The Trekkie Girls: The Women Of Star Trek - Part 1

By James Whittington
Posted in Features, Treklog, Saturday 16th Jul 2016

As Star Trek fans, who have on occasion been privileged to be asked to host a panel or two at conventions, or write the odd piece for a big broadcasting channel’s website (!), there is a topic that we often get called upon to discuss: “The Women of Star Trek”, presumably, because we are women!

Whilst the intention behind the suggestion is good e.g., to celebrate women or to critique the writing and development of female characters, it sometimes feels like the women on Star Trek is just another category, like types of Starships or Alien Races.

But the women of Star Trek aren’t just a category; the characters are the life and soul of the fran... read more

Epic Action Movie The Wave Is Making Its Way To DVD and Blu-Ray

By James Whittington
Posted in News, Tuesday 28th Jun 2016

A big hit at Glasgow FrightFest earlier this year, The Wave is an all-out epic action movie that rivals the very best disaster movies to come out of Hollywood in recent years.

While so many disaster films claim to be inspired by reality, The Wave actually is since geologists agree that the Åkneset mountain pass one day will fall out and cause a town-destroying tsunami. The feeling that this actually could happen is unshakeable throughout the film, keeping you right on your toes.

Director Roar Uthaug - recently tasked with helming the reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander - had already shown us he could handle nail-biting tension with the acclaimed Cold Pre... read more

The Trekkie Girls: A Brief History Of Star Trek

By James Whittington
Posted in Features, Treklog, Sunday 12th Jun 2016

This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the greatest television series in history - Star Trek. It has quite literally ‘lived long and prospered’.

It all started with one man’s dream, Gene Roddenberry. Born in Texas 1921 he was a distinguished pilot in the United States Army Air Corps and Pan American World Airways. He was serving as an officer at Los Angeles Police Department when he started writing scripts for television shows which ultimately led him to creatin... read more

Hailing Frequencies open.

We are The Trekkie Girls, three geeky women who go to Star Trek Conventions, live blog our thoughts on anything from debating the finer points of the Treaty of Algeron to deciphering Zachary Quinto’s tweets (What the Spock is he talking about!?) and generally fangirling in front of Star Trek actors without having so much as a sniff of Romulan Ale.

Although we have been lifelong fans and blogged for five years, The Trekkie Girls came in to existence twenty years ago when we met at school. Being the class nerds we quickly huddled together for safety in numbers. We became known as ‘those... read more
