  1. When ads appear like that try refreshing the page.
  2. Glad to hear you are ok. Yeah I gave up on conventions after the last one I went to some 8-10 years ago. There was fun to be had but mostly just a huge, bloated cash grab. I can just imagine how much more bloated they are now.
  3. No one else has been confirmed yet but hopefully at least a few will show up. The new series may have a name, CBS filed for a trade mark application for Star Trek Reliant on the same day Stewart announced his return. Other new shows are in the works too so this could be unrelated. It could mean a new Kirk and Co era show set on the Reliant. Nothing is confirmed though.
  4. Perhaps, or they just don't like the recent directions Star Trek has gone. To me, the Kelvin Timeline films and Discovery are flawed entries compared to what came before but they're better than nothing. I am having a good time with them and that's what matters to me. We can't stop progress but, some people can be very frightened of change.
  5. ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Showrunner Promises Season 2 Character Exploration And Tying Up Canon Loose Ends This morning at Vulture Fest in New York City there was a Star Trek: Discoverypanel titled “The Future is Definitely Female,” featuring co-showrunner Gretchen J. Berg along with actresses Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Mary Chieffo and Mary Wiseman. TrekMovie was there and we will have a full report on the panel tomorrow, but today start with some of Berg’s comments about the second season, canon and future of the show. Season 2 clues in season 1 finale + more character devlopment Executive producer and co-showrunner Gretchen J. Berg didn’t want to give any spoilers for Discovery’s second season, currently in production, but hinted about the direction of the show: Discovery‘s loose ends will be tied up into canon When discussing the setting of Star Trek: Discovery, Gretchen J. Berg reiterated how important it is for the creators to fit the show into Trek’s established canon: The co-showrunner also acknowledged that the designs on the show have to work with a modern audience: Promises even more diversity in Discovery One of the most touted things about Star Trek: Discovery is the diversity of its cast of characters. Berg noted that diversity has always been part of the franchise, and promised more: More from Vulture Festival panel to come Tomorrow we will have a full report on the panel with more pictures, so stay tuned... https://trekmovie.com/2018/05/20/star-trek-discovery-showrunner-promises-season-2-character-exploration-and-tying-up-canon-loose-ends/
  6. ^That illusion 'explained': Listening again today I only hear Laurel. NEW: I hear whatever the word being shown onscreen is but if I close my eyes or look away I can change the word to be whichever I want it to be.
  7. I hear yanny. https://mobile.twitter.com/CloeCouture/status/996218489831473152/video/1 Some people are saying when they went back and listened again later they could hear the other word.
  8. I believe it, I was alive then too. What I can't believe is how worthless money has become. A Cagney and Lacy marathon on the big screen, eh? I didn't' know they had those back then. An early version of Fathom Events.
  9. Great Nose! About time it got the recognition it deserved.
  10. The big news for April was Paramount’s new CEO announcing that the studio had not just one, but two Star Trek films in development. One was the previously announced follow-up to Star Trek Beyond, and the other was a new (and “seperate”) film, based on an idea from Quentin Tarantino. While this may look like it’s part of expanded “Star Trek Cinematic Universe,” Scotty actor Simon Pegg says it at least didn’t start with some grand plan. Speaking to Film School Rejects while promoting his new film Terminal, Pegg explained why there are two films currently in the works: Turning a corner towards production on Star Trek 4 Pegg also clarified again that he and his Star Trek Beyond writing partner Doug Jung are not involved with penning Star Trek 4, as that is being done by John Payne and Patrick McKay. The actor also noted the recent hiring of director S.J. Clarkson was a sign that production on Star Trek 4 is nearing: Doesn’t think Tarantino Trek will be Pulp Fiction in space With regards to the Tarantino Star Trek project, currently being penned by Mark L. Smith, Pegg again talked about being excited by the notion and tried to allay any fears fans may have that the film could introduce the kind of over-the-top violence which Tarantino is best known for. Speaking to ComingSoon Pegg said: Recently Pegg has noted that he doesn’t even know if he will be in the Tarantino Trek film, but that may soon change as he told ComingSoon he could soon be in the loop: I haven’t read the treatment yet, but I might be able to in the next couple of weeks, so I’m excited about that. https://trekmovie.com/2018/05/16/simon-pegg-explains-why-there-are-two-star-trek-films-in-development/
  11. Nick Meyer spoke last night at a Shakespeare and Star Trek event at the UCI School of Humanities, where he explained a comment made last year that he was “working on another Star Trek project” that would be a miniseries. An audience member at the event asked him about that miniseries. “A while back there were reports that you might be working on a Star Trek miniseries, is there any truth to that, if you’re allowed to say anything about that?” “No, I can say something,” replied Meyer. “I was hired to write a stand-alone Star Trek-related trilogy, [details of which] I can’t discuss or I’d have to kill you. I was writing it for CBS [All] Access...but at the moment CBS is at a war with Paramount/Viacom[about merging]. “They’re in a power struggle which turned really nasty this past week when CBSdecided to sue Viacom. So I don’t think my project is going anywhere in a hurry, because everything is on hold while they sort out this merger business. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.” https://www.trektoday.com/content/2018/05/meyer-on-proposed-star-trek-miniseries/
  12. Yeah, it's pretty bad.
  13. Too bad there isn't a green wine option. lol
  14. Yep, mine too! I do still have a handful of little, non-posable figures, unassembled models, some tiny ships and a couple unopened collectibles. I also have a box of Star Trek Ongoing comic books but I am planning to sell those back to the store to make room for two Discovery series currently running which are better, imo.
  15. Star Trek: Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis Reunite on 'Discovery' Set Jonathan Frakes has been hard at work directing the second episode of the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. During the shoot, he had a visitor related to his best-known role in the Star Trek franchise. Marina Sirtis, Frakes’ Star Trek: The Next Generation co-star, visited the Star Trek: Discovery set in Toronto. Read more...
  16. What happened to them... did your Mom throw them out with your comic books?
  17. First rule of lost glasses, always check the top of your head first.
  18. LOL! Yeah we probably could assemble them without our glasses.
  19. Yeah. Joan Collins. I just recently heard she is going to be on this up coming season of American Horror Story.
  20. They seem reasonably priced, I guess. Drop hints for them as a BD gift.
  21. Vic knows all, sees all. Actually it is an RSS feed from Startrek. com.
  22. They're coming to get you, Bethlehem. lol ;-)
  23. It was incredible. After episode 14 I was chewing my nails expecting the dreaded reset button. That they resolved those issues without pushing it is amazing. I plan to have a couple entire season 1 rewatches before next season Star Trek Lives!
  24. Don't worry, he's okay.
