Over 20 years ago I went to a wedding where the groom was a big Star Trek Next G fan.

There I met a lovely gentleman who was the spitting image of Sir Patrick Stewart. While I was at Em-Con I asked a gentleman dressed at Captain Picard if I could take his photograph and then had a little chat with him. I discovered he was the very same gentleman I met over 20 years ago. Since then I have discovered he lives near my aunt and knows my cousin. What a small world

e Em-Con 2015, The East Midlands Sci Fi and Fantasy TV & Film Convention had a wonderful announcement yesterday for all fans of TV & Film, they were very proud to announce that Nichelle Nichols who played the role of communications officer Lieutenant Uhura aboard the USS Enterprise in the original Star Trek television series had agreed to be a guest at the convention

I now have to decide whether to buy an Autograph at £30 and have a nice little chat with her or have a Photoshoot at £30 which are very limited.

The chances are that with the autograph I could sneekily ask for a photo with her anyway.

Wrong side of a P90

As totally dippy as I am, my brain was totally disengaged and has been for the last few months never making the connection as I wandered around the city centre trying to find some photographic inspiration yesterday to some of the tweets and shared posts in Facebook from one of my photography friends, whom it turns out is the organiser!

Lee you should have hit me over the head with it just so I took more notice.

SOooo there I was wandering around and I noticed someone dressed in a uniform from Stargate. WHAT! Oh, take a quick peek around to see if something is going off. You don’t often see people walking around in black BDU’s carrying P90s except the police armed response units. Then I saw the Star Wars Storm Trooper. OK so what’s happening here.

What was happening was members of The UK Garrison a science fiction costuming group, dressed as a Storm trooper, a Tie Fighter Pilot and a Imperial Officer from Star Wars and 2 SGC personal from Stargate were seen parading around Old Market Square yesterday afternoon. They were taking part in a launch event for the East Midlands Sci-fi and Fantasy Convention. Apparantly I am one of only a few people to recognise the Stargate uniforms as many others though they were from Star Wars.


OH WOW! OMG, 16 March 2014 Nottingham Albert Hall. Right, that’s it, I’m going, I’m going, I’ve never been to one before.
Colin you can get you own dinner that day.
