Trek Culture Review: Mark R. Largent's 3D Animated Trek Puppet Parody "Stalled Trek: Amutt Time" DVD
Earlier this year we wrote an article about a 3D animated puppet parody of Star Trek called Stalled Trek that’s featured on a web-series hosted by a one-eyed alien called Paunk! The Paunk! Show, as it’s aptly titled, is a pilot episode that snowballed into a full-blown 15 minute parody of the well know Trek episode “Amok Time”, called “Amutt Time”, now available on DVD.
Wired's Underwire blog recently got the chance to talk with Ronald D. Moore about his experience on Star Trek: The Next Generation. They cover the full gambit of Ron's time on TNG and it's a fantastic interview that's sure-to-please any TNG or Ron D. Moore fan. We grabbed a quick excerpt of our favorite part of the article, where Ron describes one of his first encounters with Gene. You can check it out below. Be sure to read the full article here.
Short but sweet! …short story…sweet news.
Turns out that on an upcoming episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon is making a new “Fun With Flags” webisode, this time focusing on the flags of Star Trek. While it’s not totally clear how Wil and LeVar will play into it, we’re guessing we won’t be disappointed.
Hey you guys, there’s a new Captain’s Log available from our pal over at Massively, Terilynn Shull . This time she has put together a bunch of great tips and info, specifically focused on low-tier ships, for all the new STO players.
Even though I can’t seem to find a completely definitive answer to the actual date of your birth, I’d like to say Happy Birthday you wonderful show, you!
What can I say that hasn’t been said before? How do you wish a TV show Happy Birthday? Well …
Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) has been up to a bunch of new stuff lately. (How’s that for a totally professional sounding opener?) Part of the reason for all of the new activities is the excitement of TNG’s 25th anniversary, this year. Because of this milestone celebration she has begun attending conventions again, much to fans’ delight. You see, she’s been hard to find on the convention circuit all of these years mostly because of her devotion to theatre and the craft of acting.
We’re pleased to announce the official release of Bye Bye, Robot’s eight newest posters. If you attended Vegas Khhaaan this year and stopped by the Bye Bye, Robot booth you had the inside scoop and saw them (early) in person. Maybe you were even there while Ira Steven Behr (writer of TNG’s “Captains’s Holiday”) signed a copy of the new “Escape to Risa” poster. I know I was, and it was a blast! Well, for the rest of humanity (and extraterrestrials, alike), who didn’t have the pleasure of spending a week in Vegas reveling in all things Trek, we’re here to tell you all about the new posters.CONTINUE READING >>
We’re pleased to announce episode 21 of our “Life After Trek” podcast, featuring Paul McGillion. Many of you know Paul from his work on Stargate: Atlantis as character Carson Beckett, but did you know that he also had a cameo in J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek and was even considered for the character of Scotty?...but I’m getting ahead of the game here. Being huge fans of Paul from his time on Atlantis and A Dog’s Breakfast (just to name a few), we were thrilled to chat with him to find out what he’s been up to lately.CONTINUE READING >>
Dude, for real?!?! Yep, that’s the scuttlebutt! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for this news since I was a kid. If they get in high gear, I may actually fall within the age-range to see Warp Drive.
What’s this all about? Well, back in ’94 Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre put forth a concept for a real warp drive which at that time was impossible, mainly due to the immense fuel requirements.
