Mojo’s Effects Blog
Our friend Mojo (former Trek graphic designer Adam Lebowitz) has some more Trek eye candy to share, this time some cool high res images that he made for the former Star Trek: The Magazine. For big versions of the pics and the back story check out the Darth Mojo Blog.
Who v Trek fans – by the numbers
io9 recently did a reader survey of Star Trek fans and Doctor Who fans to see if they have any differences in their occupations and aspirations. What they found was that the fandoms were nearly identical, except that the Trek fans were older. Check up the detailed post with lots of charts and graphs.
Pictures of the week: Red shirts and short skirts
Two Australian college students named ‘Chiaki’ and ‘Ona’, or known collectively as ‘Chonastock’ on Deviantart.com, have done a new series of photos called “Starfleet Redshirts Redux” which tells a story of a landing party you really want to be on. Check out the gallery of dozens of shots.
Video of the week: Kill Bab5
One of the better made video mashups was uploaded to YouTube this week by ‘conmanguyler.’ It takes battle scenes from the Star Trek vs. Babylon 5 parody “Star Wreck” and puts it to “Battle Without Honor or Humanity” by Tomoyasu Hotei (made famous in the film Kill Bill).
