The first ever, officially licensed Trek cruise is taking place in January, 2017. A good group of guest stars (headlined by William Shatner) will be joining all the Trek fans that attend. I’m really tempted to go on this since I’ve always wanted to try out a cruise and this looks to be a very special event. Click HERE to learn more and book your dream cruise now. Make it so!
A terrific new Trek fan film was put up about a week ago from the “Star Trek: Continues” team of amazing people. This is really a great fan film and touches on a number of episodes from the original series too. Check it out via the Vimeo viewer below or visit their webpage HERE to see this and other great episodes. This is only their fourth episode so far and it might be the best one yet. So, here is NEW “Star Trek” for everyone to enjoy – for free!
There is an effort and fund raising campaign going on now to recreate a new model of the Motion Picture Enterprise filming model. They are going to do it bigger and better than ever before.

About a week ago we lost a true legend. Leonard Nimoy or as he is known to geeks everywhere, Mr. Spock passed away. He certainly made a lasting impression on me and helped shape the life and type of person I am. I will certainly miss seeing him in future work and at conventions but I am so grateful to all he gave to us on “Star Trek” and all his other projects, photography and other work. He will be truly missed by all. I made a tribute video for him and you can check it out below. Thanks for the memories Leonard.
The Simpsons has always loved putting in gags from “Star Trek” on their show. Last week they did something really special and did an entire credit sequence featuring images that used the characters in classic Trek scenes. Very cool stuff and just goes to show how much everyone loves classic Trek still. CBS – give us a new classic Trek style series! PLEASE!
So, it was announced that the next Trek film is set to arrive on July 8, 2016. This news set down a target for those working on this film and is welcome news with all the recent changes in script and director. Roberto Orci is only one of the executive producers now and a new script/story seems to be in the works. Also, it is sounding like Justin Lin will be directing who is know for some of the “Fast and the Furious” films. Maybe Kirk and Spock will go undercover as speedy shuttle pilots – hehe! anyway, I’m happy we now have a target date and looking forward to another cool and fun Trek film in 2016!
Some great video and a preview of some of the bloopers coming in the season 7 TNG Blu-Ray set that will be here next week. Some great stuff in this short preview and it’s obvious all of these actors had a blast doing this series and loved their work and each other very much. Enjoy the clips!
