George Takei scores an unlikely defender: William Shatner

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So, George Takei called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas a "clown in blackface" for writing the following passage in his dissent on last week's historic gay marriage ruling: Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built. The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. »

George Takei Calls Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas ‘Clown in Blackface’ (Video)

2 July 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Star Trek” actor George Takei doesn’t believe Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas deserves his seat on the bench. “He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court,” Takei said in an interview with Fox 10 in Phoenix. “I mean, this man does not belong in the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.” Takei’s comments are in response to Thomas’ dissent in Friday’s Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.

Leonard Nimoy's Son Seeks Help With Spock Documentary, and Time Is Running Out

26 June 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Star Trek" icon Leonard Nimoy died this past February 27, and his son Adam is now fighting for the Spock doc they both wanted to live long and prosper.

The documentary, called "For the Love of Spock," has a Kickstarter page with a goal of $600,000. So far, 6,830 backers have pledged just under $490,000. The project will only be funded, it states, if $600K is pledged by Wednesday, July 1. That's less than a week away, so time is running out. Part of the deadline is due to the goal that both Adam and his father had of releasing the doc in time for the 50th anniversary of the original "Star Trek" series in 2016.

Here's Adam's description of how the campaign started:

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 »

'Star Trek': The Story of the Most Daring Cliffhanger in 'Next Generation' History

18 June 2015 10:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In June 1990, many Trekkies considered the crew of the Enterprise-d pretenders to the throne. Star Trek: The Next Generation was closing out its third season, and it was still struggling to step out of the shadow of Kirk's (William Shatner) Enterprise. That was about to change thanks to a daring cliffhanger pulled off in an era of television in which shocking deaths and major plot twists weren't par for the course. When "Best of Both Worlds: Part I" aired 25 years ago this week, it was truly jarring to fans. The season three finale saw the return of The

William Shatner to Take Crazy-Looking 3-Wheeled Motorcycle on Cross-Country Ride—Find Out Why!

7 June 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

William Shatner is set to boldly go riding across the country in a way he has never boldly gone riding before. And you may get to watch his trek on TV. The 84-year-old actor, best known for playing Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series and movies, will ride a custom-made, 3-wheeled Rivet motorcycle, or "trike," from Chicago to Los Angeles. He will take the vehicle, which he helped design, on the famed Route 66 highway for most of the 8-day, 2,400-mile journey. His trek is aimed at promoting the new vehicle, which looks completely insane—like something Batman would ride, and raising awareness for American Legion, the United States' biggest veterans organization.
