Texas Supreme Court Cites Spock From Star Trek II In Recent Filed Opinion

Texas Supreme Court Cites Spock From Star Trek II In Recent Filed Opinion

In a recent opinion on the case Robinson v. Crown Cork and Seal filed by the Texas Supreme Court, our favorite Vulcan was cited. The case was a challenge to the constitutionality of part of House Bill 4 (2003), which retroactively eliminated all pending and future asbestos claims against Crown Cork & Seal Co, as successor to Mundet Cork Corp. The underlying claims were brought by John Robinson and his wife Barbara against Crown and others. Mr. Robinson was a 20-year U.S. Navy veteran who developed mesothelioma following asbestos exposure during his service as a boiler tender.

Texas Supreme court Justice Don R. Willett cited Spock and "Star Trek II: The Wraith of Khan" in the opinion filed October 22nd, 2010:CONTINUE READING >>

North Texans Send Star Trek's Captain Kirk Into Stratosphere

North Texans Send Star Trek's Captain Kirk Into Stratosphere

We just received word that on October 17th, two brothers from North Texas launched a weather balloon that passed through the stratosphere while carrying a payload that included a Captain Kirk figure. The project was meant to celebrate the importance of libraries in our communities and the Trek stars that attended the Star Trek Fan Days in Plano, TX. Along with the Captain Kirk action figure, 3 library cards, miniature model of the Enterprise, and Doc Brown action figure, the small foam capsule carried a lightweight camera that documented the entire flight. Check out a link to the video below for some truly astounding photos.

Crewman Becky Reviews: Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Cutter by Think Geek

What do you do after days of waiting on baited breath for your Star Trek Pizza Cutter from Think Geek to arrive at your house? Dig out that frostbitten pizza from your freezer, of course. So after plopping that block of ice…errr…ummm, I mean pizza, into the oven we ran for our camera so that we could share the shiny-ness that is the Star Trek Pizza Cutter with you.

First off we were impressed with the quality of the box. The packaging is worthy of note, as many of the pizza cutters are (we’re sure) destined to a collector’s display cabinet, never to touch a pizza. The main product box is inside a generic white box, which was inside a typical cardboard box for shipping. This main box is made of very sturdy cardboard with quite an appealing graphic stamped onto it with a silver leaf feel. In fact, it’s so nice we don’t want to throw it away. I have a feeling it’s going to end up in the closet with our Apple product boxes that seem just a little too nice to get rid of (…and before you ask if there are piles of newspapers stacked up around here, the answer is NO). Inside you’ll find that the pizza cutter is nestled in billowy foam gently holding it in place, clean and scratch free. Once you remove the covering foam pieces you are treated to a view of a shiny silver version of the Original Series U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.CONTINUE READING >>

Trek Culture Review: Star Trek DS9’s Nana Visitor’s Gourmet Desserts

Our favorite chef is at it again. Nana Visitor has two more installments on her Youtube channel for your enjoyment. Over here at Subspace Communique’s headquarters our TV viewing is pretty basic. We’re either watching an iteration of Star Trek or a PBS cooking show. Well, now that we’ve stumbled across Nana’s cooking channel we’ve found a way to combine our interests into one giant ball of fantastic-ness. In her latest show we follow along with her as she goes to a local farmer’s market, and then returns home to whip up her findings into a delectable delight. We’re still trying to figure out how she makes and eats all this great food and still maintains her fabulous figure. Nana, if you’re reading, we’d love to know your secret!CONTINUE READING >>

Remember Star Trek: The Experience With The Intergalactic Bartender

Remember Star Trek: The Experience With The Intergalactic Bartender

We've all pined away for Star Trek: The Experience to make its triumphant return. In fact, just like many of you out there, we hang on every bit of news that comes out of Vegas that might hint at ST:TE's emergence from its long slumber. Sure, we can't sit at Quark's bar and order food and drink, but we can do the next best thing. Make familiar drinks at home in out-of-this-world glassware.CONTINUE READING >>

We'll, maybe there weren't any tears, but it sounded great, didn't it?
