Great Links: Quark Meets the Apocalypse + Sir Patrick Lobster + Spock’s Space Fun Helmet + More November 2, 2013

by Kayla Iacovino , Filed under: Great Links , trackback

Has it been a week already? Believe it or not, it’s already time for another Great Links. This week in Trek on the Web: Armin Shimerman Kickstarts the Apocalypse; Sir Patrick Stewart in his most challenging role yet: a lobster; play Star Trek with the Official Spock Space Fun Helmet; and MORE!


 

Armin Shimerman in cast of Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse (+ Kickstarter)
Our lovable Quark is working along side quite a cast of characters in the upcoming (currently being Kickstarted) feature film Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse. Check out this video Armin did with Harry Groener (Buffy’s ‘The Mayor’), and then go and check out the project. It looks like it’s going to be an entertaining film by some talented people!


Armin & Harry’s latest video


Official Kickstarter video

Sir Patrick Lobster… our favorite English captain tweeted a pic of his Halloween costume

The Star Trek Space Fun Helmet… just like the real thing!
Apparently, this is Official Star Trek Merchandise. Good think they labeled “SPOCK” in big black lettering. Otherwise, how would you know?

Rare Photos of Gene Roddenberry from the Roddenberry Entertainment Archives
The Roddenberry Archives have released a couple of intimate photos of the Great Bird of the Galaxy, Gene Roddenberry, during his normal life at home. The photos were posted exclusively on the Trek Initiative wikia page. The author of the post there writes:

“It’s unclear exactly when these pictures were taken, though they appear to be from around the late ’60s TOS time-frame.”

Ummm, ok.

2. Trek Lady - November 2, 2013

LOL! CoolPT, I wasn’t sure quite how to respond to this hodgepodge of stories, but I think you nailed it. :)

3. Phil DaGooner - November 2, 2013

Been a quiet week, huh?

4. Chancellor Gowron - November 2, 2013

Why didn’t Captain Picard ever dress like that?

5. Corrections - November 2, 2013

It’s not really candid shots of Roddenberry unless he’s railing Nichelle from all angles.

6. Bird of Prey - November 2, 2013

That helmet is hilarious!! :-D

Where is Q when you need him

8. Marja - November 2, 2013

I enjoyed the performance of Mrs Peel, the cat : )

Actually the “Apocalypse” movie looks pretty fun. Remember: “If they want to eat you — they’re not your friends!”

9. Kev-1 - November 2, 2013

Trek helmet also had decal for “Kirk.” At the time, it didn’t seem like such a great item, but it has a 70s charm now.

10. CmdrR - November 2, 2013

So, did Gene’s plant die from neglect or shame at being placed near the tacky statue?

Not sure about Sir Patrick’s Rock Lobster, but he seems to be enjoying it.

I remember seeing the Spock helmets when I was a wee nipper, but I don’t remember them coming with their own lens flares.

Good stuff, Kayla! Thank you!!!

11. Admiral Stedman - November 2, 2013

I hate when I get my space helmet mixed up with some other guys space helmet. I’d want my name on mine too. Space Lice are right up there with Ceti Eels.

12. crazydaystrom - November 2, 2013

I remember that helmet! Even as kids we were pretty much- WTF?!? It seemed so “Lost In Space” in its cheesiness. Not at all cool like the StarTrek Tracer Pistols that shot the tracer disks. Had a couple of those. God! Wish I still did!

And that Steward picture is hilarious! I literally LOL’d!

Thanks Kayla! Fun stuff…exclamation mark

STAR TREK 2016 NEWS ALERT — Joe Cornish to Direct, Filming Starts next Summer

http://collider.com/star-trek-3-joe-cornish/#more-292539

14. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

I’m sorry but who is Joe Cornish ? I never heard of him before.

15. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

Never mind, just found his IMDB page. The guy directed mostly TV shows & just one movie, Attack the Block! Why they would pick him over Rupert Wyatt ?

16. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 2, 2013

Did you not read the Collider link I provided? Wyatt is too busy?

That’t why I provided the link — it tells you who Cornish is and about Wyatt not being available? Is the link not working?

17. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

MJ,

I read your comment first & my reaction was, who ? Then I read the article & checked the IMDB page.

Why would they hire an inexperienced director to make the the 50th anniversary movie ?

18. Red Shirt Diaries - November 2, 2013

@Ahmed

MJ’s Collider link is working for me. It provides the info you are asking about. Go to Collider directly and find it if it’s not working for you???

MJ, thanks for breaking this huge Trek movie news on Trekmovie.com.

WELL DONE, MJ !!!!!

19. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 2, 2013

Ahmed, reading between the lines, it sounds like they have been working since May to find a director for the next movie, with Wyatt at the top of the list, and they haven’t gotten any takers. So my guess is that they are now on Plan B — trying to identify the best of the “up and coming” newbie directors.

Red Shirt, thanks man! I know this site is understaffed, so I am constantly monitoring other genre news sites so that I can help to break stories like this on Trekmovie.com. My pleasure to break the news here on possibly the biggest Star Trek news story during the 2nd half of 2013.

20. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

Variety is reporting that this guy, Joe Cornish, turned Star Trek 13 down back in May.

“No formal offer has been made and Cornish could pass on the project a second time. He last turned down the sci-fi tentpole in May.”

http://variety.com/2013/film/news/joe-cornish-star-trek-3-1200775433/

21. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

btw, nice job on breaking the news here, MJ. I read it first here when I came to the site & saw your link.

22. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 2, 2013

@20. I doubt this would be out if he wasn’t the guy. He’d have to be a complete dumb-ass to turn this down. I am 90% sure he will be the guy.

23. crazydaystrom - November 2, 2013

Hmm. Cornish would be an interesting choice. Attack the Block! is a great low budget sci fi film. He directed the young cast to some outstanding performances. And the alien creatures are damned ferocious and creepy. Wonder what he would do with a large budget?

24. crazydaystrom - November 2, 2013

Man! If a 2014 summer shoot is the goal it sure begs the question how far along is the script right now? Hope übermystery and secrecy is not going the be the road Bad Robot takes this time. Wow! And how will the 50th be acknowledged? Moviewise and/or otherwise? God, let it be great!

25. Red Dead Ryan - November 2, 2013

#24.

Read the article again. It said the producers are aiming to begin filming in (late) 2014 for either a 2015 or ’16 release date.

26. Dave H - November 2, 2013

I see three factors as to why Paramount can’t attract any heavyweights like Wyatt to direct the next Trek movie:

1. The “spoiled/misbehaving fans” factor. Everyone on the public “scifi internet” got a dose of reality this year on how negative, whiny and spiteful “some” Star Trek fans can be — a few “bad apples” overacted to their dislike of STID, and it went viral on the Internet. This would give any established director pause on whether he wanted to take on a movie known that such fans might react in an extreme negative manner to his product as well.

2. The “I don’t want to be JJ’s bitch” factor. Any director taking this job, is going to be overseen by JJ, as JJ is still running this Enterprise. This is likely perceived as limiting control and artistic license to any director coming in. If you have already “made it.” like a Wyatt, for example, you probably don’t want to be “JJ’s bitch” for this movie.

3. The “working with ‘Crazy Bob’ uncertainty” factor. Bob’s very public batter with negative fans over STID, and combined with what is now common knowledge of his “publicly perceived” extremist conspiracy and 9/11 Truther opinions, would have to give anyone who wanted to be director some pause, to make sure that this guy was someone that they could really work with (and want to work with) for 2 years

27. crazydaystrom - November 2, 2013

25-
I was referencing the Collider article.

28. Dave H - November 2, 2013

As a follow-up to my post, I would bet that Wyatt would have given a completely different response if Paramount came to to him and said, “we’ve closed Bad Robot’s deal on Trek, and we’d like to give you the lead help us produce and direct the next Trek movie, and to pick your own scriptwriter and determine the story concept.”

29. Red Dead Ryan - November 2, 2013

Dave H.,

I completely agree with all of your points. I would also add that there has been some “disputes” between Paramount, Bad Robot, and CBS in regards to merchandising. Some have also said that the relationship between the three groups has become dysfunctional. Not sure many big-name directors would want to work under those conditions where the suits can’t put aside there egos.

Add in the fact that Paramount is considering slashing the budget big time and you have a detterent for A-list directors who demand full control over their projects.

30. Red Dead Ryan - November 2, 2013

detterent=deterrent

DAMN TYPOS!!!

31. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

@26. Dave H

” The “working with ‘Crazy Bob’ uncertainty” factor.”

Crazy Bob, really ? I may disagree with his writings but I will not call him crazy. And I don’t see any reports that say big shot directors are afraid to work with him.

32. Ahmed - November 2, 2013

@ 25. Red Dead Ryan – November 2, 2013

“Read the article again. It said the producers are aiming to begin filming in (late) 2014 for either a 2015 or ’16 release date.”

It said summer 2014, not late 2014

“There’s no official deal just yet, but Deadline notes that Paramount is readying Star Trek 3 to start filming in summer 2014, which would mean a late 2015 or 2016 release is possible (the latter is more likely). ”

http://collider.com/star-trek-3-joe-cornish/#more-292539

33. snow - November 2, 2013

Star Trek back on TV, most likely…me and Orci are happy, thanks for talking CBS.

34. Dave H - November 2, 2013

@31

Ahmed, you are taking my point out of context. I said that directors might think about working with Bob given it’s “now common knowledge of his “publicly perceived” extremist conspiracy and 9/11 Truther opinions.”

I am not saying that is my perception or feelings. But read what was said by some others about Bob on public internet sites recently, and you will see that this public perception is out here. For example, from Filmdrunk.com:

“We’re living in a world where content creators have more access to their fans than ever and vice versa (a Post-Empire world, as Bret Easton Ellis would say), and we’re all still trying to figure out where the line between “too much” and “just enough” fan interaction is. Star Trek writer Roberto Orci seems to have found it recently, when, after arguing with fans on a Star Trek message board, he deleted his Twitter account. Which is a big loss, frankly, because his timeline was a constant spew of nutty 9/11 conspiracy theories and I always found it pretty entertaining.”

So again, this public perception” of Bob is out there, Ahmed. I am just commenting on it. Don’t shoot the messenger.

35. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 2, 2013

Ahmed, Dave,

I love Orci, and think he has been great for Star Trek. But I certainly do see how someone in Hollywood who doesn’t know him, might want to take baby steps with him and do their homework on him before they committed to work with him for a couple of years. I mean, Bob is pretty far out their with some wacky ideas on the world and politics, and he does have a public temper when people don’t see eye to eye with him — you would agree with that, of course, Ahmed?

36. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 2, 2013

@32. Well, the article may be off a bit. If you really started filming next summer, then why would the movie not be released until 2016 — that is two years. I think if they really started filming next summer, then a holiday 2015 release would be more likely.

37. Alf, in pog form - November 3, 2013

I won’t call him crazy either.

Besides, anyone comfortable with their own beliefs ( no matter what those beliefs may be ) should have no problem working with him…in my opinion.

…He himself does not necessarily agree on everything with everyone, and yet, still seems to be able to work with many different people… :

41. bardicjim - November 3, 2013

Joe Cornish eh? I grew up watching the Adam and Joe show on British TV and I can guarantee this guy is a complete sci fi nerd. These guys were televising the kind of stuff robot chicken were doing 10 years before robot chicken. An out and out trekkie, you may be surprised. Watch his work, then whine and bitch. Afterall, half you guys masturbate over Wrath of Kahn, yet I don’t remember that directors name being in the credits for TMP.

“So again, this public perception” of Bob is out there, Ahmed. I am just commenting on it. Don’t shoot the messenger.”

My apology. After reading Filmdrunk.com & other sites, it does looks like some people in Hollywood got this perception about Bob.

But even with that, Bob still manages to get lot of new projects.

44. Ahmed - November 3, 2013

@34. MJ

” I mean, Bob is pretty far out their with some wacky ideas on the world and politics, and he does have a public temper when people don’t see eye to eye with him — you would agree with that, of course, Ahmed?”

Or maybe they are going to shoot TWO movies back to back & release them in 2015 & 2016!! I know, this is is just a dream :)

46. I am not Herbert - November 3, 2013

EXCELLENT!!! =D =D =D

LOVE the Star Trek Space Fun Helmet! SO dorky!! =)

(btw: great job photoshopping onto nu-spock!)

LOVE the Roddenberry pics too!

thanks Kayla! =)

47. I am not Herbert - November 3, 2013

ok, the elephant in the room:

BobOrci is NOT crazy… but he IS tainted by all of this… (he’ll be ok) ;-)

Bob IS starting to see through some of the lies: 9/11 = false flag, JFK murdered by CIA / Bush Sr., secret gov’t, illuminati / cabal, etc, etc…

BUT, he is still a catholic, and therefore a slave to dogmatic views… he is still a tool of the machine… and unfit to create “Star Trek” =(

BUT, the new pope IS a good man! …and the truth will come to light!! =)

48. Scott McC - November 3, 2013

“Paramount slashing the budget big time”?

Can’t say I’ve heard about that, do you have any more info? I’d hate to see Trek go back to the biscuit barrel days of low budgets.

49. Aurore - November 3, 2013

@ 37. Addendum.

I won’t call him crazy either for, amongst other reasons, I, too, love debate and hate “groupthink “…

50. Red Dead Ryan - November 3, 2013

#47. I am not Herbert

Please stop resorting to the bait and troll tactics.

#48.

No source in particular, but there’s been rumors that Paramount is considering a significant budget cut since STID — according to the studio — hasn’t made much of a profit.

51. I am not Herbert - November 3, 2013

Joe Cornish would be great, but i seriously doubt he’d be stupid enough to take the job without a re-boot and new production… LOL!! =D

PLEASE REBOOT!!! PLEASE REBOOT!!! PLEASE REBOOT!!! I’M BEGGING!!!

52. snow - November 3, 2013

no reboot, no reboot, take trek to mirror, mirror in the cinema and our universe on tv

53. Marja - November 3, 2013

26 Dave H, I don’t really see your #1 Spoiled/Nasty ST fans as a factor. STID made millions and millions of dollars, Paramount is pretty happy, and like that. The fact that we few, we crazy few, come to these forums and hash things out and discuss and b*tch about things in the franchise [which term I hate] doesn’t mean bupkes to a director. Maybe it’s comments from the peanut gallery, maybe some of the comments are taken on board, but ultimately any movie’s success comes from the team effort in front of and behind the camera. If the director’s not a strong team leader, yikes.

But I can definitely see your #2 scenario. Most successful directors want their own vision on screen, I’m not sure many of them would want to be seen as “working for JJ” and not “in charge of his/her own project.”

54. Marja - November 3, 2013

38 DaveK, LOL thanks! I love the lyrics :-)

41 bardicjim, It’s a comfort to know this … a Treknerd would be a fun director for the film, esp. working in concert with O&K … hope he’s great in all the ways that count for a good film.

45 Oh Ahmed, I wish right along with you that this would be true! YES! YES! YES!

55. K-7 - November 4, 2013

I am not Herbert,

Enough, troll. You and your pal, Cygnus X-1, already got one threat shut down here.

Go away and take your hate and dumb-ass remarks with you please.

“reponding to newest thread

Hey Bob, can you tell us anything about that new rumor regarding Joe Cornish ?

And don’t worry about the Catholic thing, I don’t know why people brought that up in the first place.

58. boborci - November 4, 2013

56. Fan of Cornish.

59. Ahmed - November 4, 2013

@ 57. boborci – November 4, 2013

“56. Fan of Cornish.”

OK

btw whenever I read your very short replies, I’m always reminded of Kosh from Babylon 5 :)

60. Cervantes - November 5, 2013

Wow! It took less than 200 comments before it was felt that the ‘RUMOR: Joe Cornish being considered as director of Star Trek 3′ article was shut down. Is that a record around here?

Since the IDIC principle doesn’t really work when it comes to views on the internet sadly (not without things totally degenerating anyway), It’s probably a good thing that Matt is interjecting with some sensible moderation into the proceedings here, lol.

Anyway, on this whole Joe Cornish issue. I was initially a little disappointed that the early suggestions of Rupert Wyatt getting the director’s gig were unfounded. Having said that, I’ve never caught ‘Attack Of The Block’ yet to get a feel of what Cornish is capable of. But to be honest, personally it’s not so much *who* ends up directing that interests me with the next ‘Trek’ movie…it’s whether he gets to direct a great storyline with equally great dialogue throughout.

It’s the story and the script that makes a great movie at the end of the day, no matter how flashy a director can make things look. So good luck to the guy, even if he’s not a *big name* yet.

61. Jim Nightshade - November 5, 2013

Why don’t we just forget about Cornish and give the directing reins to the great Seth Green! One of the founders of robot chicken and voice of Chris Griffin in Family Guy? Plus using the dolls instead of efx and sets would mean a much less expensive movie per the cutting of the budget that Paramount wants…haha

Also Seth would ask his buddy and boss the other seth..McFarlane for advice & an avowed fan of trek as well….what ideas he could help with!

How about turning trek into a musical! Why Not! hahha

62. Jack - November 5, 2013

Just curious, Bob. Why do you keep coming back here?

63. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 5, 2013

The new director is getting so unfairly roasted by the nuTrek haters, that he is in danger of becoming a Cornish Game Hen.

;-)

64. MJ -- THE GRAND RETURN !!! - November 5, 2013

Actually, I think I just coined the nickname we can use for the new Trek director:

“Game Hen”

I like it!

65. Cervantes - November 5, 2013

@ MJ #63 –

If he’s to be ‘offered up’ to us who are somewhat critical of aspects of the NuTrek movies, then I far prefer the term ‘Cornish Patsy’ personally. :)_

( …as opposed to ‘Cornish Pasty’, of course – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasty )

66. SkiesSeven - November 5, 2013

@Jack

“Just curious, Bob. Why do you keep coming back here?”

——–

Maybe because he wants to listen to what people say over here?

While I have been critical of STiD I’m happy to see Mr. Orci still cares to listen to fans. I assume he’s already working on the script for the next film.

67. crazydaystrom - November 5, 2013

65. SkiesSeven
I’m happy to see Mr. Orci still cares to listen to fans. I assume he’s already working on the script for the next film.

As well SS. As I’ve asked before, I wonder how far along the script is.

68. I am not Herbert - November 5, 2013

BobOrci: My apologies, if I am mistaken on specifics re: religious affiliation

I regret the need to bring it up, but I DO think it is RELEVANT…

nothing personal…

69. Ahmed - November 5, 2013

@ 63. MJ — THE GRAND RETURN !!! – November 5, 2013

“The new director is getting so unfairly roasted by the nuTrek haters, that he is in danger of becoming a Cornish Game Hen.”

If we hate nuTrek so much as you keeps saying, then why we care so much about bringing in an experienced director? Wouldn’t it be more logical for the “haters” to welcome an inexperinced director to direct something they “hate” ?

btw, the “nuTrek haters” actually liked ST09, try to process that little fact, my friend.

70. Ahmed - November 5, 2013

btw, MJ, did you actually watched his movie, Attack the Block ?

71. Keachick - November 5, 2013

#68 – The issue of religious persuasion/belief is only as relevant to what Bob Orci might think, believe, as it is for the rest of us.

We come from and live in a culture which has, for nearly two thousand years, embraced the Judeo-Christian religious belief system as the cornerstone of what we consider to be moral or otherwise. Many people do not espouse or adhere to any particular religious faith, yet the moral principals that this combined religion do have influence over much of our behaviour and understanding, whether we always realize it or not.

Gene Roddenberry considered himself to be a Humanist, yet clearly certain moral codes of conduct that go back to what might be found in the Ten Commandments in the ancient books of Exodus and Deuteronomy, did influence some of his attitudes and episodes seen in TOS. This also seem to apply to the other writers of the TOS series. Gene Roddenberry also studied Buddhist doctrine as well…

Bob Orci has said that he is not Catholic and never has been, but frankly, would it matter if he was or had been, at some stage, any more than it seems that JJ Abrams is a practising Orthodox Jew, as was Leonard Nimoy? They are still people possessing rational and imaginative intelligence and that is what should count…

72. Keachick - November 5, 2013

Please – don’t say “my friend” when you are having a disagreement. It comes across as so disingenuous and makes my skin crawl.

73. crazydaystrom - November 5, 2013

Ahmed-
I’ve seen Attack the Block! a couple of times and like it more than a little bit. Just saying’. Cornish shows great potential as a director, impressive with his young cast and small budget. That and the fact that he’s a Trek fan are positives for me.

Some of my favorite directors have made films that have disappointed me and fresh up and coming directors have blown me away with early output. You know there are no guarantees with all of this but as you can tell I for one am happy to see what Cornish would do with Star Trek given the chance. Who knows? He may unite the “haters” and the “lovers”. ( and end war, hunger and poverty haha!…cure cancer, discover FTL and time travel, both, and generally usher in The Great Bird’s utopian future. Well…I think he might make a fine Trek film. LOL)

77. I am not Herbert - November 5, 2013

I have no problem with anyone’s belief’s…

(as long as they are not attempting to create an official facsimile of Star Trek)

religion is to science fiction, as oil is to water

can we let it go now?

78. boborci - November 5, 2013

68. must be relevant in a parallel universe where I was raised Catholic.

79. I am not Herbert - November 5, 2013

religion is relevant, not WHICH religion

80. Ahmed - November 5, 2013

@ 79. I am not Herbert – November 5, 2013

“religion is relevant, not WHICH religion”

Perhaps we should focus on talking about Star Trek & not religions, any religion ?

I very much don’t care about the actors/writers/director religious views, it doesn’t make any difference whatsoever.

81. boborci - November 5, 2013

79. How does the fact that I was raised existentialist factor in?

82. I am not Herbert - November 5, 2013

back to other thread… ;-)

83. Marja - November 5, 2013

69 Ahmed, SOME nu-Trek “haters” liked ST09. Others decried the name of JJ and wailed about how he had “ruined” Trek, same ol’ same ol’ we’ve seen here over and over.

76 Bob, I love that. Cryptic, but to the point … : D

82 Herbert, Dude, you don’t need to repeat the remarks you’ve made on one thread over on another thread, really you don’t. Repetition does not add validity to any point you’re trying to make. And re: your post at 77, you were the one who brought religion up in the first place, on this thread [or was it the other thread?]. So, yes, please let’s do move on.

#86 – I have written this before on another thread, for those who may already know this.

Star Trek was one of the nominees for a Golden Globe Award in Feb/March 2010 (I can’t remember for what exactly) and so was Sir Paul McCartney for his writing of song and/or musical composition for a movie. Therefore, Paul, along with some of the Star Trek cast, were there that night dining, as they were entertained and waited to see who won what award. Paul McCartney found that some of the ST cast were at the ceremony and so got up and went over to say Hi. Chris Pine, who clearly was a big Macca fanboy, found it hard to contain his surprise and delight at Paul coming over to their table. It was a most delightful few minutes of video to watch. It seems that Paul and Chris showed their delightful fanboyish tendencies. Very cool stuff!

The other aspect of Paul latest song video is that Chris Pine was among several actor/singers who are working on a film version of a Broadway stage musical, Into the Woods, who appeared on the Queenie Eye video. It is also possible that Paul is taking an interest in the making of this film… another CP/PMcC connection.
