      We do need a new TNG – and many of the points here are valid . I gave up on Voyager soon after it began when it became obvious that it would be the same old thing (not very alien aliens, just new hairstyles and nose ridges).

    Wrath of Khan is a rehash of the Moby Dick story and it's not the first science fiction movie to borrow from other genres. http://t.co/XQjeQZuUZX

    I've long thought that Star Trek needed to return to TV as an anthology series. Someone else agrees with me. http://t.co/TJEwFs21gw

    For some fans, stabilizing those shaky scenes from Star Trek explosions and collisions is a continuing mission. http://t.co/iOkrx9ZNTX

      I don’t get it. What’s the big deal about some shaky scenes? I do like their website that has it’s own shaky effect for the first few seconds. Now that’s cool!

      • Capt. Xerox 1:18 pm on June 6, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        The gimmick is they are stablizing the scenes so you don’t see the camera shaking and are left shots of actors jumping around and falling down.

    The number of Star Trek novels is staggering. This flow chart attempts to make sense of it with a reading order: http://t.co/N6A6J44Jg4

      I don’t know much about ST novels But I think this is only a slice of all the ST novels out there as there isn’t even one book with the word “Vulcan” in it. If nothing else, the late Josepha Sherman burned “Vulcan’s Forge” into my brain.
      I remember when there were NO ST novels at all, and we only had the James Blish episode adapted stories. I even remember when Alan Dean Foster started writing the “Log” books as they were the first fresh and new stories after the show was cancelled. As much as I loved reading the Blish and Foster books, I was never tempted to read any of the other novels.

        There are supposedly more than 400 Trek novels: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Trek_novels.

        That’s a lot of reading material. That probably even outnumbers the amount of Star Wars novels out there.

        I can only remember reading one Star Trek novel, The Lost Years, which attempts to bridge the gap between the original series and the first motion picture. While looking over that Wikipedia page, I saw that it was actually book one in a “cycle” of four books. Sigh.

        Actually, as I look at the various series available, there look to be some interesting premises in the Trek written universe. With the lack of any new Star Trek stories, the Abrams movies notwithstanding, it It makes me wonder if any of them are actually worth reading

          Two interesting things I noticed on the Wiki.
          I just learned that the “Log” books were in fact adaptations of the animated series episodes. (I still have never gotten around to watching these.)
          Perusing the book list I was reminded that I do in fact have one of the novels on my shelves, Haldeman’s “World Without End”.
          I also now recall (confess?) that I was given a hardback of the TNG “First Contact” adapted novel as an x-mas gift one year and did read that.

    I’m not sure what possessed a councilman in a North Carolina town to pen his resignation letter in Klingon, but he did.

    The mayor’s response? “Live long and prosper.”

    The New York Daily Times has the letter, in the original Klingon, and more details at http://ow.ly/sfRLQ.
