Destination Star Trek London 2012

FrequencyCast beamed down to London's Excel for the major sci-fi of the year. We look at the Trekker Mecca that is Destination Star Trek London.

Destination Star Trek London

What is DSTL?

Put simply, it's the place for any self-respecting Star Trek fan to flock. It took place at London's Excel Centre between the 19th and the 21st of October 2012, and was an awesome place to be for lovers of the cult sci-fi franchise. Here's what was on offer:

  • All five captains in one place at the same time
  • A real, legal, Klingon wedding
  • A record-breaking gathering of Trek fans
  • The place for autographs and photos with the actors

FrequencyCast was there to soak up the atmosphere, and our 17 minute audio special gives you a flavour of what was in store for lovers of all things Trek.

Writer Ronald D. Moore

We were able to catch up with Ronald D. Moore, one of the best-known writers for Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek:Deep Space 9 and Star Trek: Voyager. He later went on to work on the reboot of Battlestar Galactica.

We asked Ronald to explain just how hard it is to get the science right in TV sci-fi, and how much of a challenge getting the Star Trek Tech actually is...

John de Lancie - "Q"

Although only appearing in 9 episodes, the character "Q" is immensely popular (as well as powerful). Hear a couple of words from John de Lancie in our Star Trek special:
