Alexander Siddig has been hard at work on his latest movie project, a new film by Cairo Time writer-director Ruba Nadda called Inescapable. We first reported on the film back in 2011 when it was first announced. Also starring Marisa Tomei and Joshua Jackson, Inescapable's debut trailer has hit the net and it looks like a very interstesting premise especially with current world events.
There’s a new teaser trailer for “The Con of Wrath” which has only been seen by the eyes of those lucky enough to have been attending the San Diego Comic Con on July 14th. This new trailer contains some great, high quality footage of the much anticipated documentary…not to mention more snippets of the fabulous interviews it’s going to contain.
Our good friends over at The SciFi Diner Podcast recently wrapped their annual coverage of Shore Leave 34. If you don't know, Shore Leave is the largest fan run convention on the east coast and Scott & Miles have been covering the event for the past several years. They ended the convention with a bang by landing an interview with Star Trek: The Next Generation's LeVar Burton.
So we've officially returned to the land of the living... well sorta. Vegas Khhaaan! 2012 is in the rearview mirror and although we're sad to see it speed by, we do have some fond memories to look back upon. That's right kids, it's time for the Vegas Khhaaan! 2012 wrap-up. We had a blast, of course, and other than Darren from Trekcast getting shushed by a certain blind engineer and me getting randomly insulted by another certain android, the show went off without a hitch. Don't worry kids, we paid it back in-kind. Our alter ego Bye Bye, Robot had a fantastic show as well and we'll have some really cool product announcements in the following week or two. Those of you that made it to the show and hit up the BBR booth know exactly what I'm talking about.
In years past we've celebrated Gene Roddenberry's birthday with a special salute and a Youtube video round-up. We've often overlooked another Trek alum's birthday that just happens to share the same date as Gene, Star Trek: The Next Generation's Jonathan Frakes. What better way to celebrate this special day with a video of Jonathan candidly remembering Gene. Happy birthday to both Gene "The Great Bird of the Galaxy" Roddenberry and Jonathan "Two Takes" Frakes. By the way, you can find out how Jonathan earned that special nickname here.CONTINUE READING >>
We love Worf. Come on, who doesn’t? So it was a pleasure for us when we stumbled upon a recent LA Times interview with his human counterpart, Michael Dorn. They decided to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation by getting to know the man behind the mask. They discuss everything from the obvious makeup issues that he had to deal with all the way to his thoughts about the choice for TNG to have a very different kind of captain than Kirk.
After a brief break, William "The Shat" Shatner is back as the official spokesman for Priceline. Billed (no pun intended) as The Negotiator, Shatner is seen on a beach holding a surfboard and looking longingly out to sea in the new commercial. "You've been pretty busy for a dead man" says his TV spot co-star, with Bill finally running to the ocean with a quick "Sayonara, bra" shouted at the end.
A brand new podcast has hit the cyber "airwaves" recently and is set to examine every single episode of Star Trek. The best part about the new show is that it's a Roddenberry Entertainment production. Mission Log, hosted by DVD Geeks' John Champion and "Mac OS Ken" Ken Ray, will start with the TOS pilot "The Cage" and run all the way through the final episode of Enterprise.
