The Life of Riley -By Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

Personal log: Lt. Kevin Thomas Riley, Stardate 2820.5 Well, it looks like I’m in hot water again. No surprises there. I swear, sometimes I think that if I didn’t have bad luck I wouldn’t have any at all. At Starfleet Academy we were taught about how Einstein figured out a better way to balance the laws of the electromagnetic field with the laws of classical mechanics. Most of it’s still a puzzle to me, I was...

The character — Spock’s betrothed, whom she...

Fan Film Review: Star Wreck – In The Pirkinning By Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

  In the reaches of deep space, a fleet of starships led by Captain Pirk are preparing to enter a strange dimensional rift called the maggot hole. Is it good? Bad? Who knows? But that’s where the story starts, and it’s quite an odd one. After this brief intro, the film flashes back to where the previous Star Wreck apparently ended, with dim-witted Captain Pirk and his crew stranded on Earth in our time period. Plingon...

10 Books that would have made “A Piece Of The Action” worse… By Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

Sigma Iotia II was one mixed-up planet. In the original series episode A Piece of the Action, Captain Kirk and the USS Enterprise had to do damage control on this world because the clumsy crew of the ship Horizon left some items on the planet, including leaving behind some books. One book was called Chicago Mobs of the Twenties, and the inhabitants of this world – viewing it as some sort of holy relic – have modelled their entire...

This series has been given a rating of PG-13 (US) and 12A (UK) Chapter 11 “Commander Data?” came Captain Picard’s voice over the comm. Data sighed and nodded. “Data here, sir,” he responded, looking over at Dreamfinder, asleep in his bed, curled up like a little kitten. She looked so sweet, so young as she slept. “Commander, have you seen the Sivaoan diplomat? We’re in orbit around Sivao and...

Star Trek 3 Release Date Confirmed

Star Trek 3 movie release date will be on the 50th anniversary of the series on 2016, but when J.J.

In addition, both “Attack the Block” director Joe Cornish and former producer and co-writer Alex...
