For nearly 50 years, Star Trek has been one of the most dominant forces in pop culture. Trek’s history stretches beyond the shows themselves, because Gene Rodenberry’s vision of the future has inspired generations and broken boundaries. Want to learn more before next year’s anniversary? Look no further.
The current VR boom in technology has given us some pretty spectacular moments. Headsets like the Oculus Rift or HTC’s Vive even have entertainment giants planning content using them to create immersive experiences. That’s cool, sure. But none of that lets you wander around the Enterprise-D in awe, does it?
The old Star Trek: TNG joke is that even though its the 24th century, somehow Starfleet never discovered a cure for Picard's baldness. But apparently, they also couldn't even manage to give their highest-ranking officers uniforms that fit, as this amazing (and hilariously lengthy) supercut proves.
Sure, it's not a real movie, and is technically just a Star Trek: The Next Generation-filled parody of The Wolf of Wall Street trailer, but my god it is awesome. After all, revenge is a dish best served with 10-15 quaaludes a day.
Look, The World's End is definitely the big release of the week, possibly tied with season five of the remastered Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-ray, but all I want you to know is this week's DVDs includes a horror movie about shepherds fucking a broom. Seriously.
The other half of the battle is a terrifying, war between the G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie, the Star Trek: The Next Generation season 4 Blu-ray set, and Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, which should change DC animated movies for ever. You can only choose one — unless you want two or something.
Sir Patrick Stewart is a consummate actor whose professionalism is beyond reproach.... except when Sir Patrick Stewart isn't, because Sir Patrick Stewart can't remember his damn lines. As you might guess, this blooper reel — more of which will be on the Star Trek: TNG season 4 set released tomorrow — features the…
Even though Picard is clearly on vacation and trying to relax, the week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases march ever forward. This week includes fake superheroes, lesbian vampires and manborgs! (Also, here’s the uncropped pic, in case you want to see the Captain’s log.)
The word "hero" gets used a bit too much nowadays, but I think anyone who takes the time to find and assemble a 41-minute compilation video of every single Star Trek blooper and gag reel he/she could find may have genuinely earned the title. This video (which CBS/Paramount will probably not leave up too long)…
A Chinese case manufacturer is showing what looks to be an iPhone 5 in their product shots. It looks like the white 3D prototype we published a while back—complete with its new 19-pin dock port. But could this really be a unit smuggled out of Foxconn's factory?
What's the best part about living in the distant future? There's so much more past for you to explore! We take a look at some of science fiction's most illustrious antiquarians.
Battlestar Galactica producer Ron Moore is going back to his Star Trek roots for his next project, a "backdoor pilot" for Fox called Virtuality. Moore got his start writing for Star Trek: The Next Generation, which became notorious for its frequent episodes featuring the crew trapped inside a holographic simulation…
The cardinal rule in the Star Trek universe is the Prime Directive, which forbids the super-advanced Federation from interfering with the development of less-advanced cultures. Of course every crew breaks it regularly, but some crews have broken it more than others. Since Star Trek often tries to make reference to…
Must-see TV shows are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale.
