Key Partners Exit Galileo Auction Effort

With the original "Star Trek" shuttlecraft prop Galileo just weeks away from being put up for auction, one major effort that included some big names in Star Trek to acquire and restore the shuttlecraft has fallen apart. Galileo Restoration, a group led by Propworx chief executive officer Alec Peters, will have to regroup following the departure of some key members of its group. Just a day after the Gene Roddenberry-endorsed Star Trek fan club the International Federation of Trekkers left the project, former "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Battlestar Galactica" visual effects artist Doug Drexler and longtime Star Trek graphics creator Michael Okuda have departed the project. These departures happen exactly when Galileo Restoration was beginning to raise money toward a $100,000 ...

Disney to adapt ‘Graveyard,” ‘Fringe’ back for 13 episodes, ‘St:tng’ Blu Ray release date confirmed

Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny is in final talks to join the second season of American Horror Story, set to begin production this summer. Sevigny will play a character named Shelly the Nymphomaniac, who is one of the mortal enemies of Jessica Lange’s character. Apparently, the writers and producers of Ahs were such fans of Sevigny that they wrote the part with her in mind. The actress will join Lange, Zachary Quinto, Adam Levine, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe in the new season, which Murphy has revealed will be set in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane run by Lange’s character.

Fox has agreed to a fifth and final season for Fringe. While its only 13 episodes, it does give the creative team a chance to end the show they want to, a rarity in this business. But the show, despite poor ratings, has always been supported by the network.

'Star Trek: The Next Generation' season 1 coming to Blu-ray: Details on the release -- Exclusive Video

'Star Trek: The Next Generation' season 1 coming to Blu-ray: Details on the release -- Exclusive Video
When Star Trek: The Next Generation debuted on Sept. 28, 1987, it was one of the most ambitious first episodes of television ever produced. No matter how popular the feature films had been with the original cast, bringing Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic sci-fi vision of our future back to TV with an all-new cast and U.S.S. Enterprise was far from a slam dunk. And then there was the scale of the two-hour pilot, “Encounter at Farpoint,” with roughly 200 feature-film-level visual effects.

That ambition, however, was worth it. St:tng debuted to nearly 27 million viewers, and the show ran for a robust 178 episodes over seven seasons.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Gets HD Release For 25th Anniversary

I have to tell you, as odd as it may sound, I'm not really a guy who needs his TV shows in HD. A Blu-Ray release might be different, because you're bound to get some cool special features, but as far the show itself being in HD, I could take it or leave it. Now, when it comes to Star Trek: The Next Generation, that might be a different story. I'm not absolutely sure it's a different story, but it might be.

Well, now I'll get to find out.

Apparently fans have been clamoring for the show to get an HD release, and they're finally getting their wish. Take a look.

Celebrating the 24th anniversary of its pilot debut today, September 28th, “The Next Generation” has represented a true challenge to bring to high definition.

Padd App Review

Star Trek fans now have a unique way to geek out, and it comes in the form of a way for them to learn anything they might not already know about the franchise (or at least, don't have memorized). Star Trek Padd (Personal Access Display Device) is an iPad App that recreates the Lcars computer interface from Star Trek, and includes a database of just about everything that has ever happened in the Star Trek television universe.

The interface comes complete with a wide variety of vocal responses that will be familiar to fans, and the look and "feel" of the Padd, as you move around is just as you'd hope from seeing it in the various versions of the franchise shows. Whether it's info on the ships, characters, or so much more, it's all at your fingertips.

The only question about the App might be in terms of the number of images available,

Review: ‘Probe’ TV Pilot

  • Comicmix
In the fall of 1972, I was 14 and consuming as much science fiction and heroic fantasy as I could mainline. As a result, I was the prime candidate to fall in love with a television series that had great concepts, an appealing cast and plenty of action. None were more disappointed when the series, Search, faded after a single season. Thanks to the Wayback Machine that is Warner Archive, the pilot film, Probe, is currently available with hints that the series itself may follow.

Billed as “science fiction in today’s world”, NBC offered up a series that may be a little creaky upon watching today but the series offered some forward looking thinking that was all too rare during the 1970s. It all began with a two-hour telefilm that served as a pilot from Outer Limits creator Leslie Stevens. Producing the show was Star Trek veteran Robert Justman which may

Bryan Singer’s Star Trek: Federation T.V. Pitch Revealed

Star Trek fever is starting to grip us here at Obsessed With Film as the sequel to J.J. Abrams’ impossibly brilliant 2009 franchise reboot gears up to film this summer. Add to that, soon our very own Simon Gallagher will beam up an essay on his own desire to see a new Star Trek TV show put into production and what he hopes it might revolve around. As coincidence would have it, this may turn out to be perfect timing as Trek Movie (thanks to /film for passing on the link) have gotten their hands on an actual Star Trek TV proposal for a show that might have been but sadly wasn’t.

If you’ve been following Trek Movie closely lately then you will have no doubt heard Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Jonathan Frakes talk about a show that X-Men and Superman Returns director Bryan Singer had been
