There have been some reports that Trek Remastered may be released on HD DVD as early as this year. Last we heard they wouldn’t be finished with all the episodes until next year. TrekMovie is looking into this and will report back when we get it all sorted out. Of course HD versions of TOS-R are showing up on XBox Live already if you cannot wait.
Babylon 5’s Claudia Christian claims that William Shatner made some unwanted advances on her when she was a guest star on T.J. Hooker. In an interview with retroCRUSH the actress says the Shat tried to ‘shove his tongue’ down her throat. She also says she wished she punched him in his corset.
StarTrek.com has some details on the upcoming History Channel Star Trek documentary "Star Trek: Beyond the Final Frontier".

TrekMovie has got a tip that Richard Arnold had said (at last weekend’s London Con) that Trek XI will be out in July 2008, and he was citing an exec at Paramount. Originally we reported that the film would be in the summer, but just recently we have reported that this had moved to the winter of 2008 (based on a number of sources). The Arnold comment has not yet been confirmed, but we are looking into it. Regardless these things do tend to move around this far out.
In a new interview, Alan Ruck talks about bringing back Star Trek Generations Captain Harriman in Of Gods And Men. He is happy to give the hapless character another go, and just seems happy to be working. Starburst Interview excerpts at TrekWebThere
There is a rumor that Steve Jobs may announce the availability of the Star Trek films (along with other Paramount titles) on iTunes. The Original Series has already started showing up, as we reported earlier.
Spike’s Star Trek Uniform site has added a page for the possible web-based animated series first reported here on TrekMovie.com. They have got a bit more detail behind the different uniforms for the show, check it out. The Memory Alpha-ites can’t seem to decide if the show deserves a page or not, and have kind of shoe-horned it into a page on undeveloped projects. TrekMovie says…give them a page!
For those missing Star Trek: Enterprise since The Original Series Remastered replaced it in syndication, the SciFi channel has started airing the show. They ran their first block of 4 shows yesterday, and will do a 4 hour Enterprise block every Monday starting at 7pm.
Last but not least, I am back in LA. This morning I walked right by JJ Abrams today at LAX…didn’t get a chance to chat, not cool to bother a man on his way to a plane
