In December last year we learned that Marina Sirtis aka Deanna Troi would be making her West End debut at Trafalgar Studios. The show wouldn't be running for long (it's final performance is the 3rd August).
There was a huge amount of hype in the run up from the incredibly passionate and enthusiastic team made up of Andrew Keates (Director), Jamie Chapman Dixon and Piers Cottee-Jones (Producers) who went up and down the country, across convention halls to promote this play.
So we were pretty fast to book the moment the tickets had gone on sale. Had we waited just a few days we would have have purchased through the crowdfunding site but alas we had already committed a weekend and made an away mission out of it.
On this Friday's Live chat we'll be looking at episodes 15 - 20 of Season 1 Deep Space Nine. We'll also be discussing our cringiest fan moments - moments in our past where as fans we have embarrassed ourselves or can't believe we did that!
As we are doing Deep Space Nine we have changed our 'Blended' section where we create Star Trek Themed Cocktails to 'Quarks'/ Where this week we'll be trying out the Raktajino!
We posted a review some weeks back on the new range of official Star Trek apparel from Wild Bangarang which we instantly fell in love with so we were thrilled to hear from them again to say they had added to their range.
They have kindly sent us these products however we only review and recommend products we like.
Newly added to the collection include Klingon leggings and a dress, Romulan leggings and the Juan Ortiz retro prints - which you may remember from the 50th Anniversary art collections.
We couldn't resist these Starfleet Pride leggings though. And just in time for Pride Month too!
The Trekkie Girls Do Deep Space Nine! We are returning to our Friday night live chats each Friday at 21:00 BST. In this first episode, we revisit the series Deep Space Nine and share Sarah's first impression of the first 7 episodes. We also discuss:
- Trek Bounding (Trek themed attire) - The UK screenings of the DS9 Documentary 'What We Left Behind' - The PICARD news and THAT teaser.- Blended - Trek themed drinks. - DS9 Diva - which character standouts for the first season of DS9.
The incredible Deep Space Nine documentary 'What We Left Behind' is coming to 44 UK cinemas thanks to CinEvents.
We'll be heading to our nearest screening in Southampton on the 26th June, we hope some of you will join us. If you have been to the Sci-Fi Ball previously, this cinema is a tribble throw from the Grand Habour Hotel.
If you can't join us you're bound to find a location close to you and you can book your tickets here. UPDATE: Ireland, Austria and Germany now also included!
If you aren't aware of the documentary (where you been?) it's a showcase feature of the series dubbed Star Trek's 'middle … Continue Reading ››
If you've been watching our Friday Night Live Chats you'll know that we love sharing Star Trek Bounding ideas. If you're unfamiliar with the term it simply refers to dressing in a subtle way to express your fandom through clothing and accessories. They always say to dress for the job you want and ours is Starfleet!
That's why we were very excited when Wild Bangarang got in touch and asked if we'd review their range of officially licensed Star Trek apparel.
Our usual disclaimer, we only review stuff we like. We know licensee holders pass vigorous standards to sell Star Trek products so if we don't like something, it just means it's not our taste. We don't want to use our little voice on the internet … Continue Reading ››
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 .
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 ››
Our next away mission is days away. It's one of our favourites, it's the Sci-Fi Ball! Now in it's 25th year it is marking this anniversary with a weekend of special events including the UK premiere of the film Hashtag, produced by Los Angeles-based Runic Films and Little Empire Productions, will screen at the 25th Sci-Fi Ball held at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton.
This year has another amazing guest lineup. For us Trekkies we have the return of Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris, ST Voyager). Other guests include Sean Pertwee, Andrew Lee Potts, Gigi Edgley, Dino Fetscher, Lucy Carless and Terry Malloy .
The Ball is a unique convention in the UK, it's by no means small. It takes over an entire hotel however it is intimate and personal. Everyone feels like a friend. There is much … Continue Reading ››
24th Century Socialites. 21st Century high functioning nerds. We go to Star Trek Conventions and talk about Star Trek a lot.
