Star Trek London

Trekkies from across the world have been flocking to London's Excel Centre this weekend for Destination Star Trek, the UK's first official Star Trek convention for more than a decade. It brought together all five starship captains - Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Sir Patrick Stewart and William Shatner - for the first time outside the USA and for only the second time ever. It also hosted the UK's first Klingon wedding (CLICK) and broke the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of fans dressed as Star Trek characters. The office boy running the BBC London News website has done nothing all day but post videos of Star Trek fans in costume and interviews with William Shatner, whose most embarrassing moment at the convention was when a fan pulled out her left breast for him to sign (CLICK).
