With just under two weeks to go until the hotly anticipated SF Ball at the Grand Harbour hotel Southampton, some changes have been made to the lineup. We were starting to get slightly optimistic that Jonathan Frakes might actually attend but it wasn't to be. Instead the hilarious and gorgeous Dominic Keating and Conner Trinneer from Star Trek Enterprise have stepped up to add to this Trektastic lineup that also includes Casey Biggs and Vaughn Armstrong. Casey Biggs has spoken to organisers at SFB towers and said;
“We are very excited to be able to attend and perform for everyone at the Ball this year. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is still so strong in the minds of Star Trek fans that it's always rewarding to be able to meet and chat about the magical world of Star Trek.”Casey Biggs will be attending the entire … Continue Reading ››
The Trekkie Girls alongside the Visionary Trek podcast, interview Robert Duncan McNeill and Manu Intiraymi at the 21st SF Ball - The Grand Harbour Hotel Southampton. 7th February 2014. As usual they drift off topic!
On Saturday we packed up ready for the SF Ball in it's new home at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton. Carole had to work so I took Sarah, our Trekkie In Training, along. Because of new baby, we couldn't stay along as we wanted (like, all weekend!) so this review isn't as thorough as we'd like however we wanted to make an effort and see what we could of the Ball after hearing so much praise.

We love hotel events, they foster a sense of community. It's like being on a school trip with … Continue Reading ››
This year we are very excited to make our first trip to the famous SF Ball 6th - 8th Feb. We have heard so many exciting things about this event, from the cabaret, to the interaction with guests, not to mention those con dances! It's a travesty on our part that we haven't made until now. Alas, with a little one and work commitments we are only able to attend for the Saturday but we can't wait to soak up that Trek Atmosphere. Plus, hailing from Portsmouth, it's now in our back yard, Southampton. The Shelbyville to our Springfield. We had the privilege to talk to SFB events organiser B who kindly took the time to talk to us. Her passion and enthusiasm for the event is simply infectious. We could tell immediately that this is an event created with love. Being Trekkies, we were keen to hear how this … Continue Reading ››
