Everyone's favorite ensign and internet wonderboy, Wil Wheaton, recently starred in a new short with The Walking Dead star Chandler Riggs. Recently? You ask... Well okay, so it was uploaded in July. I'm a little behind the times and the only reason I know anything about it is that Mary from DVD Geeks shared it today. Yeah she posted it to Google +, I think. Anyway, what do you want from me? This site's free. Get off my lawn!... My best guess is that the short was filmed at one of the Wizard World Comic-Cons, since both Chandler and Wil have been hitting the circuit pretty heavily. Whoops, scratch that, looks like it was filmed down under at an Aussie convention.
Earlier this year, two of our Trek friends joined forces to present a Vegas Khhaaan! tour-de-force. Tour being the operative word here. Next year, Geek Nation Tours and Trekland's own Larry Nemecek are partnering again for the special Exploring Trek Sites: Hollywood to Vegas tour. The 2013 version will include trips to Vasquez Rocks, Mojave Desert filming locales, and the Valley of Fire in Nevada were Captain James T. Kirk spent his last moments. Just like this year's tour, H2V 2013 will end at Creation Entertainment's Star Trek Las Vegas convention.
"He Operates As A Terrorist" Says Benedict Cumberbatch About The Star Trek Into Darkness Villain John Harrison
Benedict Cumberbatch recently talked to MTV News about his role in Star Trek Into Darkness. Mr. John Harrison... If that's your real name... "He is a terrorist, he operates as a terrorist," Says Benedict. "He has extraordinary physical powers but also mental powers."
It's going to be a crazy ride to May 17th. All of the press for Star Trek Into Darkness is really starting to ramp up and it's only going to get crazier the closer we get to summer. Trek newcomer Alice Eve recently talked to Digital Spy about her time working on the new J.J. Abrams film and had nothing but praise for her director.
Thanks to our good friend Darren Benjamin from Trekcast for sending us this link. Everyone's favorite android from Star Trek: The Next Generation beams into the this new robotics advertisement from General Electric. Along with Data, we get to see old friends like Robbie The Robot, Johnny 5, K.I.T.T. (minus The Hoff), GERTY from Moon, and a ton of other recognizable artificial life. Called "Robots on the Move", the advert runs about a minute long and is showcasing GE's robotics division, I think. Anyway, I thought it was rather clever.
The "world" tour of William Shatner's one man play Shatner's World: We Just Live In It is coming to our neck of the woods early next year with stops in Galveston, Orange, & San Antonio, January 6th, 7th, and 9th respectively. The Shat will end the Texan leg of his tour on January 10th at the Paramount Theater in Austin. Will we go? We'll see, but we wanted to share the news for any other Austinites that might want to see Sir Billiam on stage.
Remember how I said I didn't like spoilers... oh well. Paramount just released the synopsis for the upcoming J.J. Abrams helmed Trek sequel Star Trek: Into Darkness. From what I've read, it sounds like Benedict Cumberbatch IS NOT playing Landru, NOR The Horta, NOR The Doomsday Machine. Yeah, yeah, bad grammar... No, in fact it sounds more like Gary Mitchell. You be the judge.

With much fanfaire, and maybe a little help from our Tim Russ interview, Star Trek: Renegades has met it's initial $200,000 goal on Kickstarter and is shooting for stretch funding of $250,000. Even if the new goal isn't met, the new fan film is funded and with that good news we learn that new stars have been added to the already full roster.
