Is Jonathan Frakes The Man To Make Star Trek 3 So? #BringInRiker Campaign Hopes So

In the wake of the news that Roberto Orci would not, as had previously been announced, be directing the 13th Star Trek movie, rumors are flying across the Internets about why he left and who might replace him.

PixelTrek: Explore the Enterprise D in Pixelated Form

A Star Trek fan, known only as “Daniel,” has created a web-based game where players can explore the Enterprise-D in pixelated, isometric form. Featuring common areas, such as the bridge, ready room, andcaptain quarters, the game also contains little-seen rooms like restrooms, science labs, and staircases. Players have the ability to move freely throughout the ship, and they can even save their progress and pick it up later. Visit Pixeltrek.com to start playing.



Reading Rainbow Kickstarter funding with Trek alumni

As we reported a couple of weeks ago LeVar Burton had started a Kickstarter fund to bring back beloved children’s show Reading Rainbow. It made their first goal of funding within a day, but the need for funding isn’t over, in an update this week Burton announced that he has enlisted Trek alumni to help him read stories, there will be exclusive Reading Rainbow Live! events for Kickstarter  pledges. Reading Rainbow Live! is a series of one-time-only events where I’m inviting you to bring your child and join us for a few hours. My friends and I will read from a few children’s books. We’ll all watch a classic episode of Reading Rainbow together, and everyone will go home with some special goodies. And afterward, there will also be a smaller Meet & Greet reception where a small number of families can join us to take photos, sign autographs and talk! The first performance will feature the “Men of Star Trek,” which include: Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, and Robert Picardo. The second performance is themed as the “Women of Star Trek,” with Marina Sirtis and Gates McFadden, Jeri Ryan and Kate Mulgrew appearing. There are also two special solo performances planned, one with William Shatner and one with Patrick Stewart. All of the live readings will be Los Angeles, except for Patrick Stewart’s, which will be held in New York City. Read on for the full details.
