Star Trek: The Beginning

I can't corroborate this account of how JJ Abrams ended up directing the recent Star Trek films, but this is allegedly what happened. If you know different, sound off in the comments and I'll correct the article as appropriate.

In 2006, CBS and Paramount split into two distinct companies, rather than being two divisions of …

Star Trek New Movie Memorabilia

If you're a collector of Star Trek memorabilia, you may have noticed that there's not a lot of merchandise available that relates to the new movies.

Ever wondered why (if you even noticed)?

It comes down to there being some bad blood between Paramount Studios, which owns the rights to the movies and CBS (US …

Star Trek Beyond

It's now been confirmed that Idris Elba has signed onto Star Trek Beyond (the third in the new movie franchise) as the main antagonist.

Simon Pegg (Scotty) is co-writing the screenplay and, while little is known about Elba's character, Pegg says he is "a really interesting, complex character."

Star Trek Into Darkness

A friend (who shall remain nameless!), who's a Classic Series fan, recently mentioned that he'd finally made time to sit down and watch Star Trek Into Darkness.

When Enterprise first aired on Sky back in 2001, I was underwhelmed. That title song nearly killed my watching it there and then, but I did stick with the series for a few episodes. Until I got bored with the bad stories.

Many years later, when Enterprise came out on DVD (or here for

Shooting was originally scheduled for May but has been pushed back till October. The production is being financed by a Kickstarter project. The initial goal was …

Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock

I originally posted this article on Home Cinema Addict but since it's Star Trek related, it seemed fitting to repost it here:

Leonard Nimoy, an icon of Science Fiction died today in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, California, aged 83. He had been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He revealed he was suffering from the disease …

Star Trek Blu-Ray The Rebirth of Star Trek

By: Andrew Hawnt

Could it be true? It looks as though the unthinkable has happened- a new Star Trek movie that will bring the franchise back from the edge of oblivion. After Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek: Nemesis failed to set the box office alight, Star …

If you're of my vintage, you'll have grown up watching original runs of the original Star Trek episodes. In fact, "The Devil in the Dark" episode was the very first program on TV I saw in color!

People seem to have the greatest allegiance to the show they grew up with. It was Next Gen …
