'Star Trek' Fan Quickly Lists All 79 Episodes in Order

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 24th 2010 1:25PM
No, there's nothing geeky about this at all.

This guy is not only a big fan of the original 'Star Trek,' he can list every single episode (all 79 of them) in order in just over a minute and a half! SciFiWire.com says this was done at the World Record Appreciation Society event at Joe's Pub in NYC.

Star Trek sequel in 2012?

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 9th 2010 11:00AM
Star TrekIt was announced that the sequel to the recent Star Trek movie is going to be released on May 29th, 2012. This means we'll be able to catch the next Star Trek movie before the world ends, according to the Mayans.

Of course, a sequel was inevitable due to the fact that Star Trek was pretty much the biggest (and in my opinion the best) movie of this past summer. Paramount likely signed all the actors involved to multiple-movie contracts, so getting them back isn't an issue.

Leonard Nimoy once made a music video

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 3rd 2009 5:06PM
William Shatner and Leonard NimoyI was aware that, like fellow Star Trek icon William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy released an album or two in his day. I wasn't aware, however, that Nimoy made a music video that accompanied one of the songs on those albums.

The song is "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" and was released in 1968 (which was during his run on Star Trek) on an album called The Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy. I'm surprised this video did not get more air time on MTV back in the day. Perhaps it should be considered for VH1. More info, and the video, is after the jump.

Jimmy Fallon takes on Vulcan gangsta rap

by Brad Trechak, posted May 21st 2009 7:01PM
Admittedly, I haven't been watching Jimmy Fallon's new late night talk show. I found this video segment from the show online and couldn't resist sharing. Fallon seems to be giving out a hipster geek vibe with his character of TuSpock (a combination of Tupac Shakur and Mr. Spock from Star Trek). That sort of humor is usually reserved for Mr. Fallon's alma mater of Saturday Night Live.

The make-up was excellent. Fallon even has the same look and body type as the original Spock (and wouldn't that have been a surprise piece of casting for the recent movie). The appearance of the rapper Tariq from the group The Roots as Captain Kirk was a nice touch.

Hopefully this sort of intelligent, subversive humor will be the rule for Fallon and not the exception. If he keeps up with sketches like this one, I may have to catch his show sometime (at least on Hulu).

Star Trek: The Lost Generation (same actor, wrong toy!)

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2009 3:15PM
I love stuff like this. The Fine Brothers have created another clever Lost parody, Star Trek: The Lost Generation. It's a celebration of Lost and the new Star Trek film. The crew of the Enterprise somehow gets stuck on the Lost island and not only have to deal with Jack and Sawyer and Locke but also different versions (different doll versions) of themselves. There's an appearance by a few other time-travelling pop culture figures too.

Hey Kirk, what's that smell?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 9th 2009 3:22PM
Zachary QuintoAll big movies - and some smaller ones - have a lot of promotional merchandise, but this is one of the more strange ones: they're coming out with a Star Trek cologne.

So...many...jokes.

It's just some of the merchandise for the new Star Trek movie coming later this spring. You can have your dolls and your coffee mugs and your mouse pads and your posters, the real Trekkie man will be wearing either Tiberius (that's Kirk's middle name), Pon Farr (Vulcan horniness), or Red Shirt (they're the guys that always, um, die when they beam down to another planet). No word yet on whether Tiberius will smell more like William Shatner or more like Chris Pine.

Why would Star Trek fans need a cologne? They don't go on dates! (Just kidding.)

What other TV shows deserve their own cologne? What kind of cologne does Frank on 30 Rock wear?

The Trek Barbie dolls are coming! The Trek Barbie dolls are coming!

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 22nd 2009 3:04PM

Barbie goes Federation on your ass with these new dolls modeled from the stars of the new Star Trek movieJust in time to tax refund season -- because you can't use the money for things like gas, food and basic survival -- comes the newest Barbie releases from toy giant Mattel. They're the Star Trek Barbie dolls -- three dolls that represent Kirk, Spock and Uhura. Okay, that's neat. But, there's just one issue...

See, these dolls are not designed after the original Star Trek cast from the 1960s. These dolls are modeled after the stars that will play those iconic characters in the new and highly anticipated Star Trek prequel coming out in May. Each doll comes dressed in the Starfleet outfits that are familiar to fans of the original series and carries a phaser (Type II model) and a communicator.

The cost for the dolls...forty-four friggin bucks a piece! Don't worry, because you have until the end of April to save up before they are released to Wal-mart, walmart.com, and Barbiecollector.com. Get them while they last before someone sells them on eBay for triple the price.

Fascinating: Kirk to interview Spock tomorrow

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 5th 2009 7:02PM
ShatnerHas anyone been watching William Shatner's talk show Raw Nerve? I swore to myself that I would watch it when it premiered, but it's on The Biography Channel, and sometimes when we're talking about those channels that get up to 105 or 144 or 170 on your cable system, you forget that the show is on. Heck, I'm not even sure I even get The Biography Channel on my cable system since they started taking away and adding channels in my package last year. But if I do have it I'm going to check out tomorrow's episode for sure.

On the January 6 episode, Shatner is going to interview good friend and Star Trek buddy Leonard Nimoy.

Star Trek trailer shows Kirk as a kid, Sylar acting all Spocky - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 17th 2008 5:47PM
Star TrekI knew that the new Star Trek movie was going to be an origins story, but I didn't realize how far back they were going to go.

The first trailer (not counting that lame teaser trailer that debuted months ago and was only aimed towards hardcore fans who get off on Enterprise blueprints) for the movie is now available. It is attached to some copies of Quantum of Solace (though, sadly, not the place where I saw QoS the other night, damn it) and Paramount has also released the official version online so we don't have to sit through YouTube videos that someone shot in a dark theater.

Spock and Kirk get closer - VIDEO

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 4th 2007 1:05PM
Spock and KirkThere is a certain amateurish charm to most YouTube fanvids, especially when they have to do with unconventional romances between characters that aren't explicitly stated in the show's canon. Usually the videos consist of poorly chosen clips from various episodes, cut together to kind of, sort of look like knowing glances and to kind of, sort of feel like sexual tension. However, every once in a while, I stumble across a fanvid so outrageously well-done that I am compelled to share with everyone I know, fans and non-fans alike.

Shatner out, Nimoy in for Star Trek prequel

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 25th 2007 12:03PM

kirk and spockRumors are still abound as to who is playing whom in the upcoming Star Trek prequel from Lost and Alias creator JJ Abrams, but according to the NY Post, at least one man is out: William Shatner. Despite wanting a cameo role in the prequel, Shatner was not offered one. That's kind of a bummer, but what makes it even moreso, if the rumors are true (and it's the Post, so I'm skeptical), is that Leonard "Spock" Nimoy was offered a cameo role, instead.

Ostensibly, it seems unfair to give Nimoy a brief role and shut Shatner out completely, but having no idea the context of Nimoy's supposed cameo, it's tough to have an opinion about it one way or the other. Perhaps the cameo situation is such that it would only work with Nimoy and not Shatner --some kind of clever inside joke-- but I guess we won't know until the movie comes out.

The Five: WB shows that we forgot

by Brett Love, posted Sep 17th 2006 12:12PM
Michigan J FrogAfter 11 years of work, the WB signs off for good on Sunday September 17th, making way for the new CW network. The frog network is going out with a bang though. To celebrate the final day of broadcasting they will be showing the pilot episodes of some of their more popular shows. You can look forward to seeing Felicity, Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Dawson's Creek. Along with the number one episodes, the night will be rounded out with classic images and promos from the history of the network.

Now, we could go all Buffy crazy and start listing best five episodes, or have that Dawson/Joey/Pacey argument all over again. Maybe even bring up that whole Felicity's hair question. Rather than that, let's go the other way. Those shows were all great, and they've stayed in the public conscious, but what about those WB shows that didn't become household names? Take a trip down memory lane as I list five of the WB shows that we forgot.

What if Strazcynski and Zabel did Star Trek?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 17th 2006 3:11PM
Star TrekBack in 2004, writers and producers J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, The Twilight Zone) and Bryce Zabel (Dark Skies, M.A.N.T.I.S) actually wrote a Star Trek script that would have "rebooted" the franchise. Like the new J.J. Abrams-produced movie will do (supposedly), having the original characters of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, this script did as well, only as Zabel puts it, "...not as young officers in Starfleet Academy. We wanted to do what they do in the world of comics, create a separate universe so we could embrace the good stuff, banish the bad, and try some new things."

Take a look and let us know what you think of it (click the above link and scroll down to the PDF file).

Star Trek to return in 2008

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 21st 2006 9:58AM
J.J. AbramsStay calm, Trekkers, but this is big news: a big-screen return for Star Trek is in the works for 2008, according to today's Variety.

And who will direct the movie? Why, J.J. Abrams of Lost/Alias/Mission: Impossible 3 fame! Probably a good choice. He  knows how to mix the big action with the character drama, and he'll bring some buzz to the franchise too.

The movie will focus on the early days of Starfleet, when Kirk and Spock first met. Hmmm...readers, who do you think should play the young Kirk and Spock?
