Star Trek's Monstrous Timeline

Star Trek creators are trying to make a new Star Trek series that will appeal to audiences but are we losing something? Star Trek continuity is on shaky ground now. The technology and appearance of starships is far more advanced compared to any previous Star Trek shows. The ship is slick and shiny.... very high tech for a show 10 years before Captain Kirks USS Enterprise NCC 1701


Okay so the Klingons really need to be intimidating and monstrous given scary is fun right? Lets face it, Star Trek Discovery is set a decade before the original series in which Klingons had smooth foreheads. So what if the special effects were crap in the 60's...





The change in appearance was explained in a story arc in Star Trek Enterprise and DS9. Some wanted to boldly go back where no fan had gone before, Roddenberry era. hating these storylines. The thing is lots of fans just accept that Star Trek's classic budget was restricted which did not allow for fancy Klingon prosthetics and costumes.

Wrong say other fans. We love the Klingon Star Trek Enterprise episodes! These episodes are brilliant but yet again continuity is been cancelled out by Star Trek's new Discovery series. ... with monsterous Klingons! Isn't this great! Creatures, we love monsters and War!


Set roughly ten years before the events of Star Trek: The Original Series,[1] the show sees the united Klingon houses in a war with the United Federation of Planets that involves the crew of the USS Discovery

NO, NO! Never, never cry other fans!!!!!!

So which side of the fence are you on?

Classic Star Trek, Enterprise, DS9 or Discovery?

KOOR, WORF, T'KUVMA
Some say the only way to enjoy watching Star Trek Discovery is to pretend all the other Star Trek shows never ever happened, like wowsers! Can you believe that?  First, Star Trek Enterprise was blamed for ruining Star Trek, attacking Berman and Braga.

So will fans hate Star Trek Discovery for changing Star Trek's continuity, even more?. Others might love it for being completely different. Change is exciting right? Where do you stand?

KOOR, WORF OR T'KUVMA?

Aren't you looking forward to boldly trekking out where no fan or klingon has gone before?

Live Long and Prosper

TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO TREKKER HAS GONE BEFORE

A Trekker is attempting to set a record this week on the 19th May by being the first National Rehabilitation Hospital employee to boldly go where no trekker has gone before..... but why, I hear you cry?

Simply put the NRH is fundraising to raise funds for a new hospital to provide for the needs of the children and adults who need rehabilitation services in Ireland.

FIND OUT MORE


Some say Count dracula roamed the wilds of Transylvania. Legend has it, the centuries old vampire took his female guests back to Dracs Castle to wine and dine on them.

.......and later this is what happened to them.







Who knows maybe our trekker pal will run into some trekketes as he sets out to raise funds for the NRH. Win or lose hes a winner for competing in this 50 kilometer challenge.





So if you can find it within yourself why not share a few bucks. The National Rehabilitation Hospital needs your support. You can donate here.




UPDATE:  With Transylvania's Castle in the Background, a hearty CONGRATULATIONS goes to The 2018  50K WINNER Andrei Tale who set his second title with an amazing race record of 7h51:09 or is it 5h51:09? At any rate facebook has the Transylmania here


Which Star Trek character said the  "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one"


Live Long and Prosper.

Adam Savages Star Trek Captain's Chair


Its the greatest toy ever built and its got two secret buttons with fight music! You know, there are plenty of plans out there and all of them are different in specifications. I am of course referring to Adam Savage's Star Trek Captain Kirk's Chair project.

We're in for a real thrill today--Adam shares his Star Trek Captain's Chair story, which he became obsessed with building from scratch after acquiring a pretty hopeless replica.



The original Captain Kirk's bridge chair is at the EMP Project in seattle. With the help of friend Jeremy Williams, Adam spends a day wiring in the electronics to bring his new NCC 1701 USS Enterprise command chair to life.To get the chair right, fans will appreciate the tricky nature of this build because everything from the interface panels, lights display, rocket switches, five push buttons and Scotties intercom had to match Star Trek's Classic TV show.

After much problem solving and troubleshooting, will their efforts pays off? Well theres only one way to find out. Watch the video.  Enjoy - Live Long and Prosper.
