It would seem that December is rife with Star Trek birthdays. Today is the birthday of our lovely Lt. Uhura, Star Trek's own Nichelle Nichols. Before joining the crew of the Enterprise in 1966, Nichelle was an accomplished theatrical actress and singer, touring with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton. As we reported earlier this year, she originally saw "Star Trek" as a way to further her career on Broadway.
"It was rather interesting to me to be cast on the show, because I came up in musical theater," Nichelle said. "And somehow I was, like, really on my way to break through and do all of the things that I really wanted to do on Broadway. And I took 'Star Trek' because I thought it would be a nice adjunct to my resume and I'd get to Broadway quicker and as a star. And, I still think that way, but 'Star Trek' interrupted my career."
"I kind of got stuck there," She said. "As a matter of fact, I even tried to leave after the first season, because I thought, 'Oh, this is going nowhere for me."CONTINUE READING >>
It appears that Cryptic Studios has the holiday spirit. From now until January 3rd, you can take 20% off all of your purchases in the Star Trek Online C-store. This actually could come in pretty handy considering Cryptic has been steadily adding ship & costume updates over the past several months. The most recent editions include the first playable Nausicaan ship for the Klingon faction, plus the federation uniforms from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". (*Update* it appears that these two items are excluded from the holiday sale... LAME) We're kinda fond of the "Motion Picture" duds, since that film was our first experience in the Star Trek universe. It seems some Trek fans claim that the motion picture was "too beige", but we found it extremely fitting for the late 70s / early 80s. Anyway, check out more C-store details below.
Oh, and apparently, the Nausicaan ship has lots of Guramba....CONTINUE READING >>

Set for release sometime next year, William Shatner's "The Captains" documentary is coming close to completion. The Shat discussed his new documentary at both Vegas Khhaaann! & Plano Fan Days this, giving little details about the film. Heck, he even filmed portions of the documentary while walking around in the crowds in Vegas. If you don't know about "The Captains", it focuses on the lives of all five Trek captains with full interviews from each.
"We've got a great film, there's a lot of it and we're passionately putting it together. We'll have it ready in the near future. There are extensive interviews and there will be a lot of clips involving actors who played the captain on Star Trek and what elements unify us and what things are divergent about us. There's a great deal that is common among the actors, their experience, their temperaments." Says ShatnerCONTINUE READING >>
The amazingly daunting task continues. After episode 1 of "Best Star Trek Episode Ever" the Geek Fighters have whittled the alpha bracket down to DS9's "In the Pale Moonlight". A fantastic episode, yes, but will it stand up against...... Thought I was going tell you, didn't you? You'll just have to listen to the latest fantastic and ultimately Trek geek-centric episode of Geek Fights. In this episode you can hear the slowly deepening, sickly voice of your's truly. I'm joined by Jerad "Hey Star Trek! / super_spock" Formby, Michael Felsher, and Geek Fights hosts Damon Shaw, & Mike Ortiz. Good times and lots of laughs will be had by all. On top of the all the Trek goodness, you can also enjoy listening to me mispronounce Corbomite, talk about Charles Bronson, confuse "Where No Man Has Gone Before" with "Where No One Has Gone Before", and finally explain how Jeffrey Combs was on a show called "The 3300" (That's the 4400). Some of the content might not be suitable for younger ears, but seriously though, there are some really great and insightful discussions happening in the episode that you won't want to miss. Check out the details below.CONTINUE READING >>
Happy birthday to Nicole de Boer, she turns 40 today. Many of you remember Nicole as the second incarnation of Dax (or is that 11th); Ezri Dax from the last season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. After leaving DS9, Nicole went on to star opposite Anthony Michael Hall in "Stephen King's Dead Zone" from 2002 to 2007. According to IMDB, she also has several upcoming TV movies in the works.
Something we didn't know, she also had a small role in the Kids in the Hall movie "Brain Candy". Hailing from the Great White North, just like the "Kids", Nicole is currently married to film score composer John Kastner. We'd like to give warm birthday wishes to Nicole. Happy birthday.
Hat tip to Cmdr. Torkadon for giving us a heads up.
