    Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season, it was announced today by CBS All Access. “In just six episodes, Star Trek: Discovery has driven subscriber growth, critical acclaim and huge global fan interest for the first premium version of this great franchise,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive, referring to the fact that Discovery set new CBS All Access records for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month. “This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the Star Trek legacy. We are extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series.” The first six episodes are currently available. As previously announced, Discovery will air in two chapters. The final episode of chapter one will debut on Sunday, November 12, and the second chapter, featuring the remaining six episodes, will return in January 2018. Star Trek: Discovery streams Sunday nights on CBS All Access in the U.S. and Space Channel in Canada. The series streams on Mondays on Netflix in the rest of the world. View the full article

    This episode also marked the last appearance of Lt. DeSalle in the series. Catspaw is one of the hidden gems of classic Trek's second season. What stood out for me was the balance of humor and creepiness imbued within this journey (e.g. Spock's deadpan response to the witches dreadful song, "Very bad poetry Captain" to which Kirk replies " A more useful comment, Mr. Spock." The blend of these elements makes this an ep worth repeat viewings. Happy 50th to Catspaw!!!!

    It looks promising based on the photos. The introduction of Lt. Ash Tyler in last week's ep was a good move. It came at a crucial time and is one of the better introductions of a major character on a Trek series in a long time. Ash has been through a lot and he seems to mesh well with Captain Lorca who also has been through a lot during his service to Starfleet. Looking forward to this new ep.

    Discovery's propulsion system is amazing. The use of living creatures to accomplish it is probably why it remained a secret, and was never part of design of future ships. The creature is somehow not responding well to its role. People who seem like main characters keep getting killed. For noe I m interested to see where this all leads.

    I like what i have seen of the series so far and am looking forward to more eps as it continues to find its legs, although it seems to be leaning heavily towards a covert operations (need I say Section 31?) subplot already. I am stoked that there is new Star Trek available, but wish there were more episodes to look forward to. Only fifteen episodes with a two month hiatus after a mere nine episodes into the series? I am kind of disappointed in that. Especially considering I am paying for CBS All Access to view this show (most of the other programs I would watch are already available on Netflix). I was really hoping for a 25+ episode season much like other series have given us in years past. Still, I am glad there is Star Trek rather than no Trek at all. I just hope CBS produces more eps when they rollout season 2.

    Artwork looks nice. Many of the non-TNG posters looked awesome as well. I hate to be the one to state it, but the TNG crew poster should have included Wesley Crusher. He was based on Gene Wesley Roddenberry as a young man and Wesley Crusher played a significant role in many memorable TNG eps such as "The First Duty" and one of my personal faves, "Journey's End".

    Ladies and gentlemen, we present, for your viewing and listening pleasure, the Audi Orchestra, as they perform the original Star Trek theme. Now, this is no ordinary orchestra. It features musicians, including a horn player and harpist, joined by an Audi R8 V10 Plus, SQ5 and TT RS, in bringing the tune to life. The spot is timed to the Emmy Awards broadcast, which will air Sunday on CBS, and celebrates the fact that in 1967, Star Trek: The Original Series was nominated for Outstanding Drama.

    Characterizations, Treknology, Treknobabble, it really has it all. It's a shame someone can parody Star Trek better than Trek owners can create actual new canon. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the Discovery story hits a home run.

    I really liked John B.'s Phlox. He had such depth and his responses made him seem so real. Two examples. His response to the new prejudice against aliens he encountered I think at the start of season four, when he just wouldn't go back down to the surface, even though he had been craving Chinese food for so long, was so real. The response to prejudice that never makes the evening news is why it is successful and will never go away......people just stay away from mean people. He settled for take out. Then I loved the time he was playing basketball with the senior staff. He was playing the game by standing in one spot shooting 'three-pointers', enjoying himself and thinking about a Denobulan (spelling?) 'analog', interpreting the game in terms of his own cultural perspectives. Everyone else was sweating, running and jumping and exhausting themselves..... playing basketball! To me this is the kind of understated excellence Star Trek had over most sci-fi....interspecies cultural interaction. Phlox considered himself to be playing the game, but was seeing things from his own perspective. The humans were including him and doing things from their perspective, including using and trading Phlox's special shooting talent to win...it was a brief, excellent vignette of inclusion. And right before the tragic news of the embassy explosion.....

    A new topic..its easy all you gotta do is post some historical fact for that day.. Today in history...The Dambusters and the bouncing bomb The attack on German dams took place on the night of 16-17 May 60 years ago and was famously made into a film, starring Sir Michael Redgrave. Two dams were breached in the raid, but an estimated 1,294 people drowned, while 53 aircrew were killed and three taken prisoner. One of the most famous bombing raids ever.

    I saw the documentary that his son did. In watching it, I realized that at the time Leonard Nimoy was born in Boston and at the hospital in which he was born, my grandmother was a nurse. So, my grandmother was most likely inside the hospital when he was born and if she wasn't there at the time, she was there not long after. He grew up not far from where my mother and her siblings grew up. We're talking about maybe half a mile to a mile in distance.

    It's been 6 years since our last upgrade, and it's time for a new one. I hope to have it completed within the next couple of weeks, but it's been so long since the last one, that a lot has to be done to prepare the site from a compatibility standpoint. I've created a STARTREKFANS Twitter account as well, and the new board platform will have enhanced social media connectivity, so look for some exciting changes coming to STF.

    It looked really good! It did look good. I loved Karl Urban's part with Spock beaming away, and thought he truly recreated how DeForest Kelley would have done it. It's amazing how much like DeForest Kelley Urban sounds. His McCoy and Quinto's Spock are the two characters that are most like the originals.

    Hi everyone, since I'm doing this sort of topic thingy on a lot of other boards, I thought why not doing it here as well, here, the first English-speaking Trek message board I registered at when I became a Trek fan... wow, that was a long time ago... Those of you who remember me probably also remember that I'm a huge fan of Sir Patrick Stewart. I try to know everything about him, which is proving to be a rather challenging task sometimes. This topic is meant to provide people with Sir-Patrick-related news, new pictures and videos, movie/theater rumors and all (I will mark rumors as such, no worries). Of course it is also meant to be interactive, so, if you have a Sir-Patrick-related question or a comment or whatever, feel free to chime in and I'll try to answer it. I can't guarantee that I'll always have an answer, though. He is a rather fascinating individual with lots and lots of different aspects (which is partly why I like him so much), so, as I said, trying to know all about him is definitely not an easy task. Anyways... to start this whole thing, I thought I'd provide you with a) a link that points to recent pictures of Sir Patrick AND b ) information about what he's up to at the moment. a) The recent pictures can be found here. There were taken at OzTrek2, a Star Trek convention in Melbourne, Australia. Sir Patrick attended it on January 30th. b ) Next week (on Feb 18-21) Sir Patrick is going to perform with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in their version of Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex. He won't sing, though, he'll "only" narrate. (Pity, isn't it?) More information can be found here. He has also hinted at the fact that he will be back on a theater stage soon, so, he's up to something in that regard as well. Furthermore, if you have Twitter, you can follow my Sir-Patrick-News account over there at: http://twitter.com/PatStewartNews

    My first autographed Trek pic. I bought it thru the mail when I was a teenager. I didn't re-discover it until about a month or so ago..It was in an old photo album. I'm very surprised that it survived all my seperations and moves..It's such a beautiful pic of Grace.. I love the hair..Back then I even had a 45 she did..I believe the name of the song was 'Take a Star Trip'..She had a great singing voice. Didn't I hear recently that she was puting out a compilation CD of her songs? If anyone hears of this, please let me know..

    May 17, 1943 The Memphis Belle flies its 25th bombing mission On this day in 1943, the crew of the Memphis Belle, one of a group of American bombers based in Britain, becomes the first B-17 crew to complete 25 missions over Europe. The Memphis Belle performed its 25th and last mission, in a bombing raid against Lorient, a German submarine base. But before returning back home to the United States, film footage was shot of Belle's crew receiving combat medals. This was but one part of a longer documentary on a day in the life of an American bomber, which included dramatic footage of a bomber being shot out of the sky, with most of its crew parachuting out, one by one. Another film sequence showed a bomber returning to base with its tail fin missing. What looked like damage inflicted by the enemy was, in fact, the result of a collision with another American bomber. The Memphis Belle documentary would not be released for another 11 months, as more footage was compiled to demonstrate the risks these pilots ran as they bombed "the enemy again and again and again-until he has had enough." The film's producer, Lieutenant Colonel William Wyler, was known for such non-military fare as The Letter, Wuthering Heights, and Jezebel. A fictional film about the B-17, called Memphis Belle, was released in 1990, starring John Lithgow, Matthew Modine, and Eric Stoltz.
