Today In Disappointing: William Shatner Cries “Misandry,” Proving That Fans Understand Kirk Better Than He Does
On Twitter yesterday, William Shatner got involved in a discussion about misogyny and its imaginary counterpart, "misandry" (you know, "reverse racism's" cousin?). What's interesting is that the discussion, as well as his disappointingly sexist comments, were the result of a fan tagging him in an article that the fan completely misunderstood.Read More
Thousands of fans turned out for Montreal Comic-Con July 8-10, many to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. Overall, the mood was positive, forward-looking, and particularly supportive of diversity in the franchise.

A few months ago we brought you an fun little story that concerned sending Star Trek action figures into space. Well, Trekkers, the dream has been realized. Logan Kugler launched a Kickstarter campaign to make his dream come true and wrote, "On May 5th 2012, I along with a team of engineering students from the University of Illinois sent the greatest starship captains to ever exist into space for the first time in reality. Discovery Channel was there to capture it." Can you imagine? From a little bit of fan fun, to Kickstarter, to the Discovery Channel. Technically, the figures only made it to the stratosphere but that works for me! Six cameras caught the trip of Captains Kirk and Picard, Riker, Data, and custom-made figures of J.J. Abrams and Roberto Orci. Oh and, they travelled on top of the Enterprise-D. I love nerds. (via Discovery)Read More

Nope. Still Not Happening.
I think this clearly opens up the possibility of a Mr. Potato Head-centered Toy Story spinoff, and that's either wonderful or terrible. Set to be released at this year's Toy Fair, a new line of Star Trek-themed Mr. Potato Heads will include not only the highly accurate representation of Captain James T. Kirk and the Klingon Kor (pictured above), but also Lt. Uhura and Mr. Spock. It does not say if Kirk and Spock come with moustaches for their evil counterparts, but surely you still have your old Mr. Potato Head moustache. Somewhere. Surely, you must have known this would happen someday, Star Trek Potato Heads.Read More
