So we got our first glimpse of the USS Discovery the other day, to mixed reactions. I was poking around the interwebs to learn a bit more about the Ralph McQuarrie design it was based off of, and I stumbled upon this guy’s amazing re-imagining of the design.

The Guardian has reported that Amazon CEO and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos has a cameo as a “Starfleet Official” in Star Trek Beyond. No word yet on whether he adheres to the Prime Directive?

The Enterprise filming model from the original Star Trek series has been restored by the Smithsonian and is looking fantastic! Trekcore took a video:
Filming started on series ten of Doctor Who today. But time-warping back to 1969, we were watching the end of the original season six.

A new player jumps in to defend the free use of the Klingon Language!
I hate Wesley Crusher more then anyother character on Star Trek. Could he have been a normal child? Nope. A super genius and annoying as hell. I swear they took the Will Robinson and said “let’s make Wesley smarter and more annoying”. The end of his character as a God Like Traveler was so over the top stupid.
An early birthday present came through the post this morning in the form of IDW’s hardcover collection of Star Trek strips produced for the UK market. It collects material published between January 1969 and December 1970 which hasn’t seen print since those halcyon days.

Good news everyone! According to Birth. Movies. Death. (It’s still so awkward to spell that name out in full...) Bryan Fuller’s new Star Trek serial might be set in the prime universe instead of the alternate reality featured in the current movie series.
Dawn of (In)Justice?
We go back to the DS9 well for this week. Let’s look at the episode that introduced Section 31 to the ST canon, “Inquisition”, episode 6x18, that first aired April 8th, 1998.
1998, for lack of a more original phrase, was a hell of a year for baseball.
On March 22nd, 1931, the man who would lead the world to the future, William Shatner was born. This week on Midweek Trivia, we look into the life of a man who went where no man has gone before....and where every man has gone before.
With all of the political drama in our American Presidential election cycle, I thought now would be a good time to look at some of the political systems that are depicted in speculative fiction.
