Benedict Cumberbatch will be visiting Sesame Street

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch will be visiting Sesame Street soon, according to PBS, which posted the news to their Twitter account, along with a photo. The photo shows the Star Trek Into Darkness star with Sesame Street regulars Murray Monster and The Count, and was given the hashtag Counterbatch (as if C-Batch didn’t have enough monikers). No word yet on when the Cumberbatch episode will air, but it’s likely to be real...

Set your phaser to stunning – Valentine cookies

These amazingly geeky Star Trek: The Next Generation cookies come from Mike of Semi Sweet Designs. He’s like the suave bearded Riker of baked goods. I love how the uniforms are shaped like hearts. The detail is really great. They even have luster dust on the insignia pieces and disco dust for the transporter beam. Mike was even kind enough to share details on how to make your own Star Trek cookies. Make it so, number one. Be my...

Deep Space Time – a DS9 clock

The photo says it all its a Clock in the shape of the DS9 space station. The clock started out as a rare Star Trek toy, and was converted into a clock by Etsy sellerYOUgNeek. The underlying clock mechanism is a Sterling and Noble clock, with silver hands that match the painted ship perfectly. Either way, it’s a pretty cool addition to any DS9 fanatic’s collection. It’s available for $199.99 (£125.98) over on Etsy. Perhaps you trade...

pung ghap Hos? Klingon cabinet member quits High Council seat in Human-language speech -by Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

Decoded by Nyota Uhura, Stardate 2258.97 A minor cabinet member has chosen a memorable way to step down from his High Council seat, an event notable less for what he said than how he said it: The speech was submitted in the Human language known as English. Korlok, a representative from the House of Maktor in the Ketha province, invoked the language of the enemies of the Empire known as Humans in saying that he wouldn’t serve under the...

New Star Trek series ideas

A CBS insider leaked to us an announcement about shows in development for the fall 2014 season line up.

According to our source not one but two Star Trek related shows are in development. The first of the shows is a Police Procedural based in the Star Trek universe. The working title is...

Star Trek Replicator Nearing Reality?

Star Trek’s food replicator may soon become more science fact than science fiction. Back in May, 2013, NASA — as it sets its sights on manned missions to Mars — revealed that it was teaming up with Systems & Materials Research Consultancy (SMRC) on a 3D printer that can produce… food, and more specifically, pizza. SMRC actually won a six-month, $125,000 Small Business Innovation Research Grant from NASA to...

82 year old Leonard Nimoy has chronic lung disease

He has lived long and prospered. So it was understandable Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy preferred to put his feet and get pushed through a bustling airport in New York on Monday. A helpful airport attendant made sure it was full warp speed ahead for the octogenarian as he quickly pushed his wheelchair through the arrival lounge. The 82-year-old, who is most famous for his turn as Vulcan crew member Mr Spock, looked in a typically...

We get closer to a holodeck

Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking are playing poker together. No, this isn’t a bad physics joke. It’s a scene from “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” It takes place in a holodeck, a simulated-reality room in the fictional Star Trek universe. The three scientists — or at least computer-generated versions of them — have been transported to the 2300s to play cards with Lt. Cmdr. Data. “I don’t even know why I’m here in the...

Star Trek the Animated Series, Seaon 1, Episode 14–The Eye of the Beholder by Gail Gerard @AvgSupermom

  Hey kiddies it’s a new year, which means it’s time for me to get back to reviewing Star Trek: The Animated Series.

Out of all the episodes I’ve seen so far, this has been one of my favorites. Mostly because the alien of the week is so freaking...
