Star Trek: TNG
Before LeVar was the chief engineer (or helmsman for the matter) on the Enterprise, he was inspiring children to read on Reading Rainbow. LeVar continues his fight for child literacy today by joining several other celebrities in a new PSA for the non-profit Reading Is Fundamental. The quirky, and well made, PSA consists of a video sequence featuring children's literature heroes and a song produced by The Roots with vocal support from Jack Black, Chris Martin, John Legend, Jim James, Jason Schwartzman, Nate Ruess, Melanie Fiona, Carrie Brownstein, Regina Spektor and Consequence. LeVar handles the voice over and appears as a cameo in the video.
It’s getting closer to June and that means closer to BayouCon in Lake Charles LA. They have some fabulous guests lined up including J.G. Hertzler (DS9 – Martok), Robert O’Reilly (DS9 – Chancellor Gowron), and Larry Nemecek (Author of Star Trek The Next Generation Companion and the TNG Concordance). Besides all the cool stuff we previously told you BayouCon is putting on (like J.G & Robert in full Klingon costume) we’re pleased to let you know about the latest addition to the cool-stuff lineup…A Klingon Breakfast! And it’s presented by yours truly. That’s right, Subspace Communique will be presenting J.G Hertzler and Robert O’Reilly to a group of 30 excited fans who get to chat with the
Klingons guys while they spend time at each table. Besides chatting one-on-one, the breakfast’s attendees will be able to take pictures with J.G. and Robert…so don’t forget your cameras!
What do a telepath, a Klingon, and a god-like being have in common? Well, it's not those fabulous bouffant hairdos. No, in fact it's quite the opposite and more Canadian.. That's right woodchuck-chuckers, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, & John de Lancie will be headlining the upcoming Fan Expo Canada in Vancouver. Not only will you get to see some of your favorite TNG's stars, but the expo features stars from all across the scifi universe. Stargate SG-1, SGU, Battlestar Galactica, Sanctuary, Smallville, & the freakin' The Hulk, just to name a few. Check out all the details below.
Captain Jean Luc Picard is better know for his diplomacy and wit than his sheer brawn and fighting prowess. Not to say that he didn't throw down on occasion, but he was quicker to talk and think than punch an advisory in the throat. We'll leave the double jump kicks to Captain Kirk. It appears though, that Patrick Stewart would rather double jump kick a Gorn than face a crazed actor in a Shakespearian play. In an interview for Radio Times (via Belfast Telegraph), the on-screen Captain reveals that fight scenes on the stage frighten him.
As we reported back in January, Star Trek: The Next Generation - Next Level was released on Blu-ray. The four episode sampler was the first example of TNG remastered and in high-def. We just learned that a date is being reported for the full remastered first season of Picard & his crew and we could be seeing it as early as July.
Star Trek’s Q, otherwise known as John De Lancie, is the newest guest added to the Dallas Comic Con Roster. As we previously reported, Patrick Stewart is also attending. How perfect is it now that the two polar opposite characters of TNG are going to both be represented. We’re hoping that they will share stage time on a two man panel so we can see a little of the old Q vs. Picard shenanigans we all love.

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.
Our good friend and Trek author / historian extraordinaire, Larry Nemecek, just released the final video in his interview series with Ira Steven Behr. As you all know, Ira was the showrunner & executive producer for much of Deep Space Nine's 7 season run. Larry recorded the interview last year and slowly released it in a 4 part series on Youtube. Throughout the interview Larry & Ira discuss his time working on Syfy's Alphas, The 4400, and of course his time in TNG & Deep Space Nine.
What do a boy-genius and two Klingons have in common? Well besides the obvious (yeah, we don't get it either...) they'll be in Toronto for the 26th annual Polaris Convention this July. Wil Wheaton, J.G. Hertzler, and Robert O'Reilly are slated for the event scheduled for July 6th-8th (2012) at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel. We'd love to make the "trek" to the Great White North, and if past Polaris Conventions are any indication, they'll be adding more guest as we draw closer to July.CONTINUE READING >>
