How are you arriving at the £900 figure? What's to stop people from purchasing a regular entrance ticket for £30 and buying 5 tickets for the captain's autographs (probably £30-40 each) ?
£900 is the lowest priced entrance ticket that gives you confirmed access to the in person captain autographs. As yet there's no evidence that single autograph tickets will be available on the day. Of course Shamasters are intimating they will be, but then this company has said an awful lot of things over the years. If single auto tickets are available, you can only dream about getting Shatner and Stewart for £30-£40 each at a CBS officially sanctioned event. In 2003 at London Creation, Shatner was £65. Stewart is I think around $80 at Creation events in the US which are CBS licenced.

Given that few people give a damn about Enterprise, the whole selling point of this event is already looking pretty disingenuous at best.

The £900 could be the top ticket level.

Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

Just been nosing around on Creation's site and looking at their annual Las Vegas Trek con in August. They have Shatner, Brooks, Mulgrew and Bakula all on the same day. Probably won't be long before they get Stewart as well. He always loves the money.

$300 for a photoshoot with Shatner and Bakula. And Creation wonder why their attendences have been dwindling and dwindling in recent years. You couldn't make it up.

^You just said it was the lowest that gave you confirmed access, i.e there could be a lower ticket that doesn't give you confirmed access. It might not be on sale now, they probable want to sell the top tickets first.

Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

I would like to think that it will happen, but if true the money is ridiculous.
Then again autographs are only worth something to those that care about them.

What is the cheapest ticket ?

As I understand it, there isn't.

Cheapest day admittance is £29 I think. Gets you nothing by the look of it. Everything is extra once you're in there.

Individual auto tickets may well be in existence at some point, although the obvious question is why aren't they on sale now? If you go on the Shamasters forum, half the questions are being answered with "don't know", and if you say it's too expensive or mention Warp 10, your posts get deleted. Shamasters have had loads of new forum signups today because the forum link on the official Star Trek London site leads straight to them. With all the posts which are being deleted, Joiner's already making Media 10 and CBS look pretty piss poor.

This whole thing already looks like a disorganised piss up.

For £2,999.00 you can buy a VIP pass, no further info.

What on earth would be worth such an amount of money?

I'd expect an actual space flight. With Chris Pine.

Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

Oh dear this is disappointing. It looks like the event is being run by showmasters. After encountering a very rude steward at kleptomania a couple of years back i swore i would never attend another one of there events again. That wasnt the first time either!
Also 29 quid to get in for the day and you have to pay extra god knows what for the talks!
I live about 3 hours away from excel if the north circular is clear and i think it would just cost too much in petrol to get there. Petrol prices being what they are and all, and its going to get worse.
I think i'll just stick with the vegas convention. This makes creation's day ticket look cheap! At least it includes the talks and the dealers room and the secondary theatres/activitys. And i get a nice break in vegas for a couple of weeks, which i do save up all year for.
If i win the lottery i might go. I might get the 3 grand vip package then.
What are the odds that all 5 captains will actually show up? At least one or two will probably get another commitment closer to the time.
I am seeing this as a kleptomania with just trek guests. Horrifically overpriced. Plus its extra to get into the parties as well.

Sounding almost as if it would be cheaper to fly to the States and do the Nevada con. All you need is a group of you to go to lower the cost of accomadation per person.

You probably came across the fat, sweaty, foul mouthed, lying idiot who ran it. Everyone at Shamasters is rotten and unpleasant to the core, I'm afraid. And that goes for many of the people who crew its events.

Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

Has anyone tried writing to CBS advising them about Showmasters and their history, and requesting assurance that this isn't a scam on Showmasters' part? I doubt CBS would want to be involved with it if SMs' history is really this patchy, it would really damage them!
