Around 17.000 participants had attended (19 – 21 October 2012) the “Destination Star Trek London” 2012 Convention and celebrated the 46-year-old TV and film franchise, with six television series and eleven feature films. The event had been organised by Media 10 Ltd in associattion with Showmasters Ltd.
1,083 Trekkies, dressed up as characters from the TV series and films, beaten the previous record of 1,040 set two months ago at the last Star Trek convention in Las Vegas.
The opening day also witnessed the first ever Klingon Wedding in the UK: Jossie Sockertopp married Sonnie Gustavsson, both from Skåne, Sweden. Which can be another record for Guiness Book.
Also, the event reunited, for the first time in Europe, five legendary captains: William Shatner (Captain Kirk – Star Trek: The Original Series), Sir Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard – Star Trek: The Next Generation), Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko – Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway – Star Trek: Voyager) and Scott Bakula (Captain Archer – Star Trek: Enterprise).
All in one, a great success.
