The following essay comes to us from Lukas Kendall at Film Score Monthly (www.filmscoremonthly.com), whose Star Trek credentials including producing or co-producing most of the recent collector’s edition soundtrack CDs like the 15-disc La-La Land Records TOS box set. He also assisted with the recent publication of Return to Tomorrow, the oral history of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Lukas says he’s a lifelong Trekker who follows the ongoing dialogue about the franchise, and thought he had something to add about its fundamental appeal—and, among other things, the reason why J.J. Trek is so polarizing.

Love them or not, one can’t deny that Creation Entertainment has built an enduring calendar of annual events. If you’ve never been to a convention put on by Creation, they are indeed a bit different than most pop-culture conventions. The first thing to strike a visitor is that these events are fairly low-key affairs. That’s not to say that they’re not very well attended; there’s a healthy crowd, but it’s not shoulder-to-shoulder, and definitely once you’re past picking up your registration badge, not the typical bumper-car experience. They tightly control the daily number of attendees to make sure that every person at the event can make it into the main session rooms to enjoy the experience.
Just in time for the holidays, IDW’s Star Trek: New Visions photonovel series returns with fan favorite Harry Mudd like you’ve never seen him before.

Earlier this week , the fabulous genre website, io9.com, ran an article I wrote regarding how Paramount is missing out on a unique opportunity to develop Star Trek as a blockbuster multi-media property. After reading the article, your jocular webmaster Anthony Pascale, reached out to me and discussed expanding my article (or, as Charles Foster Kane might say, Declaration of Principals) for the Trek Movie audience with some additional and more Trek-specific thoughts to help facilitate a continued debate on the future of the Star Trek universe. As such, I hope you’ll find the revised, expanded, director’s cut version of my article (ne: manifesto) thought-provoking and worthy of further discussion as what I’m sure will be the first of many opinion pieces on how the studio should be treating the franchise as we approach its 50th anniversary in 2016. Now onwards, first star to the right and straight on till morning…Conventions/Events/Attractions,Fandom , comments closed
