Journey and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate composer Austin Wintory shared a really cool story about auditioning to write the music for Star Trek: Discovery. He didn’t get the gig, but he wrote a lot of great music along the way. It’s an interesting look behind the scenes at what it’s like to try to land a high-profile…
Star Trek’s Mirror Universe is one of—hell, the—most famous parallel universes in science fiction history. In fact, it almost has a timeline of its own as rich as the prime reality of Trek itself. So if you’ve been confused by all the Mirror-verse happenings in Discovery—and why wouldn’t you be?—we’re here to help…
The visual style of the Borg in Star Trek—with its protruding cables, dark metals, and monolithic sameness—is unmistakable, and has become, since the collective’s introduction in Star Trek: The Next Generation, iconic science fiction. They’re cool villains, and now you can merge your own technological uniqueness with…
When you think about the early days of virtual reality, you either think of the movie The Lawnmower Man, or that episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where the crew gets addicted to an augmented reality game that almost kills everyone. Which, by the way, you can now play on Microsoft’s HoloLens AR headset.
Quantum Mechanix is releasing a line of big fancy action figures based on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the first one is Picard.
The fifth episode of Star Trek: Discovery ventured into old territory and new, pairing the return of classic Trek character Harry Mudd (really just known as Mudd, and played here by Rainn Wilson) with a couple of firsts for the franchise. As promised, there was the sweet reveal of Discovery couple Stamets (Anthony…
Hey, did you hear there’s a new Star Trek show starting September 24?

If you’ve enjoyed the new Star Trek movies, and want to catch up on the show that inspired them, you can beam up the complete original series Blu-ray box set for $50, the best price we’ve seen since January. This should sell out quickly, so I’d head over to Amazon at warp factor 7 to grab your copy.
Details on Star Trek: Discovery have been fairly scarce—we’ve got a few good general ideas, but nothing specific. That’s changed now, because a bevy of props and images are currently on display at San Diego Comic-Con, and while Starfleet is always Starfleet, the Klingons are stealing the show.
If you thought Paradox’s grand strategy game Stellaris sounded very Star Trekky with its big alien alliances and deep space exploration, you are not alone.

If you’ve enjoyed the new Star Trek movies, and want to catch up on the show that inspired them, you can beam up the complete original series Blu-ray box set for $40, an all-time low. This should sell out quickly, so I’d head over to Amazon at warp factor 7 to grab your copy.
It was a project eight years in the making—well, technically nine now. One LEGO fan has built his own Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey using about 25,000 blocks, based on a virtual blueprint he started all the way back in 2008.
Some cosplayers just want to see the world burn.

In a season five episode Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Enterprise crew falls under the spell of a dangerously addictive augmented reality game. That same game lies buried within mobile game Star Trek: Timelines, an easter egg so well-hidden only one player has uncovered it, and they don’t even know it yet.
On September 8, Star Trek turned 45 years old. Happy Birthday, Star Trek! Even though I hate you and your cheap-ass sets and lame vision of the future and hammy plots and silly aliens and...
It’s one of the most recognizable props in pop culture history, so it’s only fitting that the Smithsonian recently spent almost two years restoring the USS Enterprise model used in the original Star Trek TV series. The paint work alone was a painstaking process, as detailed in this new behind-the-scenes look at the…
CBS merely announced the name of the upcoming Star Trek TV series, and gave us the briefest glimpse of its titular ship, the Discovery. What could it possibly reveal about the show?
