So, have you ever wanted sliding doors? Okay, I know, that's a silly question. You're a Star Trek fan, of course you want sliding doors. We'll we've found an actual DIY project that can bring a bit of the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th centuries to your home. These doors are definitely more Enterprise inspired than say TNG, because you have to push a button to open them, but you've got to start some where. It seems that all you need is an air compressor, sliding door accessories, pneumatic tubes and hoses, and some know-how and you're set. So, maybe you'll need a few more things than that, but still amazingly cool and trek-tastic none-the-less.CONTINUE READING >>
So, it's been about a week now since Starbase Indy 2010 concluded for another year and we're just now pulling together all of our photos and video of this fantastic fan run con. We had a blast at Indy and would highly recommend it to everyone, especially you, our readers. If you're like us and simply dig a great time hanging in a comfortable environment with like minded Trek fans who love to have fun, SBI is the place for you. Since SBI is a smaller convention, than say a Creation event or Comic-con, it's a much more intimate setting with both the fans and the stars. Honestly, we can't say enough good things about Starbase Indy the convention, as well as the fine folks that run the con. We'll be back next year!CONTINUE READING >>
All of you know Alexander Siddig as our kindly Dr. Julian Bashir aboard Deep Space Nine, but Alexander has had quite a film career after leaving the sick bay. From serious film roles in "Syriana" & "Kingdom of Heaven" to scifi / fantasy films "like Clash of the Titans" & "Reign of Fire", Alexander has yet to make a permanent move back to the small screen & episodic TV, until now. Starting early next year you'll be able to catch Alexander in the ITV series "Primeval". Launching in season 4 (or series 4, as the British say) he'll be joining and running the ARC as Phillip Burton. Not familiar with "Primeval"? The show follows a team of five scientists tasked with investigating the appearance of temporal anomalies across Great Britain through which prehistoric and futuristic creatures enter the present.CONTINUE READING >>
