What to buy a Trekkie for Christmas?

With the run up to Christmas, we like many others have avoided the shops like the Telurian Plague and taken to shopping online. But what do you buy the Trekkie in your life? Here are some of our top finds:
Compare the Meerkat fans?
 
I'll admit to buying my car insurance through Compare The Market just to get one of their cute Meerkat cuddly toys. For your Meerkat crazed star trek fan you have to check out these adorable little fellas.
These are knitted to order and I personally love Worf and Locutus.
 
For your slightly slutty friend
 

Confessions of a temporally displaced women

Have you ever watched one of those Jerry Springer episodes with the Man who felt he should have been born a Women?...I know exactly how they feel. Except I have no confusion over my gender....but with Time. I DO NOT belong in this time line - its always felt wrong to me! Most people put it down to watching too much Star Trek - they are right. Some say I am 'from another planet' ....thats not it though. And I've given it a lot of thought. As I look at all the aliens in ST, I'm not a Raktijino drinking warrior like a Klingon, I'm too much of a lefty to be a Ferengi and I don't have the bone structure for a Cardassian, but those self-righteous know-it-all humans...yeah thats who I am. I first had these inclinations as a young child. I recently came across an old school book which went into some detail about 'what … Continue Reading ››

T’Pol the most emotional character?

I do like T'Pol and I instantly loved Jolene Blalock when I first heard her at a convention but what was with T'Pol!? 300px-TPol2003 Honestly, she could make Counsellor Troi look like an emotionless Android. I know they have deep strong emotions but she would get teary eyed over the smallest thing. I quite like the banter you can get with Vulcans, it verges on teasing but its great when they break character a little. Like when Neelix tries to get a little smile out of Tuvok or Bones gets rattled with Spock. But if I were T'Pols friend I would tread on egg shells around her.  I think somewhere down the line she must have a bit of Klingon in her. (Ohhh my!) Continue Reading ››

Talking about Larry’s Pendulum

I'm glad he raised this....ohhh my!  In case you don't know what we're talking about, you really should be reading everything Larry Nemecek has to say about anything by way of Star Trek decree: TrekLand Supplemental This is our take on Larry' question "Is TNG due for a Comeback?" 
Now as we have mentioned we were TNG fans first, born into that time line so grew up watching it. We can now appreciate TOS and love the "Retro" look of the show but we confess to being those viewers who as kids would have scoffed at the MDF sets and Christmas lighting effects.  When talking to our TiT (Trekkie In Training) Sarah, we asked her how she was getting on with watching TNG and she said "yeah … Continue Reading ››

Happy Birthday!

Today TNG turns 24!! (since it debuted) which coming from a pair at the grand old age of 29 it doesn't seem that old. However upon hearing that Enterprise turned 10 years old on the 26th....What The Spock!?  Is there a rip in the space time continuum?? I suppose the difference is that I don't remember TNG starting...its always just existed right!?...like The Original Series or Q? I remember each of the others starting though and hearing that the 'newest' incarnation is now 'old' makes me feel a little more mortal. Enterprise turned out to be an excellent series though, cut waaaaay before her time. Shame on you TV execs (bunch of Ferengi). Once we have assimilated the world into Trekkies we are looking at having an advanced programme … Continue Reading ››

The Neutral Zone

3 ROMULANS WALK INTO A BAR.....
 
 
 
The first one is Dirty, the second is good for a one night stand and the third will last you allllll night.
Being Trekkie Girls, we had no dates on Friday night so instead decided to hangout in The Neutral Zone and create the perfect Romulan Ale. We have heard of many concoctions but ironically some of the ingrediants for the official version are illegal in the UK! 
There was a difference in opinion over which one was the nicest and which one tasted most like Romulan Ale. We can't remember what's in the first one - probably everything...and that's why we can't remember! The second one is Absolut Citron (that's Vodka, not a make of car), Grape Juice, … Continue Reading ››
