OzTrek 8: Assimilate – Convention Report

This is an event that Revenge of the Film Nerds has long been looking forward to, and it did not disappoint.   Thank you to Culture Shock Events for staging another fabulous, intimate convention, and for getting two very interesting and entertaining guests in for us all to spend a few hours with.

Culture Shock Events is very good at staging well-organised events that keep all participants regularly informed of what they can expect throughout the day.   They were very aware of time throughout, and went to great pains to ensure the event ran to schedule.   First up was the photo opportunity with the guest stars.   This was a great moment for me, for the first time ever getting to speak to a regular cast member from Star Trek.

OzTrek 8: Assimilate!

Recently, Revenge of the Film Nerds has been chatting with the team behind Culture Shock Events.   This is a group that co-ordinates some fantastic conventions here in Australia, including Armageddon, an event that we immensely enjoyed last year.   After all, that was where we met John Rhys-Davies!!

Being a HUGE Trek fan, I was very excited to hear about their upcoming Star Trek Convention, OzTrek 8.   Featuring Voyager’s very own Seven of Nine, Jeri Ryan, and younger repeat guest character Icheb, Manu Intiraymi, it promises to be an awesome event!!   It will be at the Sebel, Parramatta, on Sunday, the 24th of June.

To book tickets, click here to go to the event website.   Ticket [prices are cheaper for members of FSF, the Friends of Science Fiction.   I know for sure I will love to be there, so looking forward to seeing some ROTFN readers there too!!
