Things I Want To Do And See At Star Trek London


Its one week away to go.  Yes Star Trek London is closing in faster than an unstable worm hole in the Delta Quadrant.  Its being held at the Excel 19th to 21st October and its going to be huge.  Anyway I will be there reporting for the Saturday and Sunday (Yep! They have agreed to give me a press pass the fools) and here are some things I want to see or do (if I'm brave enough!)

1 - Get William Shatner to sing a little bit of Tambourine Man.
2 - Shout may the force be with you in the middle of a crowd and survive to write about it.
3 - Ask Scott Bakula why he hasn't jumped yet.
4 - Drink some Romulan Ale
5 - Argue with a Klingon
6 - Test how good the first aiders are (see above)
7 - Ask Jeffrey Combs if he has his lead vest on (Frighteners)
8 - See if Robert O'Reilly's eyes are really that wide
9 - Find someone dressed in a red shirt and tell them to be careful.
10 - Guess correctly what colour Ira Steven Behr's beard is.  (I'm going for red.)
11 - See if anyone has come as the skin of evil (will get a photo)
12 - Get assimilated by a Borg (will get a photo if I survive.)
13 - Get at least four people to sing the ballad of Bilbo Baggins with me.
14 - Get someone famous to sign my costume.  (Yes I am dressing up.  Enterprise jumpsuit.)
15 - Ask Chase Masterson at the party to give me Umox
16 - See if I can get back into the party (see above)
17 - Get someone to wear a fake moustache and do a Scotty impression.
18 - Tell Rene Auberjoinois that I really enjoyed Police Academy 5 and regard it as my favourite movie (this of course is not true.  Jaws 4 is my favourite movie.)
19 - See someone dressed up as a Star Wars character and ask them if they are lost.
20 - Shout Khaaaannn!!! on the Enterprise bridge mock up.
21 - Buy a Niners baseball cap.
22 - See if I can sell someone to a Ferengi for 5 bars of gold press latinum.
23 - Ask Michael Dorn if he's a merry man.
24 - See if Brent Spiner uses contractions or determine if he just talks that way.
25 - Help break the world record for most visitors in a Star Trek costume.
26 - See if anyone has come (or remembers) Doctor Pulaski.
27 - Find someone who actually thinks the Voyager episode Threshold is one of their favourites.
28 - Have another Romulan Ale.
29 - Find someone with a flute who is playing Picard's tune from The Inner Light.
30 - Tell Patrick Stewart that I thought his performance in the film Lifeforce was very moving and true to life.
31 - Demand the SFX team cover Sherlock in their magazine. (Great magazine though.)
32 - Find the best costume and post it on here.
33 - Have a Romulan Ale
34 - Drink a Warp Core Breach
35 - Drink some Aldebaran whiskey
36 - Drink some Synthale
37 - Seek out some Vidians and ask for a new liver (see above)
38 - Congratulate Andrew Robinson on what a fine book A Stitch In Time is.
39 - Eat some gak
40 - Find the nearest toilets (see above)
41 - Order a ractageno every time I want a coffee.
42 - Find a celebrity Star Trek fan.

Hope they still let me in if they read this.

Really looking forward to the event and will keep you posted throughout the two days I am there.  There are likely to be a lot of photos and a few of me embarrassing myself.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
