The third episode of Star Trek: Discovery lays the groundwork for the main conflict and characters of the season, while promising a new technology that seems doomed to fail... given that it doesn’t seem to exist anywhere else in the franchise. Jason Isaacs swears we should put our faith in the writers, but io9 Video…
You don’t see Gucci mentioned on io9 that often, given the Italian fashion house isn’t really into props or cosplay. But to help introduce its 2017 Fall and Winter fashion campaign, the brand created a short film inspired by the original Star Trek series. It’s wonderful, and we’d happily trade Star Trek: Discovery for…
Details on Star Trek: Discovery have been fairly scarce—we’ve got a few good general ideas, but nothing specific. That’s changed now, because a bevy of props and images are currently on display at San Diego Comic-Con, and while Starfleet is always Starfleet, the Klingons are stealing the show.
Spock. Data. Odo. Tuvok. T’Pol. Every Star Trek show needs that aloof, nonhuman member of the team to comment on the weirdly human things that happen to them in life on a Starfleet vessel, and Discovery is no exception—say hello to Lieutenant Saru, Doug Jones’ freaky new Trek officer.
We’re getting closer and closer, at long last, to Star Trek: Discovery’s arrival, and that means more and more glimpses of the show’s shiny new take on Star Trek past. Yesterday we got a new-and-improved look at the titular ship, but now we have a great look at the show’s new-old take on Star Trek’s iconic tech.
Greetings, my little priority envelopes. I apologize for the spottiness of “Postal Apocalypse” recently, but rest assured I had very good reasons that I’m absolutely not going to tell you about. This week: Whether superheroes truly create their villains, the reason Jurassic World’s dinosaurs didn’t and won’t have…
At this point, I would like to see a show based on the making of Star Trek: Discovery more than the actual Star Trek: Discovery. What is happening over there?

Netflix’s The Discovery comes from the writer-director behind The One I Love, Charlie McDowell. And if this trailer is any indication, The Discovery is going to be just as weird and messed up as that film.
The Sundance Film Festival is well-known for debuting some of the best films of any given year. In fact, it’s likely many of your favorite movies of all time have premiered at Sundance—and next year, that may happen again.
Behold the U.S.S. Discovery, designation NCC-1031. What’s really cool is that it’s based on concept art the legendary Ralph McQuarrie did for the first Trek motion picture. See it in action in the show’s first teaser!
In an inversion of how we’re used to seeing things, a film with an amazing cast and an innovative writer-director will make its debut on Netflix ,and then make its way to theaters.
After almost 300 episodes and fifteen seasons on Discovery, the Mythbusters have called it quits. To commemorate the end, Thomas Crenshaw put together an amazing supercut that reminds us why the show was awesome.
If we met new life – on this planet or the next – would we know it when we saw it? Matthew Francis investigates.
The NASA Discovery Program is sorting through suggestions for the agency’s next spaceflight investigation. Today, NASA released a shortlist of just five missions — one or two of which should launch by 2021.
The Discovery Channel, home of sharks and professional pyromaniacs, has a lot of cool stuff to show off. So it makes complete sense to cherry-pick some of the best moments, and package them into bite-size VR experiences.
Tonight’s episode of Mythbusters, Flights of Fantasy features two very different types of flying machines: drones and a Lockheed U-2 spy plane. Show hosts Adam Savage and Jaime Hyneman took a couple of minutes to chat with us about the episode and the rest of the newly-rebooted season of the show.
When I was 15, I spent a lot of time playing Nintendo 64 in a dark basement. Tom Wagg, on the other hand, discovered a new planet 1,000 lightyears away.
Nothing’s more heartbreaking than when one of your favorite services—one you rely on every day—announces it’s shutting down. It’s a pain, but you don’t have to just accept it. Here’s how you can find a replacement that doesn’t suck.
Have you been angered by the Discovery Channel recently? Maybe for its completely erroneous Megalodon "documentary," or its disgusting, botched "man eaten alive by anaconda" stunt? Well, then you're probably a decent person. You also might be Rich Ross, the new president of the Discovery Channel.
