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…

7210_785599758123198_1320415255_n

 

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.

Happy 82nd Birthday to William Shatner!!!

I usually wish the Shat, a happy birthday every year in my blog. Why? Because he’s a hero and inspiration to me. Love the guy! I’ve looked after him, my whole life. He is a man of many talents. He has done everything you could think of in the entertainment business. He was an actor most notably, but he was also a spoken word singer, TV show host, comedian, science fiction writer & non fiction author, former professional wrestler (yes, he worked for the WWF for a little bit), and he was many other things. I don’t know how he does it, but the man keeps himself busy, all the time. That’s part of why he is such an inspiration. He’s a work horse for sure. Plus, he’s an entertaining and funny as hell guy. He treated his career in a positive direction too. Happy Birthday, Shat! Enjoy yourself, where ever you are!

About Obama’s controversial Jedi Mind-Meld comment…

JediaMindMeld

I haven’t been following the President’s “Sequester” and budget cut stuff, ’cause all that is a load of crock, and I’m tired of Obama and his bullshit. He continues to prove himself that he is not qualified for the President’s job. During the press conference, not only that he pissed off the Republicans, he also pissed off the Star Wars and Star Trek community by saying this: ““Even though most people agree… I’m presenting a fair deal, the fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi mind-meld with these folks and convince them to do what’s right,” Read more about it, here.

I know he didn’t mean it, and it was a mistake, since he wasn’t reading off a teleprompter but that just shows that he is crap at speaking. He maybe good at reading, but take the teleprompter away from him, he is horrible and you can’t understand a word he’s saying.

I think what he really meant was that he was referring to, “Vulcan Mind Meld“, somehow he thought it was a Star Wars thing. To those who aren’t into Star Trek that much, if you don’t know what a mind meld is, it’s a power that is used for Vulcan’s only. You know how when Spock goes up to somebody and puts his hand on someone’s face? That’s a mind meld. It’s a power to exchange people’s thoughts. I understand Obama’s point bringing Mind Meld into this, but bringing Jedi into it by mistake will just get him in trouble.

Plus, what he said about Republicans is even more offensive. He wants the Republicans to side with him and we shouldn’t have to. It should be our right.

Obama’s a piece of shit.

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.

I don’t understand the hate for Star Trek…

Last night on Netflix, I just finished watching “Season 1” of the original Star Trek series. I have watched the original series too many times as a kid, I just haven’t seen it in a long while, so it’s nice to start re-watching it. I’m a Trekkie. Proud of it and not ashamed to be a die-hard of this franchise. Over the years, people would bash Star Trek. A lot of people said that Star Trek is boring. I don’t think Star Trek is boring. I think the stories are pretty masterful and intelligent. I think people have a hard time getting into Trek ’cause they look at it like it’s more of a “drama” or “soap opera” mixed with “science fiction”. I also think people don’t like Star Trek ’cause the science is more detailed and they don’t understand it.

Don’t get me wrong, there are things I don’t like about Trek. For example, I wasn’t a fan of “Deep Space Nine”, “Enterprise” with Scott Bakula, and there were a few Star Trek movies I didn’t like. I loved most of the Star Trek movies except for, “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier”, “Star Trek: Insurrection”, and “Star Trek: Nemesis”.

I’m a fan of the original Trek series, I loved The Next Generation, and Voyager was good too. I plan to re-watch all those shows on Netflix. It’s great that Paramount gave Netflix the permission to stream all the series ’cause I was going to start collecting the series on DVD. Don’t have to now. The picture and sound is just as good on Netflix.

Star Trek is cool. Love that franchise more than Star Wars.

A UK man’s custom Star Trek home gets destroyed after a heated divorce…

A man named, Tony Alleyne, who is from the UK, is a big time, Star Trek, geek. Yes, he’s a die hard fan. Tony is so obsessed with Star Trek, that he even turned his home into a Starship Enterprise. It took years and lots of money to build. His wife couldn’t stand it, so she divorced him and now she wants to sell the home since she owns it. Since she’s selling the home, Tony has no choice but to destroy all the Star Trek stuff he built in it.

Tony admits he was upset and he plans to rebuild, when he gets his own home.

Read the full story and see photos of the home, here.

In my opinion, his ex-wife is a pretty selfish bitch that couldn’t appreciate his love for, Star Trek. Lessons learned, Tony, never marry a woman who is not a die hard, Trekkie. That would be a pretty cool house to live in, I would go crazy over it, since I’m a Trekkie myself.

If he wants to get married again, then he should find a woman who loves Star Trek as much as he does, that way he would not have to go through this again.
