Coming Soon: 'Lost: Hurley's Star Wars Script'

What would Paramount just dropping the Axanar lawsuit really mean?

I have a big announcement I want to share, and I've been so excited about it, I don't know how I've kept the lid on it for this long. But I have planned a huge crowdfunding campaign, beginning tomorrow, for "Lost: Hurley's Star Wars Script." If you remember back in Season 5 of "Lost," one of my favorite characters of the show, Hurley (played by Jorge Garcia) was thrown back into the 1970s with some of his other island castaways. And while there, he was actually trying to write a better Star Wars script than what Lucas would eventually do — working to make some corrections t ...

Trek Author Chronicles His Days With Axanar

Dave Galanter says he was just trying to help, but the fan-film quickly flamed out of control

Fans of the Star Trek novels would certainly recognize the name Dave Galanter. Yet, the author considers himself more of an occasional novelist rather than a career one. His library includes a few books he co-wrote with Greg Brodeur, like the 1994 "Star Trek: The Next Generation" novel "Foreign Foes," and the 2001 two-parter "Dead Zone" and "Forever Dark" in the Maximum Warp series. He even penned a "Star Trek: New Voyages" episode, "Enemy: Starfleet," that was released in 2011. In fact, Galanter considers "New Voyages" co-creator James Cawley a friend. Despite spending his ...

Trekdom Celebrates Gay Marriage Supreme Court Ruling

George Takei, Zachary Quinto among those expressing pride

After months of waiting. the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down key provisions of two laws that had plagued gay civil rights proponents for many years. And the Star Trek community -- where there is infinite diversity in infinite combinations -- celebrated. "Today marks a watershed moment in history and a tremendous victory for the principle of equality," actor George Takei from the original "Star Trek" series told his followers on Facebook. "The 5-4 decision by our Supreme Court striking down DOMA affirms the universality of love -- the desire of all people not ...

Lost Footage From Original 'Star Trek' Revealed

Blu-ray also will feature 12 classic episodes

Gene Roddenberry didn't like to throw things away. That might have meant a full closet in his bedroom, but it has become a treasure trove of material for Star Trek fans ... especially in time for the 50th anniversary of the franchise he created. CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution have joined with Roddenberry Entertainment to announce a new Blu-ray set coming later this year called "Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault." The Blu-ray will contain bits and pieces of episodic footage that was left on the cutting room floor, and then s ...

Canada: Land Of Hockey, Healthcare, And Now Star Trek

Michael Hinman feels fans should be proud new series is aiming to be different

One of the biggest things that bugs me about Star Trek fandom sometimes — and trust me, I'm part of this fandom, just like you, so we all can judge — is that no matter what you do, people just aren't going to be happy. Since 2005, fans have been clamoring for a new Trek television show, and we would have to wait for more than a decade. Then, last year, CBS announced it was bringing Star Trek back to television, well more or less. And it's the "more or less" part — CBS All ...

'Animated Series' Among Holiday Blu-ray Trek Offerings

Paramount/CBS also will offer 4K versions of reboot films

It's already been transferred to high-definition, so why not release "Star Trek: The Animated Series" on Blu-ray, right? CBS agrees, and will do just that for Christmas, marking the first time the 22 episodes will be available in such an HD format. The series, which ran between 1973 and 1974, will join films like "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" on Blu-ray as well as both the 2009 "Star Trek" and 2013's "Star Trek: Into Darkness." Of course, for those films, being on Blue-ray is not new. However, The Digital Bits ...

Star Trek Dream Team? It Failed 30 Years Ago

Roddenberry, Meyer, Fuller, Kurtzman ... what does history say about this?

For the first time in 12 years, Star Trek will be back on television with a new episode. Well, kind of, I guess. It will be on CBS All Access, the online subscription-based streaming platform that will bring Star Trek into the future. And many fans, including myself, have drawn many parallels between what CBS is doing now in terms of distribution, and what it did 30 years ago, when it launched "Star Trek: The Next Generation." You remember that, right? First-run syndication was practically unheard of. Back in 1987, if you wanted a television show produced, you approached NB ...

She has delighted readers with many books, including some popular ones in the Star Trek universe. But now author Ann Crispin is saying good-bye to fans. "I've been hesitant to make this post, but it's time," Crispin posted to her Facebook page. "I want to thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. I fear my condition is deteriorating.

5-Year Mission Ends For Trek In The Park

Stage production calls it quits after 'Trouble With Tribbles'

It's not exactly clear why a popular summertime staple of watching "Star Trek" episodes performed on a live stage has ended, but it has. Trek in the Park, the high-quality stage production of Star Trek in Portland, Ore., has hung up its tricorder after five years. The plays, performed by actors from Atomic Arts, made it clear this would be the last time they would take the stage in Starfleet uniforms. And they did it celebrating a classic: David Gerrold's "The Trouble With Tribbles." "In the future, we intend to show a wide variety of shows and events," Atomic Arts said on ...

Roddenberry Hosts New 'Origins' Blu-ray Set

Wach the beginning of Star Trek, Khan and the Klingons ... oh my!

So many questions have been asked in Star Trek, but none have been answered like this one: How did so many of these wonderful icons of this legendary franchise get started? Fans will have a chance to find out Sept. 10 when CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution release the "Origins" Blu-ray set for the original series of "Star Trek." Hosted by Rod Roddenberry, son of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry (and part of the ownership team of 1701News), the set will include the classic Trek episodes "The Cage," "Where No Man Has Gone Before," "Space Seed," ...
