Make it so!
I'm not necessarily interested in a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie—though I'm willing to keep an open mind—but mark me down as a very strong "yes, please" when it comes to the desire to see Patrick Stewart return to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, along with the rest of Next Generation. It's too early to say yet whether that's in the cards, but Stewart, at least, seems equally enthusiastic.Read More

Ain't No DISCO Like a Star Trek DISCO, 'Cause a Star Trek DISCO Don't Stop
We'll have plenty more DISCO shirts and bonding between my new favorite Star Trek trio to look forward to (I instantly loved Burnham-Tilly-Tyler forever), because Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season!Read More
The reason this compilation works so well is that within the context of their episodes, the scenes make perfect sense to the storyline. Cut up and scrambled around, however ... I can't stop grinning. Come, start your morning off right.Read More
A debate over Star Trek: Discovery has been raging in my social media feeds. Some Trek fans are euphoric about the way the new season is unfolding, while others proclaim that at this point they are already "hate-watching."Read More

For many, Star Trek: The Next Generation is the smartest and classiest Trek. But the show had plenty of misfires, along with some oft-repeated tropes. And Honest Trailers has compiled them into a hilarious reel.Read More
Last night's Star Trek: Discovery was not only amazing TV, but should also quell the fears of anyone who watched the first two episodes and worried that they couldn't tell from the series opener just what kind of show they were getting.

Here's the truly disappointing thing.
Last night was the night that Trekkies all over the world were waiting for! Star Trek: Discovery had its two-hour premiere! Two hours, you ask? Yes indeedly. If you were only watching the CBS broadcast, you only saw what ended up being the first half of the pilot.
