45th Saturn Awards - Star Trek Winners

USS DISCOVERY  NCC 1031
 Hollywoods filmmakers have cast their votes for The 45th Saturn Awards. So the academy elite membership of head honchos - J J Abrams, Bryan Singer, Steven Spielberg, Bryan Fuller, Mark A Altman, Vince Gillgan and James Cameron have spoken.

Indeed some say Star Trek finally won awards because so much is right about it. Finally Gene Roddenberry's legacy is being recognized - real acting awards for real actors, not just achievements in sound, special effects, costume, editing, hairstyling, makeup and music. Its true, these are still cool categories and Star Trek has deserved to win them.

However over the weekend all thats changed. Forget about the crumbs off the table. Duh what? cos' like Star Trek is boldly succeeding where no TV series has gone before......




Heres are the 2019 Saturn Winners for Star Trek Discovery TV show, warping through space with our heroes battling chaos in the galaxy.

At least 3 of these Star Trek nominees won Saturn Awards here on Earth with Starfleet picking up the tab since the Federations charter in 2161. Impressive aren't they?

The Saturn Awards are often criticized for being too inconsistent with genres, as well as for nominating and awarding movies not related to sci-fi, fantasy or horror. Nomad would have a field day. What do you think? Speak now or be neutralized by nomad.

STAR TREK PICARD / DISCOVERY COMIC CON

Star Trek is boldly going to the Big Apple, New York Picard/Discovery style for Comic Con on thursday, October 3 to 6th - the third time now. So who's coming to the party my trekker friends?

PATRICK STEWART AKA PICARD OF USS ENTERPRISE
NCC 1701


Currently-filming castmates Sonequa Martin-Green (Burnham), Doug Jones (Saru), Mary Wiseman (Tilly), Anthony Rapp (Stamets), Wilson Cruz (Culber), and newcomer David Ajala (Booker) are recording the ongoing adventures of the USS Discovery NCC 1031

 — crew now hard at work producing the third season of Star Trek: Discovery — 

It seems like these guys are trying to make the Discovery appear like traditional Star Trek again with Captain Pike back calling the shots.



JOHNATHAN FRAKES AKA RIKER - STAR TREK TNG
The big draw for fans will certainly be the cast of the next big Trek adventure, Star Trek Picard - starring Patrick Stewart (Picard), freshmen Alison Pill (Agnes Jurati), Isa Briones (Dahj), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Santiago Cabrera (Chris Rios), Harry Treadaway (Narek), and Evan Evagora (Elnor), along with executive producer Alex Kurtzman who will be part of both halves of the event.


SONEQUA MARTIN GREEN AKA MICHAEL BURNHAM



These Starfleet Star Trek crews will be returning to The Theater at Madison Square Garden — the site of the last two years of NYCC Trek panels — on Saturday, October 5 from 1PM – 2:30PM ET.




Are you going to Comic Con this year to join in the fun? How do you rate Star Trek Discovery season 1, 2 and 3 for optimism?

Which Star Trek series, Discovery or Star Trek Picard are you a fan of? 

Which Star Trek characters will you be rooting for when S T Picard or STDiscovery streams online?

Live Long and Prosper, Trekker amigos.

CAPTAIN PICARD TV SERIES

So analysis has begun with Star Trek Picard's trailer... after a 17 year TNG hiatus some of trek's icons have returned. Here we can see actors and crew who have changed the face of sci-fi and Star Trek. Isn't it neat seeing Picard, Seven and Data again?.... only Data looks different. Cos like remember B4? He sure was one unusual situation.... Well, guess what?



Brent Spiner said at Comic Con, that he's only in occasional episodes as B4. Fans are giving positive feedback generally pleased with the Star Trek Picard trailer with arms opened wide but questions remain. Where's Worf? We also see a Borg cube with missing sections but curiously Borg regeneration chambers are visible.


Damn, how can Jeri Ryan still be so hot???? 20 years later??? nanaprobes right? Shes like 51 but lets get serious when you see a woman all wrapped up like Seven, she definitely makes an impression.




The main characters in the show are the young men and women. Picard, Seven of Nine and Data appearing seem to up the stakes somehow because they're so likable. So who's the villain? We don't know much except a hot babe Picard has encountered whom he believes is in danger.....

Live Long and Prosper my trekker friends.
