Commander Riker’s Jonathan Frakes’s house? How would you feel knowing that you could even live there? Well, it looks like somebody out there may get their wish. Jonathan Frakes has recently put his Beverly Hills house up for rent…for the tidy sum of $25,000 a month.

Hey Kids, looks like there's a Groupon deal that allows you to buy a single day pass to Creation Entertainment's Star Trek Las Vegas Convention at half off. You have the choice of any of the four days starting Thursday, August 8th for $17.50. Friday is also $17.50 with Saturday and Sunday for $20 each. The downside is that you can only get one day at the discounted rate. You have the option of buying two additional days as gifts. If you're going for just one day or you have a group of 4 buddies that can buy each other "gift" days, it could be a good deal (that may or may not work...your mileage may vary).

That's right, the ubiquitous "they" have announced that Star Trek Into Darkness will be released on Blu-ray on September 10th (2013) and the digital release even sooner on August 20th (2013).
I guess that means that we have the end of our summer planned out perfectly. We're gonna watch it over, and over, and over, and over, and...you get the idea.
How I picked this book
It started with the title. I don’t think anyone who has watched The Original Series can forget the moment in “Charlie X" when Uhura is singing in the rec room while accompanied by Spock on the Vulcan lyrette. Her voice and songs are a reminder of beauty in an environment built for functionality and protocol. Combined with the promise of cat-people1 I knew that this was the novel for me.CONTINUE READING >>
