‘STAR TREK ONLINE™–‘GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™’ ATTEMPT!

Namco Bandai Partners to attempt Star Trek themed Guinness World Record on Millenium Bridge on February 14th at 1.00pm

Namco Bandai Partners, the Distributor of Star Trek Online, in association with Atari, will attempt to set a world record for the‘largest gathering of people dressed as Star Trek characters’ on February 14th at 1.00pm on London’s Millenium Bridge to help celebrate the arrival of brand new MMO, Star Trek Online.

Star Trek fans are invited to attend dressed as anything Star Trek related, from an‘Andorian Ensign’ to a‘Zakdorn strategist,’ and adjudicators from Guinness World Records will be present to log the record attempt and ensure that everyone present is dressed in full Star Trek attire.

The best dressed fans on the day will win exclusive Star Trek Online prizes including lifetime subscriptions worth over£150 and recently released digital version of the Star Trek movie.

“This should be an absolutely fantastic fun filled day and definitely one all fans of Star Trek should get involved in,” said Lee Kirton, Head of UK PR Namco Bandai Partners.“This is the chance to become part of history with a‘World Record’ for the largest group of dressed up Star Trek characters in one place. Namco Bandai will also have a bunch of fantastic prizes up for grabs on the day for the best dressed‘Trekkers’ and some prizes for just being part of the day should make it a trip worthwhile!”

Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor of Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer’s Edition, said:“Star Trek has such a huge following around the world, and its legion of fans deservedly has a reputation as one of the most committed groups in Sci-Fi fandom. It will be a great honour to adjudicate the first official world record attempt of this kind.”
