Star Trek Beyond (2016) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Justin Lin of the ‘Fast & Furious’ films directs the new ‘Star Trek’ film with an adventure a little scaled-down from the previous film and much more like an episode of the original TV series. We are given a lot of action, as we might expect with Lin, but the story has an old MacGuffin […]

Star Trek Beyond (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Some diehard ‘Star Trek’ fans may not necessarily feel that the Justin Lin-directed third installment of this Science Fiction/space saga film franchise ‘boldly goes where no man has gone before’ creatively. Surprisingly, Lin (director of two ‘Fast & Furious’ flicks) shows some engaging and intriguing heft in ‘Star Trek Beyond’ as the adventurous exploits of the USS Enterprise crew […]

Here’s that latest trailer for Star Trek Beyond, featuring – for some reason best known to J.J. – the song Sledgehammer by Rihanna? Possibly the worst artistic pairing since that awful hold-your-lighter-up musical parody that accompanied the opening sequence of Star Trek Enterprise?

Set Phasers To Stun: 50 Years Of Star Trek by Marcus Berkmann   (book review)

In many respects, Marcus Berkmann’s book, ‘Set Phasers To Stun: 50 Years Of Star Trek’, is a candid look at ‘Star Trek’s half-century and he admits that it can also be difficult to say anything new, even from a British perspective, on the subject. However, along the way, he also quotes from various Trek books […]

Star Trek 365: The Original Series by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdman (book review).
