Why I Love Star Trek… And What On Earth Is Wrong With Me?! By Rick Austin

One of my first experiences of Star Trek being a part of my life was the book I had as a kid. You may know my story already, how I had a Trouble With Tribbles photobook, with stills from the show and word bubbles spouting the dialogue. You may know about how I read it countless times when on holiday in Spain, simply because all the comic books there were in Spanish and I wanted words I could understand to go with the pictures. But is...

JJ Abrams believes that the Star Trek game ‘arguably hurt’ Into Darkness success

Speaking to GamerHub, JJ Abrams explained that Namco Bandai’s tie-in Star Trek: The Video Game “was obviously a big disappointment”, and that he walked away from the project early on after realising “that it was not going in a place where we were going to get what we wanted…” “To me, the video game could have been something that actually really benefited the series and was an exciting, fun...
