Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.
This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.
Oh, and there are some major spoilers...
Star Trek: Generations (1994)
1. The first of the Next Generation films was something of a rush job as principal photography »
Leonard Nimoy passed away Friday at the age of 83, and an outpouring of grief, from his fellow Star Trek stars to the President of the United States, demonstrated just how big an impact the man who embodied Mr. Spock for nearly 50 years had on fans worldwide. Nimoy now joins his fellow crewmates DeForest Kelly and James Doohan in the real final frontier, but in remembering his career, one can’t help but to notice the reflection of the Vulcan edict: Infinite diversity in infinite combinations.
Like any actor, it took Nimoy years of toiling in Hollywood before he was cast in his breakthrough role, one that, as it turned out, provided Nimoy with notoriety and opportunity for nearly five decades. But there was more to his career than just Mr. Spock, even if he could never quiet completely run away from the character. An artistic renaissance man, he turned his »

Have you heard Star Trek Continues? I happened to discover it just today, as I was surfing the web this morning. It is an award-winning …well, let me quote from the site itself:
“Star Trek Continues is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries… the brainchild of long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan – and producer, director, actor, voice-actor, musician – Vic Mignogna.
“Star Trek Continues is proud to be part of Trek history, aimed at completing
the final two years of the original five-year mission. After mounting a successful Kickstarter campaign, the show is already making waves and attracting guest stars such as Michael Forest, Jamie Bamber, Lou Ferrigno, and Erin Gray – as well as cameos by Star Trek alums like Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn.”
It really is absolutely captivating. Mr. Mignogna is perfect – and I mean perfect! – William Shatner as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, down to body movements and personal tics. »
