A Perfect Explanation of the Ideal Relationship Between Designers and Engineers

Quick question: How many executives do you know that can do renderings?ArtCenter graduate Jon Ikeda is one of those rare designers that have risen through the ranks to become a high-level executive. As Vice President and General Manager of Acura, Ikeda brings 30 years of Honda/Acura experience--primarily from the design side--to the table. This gives him a perspective that few Veeps and C-suiters possess, and in our upcoming Acura story, we'll show you how that benefits the company. Not to menti...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Teaches a Masterclass About Writing a Great Death in “Project Daedalus”

Can Star Trek: Discovery not destroy my soul every week? While the show has done its best job of keeping tension and emotions high, this week’s episode, “Project Daedalus,” is the season’s saddest and most intense yet. At the same time, it was also a masterclass of how to write a great death. As we’ve seen already multiple times, Season 2 has made it a point to show up Season 1 in terms of characterization, storyline, and overall depth of meaning, and this week’s sad death continues tha...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: “If Memory Serves” is the First Truly Sad Episode of the Season

Finally, in Star Trek: Discovery ’s eighth episode of the season, “If Memory Serves,” we get Ethan Peck as Spock. As a huge Spock fan, I found it pitch perfect. There were actually several pitch perfect moments in this hour, even though the entire episode hit a depressing chord overall. Yes, after several high-flying, adventure-filled episodes, we have gotten our first truly sad one. It was deeply emotional: haunting, heartbreaking, and just downright somber. Here’s how my heart broke thro...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Manages to Make Spock Even More Fascinating With “Light and Shadows”

I think tonight’s Star Trek: Discovery episode was our first official filler episode for the season. Titled, “Light and Shadows,” I expected a lot more than what we got. Even though it worked a little like “Point of Light” in that it moved existing plot points along and set up some new ones, the episode ultimately left us with, to be crude, figurative blue balls (even as it added a fascinating new angle to Spock). Here’s why. Spock’s coordinates The episode itself is about Pike and ...

Star Trek: Discovery Stars Break Down a More Outrageous Spocks Debut, His Complicated Bond With Burnham

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Thursday’s Star Trek: Discovery. Spock finally made his Star Trek: Discovery debut this week… but he’s quite a bit different from the coldly logical Vulcan we’re used to, isn’t he? When Burnham tracked down her long-lost brother in Thursday’s episode, he was, well, freaking out — muttering logical doctrines to himself in a remote cave, and obsessed with the Red Angel. She brought him back to the Discovery for medical attention, and Section 31’s Captain ...

Not Even a Wild Original Series Connection Could Save Star Trek: Discovery From Itself

In a hard swerve from the first season, Star Trek: Discovery’s sophomore outing has been a lot happier to leave its overarching story with Spock simmering in the background as it focused on mostly standalone, classically Star Trek tales. It’s worked great so far, but tonight’s episode tried to have it both ways, and…Read more...

Rare Star Wars, superhero toys and much more to be auctioned

George Lucas made zillions of dollars by wisely holding onto the merchandising rights for “Star Wars.” Now, some folks who made him rich by buying those Storm Trooper action figures and miniature X-Wing Fighters – as well as those who were more partial to superhero, “Star Trek,” “Lord of the Rings” and other pop-culture based playthings – stand to earn a few bucks themselves. Prop Store’s first Vintage Toys & Collectibles Live Auction starts at 11 a.m. Thursday and Friday, with more than 750 lot...

Star Trek: Discoverys Ethan Peck on Landing the Role of Spock — and That Controversial Hair and Beard

The long wait is almost over, Star Trek: Discovery fans. After a half-season of hints and teases, we finally get our first look at a young Spock in Thursday’s episode (CBS All Access, 8:30/7:30c), with Ethan Peck stepping into the iconic role played by Leonard Nimoy on the original Trek TV series. Peck — a veteran of Gossip Girl and Madam Secretary, and the grandson of legendary actor Gregory Peck — knows full well what huge shoes he’s about to fill… even though he didn’t know whose shoes they...

Kawhi Leonard's First New Balance Shoe Has A Lot Riding On It

Amid all the physics-shattering dunks and unparalleled drip of NBA All-Star Weekend, New Balance quietly unveiled the OMN1S, Kawhi Leonard's first signature sneaker. Like, really quietly: That teaser shrewdly underscores the main challenge New Balance has faced as they check back into the fiercely competitive performance basketball market with Kawhi Leonard—the NBA's Mr. Spock; he of the savage postgame shutdowns and viral maniacal giggles—as their leading man. How do you market a spok...

‘Star Trek’ Animated Series for Kids is Coming to Nickelodeon

There’s already a new Star Trek animated series in the works for CBS All Access that will let Rick and Morty writer Mike McMahan play with the support crew on the lower decks of one of the least important ships in Starfleet. But CBS Television Studios is really keen on wringing out the Star Trek brand for all it’s worth, so there’s a different kind of Star Trek animated series in the works elsewhere.

“An Obol for Charon” May be the Best Episode of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Yet

This latest Star Trek: Discovery episode, “An Obol for Charon,” was a real emotional doozy. This has got to be one of the best episodes of Discovery so far. While prior episodes have entertained while setting up the overall mystery of Red Angel, “An Obol for Charon” took a break from the story to give us everything Star Trek is all about. Let’s get into what made this episode such a great summation of Star Trek ’s mission statement. Discovering new life The problem for ...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Adds a Building Block to Its New Season With “Point of Light”

At first I thought this week’s Star Trek: Discovery episode, “Point of Light,” was a little all over the place. But the more I reflect on this, I think this episode should be thought of as a building block. Did it make a lot of narrative sense? Maybe not. But does it set the stage for what’s going down the rest of the season? Absolutely. With that said, let’s talk about the building blocks we were privy to this week. Spock, Michael and the Red Angel Something we’ve already known c...

Extras for an Hour, Voyagers for a Lifetime: 'Live Long and Evolve'

None Those were the days. Father and son huddled around a glowing TV screen, eagerly awaiting the next Star Trek episode. It was our ritual. The two of us would gather at a set time, sprawling on a tattered sofa with an armful of snacks: pastries, popcorn, maybe even ice cream. For an hour our lives were suspended; we were no longer citizens of planet Earth—neither pubescent grade schooler nor certified civil engineer. For an hour, we were extras aboard Captain Jean-Luc Picard's USS Enterprise...

In Its Second Season Premiere, ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Learns How to Have Fun

We’re back in the saddle again! Welcome to Star Trek: Discovery, Season 2, where we have a ton more fun around these parts than last season.
