Great news for all those die hard Trekkies in and around Europe. Destination Star Trek Germany is set to become the biggest gathering of Star Trek stars and fans outside of North America in 2014. It will be held at the Messe Frankfurt fairgrounds from 21-23 of February in Frankfurt, Germany.
In best traditions of Star Trek fandom, this 3-day event will play host to many well known Star Trek actors and there will also be a display of genuine props and costumes as seen and used in various episodes. Some of the guest names already announced are William Shatner, Karl Urban, Tim Russ, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, Armin Shimerman and Rene Auberjonois. Final guest list will be available next week.
An exclusive event is also set to take place in the evening of February 22nd, when William Shatner will interview the attending cast members of Star Trek: The Next Generation live on stage. There will also be an opportunity for the fans to get autographs, join in the live Q & A sessions and attend parties. Fans will also have an opportunity to have their photo taken with their favorite Star Trek actors during a professional photo shoot. Not only that, but they will also have a chance to have their picture taken on a replica of the Enterprise D bridge!
If all that isn’t enough, my3Dtwin will have their studio there to turn you into a 3D version of yourself. They will take a 3D picture of you with their custom made 3D scanner to produce a virtual model of you. Your image will then be brought to life with their full colour 3D printer as a figurine of your chosen size. The results will surely be even more spectacular if you wear your Captain’s uniform or that awesome Borg costume!
Now the question is, can the fans attending Destination Star Trek in Frankfurt beat the Star Trek Las Vegas’ convention world record for the most people dressed in Star Trek costumes? Come Trekked-out in your best Star Trek costume and help Germany claim the record!
