Well they have released the dates as the 19th - 21st October this year.
I was wondering where you got this info. Have you signed up?
Hi I follow @StarTrek_London on twitter. They announced the dates on Twitter only. I'm sure they'll email the dates soon to everyone who has signed up. I have a copy of the tweet on my blog though if you want to see?

Re: Star Trek London

Thanks for the info.

I'm dying to know what the big secret is, but I'm a bit reluctant to sign up.

The Showmasters forum are saying that they are 'involved' but I wouldn't want to speculate on what that involvement might look like.
If this is a CBS licenced event, I think the CBS legal team need to take a little trip to Milton Keynes and get Joiner to STFU. Given his track record of organising anything to do with Star Trek, CBS shouldn't want him going around saying he has anything at all to do with this event.

The actual company that appears to be running the event is called Media 10 Ltd, based in Loughton, Essex. They have a good record of organising the Ideal Home Exhibition and Grand Designs exhibtion. In terms of reputability and integrity, Media 10 Ltd seem to be a million miles away from certain other UK event organisers.

Event most likely to be a convention of some kind. I hope whoever runs it takes note of what's happened in previous years ie no one turns up unless you get the really big guns out. Nimoy's retired, so that's one less of those guns. Fro me, it has to be a full TNG cast reunion for the 25th anni.

Hi Admiral Bear, Where did you hear that Media 10 were running this? I'm not sure this will be a convention as we know it (excuse the pun!). Mostly because CBS aren't in the business of supporting any of the big convention companies in promoting their events. If this is being paid for by CBS (and all the evidence so far says yes) then I would think it is some kind of promotion event for the movie.
The wording on the website says 'sign up to Starfleet' and I think it will continue with that theme somehow, tying it into the movies release next year.
I'm quite enjoying speculating about it though!

I did a whois search on startreklondon.com. Simples.

This event has to be a whole lot more than a bit of movie promotion for a film that won't be released until at least May 2013 anyway. Why would they advertise something as insignificant as that 7 months in advance, let alone advertise it at all when these things are rarely open to the public? While JJ Star Trek got very good reviews, we have to face facts that the film's box office was mediocre to average given its budget, and that the release of a Trek movie doesn't really carry too much buzz these days.

We'll probably all be wrong about what this event turns out to be. Unless it's a convention with some VERY big guests and James Darren doing a gig in a recreated Vic's Lounge, I'm not interested. I went to that Star Trek exhibition in Hyde Park years ago, and frankly it was shite.

Really? I had the time of my life! So I would be happy if the big secret turned out to be something like that.

If it's a new exhibition, the States will likely get it first, months before the UK, so it won't be a secret for long.

Well, there is this: Star Trek The Exhibition.

Not sure if it's a new exhibition though.

I found this earlier today and thought "hmmm, full scale Ent-D bridge. . and it does says 'explore'."

But then no one in their right mind is going to bring all that over for 3 days. The running time of this event precludes an exhibition as far as I can see.

Maybe it would have a big opening weekend with some celebrity guests?

You could only have so many people in there at one time. . 'elf and safety innit, guv.

Say you had Stewart and Frakes sitting on the bridge of the D for photo ops. TBH, if the only decent revenue over a 3 day period was in that sort of thing, CBS could just ship the set over, reconstruct it in a large London hotel conference hall, and get snap happy with Patrick, Jonathan, and the punters who are happy to spend £100+ on a photo.

No need for the rest of any exhibition.

Just for that, I'll go and put the kettle on.

No milk for me, please. And I'd rather have some crumpets if it's all the same.
