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. 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 ››
If you're looking for Christmas gifts for a Trekkie than take a look at these winter wonders from Lovarzi. As we state in our vblog review, we are cautious when people ask us to review their products - mostly because we don't want to be in the awkward position of having to saying anything negative should we believe the product be worthy of disposable by a garbage scow! Fortunately we were relieved to discover that the Umbrella's and Scarf's on offer from Lovarzi were good quality so we were happy to give them an honest review. Available to buy direct from Lovarzi whilst stock lasts ... Perfect for this British weather!
We can't stop raving about it! The full range is available online and in stores now and we can't help ourselves! Check out our vblog review! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx3ledE_C38
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DL18dzSO2oE In this episode of the Trekkie Girls we pay tribute to Anton Yelchin, weigh in on the Gay Sulu drama (aka 'it's OK to be Takei but not Sulu apparently!') and show off our new 'Monster Maroon' Starfleet uniforms.
The Trekkie Girls discuss Star Trek news from the week including Destinations Star Trek's announcement that Wil Wheaton will be attending their convention, the (now verified) fake Star Trek New Series poster and news that Star Trek Beyond had been reshooting scenes.
The announcements regarding the New Star Trek Series are beginning to read like a Trekkies dream team from an internet forum. Next they'll be telling us they've signed up William Shatner and Patrick Stewart. They'll be no complaints here! We can't help but fan girl over the latest news that Eugene 'Rod' Roddenberry has been named Executive Producer. Check out our reaction here: The series now boasts five executive producers, in addition to Rod there's also Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Trevor Roth and Bryan Fuller. It's like they want us to like it! Then of course there's the news that Nicholas Meyer has joined the series on the writing staff. Known for directing (and co-writing, uncredited) Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, co-writing Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and co-writing and directing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. So we have a good mixture of producers and writers that cover all aspects of the Star Trek Universe. From Meyer who worked … Continue Reading ››
