Star Trek: Voyager

William Shatner Says, “A Woman’s Place Is in the Fridge,” Remains the Worst

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. But then William Shatner opened his mouth, and took us all back in time (not in a fun Voyage Home way) with a string of sexist jokes.

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.

How Does Your Favorite Star Trek Series Fare on the Bechdel Test?

Which series fares best? Hint: It's WAY cool.

A little over a year ago, with the help of a few other Trekkies I met through Tumblr, I took on a huge but super-fun project: running each and every live-action Star Trek episode—from The Original Series through Enterprise—through the Bechdel Test.

Star Trek: Voyager Producer Dishes on Seven of Nine

To Boldly Go

[Voyager] needed a kick in the ass. Creatively, we needed something. A Star Trek series, in my opinion, is only as good as its captain, and Captain Janeway was a great captain, but she didn't have her Spock or Data, really. We just didn't have that special science-fiction character like Spock or Data, the striving-to-be-human character. The idea of putting a Borg on board gave us a chance to have a wild child there. That was the metaphor, a wild child, and Janeway would be her mother and try to tame her and help make her human again. That was a new take on that kind of character. That's not to diminish the Doctor, Bob Picardo's character. He was great, but he really wasn't a foil to Janeway. He wasn't someone Janeway could play off of. -- Brannon Braga to StarTrek.com Braga goes on to call Kirk a sex addict. We'd classify him more in the horndog territory... like an honest and romantically successful Zap Brannigan. So... nothing like Zap Brannigan, I guess.

Here Is a Look at Jordan’s $1.5 Billion Star Trek Theme Park

To Boldly Go

It's always fun to find out about the geeky predilections of public figures, like the discovery that Jordan's King Abdullah is a Trekkie. A serious Trekkie. As in, King Abdullah's fundraising arm is donating money to build a Star Trek theme park and resort in his country. CBS, Paramount, and Amman's Rubicon Group Holding (which makes animated films), are all on board to design this thing. And it's only going to cost $1.5 billion. It's good to be the king!

Jeri Ryan on Her Triumphant Return to Sci-Fi: “This One Is Human”

What It Says On the Tin

Jeri Ryan, who was best known as the liberated Borg Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager, made a name for herself as a sci-fi actress before heading into the mainstream to do shows like Boston Public, Boston Legal, and most recently, Body of Proof. Her first big break was the UFO sci-fi conspiracy show Dark Skies (that was created to compete with The X-Files). But it's been years since Ryan has done anything in the sci-fi genre, and now she's going to be a guest star on SyFy's Warehouse 13 -- as a boring human. Well, maybe there's more to it than that.
