Star Trek: Discovery showrunners tease story, Jonathan Frakes joins as director

2 July 2017 5:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Star Trek: Discovery set to beam onto TV sets this September, showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg have been chatting to EW about the story for the hotly-anticipated series, and while they were reluctant to give too much away, they did reveal that Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham is the first human to have attended the Vulcan Science Academy.

“Burnham spent a lot of time on Vulcan, but she’s human,” said Harberts. “Sarek [Spock’s father, played by James Frain] plays an important role in her life, which has been completely planned until she makes a very difficult choice that sends her life on a very different path. When we meet her, she’s the First Officer on the Starship Shenzhou [captained by Philippa Georgiou, played by Michelle Yeoh]. And Burnham’s choice that we’re alluding to is most difficult choice you can make — it affects her, affects Starfleet, affects the Federation, it affects the entire universe. That choice leads her to a different ship, »

So many spoilers, as we go looking for references in Doctor Who series 10, Oxygen...

This article contains spoilers for Doctor Who series 10, up to and including Oxygen.

Space zombies, near-death experiences and what we can only hope is a temporary change for the Doctor… In Oxygen, writer Jamie Mathieson has quite literally played a blinder. And for the more observant among us, there were a handful of pop culture references and callbacks to earlier stories. Here’s our weekly round-up of the ones we noticed, along with the odd bit of wild speculation and things we just found interesting.

Oh, and look out for an extra article on Monday which takes a closer look at a few bits of graphic design this series - including the answer to a question which has been plaguing some of us for a couple of weeks now. »

Comic Book Review – Star Trek: Deviations

15 March 2017 1:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: Deviations…

In a world where the Romulans discovered Earth before the Vulcans, Earth is now a brutal penal colony. Resistance fighter William Riker has uncovered a vast conspiracy, and together with his band of prisoner outlaws (you just might recognize a few!), must fight to rescue a mysterious prisoner in the darkest level of the Romulan dungeons. The only man on Earth that still holds the key to humanity’s return to the stars!

It’s not often “One-Shots” come around in the Trek series; normally we get a short run of a few issues dealing with a separate story, or as in the case of Star Trek: Waypoint a cluster of “One Shots”.  Though here in Deviations – from Donny Cates – we have an honest to goodness one shot, and we’re »

Just as the Star Wars films has been a force to be reckoned with in the best visual effects category, the Star Trek films have done the same in the best makeup and hairstyling category. Over the course of Oscar history — or at least since the addition of this award — this sci-fi franchise has amassed four nominations in this category with one of those being a win and one being up in the air this year. Let’s take a look back and see if history can help us predict how Star Trek Beyond will perform.

Before jumping into the Star Trek goodness, let’s get a little background on the best makeup and hairstyling category, shall we? The category, which features multiple stages of nominating, was first present at the 1982 ceremony with a focus on makeup and didn’t »
