The Worf Of Starfleet Remixes Scorsese’s Latest

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 5, 2014 in Cinema, Star Trek

Worf

The Wolf of Wall Street may not have won anything at the Oscars this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t honor the movie in other ways. Grant Gourley has edited scenes from Star Trek: The Next Generation to create “The Worf of Starfleet,” and it looks surprisingly entertaining. The editing is the star here, bumping up the slow, deliberate tempo of TNG for an energetic trailer. And unlike usual, Worf comes across as smooth and almost witty, instead of his normal, kinda dorky self that haltingly discusses honor. I’d watch this movie! Read more…

Riker Meme

You probably know how to sit in a chair. I mean, at some point during your life, chances are good that you have sat down. But do you know how to do it and look totally amazing at the same time? I’m not just referring to sitting competently, but also being the coolest person in the room. If you’re unaware of the best way to sit, let Commander Riker show you the way. Read more…

Gag Reel from Star Trek: The Next Generation will Make Your Week

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 31, 2012 in Star Trek

tng

This came out a few weeks ago, but it’s finally making the rounds: a gag reel from Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s one of the most enjoyable and silly videos I’ve seen all month, and it’s the perfect way to start off the new year. What a blast to see the entire cast horsing around and having fun making the series. I also find it adorable that Patrick Stewart’s way to deal with corpsing is to hug whatever is closest to him – usually Jonathan Frakes. Watch the entire video below and start your week right!

Star Trek TNG in HD Out Now

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 25, 2012 in Star Trek

Star Trek TNG in HD Season 1 Blu-Ray

The first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation in HD should finally be available at store near you. My copy arrived earlier today, and I couldn’t wait to marathon a few of the discs. Of course, watching the first season of Star Trek the Next Generation can almost seem like a chore — the writing wasn’t incredible, the props and costumes needed some work, and the acting left plenty to be desired — so I had to pace myself. I was a bit worried that the experience would be much akin to chewing on a stick of Fruit Stripe gum — you know, ‘oos’ and ‘ahs’ for the first few minutes then suddenly ‘aww’. However, it actually isn’t that bad.

Save Big on Star Trek TNG in HD

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 4, 2012 in Star Trek

Star Trek The Next Generation Season one Blu-Ray HD

For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to see Star Trek: The Next Generation receive its much-needed facelift, and after picking up a copy of Star Trek: The Next Generation -The Next Level Blu-ray sampler earlier this year, I’ve become conflicted. Not because I don’t want them to finish remastering the series, but because I honestly loathed the first two seasons — at least, in comparison to the series as a whole, which I found brilliant. The writing was often sub-par, the acting absolutely atrocious at times, and the visuals (props, sets, costumes) — yikes, do we really need to see those in high definition? Read more…

TrekMovie Premieres TNG Webcomic

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 10, 2012 in Star Trek

The Outer Light preview image

If there had ever been an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that deserved a sequel, Morgan Gendel’s “The Inner Light” would be at the top of the list. Over the course of its seven seasons, we were treated to several such episodes, almost all of which served as a season finale. Instead, the studio felt single episodes would befit the series’ syndicated format. While it’s a shame we never had a chance to revisit any of our favorite plots while the series was airing, Gendel recently decided to pen a sequel to published online as a series of webcomics.

Entire Star Trek TNG Cast to Reunite at Calgary Expo

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jan 30, 2012 in Fandom, Star Trek

Star Trek The Next Generation Season 1 Cast

I know it’s a few months off, but Calgary Expo made a huge announcement yesterday. This April, the entire principal cast will be appearing at Calgary Expo in Alberta, Canada. It’s a bit of a huge deal for fans, as its been over two decades since the cast appeared together at such an event. I imagine the impending release of Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level, and the show’s 25th Anniversary might be the reason they’ve agreed to it.

Nevertheless, this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity for some of you, and if anyone is hoping to be attend from abroad, I suggest getting your passport in order as soon as possible. Depending on where you are, the approval process can be lengthy and its always better safe than sorry. For more information on the event, check out the Calgary Expo website. Star Trek: The Next Genertaion – The Next Level hits stores this week and for those of you who ordered your copy through Amazon, it should already be in the mail, so expect your packages as early as Monday or Tuesday.

Encounter at Farpoint HD Comparisons

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jan 11, 2012 in Star Trek

As many of you are already aware,  Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level is set for release later this month. The Blu-ray sampler includes three recently remastered HD episodes from the series, including the full feature length version of the series premiere “Encounter at Farpoint.” If you’re wondering what to expect, check out this sweet side-by-side comparison of the original and remastered version. The colors really pop, and you can tell they spent some time polishing those special effects. I’d like to believe the changes could make that entire first season bearable, but short of inventing a time machine and rewriting the scripts, its not likely. Nevertheless, they’ll also be including “Sins of the Father,” as well as the critically acclaimed “The Inner Light,” both of which are exponentially better both in terms of writing and pacing. The disc goes on sale January 31st, and will retail for just $21.99.
