Finally ... 'Beyond' Rights The Ship

TrekZone's Matthew Miller reviews latest Star Trek movie

This review contains some spoilers for "Star Trek: Beyond." It was originally published on TrekZone.org. I can safely say that J.J. Abrams stepping down from the hands-on approach was the best decision made. He's a Star Wars kind of guy and we needed a movie that appeases both the Trekkies and the casual moviegoers, and Simon Pegg delivered that in spades here. For the first time since 2009, I'm able to accept the Kelvin Timeline — yes it's different and weird and unique, but Simon and fellow writer Do ...

It has been nearly eight years since German Star Trek fan Jurgen Kaiser embarked on a Trek fan-film like no other. Wanting to continue the missions of the NX-01 from "Star Trek: Enterprise," Kaiser meticulously put together an episode of his own, bringing in the Mirror Universe as well as some Terminator-like bad-guys ... all in stop-motion animation.In fact, according to DW, Kaiser spent about an hour on every second — and ther ...

Fact Is, We Don't Know What New Trek Is

Gossip, rumors are just that ... gossip, rumors

Some other news outlets are just starting to pick up on a rumor 1701News reported last week that suggested the upcoming Star Trek television series on CBS All Access could be set in the AbramsVerse. What that means is that the alternate timeline established by 2009's "Star Trek," which was directed by J.J. Abrams, could be the canonical home of the new Star Trek series. But then again, maybe not. The fact is, despite all the reports that have been circulating about the new ...

Could Trek's Parents Get Back Together?

Serious speculation on re-merging Viacom, CBS under Les Moonves

Divorces aren't always forever. But if CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures parent Viacom Inc., do indeed decide to get back together, it won't be out of love ... but instead, necessity. With family members and company executives battling over control of the majority shares in both companies owned by 93-year-old Sumner Redstone, some serious talk has started that might aim the two separate companies toward undoing the 2006 split, and re-merging Viacom and CBS. That would have a tremendous impact on a good portion of Hollywood — especially as a combined CBS/Viacom would clearly ...

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 ...

Axanar Crash: Judge Denies Motion To Dismiss

PLUS: Language Creation Society's Klingon language brief rejected

Lawyers from both sides of a copyright infringement case against an "independent" Star Trek fan-film met in court for the first time Monday. And afterward, one of the defendants in that case was optimistic — even announcing plans to restart production of "Star Trek: Axanar" next year. But Tuesday, Judge R. Gary Klausner dropped a huge hammer on "Axanar," denying completely the fan-film's motion to dismiss. Which means the suit filed by CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures against Axanar Productions and its principal, Alec Peters, will move forward at full force. "We should be h ...

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 ...

Fundraising for 'Star Trek: Horizon' sequel was to have started next week

Have Star Trek fan-films finally met their fate?

"Star Trek: Federation Rising," the recently announced sequel to the fan-film "Star Trek: Horizon" released last February by Tommy Kraft, has been shut down before it could even get off the ground. "E ...
