Star Trek Goes Gay, Finally

Back in the ’90s, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” commissioned an episode involving gay characters in love. The script for “Blood And Fire” was about a deathly bloodworm epidemic, a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, and it was also the first time the multi-cultural show would have included homosexuals in any of their plots. Unfortunately, although creator Gene Roddenberry wanted to include positive representations of the gay community on his show, Paramount Studios wasn’t as forward thinking. But, like communicator/cell phones, the episode featuring gay lovers didn’t get made for real, until recently. Thanks to the fan artist project “Star Trek: Phase II”, the show will boldly go gay in a webisode! Working with the original writer, David Gerrold, and his premise, the fan crew also adapted the script about Kirk’s gay nephew to deal with the topical issue of same sex marriage. You can check out the first half of the webisode tomorrow on YouTube, but if you just want to see the sexy parts, check out the video above. [io9] Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Johnny Depp

Just when you thought you couldn’t want to bone Johnny Depp more, he finds a new way to reach out and touch you. While he may be filming a movie called Public Enemies, privately, Depp is a hero.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, moved by the story, recorded a special message for her in his “Jack Sparrow” voice. When they played the tape, the teen made her first move in five months of hospitalization, tapping her right leg, finally giving her parents hope that she’ll recover. Swoon! [IDLYITW] Keep reading »
