'Trouble With Tribbles' Guest William Schallert Dies

Also appeared in two DS9 episodes, one as a Bajoran musician

Mainstream television fans might know him from his days on "The Patty Duke Show," but original "Star Trek" fans are now having to say good-bye to Nilz Baris. That was the character William Schallert played in the popular "Trek" episode "The Trouble With Troubles." Schallert, who would go on to a prolific television and film career with more than 370 credits, died Sunday in Pacific Palisades, California. He was 93. Schallert's character of Baris was an undersecretary in charge of agricultural affairs along the Federation's border with the Klingon Empire, according to ...

Star Trek Online Goes Back In Time For 50th

Popular MMO will take fans into the realm of classic Trek

Time travel might not happen on Star Trek as much as it does on, say, "Doctor Who." But it's still a popular activity and story device. Star Trek Online, the massively multiplayer online game from Arc Games, has utilized time travel in several of its episode storylines. But just in time for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the game will really give players a chance to jump back into classic "Star Trek." As part of the third expansion of "Agents of Yesterday," players can jump back into the days of Kirk, Spock and McCoy to take command of a 23rd century era starship, much ...

Canada: Land Of Hockey, Healthcare, And Now Star Trek

Michael Hinman feels fans should be proud new series is aiming to be different

One of the biggest things that bugs me about Star Trek fandom sometimes — and trust me, I'm part of this fandom, just like you, so we all can judge — is that no matter what you do, people just aren't going to be happy. Since 2005, fans have been clamoring for a new Trek television show, and we would have to wait for more than a decade. Then, last year, CBS announced it was bringing Star Trek back to television, well more or less. And it's the "more or less" part — CBS All ...

Third Fan-Film Closes, This Time Voluntarily

Actor Joe Geragi closes shop on 'Star Trek: Constellation'

It's not one of the most prominent fan-films within the very limited Star Trek community, but it appears the tsunami of the Axanar copyright infringement lawsuit have taken out another production in its wake. Joe Geragi, a character actor and producer, has decided to shut down his project, "Star Trek: Constellation." The fan project was designed to be a prequel to the original "Star Trek" episode "Doomsday Machine," featuring Capt. Decker and what is a brand-new crew for his ship, the USS Constellation, at the Mirdani Space Station. "His life's mission takes a drastic turn ...

Axanar Won't Back Down From Dismissal Motion

PLUS: Did Axanar claim it was 'officially sanctioned'?

With a hearing just two weeks away, the attorney representing the fan-film "Star Trek: Axanar" filed paperwork with the court Monday that reinforces its position that the two studios who own the copyright to Star Trek have failed to make an infringement claim against her client. Erin Ranahan, a pro bono attorney with Winston & Strawn, defended her motion to dismiss she filed a month ago, arguing that CBS and Paramount have no standing to make the copyright claims, th ...

Fan-Film Makes Last-Ditch Effort To Salvage Fundraising

'Star Trek Continues' publicly distances itself from embattled 'Axanar'

With less than two weeks remaining, "Star Trek Continues" producer Vic Mignogna is doing everything he can to try and raise $350,000 for more episodes of his popular fan-film series — even climb to the peak of Vasquez Rocks. The 930-acre park, located about 45 miles north of Los Angeles, is a popular television and movie location setting, including episodes of the original "Star Trek," and the Vulcan scenes from "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home." Mignogna used the geological park as a setting fo ...

Spock Documentary Premiere Welcomes Diversity

Tribeca film panel ends with gay rights activist from North Carolina

North Carolina hasn't exactly been the most welcoming state lately when it comes to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. At least as far as the government goes. But one activist resident in the state is not going to wallow in despair — instead, she's ready to use Star Trek as an inspiration. Human Rights Campaign volunteer Melanie Skinner was one of several fans who asked questions last week at the Tribeca Film Festival screening of Adam Nimoy's documentary "For the Love of Spock." Growing up in the state, which recently passed a so-called "bathroom bill" t ...

New Trek Series Filming In Toronto?

Could be first time ever Trek has non-American home

CBS says it wants to do a lot of things differently when it comes to its new Star Trek series on CBS All Access. Not only in how the story is told and the characters who tell, but apparently also where the show is filmed. For what would be the first time in Trek television history, the new series will not have filming based in Hollywood, but instead will take up residence 2,500 miles away — in Toronto. Pop Goes the News reports CBS Corp. has booked studio space in the Canadian city beginning this September. That doesn ...
