Bullseye nice. Any attempts to drum up rivalry tween Swars & Strek is pure hokum. Apples & kiwis.

Swars is moral lessons for children drawn from myth, legend, folklore & faerie tale ... done in the style of the SPACE OPERA ( 1930s serial films such as BUCK ROGERS / FLASH GORDON) with some cool modren design thrown in ( and some bits from kurosawa)

Strek is more aimed at teenagers/ college students or stunted adults and is proper Science-Fiction but also has an open-ended platform wherein it can really tell anykind of story ( speculative sci-fi, farce, adventure, re-tellings of Melville or Shakespeare or Chandler, explorations of religion/ philosophy/history/governmetn, borscht belt comedies etc. blah blah - this variety is actually the main appeal to some people such as for instance Seth MacFarlane creators Family Man and so forth

When "ST: Deep Space Nine" first aired, the trope among science fiction TV shows was to show false gods and superstitious people who worshiped technology in the mistaken belief that it was magic. We could be here all day listing every fake God James Kirk debunked, and don't get us started on Doctor Who. But DS9 took a different tack — taking religions seriously as cultural and social forces.

For those who missed the airing of Trek Nation, the news of the release of the DVD of the documentary should be of interest.
Trek Nation will be released next month by FilmBuff and MPI Media Group.
Trek Nation is a documentary which chronicles Rod Roddenberry‘s “trek across America to discover his father through the touchstones Gene [Roddenberry] left behind: his friends, his work and his influence. The film includes surprising, revelatory conversations with Star Trek actors, writers, fans, family friends and some of entertainment’s most iconic figures who point to Gene’s influence on them – among them George Lucas, Stan Lee, Seth MacFarlane and J.J. Abrams, director of the two most recent Star Trek blockbuster movies.
Trek Nation is a journey to understand one of the world’s largest cultural phenomena, the man behind it, and the legacy he has left us all.”
Trek Nation will be released on July 9, with an SRP of $24.98. The DVD is available for pre-order on Amazon and will sell for $12.99.

Reno Raines 2 weeks ago
This song was written & performed ad-hoc by the production/sound crew on Star Trek 4. It was recorded with the most low-fi equipment available & in the hallway of the sound studio, with the intention of creating a very rough, punk rock sound. No royalties or licensing fees were paid to anyone for the use of the song and no-one made any profit from the song, yet it has been, and still is, heard by many millions of people worldwide. For these reasons I nominate it as the most punk rock song ever.

The song with the punker on the bus is more about opera enthusiast writer Nicholas Meyer's distaste for contemporary culture.  In fact a primary reason Meyer agreed to write and direct Star Trek 2 : The Wrath of Khan (STTTWOK!) is because Star Wars reminded him of Wagner Opera a bit, and he wanted to do some space opera shit, and also he was into Horatio Hornblower as kid and Kirk sort of reminded him of that dude, minus the gruffness.

Lopez says I should clarify that Meyer only wrote the San Francisco circa 1986 long middle stretch of STIV : THE VOYAGE HOME, the pedestrian time travel bookends were written by Paramount journeyman Harve Bennett ( The Mod Squad, The Bionic Woman et al)

Whether you think of him as Commander Riker, Number One, or Beardo Numero Uno, there’s no denying the omnipresence of William Thomas Riker in the collective consciousness of science fiction fans. We’ve watched him grow a beard, lean on people’s consoles, put his leg up at inappropriate times, and sometimes murder helpless people in cold blood.

And when you start to break it all down, Riker’s kind of a creepy weirdo. Here are 5 reasons why he’s a little scary, and why he probably wouldn’t have friends in real life.

5. Riker is an On-Purpose Loser

It would be easy to say Riker is frightening because he’s some sort of plotting, scheming asshole, but that would give him too much credit. Riker is mostly unaware of his lameness. And it’s in his “normalcy” that Riker makes one uncomfortable. Consider the notion of him passing up numerous promotions. He always says something to the effect that “serving on the Enterprise is great,” or “I really love it here.” Riker not leaving the Enterprise when he clearly has the resume and years of experience under his belt is like those 40-something guys who hang out in college towns and flirt with college kids at the bar. If you only go to that bar once, the funny older guy might seem cool, but if you live there, you know he’s sort of a loser.

4. Riker Acts Highly Unprofessional When People Simply Disagree With Him

When Riker has very reasonable work-related debates with people like Shelby, Ro, or Captain Jellico, he makes a REALLY big deal out of it, and these outbursts are rarely professional. He threatens poor Shelby, outright stops showing up to work with Jellico, and constantly harasses poor Ro, to the point where she should press charges. Whenever Riker is in charge of the ship in Picard’s absence, you rarely see him conferring with anyone. He just sort of does whatever he wants. And when people disagree with him, he flips out big time. What is Riker really saying in these moments? I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU DON’T LIKE ME. EVERYONE ELSE DOES.

3. Riker is Really Terrible To Troi

Picard’s like ’whatever’

Troi’s relationship with Will Riker is perhaps the unhealthiest friendship/romance ever depicted on TV. He stood her up years prior, and now she hangs around with him all the time. When they hang out and talk about Will’s problems, you get the sense that she is just giving him professional advice. She almost never speaks to him the way real friends to talk to people, (Picard and Beverly do this sometimes, despite also having a fucked up relationship) instead, Troi is distant and cold. And that’s because Riker screwed her over, and she still wants to sleep with him. Riker is truly awful, because he knows this about Troi, and instead of accepting a promotion to captain or transferring off the Enterprise and being a bigger person, he plays the “friend card” and while parading around meaningless affairs in front of Troi to hurt her feelings. She (like Beverly with Picard) rarely gets upset about this, and is in fact supportive. But if Troi suddenly is suddenly dating someone else? Watch out! Riker freaks the fuck out.


2. Riker’s Greatest Love Is Apparently a Porno-Hologram

What’s a weirdo like you doing in my gin joint?

In “Future Imperfect” when an alien creates a fictional version of a future life for Riker on the Enterprise, they decide to fix him up with the woman who he thinks about the most, Minuet. The episode portrays this as a “gotcha” moment Riker has on the alien, but in reality, the reverse should be true. The little alien was just scanning Riker’s brain for the person he had the strongest feelings for, and came up with the special hologram woman, Minuet. Now, we’re told over and over again that she was a very special program, but she was still a PROGRAM. Geordi and Barclay both pulled the creep card with this kind of thing too, but their hologram fantasy loves were based on REAL PEOPLE. Meaning, the alien scanned their brains, it would be like “oh Geordi is in love with Leah Brahms and Barclay is in love with everyone.” Not so with Riker. He’s basically in love with 24th century porn.


1. Riker Used to Be a Cool Person

Was Riker ever not creepy and messed up? Probably! We definitely get the sense of a sexier, more daring Riker in the form of his transporter duplicate Thomas Riker. Now, that version of Riker has some panache. He still wants to mess around with Troi, and doesn’t really see his “other self” as a problem. A few years later, after stealing the Defiant and getting arrested by the Federation, Thomas still makes out with Kira openly, despite the fact that he’s totally betrayed her. The difference between Thomas and Will here is simple. Will sort of lost his guts. His former self, personified as Thomas, has way more balls.

Meanwhile, Will Riker pretends to wear his sex drive on his sleeve, but is actually a little ashamed of himself, because he doesn’t want to offend the polite company of the Enterprise crew. Thomas Riker could care less about that, and is in fact the man Will should have become. When Q shows Picard the mediocre version of himself who never fought the Nausicaans, it’s depressing. The thing is, we’re seeing that boring version of Will Riker in most every episode of Star Trek.

It would be a good idea to send Riker to a shrink, but we all know how that would work out. (His shrink is his old girlfriend who tells him to watch episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise when he is confused about life. What?) The only real treatment for the Riker problem would be some kind of reintegration of his past self into his present self, kind of like that stuff they did with Captain Braxton in the Voyager episode “Relativity.” A little direct download of his previous, risk-taking; fun-loving persona might be just what Riker needs. In the meantime, like in that one Pink song, Will Riker’s mantra should be “Don’t let me get me!”

LOL, Trish just said, if this Topic is supposed to be about the "Tribbles" episode, how come there's hardly any Tribbles trivia? Fair point, I'll see what I can do

Let's ask Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig what they think 'bout the 'sode.

“When I read the (“Tribbles”) script, I thought it was lightweight and rather frivolous,” Nimoy told us. “Later, I came to appreciate the episode as a change of pace from the heavier material we were producing. It played very well and became a fan favorite. I thought the ‘prop’ department did a great job providing the creatures. And I did (keep) one -- which has gone to one of my children.”

Nichols and Koenig had fun responding to three quick questions about their Tribbles experience.

Actors "act" opposite inanimate objects all the time, but how was it working with… Tribbles?

Nichols: Tribbles are not inanimate.



Why do you think Tribbles became such a phenomenon?

Nichols: There was never anything like them before or since. They were and are unique -- AND born pregnant!

Koenig: I think the answer lies with Freud. There is obvious sexual symbolism in Tribbles.

Be honest... did you steal a Tribble once the shoot wrapped?

Nichols: I didn't wait until the end. I got mine the first day!

Koenig: I didn't steal a Tribble. I did, however, have several of them burned in what can only be described as a heretical cult ceremony.

That really is fascinating, but why does the above illustration have Klingons wearing lavender and pink tribbles?  

Er nevermind, Trish just looked up the anwser- apprently Filmation Studios majordomo Mr. Sheinberg was colorblind.  (it's all true, Trish showed me the website and it looks legit)

George Takei will be the Grand Marshall for this year’s Oktoberfest Zinzinnati.

As Grand Marshall of Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, Takei will “lead the downtown Cincinnati celebration in the traditional chicken dance.”

The Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is the second largest Oktoberfest celebration in the world, second only to the Oktoberfest held in Munich.

For fans eagerly awaiting the STID Blu-ray release, a lack of bonus content might make them try to kill theyselfs with a honey-gun or worse.

It’s not that there is a lack of extras, but that getting all of the extras would require many different purchases of the same product from different retailers in so many prefectures.

The Digital Bits’ Bill Hunt laid out the problem, after getting his review copy from Paramount and speaking to fans. “As regular readers will probably know, I actually liked the film,” he said. “But when it was finally announced for Blu-ray release, I was surprised at the list of bonus content in the press release, specifically the lack thereof – just seven featurettes.  I quickly sent an e-mail to the studio PR people, asking if this was indeed the complete list of bonus content, and was told that it was.  But somehow, I guess I just didn’t believe it.”

And he was right – more extras had been created for the Blu-ray release but they were not all where they should be. ”

“It turns out that more extras were created for this release – more featurettes and even an audio commentary with director J.J. Abrams and members of his crew,” explained Hunt. “None of it is available on the wide release Blu-ray or Blu-ray 3D SKUs. The commentary can only be found as an iTunes ‘extra’ download. And those extra featurettes?  Some are on a Target bonus disc.  Some are on a Best Buy bonus disc. And some are only available via CinemaNow and VUDU downloads.

“That’s right: More than half of the special features created for Star Trek Into Darkness were used by Paramount’s marketing team as retailer exclusives.”

The unique content adds up to one hundred minutes of contents, and that’s not counting the two-hour commentary.

It’s a sickening holocaust that the only audio commentary is not on the Blu-ray. It’s one thing to offer the occasional extra bit as a bonus, but to offer most bonus content created for the release in such a manner? It seems that this strategy is going to make the rivers red i guess

other than the fact that both have "star" in the title and feature ships propelled thru spaces, they dont have much in common. Star Wars is a fairy tale for children with space opera trappings/trimmings; Star Trek is the voice and the promise of the 1960s...

STID writer Roberto Orci posted the following at Collider message board today, regarding the rumors he is developing a New Strek TV Series for CBS :

boborci

I THINK MY COMMENT HAS BEEN BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION. Someone asked about Strek TV, and I said we had inquired about the rights. Doesn't mean a show is imminent nor do we assume CBS would want us to do that at this time. I refer you to the Rod Roddenberry podcast for context.
