To Boldly Discover Star Trek

Are Fans Rejecting Star Trek Discovery?

So with Netflix footing the bill for the entire season 1 of Star Trek Discovery. The question remains. Is the new show a financial success?

As predicted by the licensees the ship and costume designs and overall deviation from Star Trek Canon has caused a backlash in the fan community.

Discovery toys aren't readily available in stores except online...hmmm its a different story. Amazon is a good place to search. You can find a Sonequa Martin-Green STAR TREK DISCOVERY Autographed photo for $65... so if you've got the bucks to blow.. shes waiting for you!

But lets get serious for a second, the new changes have caused an unmistakable rupture in the space time continuum between borderline fans who dislike ST Discovery and fans who love it.

So which side are you on? Do you love the new Star Trek Discovery Costumes? or prefer the older kelvin timeline....... Kirk, Picard, Janeway, Seven of Nine perhaps or maybe McFarlane Fox toys? hehe CBS must be loving this. What about the JJ abramsverse Star Trek movies?

In some sense Star Trek Discovery was to Star Trek Fans what Star Wars the last Jedi would become later to Star Wars fans. Which timeline are you casting your vote in favor of?  Hey maybe you loved Star Trek Into darkness..............

Live Long and prosper.

Captain Kirk's Memorrable Kisses

Captain James T Kirk has enjoyed romantic entanglements with the galaxies most beautiful women. Some were flirtatious, and others were dangerous birds but none could match the deadly speed and true love of the Starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701. I find it fascinating to take stock of historys glories, join me on our quest down memory lane... where are they today?

Edith Keeler played by Joan Collins. Kirk and Edith kissed when he saved her from falling down a stairs and breaking her neck. History had to be restored to prevent the Nazi's winning WW2. Edith Keeler had to die. In reality Joan is 85 still kicking and starring in American Horror Story. 2018

Lieutenant Uhura played by Nichelle Nichols. Captured by Platonians and forced to entertain, Kirk and Uhura's kiss was watched by millions for being
the first of real world significance. Today Nichelle is 85 is involved in many productions from White Orchid 2018, American Nightmares 2018, Unbelievable, Noahs Room, Drones, Clones and Pheromones. Wowsers!

Lenore Karidian played by Barbara Anderson. Kirk romanced Lenore hoping to find out the truth about the suspected criminal Kodos. It turns out Lenore is killing her lovers who suspect too much making their "kiss" near fatal. Today at 72 her photos don't do her justice. Despite the faded golden hair her mind is sharp and she has a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Marlena Moreau played by Barbara Luna starred in Mirror with the Evil Captain Kirk. She was seductive and wanted to share power but threatened to leave. Kirk changed her mind with a kiss melting her resolve. Today Barbara, Luna to her friends is 79, looks a million and lives in NY. Her most recent work in 2016 was the Sandra West Diaries.

Yeoman Rand played by Grace Lee Whitney was foxy sultry hottie in her day. A fan favorite who sadly died in 2015. There was a moment on the starship Enterprise when a savage duplicate Kirk forced himself on Rand. All down to a transporter accident. Whitney lived to age 85 after appearing in 8 classic episodes and several Star Trek movies. She featured in Star Trek Voyager and was loved at conventions.

Areel Shaw was played by Joan Marshal died at age 61. She married 5 times and was Barbara Striesland's secretary. In Star Treks Court Martial she was the only woman to wear a full uniform dress for the duration of the episode. Turns out as prosecuting officer she couldn't resist trying the defendant with a kiss before gunslinging him.

Shahna played by Angelique Pettyjohn died from cervical cancer in 1992. She was 48 and a stunner. She starred in Star Treks Gamsters of Triskelion as green haired thrall whom kirk kissed, said goodbye leaving her to watch the lights in the sky.

Andrea played by Sherry Jackson (76) was a real stunning android.  Seizing the moment and the android, Kirk plants a sloppy wet kiss right onto her sweet pretty smacker. Poor Andrea, I bet her that move overloaded her logical android programming. I couldn't help but laugh when she says "No, not programmed for you." Jacksons last gig was Strike force in 1982. Since age 11 the camera loved her but acting roles faded in the 80's.

James T. Kirk had many conquests and one had the most amazing smile. Dr Helen Noel (Dagger of the Mind) played by Marianna Hill. Its too bad they didn't make her a regular cast member because she was smoking hot and perfect.

She is known for High Plains Drifter, The Godfather PII, Star Trek TOS and the Outer Limits. M Hills last movie was a comedy titled Chief Zabu 2016.

Hope you enjoyed our trek down the stars, live long and prosper.

Which Sci-Fi Spacebabe is your favorite?

Worf and Jadzia

Terry Farrell is big at Star Trek conventions. Here she is giving a Q&A for the fans at Supercon 2018. She first appeared as Jadzia Dax in a DS9 episode "Dax" accused of murder. Fans know by now "Jadzia" character is two different species. So heres the thing, see....


Theres this large worm lurking within beautiful Jadzia the host. So what is it? Well trekkers, to be blunt Jadzia's 300 year old beastie has a name.....Its called Dax, lol. So lets see now... The Dax symbiont brain entity had previous deep ties with Klingon culture, so when Klingon Worf came along (remember him?) a Klingon wedding on Deep Space 9 kinda happened. Jadzia and Worf were married.

 So who got the better deal? You decide! but we're talking about Jadzia the spacebabe with several doctorates and degrees in exobiology, zoology, astrophysics, and Xenoarchaeology - duh what?) You don't have to understand the how it all happened exactly...... just let Jadzia - do all the talking and Worf can consider himself one lucky Klingon.

He must have been trilled, Jadzia was, wouldn't you agree?  tell me what you think.

Guess who said “Need a flashback guy?????” adding “Just saying … I’ve got previous experience and will work for autographs.”

Younger versions of Captain Jean Luc Picard have been portrayed by three other actors or maybe four...
1. David Tristan Birkin played Picard at age 12 (“Rascals,” plus he played Picard’s nephew RenĂ© in “Family”),
2. Marcus Nash portrayed Ensign Jean-Luc Picard (“Tapestry”), and
3. Tom Hardy played a young Picard clone and was shown as a photo of Picard from the Academy (Star Trek: Nemesis).
Of course, Patrick Stewart just played his younger self in ST TNG “Tapestry,” through the magic of Q.
4. James McAvoy played Professor X in the ninth installment of the Xmen movie series (2016) He shaved his head to look like SirPatStew

so do we .... "Need a flashback guy??????"  1, 2, 3 or 4?

Patrick Stewart Shares First Star Trek Captain's Photo

Jean Luc Picard will engage Star Trek firefights and conflicts with an energizing buzz. We need a character like Patrick Stewart to do this for I believe after 178 episodes of Star Trek TNG, only the Picard can "make it so" for fans! Look at the original ST TNG episodes. Characters wait to hear what he's going to do/say next when crises hits.

 I personally can't wait, You know the Picard's orders "make it so" is going to be so right! I mean he's the only captain who drank green whiskey with Scotty (Jimmy Doohan) on the bridge of the classic USS Enterprise NCC 1701. Okay so it was a holodeck, no bl**dy A,B,C or D but as ideas go don't you feel wowsered?

‘Star Trek’s William Shatner and Sonequa Martin-Green accept Governors Award. Present were all Six Star Trek Series actors to receive the Emmy.

Bill Nye introduced Alex Kurtzman (EP, Discovery), Levar Burton (The Next Generation), Linda Park (Enterprise), Jeri Ryan (Voyager), Walter Koenig (the original Star Trek), and Terry Farrell (Deep Space Nine) while the new and old guard were there to accept the trophy: Discovery‘s Sonequa Martin-Green and the original scallywag himself Captain Kirk, William Shatner was there to set Nichelle Nichols (TOS UHURA) heart on fire.

Heres what they said.

William Shatner: "after 52 years everyone who has been involved in Star Trek is grateful. The original Captain says that Star Trek is a phenomenon and “represents an idea that is greater than all its parts.”

“I accept this award for all of the artists who have worked to make this show a success,” he said.

Walter Koenig “It resonates because we were talking about topical issues and socio-political content,” 

LeVar Burton chimes in, “It’s all about good storytelling.”

“We still worry about living together and having a fruitful and joyful experience,” added Koening. We are beset with problems that we had in the ’60s.”

As the newest member of the fleet, Martin-Green pointed out that she hopes Discovery gives justice to the franchise and furthers it. “It was very important to us anew, but be our own at the same time,”

Alex Kurtzman "Star Trek “has been a beacon of hope for so many people for so long.”

“In dark times, we need that hope,” he said.

Captain Kirks Star Trek Toys


Here's a list of romantic entanglements, historic, fatalistic, diplomatic, warp speed spacebabes. At least one kiss got recognized for real world significance and the other was with an android but who were they? but HEY, what do you say? Kirk got to play around with all of them! How IMPRESSIVE is that?.

Captain Kirk's got the coolest space toys and he gets to talk to the USS Enterprise 1701 with yeah, you know the one! The flip up communicator. "Kirk here! Two to beam up Scotty! (Ok, so he never said Scotty but let's pretend he did.) Being the third Captain of the legendary Enterprise requires bending rules for the greater good.

 Wheres the fun otherwise? Saving Earth from hostile entities like V'Ger and madman Nero remember them? Nero was nuts. It sure puts the captain in the thick of action whose Kirk attitude and swagger is famously linked with science fictions leading existential heros. What a role model for us poor mortals! Never one far from danger, Kirk's dedication never stops him having fun in his downtime.

 Always it took beautiful women across the quadrant to propel the captain from danger to flirtation or was it love?. Because some say Captain James T. Kirk's one true spacebabe was the Starship Enterprise. What do you think?

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers and trekkies!

In Star Trek the Original Series, Kirk's first kiss with the "actress" (Barbara Anderson) was stalled when they discovered Dr Thomas Leighton, meanwhile the Enterprise transports the acting company to their next destination.

The "company" or troupe of actors included Lenores father, the suspected criminal Kodos the Executioner. So the game was afoot you might say. In any case Kirk was busy romancing Lenore, no less, hoping to pick up some clues and discover who Kodos really was.

 We know at this time its Lenores father but the guy really has a murky past. Sadly she's been covering for her mans ol' sins and has been killing off anyone who get too close to the truth, making the "KISS" almost fatal, a real sweetheart!

Whats the name of this classic trek episode?

Remember the Zibalian trader Kivas Fajo? Well here he is holding the dreaded Varon -T Disruptor. Some say it takes only seven seconds to disintegrate a real human being, how scary is that?Fortunately, no-ones ever experienced the horror of having a T- Disruptor pointed at them.... until now.

The proud owner, Kivas appeared on the face of it, a rather benign friendly chap until you got to know him which begged the real question.

How low was this guy prepared to sink? You see EVERYDAY HERO'S struggle far and wide here on Earth, we work hard and give back to society. Kivas Fajo was different. A real piece of art, much like his illegal museum collection. But heres the thing, Fajo was a thief and murderer as Commander Data (USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D) was about to discover..

But lets look at the facts, Fajo's lovely assistant Varria had a heart of gold. The poor girl tries to free Data from captivity aboard the prison spaceship, Jovis. The trigger was when the android sits obediently in his chair as part of Fajo collection but refuses to speak to Fajo's guests, enraging him. Only this is where the tale takes a sordid twist.

Fajo catches loyal Varria in the ultimate act of betrayal setting Data free. Outraged Fajo is now holding the Varon T Disruptor which he carries everywhere and sleeps with under his pillow, imagine! Cold hearted, Fajo always wanted to try it out. So now, Varria is begging for her poor life.


Poor Varria, it was the most horrible seven, painful, seconds of her life as Fajo's energy pulse rips through her body and leaves nothing behind. She dies screaming, agonizingly destroyed by the blast as the Varon T Disruptor initiates a cascade molecular disruption effect and consumes her body from the inside out. Even Fajo is horrified so he drops the weapon.

"You made me do it, its your fault" he says to Data

Only five guns were ever produced and never posed any kind of real Galactic threat. Kivas Fajo is apprehended and his possessions confiscated by the authorities but what of justice for Varria? was his capture punishment enough for Varria's ghastly death?

Should Kivas Fajo have got further punishment for using this extremely inhumane weapon on Varria?

Let us know in the comments below.

Do you believe in capital punishment for murderers?
Do you believe in an eye for an eye?
Should thieves be publicly exposed for stealing?
Should thieves be deprived of their human rights for stealing?

Supposing Kivas Fajo donated his art collection to charity before getting captured by Data. Would that singular act of charity make KIVAS FAJO a hero? or should he be sentenced to 25 years hard labor at a penal colony?
Do you believe there can be no forgiveness for Varria's murder?

New Spock for Star Trek Discovery

Star Trek Discovery welcomes aboard the grandson of Gregory Peck to play Mr Spock. Sounds great doesn't it? So now CBS is casting Spock for its second season of Star Trek Discovery, honoring the iconic role with the half human, half vulcan pointy eared science officer of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701.

Ethan Peck is known for playing: In Time, The Sorcerers Apprentice and Nothing Left to Fear. Spock has been the only character to appear in every iteration of Star Trek. Presumably taking over Leonard Nimoy's logical character will be a cinch. We can expect Star Trek DSC2 to premiere within fascinating CBS ALL ACCESS streamline range in early 2019.

What do you think of Peck's new Spock assignment taking place ahead of the classic Enterprise's timeline? Has the new guy got the ears to be a vulcan? Will Peck Spock be nerdier than Nimoy or Quinto? Aren't you curious to find out?

Its the Star Trek newsflash we've all been waiting to hear for ages, trekkers. 20 years have passed after Star Trek Nemesis!

by davemetlesits

Now finally, who else but captain of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 and friend to Trekkers and Trekkies everywhere, Patrick Stewart himself stuns us all, when he appears out of the cosmos to a cheering audience in Las Vegas so thrilled to see him. Why I hear you ask? Well, our former captain had plenty to say, thats what.

The news Patrick delivered at Comic Con over the weekend infected the place with delighted, grinning trekkers. So what was it?

Jean Luc Picard is Back - Just look at Patrick Stewart beaming with arms opened wide (Below) - Says it all really. What were the fans thinking? Check out the video. Energized with excitement many trekkers were busy high fiving, while others cried and laughed for joy.

If you want to read what Patrick Stewart had to say about Jean Luc's return instead of watching the video, I've included what he said at Las Vegas Comic Con below, enjoy reading my friends.

Live Long Prosper, Trekkers.

I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.
During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I'm ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.

This #Picard news is very exciting. It's the brain child of our dear friend and lifelong Trek "keeper of the flame" #KirstenBeyer. This couldn't have happened to a better or more talented artist and human being! Exciting times for #StarTrek!

What I can honestly say is that I was aware this was in the works even before I began developing my outline for the TNG book I'm currently writing, and that carrying on the TNG storyline as we've been laying it out all this time was my specific mandate, both from my editor and CBS Licensing. I point-blank asked about any particular concerns or issues which might impact what I was planning should this come to pass, and was told to carry on with what I was doing.
Personally, I'm not too worried about the TrekLit status quo, at least as things currently stand, but that's me, speaking only for myself but based on the conversations I've had about this.
There's a particular aesthetic choice that was made by I believe Mr. Westmore. But for me, I think the coolest challenge, because I like to do this with any design that I do, is to make sense of those choices. It's kind of reverse engineering why there's tubes and stuff going in and out of things. So it'd be to try and make sense of that and then contemporize that aesthetic with what audiences demand today and expect.
I also think that there's, again, it's me, so there's got to be a little room for a little steampunk in there. A little antediluvian something. So not too retro, and not a gear, but there is a biomech feel to the the whole thing, so to go to Geiger and steampunk and find a new way to combine it and maybe play with the colours and bring the palette out of the greys and the blacks and find some rusty and cool metallic tones, then also start defining the flesh in a different way. Like if some of those limbs are necrotic, is the tube pumping life back into them? Do they change color depending on how long they've been in the collective? How does the body stay alive? There are so many things to play with. It's sort of just taking what's there and playing with it. Michael Westmore Jr. did all the lasers and lights inside of all the little LED components. That's something today with 3D printing we can push infinitely further. We can do a lot more lighting and more moving parts.

Star Trek Phaser-controlled rock light

Remember Star Trek The Enemy Within a hellbent Captain Kirk making plays for Janice Rand? Well, toy company, "The Wand Company" have come up with a phaser-controlled rock mood light. Isn't that neat? Star Trek fans will recall Hikaru Pilot's Sulu's desperate attempts to stay warm on the planet surface, so here is a glowing recreation of the rock, controlled, by a phaser... and the rest you know.

The rock faithfully recreates the scene; with the phaser blast "heating" it up to full brightness, which then gradually dims once you stop firing (it is only light that you'll get though, no heat from this rock). There's also an alternate "atmosphere mode" where the rock can gradually shift through different colours and brightness. The rock is USB chargeable, and to complete your landing party experience comes complete with a Starfleet survival blanket! What will toy makers ever think of next?

Rebecca Romijn cast in Star Trek Discovery - X-Men Hollywood Sensation

Heres Captain Christopher Pike from Star Trek the classic series resurrected for 13 episodes of the New CBS/Netflix show, Star Trek Discovery... big news in trekverse right?

Well... until CBS decided to cast X-Men Hollywood star, Rebecca Romijn to take over as second in command of the USS Enterprise NCC1701. So which is the bigger news?

Bet a lot of fantasies are running wild now....

Originally this role was Majel Barretts whose long black shiny hair and geeky voice wasn't a smash in the 1st pilot.... so she became the lovely Christine Nurse Chapel with blonde hair! No-one will ever notice she said, as she dazzled executives (with dyed blonde hair) and  mysteriously appeared before Star Trek  creator/ husband Gene Roddenberry who was amazed.

Will CBS recast the original Mr Spock with a digital recreation?

Who are you looking forward to seeing first in Star Trek Discovery? 

1. Rebecca Romijn
2. Mr Spock (digital recreation)
3. Captain Christopher Pike
4. Mr Spock (played by an actor)

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers.

Time Travel Proof?

Hey trekkers, heres a time travellers message which I found today on Youtube sent recently to ApexTV. Have a listen - read the dialogue below my fellow trekkers or go bust a gut laughing your face off.

I haven't given up on Time Travel but seriously, is this really a Time Journey voice from the future? You decide...

 I reside in the year 4932. My name is irrelevant related to my motive for this communication. I am sending you this recording on my own regard. This message was proposed by myself to authorities but deemed to be unsafe. I do not believe it to be unsafe. I believe it to be necessary. I live in a time and a world that many of you would likely not relate to as ideal. I certainly do not. Time journey has destroyed our will for ambition. Bit by bit, future years are dwindling. When attempting to journey to a future year in which we have previously journeyed upon......


our error notes return the period classification as unavailable. Humanity no longer pursues progression. I tremendously fear that humanity has no future. We can reverse this. This is the purpose of my communication. Document this name and all the details I provide. Jaynou Oliver Beck. First name J-A-Y-N-O-U. Middle name, O-L-I-V-E-R. Last name, B-E-C-K. Born on September 12, 2018. Elected as the 56th president of the United States on November 3rd, 2082. Assassinated on July 11th, 2084 at 65 years of age. This recording is being produced before his birth to validate its authenticity. President Beck was also a famous philosopher in his time. He was rationally the most influential human being to ever have lived. He proved the existence of God to the masses through a single philosophical idea. His philosophy, perhaps disclosed by myself to the world too

It all sounds so fascinating until you hear this...

"if all we as natural beings have observed is the life and death of beings...(Duh what???) why are we ever to construct the idealogy of a continuation that exceeds death... ?????

What in blue blazes does President Beck's futuristic statement actually mean?

Doesn't the narrator sound genuinely convincing?

Do you believe humanity has no future?

If this Time Traveller stuck his hand out insisting "this is how we make friends from my century (4932)" How would you react?

Time travel is one of those subjects thats not too easily understood unless you're a Star Trek nerd or a scientist.

 I'll try to explain so here goes my friends. Its relatively easy to move forward in time, lets say someone manages to mastermind a supercomputer like Quincy we're all hearing about in Alien Encounters and build a starship. If one travels very nearly at the speed of light then time for you, slows up - until its scarcely moving.


What the hell? I hear you cry, hehe.  Well all this means is that for someone else, to an observer for instance, the time traveller seems to be "frozen-like" almost in time -  but not quite. It takes you twenty years to move forward an inch.


Realise theTime-traveler (thats you) lives normally when the rest of the world is moving a lot faster. So when you go somewhere, nearly the speed of light and come back, you may find that a million years has passed! You are just a few months older but then a million years has passed but then you can't go back. The sad realisation strikes that kin and relatives have all passed many years ago.


 All your descendants and maybe even humanity is no more... Of course the trick is to go that fast and figure out how to come back... anyone got any ideas on how to time travel back from the future? Who's winning in the race to build the worlds fastest Ultimate Computer?


Live Long and Prosper.

Spock Science, Mysteries and Fundamentalism

Well my friends, whenever something inexplicable happens like the construction of these great Sacsayhuaman Walls on the hilltop fortress outside of Cusco, can anyone explain this mystery? Because Earths smartest scientists can't but maybe Mr Spock could! Where's Spock?

Take a good look at the sheer size of these monstrous boulders. Impressive aren't they? some say they were built by Martians who came back from the future. There's enough mystery here to bewilder the brainiest scientists on Earth. So how did they build this earthquake city in Peru ?

For starters, no  respected Scientists will ever mix science with religion... "oh well, those massive walls must be God's will..." simply because us Earthers can't explain them.

I mean look at the precise way these Sacsayhuaman rocks fit together. Try explaining it. Hey maybe Donald Trump can - He's the wall expert.

Is there any point getting Logical about this... ah mystery. Unless extra terrestrials... nah...

what do you think ?

1. The Sacsayhuaman walls are extra terrestrial in nature or

2. They were built by humans because we're clever and work hard! or

3. "Thats God's will" - science and religious fundamentalism

which explanation do you believe?

Star Trek Discovery gets a new showrunner again.

Second star to the right, The Hollywood Reporter has dished the latest on Paramounts/CBS Star Trek Discovery show...

Showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg, replacements for Bryan Fuller who left the series,  are no longer calling the shots, with series co-creator Alex Kurtzman now taking the captains chair.

Alex Kurtzman

CBS released the following statement:

We’ve made some producer changes at Star Trek: Discovery. The series continues under the creative vision and leadership of executive producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman. Discovery remains on course for season two in 2019 with new and continuing stories that build on its successful premiere season

Akiva Goldsman

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first five episodes of season two have been completed under Harberts and Berg, but have come in over budget (which will have to be made up by the back end of the season). Some say the writing partners had emotional outbursts with other members in the writing room, with several writers threatening to leave the series! Sounds heavy doesn't it?

Meanwhile Akiva Goldsman Executive Producer 1st Season and Writer, Director has not returned for season two.

There may be troubled airspace ahead, what do you think?

Live Long and Prosper.
