Our final interview from TGSITG was with the lovely Nana Visitor. We were really looking forward to talking to her as Kira Nerys is one of the most developed and interesting female characters on the show. We were struck with how much passion Nana spoke about Kira. We could sense a real feeling of guardianship over her character. We're not sure if it's just because we're crazy fans but for a second it felt like we were with Kira, like she was peering out of Nana's eyes. In fact, it was a bit like the DS9 episode Far Beyond The Stars when Benny starts shouting "It's REEAAL, I created it and its REAL!". Kira feels more real now and we find ourselves … Continue Reading ››
We were incredibly privileged to speak to Jeri Ryan at The Greatest Show In the Galaxy. Even though she was very jet lagged, she remained as beautiful and witty as ever. As this was Jeri's first visit to the UK, she was in high demand - plus she is official nerd bait!
On both the Saturday and Sunday she had her own question and answer session that was packed out on both occasions. As we have mentioned before a lot questions were about her costume, her boobs and how her bathroom breaks resulted in a 20 minute production break. She did … Continue Reading ››
|J Jeri and The Trekkie Girls (Spot the Jem'Hadar in the background)|
As we mentioned in our previous reports and vBlogs, we had the honour and privilege of talking to some of the woman of Star Trek at last weekends The Longest Named Greatest Show In The Galaxy. However we must confess to having a soft spot for Chase Masterson. We keep saying she was a complete sweetheart (because it's true) and she is the ultimate Trekkie Girl. We wanted to dedicate an entire post to Chase, not just because she took the time to talk to us but because she always take time to spend with all the fans. That sort of contact really makes fans feel valued. Plus she thought we were teenagers! (Our holiday to Ba'ku must have done us good!) We should say that it was our first time interviewing a Star Trek … Continue Reading ››
Day one of The Greatest Show In the Galaxy had been so incredible for us we thought Sunday would be a quieter day. We were in for a pleasant surprise.
We had overslept so we rushed straight to the arena where we once again bumped into the staff member who had helped us get an interview with Chase on Saturday and the next thing we knew, we were interviewing Jeri Ryan! We felt like we had been stunned on a medium setting!
Jeri was an absolute delight and if we thought we were tired, she was very jetlagged but still maintained perfection.
Jeri is always surrounded by security, a sad necessity due to problems with stalkers. They were rather nice to look at all weekend though but maybe … Continue Reading ››
The Greatest Show in the Galaxy was held on the 12 – 13th May in Peterborough and we went to get the scoop, reporting for both Trekkie Girls and Trek Radio, we … Continue Reading ››

Normally we are jealous of all the Trek events that happen in the United States but at last it seems the UK is seeing some action. Fans in our little piece of the Alpha Quadrant have filled a big void. So we thought we'd have a look at whats to come. First up, May.....
12th - 13thWe haven't heard of this company before (that doesn't mean anything, we couldn't name any 10 of the top 100 FTSE companies) But it looks very pro. The way they have displayed team information on their site seems to indicate that they are conscience of their brand and reputation. Which we like. … Continue Reading ››
