We admit that this audio has been around for a while, and this particular version was uploaded two years ago.But the original audio recording of Jerry Goldsmith's theme to "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" has resurfaced recently, and if you love to see how music comes together, this is a must-hear.The TMP theme, of course, would go on to become the theme to "Star Trek: The Next Generation" less than a decade later. But this audio session, sometime in 1979, actually marks the first time an orchestra has played the theme. And sadly, much lik ...

Stewart Sings Country Music For Charity

Cowboy classics, all to support International Rescue Committee

Fuller: Trek TV Gossip Rated 'Pants On Fire'

Set before TNG? Nope. Anthology? Nope

Bryan Fuller won't share too many details of the new Star Trek series, reportedly saving them for San Diego Comic-Con next month. But what he can say is all that gossip originating from a blog with unverified and uncorroborated information? Totally not true. Fuller, the former "Star Trek: Voyager" writer who will serve as showrunner for the CBS All Access series, says reports that circulated over the spring that set his show after "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" and before "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is false. Also false? The fact that the new series would be an ...

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 ...

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 ...

Who Would Picard Screw, Marry And Kill On TNG?

Patrick Stewart gets asked the rather odd Millennial question by another actor

For some reason, actors in their 70s have never heard of the little game where someone gives you three names, and you choose each one for a specific role of marrying, killing or having sex with.Yes, it's an odd game, but one that came up with Patrick Stewart from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" fame, during a lighthearted Variety interview with actor Thomas Middleditch. That actor is in HBO's popular comedy "Silicon Valley," and felt it was time for Stewart to look at the cast of characters around Picard, and decide who he would fornicate with ...

No, You Can't Copyright Klingon, You PetaQ

Language Creation Society takes Klingon stand in Axanar case

There have already been some crazy fan-based filings when it comes to the copyright infringement case between the studios that own Star Trek and a proposed fan-film. But the Language Creation Society has now upped the bar. And they did it in Klingon. The society, which was founded at the University of California-Berkeley, filed a "friend of the court" brief to say the Klingon language cannot be copyrighted. "Klingon gave Star Trek characters convincing dialogue," wrote attorney Marc Randazza of the Las Vegas-based Randazza Legal Group. "But it broke its chains and took o ...

Star Trek Films With Biggest Box Office Bang

EXCLUSIVE: We compare all 12 movies, all in one place

Do Star Trek fans support the films just because they are Star Trek? Are more recent outings like "Star Trek: Into Darkness" and the upcoming "Star Trek: Beyond" getting a pass simply because they contain our favorite characters? That has been the question Trekkies have been asking for at least the past seven years since director J.J. Abrams released "Star Trek." We see the hundreds of millions of dollars that film and "Into Darkness" have generated, but is it above the past films, like "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home"? Is it even on par? Finding the right comparison can be ...
