30 August 2015 4:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Directed by Tim Russ (Tuvok) and featuring the likes of Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov) and Robert Picardo (Dr. Lewis Zimmerman), the crowdfunded Star Trek fan film / spec pilot Star Trek: Renegades has arrived online, and you can watch the entire 90-minute film right here after the official synopsis…

When a seemingly unstoppable new enemy threatens the very existence of the Earth, Admiral Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) is forced to work outside the boundaries of Starfleet’s rules to combat this deadly new foe.

When planet after planet winks out of existence, yet Starfleet refuses to act, Chekov turns to Commander Tuvok (Tim Russ, who also directs), the new head of Starfleet’s covert operations division, Section 31. Together, they assemble a new elite strike-force, consisting of rogues, outcasts and criminals, led by the fearless yet haunted Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson).

The Renegades’ mission is simple: take on an army and stop their leader, »

First-Ever 'Star Trek' Cruise Drops Anchor in 2017

24 August 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Star Trek" is boldly going where the 50-year-franchise has never gone before: the Pacific Ocean. From January 9 to 15, 2017, Star Trek: The Cruise will sail from Miami to Cozumel, to Nassau and the private island of Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. Tickets for what looks to be a ridiculously over-the-top event start at $995 a pop. While a trip between Florida and the Bahamas might not seem so extravagant or otherworldly to some of the 2,200 fans who will be fortunate enough to come aboard, this six-day excursion that boasts a number of "immersive experiences" for Trekkies. These include a takeover of the private island, a specially designed ship featuring authentic replicas from the original "Star Trek" series (such as the infamous Quarks Bar), and performances by William Shatner, Marina Sirtis and Jonathan Frakes — in conjunction with a Star Trek Family Feud, a Star Trek-themed masquerade ball, and of course, »

Star Trek icons Chekov and Tuvok return in unofficial fanmade film Renegades

24 August 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ever wondered what happened after Voyager in the Star Trek universe? A new movie explores just that, except it's not official in any way.

Star Trek: Renegades has been released in its entirety on YouTube today (August 24), following a crowdfunded campaign back in 2013. Is it any good? Take a look for yourself:

Yeah... it's not exactly Into Darkness. The project is essentially fan fiction shot on a shoestring budget with a huge amount of greenscreen. Still, die-hard Star Trek fans will no doubt love seeing some of their favourites back.

Although it is not official Star Trek canon, it does feature several characters and actors from the original universe, including Walter Koenig as Pavel Chekov and Tim Russ as Voyager's Tuvok.

Richard Herd returns as Voyager's Owen Paris and Robert Picardo is back as Doctor Lewis Zimmerman.

And, most depressingly, Terminator 2 actor Edward Furlong also appears as a character named 'Fixer'. »

Original Batgirl, Yvonne Craig, Dead at 78

19 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yvonne Craig, who played Batgirl in the 1960s "Batman" series, died this week after a two-year battle with breast cancer at the age of 78.

If you trace the line of butt-kicking women in movies and TV all the way back, you'll find Craig right there at the beginning. She originated the role of Batgirl in the third and final season of "Batman" in 1967, ka-powing bad guys next to Adam West and Burt Ward. As a trained dancer, she even did her own stunts.

Before her acting career, Craig danced with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. She segued into acting, and appeared in television and movies - including two with Elvis Presley, "It Happened at the World's Fair" and "Kissin' Cousins." Along with her turn as Batgirl, Craig memorably danced as a green-skinned slave girl for Captain Kirk on "Star Trek."

Actress Yvonne Craig, who starred in the role of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the 1960s "Batman" TV series, passed away in her home on Monday night at the age of 78 due to breast cancer.

Craig had a long career on TV with roles in "The Man from Uncle," "The Wild Wild West" and "The Ghost & Mrs. Muir". However it was two key small screen appearances that will be forever remembered.

George Takei’s New Web Series Goes Behind-The-Scenes On Broadway

18 August 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

On November 8th, George Takei will come to Broadway. The former Star Trek cast member turned social media savant will bring Allegiance, a musical based off his life story, to Manhattan’s Longacre Theater. In order to give his fans an accurate depiction of what it’s like to create a Broadway show, Takei has launched Allegiance: Trek To Broadway, a behind-the-scenes web series available on his Facebook page.

Allegiance is based off Takei’s experience during World War II, when his family was forcibly relocated at one of the Us’ infamous Japanese-American internment camps. The musical first ran in San Diego in 2012, where it picked up several local awards.

San Diego, however, is far from the big lights of Broadway, and that’s where Trek To Broadway comes in. In each installment of his 10-episode web series, Takei will break down specific elements of the production process.

'Wolverine 3' Will Have a Very Different Professor X

15 August 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was first rumored, and then later confirmed by the actor himself, that Patrick Stewart will be returning as Professor X, aka Charles Xavier, in 2017's Wolverine 3. Now, speaking with ScreenRant, Patrick Stewart teases that we may be seeing a Professor X who has been altered by the changing timelines set up in X-Men: Days of Future Past and is probably more influenced by James McAvoy's take on the character. The actor, who has played Charles Xavier in every X-Men movie to date except for X-Men: First Class, doesn't really know too much about this new take on Charles, but he finds himself intrigued by the possibilities.

We all know that Wolverine 3 will mark Hugh Jackman's last turn as the indestructible Mutant Logan, and he only beats Patrick Stewart by one movie in terms of appearances, being the only actor to appear in all 7 X-Men movies that have been released. »
