If you're like me, Starlog Magazine has a very special place in your heart. Outside of Star Trek Communicator, Starlog was the one way to find out all the current info regarding Star Trek, Star Wars, and any other scifi television series or movie.

Unfortunately, Starlog ceased operations in April of 2009, but its memory lives on in the form of 20 years of issues being available through The Internet Archive.

That's right kids, TrekTweets.com is launching a "Space Seed" tweet event that lets fans get together and talk about a specific episode all in real time.

In a fit of "this is probably a bad idea, but we're going to spend the money anyway" the Internal Revenue Service created a poorly executed training video that parodies a certain scifi series that starts with the word "Star" and ends with "Trek". CBS News gained access to the video through the Freedom of Information Act after the IRS earlier refused to turn over a copy to the congressional committee that oversees tax issues: House Ways and Means.
