Here comes the Darkness

We have been blown away by all the excitement and build up surrounding Star Trek Into Darkness and have been very lucky (or tortured) to have seen the first 30 minutes of the movie, but since the wave of Premieres began last week we have avoided all spoilers so we can sit back and enjoy the movie.
Tomorrow (Weds 1st) we will be put out of our misery as we will see the film in its entirety! Don’t worry, we won’t say a word. Spoilers are out there if you want to find out.
You can find us reporting on the UK release of Star Trek Into Darkness on Twitter @TrekkieGirls

The Good, The Bad, The Benedict

By Carole

He’s hot, witty, smart, an amazing dresser and oh so well spoken, he’ll steal your word (and l should I know it happened to me) buts that’s not what has me excited about his role as the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness – I won’t lie it is part of it 😉
“Did I lock the shuttle bay door when I left this morning?”
I adore the ’09 JJ film but the one thing that I thought fell a little short was that the antagonist, the adorable Eric Bana, just wasn’t intimidating, I never felt that Kirk and crew were in true peril. But from what I’ve seen and heard so far (and its beginning like I’ve seen the whole film now) Benedict aka John Harrison is truly a force to be reckoned with. His voice alone has been sending chills down my spine.
John is a terrorist with an apparent noble cause who does terrible things but can still pull at our sympathies. He plays games with Kirk and crew, a puppetteer almost and they are the best sort of villain.
My fangirl moment
I know a lot of people are hoping that John Harrison is Khan but I don’t I hope he’s not. What I hope is we have a new iconic star trek villain who will be known and imitated outside of the trek world.

ep 34 – Destination Star Trek Somewhere?

The Trekkie Girls discuss Destination Star Trek London’s tweet to expect some ‘exciting news’ and speculate on the possibility and location of another convention.


Another Trailer

Whenever we see a tweet declaring a ‘new’ trailer we have to do a little bit of studying to ascertain if it is new and different from the last one we saw. Not that we’re complaining but we reckon if you shuffle all scenes from all trailers you can piece together the whole film now!

Tough Little Ship v Half as big as her Captain
This latest trailer looks incred! We are itching like a scabby tribble to see this film now. Is it our over active imaginations or do we spy an Excelsior class ship? We can almost see Sulu eyeing it up and mentally picking out paint samples.
