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 […]

Star Trek Beyond: new trailer with rubbish music.

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?

Star Trek, new TV series, new teaser trailer.

Here’s the first teaser for the new CBS Star Trek series on TV – doesn’t give much away, but it does hark back to the golden age, which will keep many increasingly rather superior vintage fans (myself included) happy.

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).

I reviewed ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation 365’ a couple years ago and now Abrams Books have let me loose on ‘Star Trek 365: The Original Series’ by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdman. Half the book is full of colour photographs and the rest with information. The ‘365’ denotes the pages and the […]

Star Trek Beyond (1st US trailer).

Here’s the official trailer for Star Trek Beyond – the US version we can understand, rather than the German, which we were hard pushed to, to be honest. Google translate notwithstanding. The Enterprise looks like it gets the mother of all dingings, leaving the crew stranded. Seems like some kind of suicide attack, led by […]

Star Trek Beyond trailer (German version).

The good news? The first trailer for the next Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, has arrived a week early. The bad news? You have to understand German to watch it! But hey, Ich bin ein Star Trek Fan, right? Where’s Idris Elba, that’s what I want to know? Maybe he’s too busy in Luther to […]
