well now there are several factors going against me ever coming to the event. its logistically impossible so late in the day being the biggest factor burying any hopes. thats a shame.

i just hope next time the meet up can be a bit more accessible to reach then london.

Brum is generally easier for me... maybe another one could be tied in with the Memorabilia event there (they have two a year).

As it is I'm hoping to go to the DS( reunion Comic Con in London, too.

In order to spread awareness of this meet-up, I've added this as an Event to the Subspace Agenda G+ Page, as well as the Star Trek Online G+ Community (under the "Conventions" Category). If you use apps like Google Calendar, accepting the invite to this event will add the event to your own Calendar (complete with a link to a map).

Hope this is useful to people. I will probably continue to do something like this with other future STO events through Subspace Agenda.

Since there's been talk of this happening more regularly, what if it were made a lunchtime thing instead next time? And location-wise, perhaps multiple cities ought to host? Birmingham is too far away for the south but great for the Midlands; London is the other way around; and so on.

Out of curiosity, how do these things go along?
Meet up with various random strangers, and talk STO?

I'm still 50/50 on it,
a) I heavily dislike using public transport (especially London's) nor am I fond of riding/leaving my motorbike in London
b) still recuperating from a bloody cold I had to catch during the years hottest days...

also keep in mind for those who need to use the Northern Line, apparently both branches are shut this weekend, check out -> http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravel...offset=weekend

Pretty much, or at least that's the way the one for San Diego was a couple years back.

I found my experience a little awkward at first since I personally knew noone else that was going, and I think Brandon was the only person I might recognize (I think at the time he was with Massively or the Priority One podcast, not sure if he had joined Cryptic Studios yet). However, the coolness of getting to meet in real space, with other people that are into the same game as you are, ended up outweighing the apprehension and scariness of meeting strange new people.

...Which is one reason why I thought it would be a good idea to start posting these as Google Events through Subspace Agenda (linked a couple posts up). So not only would you get that added on your Calendar (with whatever reminders or links to maps you might need/want), but you can also see who else is going so you know who to look for beforehand. And then hopefully it's not such an awkward thing to go to a new place and meet new people.

If you are still on your way to the London meet up, the pub is quite busy so we are moving to another location. Will post shortly.
