band, and Dominic Keating and Connor Trinneer of Enterprise fame.

https://pinkcreampie.com/rykm65gej2 Unfortunately we were a Trekkie Girl down as Sam had been hospitalised with suspected appendicitis! But the show had to go on, so Carole and I hot-footed it over to Southampton!

http://mgmaxilofacial.com/y04g2qvmpvc A beautiful sight to behold, the ever-expanding bridge of the USS Riker’s Beard welcomed us aboard – we even met their Captain – as well as the lovely guys from the Manchester based USS Phoenix.

SF Ball Southampton -New Lineup

Order Xanax Online Review With just under two weeks to go until the hotly anticipated SF Ball at the Grand Harbour hotel Southampton, some changes have been made to the lineup. We were starting to get slightly optimistic that Jonathan Frakes might actually attend but it wasn't to be. Instead the hilarious and gorgeous Dominic Keating and Conner Trinneer from Star Trek Enterprise have stepped up to add to this Trektastic lineup that also includes Casey Biggs and Vaughn Armstrong.
