STAR TREK 50TH: DESTINATION EVENT UK

William Shatner, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Terry Farrell, Marina Sirtis, Gates McFadden, Robert Duncan McNeill, Armin Shimerman, Christopher Lloyd, Martha Hackett and Alice Krige (the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact) but no Nichelle Nichols beam over to the UK to meet the fans for Star Trek's 50th Anniversary.

Many fans eager to meet the stars tweeted while they waited. Trekkers with Admiral VIP Tickets swept by tons of people waiting in queues which took two hours to get past the check points. The only catch is VIP treatment cost £2,999! Standard Tickets were far cheaper.



Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoys son is seated in command of the Galaxy Class USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D seen here. Space babes Marina Sirtis and Terry Farrell were also among the stars this weekend at Birmingham's Destination Star Trek  Convention.


Over the weekend thousands of Star Trek fans queued for hours to get in on the action with their Star Trek TV/Movie heroes. Marie Gordon flashes her Lieutenant stripes on her red bridge officers duty uniform to curry favor but no can do! It just goes to show. Even Star Trek Lieutenants have to wait. haha!!!



On Sunday William took part in answering questions for the fans. Heres a fun video he made specially for fans.

 

Walter Koenig appeared with George Takei live onstage at Star Trek's Birmingham Convention. These two Chekov and Sulu navigate and pilot the Starship USS Enterprise 1701


This photograph says it all. Its the launch for Star Trek's UK Destination event and the expression on the stars faces is fascinating...... William Shatner has done it again. The look on Walter Koenig's face is priceless.

DRESSING TO IMPRESS


These sci-fi ladies are making the most out of Star Trek's 50th Destination Event. They probably handed their tricorder, phasers and communicators over to an Ensign during the photoshoot. So whats not to like?

 Its life....... but not as we know it!   Jim!

Live long and Prosper, Trekkers

Would've been an awesome event to attend. Although looking out at a sea of red and knowing they were all going to die on the surface...

Have fun and go fight with some Klingons, Spock might say.

Tony Laplume said...

I believe Spock would suggest, "Go drink with some Klingons." He's a secret boozehound. Actually, that's how all Vulcans got those pointed ears...Why do you think Romulans invented their own ale?

That was at the NEC in Birmingham, I thought about going to it, not sure my wife would appreciate it though

G. B. Miller said...

If I read correctly, Will Wheaton said he was going to appear at that convention.

Looks like fun. 50 years... Who would have believed it would grow into what it has become?

How awesome was this? I love the costumes these folks have. I wish I had a decent Star Trek costume. I like the DS9 one the bloke in the back has on. So impressive. I've never been to a Trek convention, but I would love to. The closest I have ever come is meeting Aron Eisenberg (Nog) in person at a Gen Con convention. He even let me take a photo with him. I'll have to dig that out at some point.
Wow! Shatner gives no direct answer, does he?
