  1. Lacking Time Machine, Scientists Study Heart Disease in the 24th Century Through Star Trek

    Welcome, to the World of Tomorrow!

    Can we study all future science through fiction about the future? Because I hear that we mastered eugenics in the '90s, maybe we could use that genetics knowledge to eradicate some cancers, etc.

    Captain's log: Checked in on NASA's quaint "space station."

  6. Here’s What Happened at the “Women of Trek Fandom” Panel at Star Trek: Las Vegas!

    "Ma'am" will do in a pinch, but they prefer "captain."

    Walking the floor at Star Trek: Las Vegas, the world's largest Star Trek convention, you can see the tradition of active female Trek fans is alive and well. This year's "Women in Trek Fandom" panel, hosted by Mary Czerwinski of DVD Geeks and Glue Guns and Phasers, was a chance to reflect on how far we've come and what still needs to happen to achieve equality in fandom, as well as in terms of on-screen representations and behind-the-camera roles.

  15. Ron Moore Fills Us In On What It Would Take To Bring Star Trek Back To TV

    Dammit Jim!

    Many of you know Ron Moore thanks to him bringing Battlestar Galactica back to television but less of you may be aware that he worked on several of the Star Trek series. He's got a few projects in the pipeline at the moment, one of them being A Knight's Tale drama series for ABC, but he recently weighed in on how to bring the sci-fi giant back to the small screen.

  16. That Time Star Trek’s Patrick Stewart & William Shatner Tweeted About Horrible Time Warner Cable Service

    Dammit Jim!

    Last week, I was delighted to find out Star Trek: The Next Generation's Sir Patrick Stewart was not only on Twitter, but his username was @SirPatStew. I marveled at him having the same problem many Brooklyn, New York residents have (he recently moved there) - horrible service from cable companies. In this particular instance, Stewart was complaining about Time Warner Cable and it just so happens William Shatner has been shaking his fist at the same company from the West Coast.

  17. Television Is Weird: Behind the Scenes of Some of Our Favorite Shows

    Oh Hollywood

    Flavorwire's been on a kick lately of rounding up funny, weird, or just fourth wall breaking pictures from movies, and now, television. In most of the less effects heavy shows, this just means getting to see the cameras. But on the genre shows... man. It's a whole 'nother level. Any Muppets out there wishing to maintain belief in their autonomy may want to skip this post. And when you're done, hit up Flavorwire for lots more pictures from Lost, Dexter, Game of Thrones and more.

  18. A Delightful Animated Version Of Star Trek’s Original Opening Titles

    The Final Frontier

    Star Trek Alternate Title Intro from The Quintek Group on Vimeo.

    You probably know about Star Trek: The Animated Series but this is something quite different. "This animation is an homage to one of the most groundbreaking sci-fi television shows ever to beam down to Earth," writes The Quintek Group, "Our goal was to try and capture the essence of what we found most enjoyable from the series for building this faux opening to this classic show." It's short of course because the original opening was short but the team did a great job producing really cool images. (via Geeks Are Sexy) Previously in Star Trek

  19. George Takei: No More Cameos From the Original Star Trek In the New Movies

    The Final Frontier

    Besides the fact alone that it was a great movie with a great cast and a great story, one of the things that gave J.J. Abrams' Star Trek that extra dose of credibility was the appearance of the original Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy, reprising his role from the original series. Now that Abrams is working on its sequel, fans have been wondering if a similar storyline will be involved and we'll see another cameo from another cast member from the original series. But the original Sulu, George Takei, doesn't seem to think this is the case, saying that there has been a "policy decision" not to do that anymore. But what about from the another Star Trek series?

  20. That Lost Star Trek Script Will Be Filmed, and the Writer Wants Shatner (But Not As Kirk)!

    The Final Frontier

    Well, it's a great day to be the author of a lost Star Trek episode. Not long ago, we told you about Norman Spinrad, a writer on Star Trek: The Original Series who was commissioned by Gene Roddenberry to write a script that would provide a comeback opportunity for Milton Berle. It was never made, and Spinrad thought it was lost forever until a fan approached him with a copy of it. Now, 45 years later, the fan-produced web series, Star Trek: Phase II, has announced that they'll be shooting Spinrad's script, and the writer has a new actor in mind to play the role meant for Berle -- William Shatner.
