Roddenberry Entertainment Launches Big At New York Comic-Con With Two Graphic Novels And Special Panel
New York Comic-Con is nearly upon us and Roddenberry Entertainment has a packed schedule for the event. Premiering two new graphic novels and throwing a pizza party for fans during the their panel, The R will be doing The Big Apple right. The Roddenberry Entertainment Panel / pizza party will begin at 7:45 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11 in Room 1A04. Featuring clips from both Trek Nation and White Room 02B3, the panel will feature producer Trevor Roth to answer fan questions. If that isn't enough Roddenberry Entertainment will be premiering the graphic novel version of its wildly popular Days Missing comic series as well as a brand new novel entitled Worth.
If there are few things in the world that live up to they hype built around them, Trek Nation has got to be one of the shinning examples. We've been writing about the the Roddenberry Entertainment documentary for years now and after seeing it in November of last year, it was definitely worth the wait. Now, you can check out the film twice at the biggest licensed Star Trek convention on the planet.
For those of you that got the chance to see Trek Nation again (or for the first time) at San Diego ComicCon, we're jealous. For everyone else, the Roddenberry Entertainment documentary is now available for digital download via iTunes, Vudu, XBOX Live, and YouTube. Rod Roddenberry made the announcement today via his Twitter account.
As we reported earlier, Trek Nation made its international debut today at SCI-FI-LONDON. On top of that, we just received word that Trek Nation will be heading for its North American theatrical debut at this year's San Diego ComicCon. If that wasn't enough, the showing is completely free, doesn't require a ComicCon pass, and will be immediately followed by a Q&A session with Rod Roddenberry. Can I say it for all of us?... That's pretty freakin' cool! The event will be held at the historic Birch North Park Theatre on July 12th followed by the aforementioned Q&A session, plus a special meet-and-great at West Coast Tavern. As always Roddenberry Entertainment wants Trek fans to show their love and come dressed in full regalia. So all you Borg, Vulcans, and even Pakleds get suited-up for this special event.
"Trek Nation" & Roddenberry Entertainment's "White Room 02B3" To Debut Internationally At SCI-FI-LONDON
As many of you know, we've been following Rod Roddenberry's documentary Trek Nation for the past few years. Also like many of you, we absolutely loved the film. Now, UK Trek fans can experience the film up close and personal as it makes its international debut at this year’s annual SCI-FI-LONDON film festival May 7th. Along with Trek Nation, the much anticipated Roddenberry Entertainment original production White Room 02B3 will make its world debut the same night. We first heard of White Room back at Vegas Khhaaan! 2011 when Rod Roddenberry took the stage to discuss the groundbreaking 360-degree technology behind the film.
Rod Roddenberry's long anticipated and widely acclaimed documentary Trek Nation, directed by Scott Colthorp, is re-airing this month on Science. According to the official Trek Nation website: Thanks to tremendous response, Trek Nation will be airing in the Pacific time zone December 18th at 6pm and again at 9pm, then on December 20th at 1am. If you're in the Eastern time zone, it will air December 18th at 9pm, December 19th at 12am and again at 4am.
So kids, one more day until the release of Trek Nation! ... Yeah, we're excited too. If you've listened to our interview with Rod Roddenberry, you know that there's literally days of extra footage that didn't make it into this cut of the film. Not B-roll either, but fantastic interviews and features that could easily make Trek Nation an on-going TV series. In an effort to get this awesome footage out to fans, Trek Nation director Scott Colthorp is releasing episodes of a new web series called Trek Nation Director's Log via Youtube. The first four episodes are now available and feature interviews with Sir Patrick Stewart, Nichelle Nichols, composer Brian Langsbard, and fan Lydia Chilton. We know her as the Khan girl from Vegas 2010...
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.
The long awaited release of the Star Trek documentary Trek Nation is getting closer and if you're like me, you can't wait. Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry has been working on the film for some time now and from what we've seen and heard, it's been an amazing journey for him. In the most recent trailer, exclusively released to the Perez Hilton website, Rod talks about his father Gene & the Trek legacy; "It wasn't until after he passed away that I realized that Star Trek actually touched people." The new clip also shows the lovely Nichelle Nichols and clips of an interview with Star Wars creator George Lucas.
