Conflict over fan productions is creating such a legal argle-bargle that to sort it out would require either an obsessive crackpot who’s escaped from his keeper or Samuel T. Cogley, attorney at law.

Will Riker may not have been a Canadian, but it looks like everyone involved with the new Star Trek show could be. Pop culture news site Pop Goes The News reported this week that the as yet unnamed series, which we’re calling Star Trek All Access, will start filming in Toronto in September.
Star Trek Beyond will not be the conclusion of a trilogy! Or perhaps, managing expectations, Star Trek Beyond – the third installment of the NuTrek franchise following JJ Abrams’ 2009 reboot – will not be the planned conclusion of a trilogy.
They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but this year what happens there will last to the 23rd Century and beyond.

Top of the mornin’ to all of ye who will be wearing green this March 17th! As you know, we here at TrekMovie like to mark holidays throughout the year with a collection of recommended episodes to help you celebrate. And this year St. Patrick’s Day is no different! So curl up with these classics and your favorite green beverage.
As unusual as it is for the Internet, Trek fans seem to be reacting very positively to the news that former DS9 and Voyager writer Bryan Fuller will be the showrunner for the new series (which we’re just calling Star Trek: All Access for the time being). Bryan has 22 writing credits for Trek, which will probably get rewatched more in the next six months than they might otherwise. To help hone in which ones to rewatch (or at least which ones to start with!) we present our Top 5 Bryan Fuller episodes.
Bryan Fuller, veteran Star Trek writer (DS9 and VOY), has been tapped as co-creator and showrunner for CBS’s upcoming Star Trek television* series, set to debut in January 2017.
As far as pointless holidays go, Groundhog Day is somewhere above modern day Arbor Day but somewhere below First Contact Day in the 24th Century. (Remember Captain Janeway said the only way she remembered the holiday was getting the day off from school.) So in our grand tradition of holiday-centric articles, we present you the first ever list of top Star Trek episodes to watch tomorrow on Groundhog Day.
If you’d like to attend a convention this year that’s timed just about perfectly for the 50th anniversary, you may want to beam to New York City.
With so little information to be had about Star Trek Beyond, any tidbit of information is to be jumped on like a tribble at a baby shower. AND SPEAKING of which, today’s released information is about one special space baby in particular…
Trailer reaction videos are all the rage on the YouTube these days, and we here at Trek Movie wanted to get in on the gravy. So we have prepared a reaction video to today’s Star Trek Beyond trailer. But what is your reaction _to our reaction video_?!? Let us know in the comments below!
Patrick Stewart stars in Christmas Eve, a new independent light-hearted Christmas comedy story of six groups of New Yorkers who become trapped in elevators over Christmas Eve night.
As you’re celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, we wanted to share a few Thanksgiving-appropriate episodes of Trek to enjoy with loved ones while you’re digesting turkey, pie, and plomeek soup. And, as a special holiday treat from CBS, you can stream all of Star Trek ad-free with one free month of CBS All Access.
In the TNG episode “The Neutral Zone”, Data comments that television as an entertainment form went extinct in 2040. If it doesn’t go extinct, it’s certainly evolving and the good people at CBS are hoping they can win in this survival of the fittest.
With a tweet heard round the Alpha Quadrant, Simon Pegg today announced that principal photography for Star Trek Beyond had wrapped. He and co-writer Doug Jung are seen staring off into the Final Frontier. That’s a wrap on Star Trek Beyond! Writers, Doug Jung and Simon Pegg consider life after Trek. 🖖🏼 pic.twitter.com/ZH5flEmfEf — Pegg News (@simonpegg) October 15, 2015 But what are they saying? What are they thinking? Is it “Second star to the right, and straight on till morning”? Or is it “Let’s see what’s out there”? Or perhaps they’re staring at a fan cosplaying as the Goddess of Empathy. What do you think? Put your idea for the perfect caption for this photo in the comments below, and return back here every week for more news related to Star Trek Beyond, the 50th anniversary next year, and much more Trek-citement. Star Trek Beyond will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.
Idris Elba, who has been cast as the villain of Star Trek Beyond, gave an interview with MTV recently where he described his character as, among other things, “groundbreaking” for the Star Trek franchise.
New photos and video from Star Trek Beyond have (finally!) made their way to the Internet.
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.
To uproarious applause, the entire cast of Voyager took the stage of the Las Vegas Rio on Saturday to talk to fans, tell jokes, and reminisce on the show’s 20th anniversary.
As we at Trek Movie are preparing to deploy to Las Vegas for the largest annual Star Trek convention in the world, I am forced to pause and ask… do we really need conventions just for ourselves any more? Just because we always did it, just because we started fandom and cosplay, do we need to keep doing it?
With less than a year until Star Trek Beyond beams, warps, or is hurtled by a powerful alien known as the Caretaker into theaters near you, news of the production is beginning to trickle in. The most recent news item is that actor/martial artist Joe Taslim is joining the cast. The actor was relatively unknown outside of his native Indonesia until he jump-kicked his way on to screens with 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, directed by Justin Lin, who is also helming Star Trek Beyond. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story over the weekend.
Paramount is doubling down on the rebooted Trek movie franchise – spurring lazy entertainment reporters around the world to reuse clichés about “boldly going.” The reboot actors – Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, etc. – originally signed contracts committing them to just three pictures, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment are in the process of signing them on for a fourth installment.
Michael Dorn wants to put Worf in the center seat, and he’s asking fans for their help.
Further proof that the current generation of fandom con-going takes its lead from decades’ worth of Star Trek conventions, William Shatner and George Takei headlined the annual Washington, DC, Awesome Con this weekend.
Regardless of how much you and I want to see Star Trek return to the TV, we aren’t the ones who control the latinum.
Marking the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day is a holiday in the United States for honoring those who died serving in the Armed Forces. We don’t know if Starfleet has any such celebration, but it probably needs one – Memory Alpha exhaustively details the many, many Starfleet crew who died in the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th Centuries. But until we have an official Starfleet Memorial Day, we’d like to recommend the following five episodes to watch this weekend to honor the fallen Redshirts among us.
Our friends at Mission Log are doing a wonderful job chronicling the development of the Star Trek philosophy, providing a detailed of each episode sequentially week after week. This week, however, they’ve added a “supplemental” with an exclusive almost two-hour interview with Wil Wheaton. The candid discussion focuses more on the young actor’s experience on the show in the 80s rather than some of the Wesley-bashing that came afterward, nerd-friendly ruminations about levelling up as a human, and Wheaton’s reactions to watching episodes nowadays.
Once a franchise has been around as long as Star Trek – and seen so many highlights – the opportunity for milestones multiply like Tribbles on their honeymoon. 2012 was the 25th anniversary of TNG. 2013 was the 20th anniversary of DS9. This year is the 20th anniversary of VOY. Next year is the 50th anniversary of TOS. BUT TODAY is actually a milestone of a low-light: the 10th anniversary since a new episode of Star Trek aired on TV.
The Internet has long been a hotbed (or depending on your perspective a cesspool) of nostalgia. Indeed, Star Trek nostalgia fueled much of the development of the Internet with blogs, wikis, and so forth dedicated to our beloved franchise. And for those of you gearing up for the 50th anniversary, what better way than to resurrect some gems from the 25th anniversary?
