About This Club

Everything Star Trek related

  1. What's new in this club
  2. With several series, dozens of seasons, and thousands of characters, the Star Trek franchise is as sprawling as the far-future worlds it explores. But few have captured the hearts and minds of Trek fans as much Jean-Luc Picard. As the Captain of the USS Enterprise-D, Picard wasn't as brash or boisterous as the franchise's forbearer, James Kirk. Instead, Picard, played by English legend Patrick Stewart, ruled his ship like a philosopher king, more comfortable debating the finer nuances of moral quandaries than socking a Gorn in the face. It's been nearly 17 years since the character last appeared on screen, in the much-maligned film Star Trek: Nemesis, so it's no wonder that fans were excited when CBS All-Access—and Patrick Stewart—announced last year that the character would be returning.
      Hello guest!
  3. I used to think that William Shatner was the biggest jerk & I still haven’t absolved him completely. But I am fast getting there. What has turned me is noting how he delights in self-parody. He knows that he is a wooden actor. He knows that he has, for whatever reason, gone far beyond his talent. He accepts it all as a happy “one of those things” and joins his critics in ridiculing himself. My wife and I saw him in a Colombo rerun, playing a media star villain. It was impossible for someone to deliberately ham it so poorly, he was doing it on purpose, making fun of himself. The kicker was a scene when his character passes by the most prominently displayed oversized painting in his mansion—a portrait of himself!
  4. Why do I feel like I REALLY missed out on living in a WONDERFUL decade of the 1960's? I would LOVE to ask William Shatner the story about this photograph and what the hell a Jupiter 8 is.... although it looks cool.
  5. Add this one to the long list of Star Trek Prophecies come true: Wouldn't this be very similar to their "impulse drive"? Smiling.
