This was my first Star Trek Con and the first time I decided to cosplay. It’s 50 years since ‘Star Trek’, debuted on TV. 

George Takei, ‘Sulu’, was who I wanted to meet the most. Meeting, William Shatner, Walter Koenig, and Marina SirtisCounsellor Troi’ of ‘Star Trek : TNG’, was a bonus.

Star Trek : TOS’, has been always been my favourite ‘Trek’, so it was a dream to sit in the Captain’s Chair, on the bridge of the ‘U.S.S. Enterprise’.

Having to also meet a real life lunar astronaut, was quite literally ‘out of this world’. One of 24 people to have flown to the Moon, Al Worden was Command Module Pilot Of Apollo 15.

This event took place at NEC Birmingham, and for me is one of the easiest places to get to. Getting there by Rail, is really easy, but getting there by car isn’t bad, as parking is easy.

If travelling by Rail, getting off at Birmingham International means you can get into the NEC, without having to go outside. So no need to worry about the weather.
