Star Trek – The Animated Series Episode 11: The Terratin Incident By Gail Gerard

It was with a heavy heart that I started this article. I found out from my mother that her older sister, my beloved aunt who has been battling health problems for a number of years now, is on a ventilator in the hospital. According to my uncle, it’s only a matter of time now. As I clicked on my Netflix, I was hoping that this episode would be like many of the ones to come before–so ridiculously ludicrous that it would...

Watch as cast members get stung by the neutron cream prank during filming of Star Trek Into Darkness

Concealed in a behind-the-scenes featurette on the recently-released Star Trek Into Darkness DVD, the prank sees Cumberbatch and co-stars Karl Urban and John Cho advised that they must wear protective clothing – including dots of cream on their face – while filming in a high-tech laboratory. The Sherlock actor even reads a signed contract to camera about the safety measures, which he soon realises is an announcement that they are a...

Why I Love STAR TREK By Eric Gator-Cone

I was recently given this assignment: write something, about why I love STAR TREK. I don’t know if this will be an easy task, as there are probably more reasons than you care to know about, but…I’m going to try to give it my best shot. I mean, what have I got to lose (Besides readers…)? It can only help me, learn more about who I am, and it gives you (unfortunate audience) an opportunity to find out what makes...

Alice Eve: I am a nerd, not a geek

Here is a interview that the Metro did with Alice Eve.  You play Dr Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness. Were you aware of her exalted position as the mother, eventually, of James Kirk’s son? I watched the series when I was younger because it was on at 5.20 on a Saturday afternoon and my grandfather used to watch it. But I didn’t know who she was until I got the part and then I did my research. Obviously, she’s a super-brain. How...

Star Trek: The Original Series Part 14: Bring on the Klingon & what’s the (anti)matter with Lazarus? by Rick Austin

Klingons are as much a part of the Star Trek universe as the USS Enterprise, and have featured in every series made, but it all started here. With the Cold War being on everybody’s mind back in the ‘60s a villain had to be created to represent an opposing force to the Federation, and the make-up for the Romulans was too expensive to recreate on a regular basis. Gene Coon created the Klingons, and with some quickly-applied shoe polish...
