Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Mayim Bialik Explains How Science and Religion Can Co-Exist, Basically Summing Up My Entire Belief System

As someone who loves science and also believes in a Higher Power, it is often difficult to be in conversations with people who lean more heavily in one direction or the other. I've spoken with scientifically-minded folks for whom the concept of "God" is unnecessary. I've spoken to religious folks for whom the question of "why?" is infinitely more important than the question of "how?" In this video, actress and scientist Mayim Bialik discusses how the two coexist for her.

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

Welcome, to the World of Tomorrow!

Deep Space Nine Turns 20 Today and You Should Watch It Tonight

Has it really been two decades already? On January 3, 1993, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine made its debut, making this the twentieth birthday of perhaps the most underrated show in the Trek canon. Just one more year until the show can go out for drinks with friends at Quark's Bar and wake up with no eyebrows and a throbbing Romulan Ale hangover. Until that embarrassing incident, allow us to make a brief argument for the show, and why you should spend this evening getting reacquainted with it.

Star Trek Actor Michael Dorn Gives Details On A Possible Worf Spin-Off

Make It So

I don't know about you but Worf was one of the best characters to come out of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I was glad he continued on to Deep Space Nine but since the TNG films wrapped, there's some serious Woft withdrawal on my part. That's why I'm so excited actor Michael Dorn is trying to figure out if he can get the green light for his own spin-off! Read on for some details.

German News Crew Confuses Star Trek Rebel Logo with Navy SEAL Emblem

There are perils associated with apparently using Google Image Search to get material for your official news broadcast. When a German television news channel, N24, was reporting a story on Navy SEAL Team Six, the unit which spearheaded the operation which ultimately killed Osama bin Laden, the channel accidentally used a fan-made logo for the Maquis, an anti-Cardassian rebel group which originally appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, in place of the SEAL Team Six emblem. As TrekMovie points out, there are a few differences between the logos: "[The newscaster] didn’t seem to notice (or care) that the skull in question was from a Klingon and included a bolted-on eyepatch. He and N24 also appear undeterred by the emblem’s inclusion of a phaser, 3 Klingon bat’leth swords and the word 'Maquis.'" He also made on-air comments that acknowledged the Maquis logo and seemed to treat it as the real thing: "And they also have the ‘Team Six,’ that carried out the mission. They don’t have the skull in their emblem for nothing." Honest mistake. (TrekMovie via io9 via Neatorama)
