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.CONTINUE READING >>
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."

Why not start of the new year with a terrible interview featuring Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, and Brent Spiner from 1996. Thanks to the fine folks at Cinematical, they dug up this uncomfortable video clip hosted by two rather annoying interviews that hopefully aren't in the business any longer. Check out the annoyed looks on Brent's face around 4:56. By the way, this was a part of the "First Contact" promotional tour and was originally aired on MTV UK.CONTINUE READING >>

Brian Bonsall, famous for playing Alexander Rozhenko in TNG and Andy Keaton In Family Ties, was arrested over the weekend on a felony assault charge. All jokes aside, it's pretty sad when a former child star runs into trouble with drug / alcohol / legal problems. If convicted Brian could face a good deal of time in jail. Check out more details in the article excerpt below.
Colorado Daily reports that the 28-year-old is currently facing third-degree assault charges for hitting his friend in the face with a bar stool. It's not just that, he's actually been wanted by the cops for years. Brian Bonsall has already skipped a court hearing in July 2008, further damaging his case.
