Do you love television? Even if you aren’t an avid fan of Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, or Dead Like Me, you should be thrilled that one of the most original and thoughtful creators is coming back to TV!
Variety reports that Bryan Fuller has been named the showrunner for the new Star Trek series, slated… More »
I am a diehard, not particularly discerning “Star Trek” fan. I’m not obsessive about the canon, as evidenced by plot of the fanfic I wrote when I was 12, which had Wesley, Tasha Yar, Deanna Troi and Data all attending the Academy together (LOL, IMPOSSIBLE, I KNOW!!!!). My love for “Star Trek” was born when I was… More »

Long before Zachary Quinto’s eyebrows were getting Chris Pine out of intergalactic jams, the Vulcan who won over the hearts of a universe was actor Leonard Nimoy, “Star Trek”‘s original Captain Spock, was charming audiences everywhere with his resolute pragmatism aboard the Starship Enterprise. The 83-year old actor passed away at home in Beverly Hills on Friday… More »
Dave Pollot must be the happiest Etsy seller on Etsy today: art and tech blog Laughing Squid found his store earlier this year, but their post on his newly updated and expanded selection of thrift store paintings has gotten picked up by a rash of pop culture blogs today. I’m happy to contribute to that, because… More »
Hey guys, what do you think of my sweet new ride? Just kidding, I wish I could afford this “Star Trek”-themed “boogie van” (really, that’s a term?) for sale on eBay for $8,500. I’m moving to Los Angeles in a few months and I need a set of wheels, and this 1978 GMC van has… More »
I’ve been a “Star Trek” fan since I was a little girl, when I started watching the show (first “The Original Series,” then “The Next Generation”) with my dad. Even when the TV was off, “Trek” stoked my imagination. One of the fondest memories I have of my dad (who died in November 2012) was… More »
Last night, Ami and I had the pleasure of going to see Sirs Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in “No Man’s Land” on Broadway. The show was fantastic and funny, and I’ll tell you more about it when we give away tickets next week. After the show, I bid Ami adieu and then stood… More »
Dear Indian Trail Town Council Member David Waddell,
Actually, I guess I should say ex Indian Trail Town Council Member David Waddell, because you officially resigned from your position yesterday. I’m not in the habit of propositioning politicians, especially politicians who are resigning in order to stage a write-in campaign as a Constitution… More »
It recently came to our attention that for the low, low price of $69.99, you can make a 3D-printed customized “Star Trek” action figure of yourself. Let us just say that again: you can turn yourself into a shockingly detailed, miniature member of Starfleet. LIFE DREAM STATUS ALERT. Obviously we have already spent multiple hours… More »
If anyone was born to read “Star Trek” erotic fan fiction aloud, it’s Mr. Sulu himself, George Takei. The actor sensually read through some truly superb Trekkie purple prose on “Watch What Happens Live” this week and, oh my, was it hot and heavy. Watch above! … More »
My mom — you guys call her Amelia — turns 34 on November 16th and I’m worried she’s going to be depressed about it. She found three grey hairs the other day. Anyway, I think this cheeky “Star Trek” T-shirt would cheer her up about her advancing age, because despite being old, she’s totally still… More »
When I envision my ideal day, it involves a treehouse, Sir Patrick Stewart, marijuana and the vast acting knowledge held in the brilliant mind of the man who played Captain Jean Luc Picard. Here, Stewart explains to his girlfriend, Sunny Ozell, the finer points of the “quadruple take.” It is amazing. [Gawker] … More »
Know any unemployed Klingons living in Illinois? Then you should probably go tell them their lives have become considerably easier. But since they don’t have a word for “unemployed,” you might have some difficulty explaining it, so bring a phaser in case things escalate.
The Illinois Department of Employment Security began offering Klingon… More »
Last night, worlds collided. The season premiere of “Breaking Bad.” And a supremely stonerific “Star Trek” plot. Total nerdgasm. NYMag.com has a totally wonderful parsing of the validity of Badger’s “Star Trek” script idea, including whether Scotty could actually beam the contents of Kirk’s stomach into space. (It was in watching this scene that I realized… More »
Brilliant makeup blogger Sahily recreated the “Star Trek Into Darkness” movie poster image ON HER EYELID as part of her Summer Movie Makeup series. The craziest part is Sahily is not even a “Star Trek” fan; she was just inspired by the movie art. She says this was an artistic experiment, and “not a wearable… More »
It’s like the genius minds at Vinport Wines know my desires even before I do, as it never occurred to me that my life was missing “Star Trek”-themed wine until the company announced they were releasing three wines named after classic “Trek” episodes. For Vinport to send me all three — “The City on the Edge… More »
“Star Trek”‘s Captain James T. Kirk was my first crush. When I was five — and clearly part of a super nerdy family — my dad used to make up stories for me before bed. I was always an Ensign or a Yeoman on the Enterprise (with a sweet beehive, natch) in the… More »
