  1. A two hour hassle free drive from York. Hopefully!
  2. Personally for whats on that list you are better walking the 10 mins to Resorts World for the choice :) Or ride a camel to make it 5 mins
  3. Its going to be a great weekend for sure very much looking forward to it. One of the best star trek experiences for me was the Klingon encounter at the Las Vegas Hilton back in 1999. Getting beamed aboard the Enterprise D bridge, turbo lift freefall with a shuttle ride to rescue capt Picard. You had actors dressed as Enterprise crew, with Stewart and Frakes on the view screens who filmed parts for the show. Getting attacked by Klingons looking for Picard's ancestor which was one of the group! Finishing of at Quarks bar.. it was a lot of fun. Apparently there is something called the grand canyon.. that everyone else went to see that day. I got some strange looks when I said nah.. I am going to be beamed aboard the Enterprise today!
  4. That's just great. There I was quite happy in jeans and a quick scrub up and now That's just great! I was quite happy in jeans with my 2rd favourite shirt and the choice of old shoes to not so old trainers but have lost that new look. With the girl next door on my arm a quick scrub up, brush my hair (refer to photo) bingo done! Now I am walking into opulent splendour! So now is it the expensive Armani suite or the tuxedo with matching Rolex? The diamond or gold shoes? The bond girl or super model! So if anybody knows where I can pick these up really really cheaply let me know please See you at the party
  5. Well mate I am going in smart jeans and shirt for the Saturday night party. The Friday night party seems to be more dress uniforms. I enjoy all things sci-fi be it star trek or Warhammer but for me I dress for comfort. Go with what you feel happy with. For past events its a mixed bunch!
  6. I have Friday afternoon off now. So just booked a cheap and cheerful hotel called the "quality hotel". Its 3 star for £80.00 25% off for the night. So no early start Saturday morning. Only a twelve minute drive to the NEC and the Hilton hotel instead off two and a half hours. Not sure if I am going to the Friday night party, might just chill at the bar and grab an early night..must be getting old! Very much look forward to Sat event and party see you there.
  7. Just right Nick! lol I tried to book the Hilton Metropole when I booked my convention tickets in August but they only had single occupancy rooms. I just checked today and they had a Queen Executive Room available so I booked that. #ShortStagger! Ugh..mate with a tribble not only would it tickle, the offspring would be some sort of wired ewok! Oh I am gate crashing the Executive lounge by the way and the guys and girls from the forum are coming as well... I have gone way off topic. What was the topic again? I have heard that if you book a royal suite such as a Queen Executive, included in the price are minions. They will carry you all the way up to your room, place you gently down on a bed of Tribbles and if you are feeling sick sing soft kitty to you! The rest of us in peasant class rooms get a slap round the face, told to sober up and a shove up the stairs! I want to be royal. Oh well stagger on. Now I'm more excited! As long as the tribbles don't try and mate with me or eat me I should be fine. Seriously though, the best thing about executive rooms is that you get access to the Executive Lounge which has free food and drink!

  9. Robert Picardo would be great. But to meet Dwight Schultz not just Reg Barclay but "Howling Mad Murdock" from the A-TEAM my 80s childhood would be complete!
  10. I have booked photos with Walter Kroenig and George Takei. Really looking forward to meeting both. As I am a big B5 fan as well I get to meet Alfred Bester the ultimate villain next to KHAN. I wish I could of met Jerry Doyle! Rest in peace my friend.
  11. I will be on my own.. No I don't smell or act weird! I was going with two friends but they have other commitments now. So if you spot me at the event or the Saturday night party say hi or more if you wish!
  12. I have decided to treat myself to the Hilton on Saturday night. No messing with taxis, trains or buses. Or put it another way.. I don't have far to stagger to my room after the Sat night party!
