Happy Birthday to our favorite ship's counselor Marina Sirtis. I wonder if she knew that we were going to say that... According to Memory Alpha, Marina was born this day in 1955 in the London Borough of Hackney to Greek parents who initially did not want her to pursue a career in acting. She trained at the Royal Shakespeare Company, affiliated with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, to which she had to apply in secret so her parents would not find out. Once she earned a name for herself in the theater, she went on to television. Having grown up in London, she became a huge soccer fan (her brother plays the sport in Greece), and a supporter of Tottenham Hotspur FC.CONTINUE READING >>
Since 1985 the self proclaimed future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk has held it's annual Trek Fest, drawing Star Trek fans worldwide.

According to an article on Press-Citizen.com, the Riverside City Council failed to pass a motion giving funds to the Riverside Area Community Club (RACC), the group responsible for Trek Fest.CONTINUE READING >>

We’d like to wish Leonard Nimoy a VERY Happy Birthday today, on this, his 80th year!! Happy Birthday Leonard, you’ve entertained and enlightened us, and we thank you!
Leonard Nimoy has been in a ton of films and TV shows. Trust me; looking through his IMDB page almost gave my scroll finger carpal tunnel. Although he wrote and narrated one of my favorite documentary series of all time, “In Search Of”, the role that we all hold dearest to our hearts is that lovable Vulcan, Spock.
Here’s some of our favorite moments with Spock. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

We’d like to wish William Shatner a VERY Happy Birthday, today on his 80th birthday!! Happy Birthday Bill, thanks for all the fun and laughs over the years!
Unless you’ve been in Rura Penthe for the last 100 years you would know that William Shatner has done it all. From actor to director to producer to writer, he has worn just about every hat in Hollywood a person could wear. However, it’s his acting that most of us remember. During his galaxy-sized career he has portrayed such memorable characters as Denny Crane, The Big Giant Head, Bob Wilson, T.J. Hooker and none other than our venerable, lovable, unforgettable…Captain James Tiberius Kirk.CONTINUE READING >>
So, okay, maybe we're not sharpest tools in the shed, but we just ran across a fantastic new (to us) podcast called Trek Radio. We say podcast, but it's actually a full-fledged internet radio station syndicating other Trek podcast, plus their own. Well, coming Saturday March 26th, Trek Radio is interviewing none other than Scott Bakula. That's right Enterprise fans, Captain Archer is going to rock out with his Spock out and talk nothing but Trek to the Trek Radio crew. This is something we're NOT going to miss and neither should you. Check out the details below.
Trek Radio is proud to announce a rare interview with Scott Bakula, the individual that took Star Trek from First Contact to the forming of the United Federation of Planets. As Captain of the lead exploration vessel the USS Enterprise, history was formed by the actions of the crew that really did take those first steps into where no one had gone before.CONTINUE READING >>
