Jean-Luc Picard raps philosophical.

Jean-Luc Picard gets the Eclectic Method treatment when the Star Trek captain decides to go off on a decisively philosophical rap-ditty-song type thing. Not sung in Klingon, sadly (like an opera), but you can’t have everything.

Prelude to Axanar (Star Trek mock-umentary).

Here’s an interesting little ditty, Prelude to Axanar, a non-profit Star Trek Kickstarter-type thing for a proposed war movie covering the big Klingon versus Federation dust-up which kicked off in the era between Archer and Kirk. By way of a taster for the main event, this is a mock Federation documentary that covers the war. Very professionally […]

Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015) a brief reminisce by: GF Willmetts.

In many respects with ‘Star Trek’, Leonard Nimoy as the half-human/half-Vulcan Starfleet officer Mr. Spock became the idiom of friendly aliens. If you look at all the aliens in SF film and television up to 1966, there weren’t many who were. We had a certain Time Lord in ‘Doctor Who’ but even then it wasn’t […]

Star Trek: Music From The Video Games by various artists (album review)

Despite the potential that obviously exists, one might argue there has never been a solid ‘Star Trek’ video game that had mass appeal. Sure ‘Star Trek: Online’ came close and ‘Borg’ is pretty decent but they’ve never been what they could be. Other entries have come across as insipid and, frankly, a bit of a […]

Star Trek: Excelsior: Forged In Fire by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels (book review).

If one was to use the latest ‘Star Trek’ film as a barometer, the character of Sulu isn’t up to much. In fact, there may be an argument that the ‘Original Series’ actor George Takei is much more interesting than his on-screen counterpart. Despite this, there is much love for Hikaru Sulu, he seemed to […]

Star Trek Enterprise: Kobayashi Maru by Michael A. Martin & Andy Mangels (book review).

 As a two-decade long Trekker, could I give a ‘Star Trek’ novel a bad review? Should I compromise my ideals and pretend everything is rosy or do I tarnish the legacy of one of my favourite shows? Such an impossible decision. Thankfully, that’s what the ‘Kobayashi Maru’ is all about, the impossible choice, the no-win […]

Expect the incidence of UFO reports to climb steeply as this Star Trek enthusiast demonstrates his fully functional remote control flying Star ship Enterprise model in the skies. Got to love that.
