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 ...

DeForest Kelley's Personal Life Spotlighted In Memoir

'Fan Who Knew Him Best' reflects on a Star Trek legend

It’s hard to be in a hospital room with a loved one. Final moments are labors of love built upon the foundations of devotion. One never resents or regrets this time because of all the love and good times shared with that person, and it's an honor to share that remaining time with this special person. In the personal memoir "DeForest Kelley: Up Close and Personal: A Harvest of Memories from the Fan Who Knew Him Best," Kristine Smith was in that room with Star Trek legend DeForest Kelley, and in a way that could never be forgotten by her ... or us. This is a personal me ...

Leonard Nimoy, Trek's Most Famous Icon, Dies

A long battle with COPD claims the life of the man behind Mr. Spock at age 83

He was a director. An activist. A photographer. Sometimes even a singer. But to the world of Star Trek, he was Mr. Spock. Leonard Nimoy, the man who first brought the green-blooded, pointy-eared Vulcan to life nearly 50 years ago, died Friday. He was 83. Nimoy had been rushed to a California hospital last week with severe chest pains, but was released a short time later. Susan Bay Nimoy confirmed her husband's death with The New York Times, saying he was in end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy revealed his battle with COPD late last year when ...

For Two Days, There Was Star Trek, Alabama

Famous NASA-associated city celebrated franchise's 30th anniversary in 1996

What's in the name of a town? That's a great question, and judging by history, no town name is written in stone. Especially if there is a chance to put that town on a map. Probably one of the earliest examples of this is Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. A town of less than 5,000 people north of Philadelphia, it was known as Mauch Chunk until the 1950s. While other towns, states and even countries are typically named after government leaders or war heroes, Jim Thorpe got its name simply by agreeing to build a monument and be the final resting place of famous athlete Jim Thorpe, who ha ...

Lin Convinced Karl Urban To Return For 'Beyond'

Dr. McCoy actor almost RSVPed his regrets to new film

The worst thing someone ever wants to hear in a relationship is that it's over, and that "it's not you, it's me." Karl Urban almost sent that very message to Paramount Pictures last year when it came time for him to reprise his role of Dr. Leonard McCoy in "Star Trek: Beyond." But it was actually new director Justin Lin that ultimately convinced him to stay. "I was on the fence about doing the movie until I spoke with Justin," Urban recently told IGN's Scott Collura. "Because I had a conflicting schedule, and I had a decision to make about which film to do, and I was no lon ...

CBS, Paramount Both Plan 50th Anniversary Blu-ray Releases

From television series to movies, fans will have a lot to choose from this summer

In what will likely be more than what a typical Blu-ray player can handle, both CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures are planning major releases this summer, not only to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise, but also to start the buildup for "Star Trek: Beyond" in July. CBS will kick it all off first on June 7 when it releases "megapacks" of both "Star Trek: The Original Series" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation" on Blu-ray. Both box sets, which hit store shelves on June 7, are complete series. The original Star trek is 79 episodes on 20 discs in high-de ...

William Shatner Is 85 Today — Really?

We take a look at how everyone seems to be getting better with age

The Earth stopped on March 22, 1931 for just a few seconds, because yes, even Terra Prime needed to mark the moment William Shatner came into the world. It's hard to believe that today's he's 85 years old. We see him in the original "Star Trek," in six movies, and how active he is today — this man is never going to retire. And we don't want him to. In fact, Shatner has the energy of a 35-year-old, which is exactly how old he was when "Star Trek" first premiered in 1966. If someone told him — or anyone else from the cast and crew — that 50 years later, we would still be hono ...
