Dude...we're watching live space coverage right now...as we type...*excited giggles* If you can't listen to it live or if you missed it, you can go here to listen to all of the saved audio for the STS-133 Shuttle Mission including the wakeup calls.

Vegas Khhaaan! 2011 Guest Roster Thus Far. Will All Five Captains Attend?

Vegas Khhaaan! 2011 Guest Roster Thus Far. Will All Five Captains Attend?

Oh, Vegas Khhaaan! your superior intellect and super human looks are hard for us to resist. We had a blast last year covering the Official Star Trek Las Vegas Convention, meeting our readers and hanging with friends new and old. This year is setting up to be just as much fun. It's the 45th anniversary of Star Trek, and we've heard a rumor from an inside source that Creation is trying their hardest to land Avery Brooks and Scott Bakula to complete the full captain set. We have to say, that would be magically epic. Of course, Khhaaan! is always up to no good. It's all cordial and full of smiles until he tries to steal your ship. Let's just hope we don't end up with Ceti Eels attached to our cerebral cortex like last year.

Check out below for the guest roster thus far.

Data Feed: Shatner On History Channel's "American Pickers"

We're not exactly sure how this slipped passed our radar, but it would seem that The Shat was on last night's episode of "American Pickers". Not familiar with the show? "American Pickers" follows the exploits of Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. If you think the antique business is all about upscale boutiques and buttoned-up dealers, this show may change your mind--and teach you a thing or two about American history along the way.
