A few weeks ago here we told you about something Trekkie and mysterious happening in London. A website appeared teasing the arrival of some mega-Star Trek event in the UK, but didn’t offer any explanation of what that event might be. We theorized a resurrection of Star Trek: The Experience but it looks like it’s something both less and more.
This morning they emailed us with more details teasing the big event and what they describe appears to be your run of the mill, but really big Star Trek convention. It’s happening October 19 – 21st at ExCel London and here’s what they say you can expect to happen there:
- Meet the stars of Star Trek.
- Get Autographs
- Pose for Professional Photographs
- See realistic sets, costumes, and props
- Watch stunning stunt shows
- Hear amazing talks from the people who made it happen
That’s still a little vague and the convention’s promoters are promising to reveal even more details on April 16th when tickets will officially go on sale at 1pm, but only to those who have pre-registered on the Star Trek London website.
Personally I was hoping for something more permanent than a Star Trek convention, but at least this sounds like it could be a really good Star Trek convention. If you’re in London and you have a spare Starfleet uniform laying around, make plans to show up and buy an Orion Slave Girl.
