Introducing Shuttle Pod – The TrekMovie Podcast: V’Ger v. Nomad September 11, 2015by TrekMovie.com Staff , Filed under: Feature Films (TMP-NEM),TOS,TrekMovie.com , comments closed
A few months ago, TrekMovie writer Jared Whitley made a casual comment that the TOS episode “The Changeling” was better than Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Fellow TM writer Brian Drew picked up the gauntlet Jared threw down, and the two decided to debate the respective merits of the two tales, which are similar in plot if not in tone, theme, or scope.
To carry out the debate, we have inaugurated Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie Podcast. Let us know in the comment section what you think about the debate and the idea of TM podcast in general.

Syfy’s Face Off tackles Star Trek September 1, 2015by Bill Watters , Filed under: This Week In Trek,Trek Franchise,Trek on TV,Uncategorized , comments closed
We’re into the ninth season of Syfy’s Face Off, which continues to be the network’s highest rated unscripted series. This week’s make-up theme is Star Trek, so I was eager to see where they took the challenge. The episode is in the series typical two challenge format, however this time the way they tie it back to Star Trek is that in the first round the contestants have to create an alien design based on a different background assigned to each person, and in the second they’re tasked to update it for a Next Generation era feel.Star Trek Beyond , comments closed

Star Trek fans looking for an experience uniquely geared for them need look no further than what’s beaming in to Ticonderoga, New York, from September 4th – 6th.

In addition to the more traditional celebrity aspect of a convention, they will also be hosting tours of actual sets, conducting make-up workshops, and special episode screenings with creators adding commentary along the way.Star Trek Beyond , comments closed

Editorial: With Lydia Wilson as latest addition to Star Trek Beyond cast, can we expect a strong female role or another Carol Marcus? August 19, 2015by Kayla Iacovino , Filed under: Celebrity,Editorial,Star Trek Beyond , comments closed
Lydia Wilson has just been announced as the latest addition to the growing call sheet for Star Trek Beyond, currently filming in Vancouver. As usual, no one has any clue as to what her role might be (although there is plenty of speculation abound). I am excited about the addition of another female presence on the screen, but I remain cautiously optimistic after our “strong female role model” Carol Marcus turned into a one-trick pony designed to catch Kirk’s (and the audience’s) romantic interest.
Zachary Quinto, currently filming his role as Spock in Star Trek Beyond recently spoke about how filming the third incarnation of the rebooted franchise has been different without JJ Abrams, currently busy filming Star Wars, directing them on set.
One of the highlights of the Convention was the costume contest held on Saturday, August 8. Every year convention goers share their creativity and enthusiasm with their costume creations. This year Creation invited participants to compete in three categories: ensign (beginner), lieutenant (intermediate), and captain (expert). Contestants had to submit photos of their costumes ahead of time as well as participate in pre-judging. There were six judges that came from a variety of backgrounds such as actors from Star Trek, costuming professionals, and science fields.
In what is proving to be a very sad year for Trek fans, yet another star has passed: Yvonne Craig, who guest starred in the episode Whom Gods Destroy as the green Orion slave girl Marta. While we love her for the spunk and energy she brought to the episode, Craig much more widely known for her role as Batgirl in the Adam West Batman TV series.
