Roddenberry Still Knows Little About New Trek Series

PLUS: Creator's son talks fan-films, and lawsuits ... kind of

Although it's been a few weeks since Rod Roddenberry joined the team of the upcoming Star Trek: Series 6 as an executive producer, it seems the son of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry still knows little about the show Bryan Fuller is putting together. "I know very little about the direction," Roddenberry told TrekZone's Matt Miller. "I've had two meetings with Bryan Fuller. He brought the writers together, and h ...

'Axanar' Must Stop Trying To Control The Conversation

There's passion, but then there's crossing a line

Last weekend, 1701News was provided what was claimed to be an early draft of the screenplay for "Star Trek: Axanar." "Axanar," in case you missed it, was an "independent" fan-film production that has raised more than $1.1 million in crowdfunding to create what was supposed to be a feature-length look into the backstory of the original "Star Trek" episode "Whom Gods Destroy." I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with the script. I skimmed through it, and to me, it really looked like something you should expect from a passionate fan. There's nothing wrong with having that ...

CBS Announces First New Trek Series In A Decade

However, you'll have to pay to see it

Nearly 30 years after "Star Trek: The Next Generation" broke new ground in television distribution by going to first-run syndication, a brand new Star Trek television series will try it again ... this time on the subscription-based CBS All Access. CBS Television Studios, which controls the television rights to the franchise, says it's working with "Star Trek" and "Star Trek: Into Darkness" co-writer Alex Kurtzman to develop a new Star Trek series for television, set to launch in January 2017. While this might suggest a tie-in to the film franchise, StarTrek.com reported that i ...

Trek Actors Save Galacticon After Mass Exodus

Last-minute change in management put annual Seattle convention in jeopardy

There may be a lot of eyes on Las Vegas Creation Entertainment's official Star Trek convention next weekend, but it's a smaller gathering in Seattle this weekend that is getting more attention than it would probably prefer. Galacticon, a Battlestar Galactica-centric convention co-created by original BSG star Richard Hatch, is set to get underway. But it just won't be doing it with very many people from "Battlestar Galactica." Instead, the heavily truncated guest list is led by two Klingons — J.G. Hertzler and Robert O'Reilly — in a series of events that have forced its exec ...

Twitter came alive this week not just for 'Star Trek 3,' but for gay marriage too

Masterson: 'Deep Space Nine' Transcends Time

Celebrating recent role in 'The Flash,' Chase Masterson talks a little about Trek's past

Sometimes it's hard to believe how many episodes of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" featured Chase Masterson's character Leeta (just 17). Yet, Leeta has become an enduring character in Trek fandom, and Masterson a fan-favorite both online and on the convention circuit. So it's no surprise her recent guest role on The CW series "The Flash" has been getting a lot of attention. That attention, she recently told Voices From Krypton, is thanks to the fact that DS9 was a hit, not just when it was running, but afterward. And they all knew it would be, even some 20 years ago. "We knew ...

Star Trek May Not Be Ready For 50th Anniversary

Can the franchise live up to James Bond, Doctor Who?

The Brits have proven that when it comes to anniversaries, they know how to celebrate it. When James Bond turned 50 in 2012, the writing team of Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan knew how to celebrate Ian Fleming's creation with "Skyfall." This past year, "Doctor Who" did the same, bringing all 13 Doctors together to make sure that "Gallifrey falls no more." But what about Star Trek? It will turn 50 in 2016 -- now just two years away. And although Paramount Pictures is planning to release the third film in the rebooted universe at the time, one longtime writer and ...
