Happy Birthday Marina Sirtis

Marina Sirtis is one of our absolute favourites on the show. The queen of Trek in our humble opinion.
So to celebrate Marina’s birthday here are some of our favourite Deanna Troi moments:

Sam:
I felt she got to show all sides of her character in the episode The High Ground. We got to see her as Counsellor, counselling Wesley for emotional support after Beverly was kidnapped. Then the negotiator, supporting Picard in conflict resolution. But I really liked how she sprung into action on the Bridge when Finn beams onto the bridge. Picard throws that awesome punch and Troi takes care of securing the ship and attending to officers. She showed real strength and courage in that episode.

Episode 14 – Star Trek London Clue Three

In this episode The Trekkie Girls have been researching who is involved in Star Trek London and what they think might be happening in May.

What’s On: June

In Part two of our What’s On posts. We look at UK events with Star Trek Guest Stars.

In June we are going to:
 
June 2012
1st – 3rd
 
We have been to a few of these and they are generally well run, simple affairs. They are predominately a trading arena with lots and lots of stalls. With signing areas, photo ops and guest talks. From the ones we have been to before,  the guest stars are sat in the main hall so we can stare at them and point (honestly, its like a pet shop!). But some guest stars are too precious to be left out like nerd bait for us to chew on so they store them away in secure areas.
This year there are loads of media guests but we are Trekkie Girls so these are the ones we want to see:

Happy Mothers Day

We wish all the mummies a Happy Mothers Day today. Some of our favourite Star Trek mums include the infamous Lwaxana Troi, Dr Crusher and Keiko O’Brien.
Lets not forget the step mums too, Cassidy Yates and Leeta make wonderful step mothers, completely obliterating the 21st century stereotype that they are all mean. And then there is the surrogates, Kira Nerys, Deanna Troi and Trip! 
But the real hero’s are the Trekkie Mums back on Earth, in the present. Our Trekkie With Advanced Training – Teressa is one such mum who is on a mission to assimilate her children. We suggested she put them in a maturation chamber until they are 18 but UNICEF took offence to that plan. Instead Teressa is opting for the good old fashion approach and will be documenting her efforts for us to learn from.

So here we have it.  Part one of Trekkie Mum…..
