    Things We Saw Today

    Best Kindle cover ever. None others come close. Etsy seller GeekifyInc has also made tablet covers that resemble H.P. Lovecraft's The Necronomicon, the Red Book of Westmarch from the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and To Serve Man from The Twilight Zone. (/Film)

  2. New Star System Discovered — It’s Crazy Far But the Third-Closest to Us

    Space is huuuuuge, but it gets a tiny bit smaller each time we discover something new that we can name, classify, and tell everyone about. The latest is exciting, because it's been a very long time since we've seen anything like it. It's a new star system -- a field of stars revolving around one another -- and it's the closest one we've found in nearly a century. It's also the third-closest to our Sun. While we've been busy demoting our own Solar System's planets into ice dwarfs, then letting William Shatner name the moons, this binary system's been floating out there beyond our knowledge. Until now. Hit the jump to find out how.

  3. Tina Fey Says “No Way” to Hosting the Oscars

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    "I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman—the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way." Tina Fey, asked whether her Golden Globes hosting gig and an endorsement by William Shatner might lead to her and Amy Poehler hosting the Oscars next year. Told that the interviewer "was hoping for at least 'a one in a million chance,'" Fey responded "I wish I could tell you there was." Welp. There you go. 2015, maybe?

  4. The Nerds Win! Plutonian Moons Have Been Named

    First the SETI Institute put it up for vote, then the geeks and nerds swarmed the Internet, and now it's as certain as it can be before the International Astronomical Union (IAU) makes the final call: The names of last two moons of Pluto have been chosen, courtesy of 450,324 votes and William Shatner. And the Plutonian award goes to....

  6. William Shatner Leads the Charge to Name Pluto’s Moons

    We should have known! When SETI announced that the public could vote to name the fourth and fifth moons of Pluto, they also allowed voters to suggest their own. Given the demographic of astronomy and sci-fi fans, this new twist in the space-time continuum should have been inevitable: William Shatner rallied Star Trek fans to vote for the added name of Vulcan -- and now it's winning! Read on to learn about the other contenders.

He's already talked to William Shatner, jammed with the Barenaked Ladies, and tweeted a Valentine while in space. Today at 4pm ET he'll be taking questions during a Reddit Ask Me Anything. Our first question: Why you so awesome, Commander Hadfield?

  9. William Shatner Thinks J.J. Abrams Has Gone to the Dark Side

    It Came From Outer Space

    Willam Shatner is not taking J.J. Abrams taking Star Wars sitting down. Which is to say he seems pretty disappointed that the director of two Star Trek movies is now in charge of the next Star Wars movie.

  10. Upvote: William Shatner Calls Reddit on Racist/Sexist Posts, Does So on Reddit

    We love Reddit here at Geekosystem, but sometimes the deep, dark recesses of the site can get a little frightening due to racist, sexist, or otherwise abusive posts and the championing thereof. One man has chosen to boldly go where many have gone before and complained about the site's offensive content, but when that man is William Shatner, people listen.

  11. Google Lets You Hangout On The International Space Station, Ask Astronauts All The Things You’ve Always Wondered

    Yesterday, we listened to William Shatner talk about life on the International Space Station (ISS) with astronaut Chris Hadfield, and it was pretty great. Why should Kirk have all the fun, though? Chances are you've got some things you'd like to know about what it's like to be an astronaut, too. Well, now is your chance to pick the brains of people whose lives are more awesome than yours, because they live in space, because later this month, NASA will be hosting a Google Hangout live from the ISS, and they'll be answering your questions while they do. So if you've ever wanted to know what flavor of astronaut ice cream is always left over after a mission or who the worst snorer in Earth orbit is, this is your time.

  12. Watch William Shatner Phone the International Space Station to Talk With Astronaut Chris Hadfield

    Reality is set to become a bit more like fiction this morning. William Shatner, as in Captain James Tiberius Kirk of Star Trek fame, will be calling the International Space Station to speak with astronaut Chris Hadfield at 10:40AM ET. If that doesn't make you just a little bit giddy, you're probably sick or something. It gets better, though. You can watch a live stream of the event after the jump.

  13. Real Live Canadian William Shatner to Chat (Real) Live With Real Live Canadian Astronaut

    It Came From Outer Space

    It was a match made on Twitter, between William Shatner and Commander Chris Hadfield, between an incredulous Canadian who played television's boldest space captain, and a completely credulous spaceman who's due to become the first Canadian to command the International Space Station soon. But the two are ready to take their relationship off of Twitter and to an equally public space: a live-streamed conference call between the Earthbound actor who inspired so many real astronauts, and the astronaut who's inspiring a lot of earthbound folks with his dedication to social media.

  14. Star Trek’s Captain Kirk Tweets At CSA’s Commander Hadfield

    To Boldly Go

    It's one thing to see science and science-fiction collide in something like the real sonic screwdriver, but it's another when characters are involved. Star Trek's own Captain Kirk, William Shatner, was recently spotted tweeting at the Canadian Space Agency's Commander Chris Hadfield. About space. While Hadfield was actually in space headed for the International Space Station. It doesn't get much better than this, folks. (Why Evolution is True via Tipster Rebecca) Previously in Star Trek

  16. Kate Mulgrew Invokes Wrath of the Nerd Titans by Stating There Were Only Two Star Trek Captains

    To Boldly Go

    The identity of the best captain to ever helm the Enterprise in a Star Trek show is one of the most contentious in the fandom, and certainly the actors who play those five captains have been known to dabble in the controversy from time to time. But Kate Mulgrew, the only female captain of the franchise, may have just shown us that she has the biggest... ah... warp cores.

  17. William Shatner Is Making A Xena Documentary, Starts By Calling Its Fans “Needy”

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    I'm a die-hard Trekker but that doesn't mean I have to love everyone who's ever acting in the long-running saga. For every George Takei or Wil Wheaton, there's a William Shatner. The Star Trek actor has certainly made a niche for himself in recent years acting as the spokesperson for Priceline and performing in other comedic offerings but he's also turning into a documentarian. Previously he directed The Captains, a film more suited to his expertise, and a Trek fan documentary called Get a Life, but now he's set his sights on fans of Xena: Warrior Princess and it's safe to say he's out of his depth.

  19. Yes, There’s a Shatner “Impression,” But Leonard Nimoy Covers Even Cooler Stuff In This Video

    To Boldly Go

    Here is what you need to know about this interview with Leonard Nimoy from Hero Complex: Yes, there is an "impression" of his Star Trek co-star William Shatner, and it is in the very last couple of minutes. But there is a ton of Trekkie gold in this interview -- which lasts about 15 minutes, so plan accordingly -- like how Nimoy came up with the "Live long and prosper" hand gesture and which episodes of the show he likes to poke fun at. A perfect way to spend the last few minutes of a Friday before a holiday weekend! (via Hero Complex) Previously in Star Trek

  20. Star Trek Captains Kirk & Picard To Travel In Space, For Real, As Action Figures

    To Boldly Go

    Captain Kirk and Captain Picard have shared screen-time before in the beloved Star Trek franchise but now they'll travel to space together in real life. No, actors William Shatner and Sir Patrick Stewart won't be boarding a space craft, their action figures will.
