Sometimes it seems the real reason some people choose to have kids is so that they can pour all of their pre-baby time and energy into a big “hooray, we’re pregnant!” announcement. YouTuber Nokem came up with a simpler, but utterly fantastic approach that fans of Star Trek: TNG will wish they’d thought of.
Let’s face it: We could all use a little Trek to balance out our Wars. Sideshow has unveiled its first Star Trek: The Next Generation Master Series figure for Captain Jean-Luc Picard, and it’s time to set phasers to stunning.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the best toys in this galaxy (and any other). This week, a bizarro Godzilla figurine, a very slick Star-Lord figure, a fancy Star Trek lamp, and maybe more than a few new Star Wars toys, thanks to Celebration Orlando. Gird your wallets and check them out below!
We all know in our souls that being a redshirt on Star Trek is basically like having a death wish. But our old enemy, math, has stepped in again to tell us that we’re wrong.
The Star Trek rumor mill has been full of reports that The Next Generation actor Michael Dorn would return to his Klingon roots on Star Trek: Discovery. Turns out, nope, that’s not happening. However, it sounds like he was offered a part, but turned it down after hearing how small his paycheck would be.
If anyone is going to do justice to Roger C. Carmel’s most glorious Star Trek character, it’s going to be Rainn Wilson.
Hey kids, gather around, we’re going to have some fun today! Or, as we’d like to say this week, “Heghlu’meH QaQ jajvam!” A popular German kids show is bringing young ensigns into the Star Trek family, introducing its latest episode entirely in Klingon. Qapla’!
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's new weekly series gathering the latest and shiniest pop culture toys and merchandise around. This week: a very fancy take on Peter Parker’s low-rent Spider-Man: Homecoming look, a giant Optimus Prime, and a fully armed and operational battle teapot. Let’s take a look!
Welcome, my post-keteers! This week’s irradiated mailbag is just heaving with questions waiting to be answered by your equally irradiated postman. Should the DC movies introduce New Gods other than Darkseid? Why is Daredevil’s Stick so badass? Plus, Valiant’s movie efforts, half-Vulcan virility, and more. Let’s get to…
Current events and social issues have always played a part in shaping Star Trek from its earliest days, whether it be the idealistic future of the Federation or using alien races as metaphors for society’s dark side. In Deviations: Star Trek, it’s humanity that’s messed up after the tyrannical Romulans make first…
The U.S.S. Discovery has welcomed aboard its captain. CBS has just confirmed that Jason Isaacs will join its next Star Trek series—but don’t forget, for the first time ever in the franchise, the captain will not be the main star.
Adam Nimoy thinks it would be pretty cool if his father’s most iconic role was digitally restored in the Star Trek universe. You know, like how Rogue One did with some of Star Wars’ most familiar characters.
CBS and Paramount might not think it’s worth their time to make an HD version of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but the folks behind the DS9 documentary are determined to present the show at its best. They’re working on getting the negatives for some of the show’s best scenes, so they can do the job themselves.
Part of world-building is language. If you’re creating an entirely new alien species, you’re generally also going to have to create an entirely new language for them. And what good is a language without a bit of profanity? Not much.
Halloa and well met, people on my post-apocalyptic mail route! Not gonna lie, this week’s group of questions forced me to think extra hard about canon vs. quality, why America doesn’t care about Judge Dredd, if Back to the Future’s Doc Brown is a time-traveling hypocrite, and more. Hopefully it’s worth it! (For you, I…
There was a lot to like in Star Trek Beyond, but it’s pretty clear that its best new addition to the Trek movie universe was Sofia Boutella’s ass-kicking alien hero Jaylah. Her arrival in the Star Trek comics is good news—as is the fact you can get a first look at her origin story right here.
A leaked photo that looks to be from the set of Star Trek: Discovery has given us our first peek at the new Klingons. And, yeah, there are some things we need to discuss.
Deep Space Nine’s fans have spoken, and they want a behind-the-scenes look at their beloved yet divisive Star Trek series. Less than a day after DS9's cast and crew announced a fundraising campaign to complete What We Left Behind, the documentary reached its goal of $150,000 in funding... and that number’s still going…
Deep Space Nine has been both praised and derided as the “Black Sheep” of the Star Trek universe. Now, almost 25 years after the series debuted, some of the shows stars and writers are coming together to make a documentary all about where DS9 took us, as well as where it would’ve gone if it had gotten another season.
