Paramount Says 'Star Trek' Fan Film Lawsuit Lives On

16 June 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Despite the fact that Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin has urged Paramount Pictures to drop a lawsuit over a crowdfunded Star Trek fan film, and notwithstanding comments from executive producer J.J. Abrams that an announcement would be coming about an end to the litigation, the parties involved in the fight over Axanar  continue to lob court filings at each other. The latest comes on Wednesday when plaintiffs Paramount and CBS told a California federal judge that their action remains pending. The two studios filed a copyright infringement lawsuit at the very end of 2015, and over objections that the Star Trek rights-

Molly Jackson: The Future of Enlightenment

15 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

A good friend and writing partner is tired of me talking about Star Trek. She was never a Trek watcher but since it is the 50th Anniversary, she has decided to give it a try. Persistence really does pay off! Since she was finally watching Star Trek: The Original Series, I figured I would jump in too. It’s been a while since I watched any of Tos. Plus, I just finished rewatching Next Generation.

The original series was Gene Roddenberry’s true vision of a future where humans have evolved to become more enlightened, working for the betterment of humanity. So when I started to watch, I just jumped in where I had previously left off during another binge. (Thanks, Netflix, for holding my spot!) I jumped on Season 2 episode Patterns of Force.

If you haven’t seen this episode, it is when Kirk and Spock go looking for a missing Federation researcher John Gill and discover a planet full of Nazis. The planets of the system have been in a conflict, with the Zeons being hunted just as the Jews were. Kirk is forced to take action to save lives because the Prime Directive (which prohibits interference with developing cultures) was already broken by Gill restarting Nazi Germany.

It is a profound episode, showcasing the horrors of the holocaust. Even so, in 1968 when this episode aired Jews were still banned from clubs and businesses in America, still denied jobs and opportunities just because of their faith. By using this horrific event, Roddenberry was able, along with prominent Jewish actors, to remind the public that Jews were people just like them. Did it work? On a large scale, probably not. However, if it stuck with only a few people, those people could have grown to help end the cycle of hate.

This is the power of science fiction. It uses entertainment to teach us about the mistakes of the past and shows us the potential of the future. I can only wonder how Roddenberry would have reacted to our recent events. Mass shootings on the rise, with more groups targeted for religious affiliation, the color of their skin, or their sexual/gender orientation. I want to believe that he would have looked to take a stand against this ongoing cycle of hate.

It’s true that Star Trek never had a regular cast member that was considered Lgbtq at the time, but there were storylines throughout different seasons invoking those themes. I hope that the writers of the new show can continue Roddenberry’s practice of social commentary and have a Lgbtq character be a part of the show’s cast. We need to use the horrific act of violence in Orlando to change the image and social understanding of how any human, regardless of their sexual/gender orientation, should be treated.

In the episode I watched, the missing researcher tells Kirk “Even historians fail to learn from history and repeat the same mistakes.” It is a quote to think about. We, as a culture, are failing to learn from history. The attack against Pulse, an Lgbtq nightclub, sadly proves that. Unlike the TV show, we have no heroes beaming down to save the day. We need to learn to save ourselves. As a world community, we need to declare that ending the cycle of hate is our top priority. Our Prime Directive. This attack on the Lgbt community isn’t the first attack but together, maybe we can make it the last.

If you are a member of the Lgbtq community, then you have my support. If you are an ally like me, then make sure you show your support. The world needs to know that this problem affects everyone, not just this small group of people. Together is the only way we can make the world a better place, and bring us one step closer to a utopian world of enlightenment. »

Donald Trump Turns 70: 'I Don't Want to Hear About It,' Says Birthday Boy Who Would Be Oldest U.S. President to Be Sworn In

Donald Trump rings in his 70th birthday on Tuesday, an occasion he will celebrate on the campaign trail with an evening rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. If his campaign succeeds, he will be the oldest person ever to be elected president in U.S. history. Ronald Reagan was inaugurated at age 69, just a few weeks shy of his 70th birthday. Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who will turn 69 on Oct. 26, would tie with Reagan as the oldest person ever to take office. She is however, the youngest of the last three candidates standing in the 2016 race. Her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders »

Geordie Racer: revisiting an 80s Look And Read classic

Den Of Geek wheels in the big telly for a fond look back at pigeon crime Look And Read schools series, Geordie Racer…

“Spuggy and Plod weren’t runners. They just didn’t see the point”. And thus the hero of the BBC's Geordie Racer and his dog were endeared to a generation of biscuit-eating 1980s schoolchildren.

Part of the long-running Look And Read series of television programming for schools, Geordie Racer was written by The Bill’s Christopher Russell and first aired in 1988. Its ten episodes told a continuing crime story interspersed with factual spots about the North-East and appearances by Wordy, a floating Henry Hoover/Scrabble set who played songs about gerunds. Wordy was just part of Geordie Racer’s educational framing narrative though, Spuggy was its star.

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight Join ‘Man From Earth’ Sequel

27 May 2016 4:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight, Brittany Curran, Carlos Knight and Akemi Look are joining “The Man From Earth: Holocene,” a sequel to 2007’s sci-fier “The Man From Earth.”

David Lee Smith, who portrayed the lead character John Oldman, and William Katt will return. The storyline for the sequel is being kept under wraps until the film’s release in 2017.

The 2007 original, penned by sci-fi writer/author Jerome Bixby, centered on a college professor who’s actually a centuries-old caveman. Richard Schenkman is returning to direct with shooting starting next week in Southern California.

The original script was the last work from Bixby, best known for his 1953 story “It’s a Good Life,” which was the basis for a 1961 episode of “The Twilight Zone” and was included in “Twilight Zone: The Movie.” He also wrote four episodes for the “Star Trek” series and co-wrote the story upon which the movie “Fantastic Voyage” was based. »

5 Best Comedy Roasts of All Time

27 May 2016 3:19 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If Betty White has taught us anything, it's that being old doesn't mean you're not hilarious. It also doesn't mean you're not really, really vulgar when the battlefield of comedy needs you to drop some serious F-bombs.

By entertainment standards, the roast -- a concept originated by the Friar's Club fraternity way back in 1907 -- is an absolute dinosaur. But it's like a T. rex that assaults you with politically incorrect character assassination and ridiculous celebrity humiliation instead of killer jaws and tiny arms -- old as it is, the roast walks the razor's edge of "too funny" and "too far." Here are five times the comics got that balance exactly right.

Did you know that Capt. Kirk is Canadian?Ok, that's a bit of a stretch. But William Shatner, who played Capt. Kirk in the original "Star Trek," is most definitely Canadian, hailing from Montreal. Long before he commanded a Federation starship, Shatner was performing at the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario, and appearing on the Canadian "Howdy Doody" show as Ranger Bob.With that connection, Canada is clearly excited to celebrate its connection to Star Trek during the show's 50th Anniversary with a series of coins, stamps and special exhibits.Shatner was just in Ottawa last week to attend the opening of the Starfleet Academy Experience.

Star Trek Star Scolds Marvel on White Washing

4 May 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 George Takei, who played Sulu on the classic Star Trek TV series and the follow-up movie versions, is not buying Marvel’s excuses for casting a white actress to play an established Asian character. Takei argues that the decision to cast Tilda Swinton is symbolic of a much deeper systemic problem regarding the casting of white actors in Asian roles.

 Dr. Strange has a new enemy in George Takei. Taki, Aka Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the Starship Enterprise, who was one of the pioneers for strong Asian roles on television, is taking to social media to chastise Marvel Studios for their decision to change Dr. Strange’s long-established Asian mentor the Ancient One to a Celtic character.

 Marvel’s stated reasoning for the race-change was that the character of the Ancient One was created as a Tibetan sage, and Marvel/Disney fear that this aspect of the character would be »
