DESTINATION STAR TREKTM LONDON’ to Attempt to Break Guinness World Record

With ‘Destination Star Trek London’ fast approaching, organisers are appealing for help from fans to be a part of and witness Star Trek history by breaking the Guinness Book of World Records on Saturday, October 20, 2012, at London’s ExCeL Centre.
Star Trek fans across the country will have the chance to join together to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of Star Trek characters, in celebration of the first Star Trek convention to come to the UK in over a decade. 
Destination Star Trek London’ is inviting all aficionados of the show to join in and register at the Main Stage at 6:00pm on Saturday, October 20, 2012 before the show’s closing at 7:00pm.
All participants who take part in the attempt will be awarded with prizes and goodies.
The Guinness World Record attempt will form part of what is set to be a magnificent weekend of parties, guest appearances, autograph opportunities and more. Whilst enjoying these amazing highlights, guests will have the chance don their Star Trek costumes and break the world record for the largest gathering of Star Trek characters.
The current record is held by the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. In June last year, 1,040 fans descended on the Las Vegas Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas, USA, and celebrated the popular show with guest speakers, photo shoots and stunt demonstrations.
The Las Vegas Convention smashed the previous record which was held by FedCon in Düsseldorf, Germany, with exactly 691 fans attending the event along with stars of the show.
British fans have just over two weeks to source their outfits. With such a wealth of characters to choose from they need not be worried about costume ideas. The most popular costume is the iconic Star Trek uniforms with the instantly recognisable Starfleet insignia.  
Visitors of the event who come in dressed as their favourite Star Trek characters will also be able to take part in ourdaily Costume Parades. Entrants will be judged in a variety of categories by our V.I.P judging panel for a chance to win prizes.
The eagerly anticipated Destination Star Trek London’ is the first official Star Trek live event in the UK in 10 years and will welcome all five legendary captains: William Shatner (Captain Kirt- Star Trek: The Original SeriesTM)Sir Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard- Star Trek: The Next GenerationTM), Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko- Star Trek: Deep Space NineTM), Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway- Star Trek: VoyagerTM) and Scott Bakula (Captain Archer- Star Trek: EnterpriseTM). Experts and special guests will be there to help witness this World Record attempt and hopefully celebrate a successful attempt from Destination Star Trek London.
Other exciting features at the event include: further picture and autograph opportunities, a replica set from the Star Trek series, a unique Star Trek MuseumKlingon workshops, stunt demonstrations, costume displays and lots more! 
Whether you’re a dedicated follower of the Star Trek series since it began, or just curious about the Star Trek universe, there will be something for everyone at this year’s show!
