Second only to Toy Fair back in February, this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con brought us more toy news than our wallets can reasonably take.

But Picard’s Enterprise apparently still relied on isolinear chips—Star Trek’s version of flash drives— to share data. ThinkGeek’s version probably isn’t quite as advanced, but you don’t have to tell your…

Wesley Crusher - Wunderkind, General Annoyance, Style Icon. But never fear, dedicated followers of Star Trek fashion: Wesley's most iconic
design travesty sweater can now be emulated in handy dandy Hoodie format. Good god people, what have we done? We must be stopped.
It's getting colder and colder as November plows on, so if someone could buy me this Hoodie so I could feel both worthy of the Klingon Empire and a bit warmer? That'd be great.
At the end of the July, Star Trek fans get an extra special treat with the release of a high-definition transfer of the twenty-five episode first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Today at San Diego Comic-Con, we had the chance to see an extra-early peak at the restoration process performed on this historic…
Nerd icon Wil Wheaton has returned to sci-fi television as Eureka's slimy Dr. Isaac Parrish. We spoke with him at Comic-Con about just what makes good (and bad) technobabble, the secret to playing a scientist, and what's ahead on Eureka!
Can a porn "parody" of a science fiction classic have reasonably good acting, nice special effects, and a plot that you could give a crap about? That's the real final frontier.
