The Troll That Alec Peters Built

Guest columnist Sandy Greenberg talks about how Axanar case affects him

I think I was destined to love science-fiction. I was born while the Apollo 9 mission was in Earth orbit testing the lunar module. I like to think my first moments of life were listening to the live broadcast of it.

In response to Michael Hinman’s recent article, Find Out How Khan Almost Wasn’t Khan, I want to take a moment to discuss Roberto Orci’s announcement that Khan wasn’t always going to be the main villain in “Star Trek: Into Darkness.” The same day as this 1701News story, Blastr had a story highlighting what they said were the 14 things that made “Into Darkness” so controversial. While I do agree with most of their points, they seemed a bit trivial compared to what I think was the …

It’s Finally Here: 1701 News

Company founded by Star Trek creator joins forces with Airlock Alpha owners

Almost 15 years ago, I started a website called SyFy World (later SyFy Portal, and even later after that Airlock Alpha). It was a science-fiction entertainment news site, but its primary focus was on Star Trek. In 1998, we had two television series going — “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager” — as well as a new movie, the Jonathan Frakes-directed “Star Trek: Insurrection” on its way into theaters.
