‘Star Trek’ Lawsuit: Copyright of Klingon Language in Question

28 April 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CBS and Paramount’s lawsuit against the makers of a fan-made “Star Trek” film took a cheeky turn Thursday when a brief was filed on behalf of the defendants arguing the merits of whether the Klingon language could be copyrighted. The bulk of the argument, as laid out in a brief authored by Language Creation Society’s Marc Randazza, is that a language cannot be copyrighted. “It would not take a Vulcan to explain their logic — even the Pakleds would know that nobody can ‘own’ a language,” read the brief, in part.

A Town Called Vulcan: Star Trek Haven of the North

19 April 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stardate, 2016. We start off for… hold up. I have a confession. I am not a Trekkie. I owe no allegiance to the myriad TV iterations, although I am fond of the original mid-’60s series and their subsequent big screen adventures (except for The Final Frontier—I am reasonably lucid). However, this particular voyage is co-captained by my wife, Michelle, who has a deep fondness for the original gang and their follow-up crew of The Next Generation (which I don’t like, and yet she still married me). She can identify scenes by hearing orchestral movements from the series and the films. In short, she is a Trekkie (and yes, I asked her permission to call her that—I’m not insane).

Okay, let’s try this again. My wife and I leave the big city of Calgary, Alberta behind for a day trip to visit the Trekcetera Museum, located »

A documentary paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy has its first full trailer...

Just over a year since the still keenly-felt loss of Leonard Nimoy, a documentary remembering his legacy is nearing release.

For The Love Of Spock is directed by Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy's son, and it features interviews with Star Trek figures across the long history of the series. The film is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in the Us later this month, and will then be made available via streaming services primarily later in 2016.

The origins of the project go back to before Leonard Nimoy's death, and here's how Adam Nimoy pitched the project last year on its Kickstarter appeal page...

Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books »

The Most Unintentionally Funny Star Trek Fight Scenes

20 March 2016 9:12 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Does anyone remember the scene in the movie Cable Guy when Jim Carrey takes on Matthew Broderick at Medieval Times?  Remember how Jim Carrey is mocking one of the most notorious fight scenes from Star Trek?  That’s because it’s hilarious.  And just as the scene in Cable Guy is pretty funny, throughout history, Star Trek had its moments. I don’t think unintentionally funny fights get any better than Star Trek. Hell I don’t think anything unintentionally funny beats William Shatner doing whatever it is her do. The way this guy talked, walked, and had a cocky vibe was all just

Complaints centre on host Chris Rock’s skit featuring three children from east Asian backgrounds introduced as ‘Academy accountants’, with response so far denounced as ‘patronising’

Oscars organisers are to meet with Asian and Asian-American Hollywood figures, including Oscar-winning director Ang Lee and Star Trek icon George Takei, to address complaints over “tasteless and offensive skits” based on racial stereotyping at this year’s ceremony.

Star Trek actor George Takei, one of 24 Academy members who wrote an open letter of complaint after the awards ceremony, has dismissed the ‘bland corporate response’

East Asian Hollywood stars have reacted angrily to a “patronising” apology from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for its “tone-deaf” attitude at this year’s Oscars.

Two dozen Academy members, including the two-time Oscar-winning film-maker Ang Lee, Star Trek actor George Takei and the actor Sandra Oh, published an open letter to organisers on 15 March, complaining about “tasteless and offensive skits” based on racial stereotyping at this year’s ceremony. Now the Academy’s response has been dismissed out of hand by Takei, and the industry site Deadline says that it “basically reads like a form letter”.

Four-time Emmy winner Gary Hutzel, known for his VFX work on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Caprice” and “Battlestar Galactica,” died Friday. He was 60.

Hutzel died while working on upcoming Freeform drama “Beyond” in Vancouver, a rep for the network confirmed.

Along with his four wins, Hutzel was nominated 20 times at the Emmys in his long career. Hutzel worked on VFX in the first five seasons of “Next Generation” before moving to “Deep Space Nine” in 2003. He would go on to serve as visual effects supervisor on that series for its seven-season run.
