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.

Live long and Prosper

‘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?

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 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.

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?

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?


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

Live Long and Prosper
