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).
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

We were also treated to delicious Starfleet and Klingon pastry treats.
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

What an evening! I had been watching the Twitter feeds all night. Upon hearing that Les Moonves (CBS CEO) explain that some "short clips" would air, I presumed there would be a planned release from Star Trek/CBS whereby all social media channels would drop the clip at the time of the Upfronts to avoid crappy leaks. Unfortunately crappy leaks happened. I shouldn't have looked, but I'm only human!
