As this is an anniversary of the sci-fi giant, readers will be bombarded with punny headlines:
Liftoff for the Starship Enterprise
News about the next Star Trek movie in production:
Rachel Nichols. According to the article, Nichols plays a cadet at Starfleet Academy in J.J. Abrams upcoming Star Trek movie. Here is an excerpt of the article.
"I was a redhead for 'Star Trek' and 'G.I. Joe.' For the first time in my life I had to dye my hair," she said. "In all my years of modeling I never had to dye my hair. I worked with J.J. before in 'Alias,' and he asked really nicely if I would dye my hair.
How 'Star Trek' technology is not that far fetched:
According to experts, the sci-fi scenarios depicted in The Matrix, and Star Trek's 'Holodeck' are now comprehendible realities in the future.
What's happening with the new Trek game (including annoying questions):
One inherited flaw that I have found in current Star Trek games is that the ships are not in scale with one another. For example, in Bridge Commander, the Defiant was as large as a Galaxy class saucer section, which is not canon. What will Cryptic's plans be with scaling of the ships?
We have been working on that recently, and we are in the process of defining ship scale and size ratios. Most of the time it is not a problem. But there are a few exceptionally small ships, such as shuttlecrafts, that become problematic. At true scale, they become nearly unperceivable when you are flying a ship the size of a Galaxy class, and that's simply not fun.
And when the next double dips are available:
