Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) (DVD review).

The first of the new batch of ‘Star Trek’ made a very big benchmark for the second film, ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ to equal. After violating several Starfleet directives and inadvertently reported by Spock (actor Zachery Quinto) being too honest, Kirk (Chris Pine) is demoted to first officer and the Vulcan to another starship. During […]

Star Trek into Darkness… alas, poor R2D2.

Okay, hands up. How many of you spotted R2D2 being blasted into space in the recent Star Trek into Darkness flick? Actually, we did, but thought we were going mad. Here’s the evidence of this rather odd Easter Egg. What next? A Klingon drinking in the cantina in the next Star Wars film?

Star Trek: The Art Of The Film by Mark Cotta Vaz (book review).

Just in case you’re getting withdrawal symptoms as to why there are no film books for the second ‘Star Trek’ film, ‘Countdown To Darkness’, this is a reminder for those who didn’t buy this book the first time that Mark Cotta Vaz’ book, ‘Star Trek: The Art Of The Film’ is still available. As I […]

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 […]

The Good That Men Do by Andy Mangels & Michael A. Martin (book review).

This book in 2007 marks the re-launch of the ENT universe and begins just before the show’s last episode to create a ret-con on […]

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 […]

Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness by Roberto Orci, Mike Johnson and David Messing (graphic novel review).

‘Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness’ is the prelude to the latest film ‘Star Trek: ‘Into Darkness’, which I suspect some of you out there might have seen already. Quite why having John Harrison on the cover beats me as he only has a cameo panel right at the end. How much to say about this […]

It was long ago and faraway and well before the remained worlds of new ‘Star Trek’, this was our new ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’. Twenty-one years after Captain Kirk, came Captain Picard. He of the shiny head led the new crew. They were so different, reflecting how far American society had moved on with […]

Enterprise versus Death Star. Who wins?

A surreal video shot in present day San Fran when the Enterprise from Star Trek turns up and dukes it out with the imperial forces of the Empire above the city! At least it answers the long-standing question about who would win a Star Trek Enterprise versus Death Star duel.
