I'm guessing that the memorial we see in the trailer is for Pike: "Harrison" attacks Starfleet and Pike is killed. Kirk goes against orders and pursues "Harrison." Action ensues. People (guest stars)...

Never read the stories myself. Saw it with the family over the weekend and we all loved it. At the end it said "Based on Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass" or similar. So it's a...

As much as I love TOS (and I do - I grew up with it) the original Enterprise absolutely screams 1960's design and shoestring budget. It's essentially two rockets connected to a cigar shaped body...

I tried to watch some of the early episodes. Ugh! Maybe I should give them another try, but right now I guess I'm in the minority. The acting was so bad, especially Cawley, that it was unwatchable to...

I remember an interview with Majel B-R in which she said that NASA engineers told GR that the original Enterprise "would go a$$ over tea kettle" as soon as its engines were fired up. Something to do...

When you get right down to it: isn't the design of most of the Trek ships pretty ridiculous from an engineering standpoint? They were meant to look good on screen, not be functional spaceships.

I'm certainly not a DW expert, but to a casual fan like me: all that regeneration stuff FEELS like a re-boot. With each new Doctor, you don't just get a new actor, you get a whole new character.

Why you wanna rain on our parade like that? It's fun (for some of us) to speculate about this stuff!

Yes, officially it's canon. But canon is a myth. It came much later and was applied after the fact for TOS. As the Trek 'verse expanded and became more and more complex it became necessary to impose...
