We at Manchester Starfleet are holding our first Star Trek mini-con on Saturday 21st November, to celebrate the release of STXI on dvd.

It'll be at the Manchester Novotel, and all attendees will be able to take advantage of reduced parking rates and also reduced room rates at the hotel if you're travelling some distance.

This is the first such event we've held, and obviously will only be as good as the people who attend make it, so it would be great to see a decent turn-out from all and any UK-based Trekkies.

Obviously, if this event is a success, we will aim to hold more events like it in the future.

Hope to see some of you there :)

Bumping this as the Convention is now less than a week away.

We have had over 100 people register interest in attending so far, so it looks like it's going to be a good day.

There's always room for more though if anyone hasn't seen this yet ;)

So, the Con was this weekend just passed, and it was a fantastic day.

Unfortunately, we had awful weather, which resulted in a lower-than-expected turnout...but I'd say there were still aorund 50 people there, which isn't bad for our first Con.

The best event of the day was the quiz. Two teams of three people (picked at random) were pitted against each other in four rounds: character questions, quotations, pictionary and a quick fire round.
I was on one of the teams, and for my character questions I managed to get Sisko,and I've never seen DS9, so you can all imagine how good I did in that round :laugh:
The only point I did get was for the question "What is the name of Sisko's wife?"
My answer = Mrs Sisko! ;)

For the rest of the day we showed the new STXI film and then just milled around and got to know people, compared costumes etc (I'd say about half the attendees were in uniform, which was great! )

There was also a raffle, where I managed to win a very cool, retro, 1970's Star Trek annual.

The next Con will be in January, and we're already planning bigger and better things for this one!

Sorry should have made it clear - Constellation 2010 is not a purely Star Trek convention:  we will have guests from other shows/movies and we are a charity event - all profits go to charity just like the previous Glasgow conventions!
