Rumor Mill: Star Trek 3 Filming Location


A Middle East location may be used for filming part of Star Trek 3.
The location would be Dubai, set in the United Arab Emirates.
According to The National, several sources have claimed that the latest Trek movie will film there, towards the end of the year.
Shooting will “begin around November. We are told that non-disclosure agreements have already been signed with major local crew, and a significant part of the movie will be filmed here.”
Recently, the new Star Wars film shot scenes in the Abu Dhabi desert, southwest of Dubai.
William Shatner appeared recently at the Middle East Film & Comic Convention in Dubai.
As to be expected, there was no official confirmation of the plans to film in Dubai. The Dubai Film and TV Commission refused to comment on the matter.

Vulcan Pays Tribute To Nimoy

  Paying tribute to a legend 


“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”
Those words, immortalized in the digital realm on Twitter, were some of Leonard Nimoy’s final public words. Those words were embodied on Saturday in Vulcan as dozens of individuals, families and fans came to the Cultural Recreation Centre to pay tribute to the late actor.
Nimoy, best known for his role as Spock on Star Trek, died at the age of 83 after succumbing to his battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
People from all corners of the province came to Vulcan, Nimoy’s adopted home town and official Star Trek capital of Canada, to share their stories and eulogize the passing of an iconic pop culture figure and pay homage to a man many of them had never met.
Local officials and residents shared their personal stories of what it was like to have met Nimoy and the impact he had on their lives and in the community.
Mayor Tom Grant, who was also the mayor at the time of Nimoy’s visit to the town in 2010, was one of the speakers at the tribute.
“He was such a humbling man to visit with,” said Grant during an interview. “He had this ability to lower himself to our level and make you feel like you were one of them.”
All sharing stories during the Nimoy tribute were Devan Daniels, tourism administrator with the Vulcan and District Tourism Society, Shannon Clarke, assistant tourism administrator, Dayna Dickens, a former tourism co-ordinator who played an instrumental part in bringing Nimoy to Vulcan, Russell Skeet, Sun County radio personality, Shawn Webster, a local doctor, and Lyle Magnuson of the Vulcan and District Chamber of Commerce.
The story of how Nimoy made a visit to Vulcan started following the town’s failed 18-month campaign to hold the 2009 world premiere of the new Star Trek reboot.
After hearing of this defeat, Dickens picked up the phone at the Vulcan Tourism and Trek Station one day and the other end of the line was none other than Nimoy himself, inquiring about the failed attempt at holding the premiere.
While Nimoy wasn’t able to bring the world premiere to Vulcan, he was able to help persuade Paramount Pictures to invite 300 local residents to a sneak preview of the movie in Calgary.
Weeks later, the Vulcan Tourism and Trek Station received a call from a promoter for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo inquiring if there was interest in forming a partnership to bring Nimoy to Calgary for the expo, kicking it all off by bringing Nimoy to Vulcan.
The partnership was successful and, in April 2010, Nimoy did in fact come to town.
The actor was presented with a bronze bust in his likeness and an imprint of his hand giving his trademark Vulcan salute was taken. The bust, along with the imprint of his hand, are on display in the downtown.
“He made me feel like i was welcome, he made me feel like I was a friend,” said Grant, who toured Nimoy him around Vulcan. “No matter where he was he didn’t look down on anybody.”
A video, prepared by MDC Productions, chronicling the life and times of Nimoy, was shown after the speeches.
A stain glass portrait of Spock was presented to the Vulcan Tourism and Trek Station by Vulcan Town Coun. Rick Howard, who spent over three weeks perfecting it.
One of the tribute’s attendees was Ron Mussli, a 57-year-old Star Trek fan from Calgary who made the trip specifically for the memorial.
“I loved the event. I’ve been a Star Trek fan since my teens, so it’s been about 45 years at least,” said Mussli during an interview.
“I wanted to see the memorial for Nimoy because I found him to be an exceptional character in the original series. It just felt appropriate to come down and enjoy the atmosphere.”
Another attendee, former Vulcan resident Jeff Cummings, drove from Edmonton for the event, both in a professional and personal capacity.
Cummings, a self-proclaimed Trekkie, works for The Lung Association of Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
“We thought we should be here today. Leonard Nimoy has done so much with regards to raising awareness about COPD.”
COPD impacts 80,000 Albertans and it is the No. 1 reason for hospital visits across Canada, said Cummings.
“We were really heartbroken when he passed away because he did so much after being diagnosed with COPD to raise awareness and prevention,” said Cummings during an interview.
“We were really touched on a personal level and it really impacted us. One of my co-workers broke into tears when he heard of Nimoy’s passing. He was so talented and down to earth. To be here today to see just how much of an impact he has in the town of Vulcan is truly amazing.”

Frakes helps Fan Expo Regina boldly enter its second year

I don’t think anyone would try to argue that Jonathan Frakes wasn’t the highlight of Fan Expo Regina 2015.
Frakes, who played Commander William T. Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation, was a big get for a convention only in its second year. To have a main figurehead from the Star Trek franchise so soon is a good sign that Fan Expo Regina is headed in the right direction.
And to make it even better, Frakes seemed to enjoy the event as much as the fans. While making his way throughout the packed room on Sunday to interact and joke with audience members, Frakes captivated the crowd like no other celebrity I’ve seen at a convention before. It’s clear Frakes is experienced at it, and definitely loves doing it.
When asked about the possibility of a new Star Trek TV series, Frakes said he himself had pitched a concept to CBS, which owns the rights to the franchise. Unfortunately, CBS doesn’t seem to have any interest in a new Star Trek show, even if it’s being pitched by Commander Riker.
Frakes said CBS feels it diluted the Star Trek brand during the 90s and early 2000s, culminating with Star Trek: Nemesis, which was the first Star Trek film that didn’t make a profit. Now that the franchise has finally found success again with the rebooted films, he said CBS wants to keep the property as focused and concentrated as possible.
There were a few behind-the-scenes tidbits discussed too, such as how Riker came to have his beloved beard in season two of TNG. It turned out Frakes had grown it out during a writers strike. After Gene Roddenbery (Star Trek’s creator) saw the beard, he was adamant it become part of the character. Frakes even recalled a note sent down form a CBS executive asking that Riker have seven per cent less beard on one side of his face.
One fan was even bold enough to ask Frakes why, aside from financial reasons, he agreed to host the Fox prime time special Alien Autopsy in 1995.
“I think you just answered your own question,” was Frakes’ answer.
Another panel that was a treat for Reginans was Lawrence Gilliard, who played Bob Stookey on The Walking Dead and D’Angelo Barksdale on The Wire. Although only a few audience members raised their hands when the moderator asked how many fans of The Wire were present (shame on you, Regina), most of the questions were surprisingly about Barksdale.
Gilliard said he and his co-stars had no idea The Wire would be such a hit, and that he had the misfortune of purchasing a car just before being told his character would be written out of the show in season two. But he clearly looks back on the experience fondly.
Gilliard also revealed it was his first time doing a Q&A panel at a convention, and that he usually turned them down.
Fan Expo Regina is obviously limited when it comes to the type of celebrities it can draw because of the city’s size, but it’s definitely on the right path. And I can’t neglect to mention the fans themselves, who showed up with some amazing pieces of cosplay once again.

William Shatner Presents Chaos On The Bridge US Premiere

William Shatner Presents: Chaos on the Bridge makes its debut this week at the New York City International Film Festival.
Shatner will be at the event to promote his documentary.
In William Shatner Presents: Chaos on the Bridge, fans will get an “enlightening look” at the first two seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Shatner interviewed The Next Generation cast members such as Sir Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, and John de Lancie for the one-hour documentary. Others interviewed included John Pike, then president of Paramount Television; writers Maurice Hurley and D.C. Fontana; producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga; and other behind-the-scenes crewmembers.
All was not tranquil on the set, or behind the scenes. There were “egos, the infighting, the fan backlash…bluffs and threats,” and the cast was not certain that the series would survive.
William Shatner Presents: Chaos on the Bridge will be screened Friday, May 1 at 8 PM at the Directors Guild of America, 110 West 57 Street NY, NY. Tickets for the event cost $15, and for those wishing to attend a cocktail party with Shatner that begins at 6 PM, the cost will be $100.

Stephen Hawking: 9 claves que no sabías sobre él

Stephen Hawking: 9 claves que no sabías sobre él

Stephen Hawkings es una de las mentes más brillantes de nuestra época, ha aparecido en numerosos medios de comunicación y series de ficción. Es uno de los personajes más influyentes en el mundo y un icono de nuestra época. Pero aún hay cosas que desconocemos sobre su persona. Repasamos 9 historias sobre el científico que, quizás, desconozca

1. Stephen Hawkings y Galileo.

Stephen Hawkings nació el 8 de Enero de 1944, justo en el 300 aniversario de la muerte de Galileo, conocido como el padre de la Ciencia moderna.

2. Stephen Hawkings y los estudios.

Oficialmente Hawkings comenzó su educación en el Bayron House School, pero abandono el colegio al ser incapaz de aprender a leer y escribir. Con 9 años sus notas estaban entre las peores de su clase, y no por falta de inteligencia, si no por vaguería. Años más tarde, Hawkings comenzó a aplicarse en sus estudios, pero durante sus estudios primarios nunca logro obtener notas extraordinarias.

Stephen Hawking

3. Stephen Hawkings y Einstein.

Durante esa niñez plagada de notas mediocres, Hawkings ya mostraba un interés en cómo funcionan las cosas. El pequeño Stephen se dedicaba a desmontar relojes y radios, pero luego nunca era capaz de que volviesen a funcionar. No obstante, sus profesores y compañeros ya veían su curiosidad como síntoma de una gran mente y le pusieron el mote de Einstein.

4.  Stephen Hawkings y los remos.

Tras lograr entrar en la Universidad de Oxford, tras sacar una puntuación casi perfecta en su examen de Física, Hawkings se aburría por encontrar las materias demasiado sencillas. Decidió apuntarse al equipo de remo universitario pero, dada su complexión física, tenia la posición de timonel. Fue durante sus jornadas en el equipo de remo cuando los primeros síntomas de la esclerosis lateral amiotrófica comenzaron a aparecer.

5. Stephen Hawkings y Jane.

En la misma época en la que le diagnosticaron su enfermedad, su relación amorosa con una amiga de su hermana comenzó a florecer. Pese a la enfermedad, en octubre de 1964 se comprometieron. Juntos tendrían 3 hijos: Robert, Lucy y Timothy.

6. Stephen Hawkings y la muerte.

Tras ser diagnosticado con esclerosis lateral amiotrófica, el doctor que le trataba le dió una esperanza de vida de 2 años. En aquella época Hawkings tenía 21 años. Acaba de cumplir 73.

7. Stephen Hawkings y el francés.

La icónica voz de Hawkings proviene del DECTalk DTC01, que permite al científico comunicarse y que fue creada en 1986. Hace algunos años, Hawkings pensó en actualizar el equipo y pasar a una nueva máquina que le daría acento francés. Al final el científico decidió no hacerlo por miedo a que su mujer se divorciase de él (además, en una entrevista televisiva manifestó que le parecía más sexy el acento de su máquina actual).

8. Stephen Hawkings y Star Trek.

Stephen Hawkings fue una inspiración para Gene Roddenberry cuando creó la saga Star Trek y en 1993 el científico apareció en un capitulo de la serie. En el episodio, conocido como Descent, Hawkings juega una partida de cartas contra Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein y Data (personaje de la serie). Hawkings es la única persona en haberse interpretado a si mismo en Star Trek.

Stephen Hawking

9. Stephen Hawkings y el Nobel.

Pese a los numerosos premios que ha recibido durante su larga carrera científica, Hawkings no ha sido galardonado con el premio Nobel. Algunos apuntan a la dificultad de probar muchas de sus teorías como principal motivo de que no le hayan concedido este galardón.

Carel Struycken [Mr. Homn "Star Trek:The Next Generation"

He was born in The Hague, Netherlands, and grew up on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, where he composed a number of Caribbean waltzes. After returning to the Netherlands at age 16, he graduated from the directing program at the film school in Amsterdam, after which he spent a year at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, California. He was "discovered" on the corner of Hollywood and Vine by a lady who, upon seeing Struycken, abandoned her car in the middle of the street and called out to him that he was needed for a movie.
The film the woman was speaking of was the 1978 musical Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, in which Struycken was cast in the role of "The Brute." The film also featured actor and singer Keith Carradine, who, like Struycken, would later become affiliated with the Star Trek franchise. In addition, Star Trek: The Original Series set decorator Marvin March was the set decorator for this film.

 Struycken followed his film debut with roles in projects such as the 1980 comedy film Die Laughing with Larry Hankin and Scott DeVenney. In addition, before he ever appeared on Star Trek, Struycken became one of the few Trek alum to appear in a Star Wars production when he played the antagonist "King Terak" in the 1985 made-for-TV movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. Struycken followed this with a supporting role in the hit 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick and a co-starring role in an episode of Hunter with Rosemary Forsyth.

The Next Generation Years: 1987 - 1992


Struycken made his debut as Mr. Homn on Star Trek: The Next Generation in the first season episode "Haven", which aired the week of 28 November 1987. He also had his only line on the show in this episode, when he thanks Captain Picard for "the drinks."
Struycken reprised the role of Homn for four more episodes: "Manhunt", "Ménage à Troi", "Half a Life", and "Cost of Living". As the personal assistant to Ambassador Lwaxana Troi, Struycken always shared the screen with the late Majel Barrett-Roddenberry in each of his appearances. He filmed his scenes for the fourth season episode "Half a Life" on Monday 4 March 1991 on Paramount Stage 8 and 9. For his final appearance as Homn in "Cost of Living", he filmed his scenes between Tuesday 4 February 1992 and Thursday 6 February 1992, on Monday 10 February 1992, and on second unit on Friday 14 February 1992 on Paramount Stage 8 and 9.
In 1988, between his first and second appearance on TNG, Struycken appeared in an episode of the NBC medical drama St. Elsewhere. This series featured many Star Trek veterans in regular roles at the time, namely Ed Begley, Jr., Ronny Cox, Bruce Greenwood, Norman Lloyd, France Nuyen, and Jennifer Savidge. Struycken's episode also featured fellow TNG guest star Robert Costanzo.
Struycken had a recurring role as "The Giant" throughout the second season of David Lynch's cult television series Twin Peaks in 1990 and 1991, appearing with Mädchen Amick, Richard Beymer, and Ray Wise. Also in 1990, Struycken appeared along with Joel Swetow in the HBO movie Framed. He then had a supporting role in the horror film Servants of Twilight, which starred the aforementioned Bruce Greenwood.

Outside of Star Trek, Struycken is perhaps best known for his role as the tall, macabre butler "Lurch" in Paramount Pictures' hit 1991 film The Addams Family, based on the characters that appeared in the cult 1960s television series of the same name. Struycken reprised the role of Lurch for the 1993 sequel, Addams Family Values. In both films, he co-starred with Star Trek III actor Christopher Lloyd, who played the role of Uncle Fester.
While Struycken is famous for playing Lurch in the film version of The Addams Family, TOS guest actor Ted Cassidy (Ruk in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?") is famous for originating the role on the classic 1960s TV show.
Struycken was the only actor from the first two Addams Family films (with the exception of Christopher Hart's hand playing the role of Thing) to reprise his role in the 1998 direct-to-video sequel Addams Family Reunion. Struycken's co-stars in this film included the aforementioned Ed Begley, Jr. as well as Ray Walston, Leigh Taylor-Young, and Clint Howard.

Other projects

Struycken appeared as The Giant in the series "Twin Peaks" by David Lynch in 1990-1991. He co-starred with Voyager star Tim Russ and Star Trek: Insurrection actor F. Murray Abraham in the 1993 television version of Journey to the Center of the Earth. The following year, he made an appearance as a trader in the second season of the science fiction series Babylon 5, co-starring Andreas Katsulas, Bill Mumy, and Keith Szarabajka; the episode was written by Peter David.
Struycken played "Gaunt" in the Oblivion movies (Oblivion in 1994 and Oblivion II: Backlash in 1996). Also starring in these movies were Star Trek: The Original Series actor George Takei, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine guest actress Meg Foster, Original Series guest actress Julie Newmar (Eleen), Voyager guest actress Musetta Vander, and Deep Space Nine guest actor Jimmie F. Skaggs.
In addition, Struycken was one of the many Star Trek performers to appear in the 1995 TV movie Out There. The movie's stars were William O. Campbell and Wendy Schaal, which Leslie Bevis, Bill Cobbs, and Paul Dooley lent support and Robert Picardo made an uncredited cameo.
Struycken appeared in the 1995 film Under the Hula Moon with his Oblivion co-star and fellow Trek alum Musetta Vander. He also appeared as an alien in the 1997 science fiction blockbuster Men in Black. He was then part of the ensemble cast of 1998's I Woke Up Early the Day I Died, as were Ron Perlman, Lee Arenberg, and Mark Rolston. In 1999, he appeared in the action film Enemy Action along with Larry Hankin and Henry Darrow.
Since then, Struycken has worked with actor-director (and fellow TNG guest star) Jeff Rector on two movies: 2002's First Kiss and 2007's Revamped. Struycken also appeared in the 2001 direct-to-video film The Vampire Hunters Club with Daniel Roebuck and has guest-starred on the hit television series Charmed (with Tony Amendola and Aaron Lustig) and My Name Is Earl (directed by Marc Buckland). In addition, he has filmed a number of projects in his native Netherlands, including a recurring role on the TV series De Erfenis.

Ronald Reagan, Ted Cruz ... Mr. Spock?

Oregon lawmaker claims Vulcan native as part of the GOP

If Spock were to get involved in Terran politics, specifically in the United States, would he be a Democrat or a Republican?
Those who go by the late Leonard Nimoy might say Democrat, since the actor was a staunch member of the party. But one lawmaker in Oregon says Spock is actually someone who would've enjoyed the Grand Old Party.
State Rep. Bill Post told members of the Oregon legislature Friday that "today, the greatest Republican in the history of the galaxy — he was a legal alien who believed in prosperity — passed away."
Post then speaks of Nimoy by name, and then attempts to say some words in Vulcan.
The entire speech lasted less than 30 seconds, but is he accurate? Wendy Gittleson, a writer for Addicting Info, says no. In fact, she adds for Post to think that is completely illogical.
"Star Trek is pro-science and about a big government in search of a utopian society," Gittleson wrote. "Its themes were equality (although the original 'Star Trek' was sexist), and peace. There was no money on the Starship Enterprise. There were no rich or poor. All basic needs were provided for, including health care."
Even more, Spock always had a strong belief in how "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."
It seemed that Post was trying to be cute in terms of making mention about the passing of Nimoy, and is most likely a Trek fan. But if he really believes that Spock (or Nimoy) were Republican, he might have to guess again.

Star Trek's 10 Best Costumes

Much of the fun of Star Trek conventions comes from wandering around and seeing everyone in costumes. It's great to see so many folks in Federation uniforms, but I always delight in some of the more esoteric sartorial choices. Last summer in Las Vegas I saw a guy dressed as Kryton the Elasian security chief from “Elaan of Troyius” and nearly lost my mind.

There are literally hundreds of strange and silly costumes from the Star Trek Universe. I don't know if I could ever pick the best. Heck, I don't know if I could pick the best out of Deanna Troi's closet. Do I go with the classic, form-fitting purple number, or her ankle-length bust-enhancing turquoise dress? (Oh why oh why would I ever want to choose? Isn't Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations worth anything anymore?!) All I can say is that what follows are ten costumes that tickle me. Let's take a look back, have a laugh and then you can tell me all the ones I should have picked instead.

10) Ambassador T'Pel

What seems at first to be just a small part of “Data's Day” turns out to have the most interplanetary intrigue. (Sorry Chief O'Brien, your pre-wedding jitters with Keiko take something of a backseat.)
Check out what this less-than-warm-and-fuzzy Vulcan is wearing. A blue felt cone hat with a leather band and an upside-down triangle patch with an emblem . . .and that's just the beginning. There's all sorts of elaborate chin straps and material wrapped around and dangling from her neck, plus a necklace that looks, at first glance, like Darth Vader's chestplate. Is this degree of adornment logical?
 Absolutely not. Which is why it comes as no surprise at the end that T'Pel is actually a Romulan spy!

9) Enterprise Security from TMP-era.
This is a long way from a simple red shirt.
It wasn't just the Enterprise that was refit for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Most noticeable were the uniforms, doing away with the bright primary colors and going for more hushed earth tones. Then there were those odd buckles at the center of the one-piece jumpsuits or at the bottom of tunics. (If you dig deep you'll read that they were medical scanner/receivers called perscans.) Anyway, all of this pales compared to what the security teams were wearing at the time. The maroon rugby helmets with Starfleet insignias right at the center plus heavy leather vests with plastic casing are unlike anything else ever worn by crew-members of the Enterprise.


8) Dr. Crusher & Counselor Troi at the Gym
If it was just one of them, maybe it wouldn't be so infamous. But it's side-by-side, with Dr. Crusher in colors that make her look like Kermit the Frog and Counselor Troi in a contraption that probably doesn't offer her the, ah, support that she needs that really takes it. Although, I dunno … maybe gravity is different on a Galaxy-class ship?

7) EV Suits from “The Tholian Web

It was a mandate from NBC, then owned by RCA, who were trying to push new color sets: keep Star Trek bright! So even in the inky blackness of space (or caught in an inter-dimensional phase) it was important to have splashes of blue and red.

Then there's the headpiece. Not sure if they're drying laundry or beaming to a planet of beekeepers. All I know is that as a kid I thought this was the COOLEST thing I'd ever seen. (Okay, obviously I still think it's pretty cool.)

6) The Rank-and-File from Eminiar VII
Those of you who read One Trek Mind like one of Surak's pupils know I rarely miss an opportunity to mention “A Taste of Armageddon.” It isn't my favorite episode, but it's the one that really sold me on becoming a Trek fan. Anyway, you gotta love the costumes of the average citizen of Eminiar VII.

This really has everything – a turtleneck with a mesh sash, an insignia, a holster for a strange looking weapon and a kind of Cubist-looking toque. Who knows why they need their ears covered inside, but these are not exactly the most logical of people. (Keep in mind they have a tendency to incinerate themselves when computers tell them to.) Pound for pound this episode has some of the most far-out storytelling, and it is well matched by the production design. 
5) Anbo-Jyutsu Uniforms
The family that plays vaguely Japanese violent sports together stays together!
Will Riker and his father Kyle work out their differences by bowing at one another, then beating each other up with sticks. The costumes might resemble what Bob and Doug McKenzie wear in Strange Brew, but that only adds to the charm. While Parrises Squares was a more popular game, those uniforms (bright blue spandex?) didn't have half the swagger that the Anbo-Jyutsu ones had.

4) Wesley's Rainbow Sweater

Well, you knew this was coming. Poor Wesley. The Traveler compared him to Mozart and Picard still told him to shut up. I was the same age as Wesley was when I was watching (actually, he was a year or two older, maybe), so I'm not ashamed to say I connected with him. (But I wasn't quite so good at computers as he was - once we moved from programming in BASIC to Pascal I was pretty much lost.) Anyway, my mother bought me ugly-looking sweaters, too, so this vestiary embarrassment helped me get through a lot of rough afternoons.

3) Environmental Suit from “The Naked Time
If these suits didn't have detachable gloves, how many headaches would that have saved?
There aren't too many moments when Star Trek's sets and costumes get so cheesy that you laugh out loud. This show ain't Lost in Space. But even I, a fan to my last breath, has to admit that this looks flat-out ridiculous. And that's why I love it! Legend goes that the reason it looks so much like a shower curtain … is that it IS a shower curtain! Nice that the tops are flat, probably adds a little ventilation around the scalp.

2) I Am Not a Merry Man!
For all of Q's sins, we still owe him plenty of thanks. In “Qpid,” the omniscient being you love to hate sends Picard and company off to the Sherwood Forest, to save Vash (who, I've always suspected, thinks this whole thing is a scream.) Everybody gets a doofy costume, but it's Worf as Will Scarlet – enormous belt-buckle, gold buttons and white feather in his red cap – that brings the house down. Oh, Worf, don't pretend you don't like playing dress-up!

1) Picard's Dress Uniform
Season One of TNG, you were doing so many things. You dove headfirst into the plasma pool of Utopianism is ways that broadened the Original Series. For starters, it was “where no one has gone before.” This egalitarianism of the sexes was quite noticeable in the somewhat notorious “skant,” a half skirt, half jumpsuit that some women and, yes, some men chose to wear on the Enterprise. We never saw any bridge officers rockin' the full skant, but we did see Picard (and Riker) in this somewhat feminizing dress uniform. I mean, I guess it's a bit like a kilt, but it's also kinda like a dress. Not that it doesn't look nice! In fact, it always bugged me that we didn't see it more. I like the decorative element from pips to the neckline, especially.
Now, before you start screaming at me in the comments or on Facebook, keep in mind there were about fifteen ties for 11th place. But sometimes you have to make decisions. That's how we defeated the Dominion! (Oh, crap, there's absolutely nothing here from DS9, is there?) Anyway, now's your chance to sound off.

Pegg Writing Kickass Role For Elba

It’s not known yet what Idris Elba‘s role in Star Trek 3 will be, but Simon Pegg is hard at work writing it and promises a “kickass role” for the actor.
Pegg made his comments during an event promoting Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation.
Elba’s role will be an original character, promised Pegg. “Idris is an extraordinary actor and we’re trying to write him a kickass role,” he said. “This is the five year mission; we’re out there. We don’t need to keep bumping into the same five people. It’s a massive universe!”
Pegg didn’t say whether Elba would be playing a character from a familiar race or not, and he joked with the interviewer when asked if Elba would actually be in the movie. “I think so,” he said. “Honestly, I read these things on the Internet…as far as I know, that’s happening.”
More of Pegg’s Trek discussion can be found beginning at the halfway mark of the video below.

Vulcan Nimoy Tribute

The Town of Vulcan will pay tribute to Leonard Nimoy this weekend.
Although not named after Star Trek‘s Vulcan, the town gradually built its tourism industry on Star Trek.
“The Town, Tourism and our fans all figured that was a real good way to say goodbye to a man that was so good to our Town,” said Shannon Clarke, Vulcan Tourism‘s assistant administrator. “It’ll almost be the five year anniversary (since his visit). It was amazing. It really helped put Vulcan on the map that day and helped get us a license with CBS to be the Star Trek Capital of Canada as well.”
The mayor of Vulcan, Tom Grant, and former Vulcan Tourism Coordinator, Dayna Dickens, will be in attendance at the event, which takes place Saturday, April 25 at 2 PM at the Cultural Recreation Centre in Vulcan.
There will be a “special presentation,” and organizers of the memorial tribute will “show a video in Nimoy’s honor.”

Mulgrew On Voyager Twentieth Anniversary

Continuing her interview with StarTrek.com, Kate Mulgrew spoke about Voyager and Captain Kathryn Janeway.
For Mulgrew, it doesn’t seem like the show was twenty years ago. “I find that hard to believe because Janeway is always with me,” she said.
“She’s what people remember,” said Mulgrew. “he has been a great part of my life. It doesn’t feel like it was twenty years ago. It doesn’t at all. So I don’t know how to answer that, except to say it must be a tribute to the experience itself.”
Mulgrew loved the role of Janeway. “Janeway was a magnificent role,” she said. “It was a life-changing and certainly career-changing role that I played, and I played her with every particle of my being. So now, she is resting. She is blissfully resting, but I am always in gratitude to her. And she may be resurrected. You never know.”
Janeway was a role model to young women and Mulgrew is aware of that. “I [hear] that a lot,” she said. “I got that last night in Chicago. I got that in New York, at the launch of the book. I think much of that is connected to Janeway, and I’m grateful to Janeway for that and I’m very grateful to Rick Berman for that, for the opportunity to play her. And I’m most grateful of all to Genevieve Bujold, who had the wherewithal and the grace to step down and not leave the whole thing hanging.”
Would Mulgrew ever play Janeway again? “Yes, but only if I can do it with William Shatner and Patrick Stewart,” she said. “The captains have to get together.”

 Inside the Enterprise Studio Model 

As the Museum is assessing the 11-foot studio model of the Star Trek starship Enterprise, we’re trying to provide occasional updates to the many fans of this iconic artifact of American culture. The shooting model, which has been in the Museum’s collection since 1974, was removed from public display in September 2014 in order to be assessed and prepared for exhibit in the Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall, opening in July 2016. Right now, the Museum is completing a painstaking process of analyzing the model.Notably, conserving the Star Trek starship Enterprise studio model has allowed some wonderful cooperation between different branches of the Smithsonian institution. In December 2014 and again in January 2015, Tangara Cross of the National Zoological Park arranged for Marilyn Small and Peter Flowers, two National Zoo registered veterinary technicians (and Star Trek fans), to come to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia, to examine the model used in filming of the original Star Trek television series (1966–1969).

To give the Museum’s conservators a look inside the Enterprise model, Marilyn and Peter brought a portable radiography (x-ray) machine to the Emil Buehler Conservation Laboratory, which is a behind-the-scenes work space at the Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington Dulles International Airport. Consisting of three pieces, the apparatus has an x-ray emitter that exposes a special digital photographic plate, which in turn communicates with a computer enabled with its own independent WiFi. But what really made it special was that this technology has also been used to examine zoo animals, even panda sensation, Bao Bao. (Talk about breaking the Internet. Consider combining the web power of Bao Bao and Star Trek!)To organize the data, the radiology technicians/Star Trek fans first created a record for the “patient:”
ID: NCC-1701
Birthday: 1964
Sex: Other
Saucer as the “skull”
Secondary hull as the “body”
Nacelles as the “legs”
The x-ray apparatus produced images in a special format called “dicom” (which Peter explained, “makes a jpeg look like a pencil sketch”). To get each image, Peter and Marilyn worked with Engen Conservation Chair Malcolm Collum and Museum photographer Dane Penland to line up the radiography machine on one side of the artifact with the photographic plate positioned exactly opposite on the other side. They planned the overlapping images to provide a complete tricorder-like diagnostic of the model’s interior. As each image was shot, the digital plate communicated via WiFi with the laptop, capturing the image. To avoid a magnification effect, they positioned the plate as close to the body of the model as possible. They got the perfect exposure on the first try, based on Peter and Marilyn’s expert calculations comparing the probable density of the model versus the known density of biological specimens.
Working slowly, the participants planned the exposures to allow the images to be “stitched” together so conservators can get a more complete picture of the artifact. Our photographer, Dane, advised on how best to overlap the images so that they could be matched once the images had been taken back to a zoo computer to be processed. The composite image of the left nacelle shown here has been put back together by Museum conservator Ariel O’Connor. When printed at full size, it gives the conservators a clear map of the interior of the model, without disturbing any of the original structure. It’s worth noting how much the technology has improved since the last time the Enterprise model was x-rayed in the 1990s.

The x-ray process involved a lot of back and forth—literally. Marilyn, Peter, and Malcolm wore lead shielding to protect themselves during the x-ray shooting. For the rest of us, after backing away during each shot to avoid being unshielded inside the scatter range of the x-rays, we all rushed back to the monitor as the image appeared to see what was revealed. Immediately, we could see the light bulbs inside the model as well as finishing nails, electronics, and wiring. Some of the images were so clear that we could see the grain in the wood used to build the model! The results will help the conservation team to make clear decisions about next steps when assessing the structure of the model.

It deserves mention that the entire group showed tremendous restraint. The group held off on using any Star Trek puns or doing their Scotty impressions until well into the saucer section shooting. Hey, we take our work seriously but we’re fans too.

The Voyage Home: Earth Day Edition


Happy Earth Day, everyone. To celebrate, StarTrek.com thought we'd take a look back at the most pro-environmental Star Trek outing of them all: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. In a nutshell, the plot boiled down to this: save the whales, save the world. Man, in the future, has driven humpback whales to extinction and now, ironically, it would take the lyrical whale calls of George and Grace in 1986 to save the future. And so, with some sci-fi magic—the slingshot effect (a/k/a light-speed breakaway factor—Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise crew arrived in San Francisco and embarked on a fun, often funny, thought-provoking trek into our (then-) contemporary world.
At one point, Nimoy revealed in his commentary on the Star Trek IV DVD, the idea was floated of the Enterprise crew seeking... an extinct plant. Fascinating, sure, but not particularly dramatic. Whales provided genuine heft (literally and figuratively) and mystery and beauty.
Even now, nearly 30 years later, the film holds up well—and so too does its message. Really, the film had it all: a great Trek premise, drama, humor and plenty of action (whaling vessel harpoons bouncing off... sky!), not to mention George and Gracie and a story broad enough and contemporary enough to appeal to the non-Trek fans of the day. Leonard Nimoy directed with a light touch, with the notable exception of that quirky/cool sci-fi/time travel montage during the slingshot sequence, and, best of all, everyone in the supporting cast got his or her moment to shine. We also loved Leonard Roseman’s spot-on score, the superb, Oscar-nominated work of cinematographer Don Peterman, and the lovely performances by Mark Lenard and Jane Wyatt as Spock’s father and mother, respectively. Catherine Hicks added warmth, charm and fun to the proceedings as Dr. Gillian Taylor, though she and Shatner did not quite click on the romantic chemistry end of the equation. And, it was also sweet to see Majel Barrett and Grace Lee Whitney in the Trek fold once again.
Anyone old enough to remember the production of the film still speaks of the experience with awe in their voices. Nimoy lensed much of The Voyage Home on location, and that open-air feeling benefits the film. They shot on a real Navy ship, and there’s no mistaking that, either. There are near-legendary stories about securing the whale footage, and that footage was craftily edited into additional scenes realized with large animatronics and scale models. And then there were the San Francisco Bay scenes, with the Klingon Bird of Prey. Those were shot in the famous water tank—called B Tank, capable of holding 914,023 gallons of water—at Paramount Pictures. Nimoy, sporting Spock’s white robe, oversaw the proceedings as the cast stood astride the downed Bird of Prey, wind machines whipped water all around, lightning machines crackled and cameras rolled. At one point, James Doohan slipped and flopped into the water. Everyone on set got a chuckle out of it, including Doohan, who was unscathed. That particular take is not in the resulting scene in the movie, but check out the end-credits sequence that recaps the film. Nimoy—or maybe his film editor—slipped it in there.

"By the time we got to IV we were confident," the late writer-producer Harve Bennett told StarTrek.com in 2010. "Going back to the present (1986) created something that nothing else could have done, which is it presented Star Trek to a non-Trek audience. All you have to do is remember those scenes in the San Francisco streets. People didn’t relate to the characters as Star Trek stars, but kind of as another San Francisco crazy. I adore the lady reacting to Chekov when he asks her “Where can I find the nuclear wessels?” That whole scene presented Star Trek contemporaneously to people who’d never heard of it. That’s why it was the biggest hit and in many ways the most popular of the ones I did."

Again, happy Earth Day!

´Star Trek´ pierde una de sus leyendas: Tau Ceti no es habitable

El planeta, muy cercano y parecido a nuestro sistema, se cae de la lista de los mundos potencialmente habitables

Recreación de Tau Ceti, una de las leyendas de ´Star Trek´.
Recreación de Tau Ceti, una de las leyendas de ´Star Trek´. 
A medida que sigue la búsqueda de planetas que orbitan a la distancia adecuada de su estrella, una región denominada la zona habitable, el número de planetas que potencialmente puede tener vida crece.
En dos décadas hemos pasado de no tener planetas extrasolares a tener demasiados para buscar. La reducción de la lista de aspirantes exige examinar planetas extrasolares de un modo nuevo. Aplicando un enfoque que aúna astronomía y geofísica, investigadores de la Universidad Estatal de Arizona concluyen que de esa larga lista podemos tachar nuestro vecino cósmico Tau Ceti.
El sistema Tau Ceti, popularizado en varias obras de ficción, como 'Star Trek', ha sido utilizado en la ciencia ficción, e incluso noticias populares, como un lugar muy probable que tenga vida debido a su proximidad a la Tierra y características similares al Sol de la estrella.
Desde diciembre 2012 Tau Ceti se ha convertido en aún más atractivo, gracias a las pruebas de posiblemente cinco planetas en órbita, con dos de ellos - Tau Ceti e y f - que potencialmente residen en la zona habitable.
Analizando la composición química de Tau Ceti, el equipo de ASU modeló la evolución de la estrella y calculó su zona habitable. Aunque sus datos confirma que dos planetas (e y f) pueden estar en la zona habitable no significa que la vida florezca allí.
"El planeta e está en la zona habitable sólo si hacemos suposiciones muy generosas. El planeta f inicialmente parece más prometedor, pero el modelado de la evolución de la estrella hace que parezca probable que sólo se haya movido a la zona habitable recientemente ya que Tau Ceti se ha vuelto más luminosa a lo largo de su vida ", explica el astrofísico Michael Pagano, investigador postdoctoral de la Universidad de Arizona y autor principal del artículo que aparece en la revista Astrophysical Journal.
Sobre la base de los modelos del equipo, el planeta f lleva en la zona habitable mucho menos de mil millones de años. Esto suena como un largo tiempo, pero a la biosfera de la Tierra le tomó alrededor de 2.000 millones de años para producir cambios potencialmente detectables en su atmósfera. Un planeta que entró en la zona habitable hace sólo unos cientos de millones años seguramente puede ser habitable y habitado incluso, pero no tiene firmas biológicas detectables.
Según Pagano, él y sus colaboradores no eligieron Tau Ceti "esperando, deseando, o pensando que" sería un buen candidato para buscar vida, sino por la idea de que estos podrían ser nuevos mundos verdaderamente alienígenas.
Una composición inusual
Tau Ceti tiene una composición muy inusual con respecto a su relación de magnesio y silicio, que son dos de los más importantes minerales que forman la roca de la Tierra. La relación de magnesio a silicio en Tau Ceti es de 1.78, que es aproximadamente un 70% más que nuestro sol.
Los astrofísicos observaron los datos y se preguntaron: "¿Qué significa esto para los planetas?". Sobre la base de los puntos fuertes de la Escuela de Exploración Terrestre y Espacial de la ASU, que reúne a científicos de la tierra y el espacio, en un esfuerzo para hacer frente a las preguntas de investigación a través de un enfoque holístico, el físico mineral Sang-Heon Shim proporcionó ideas sobre la posible naturaleza de esos planetas.
"Con una relación de magnesio y silicio tan alta, es posible que el maquillaje mineralógico de los planetas alrededor de Tau Ceti podría ser significativamente diferente de la Tierra. Esos planetas podrían muy bien estar dominados por el mineral olivino en partes poco profundas del manto y mantos inferiores dominados por ferropericlasa", explica.
Teniendo en cuenta que la ferropericlasa es mucho menos viscosa, o resistente a fluir, el caliente pero sólido manto de roca podría fluir más fácilmente, posiblemente tener efectos profundos sobre el vulcanismo y la tectónica en la superficie planetaria, procesos que tienen un impacto significativo sobre la habitabilidad de la Tierra.
"Este es un recordatorio de que los procesos geológicos son fundamentales en la comprensión de las condiciones de habitabilidad de los planetas", añade Shim.
"Tau Ceti ha sido un destino popular para los escritores de ciencia ficción y la imaginación de todos como un lugar con vida, pero a pesar de que la vida en torno a Tau Ceti puede ser poco probable, no debe ser visto como una decepción, sino que debe vigorizar nuestras mentes a considerar qué planetas exóticos probablemente orbitan las estrellas, y nuevas e inusuales planetas que puedan existir en este vasto universo", dice Pagano.
