First trailer for Star Trek Beyond blasts unto the internet!

First trailer for Star Trek Beyond blasts unto the internet! The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was released unto the internet, and it’s nothing short of amazing! Paramount decided to release the trailer early even though it was supposed to show as a teaser in front of the Force Awakens. However, after some screen caps were leaked over the weekend and finally a low-resolution trailer auf Deutsch this morning the decision was made to release the trailer properly. I must say, it...

New Star Trek TV series - woman in skirt uniform

Thoughts on the new Star Trek TV series set for 2017

A new Star Trek TV series, from CBS After years of rumors the bullet is finally through the church (a saying in my part of the world). CBS has announced it will be producing a new Star Trek TV show set for release in 2017. Not much is known besides that. The press release did say that veteran TV producer Alex Kurtzman would helm the reboot. Kurtzman has worked on shows such as Xena, Alias, Fringe and Sleepy Hollow. He...

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review novella cover

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review Christopher L. Bennett is finally back with another Department of Temporal Investigations story. This time it is a novella instead of a novel like his previous two outings. I used to write regular updates and reviews of Star Trek novels, but frankly reading all the material would be a full-time job. That, along with the end of the Starfleet Academy series has meant I haven’t done a review in over a year. The Collectors isn’t...

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu Ray

While attempting to keep an eye on all the presents I want to buy for other people this holiday season I almost forgot Star Trek has several big releases. Most notably the last season of Star Trek The Next Generation has been released on Blu-ray. You can now watch Picard, Troi, Worf and the other one last time in 1080p. Or you can watch it as often as you like afterwards. Today I stumbled upon the box set by chance....

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer - John delancie as Q in All Good Things

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer and Preview

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer Finally the last season of The Next Generation will get its Blu-Ray release. Ever since CBS home released a preview disk set of 4 TNG episodes in full HD in 2012 it has been a pleasure to rewatch the entire series. In my opinion the experience is drastically improved over the lackluster DVD release from years back. The special effects and the drama seem to contain a lot more impact with the remastered HD release....

Star Trek The Next Generation Season 6 Blu-ray Review Officially the season 6 Blu-Ray disc set for Star Trek TNG wasn’t supposed to be released until the 24th of June. I had forgotten to pre-order my copy so imagine my surprise when I saw it in the shops 5 days early. Of course I had to buy it in order to watch it and review it.  It has been since November that a TNG season was released in HD. I think fans...

Enterprise season 4 Blu ray review - Jolene Blalock in skirt uniform as T'Pol

Enterprise Season 4 Blu-Ray Review

As the series finale of Star Trek The Next Generation tells us ‘All good things come to an end’. And so has the last Star Trek series, after only 4 seasons it was cancelled in 2005. The show had a fantastic last 2 season but viewer fatigue and a lack of innovation meant it got cut short just when things started to get interesting. Star Trek had been steadily dropping in ratings since DS9 and Voyager which makes the course that...

Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray out September 10th

Star Trek Into Darkness may have been a mixed bag but it is definitely a movie worth a second and third viewing just to understand it properly. For those not wanting to go a to an empty cinema there will soon be the possibility of owning a copy of the movie on DVD or Blu-ray complete with a whole host of extra’s. The release has been scheduled for September 10th for a tentative price of 19.99. Which I believe will just be...
