More Star Trek news than you can shake a Klingon disruptor at.

The Star Trek Experience is reopening in Vegas. Yahoo! Now I don't have to make my own Warp Core Breach.

The upcoming Star Trek MMORPG may suck me in but I still think this Klingon "Raptor" class ship looks like crap. I prefer the old school ship look to the blah Next Gen style that's been here since the 80's. And what's with the Klingon's naming a ship? The whole thing is they're too busy kicking ass to bother with naming their ships. That's why they just use classifications like "D-7."

Bryan Fuller of "Pushing Daisies" wants to bring the Trek back to television. I'd forgottent that Fuller has a lot of Trek experience as a writer/ producer on two of the t.v. series. His vision is a retro-Trek utilizing the 60's style. I love this idea which is why it will never see the light of day.

The entire Next Gen cast including Patrick Stewart will be reuniting on an upcoming episode of Family Guy.

I love the original Trek but the idea of the series on Blu Ray makes me ill. The print/ quality of the original stock just isn't that good not to mention the fact it was shot to be displayed on the crappy tvs of the era. Under DVD quality you can see Shatner sweat under Klieg lights and easily discern where Nimoy's rubber ears are glued on.

I'd like to see Harold Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin movies come out on Blu-Ray. With my Dolby THX surround stereo system, it should be phenomenal.

This is why I prefer my porn on old school DVD.

Shatner doesn't sweat. That's merely the surrounding air's moisture paying him homage.

I'm glad the Star Trek Experience back to Vegas...I didn't get to see it when I was there last.

Actually I already was excited about the new movie...mostly because of the actors (not the one playing Kirk though...)...I kind of wanted to see what a new batch of kids were going to do with these roles, if they were up to it, as it were.

eww! That Raptor looks cheaper than an old Starbird

(It was a wicked cool toy, though)

But, you'll be able to see Yvonne Craig's Orion slave girl as it was intended. In total Hi-Def.
