I used to pop into this site so much more frequently than I have lately.. life has been way too busy and complex..
I was hoping to learn of events happening on the east coast, specifically the NY area. Anyone have info I could look into? Thanks!!
The main event I am hoping to get to is the convention next August.. but sadly I've already missed out on the ticket packages. Hoping more will be available. :(
I need help guys.
How would I go about finding out for sure if someone was either an extra or something in "Into Darkness?" The reason why I ask is because my former boss (a real piece of work) claimed that he was invited by JJ Abrams and the makeup artist invited him to audition for a part. At the time I asked him just what part of this had anything to do with "Star Trek" and he said he did not know.
Well, he then said his part was where they were crashing the Enterprise into San Francisco and he was all telling everyone about this and all, but then, when the movie came out and we saw it, no part. He said it 'conveniently' ended up on the cutting room floor. We all watched that spot carefully and his part wasn't in it. He swore up and down he saw himself in all the trailers but was never in any of the trailers I saw! Bottom line: I know he's lying but how do I go about finding out he did NOT do it?
Something tells me this never actually happened. Ex boss is a Johnny Depp impersonator. He supposedly was playing the great/great grandson of Johnny Depp and they were doing the Oscars or something in this scene. It ended up getting cut he said because it had about as much to do with "Star Trek" as everything else and it just did not fit. He was allegedly pretty mad at JJ Abrams for not telling him about this decision ahead of time as if they had each other on speed dial. Of course JJ Abrams didn't tell him anything: he's never met the man I would bet.
I think the guy is full of crap if you ask me because he also said even Zachary Quinto had to auditon for the role of Spock and that's not what I have heard due to interviews.
I guess I need some validation here that this guy is just full of it even though I know it. Surely there is someone who worked on the Trek movies on this site who would be able to answer my question?
If someone can feel free to message me on…Continue
Blasting through to the sixth and seventh seasons of Voyager it can be easy to overlook some of the elements that helped evolve the show in its final years.
One of the biggest additions to the ship was Icheb. Originally one of the Borg children discovered in Collective, he would be the only one of that small group of survivors to would remain on the ship and return with it to the Alpha Quadrant (whatever happened to the baby?!).
But actor/producer Manu Intiraymi's (pronounced Inter-aye-may) association with Star Trek doesn't end there and in the last couple of years he's even brought Icheb back for the independent film, Star Trek: Renegades.
"I'd just finished a film called Whatever it Takes," recalled Manu when he spoke to me from Los Angeles shortly before the widespread release of Renegades. "It was a teen comedy with James Franco, Aaron Paul, Shane West and Colin Hanks and then a couple of months later I got the call from my agent to go and read for a part…
As regular readers will know I've become a bit of a fan/obsessive over Attack Wing.
Which made Friday's announcement from Wizkids somewhat worrying. At least initially.
It appears that in February 2016 the game manufacturer will be delivering us Star Trek: Frontiers, offering a whole new spin on the franchise through roleplay and strategy. According to the promo material that landed this weekend, it will offer something new with players beaming away teams to planet surfaces and getting a different game each time.
Apparently it's going to be a bit of a spin on Mage Knight which is not a game I'm familiar with in any way so for myself it'll be a great, unexplored experience to dive into. I suspect for those people who have played that game it's not going to be a big deal. The Venture Tile System is the piece which will probably be key in making this stand out from Attack Wing and is the element borrowed from Mage Knight. This means that every game is constructed effectively…
It is my hope this finds you well. I have not attempted a blog here yet and thought I would start by inviting you all to an event we have organized, taking place in one week. We have the honor of hosting Michael Jan Friedman Saturday July 25th at 4pm, Tir na Nog 5 Penn Plz, New York, NY 10001.
This is an informal gathering where we will break bread with Mr. Friedman, discuss his Star Trek and numerous other literary works, and Mr. Friedman will have copies of his work for sale, which he will sign for us.
Our Comm channel for the USS Growler, our NYC Chapter of Fleet 31 An International Star Trek Fan Organization, has a a write up about the event here: http://uss-growler.com/2015/06/19/an-evening-with-michael-jan-friedman/
