Diary: Star Trek diehards prove that it isn’t just a phaser they’re going through

When hi-tech agency Bite organised a launch party for Interplay’s new Star Trek game we just had to beam ourselves down.

When hi-tech agency Bite organised a launch party for Interplay’s

new Star Trek game we just had to beam ourselves down.



Bite had lured ardent Trekkies along to Hammersmith’s Riverside studios

with the the promise of a marathon movie session. This kicked off at 9am

with the first Star Trek picture and ended at midnight when Star Trek

Generations finished.



Thankfully, there were drinks and nibbles for the more socially

adept.



Unfortunately, the caterer overdid the the intergalactic food colouring

and few dared to boldly go where no one would go before.



The pale faced Trekkies stumbled out for air between films and looked

distinctly less healthy than the Klingon pictured. Probably because they

only leave their homes every four years to see free Star Trek films.



But comedienne Hattie Hayridge of Red Dwarf fame, brought in by Bite to

give a presentation, was clad in a short cream outfit that was certainly

set to stun.



We’re sure the game itself, Starfleet Academy, is very good, but frankly

you shouldn’t take our word for it. By the time of the demonstration we

had crossed the final frontier aboard the Starship Beer.
