Star Trek: Discovery goes out on a bang!

Wow. I'm not sure how to describe how I felt once last night's episode of Star Trek: Discovery was over. I mean, I knew it represented a mid-season pause in the schedule, with no new episodes until January. So that meant a little disappointment. Note: some spoilers below! In fact, many spoilers below.  Disappointment at the scheduling ...

Star Trek: Discovery renewed for a second season!

Excellent news, fellow geeks: Star Trek: Discovery has been confirmed for a second season. That nagging doubt at the back of my mind that we would only get one season - for any number of reasons - has evaporated, and I can enjoy the show more than ever. Just in time, too, as last night's ...

Some thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery

We're five episodes into the first season of Star Trek: Discovery and it's safe to say I'm hooked. It's turned out to be a better show than I could have hoped for!

New Star Trek trailer: wow!

So the new Star Trek: Beyond trailer dropped a few hours ago. I've now watched it about six times and can't wait to see this on a massive screen.

Squeal-inducing Star Trek “news”

I have @Nutchild to thank for bringing this to my attention: the very slight possibility that Star Trek is going to return to TV as an ongoing series. I know. Deep breaths. Hold my hand: shit just got real. According to Newsarama: Sky News reporter Joe Michalczuk tweeted on October 8 that during a press junket for the ...

Where many men have gone before…

  It was @FrankDJS's fault for pointing it out in the first place...a guy walking through Canary Wharf with a model Starship Enterprise in a bag. Geeky excitement rose in me like a hunger. Five minutes later, I was in a newsagent's, drooling over the "Part One in a Series of..." Star Trek models set. ...

Starcher Trek!

This is just too good not to share. Take a little "Star Trek: The Animated Series" and mix it with a little bit of (the most excellent) "Archer" and you get... "Starcher Trek"
