Shore Leave, one of the longest running fan operated conventions, is quickly approaching. We've never been to this particular con, but we have had fantastic reports the last two years thanks to The SciFi Diner's Miles McLoughlin. Be sure to check out the Shore Leave 31 & 32 reports to get an idea of what to expect. There's an interesting group of stars that visit Maryland every year and this time is no different. If you're a TOS fan (and who isn't?) Gary Lockwood & Sally Kellerman from "Where no man has gone before" will be on hand. Of course you'll know Gary from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Sally from the motion picture version of MASH as well as many other TV and motion picture appearances. On top of that, our favorite omnipotent being Q, John De Lancie, Star Trek authors Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore, David Mack, Keith DeCandido, Peter A. David and many others will also be on hand.CONTINUE READING >>
Shuttle Bridges, An Uber Galaxy Map, And An Alien Of The Week Request For Star Trek Online In This Month's Ask Cryptic
It's been a little while since we've reported on Cryptic's Star Trek Online MMO. Not that we don't have love for STO, we just have been focusing on other areas. The game has seen a few updates lately including Season 4 and we figured it was high-time that we covered a new instance of the Star Trek Online monthly series "Ask Cryptic". As usual, STO Executive Producer Dan Stahl answers fan questions that include tons about season 4, plus a few questions that peeked our interest. For instance, will the Defiant's pulse cannons be a playable ship weapon? Or, will you be able visit the bridge on your shuttle or captain's yacht? Also thrown into the mix;will the Tarmarians and other well known/liked "Aliens of the Week" make an appearance sometime soon? The answer? Absolutely! In fact, CBS has requested the very same thing. Expect to see some familiar faces in upcoming Series. Rock! Check out more of the questions & answers below.
Q: KBFLordKrueg Now that we have a beautifully redone Qo’noS, can we hope for more Klingon missions soon as well?CONTINUE READING >>
It seems lately that there has been more Shatner than you can wave a stick at. Well, get you're sticks out kids, The Shat is set to invade your televisions even more this month with the release of his long awaited documentary The Captains and a brand new season of his hit show Aftermath. We've been hearing about "Captains" for some time now, first learning about it in Vegas almost a year ago, and finally getting to see the extremely short trailer that was just released.
"I'm not Spock... That guy called me Spock" The Shat utters while traipsing down that all too familiar corridor in the Las Vegas Hilton. If there is any justice in the universe, you'll get to see my gigantic head in footage shot around Vegas Khhaaan! 2010. In fact, I had an extremely close call with Kirk and his camera crew while standing outside the Star Trek: The Experience panel last year. Shatner got within a foot or so of my tall, lanky frame and said very quietly to himself "I'm going this way", immediately turning in the opposite direction. Is it possible that I'm the only thing that frightens Kirk? But, I digress. The Captains will premiere on Epix July 21st. Check out the trailer below.CONTINUE READING >>
