A galaxy sized portion of Star Trek news.
Apparently CBS/Viacom/Paramount had some Trek event, triple masked no doubt. First Contact Day they are calling it, is this new? Anyway, I thought I'd lasso all the news up in one place. Let's boldly get right to it.
A lot of old school knuckle draggers say Star Trek Discovery is gay, hell I've probably said it once or twice. Well, Disco as it is affectionately known has won an award from GLAAD for best drama, seriously congrats guys...them or whatever.
Multiple sources are reporting a new Star Trek feature film is in the works. After all the previous announcements with various people attached, including even Quentin Tarantino at one point, I'll believe it when I see the trailer. We don't know tribble shit about it other than the release date of June 9th, 2023...fucking useful.
News for Boomers and Gen-X, a.k.a. fans of real Star Trek. A beloved character from the Braga/Berman 'verse returns to be a thorn in Picard's life. Yes John De Lancie has signed on for Picard season two. All we know is Patrick Stewart has teased people with "shattering event".
Answer to the question no one is asking. Yes, Zach Quinto is interested in doing a Spock TV show. Yeah, he'll do another movie too.
A few yahrens ago Kate Mulgrew had an attitude adjustment about her years doing Star Trek. Now cool with being associated with Janeway, since Orange Is The New Black ran it's course, Mulgrew is back as Janeway. In animated form. Kate Mulgrew will do the voice work on the animated children series Star Trek: Prodigy. Captain Janeway will be a training hologram. We get our first look here.
SyFy Wire is ga-ga over some artifact in the Picard Sesaon 2 teaser tariler pointing to a possible return of Avery Brooks as Benjamin Sisko. DS9 was a lot of years and booze ago so the details on this tablet artifact escape. More Ben Sisko is cool with me.
While SyFy Wire claims Avery Brooks has retired from acting. Cirroc Lofton who played Jake Sisko said otherwise last December. "Avery has not retired as an actor and would return to acting if offered a role, he has been blacklisted from Hollywood and is without any agent or agency".
SNL did a Star Trek skit featuring some Gen-Z woke crew members, it was mostly meh. Search YouTube if you must.
Star Trek: DISCO dropped a season 4 first look trailer. Captain Burnham and crew are wearing snazzy new uniforms and "facing something that can tear us all apart, we'll face it together yadda-yadda". Watch the trailer here after a couple of online casino commercials.
Saving the best for last Star Trek: Lower Decks, which has really grown on me, returns August 12th. You can catch a trailer here.
