Star Trek: TOS

Data Feed: It's So Easy, Even Kirk Can Do It

Data Feed: It's So Easy, Even Kirk Can Do ItOhhh myyy, our favorite helmsman (yes we know he was captain of the Excelsior) George Takei has lent his name and appearance to new commercials for the Social Security Administration.  We know George's age, but man, he looks too young to qualify for Social Security.  George stars opposite Patty Duke in the Star Trek spoofs where both don pseudo TOS uniforms and perform in front of a green screen.  

"You’ve navigated through asteroid belts, right?” Patty asks. “Well, compared to that, navigating socialsecurity.gov is a snap. It’s so easy even Kirk could do it.”  Neither Patty nor George were paid for the endorsement. George explains, “I have some notoriety from Star Trek and this is a way to get people to note the fact that we can now go online to apply for Social Security,”

Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy To Voice A Character In The New Transformers Film

Just announced today, Mr. Spock Leonard Nimoy will be a voice actor in the new “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, set to be released in July 2011. He is set to be the voice for Sentinel Prime.

Apart from his obvious Star Trek cred, Nimoy also has a history with Hasbro’s shape-shifting alien robots: He was the voice of Galvatron in 1986?s “The Transformers: The Movie.”

Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy Is 80 Today. Happy Birthday To You, Sir! Live Long & Prosper!!

Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy Is 80 Today. Happy Birthday To You, Sir! Live Long & Prosper!!

We’d like to wish Leonard Nimoy a VERY Happy Birthday today, on this, his 80th year!! Happy Birthday Leonard, you’ve entertained and enlightened us, and we thank you!

Leonard Nimoy has been in a ton of films and TV shows. Trust me; looking through his IMDB page almost gave my scroll finger carpal tunnel. Although he wrote and narrated one of my favorite documentary series of all time, “In Search Of”, the role that we all hold dearest to our hearts is that lovable Vulcan, Spock.

Here’s some of our favorite moments with Spock. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

It’s…

Star Trek’s William Shatner Turns 80. Happy Birthday Mr. The Shat!!!

Star Trek’s William Shatner Turns 80. Happy Birthday Mr. The Shat!!!

We’d like to wish William Shatner a VERY Happy Birthday, today on his 80th birthday!! Happy Birthday Bill, thanks for all the fun and laughs over the years!

Unless you’ve been in Rura Penthe for the last 100 years you would know that William Shatner has done it all. From actor to director to producer to writer, he has worn just about every hat in Hollywood a person could wear. However, it’s his acting that most of us remember. During his galaxy-sized career he has portrayed such memorable characters as Denny Crane, The Big Giant Head, Bob Wilson, T.J. Hooker and none other than our venerable, lovable, unforgettable…Captain James Tiberius Kirk.

Star Trek’s Nichelle Nichols Gives Out Free Autographed Photos For A Good Cause

We, here at Subspace Communique, are huge fans of Nichelle Nichols (you’re thinking…”no duh?”). She’s such a class act, so talented, and so giving that we didn’t think we could admire her any more than we already did…until today.

Today she made an announcement that she would mail (for free, to ANY country) an autographed photo to the first 1,000 people that donate $50 or more to any organization listed on usaid.gov, the U.S Agency for International Development (USAID). 

Star Trek's LeVar Burton & Walter Koenig On "Shatner's Raw Nerve" Tomorrow Night

Star Trek's LeVar Burton & Walter Koenig On Shatner's "Raw Nerve" Tomorrow Night

Thanks to Miles from the Scifi Diner Podcast for giving us the heads-up on this. Tomorrow night (March 14th) Bio Channel's "Shatner's Raw Nerve" is serving up a Star Trek double header, starting off with TNG's LeVar Burton at 10pm / 9pm Central. In the preview clip for the episode, LeVar describes his time on the set of "Roots" and discusses his most difficult scene while filming the mini-series.

"For me 'Roots' is all about... family. It's about who we are, why we are the way we are" Says LeVar. "When I read those first sides for Kunta, I know exactly who this kid was. I had no problem putting myself in all of those situations." LeVar then goes into detail about his most difficult moment on the series.

Check out the LeVar Burton episode preview video here

Then if that wasn't enough, Star Trek's Walter Koenig joins The Shat to discuss, among other things, his time after Star Trek's cancelation.

Data Feed: Star Trek’s William "The Shat" Shatner To Pick 2 Lucky Canadian Fans At The Genie Awards, eh?

This Thursday, March 10th in Ottawa, Ontario Canada, The Shat will host the 31st Annual Genie Awards. The Genie Awards seem similar to The Academy Awards in many ways, except The Genies are given out by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. Apparently there is a first come, first serve primo section of the red carpet called the Fan Zone where, at this year’s awards, The Shat will do his magic.

The Genie Awards 'Fan Zone' is a coveted and prime celeb-spotting position near the red carpet. Host, William Shatner will hand pick two lucky fans from the 'Fan Zone' to cross the red carpet and attend the Awards.

What do you think the 2 lucky fans will be more excited about? Getting to attend the Awards, or getting to hold The Shat’s hand?  We vote for the hand.  I mean, come on, it's the same hand the killed the Gorn, almost.

Discovery Wakes To Star Trek Theme & The Voice Of The Shat

As we reported last week, the crew of the space shuttle Discovery woke up this morning to the sweet sounds of the Star Trek Theme (by Alexander Courage, ST:TOS). In a surprise twist, the wake up call included a pre-recorded message from the big man himself, William Shatner. In a modified version of the TOS prologue, The Shat bid tribute to Discovery's 30 year mission. Check out a transcript below.

"Space, the final frontier, These have been the voyages of the space shuttle Discovery. Her 30-year mission: to seek out new science, to build new outposts, to bring nations together on the final frontier, to boldly go and do what no spacecraft has done before."

In case you missed the wake up call this morning, you can check out the Youtube version below.
