Trek Space – Faced

Trek Space is a social networking site for Star Trek fans. It's great because it's only about Star Trek so unlike Facebook, you don't have to talk to your real life friends and family.

Looking for par’Mach?

There's been plenty of romance and bromance on Trek over the years so us Trekkie Girls have been looking for par'Mach in all the right places.... After discussing which members of the cast we'd most like to Pon Farr with, (Sam: Data, call me!) we decided to shake it up and think about which characters would be a good match across the series. Which characters do you think would make a great couple?

Happy New Year!

 
Carole and Sam at our New Years Eve party

We went to bed just after New York hit midnight. 
We have had a great year and starting Trekkie Girls has definitely been a highlight for us (we had been talking about it for 15 years!) 
We did have lots of trek shenanigans on NYE though, and whilst we were in our civvies that didn't stop our friends suiting up:
 

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
