Book Review: Star Trek: Cast No Shadow July 29, 2011by Robert Lyons , Filed under: Books,Feature Films (TMP-NEM),Review , comments closed
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country left a lot of open-ended questions. While there have been a few visits back to that "Lost Era" over the years, none have addressed the medium-term repercussions of the Khitomer Accords and the devastation wrought by the Praxis detonation. That all changes James Sawllow’s brand new novel "Star Trek: Cast No Shadow." The TrekMovie review is below.Feature Films (TMP-NEM),Replicas , comments closed

29 Years Ago Today…Khaaaaaaan!! June 4, 2011by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Editorial,Feature Films (TMP-NEM) , comments closed
On June 4th, 1982 Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was released, and Star Trek changed forever. In the intervening 29 years nine more Star Trek feature films have been released, yet this relatively low budget entry is still considered the best of the franchise. Today TrekMovie celebrates Khan.Feature Films (TMP-NEM) , comments closed
