by Kayla Iacovino , Filed under: Star Trek Beyond , 75 comments


It’s official: filming has begun in Dubai for Star Trek Beyond, and there are some (rather unrevealing) photos of a helicopter shoot floating around the web. Don’t get too excited; this is reportedly a second unit shoot, meaning the actors wouldn’t have been present, and there are no interesting sets, costumes, or anything really to see. These photos and video are of so little substance, we can’t even see a reason to throw a spoiler tag on this one.

by Staff , Filed under: Shuttle Pod,TNG , 73 comments


The Next Generation may not be celebrating an important milestone (like VOY’s 20 years this year or TOS’s 50 years next year), but we felt it was time to take a look back at what is arguably the most commercially successful incarnation of the Star Trek franchise.

What would you keep the same? The trio dive into topics such as characters, story lines, message, and even costumes, set dressings, and hair styles. And starting today, you can listen to the podcast on iTunes or on Pocket Casts!

Introducing Shuttle Pod – The TrekMovie Podcast: V’Ger v. Nomad September 11, 2015

by Staff , Filed under: Feature Films (TMP-NEM),TOS, , 76 comments


A few months ago, TrekMovie writer Jared Whitley made a casual comment that the TOS episode “The Changeling” was better than Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Fellow TM writer Brian Drew picked up the gauntlet Jared threw down, and the two decided to debate the respective merits of the two tales, which are similar in plot if not in tone, theme, or scope.

To carry out the debate, we have inaugurated Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie Podcast. Let us know in the comment section what you think about the debate and the idea of TM podcast in general.

Michael Dorn joins the judges as they inspect the contestants final creations.


We’re into the ninth season of Syfy’s Face Off, which continues to be the network’s highest rated unscripted series. This week’s make-up theme is Star Trek, so I was eager to see where they took the challenge. The episode is in the series typical two challenge format, however this time the way they tie it back to Star Trek is that in the first round the contestants have to create an alien design based on a different background assigned to each person, and in the second they’re tasked to update it for a Next Generation era feel.
