Star Trek: TOS
We’re super stoked to announce the launch of Bye Bye, Robot’s newest prints. Six new TOS lithographs!
How I picked this book
It started with the title. I don’t think anyone who has watched The Original Series can forget the moment in “Charlie X" when Uhura is singing in the rec room while accompanied by Spock on the Vulcan lyrette. Her voice and songs are a reminder of beauty in an environment built for functionality and protocol. Combined with the promise of cat-people1 I knew that this was the novel for me.CONTINUE READING >>
Our sister site, ByeByeRobot.com, just launched two fantastic new posters by artists Jeff Foster & Drew Johnson. In its first ever Star Trek: Deep Space Nine release, The Robot procured an impressionist style rendition of the beloved station. "Before it was DS9, it was Terok Nor" is the tagline for Jeff Foster's "Terok Nor" poster which features the station on a space field background with a subtle hint of the celestial temple.
We're huge fans of Mark Largent's special brand of 3D animated Star Trek virtual-felt covered puppet parodies and wanted to pass along the good news. Stalled Trek: Amutt Time is now available for the first time via digital download for $3.99. If you are looking for an easier way to grab a copy or just think that DVDs are so 1999, here's your opportunity. Many of you out there probably know Mark's work, but if this is your first time reading about it, check out our review of the DVD version of Amutt Time. In short, we love it!
That’s right you guys, the old girl is struttin’ her stuff in this gorgeous new poster by artist Mark Brayer, and published by Bye Bye, Robot. U.S.S. Enterprise is the second poster in Brayer’s vintage ships series for Bye Bye, Robot. Brayer’s love of book cover art from the mid to late 1900s is the basis for the retro design of this new ship’s portrait poster.
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. This was pre-internet days we're talking about. 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.
As we reported in February, William Shatner was on hand in Dallas to help kick off the Texas Lottery's official Star Trek scratch off game. The Shat helped draw 560 plus Trek fans in costume for a Guinness World Record attempt and drawings for thousands of dollars in prizes.
We recently got word of a pretty cool Trek event that's happening On April 7th (4/7, get it?). Let's put it this way; it involves Khan, the Enterprise, the SS Botany Bay and as many Trek fans as twitter and the interwebs can hold. 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.
If you have already heard about Hulu’s Free Star Trek Week, then you won’t see this article because you’ve been on your couch since the announcement watching it…like we have…and are not diligently checking your interwebs. But…if you haven’t heard about it, then listen up! Go grab some munchies, adjust your favorite recliner, and be prepared to enjoy non-stop Star Trek till the end of the month!!! (it deserved triple exclamation points, fer-sure)
You can watch your favorite series, or your favorite episodes…but if you’ve never watched (or hardly watched) Star Trek before and are overwhelmed about where to start, check out this list of excellent episodes. It pretty much hits it right on the nose with the suggestions.CONTINUE READING >>
