Saturday at Star Trek Las Vegas – William Shatner, Brent Spiner +LeVar Burton Panels

Saturday at Star Trek Las Vegas was as packed with Star Trek goodness as a type 15 shuttlepod on a supply mission.
William Shatner
https://twitter.com/TrekkieGirls/status/893926830415138816 Scott Mantz (our favourite moderator) spoke to William Shatner and their friendship and camaraderie shone through. Shatner is a man who shows no sign of slowing down. He has an ability to hold the audience with his dry wit and his well....Shatnerisms! He alluded to a new project to be announced this week involving Virtual Reality and something that 'had never been done before'? It will also be of no surprise to learn that he has a new book coming out! No really! There were a few awkward question from audience saying that a scene was written for Captain Kirk in Star Trek 09. Shatner vehemently disputed it. https://twitter.com/TrekkieGirls/status/893931939899428864 Conclusion: Beneath his put-down sense of humour William Shatner obviously functions on a deep level. I've often said that he sounds like a … Continue Reading ››

Star Trek Discovery Panels at Star Trek Las Vegas. Pt1

On the opening day there are four...yes there are FOUR panels dedicated to Star Trek Discovery this Wednesday at Creation Entertainments Star Trek Las Vegas... the first was the highly anticipated Star Trek Writers Room panel with Ted Sullivan, Kirsten Beyer and Akiva Goldsman. If you don't follow Ted on twitter already, you must. Not only Ted is a writer and supervising producer on Discovery he is a massive super fan of Star Trek. I was lucky enough to meet him and his companion #JasonGorn and exchanged a brief chat about Star Trek and it's like talking to any other fan at a convention that you've never met before but you share a common love of a show called Star Trek. https://twitter.com/TrekkieGirls/status/892840864430600192

Star Trek Las Vegas Pt 2

‘Klingon Karaoke’ on Thursday night we enjoyed listening to fans with incredible voices (and signing credentials to back them up) wow those of us mingling on the dance floor. When Connor Trinneer, Dominic Keating and Chris Doohan took to the stage, the audience were in hysterics. Then there’s the regulars who’s antics fill us casual attendees feed each August. Seeing the famous ‘Eric Allan Hall’ sing was a real treat. Eric is such a good Data cosplayer we can't say for sure that he isn't a Soong Android. klingon kareoke Friday The day started by buying more MAC for Star Trek (we know, we don’t need to even insert the Picard face palming meme because you’re already imagining it!) Star Trek.com presented the 'Missing footage panel' with Roger Lay Jr (Producer), and the production team Michael and Denise Okuda, Phil Bishop, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. This was a panel we were very much … Continue Reading ››

Star Trek Las Vegas – Review pt. 1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz7vc9hSfPo The five day long convention has passed us at Warp Speed! We're sorry we didn't do daily blog posts but we barely had a chance to eat or sleep! Hopefully you caught our extensive twitter feed covering all aspects. 1arrived Wednesday The convention formally opens at 2.30, we're not sure why so late there must be a logical reason? On a selfish level this is fine as Sam has only just landed! We spend the afternoon getting our bearings, walking in and out of panels, drooling over the vendors room (especially the MAC Station - more on that soon!) and bear hugging old friends and twitter acquaintances. Something we discovered early on was that we were suffering 'missing out syndrome'. This might sound insulting if you weren't able to attend the convention and wished too but even at the event itself, there is always something else going on. When you're sat in … Continue Reading ››
