Klingon beer will soon be sold in the US…

For the first time ever , Star Trek will launch it’s very first beer. The name of the first Star Trek beer will be called, “Warnog” which is the name of the actual Klingon beer that was seen in the TV series. No launch date has been announced yet but they said it will be out sometime later this year.


I’m not much of an alcohol drinker anymore but I gotta try this so hopefully my area will sell it. There is a beverage store here.

What’s gonna be next? Romulan Ale? Cpt. Picard’s “Earl Grey Tea”???


The best Star Trek movies ranked in order…



The Star Trek official page posted this interesting image… ranking the best Star Trek movies in order that was chosen by fans at a Star Trek convention. Here is the entire Star Trek filmography ranked in order from best to worst.

Some of you may scratch your head at this list and ask yourself, “Why is Galaxy Quest listed there?”. “Galaxy Quest” is a comedy film starring Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver. The film is also a homage to Star Trek, a tribute kind of thing. That’s why the movie made the list. It’s a parody of Trek.

I agree with this list. It’s pretty well done.

I agree that the first four listed on here are the best ones of them all. “The Wrath of Khan” was the best Trek movie of the original series and “First Contact” was the best of the TNG series. I did like the “Undiscovered Country” and “The Voyage Home”.

All the other Star Trek films needed a little work. To be honest with you, I never really cared for the JJ Abrams reboot. I never saw, “Star Trek Into Darkness” in theater. I was gonna wait for rental on that one. What’s wrong with Star Trek? Is this franchise dying? The reason for the reboot with younger cast is ’cause the TNG cast retired and moved on… Paramount Pictures can’t think of new ideas so they decided to reboot the series. I’m a huge Star Trek fan and would like this franchise to improve. When you come to think of it, I’m glad JJ is leaving “Star Trek” for “Star Wars” ’cause it’s a good opportunity to improve the franchise. I didn’t like JJ behind Star Trek, anyway. Way too much lens flare and the CGI gave me a headache.

Star Trek needs to be saved, big time. I don’t like where it’s going. It’ll be nice if we get one last Next Generation movie, though. That’ll be great if Picard and the rest of the gang will reunite for one last film but I don’t see that happening anytime soon sadly. Seems like the entire TNG cast is done. They spent most of their lives working on the franchise so I guess a retirement for all of them is well-deserved.

I love Star Trek. I grew up on the franchise. Have been a Trekkie ever since I was a child.


The first 9 minutes of JJ Abrams “Star Trek Into Darkness” will debut in Imax 3D – Dec. 14th…

If you have an IMAX movie theater nearby, you may get the chance to see the trailer of the next Star Trek movie directed by JJ Abrams, “Star Trek Into Darkness” in Imax 3D. They will also show the first 9 minutes of the film. If they are willing to show the first 9 minutes of the film, there’s gotta be something serious, they want to show off. Maybe this will be the confirmation, whether or not Khan will be the main villain? Anyhow, I’m sure somebody will bootleg the footage with an Iphone or something, so it’ll land on youtube the day after.

More on the story, here.

I’m a huge Star Trek fan, a Trekkie as some of you know. The Trek shows I mostly liked was the original, TNG, and Voyager. I didn’t really care for “Deep Space 9” or “Enterprise” but maybe I’ll re-watch them on Netflix soon. I want to re-watch all Star Trek series on Netflix soon anyway. I already re-watched the original Star Trek on there. I’ll start re-watching the Next Generation after I catch up with “Sons of Anarchy”.

Back to Star Trek, I wish they would reunite the Next Generation cast and do another film but I don’t see that happening anytime soon, sadly. The TNG cast deserve to go out with one last great film. Something better than, “Star Trek: Nemesis” which was alright but nothing special.


Report: “Star Trek – The Next Generation” is now streamable on Netflix…

Announced today, all 7 seasons of “Star Trek – The Next Generation” are now streamable for Netflix along with “Voyager” and “Enterprise”. I’m such a huge Star Trek “TNG” fan and I’m looking forward to watching this show all over again.

I’m glad Paramount let Netflix stream Star Trek series, because Star Trek still deserves to get known. Star Trek isn’t for everyone, but I suggest people to try and get into it. I’m a big Trekkie, and quite proud of it too. Have been a Trekkie ever since I was a child.

Thanks to Paramount and Netflix for this. I’m excited!


Thought: Will the Star Trek movies get re-released into 3-D????

It is no surprise to me that all 6 Star Wars movies will be getting re-released to theaters for 3-D. I’m sure it’s no surprise to everyone else either. My question is, will Paramount Pictures, do the same for the first 10 Star Trek films? The original Star Trek and the Next Generation movies? I think that will happen down the road. There’s a few Star Trek films that I think would be really cool in 3-D like, “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” for starters, that’s a big special effects movie. “The Wrath of Khan” and “The Voyage Home” would look great in 3-D as well. As for the Next Generation movies, I can see, “Generations”, “First Contact” and “Nemesis” looking cool in 3-D. I’m sure Paramount has this planned out. Star Trek in 3-D won’t happen right away but definitely sometime down the road.
