Star Trek Discovery Fan Event – London

On the 5th of November some lucky Trekkies from around the UK were invited to special Star Trek Discovery Fan event in London hosted by Netflix. Including an Exhibition of props, viewing of the latest episode and Q&A with Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham), Jason Isaacs (Captain Lorca), Shazad Latiff (Ash Tyler) and Aaron Harberts (Executive Producer).

The Exhibition

Props from the Star Trek Exhibition in Blackpool were on display including the USS Discovery’s Captains chair, uniforms and props.

There was no doubt that @StarTrekNetflix put in some command level

We were also treated to delicious Starfleet and Klingon pastry treats.

Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

The main event was an early viewing of the latest episode. The first to be written by Star Trek Novelist  Kirsten Beyer. The audience LOVED it, especially the “needs of the many” conversation between Burnham and Tyler.

Q&A

The highlight of the event was the Question and Answer session with Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham), Jason Isaacs (Captain Lorca), Shazad Latiff (Ash Tyler) and Aaron Haberts (Executive Producer). Also attending was writer Bo Yeon Kim.

Asked about the season finale, Harbert responded:

 

Overall an incredible day, a great opportunity for us in the UK to see elements of Star Trek Discovery in person, the chance to ask cast and crew questions directly and to catchup with fellow Disco Fans.

Highlight: Star Trek Discovery and a free bar….what isn’t there to like?

Weird bit: Shazad still avoiding questions on Voq! What else can he do!?
