Star Trek: TNG
Wil Wheaton has been in the news quite a bit lately, from his fantastic "Memories of the Future" to his Star Trek XI voice over work. Now, young Wesley is returning as an alter ego version of himself (and Sheldon's nemesis) in the CBS hit comedy "TheBig Bang Theory".
Our favorite bearded first officer is busting out his bull horn again and is directing a brand new episode of the scifi series "V". Frakes, who has become quite the director over the years, is set to direct episode 1.06 of the series. The episode is actually in production as we speak. Starting Tuesday the 16th and scheduled to conclude on the 25th, the episode introduces a new character named John May.
Patrick Stewart, or Sir Patrick if you will, is slowly getting used to his title. "It's beginning to feel, day by day, a little more comfortable." He explains, "But tonight to hear my name linked like that with Sir Ian McKellen was perhaps so far the highlight of this event."
Sir Patrick was in London for the Whatsonstage.com theatre awards where he picked up 2 honors. One for supporting actor as Claudius in "Hamlet and the other he shared with fellow actor and Knight of Relm Sir Ian McKellen for "Waiting For Godot".
Every year about this time Mac users flock to their version of Mecca known as Macworld. Up until a few years ago, this was a huge event for Apple to release new products and Steve Jobs to speak at the "Feature Presentation", otherwise known as a keynote. Since Apple's Macworld departure,New York Times personal technology columnist David Pogue was responsible for said feature.
Wil Wheaton, geek blogger extraordinaire (or as we like to call him, our little Wesley), is set to present the keynote speech for this year's Penny Arcade Expo: East in Boston Massachusetts. The three day event is scheduled for March 26th-28th. This isn't the first time Wheaton has presented at PAX, in 2007 he made his famous "Don't be a D*ck" speech that was become an internet meme unto itself. You can check out Wil's 2007 speech here.
A brand new documentary is set to hit the ariwaves at PBS this month.

And, it includes narration by Avery Brooks plus dramatic readings by LeVar Burton.
If your here reading this article, more than likely your a Star Trek fan and you probably no that we are too. We love pretty much everything that's available from our favorite sci-fi series, right down to the funny and sometimes just interesting bloopers that happen on set

Star Trek: TOS Bloopers (apparently there were lots of door problems in the 60s)
We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile. That statement alone is enough to give any space ferrying, warp capable civilization a case of the interstellar runs. We as the audience though, love every second of the space zombie madness.
Patrick Stewart is set to play in two Shakespeare productions this spring for PBS. He's playing Claudius in Hamlet opposite Dr. Who star David Tennant and then a filmed version of the recent modern-dress broadway rendition of Macbeth. This version of Macbeth will see the Scottish King exchanged for a modern day dictator.
"Great works of art endure, and the reason it endures is that it seems to have fresh source of meaning for each generation that comes along," says Stewart. "This is my 52nd year of doing this professionally, and all I wanted to do was act in Shakespeare. And for years, that's all I did. Then, other things happened."
