“Star Trek: The Next Generation” on TV looks like what it is — a sci-fi show from the ’80s. Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with that. I personally dig that about it. But from the looks of this Blu-ray release, due this July 24th, the geeks have really spruce up the joint, with a new remastered Blu-ray transfer and all manner of bells and whistles. Check out the trailer to get a taste. Welcome to the enterprise! Star Trek: The Next Generation comes to life with the brilliantly re-mastered first season in high-definition, available on Blu-ray on Tuesday, July 24. The new HD transfer with pristine before/after results boasts exclusive special features including never-before-seen archival footage, brand new interviews with key players, gag reel and more! Buy it on Blu-ray. But enough talk! Trailer ahoy:
Once upon a time, I used to read a lot of comic books. Then I discovered girls. I dunno, comic books just didn’t seem all that important after that. I still read a comic or two every now and then, but not sure if I’m going to pick up this “Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive” Issue #1 when it arrives in comic book shops everywhere this September, courtesy of IDW Publishing. The series will boast scripting duties by longtime “Star Trek” writer/showrunner Brannon Braga, who joins forces with fellow writer Terry Matalas and artist Joe Corroney for the series. Here’s a little of what to expect from Picard and company’s trip into comic book form: In a distant future, where the deadly Borg have assimilated the entire Galaxy, Picard, his crew, and some unexpected allies must prove once and for all that resistance is not futile! Packed with mind-bending twists, time-jumping action, and revered, genre-defining characters, STAR TREK: THE… Continue Reading »
Ever wanted to watch Picard and crew doing their “Next Generation” thing on the big screen? Well you’re in luck, because NCM Fathom and CBS TV are coming together to present a special one night event to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” by screening two episodes from “TNG” — episode 106, “Where No One Has Gone Before” and episode 114, “Datalore” on the big screen for one-night only.

If you’ve been waiting to see the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation reunite on TV, you’re in luck, because they just did. Well, in animated form and it was on the hit-and-miss show Family Guy, but hey, a reunion is a reunion, right? The episode is called “Not All Dogs Go to Heaven”, and features Stewie (the show’s evil toddler genius) creating a teleporter ala the show and beaming the cast to his bedroom, then they go out for burgers. No, really. The rest of the episode dealt with Meg finding religion and then trying to convert Brian the dog, who as it turns out is an Atheist. Along the way, Family Guy manages to make fun of Kirk Cameron, trekkers, and Wesley Crusher. I believe all the members of the cast actually provided their real voices.
