    Star Trek London | 19th - 21st October

    [​IMG]

    Is anyone else planning to attend this 3 day event in October?

    Just announced today was all 5 Captains onstage at the same time.

    My buddy and I are planning a road trip to meet Shatner.:thumbsup

    Got my ticket today, it starts just after my birthday so I will be on holiday and can go to all three days :) I have already met all the captains but I might go for a piece of art with all of them on.

    I just tentatively showed my wife this thread, expecting the usual fobbing off etc, but she thinks it's a really great idea!!! So, I think we are going!!! WooHOO!

    What ticket options are you guys going for? The standard 3 day ones?

    The Gold option seems to have a lot of cool extras included it aint cheap. I don't think I need a goodie bag and signed card that much. I'd like to get there for the opening ceremony and 5 Captain's talk on the Friday, but I'm think that will be an optional extra you'd have to pay for on the day?

    We're looking at the three day tickets @£49 each. That would seem like amazingly good value, even if you went for ONE day! You'd pay that to see a concert and buy a tee-shirt after the gig...Plus you can strategically choose what days and times to attend and still fit other things into the weekend.

    I am wondering what the HELL the £2,999 VIP ticket offers!!! Do you get to sleep with a captain of your choice??? Have dinner with them??? What could POSSIBLY be worth that kind of money?

    I'd get there early...... before they cart Avery off in a straight jacket.

    I didn't think they let crazy people travel.

    I'm already looking for flights as I type :lol (y)thumbsup

    Get ready for few ****-ups :lol

    We really should get this thread transfered to the main forum & make this an RPF get-together at the same time too.

    I'm not bringing the Mrs., but neither do I want to be there like a solitary geerd (geek/nerd :lol)

    I also read on the website that it is possible to have a presence at the event / booth. Maybe the RPF can ?

    I read that, too. I was going to post about it but completely forgot! :facepalm

    I think that it's a great idea, but no one in the UK has the authority to set it up/run it...

    I think it would be VERY expensive though :(

    And a booth would not be the only expensive thing :cry

    Just finished looking into flights / hotac / ticket etc etc.

    No way I can pull this off without eating into my prop budget or contingency fund, and much as it pains me beyond belief, I won't be irresponsible :(

    If this would have been next year, when the youngest and last of the kids finishes school (after 16 + years X 3 kids of pumping dough into their education, total freedom is final coming :lol), then maybe.

    Not this year I'm afraid :cry

    Or, alternatively, wear your R.P.F. tee-shirt, if you have one! I will be. Especially if I get any pics with celebs. It would make a great thread.

    I'm in! Only for the Saturday though, staying in London is a bit too expensive for me!

    Coming with my brother and best buddy, all Trek geeks. Would love to meet some of you cool rpf guys there!

    With just the 5 captains announced its going to be a good event. The organisers are good at getting trek people over (I think they have 5 or 6 already at other events this year) so I am hopeful that the final line up will be great :) I'm only missing 3 or 4 of the main crew from all series so fingers crossed they they get some from my hit list

    Anyone staying at the Custom House Hotel? Seems to be the most popular spot. There's even a Facebook page just for the crew (residents)!

    Be aware the the DLR is not in operation Sat & Sun from Canning Town onward. Bit of a "Trek" from there to the Excel, unless you're staying at one of the local hotels.

    There's a bus replacement running from Canning Town that goes direct to the Excel. I'm gonna drive in though as it's a Sunday (no congestion charge)

    This show is different from the norm. The photos for signings are not free. There is a main table selling them at 3 gbp each and another couple selling other photos and prints. The show was busy today but I still managed to get most of the auto's I needed.

    The 5 captain's on stage was great but was very full.

    The replica bridge is good and for once I actually did a photo shoot. They announced that shatner will be doing a photo shoot on the bridge (tomorrow I think) but its expensive at 85 gap. (Lots of booing when the price was announced).

    There is also a display of props and costumes that are nice and I will try to remember my camera tomorrow to take some shots. Included are federation rifles, Klingon phasers and the nagus's staff.

    £85? Owch I'm booing that too. Already got a photo and auto booked with The Shat. I would've liked a TOS bridge photoshoot as well, but not at that price...
