We just got back from Vegas Khhaaan! 2011 and are starting to get back into the swing of things. In the meantime, our good friends over at The SciFi Diner Podcast just released a new episode with a fantastic interview featuring the original Dr. Elizabeth Dehner, Sally Kellerman. Many of you know Sally as Dr. Dehner from the TOS episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before" plus her role as Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan in the motion picture version of M*A*S*H. Scott & Miles got a chance to sit down with Sally during Shore Leave 33 and spent some time talking about both Star Trek & M*A*S*H.CONTINUE READING >>
Vegas Khhaaan! is upon us once again and we're as excited as a bunch of tribbles in a quadrotriticale silo. We've been thinking about Creation Entertainment's Las Vegas Star Trek convention since last year's amazing Khhaaan! tour de force. If you're curious about the Trek guest list, you can check out our previous articles (here & here) with the current list. One side note, Subspace Communique favorite Natalia Nogulich won't be in attendance. She's in New York working on David Mamet's new biopic (about Phil Spector) for HBO starring Al Paccino & Dame Helen Mirren. We're sad she won't be there, but dang, what an awesome gig! Recently, Creation released the full schedule for the convention and we've posted it here for your Khhaaan! pleasure. Check out the details below. Oh, and, it's a long post. You've been warned!
Star Trek: The Re-Experience. Commander Tahryn Is Drawn Back To The 21st Century... And She's Not Happy.
If you've been to this site before, you know that we bemoan the closing of Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton. Like so many of you, we pine for the day of it's return. In the meantime, it seems a certain Andorian has been brought back through the wormhole to 21st century Las Vegas. Well, the suburbs of Vegas and she's not thrilled about it. Star Trek: The Experience actor, and friend of Subspace Communique, April Hebert reprises her role as the vivacious and ultimately annoyed Commander Tahryn in this special video produced by fellow Star Trek: Experience actor and unofficial historian Vernon Wilmer.
According to the Star Trek: My Experience Facebook fan page; In this special video made just for the 2011 convention, Commander Tahryn is dragged back through the temporal rift by curious fans at a homemade "Star Trek The Experience" shrine and quizzed on the whereabouts of her alien colleagues. She's back, and she's pissed! Watch out pinkskins...CONTINUE READING >>
The rumor-mill seems to think so. We've been waiting for this since we first got wind of The Original Series being remastered and released in high-def. Since Next Gen was originally shot on film and post production's output for the final episodes were on video, the special effects throughout the series would need to be remastered before the show could ever make it to blu-ray. According to The Digital Bits secret stash of comic-con sources, CBS is indeed working on a remastered version of the series, with a 4 episode demo disc that might be available to fans soon.CONTINUE READING >>
We would like to wish a very happy birthday to Mike Okuda. He has been responsible for a myriad of things throughout the various Trek incarnations since the mid-1980s starting with Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Mike gained notoriety for his work on Star Trek: The Next Generation as a scenic artist / technical consultant and for designing the futuristic graphical user interface (LCARS or Okudagrams) used throughout the TNG era and all the way to DS9. I would also like to personally thank Mike and give him credit for inspiring me to work professionally in the graphic arts and user interface design. Thanks Mike, your work has inspired an entire generation of graphics professionals!CONTINUE READING >>
