Hello World!

I'm excited this morning. Yes, there are only 17 days to go until I get to go to the great Voyager: The Return convention in sunny Blackpool.

It's going to be my first convention. An odd part of my brain is quite looking forward to seeing just how strange these mythical Star Trek conventions can be. Another part is of course, quite disturbed at the pathetic mass of jelly I will become when I am actually in the same room as the Earthly Incarnation of Our Icon Herself, Kate Mulgrew.

To be honest though, I'm looking forward to meeting the multitude of online friends who will be attending more than seeing the Voyager stars. They are just a bonus. ;) So many people I've known for such a long time are going that I'm sure it's going to be an amazing few days. I wonder how many of them I'll be able to drag on Blackpool's famous 'Big One' roller coaster - which is apparently the tallest in Europe - with me. Don't be wimpish guys.

If anyone is going, do say hi in Zun's Official Countdown thread. I need a TrekToday t shirt or something to wear so you can recognise me and say hi. I'll be the one with the northern English accent and the yellow hair at the centre of all the chaos. ;)
