I would like to do this, but

a) Don't have a uniform
b) Just bought a subscription so a little shorter than usual on cash
c) valentines day! even though me and the missus are big star trek fans its quite an inconvenient day
d) It's London! of all places

Personally I would suggest making an appearance at something like the next Multiplay (www.multiplay.co.uk) event, 2k+ gamers, could easily get the name out.

So you're Chinese too huh? While I'm sure Garrett **** is a decent person, I'm surprised how chunky he is and his character is only slightly less annoying than Wesley!

Seriously, it appears little thought was given to scheduling this Guiness World Record attempt. Why on Valentine's Day? Why not a week earlier or two weeks later to let people get to know the game a bit??

Id be all up for this except for the most obvious detail. Valentines day! My girlfriend already hates how much time Ive put into STO (and the new PC I bought to run it!). If I told her Valentines day was cut for an STO event she'd have my guts for garters!

Ive got the perfect costume too! Dyed my shagpile rug blue and red. Horta FTW!

So this is set up to make the attendees look lonely. I can see the tabloid headlines now...
