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.
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)
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.)
