Gladiator Live at the Royal Albert Hall
- a screening of the film with a live orchestra.
The Royal Albert Hall at night.
A visit to the Science Museum.
Exploring Space, by far the best exhibition.
They even had a model of the Enterprise.
The Apollo 10 Command Module, on loan from NASA.
A 3D Earth projection that changed from day to night.
Loved this traditional English Ballard about the world being upside down. Please read it.
I dressed up as an astronaut!
The main event - Star Trek Live at the Royal Albert Hall.
The screening was introduced by J.J. Abrams, Michael Giacchino, and Simon Pegg. By chance, our door into the RAH was next to the stage door. An eagle-eyed Mark Knight spotted J.J. Abrams getting out of his car. Yes. We both acted like school children and were quite overcome with emotion.

Finally, I ran into Simon Pegg after the event. Despite being asked by numerous people to have his picture taken with them, he was an absolute gentleman. My new hero.
So, that was my trip to London. I shall never forget it, that's for sure. I'm now working on raising the money to attend Destination Star Trek in October. I have to go.
It's back to work this week for me. A return to normality. What are your plans for this week and for June? I've set myself a daily word count of 750 this month. I want to add a 22,500 word count by my birthday on June 30th. Wish me luck. Also, if you see me frequenting Facebook, kick me off.
