Star Trek: Waypoint #1

A blockbuster bi-monthly anthology to celebrate 50 years of STAR TREK, featuring short stories across all Treks, by the top talent of today and yesterday!

First, a NEXT GENERATION story by Donny Cates and Mack Chater. Unable to decipher a mysterious ship’s coded messages, Starfleet has enlisted its two greatest scientific minds, Captain Geordi La Forge and his best friend Data, to investigate.

We’re Thankful For …..Movies!

Each and every day of this coming week, we’re going to be telling you what we’re thankful for! We work hard every day to bring you geeky reviews and as we do that, we find our favorites…the ones we are truly thankful for coming across our desks, in our inboxes, at the theatres and everywhere that geeky things tend to sneak into our lives.

Each day will have a different theme and hopefully will introduce you to some awesome that you might have missed as well as us showing our thanks for the amazing creators that are out there.

Even geeks like downtime! What do we do when we have a chance to relax? Quite often it involves a remote, the dvr, Netflix, and just plain vegging out or if we’re super lucky, we get to sneak out to the local theatre for some popcorn and action! Nikolas, Brian, Tim, ...

Star Trek Continues – Episode #1 “Pilgrim of Eternity”

 The series, as the title suggests, picks up right where the original
series left off with the Enterprise and her crew continuing their 5 year
mission.  While I missed the premiere at Phoenix Comicon this year, I
was able to finally sit down and watch it a couple of days ago.  I have
to admit, I had a moment of doubt that this could be a terrible
train-wreck, but that feeling passed not only with the first three
4-minute vignettes, but also with the first few minutes of the first
episode “Pilgrim of Eternity”.

As a kid, I used to watch Star Trek TOS episodes in
reruns with my dad. As an adult, I recently ran through the entire
series, along with every other Star Trek show that aired (Thanks,
Netflix!).  Watching STC’s beautiful love-letter to the original show
unfold, I couldn’t help...

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Well, that rascally crew of the Enterprise is back for some more madcap
shenanigans in this lighthearted romp brought to us once again by JJ
Abrams.That should be enough for the purposes of a “preview” paragraph,
right? I want to make sure there are no spoilers here.

*****************Spoilers Below!***********************
OK, everyone had a chance to click away? Good.
 I’m writing this barely an hour after having finished watching Star
Trek Into Darkness and I gotta say: I’m not entirely sure how I feel
about it yet. I mean, it was great and I was largely entertained, don’t
get me wrong. But there were some elements that left me uneasy about the
whole of the movie. 
First, let’s talk about the
elephant in the room – Benedict Cumberbatch. Yes he played a
fantastically cold villa...
