The Star Trek CookbookWritten by Chelsea Monroe-CasselHardcover | $35.00E-book | $16.99Published by Gallery Books | 192 Pages Cookbook author and food stylist Chelsea Monroe-Cassel has done cookbooks for other big franchises (most notably Game of Thrones), but when she got the call to do a Star Trek cookbook, she was overjoyed—as a longtime fan who grew up watching The Next Generation (and eventually every show in the franchise), it had been on her bucket list for years. (And yes, she’s also a fan of the 1999 cookbook of the same name written by Ethan Phillips and William J. Birnes, and makes it clear that despite some crossover, her recipes are all-new.) She does her fandom proud with this gorgeous, in-canon, beautifully written collection of Starfleet-sponsored recipes featuring every...

The Motion Picture – The Director’s Edition’ Stuns On 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray – TrekMovie.com

Star Trek: The Motion Picture – The Director’s Edition has come home in three editions. A 2-disc Ultra HD Blu-ray set, a 2-disc standard Blu-ray set, and a special limited edition 3-disc Ultra HD Blu-ray set called “The Complete Adventure.” This review will focus on the Ultra HD Blu-ray set and the US version of the limited edition box set. The Motion Picture Before there was a movie franchise, there was simply Star Trek: The Motion Picture. As the name states, this was a film based on Star Trek: The Original Series, released 10 years after the series was canceled, it was an almost unheard idea to not only bring back a canceled TV show but do it on the silver screen.

Lower Decks’ Getting Grounded And More Legacy Characters For Season 3 – TrekMovie.com

On Thursday, the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks returned with a bang for its third season with the episode “Grounded.” TrekMovie had a chance to speak with series creator and showrunner Mike McMahan about putting together the episode and how it sets up what’s coming in season 3. The title of the season opener “Grounded” feels like it has many meanings, like how much of the humor is more character-based. Is that something you are moving towards in season 3? For the first episode back, we wanted to feel like not only setting the stage for this season, but we also wanted to pay some of the bills from last season. And we wanted to celebrate episodes where you go back to Earth. So it has a little bit of all those flavors. I really love the episode because I love First Contact. I love...

The second season of Strange New Worlds has already been shot and the showrunner and cast are dropping more clues about what we can expect with Kirk, Spock, Pike, and maybe more. When Kirk met Spock The season one finale of Strange New Worlds featured the introduction of Paul Wesley as Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Farragut in an alternate future. Kirk will be back in season two, but this time it’s the canon “Prime” timeline and he will be a younger lieutenant on the Farragut. So this new season will show him meeting the USS Enterprise crew for the first time, including Spock who will become his closest friend. The importance of this moment was not lost on the writers, as explained by co-showrunner Henry Alonso Myers in a brief interview with TV Line, saying: We think about it every ...

Former Eaglemoss Licensing Head Ben Robinson Offers Hope After Company Ceases Operations – TrekMovie.com

Eaglemoss Ltd. through their Hero Collector brand has been one of the most active and prolific Star Trek licensees over the last decade, releasing a steady stream of Star Trek die-cast models as well as other products including figures, busts, and even books. The company’s offerings went well beyond Star Trek, with products tied to Doctor Who, James Bond, Alien, and many other franchises. However, that all came to a halt in July when the UK-based company stopped all sales and shipments of products, with reports that the company was in financial trouble, leaving their regular customers in the dark about the future of their collections. TrekMovie has attempted to get more clarity from Eaglemoss, however, there have been no official statements or responses to inquiries. The only sort of of...
