Star Trek – Dead Drop – Curbridge, Oxfordshire, UK


Game: Star Trek
Type: Possible Dead Drop
Location: Curbridge, Oxfordshire, UK
Date: dropped before April 27
Status: Incomplete Concluded – Game Finished

Geoff Greatbatch has continued email discussions about his picture of a field in Curbridge. All of the emails have mentioned that it was a shame that no one visited the site during the day and had lunch in the pub. And he has mentioned his friend Colin from the pub twice as well. It is possible that there is more information in a pub in Curbridge for someone to retrieve.

I hope you did make it again the next day and perhaps had a nice lunch in the pub. We have managed to persuade the landlady not to go all gastro pub with nutmeg shrimps and such, the hot pot is very good but best to steer clear of the ‘meat’ pie. It would have been wonderful had you met my friend Colin and put paid to his theories about the markings.
You think they look ‘alien’? Well I prefer your theory to Colin’s ie Ancient Druid spirits and/or Polish immigrants.

There is no mention of the pub name, although a google search for Curbridge Oxfordshire pub gives us the The Lord Kitchener Pub which is not too far from the crash site.

It’s impossible to say if anything is to be found at The Lord Kitchener Pub, or indeed any pub in the Curbridge area. However, it was thought that the crash site wouldn’t be real either and looked how that turned out. So if you’re in the area and don’t mind doing a little bit of investigating, start visiting pubs in Curbridge and asking for Colin.

Update: Not sure if there was anything else to be found in the village. Since the game is now over, we may never know unless they hold a PM chat and we get to ask them about it.



Star Trek – Dead Drop/Meet – Berlin, Madrid *UPDATE*


Game: Star Trek
Type: Possible Dead Drop or Character Meet
Location: Berlin, Germany & Madrid, Spain
Date: April 25, 2009 or April 26, 2009, 16:00 hrs
Status: Finished

A new photo from the CobraSnake party shows another Romulan sign that was translated into times and coordinates.

16.00 hrs
40.408845, -3.693845
+40° 24′ 31.95″, -3° 41′ 37.84″ (Madrid)

16.00 hrs
52.525968, 13.388433
+52°31’33.48″, +13°23’18.36″ (Berlin)

This now is obviously what the PHPChatUser5 conversation from before was about. The only thing people are unsure of is what day these events are taking place. From the original message:

PHPChatUser5: Just be ready, both of you, I’ll have your locations by Saturday – Fe, yours will likely be near the museum right by you with the rusty towers. “Al”, the other is on the eastern side of Berlin, by a derelict building in Mitte. I’ll need you to go the next day AT the time I give! Look for me in one of our spots. Also, I’m handling Sargash.

The picture was taken on “4/24/09 18:41″ which is believed to be 10am GMT. If you follow the instructions to go the next day it would be Saturday, April 25 at 16:00 hrs (local or GMT is unknown). But, it could just as easily be on Sunday, so if you really want to be a part of this, you might have to plan to camp out in Berlin or Madrid for several hours.

@Merzmensch reports that nothing happened at Berlin location on Saturday 16:00hrs local time. So scratch one possibility off the list.

Update: Both events went down on Sunday, April 26 at 16:00hrs local time. @amos_vm, @siedler_2005 and @Amujan were at the Berlin event. They found people in the area handing out flyers asking about information about two Romulans. The fliers provided a phone number to call which informed callers that the two individuals were extreme public threats. They also saw people spraying graffiti stencils also asking if you have seen these individuals.

Eventually, the trio found a backlot where the Romulans had been camping out like hobos. They found a sleeping bag covered in green blood and another person in the area had gotten a message via bluetooth and agreed to email it so that others could see it. It’s a video with some QR Codes shown throughout.

I haven’t been able to find any written reports on the Madrid mission. @colgado47 tweeted that he received a Bluetooth message while in Madrid, but provides no other reports.

Star Trek – Dead Drop – Paris, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Berlin


Game: Star Trek
Type: Possible Dead Drop
Location: Town halls in Paris, France / Tokyo, Japan / Los Angeles, California / Berlin, Germany
Date: Unknown. Possibly April 25
Status: Incomplete Concluded – Game Finished

Geoff Greatbatch sent a high resolution photo that contained Romulan characters written on a board. When translated into numbers, four sets of coordinates are revealed that point to locations near City Halls:

48.8567,2.3510 – Paris City Hall
35.6895,139.6947 – Tokyo, City hall
34.0522,-118.2404 – LA, City Hall
52.5231,13.4114 – Berlin, City Hall

As to what is going to be at each of these coordinates, or even when people should go look, is unknown at this point in time. It seems to be related to the previous breadcrumbs given by PHPChatUser5, despite the fact that Madrid is not in the list.

Further information: Unfiction threadPatmo.de fourmtrek.tvde.eu#arg chat on irc.tvdw.eu

Update: Not sure if anything ever occurred at the coordinates. However the game is over so nothing will be happening now. I keep hoping for a PM chat to be announced so that we can find out if anything was supposed to happen or not.



Star Trek – Dead Drop – Berlin, Madrid


Game: Star Trek
Type: Possible Dead Drop
Location: Berlin, Germany & Madrid, Spain
Date: April 25, 2009
Status: Completed – New information given here Better update information

On http://97.74.158.186/, PHPChatUser5 gave out the following instructions that may or may not indicate that a dead drop or meeting will be taking place.

Just be ready, both of you, I’ll have your locations by Saturday – Fe, yours will likely be near the museum right by you with the rusty towers. “Al”, the other is on the eastern side of Berlin, by a derelict building in Mitte. I’ll need you to go the next day AT the time I give! Look for me in one of our spots. Also, I’m handling Sargash.

According to Wikipedia, Mitte is the central borough of Berlin and encompasses Berlin’s historic core. The area includes some of the most important tourist sites in Berlin.

Although the location for Fe is unknown, based upon his known language and the description of the place, players believe it to be near the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.

Update: Possible new information given in this post. Specific Berlin & Madrid coordinates and times

Thank you @Merzmensch for tweeting.



Star Trek – Dead Drop – Paris, France


Game: Star Trek / The Cobra Snake
Type: Possible Dead Drop
Location: Crossing of Rue de la Fédération and Rue de Presles, Paris, France
Date: dropped April 15, 2009, picked up April 15, 2009
Completed: Yes (sorta)

An update on 97.74.158.186 had PHPChartUser2 state the following location: Carrefour de la Rue de la Fédération et Rue de Presles [Crossing of Rue de la Fédération and Rue de Presles].

Based on Google Street View, the best guess for a drop location is the Cafe Le Presles, although it’s possible that it could be elsewhere in the vicinity. That is if this is even an notification of a dead drop.

Further information: Unfiction thread

Thank you @Merzmensch for originally tweeting.

Update: Via Unfiction, TrekMovie.com reports that there is an article on LePost.fr from someone who claims to have the device that was dropped at Rue de la Fédération and Rue de Presles. You can email him to claim the item at mklvnd@aol.fr. Make sure you offer a reward.

Update 2: Since no one has been able to claim the item to the satisfaction of Mklvnd, there is now a video posted on Youtube so people can see what he found.
