Outlander Has a Lot in Common With a Beloved Star Trek: The Next Generation Episode

How a person mentally handles having lived so long a time in seemingly another world is what makes Outlander so interesting to watch, and every time I do, I’m reminded of a much-beloved episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation—one that touches on how its main character also deals with multiple lives and realities.

Star Trek: Discovery Changing Roddenberry’s “No Conflict” Mandate. That’s Okay, So Did Roddenberry.

Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, had a very specific vision of the future. By the time Star Trek: The Next Generation rolled around, he insisted on a story mandate: the conflict can never be between our main characters, because in Starfleet, petty squabbles are a thing of the past. Which is weird, because on the Original Series, Spock and McCoy were all about petty squabbles, and Scotty would punch you in the face if you trash talked about the Enterprise.

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.

Jonathan Frakes Will Play Star-Lord’s Father in Animated Guardians of the Galaxy

OF COURSE Star-Lord's dad is Riker. It all makes sense.

We didn't think it was likely that the animated Guardians of the Galaxy would introduce Star-Lord's father. The show follows the crew's adventures after the first movie, but adding Star-Lord's dad would likely put them at odds with James Gunn's movie sequel, which will do its own thing in that regard. However, Jonathan Frakes has now been cast to play that role in the cartoon.
