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.

Star Trek: Into Darkness (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

As a piece of intelligent science fiction J. J. Abrams’s new ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ film is only middling, but as an action film it is really quite good. It has some arresting images, some very engaging character development and perhaps two or three too many explosive action scenes. A saboteur apparently within the Starfleet […]

Star Trek Into Darkness (film review by Frank Ochieng).

In 2009, director J.J. Abrams revitalized the theatrical ‘Star Trek’ franchise by instilling a distinctive and decorative charge that provided avid Trekkie enthusiasts with a renewed sense of adventure and action. In predictably borrowing, the overused legendary phrase ‘to boldly go where no man has gone before’, Abrams skillfully did just that gesture but with […]

Captain, there’s a remote control wessel in the sky.

Expect the incidence of UFO reports to climb steeply as this Star Trek enthusiast demonstrates his fully functional remote control flying Star ship Enterprise model in the skies. Got to love that.

Star Trek Into Darkness… 3rd trailer. Bad Federation versus good Federation.

Here’s the 3rd fun-packed trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, showing some of that Bad Federation versus Good Federation action. For author Stephen Hunt’s spoilery theory and guesswork about the next Trek movie, read his mirror universe musings from November last year here. Will he be proved right, will he be wrong? Only time will […]
