I love the original Star Trek very much but I don’t deny its flaws, some of which Greg Hatcher discussed here. Along with flaws in the philosophy and political arguments …
At 49, I’m now officially older than most of my childhood heroes. That can’t help but be a little depressing. But am I handling it any better than they are?
Even before Chris Pine gave us a hotheaded, womanizing Jim Kirk in the Star Trek reboot films, lots of people, including Star Trek fans, though of James Tiberius Kirk that …
It’s an interesting question: What episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series are explicitly in continuity because they were referenced in the Trek movies? Could you state that, say, “A Taste Of Armageddon” definitely happened to our heroes because it was referenced in one of the films?

Last week, I talked about STAR TREK: NEW VISIONS, the photomontage comics series of Star Trek adventures that John Byrne is doing for IDW.
But before John Byrne got a regular gig telling STAR TREK stories, he was just like the rest of us – A STAR TREK fan who’d occasionally make reference to it in his everyday life.

Which is why I’ve been celebrating all year. And this past Saturday, I decided to top off my 2016 Trek celebrations by taking a road trip to see Star Trek: The Original Series Set Tour. These sets were originally built for the fan film series ‘Star Trek: New Voyages’ (later known as Phase II) by TOS superfan James Cawley.
