We’re pleased to announce the tenth episode of our “Life After Trek” podcast, featuring Vaughn Armstrong. Many of you will remember Vaughn as Admiral Maxwell Forest from Star Trek: Enterprise, but Vaughn has also played countless characters throughout the Trek universe. From TNG to Voyager, Vaughn has played a myriad of Klingons, plus a Borg, Romulans, Cardassians, Hirogen, etc., etc. We had the pleasure of spending time with Vaughn at BayouCon this year and he was kind enough to sit down and tell us about his life after trek.CONTINUE READING >>
If you happen to be “across the pond” between now and September you will have the wonderful opportunity to see Sir Patrick Stewart perform at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, in a modern day production of “The Merchant of Venice”
The London Evening Standard describes the play thusly; Set in modern Las Vegas, it has the dash of Ocean's Eleven, the verve of Legally Blonde and a demented delightfulness all of its own. Yet it's still palpably Shakespeare's protean drama about racial intolerance and the dark side of capitalism.CONTINUE READING >>
Starz Entertainment has announced that Nana Visitor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and John DeLancie (Next Gen, DS9, Voy) will be among the guest stars in their new 10-episode, hour-long series, “Torchwood: Miracle Day”. For those unfamiliar with the show, "Torchwood" was created by Russell T Davies. The series is a spin-off from Davies' 2005 revival of the long-running science fiction program "Doctor Who". We were kinda hoping that a Bajoran and a Omnipotent being were new additions to the show's characters, but no luck...CONTINUE READING >>

Patrick Explains; "Right up until 1987, when I went to Hollywood to start filming Star Trek: The Next Generation, if you didn't go to the Royal Shakespearan Company you'd never heard Patrick Stewart"
When asked if there had been a highlight in his career, Patrick added; "It would have to be Star Trek: The Next Generation... After that series was such a huge success, which it was immediately, everything was changed for me."CONTINUE READING >>

In something that is complete news to us, Brent Spiner has just launched episode 1 & 2 of his brand new web series "Fresh Hell". We saw the announcement from the big man himself via his popular twitter feed. In the maiden episode, we learn that Spiner (who plays himself) is reeling from something only known as the "The Incident" that has sent him from super stardom to rock bottom. Sitting in his lonely apartmenet, Brent watches a TV talk show that implies that OJ Simpson has a better chance of a career recovery than him. It's pretty funny stuff.CONTINUE READING >>
