Destination Star Trek London

As I have alluded to previously on this blog, I am a bit of a Trekkie, or Trekker….a fan of all things Star Trek, and have been since I was a kid.  It’s something I’ve never quite grown out of and to this day I continue to be fascinated by the characters, stories and messages incorporated into each episode.  I guess it’s a kind of comfort blanket that has stayed with me – whenever I’m down, or not well, I’ll find myself sticking on some vintage Star Trek episodes to cheer me up.  I grew up with the original sixties series, starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, but later got into Star Trek: The Next Generation, featuring our own Patrick Stewart.

This past weekend I popped down to the Excel Centre in London’s Docklands to attend an official Star Trek convention called: Destination Star Trek London.  Here are some of the images I came back with that will also add to the ever growing material for my ‘Sci Fi Conventions’ personal project in which I have documented, over several years, the people who attend these types of events in the UK.
