VegasCon 08: TrekMovie Arrives + Preview Of Event

The Creation official Star Trek Convention at the Las Vegas Hilton kicks off this morning and TrekMovie.com is on the scene and ready to go. This week we will be bringing you wall to wall coverage of the event and beyond with multiple reporters on the scene. See below for some of the highlights we can expect to be reporting on. For this week, what happens in Vegas will definitely not be staying in Vegas.


TrekMovie’s New View Of The New Star Trek Poster

The big Star Trek event for Comic Con 2008 was the brand new poster (or actually 4 posters) which revealed four cast images for the first time. The poster was well received, but it was also highly stylized, saturating the Trek crew with colors from the traditional TOS uniforms (gold, red and blue). So TrekMovie decided it would be interesting to ‘reverse engineer’ the actual images from the poster as they might appear in the movie.

TrekMovie.com Comments Being Taken A Bit Too Seriously

On Sunday TrekMovie.com shared some exclusive preview pics of a Star Trek themed cake to be featured in an upcoming episode of the Food Network show “Ace of Cakes.” The article spawned many comments here and some sites and blogs picked up the story (as per usual). But then some other sites decided to focus on the comments and took one in particular way too seriously.

Fake Trek Contest Entries + Winner

The TrekMovie.com and io9 ‘Make a Fake’ Contest is now over. We have received a number of entries, some of which were attempts at fooling Vreenak, and others were just a bit of fun foolishness. Although fakes, it is likely some of the entries could have spurred some internet rumors if they weren’t labeled as such. See below for all of the entries and the winner.

New Podcasts from Kelvington and Dochterman

A couple friends and contributors of TrekMovie.com have put up new podcasts and I say check them out. First up is Daren Dochterman who has a commentary for his Doomsday Machine Efffects video. Podcast at TrekEnhanced.com Next up is Rick Kelvington who has launched a new podcast show along with Jessica Menn called ‘Talking Entertainment.’ More info at Kelvington.com …and yes eventually TrekMovie.com will have its own podcast 


Trek XI Design Sketch Debunked

Earlier today TrekMovie.com posted a supposed ‘leaked design sketch’ of a reimagined Enterprise for Star Trek XI. Word of this sketch spread around the Internet like wild fire. It is being discussed on StarTrek.com, TrekWeb,  TrekBBS, SomethingAwful, WordForge, Bethesda, and even in the TreksInSciFi podcast. After thorough research TrekMovie.com has learned that this sketch is indeed an Apirl Fool’s Day joke. The scheme was hatched by TrekMovie.com owner Anthony Pascale who was unavailable for comment but was seen walking the streets of Los Angeles giggling maniacally. We have also learned his accomplice was artist Jason Lee (who also goes by the name ‘Vektor’) who actually created the so-called leaked sketch. When questioned Mr. Lee would only say "we just thought it would be kind of funny." Funny indeed.


TrekMovie At Wondercon

If you live in the Bay Area make sure to drop by Wondercon on Friday at 5:30 to see the panel  Trek Lives! The Rise, Fall and Rise of Star Trek.  The panel is set up by Geek Monthly Magazine and will feature other Treksperts ‘discussing the past, present and future of sf’s first franchise.’ I will be joined by Jeff Bond and Daren Dochterman as well as Robert Meyer Burnett (director of Free Enterprise). Daren will be showing some of his rare audio and video stuff from Trek history. I will pontificate on TOS-R, STXI and the future of Trek! I will also be hanging around the Geek Monthly booth. For more info see the Official Wondercon Site


CBS Digital Guys Use TrekMovie.com To Play Prank On Boss

We all know that "Doomsday" was the big one for CBS-Digital, and that Special Effects Supervisor Niel Wray went a bit grey getting it finished. Well the effects team thought they would play a little prank on Niel and try and convince him that eagle eyed TrekMovie.com readers spotted an error in the final product (in the trailer). To that end they recreated a fake version of TrekMovie.com with a faked trailer and some rewritten comments…
