Recurring Characters Give Star Trek: The Next Generation A Leg Up
Photo by Archman8 One of the many area in which Star Trek: The Next Generation was superior to the Original Series was the introduction of recurring characters. They provided a welcome change up from the typical infallibility of the main characters and returned a much more human component to the drama.
Star Trek’s Mr. Data May Never Feel But His Artificial Intelligence Definitely Makes Us Think
Photo by Gage Skidmore Robby the Robot from 1956’s Forbidden Planet may have been the first artificial intelligence movie robot to have his say. But the evolution of thinking androids in science fiction movies have come a long way – even if the limits that are tested go long beyond what I believe is possible.
JJ Abrams Didn’t Make The Voyage Home but he Followed a Similar Script
Studio ; Paramount, Poster Star Trek IV is probably the TOS film that has the most crossover between Trekkies and the rest of the popular culture. The success of The Voyage Home also probably paved the way for The Next Generation, and the save the whales premise, gave us something to hang our science fiction hats on. Even so, doesn’t the science fiction get overshadowed by all the action. Enjoyable for sure, but it's almost like a guy named JJ Abrams was responsible.
Chris Pine Hopes To Play Kirk In Tarantino’s Star Trek
Actor Chris Pine might return in Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek as Captain Kirk. William Shatner originally played the character in the 1960’s series of the franchise.
Trek's Hottest: Crusher Vs. Troi
Hi, and welcome back to The Great Debates where I settle pop culture's biggest scores. Guys, ready the wolf whistles! Even though Deep Space Nine will always be my favorite show in the Star Trek franchise, The Next Generation still holds a lot of appeal. Picard (Patrick Stewart) became a legendary Captain to match Kirk (William Shatner); Data (Brent Spiner) and Geordi (LeVar Burton) still are two of TV's most lovable geeks; and the Borg are still one of the most frightening and popular alien races in sci-fi history. However, as I was in adolescence during the show's original run, naturally my attention turned to ladies, and The Next Generation had two of the most appealing women in the whole franchise. Those were the ship's doctor Beverly Crusher, played by the amazing (and amazingly talented) Gates McFadden, and the ship's counselor Deanna Troi, played by the scintillating and fiery Marina Sirtis. While the rest of the franchise had no shortage of appealing ladies [in fact, my personal favorite is Kira Nerys (Nana Visitor) from DS9], Beverly and Deanna stick out in a lot of young minds from the time to the point that they get debated almost as much as Kirk and Picard.

EXCLUSIVE: Chad Rubel Reveals How Star Trek: Discovery’s Editing Team Made Working from Home Look Easy
A couple-three things. First,I have to start off with a tremendous thank you to Chad Rubel and CBS for authorising this interview. Second, there’s an adorable little anecdote no one asked for that I’m gonna add in here just so that I never forget it.
Marla McGivers Missions
Historians log, first entry, Halloween 2020. I have shed my diurnal dramatis persona for that of Lieutenant Marla McGivers, a fictional character from the man made Star Trek Universe, someone once described as "a superior woman". Like McGivers, I am of the opinion that modern men do not live up to the heroes of the past, so I pluck her from her natural timeline, and resuscitate her 300 years in the past... 1967 to be exact.
On September 8th, 1966, Star Trek premiered originally produced from September 1966 to December 1967 by a company called Norway Productions and Desilu Productions. Then Paramount took over from January 1968 to June 1969, airing on NBC. Star Trek became a franchise, made up of 8 series', 13 feature films, also spawning games, books and toys. Star Trek was controversial when it premiered back then because of the diversity of the crew. Star Trek's number one strength is featuring all the diversity they have on the show, since it is about people who are different from each other working towards a common goal, that of exploring space, while keeping each other safe and taking care of each other.
My Review of "Star Trek: Lower Decks: Season One"
Star Trek: Lower Decks: Season One is a Star Trek series that you wouldn't expect to be a Star Trek series. First off it doesn't even look anything like what you would expect a Star Trek series to look like. It's completely animated and it's animated as a comedy animation. There's not a lot of episodes and each episode is only half an hour long. I don't know how they packed so much into these episodes while keeping them entertaining.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture Searches for the Original Series and Finds It
I was so into Star Trek as a kid – and the tragedy of lasting only 79 episodes – that I used to dream my own original episodes in REM sleep. Always awakened to the disappointment that the nocturnal adventure didn't really exist, it’s still unfathomable to me that when Star Trek : The Motion Picture came out, I didn’t go see it the first Star Trek Movie
