I’ll be in Vegas this year!!! Hope to see you there.

Chris, any chance you’ll make it out to Supermegafest in November in Framingham, Mass?

@Chris Can’t wait! You should definitely come to the Landing Party, which will be the night before the con starts at Masquerade. Just Trekkies, drinks, and some trivia games!

Going to “Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage” in March. Woot!

I think you’re looking at this wrong, folks. Why should Paramount waste money on promoting Beyond now? No one cares about anything except Star Wars right now. It would be money wasted. Once the mania has settled a bit, I expect to see Star Trek promotions start to ramp up.

“Why should Paramount waste money on promoting Beyond now? ” — Karidian

Perhaps you should ask THEM that, or did you think that trailer just magically appeared on screen before STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS through the good graces of the Trek fairy?

ShuttlePad should be sued by Paramount and CBS for even mentioning the word “Star Trek”.

So is it possible that Rey was born from the force like that wag Aniken skywalker. And the force hopes to get it right with a woman this time round. :)

I’m already stoked about “Star Trek Beyond,” which may be a prefect way to celebrate 50 years of “boldly going where no one has gone before.” Live long and prosper, my friends.

1, Chris i ve got your fathers Red Tunic from TOS. Always proud to wear it and you nail the performance of Scotty every time! I Miss the Great James and his charm… I may not come but you re Great Star Trek, just like your Dad. Thank you!
