Star Trek: Voyager
Our good buddies Scott & Miles over at The Scifi Diner Podcast just dropped another episode featuring an interview with Lee Arenberg (Grumpy from Once Upon a Time and Pintel from the Pirates of the Caribbean). Lee also has an illustrious Star Trek resume as well. Here's the break down.
Here's a bit of nostalgia for you. I recently stumbled upon a documentary on Youtube called Star Trek Voyager - Inside the New Adventure. The documentary was originally released on January 14th, 1995 on the fledgling UPN network just two days before the premiere of Janeway and her crew. Hosted by Robert Picardo, the hour long (42 mins sans commercials) video showcases what new viewers could expect from the next installment of the Trek franchise.
If you have already heard about Hulu’s Free Star Trek Week, then you won’t see this article because you’ve been on your couch since the announcement watching it…like we have…and are not diligently checking your interwebs. But…if you haven’t heard about it, then listen up! Go grab some munchies, adjust your favorite recliner, and be prepared to enjoy non-stop Star Trek till the end of the month!!! (it deserved triple exclamation points, fer-sure)
You can watch your favorite series, or your favorite episodes…but if you’ve never watched (or hardly watched) Star Trek before and are overwhelmed about where to start, check out this list of excellent episodes. It pretty much hits it right on the nose with the suggestions.CONTINUE READING >>
If there's one thing I love almost as much as Star Trek (besides The Rockford Files), it's Match Game. It could be any incarnation, 73, 74, 78, PM, it doesn't matter. Just give me a YouTube playlist and lots of Charles Nelson Reilly. I hear he won the Tour de France with two flat tires and a missing chain...but I digress. Recently watching an episode (or six) of Match Game, I got to thinking... Surely there are episodes of Match Game and other game shows chock full o'Trek stars. And, since we live in the future, I was able to fire up the Googles and find several episodes for all you Vulcans and Andorians alike. So, in my best Gene Rayburn, "There are so many Trek stars in these game shows [long pause] that you'll have to [BLANK]." As an added note, even though the title of this article sounds like a question from Jeopardy, this list is Alex Trebek-less. That's on principle... Enjoy.
By now, many of you have heard of the new Tim Russ helmed Trek project Star Trek: Renegades. If not, it's a brand new film brought to you by the same folks responsible for Star Trek: Of God's and Men that needs your help via Kickstarter. The new project features many Trek alumns including: Tim Russ reprising his role as Tuvok & directing the feature, Garrett Wang, Gary Graham, Ethan Phillips, Robert Picardo, and Life After Trek-kers Manu Intiraymi & Walter Koenig. The story of Renegades takes place several years after Voyager's return home and delves into the dark side of the human psyche, pushing the characters to their limits, and forcing them to carry out actions that they never would have as Starfleet officers
We’re pleased to announce episode 20 of our “Life After Trek” podcast, featuring Michael DeMeritt. Many of you know Michael from his time on the full run of both Star Trek: Voyager & Star Trek: Enterprise as First / Second Assistant Director. He also worked, most recently, on hit shows like ABC Family's Make It or Break It, Showtime's Californication, NBC's Las Vegas, and many others. We met him at BayouCon 2012 in Lake Charles, Louisiana and got the chance to experience his inside Star Trek panels featuring many never-before-seen photos & stories. We knew, then and there, that he would be an excellent guest on "Life After Trek".
We've said it before and we'll say it again, we love Wizard World Comic Cons. They run some of the best conventions in the business. It seems that their world famous Philadelphia Comic Con is shaping up to be, not only a well run convention, but also a Trek fan's dream come true. All five captains are signed on as guests for the upcoming, May 31st through June 3rd convention. That's right woodchuck-chuckers, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, & Scott Bakula are beaming down to the city of brotherly love. Really, you could say 6 captains will be on board since Chris Hemsworth will also be a featured guest. Chris plays Thor in all the Marvel awesomeness that's going on lately, but he also played George Kirk. He was captain of the USS Kelvin for 12 minutes, after all...
I fondly remember watching the first episode of Star Trek: Voyager back in January of 1995 with high expectations. I would dare say that my expectations were too high. I remember thinking; there's no way that this will be as good as TNG or DS9. After watching "Caretaker", I was left with one thought. Holy crap, Captain Janeway is awesome! Fast forward 16 years later and I got to experience Kate Mulgrew's appearance on stage at Vegas Khhaaann! 2011. I left the panel thinking; Holy crap, Kate Mulgrew is awesome! With that said, we'd like to wish a very Happy Birthday to the awesome Kate Mulgrew who, in turn, made Captain Janeway so awesome. CONTINUE READING >>
Star Trek’s Q, otherwise known as John De Lancie, is the newest guest added to the Dallas Comic Con Roster. As we previously reported, Patrick Stewart is also attending. How perfect is it now that the two polar opposite characters of TNG are going to both be represented. We’re hoping that they will share stage time on a two man panel so we can see a little of the old Q vs. Picard shenanigans we all love.
