Let it snow, commands Trek’s Picard (kind-of).

Here’s a little Xmas Star Trek mash-up, so never say I don’t bring you anything for Christmas. Let it snow? Make it so, Make it so, Make it so! Thanks to Mair Davis for spotting this one.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

Klingon Bird-Of-Prey: Owners’ Workshop Manual by Rick Sternbach and Ben Robinson (book review).

Whether it’s a lack of imagination or merely a need to keep to a combat space vessel that works, the Klingon Bird-Of-Prey in its various sizes has kept to a similar configuration throughout its development. Then again, although it’s not said here, so do the Federation Starfleet vessels are as well. This handbook by artist […]

Santa? No! Singing Sulu.

Star Trek actor George Takei is in this rather amusing Old Navy commercial for the USA’s Black Friday sale… pleading with viewers for some peace and harmony, Federation style. When there’s a cheap sweater to be had, George, you can fire that concept out of the ship like a spent photon torpedo. I’m all elbows […]

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Q & A by Keith RA DeCandido (book review).

Anniversaries are funny old events. They’re a celebration of the past while at the same time, an opportunity to look to the future. This is especially the case with ‘Q & A’, written for ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’s 20th anniversary in 2007, it looks to the very first meeting we had with Picard, et […]

Star Trek: Myraid Universes: Echoes And Refractions (book review)

It’s the little things that make all the difference. Missing a train that means you strike up a conversation with someone on the platform and they turn out to be your soul mate – if you had caught that train, would you have met them? Would it matter as you never would have known the […]
