If you've been to our site before, then you know that we thoroughly enjoyed J.J. Abrams's version of Trek. That also includes the score. Michael Giacchino made the perfect emotional accompaniment to J.J's striking visuals. We just learned from ComingSoon.net that Michael will be returning to write the score for Star Trek XII or Star Trek 2 as some are calling it.
Star Trek fans know Linda Park as Hoshi Sato, the communications office aboard the NX-01. Now you can find her on stage in Arthur Miller's classic All My Sons from now until December 18th at the Matrix Theater in Los Angeles. All My Sons is about Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, who knowingly turned out defective airplane parts that caused the deaths of many men. Now, the past has come back to haunt their families. Linda has taken on the role of Ann Deever, daughter of Steve Deever.
We’re pleased to announce episode 16 of our “Life After Trek” podcast, this time featuring Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry. As you may know, Rod is the son Gene & Majel Roddenberry as well as the CEO of Roddenberry Productions. We got the chance to speak to Rod via phone interview to talk about his upcoming documentary Trek Nation (premiering Novmber 30th on Science 8PM ET) plus his work with Roddenberry Productions, The Roddenberry Foundation, & The Roddenberry Dive Team. Oh, and of course Star Trek. We had a blast recording this interview and Rod was a very gracious guest. To learn more about all things Roddenberry head over to their official website Roddenberry.com.
As an added bonus, this episode of Life After Trek is exactly 47 minutes long. That wasn't planned, no joke.CONTINUE READING >>
Ya know, maybe we should change the name of our blog to Shatspace Communique, because it seems like he's all we talk about. Heck, we're not complaing, The Shat is an omnipresent force that seems unstoppable. If you're looking for your quick Shatner fix this evening, check him out on Piers Morgan Tonight... tonight. That's on CNN at 9pm / 8pm central. We think Sir Billiam (still trying) is there to talk about his new album Seeking Major Tom, but you never really know where the conversation will lead. Actually, you do... to awesomeness.

In a bid to save your arm hair William Shatner & State Farm Insurance have joined forces to spread the word about the dangers of deep frying a turkey this holiday season. Ya' know, everyone including The Shat loves the moist deliciousness that comes from taking a 20lb frozen turkey and dumping it in boiling oil, but there's a hidden danger that comes with the golden brown poultry goodness. “I love to fry turkey and have been doing it for years but I am not immune to frying accidents,” says Shatner. “In fact, my family now gathers together to watch my mishaps. Several years ago I was even burned on my arms after accidently dropping the turkey in the hot oil. People need to remember that hot oil and turkey can be a dangerous combination.”CONTINUE READING >>
We've been a bit hesitant to post news about the upcoming sequel to J.J. Abrams's Star Trek simply because there's been a real lack of it. Sure, we've seen that Zachary Quinto is shifting into gear for his return as Spock and that Anton Yeltchin is excited about returning to his role as Chekov. Oh, and the news of Benicio Del Toro being courted for a possible villain role (more on that in a few days) but not much real news is being shared about Star Trek XII. I did find something today that I found at least somewhat newsworthy, it seems that the next installment of the J.J.verse is being pushed back from it's June 29th, 2012 release date to sometime in 2013.CONTINUE READING >>

According to Executive Producer & Cheif Technical Officer Stephen D'Angelo, Cryptic intended to release STO as a free-to-play MMO from the begriming, but Atari wouldn't have it. He tells IGN; "We've always wanted the game to be free-to-play, in fact we tried to make it free-to-play at the original launch, but our publisher didn't want us doing that so we didn't do that."
