‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Continues to Atone for Past Sins With “Saints of Imperfection”

How can every episode of this season’s Star Trek: Discovery be the best episode ever? Just last week, I thought “An Obol for Charon” was at the top of the pack. But somehow , this week’s episode, “Saints of Imperfection,” is just as amazing, if not better, thanks to the writers’ amazing ability to rewrite the wrongs that occurred in the first season. Let’s get into what went down this week. Culber is Back! Can you believe it! I can’t believe it! But I don’t care! I’m just glad D...

‘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. CBS is teaming up with Nickelodeon to develop a new Star Trek animated series that will be gear...

On Star Trek: TNG, those aren't Captain Picard's hands holding his flute

Sir Patrick Stewart doesn't play the Reskian flute, or any flute for that matter. The trick worked on me at least, because I hadn't noticed even after seeing this episode several times over the last 26 (!) years. From Wikipedia: ...As neither Stewart nor Hughes could play their instruments, it required a number of camera techniques to be used in order to disguise the musicians playing just off screen. Husband and wife duo Natalie and Bryce Martin played the piano and tin whistle respective...

A good rule of thumb if you’re going to threaten to publish nude photos of the richest man on the planet unless he says you’re not working with the Saudi government is: Probably don’t do that!

Zachary Quinto Still Hopeful ‘Star Trek 4’ Will Happen Eventually [TCA 2019]

At the beginning of 2019, news came that a fourth Star Trek film featuring the younger crew of the USS Enterprise had been shelved. The culprit was reportedly contract disputes involving Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. However, not everyone is giving up hope on the sequel coming together. Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto was on a Television Critics Association panel for his upcoming AMC series NOS4A2. After the panel, /Film asked if he was surprised to learn Star Trek 4 was on the back b...

“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 ...

A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Brings Out Star Trek: Discovery's Best

Pretty much every other episode of Star Trek is a good “Hey, everything’s broken?” or “We encountered a thing and everything’s broken?” type of episode. On the latest Discovery, basically five of those episodes happened at once—but after pulling themselves out of multiple wringers, the crew might be in better form…Read more...

Watch: Extended 'Star Trek' Fan Film 'Temporal Anomaly' Launches

"There's been some kind of anomaly. The crew has vanished. Can you resist?" For die-hard Trekkies only. A new Star Trek fan film has finally launched, after nearly six years in development.

‘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...

Patrick Stewart Was Going to Turn Down the Picard Spin-Off Until He Heard the Pitch

The upcoming Picard Star Trek spin-off series almost didn’t have its beloved captain at the helm. It was announced in August 2018 that Patrick Stewart would reprise his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in an upcoming Star Trek series for CBS All Access, but it turns out it took a little wrangling for the actor to boldly return to the role. The last time we saw Patrick Stewart as one of the most beloved TV characters of all time was in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis, after which he had no intention...
