Actor Chris Hemsworth is excited about starring in the new movie Star Trek 4. The Avengers superhero "Thor" and Captain James T Kirks father "George Kirk" made his debut while aboard the (USS Kelvin) in Star Trek 2009. -


Apparently Chris is rumoured to return for the next blockbuster Star Trek sequel. Word is Producer J.J. Abrams has pitched two versions of Captain Kirk to intersect along the space time continuum for Paramount Pictures/fan approval in Star Trek Beyond's sequel.

At this stage speculation is wild over at Cinemablend over how our master of cliffhangers J. J. Abrams will exhilarate fans when Star Trek 4 hits theaters. MTV caught up with Chris Hemsworth on the Red Carpet of the Golden Globes. Chris has confirmed that Star Trek 4 is going to happen.

Hemsworth: "he’s got an amazing sort of pitch on the whole thing"
In further developments at Slashfilm J.J. Abrams has confirmed

Abrams: “the reason we made a deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could” was because they have concocted a really “amazing story.” 

The good news is Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Chris Hemsworth has signed up so its a done deal!



Could George Kirk have survived in Star Trek 2009 and emerged through the other side of a black hole in some time travel twist?

Live long and Prosper.

Happy New Year Everyone! On 21st May 1987 Gene Roddenberry's brand new TNG crew was splashed all over the Phoenix Newspaper. At first reactions were mixed. Set 100 years in the future (2364) not everyone was convinced TNG would succeed with a bald guy in charge instead of Captain Kirk commanding the Enterprise and her crew. Of course trek wouldn't have scored big and prospered without all these beautiful females to serve and defend king and starship.
Troi's cheerleading outfit was a classic, so heres some TNG women armed to the teeth although it does beg the question doesn't it? Why was Tasha Yar the only one allowed to carry a phaser?

At the time Star Trek the Voyage Home hit cinema screens trekkies were all hooked on the classic crew. So when agents for William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy rubbed studio executives noses in the dirt for more cash, treks leading stars signed a 2.5 million deal each and the fourth ''Star Trek'' movie was produced in 1986.

This year Star Trek The Next Generation celebrates its 30th anniversary. When TNG premiered in September 28th 1987 my eyeballs melted onto the TV screen along 27 million other fans. Thirty years on TNG is still on the air thanks to the organizational wizardry of visual effects maestro Ronald B Moore and his unique special effects. He developed systems to help organize massive projects, contractors and other elements needed to produce TNG's weekly special effects.


 In todays technological computer age HD and CGI allow moves which were impossible with model ship and motion control. However ST TNG set the new standard. Yes it took years for computer generated ships to be used more and more. but TNG was there from the beginning. I couldn't find the images used when filming the Enterprise-D going to warp so heres the link instead.

Captain Picard's galaxy class starship (USS Enterprise NCC 1701) launched on stardate 40759.5 from the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards on time. The Federation's flagship was a beauty, bigger, better, faster and loaded with extravagant technological capability - not to mention firepower and word spread. Yet TOS had a number of episodes written by major SF authors delivering cracking punchlines, wit and great stories for characters like Kirk, Spock McCoy and Uhura.

The greatest thing for me is Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek embraces a future of unlimited possibilities using twentieth century science to "make it so" in the 24th century. So now we've got starships, warp drive, dilithium crystals, transporter beams, phasers, replicators, Romulan cloaking devices, warbirds, tricorders. References to the Persian Gulf, Central America, Aids, and Captain Picard's TNG crew hopping from planet to planet was the New Star Trek in 1987. How times have changed yet again with the arrival of nutrek and Star Trek Discovery.


 Isn't the 24th century cool?
Which show are you a fan of TNG, TOS, DS9, VOY or ENT?
Heres the low down on why Wil Wheaton quit Star Trek. Did he choose wisely?
Paramount Pictures sold a 78 inch model USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D at Christies auction for a princely sum.  Was it....

1. $750,000
2. $550,000
3. $350,000

Live Long and Prosper!

Carrie Fisher, Rick Parfitt and George Michael passed away this Christmas - 2016

Our beloved Princess Leia played by Carrie Fisher died very unexpectedly at the age of 60 today. On a flight traveling from London to Los Angeles Carrie suffered a massive heart attack on Friday. Passengers and flight crew administered CPR and she was immediately taken to hospital for treatment.

Her family announced in a statement: “It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning"

Speaking out Friends and Disney pay tribute.

It is also with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to rock musicians Rick Parfitt (Status Quo) with George Michael (Wham!) departing our world this Christmas.

RIP Carrie, Rick and George.
