Collectormania 23

It was back to Stadium:MK for what many people believe to be the last Collectormania in MK. To be honest, I'm kinda glad. Personally, I don't think the stadium is suitable. For the first time in a while I had my brother and his family with me. He is disabled and had great difficulty in... Continue Reading →

First Contact Day

This was my first event of the year and all I can say is WOW! It was also my first time in a long while that I had volunteered to help out at a con. The last time I did so was back in the 90s at the Rising Star events. The weekend began with... Continue Reading →

LFCC Winter

Last con of the year for me and a quieter event compared to the madness of the summer one. As normal lots of costumes on display and I again helped with the charity stall for our Starfleet Chapter, the USS Iceni. It was a chance for me to get a few more names on my... Continue Reading →

Starfleet International

Back in the mid-90s, at one of the conventions in Virginia, I met with some people who introduced me to Starfleet International, the Star Trek Fan Club. I went on to join around that time. How does it work? Well, the club is split into regions depending on where you live in the world, but... Continue Reading →

The premiere took place on a bright, sunny day in London. Most of the main cast were present and it was very busy. I Managed... Continue Reading →

Collectormania 11

I was only able to attend one day of this event. Was saving money for the big Star Wars event 2 months after. But, there were a few people I just had to meet! First up was Grace Park who plays Sharon Valerii (Boomer/Athena) in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. She was lovely and very friendly,... Continue Reading →

LFCC

Not many guests that I wanted to meet this time around. John Barrowman from Dr Who was just starting a new show called Torchwood. He was friendly but quiet and very tight-lipped about the project. I then met Gates McFadden of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I was very disappointed. She was not busy and... Continue Reading →

Star Trek: The Adventure~ Hyde Park

I managed to have a couple of days off from looking after my mum when Star Trek: The Adventure came to London.   Star Trek: The Adventure was a traveling museum exhibit ¬†that showcased over $30 million worth of Star Trek memorabilia, props, models, costumes and set mock-ups, including the USS Enterprise bridge and the...

I'm missing lots of pictures from this... Continue Reading →
