Sir Patrick Stewart is heading back to the Royal Shakespeare Company to play Shylock in the bard's "The Merchant of Venice" this spring. With over 60 RSC productions under his belt, Sir Patrick will be reuniting with director Rupert Goold for the production as a part the RSC's 50th birthday season. The play will run from May 19th to September 26th 2011 and preview on May 13th.
According to Whatsonstage.com; Goold and Stewart previously worked together on the RSC’s 2006 production of The Tempest, which transferred to the West End, and most famously, on the multi award-winning 2007 Chichester production of Macbeth, which transferred to the West End and Broadway and was subsequently filmed. Following Macbeth, Stewart returned to the RSC in 2009 to play Claudius to David Tennant’s Hamlet, which also transferred to the West End and which won Stewart both Olivier and Whatsonstage.com Awards for Best Supporting Actor.CONTINUE READING >>

Spending time on Youtube has become an unfortunate pastime for us lately. We say unfortunate, but occasionally you find a few diamonds in the rough. For instance, Captain Jean Luc Picard visits the 21st century to satiate his hunger for greasy fast food.
"The second drive-thru window; the first portal to a new dimension. One greater, one more wondrous than our own." - Captain Jean Luc Picard
In all seriousness though, this video started off kinda slow, but we actually laughed out loud, or LOL'd as the kids like to call it. Check out the embedded video below.
If you are near the Dallas Texas area this weekend (January 29 & 30, 2011) be sure to stop by the “Women Of Sci-Fi” convention that’s being held in Plano, a Dallas suburb. You will get the chance to see and hear a ton of great female actors from the sci-fi genre; including Star Trek’s own Nichelle Nichols (Uhura). If you aren’t in the area be sure to watch our site over the weekend because we’ll be there live blogging all the good stuff for you, so you won’t miss a thing.
This isn’t a Star Trek convention per se, but who could resist the amazing line up they have going. Chances are if you like Trek, then you dig other sci-fi shows too. Some of the other shows being represented at the con are; Battlestar Galactica, V, Firefly, Buck Rogers, Stargate, Stargate Universe, Smallville, and more.
Morena Baccarin, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff are among the actresses appearing at the upcoming Sci-Fi Expo celebrating “Women of Sci-Fi” in Plano, Texas. The two-day event will be Jan. 29-30 in the Plano Convention Center, 2000 E. Spring Creek Parkway.CONTINUE READING >>
This week Larry Nemecek (or as we like to call him; Amazing Larry) posted a brand new video interview with Star Trek: DS9's Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko). Larry got the chance to sit down with Cirroc, at last year's Hollywood Xpo, and discuss what the younger Sisko has been up to since leaving the promenade. Apparently Cirroc has become a restaurateur and operates a small cafe aptly named "Cafe Cirroc" in Culver City, CA. Check an excerpt below.
And the honor of standing first in line in the backlog of videos waiting to be seen is none other than Cirroc "Jake Sisko" Lofton. He's no stranger to cons, but hardly over-exposed, either. So it was that we had a blast catching up at the heavily-guested but lightly-attended Hollywood Xpo last fall.
Most of all, check out the info on his latest project these days, Cafe Cirroc. I'll let him tell you the details, but for local SoCal-ers here's an update on special events at his community-oriented Italian fare eatery:CONTINUE READING >>
“Tea. Earl Gray. Hot.” As I’m sure many of you have, I’ve wanted to say that line to a cube shaped hole in the wall for the last 24 years or so. Now, we may be one step closer to getting our collective wish. What started as a project at Cornell University is currently being tested out at the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan, a 3D food printer.
OK, so it’s not a replicator like we’re used to seeing on Star Trek, but it does seem to indicate that the scientists are actively trying to get there. For now, this 3D food printer is quite a bit like the replicator technology NASA is working on only in food form. It builds the desired food out of multiple fine layers of said food in a paste form.CONTINUE READING >>
Star Trek: The Experience, oh how we long for thee. Going on two years now we've waited for your re-materialization, but alas it has yet to happen. For those of you out there that had the chance to visit The Experience, you know exactly what we're talking about. If not, imagine a place where everyone knows your name. No, not Cheers, but a place where being a Trek fan was whole heartedly embraced. That's exactly what ST:TE was like. It was home to the millions of Trek fans that crossed its threshold.CONTINUE READING >>
