“What We Left Behind: Looking Back At Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”…

Last night, May 13th, was the one-night only showing (at TCL’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood or AMC’s Fathom Events) of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary “What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” (2018), co-directed by former DS9 writer/producer/show-runner Ira Steven Beher and David Zappone.

Star Trek III: 35 years of “The Search For Spock”…

The end of my high school junior year (June of 1984), a question long simmering in my Star Trek-obsessed brain was about to be answered; will the late Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) come back from the dead in the new Star Trek movie? Of course, even at 17 I knew the obvious answer was yes….

Young…

Star Trek: Discovery S2.10, “The Red Angel” revealed… *SPOILERS!*

I put *SPOILER* warnings in the headline of this entry as well, because this episode is just one big reveal after another. “The Red Angel” was written by Anthony Maranville and Chris Silvestri, was directed by Hanelle L.
