We all know how secretive J.J. Abrams can be with any film he's directing. As a fan, I can appreciate this. I'm one of the few (it seems) that still likes to be surprised when I drop $47 to see the latest schlop that Hollywood has to offer (I'm not putting J.J's Star Trek in the schlop category). Although, running a Star Trek website and reporting on the most recent Star Trek 2 happenings just adds to the problems, but I digress...
If you're reading this site then you probably know by now that we're huge Deep Space Nine fans. What can we say, we love it. We also love following the goings-on of the DS9 cast... Not to mention that most of our Life After Trek interviews have been with former DS9'ers, as well. Let's see, we have Chase, Armin, Max, Aron, Jeffery, Tony, & Natalija. Not a bad line-up, if I do say so myself. One person we would love to talk to is Alexander Siddig; Dr. Bashir, to you and me. So Alexander, if you're out there, hit us up. We'd love to interview you. In lieu of that, we just got word that his new film Inescapable has just wrapped shooting and is headed to post production. Big thanks to Subspace Comms reader Sheri for filling us in.
It’s March 26th, and today is Leonard Nimoy’s 81st birthday!! Happy Birthday Mr. Nimoy!! I don’t know why, but I always feel like I need to be more grown up when I write about Leonard Nimoy. It’s not like I respect him more than the rest of the cast, but his personal grace and demeanor seem to signal my brain to “stand up tall”, “make good eye contact” and “stop using slang”. Of course…that’s all out the window tonight.CONTINUE READING >>
As many of you know, we've been covering the ever evolving "Days Missing" IP from our friends at Roddenberry Entertainment for some time now. We just got word that they are partnering with Benderspink to co-develop the award-winning graphic novel series for television and film, marking the first TV show based on a Roddenberry property since Star Trek: Enterprise.
A great idea if you don’t know what to give your fellow Star Trek fan would be to get him/her a collector’s box of playing cards!
This box looks really cool with the text “Beam me up” written all over it. This tin box is also marked up with good old Kirk and the cards are all marked up with images from the original series. This deck is available through neatoshop.com.CONTINUE READING >>
Hey out there, in case you haven’t heard, it’s William Shatner’s birthday! Yah, we spelled out his name for that. It’s special. It’s March 22nd, his 81st birthday and he’s showing NO signs of slowing down…or aging, for that matter. I gotta say, he looks fantastic on and off screen!! I hope I look that good when I’m 81.
Life After Trek Podcast Episode 19 Geek Nation Tours Special Featuring Larry Nemecek & Teras Cassidy
We’re pleased to announce episode 19 of our “Life After Trek” podcast, the Geek Nation Tours Special, featuring Larry Nemecek & Teras Cassidy. Larry & Teras sit down with us to talk about their upcoming Geek Nation Tours project "Exploring Trek Sites: Hollywood To Vegas With Larry Nemecek". Born from a meeting at Vegas Khhaaan! 2011, Larry & Teras have partnered to offer a tour just prior to, and including, Vegas. In this tour Larry will guide the group around tons of Star Trek related sites located in Southern California. Some of the sites they will be visiting are the gardens used as Starfleet Academy, Paramount Studios, the site of the Kirk vs. Gorn battle (with a visit from the “Gorn himself”, Bobby Clark), and many many more. Check out the Geek Nation Tours website for more info.
It's hard to believe that it's been nearly a year since the launch of Brent Spiner's popular webseries, Fresh Hell. If you're not familiar with it, Fresh Hell follows Brent as he's reeling from hitting rock bottom. What caused his sudden meteoric fall and societal pariah status? Well, we only know it as "the incident". According to the first episode, his situation is so bad that OJ Simpson has a better chance of a career recovery. Yeah, it's pretty funny.
We've been making the rounds lately on a few of our favorite podcasts. Heck, what can I say, it's always an honor when someone asks us back to their show. Huh, maybe I wasn't as big of space-douche (also know as a Pakled) last time as I thought I was... Anyway, I had the pleasure of being on another installment of one of our favs;Geek Fights. What's the topic this time, you ask? Well, Damon and the fellas served up the most mediocre Star Trek episode. We hashed this bad boy out for over 2 hours and it wasn't nearly as easy as it sounds. Think about it. Mediocre. Not good, not bad, just somewhere in the middle. We had tons of fun, though, and think that you'll really enjoy listening to this episode.
