Movie Issues: Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness is the twelfth installment in the Star Trek franchise and the sequel to 2009’s Star Trek. J.J. Abrams once again directs with a screenplay written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof.

This new adventure brings back all of our favorite crew members, adds some new ones, and gives us one hell of a ride from start to finish. The movie is reverential, faithful, and steeped in “Trek” mythology. Good or bad, this is a damn fun movie that Trekkies new and old can enjoy.

Review – Star Trek The Next Generation Season 1 Blu Ray

Being a thirty-something does have its perks. I was blessed with what I would call the best amount of TV that any kid deserved. In particular was the 6pm traditions in my household. Which consisted of the family gathering around for another episode of Star Trek the Next Generation.

Now, I’ve seen various releases. I was even at the Star Trek Hotel in Vegas contemplating a $500 DVD purchase of the entire series run on DVD. Well between me and my wife we made a decision to hold out, and hope that one day it might be remastered for the HD age, (and properly yeah I’m giving you the stink eye Lucas) considering what they did with the original series I was more then excited to hear that Next Gen was hitting HD. So how does this series look in HD? Is it the final frontier?

E3 2012 – Star Trek

If you’re not excited about Digital Extremes’ new licensed Star Trek game, you haven’t been paying attention. We broke this title last year, and were excited enough to give DE one of our Best of E3 Pleek Awards.

For those of you who haven’t seen much on the new title, Star Trek abandons the path-most-traveled. Digital Extremes has decided to take the J.J. Abrams universe as inspiration, but to avoid cramping the title by giving it a scenario separated from the 1st and 2nd films in the reboot universe, penned by regular Abrams collaborators Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci (Star Trek, Casino Royale, etc) in conjunction with God of War scribe and BAFTA-winner Marianne Krawczyk.

The title uses a third-person camera view and cover-based game-play, and promises to focus very heavily on co-operative mechanics, from simple mechanics like player revives to area gates (‘Help me lift this, you big strong Vulcan you,’) to actual combat flanking and other tactical game-play choices.
