Walter Koenig Heading Back To Original 'Star Trek' Set

OK, it's a replica ... but a darn good one.

James Cawley's replica of the original "Star Trek" sets is closed for the season. But when the Upstate New York attraction re-opens in the spring, it will be getting ready for a rather big VIP.

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.

You remember that, right? First-run syndication was practically unheard of. Back in 1987, if you wanted a television show produced, you approached NB ...
