The Evening
There aren't themed parties as such at Fedcon like there are at Star Trek Las Vegas or Destination Star Trek but that's because it's one long party! They have a pop up 'Romulan pub' bar. A dancefloor and a DJ adjacent to the Klingon Bar (our favourite). Don't worry, the dance floor served as a neutral zone between the respective Klingon and Romulan Bars! When the panels finished we felt it was a good time to sample the local Romulan Ale. All conventions have their own style and we're sure shares in Blue Curaçao rise whenever thousands … Continue Reading ››

The Original TiT’s Season 2 TNG review

So, I embarked on my TNG Season 2 quest with marked trepidation. My head had been filled with somewhat negative thoughts (“Dr Crusher isn’t in it”; “just get through it – it gets WAY better mid-Season 3”), so my expectations admittedly weren’t very high. At least it’s only a short season of just 22 episodes I thought to myself (thanks to a writer’s strike I’m reliably informed). Well, I have to say I was quite pleasantly surprised… Right, first things first, let’s just get this one out of the way: Pulaski. The Star Trek equivalent of Marmite. Pulaski I have to admit, I disliked her immensely from the very beginning (hate is a strong word), and although I had somewhat warmed to her by the time we got to the likes of “Pen Pals” and “Samaritan Snare” (where she had begun to show an iota of compassion), I … Continue Reading ››
