It’s life Jim, but not as we know it!! Well it was club life but not quite as we know it last Sunday. Yes, it was Star Wars meets Star Trek night with Captain Seany1235 Blinker at the helm!! His lookout for the night was Isabella Elcano as Queen Amidala doing a great job as host and making sure those Klingons kept out of the Star fleet chamber.
The Club looked absolutely fantastic with its giant spaceships from both shows scattered around the dance area, it was certainly an event that people were looking forward to.
I counted at least three Darth Vaders leaping around, light sabres in their hands, looking very menacing, but hilarious as they spotted each other!! We had a couple of Princess Leia’s, one toting guns as she danced, looking threateningly at one of the Darth Vaders. Both Princess Leias looked really good, their costumes just right. One of them, avatar Truthsprincess Baramm, had arrived with her partner in crime Truths Marder and what a good looking couple they made, Truths was a handsome Han Solo, sadly leaving Chewbacca at home on this occasion though.
Before Seany took over dj’ing, Genevieve Gagne had started the event rolling with Elizabetta Westland as host. Gen look beautiful in one of Princess Leia’s more feminine outfits and Elizabetta danced on the stage as one of Captain Kirk’s Star Trek crew. Hotstuff Gothly and Nils Tomorrow looked ready for action in their Starbucks outfits and Gerr Finesmith delighted us with his Rimmer avatar from the cult show Red Dwarf. Of course it wouldn't be right without Mr Spock and Trevor Rookstown had a great av, pointed ears and all! The club was rocking and the sim nearly full to capacity, a great success for the Knightsbridge team.
One last word though, I am assured by the SL London management that there is no split with the London team, although I would expect a little healthy rivalry with managers who want to make their sim the most popular. However, it seems that the two SL London clubs, the Underground Club and the Mayhem Club have absolutely no support for each other. Instead of coming over and joining in the fun at the UGC on the Star Trek night, the Mayhem club regulars stayed away and chatted openly in group chat so that people knew they were around. I have never seen the UGC staff in the Mayhem club either and I wonder what really is going on. I think for big events like the Star Trek night, it would be a nice gesture for the teams to get together and show the SL London residents and visitors a united front! Beam me up Scotty!!!
