Star Trek: Short Treks 2.2; “The Trouble With Edward” gets in a lot of tribble…

****SPOILERS!!**** The latest Star Trek: Short Trek has beamed down from CBS-All Access. “The Trouble With Edward” marks the fourth Star Trek story centered around writer David Gerrold’s famed creation, the tribbles (TOS’ “Trouble With Tribbles”, TAS’ “More Tribbles, More Troubles,” and DS9’s superlative “Trials and Tribble-ations”).

Star Trek: Short Treks, 2.1: “Q&A” offers a brief, but nice ride…

CBS-All Access has just launched its second series of “Star Trek: Short Treks.” Short Treks are a brief series of webisodes designed to keep CBS-AA from hemorrhaging subscribers before the debut of “Star Trek: Picard” and the third season premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery”; both arriving in early 2020.

The Star Trek family loses a beloved brother: Aron Eisenberg, 1969-2019.

Unlike other obituaries I’ve written for this site, I’m truly saddened to say this one is personal.

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….
