captain’s log

It all starts with writing. Every Star Trek episode; every Star Trek movie; every Trek novel, story, tie-in – this very magazine – all of it starts with writing – with words, typed on a laptop or written on paper; scrawled in a notebook or stabbed into a cell phone; scribbled on the back of a bus ticket or batted about in a writers’ room. Later – often in concert with the writing – come sketches and designs and actors and filmmakers, all of which are vitally important to the creation of this thing we call Trek; but without the bedrock of writing underpinning it, none of it can be properly assembled. Not the most profound insight, I know – in fact it barely even qualifies as an insight – but one…

disco intro

Save the date: Star Trek: Discovery will be back in full effect on Thursday January 17, 2019, as the show’s hotly anticipated second season gets underway. Streaming on CBS All Access in the United States – with international broadcast, including Netflix, following the day after each episode debuts – Discovery’s sophomore season is preceded by the four previously announced Star Trek: Short Treks. These comprise “Runaway,” featuring Mary Wiseman as Ensign Tilly, and “Calypso,” starring Aldis Hodge as new character Craft (both already aired); “The Brightest Star” (air date December 6), in which Doug Jones portrays a young Saru yearning to find out what lies beyond his Kelpien village; and the Rainn Wilson-directed-and-starring “The Escape Artist” (air date January 3, 2019), which sees Harry Mudd up to his old tricks, and…

q comics conflict

The crews of four incarnations of Star Trek will cross paths beginning in January, in the biggest Trek comic book crossover event ever attempted. Published by IDW, the six-issue Star Trek: The Q Conflict will feature the crews of Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, in an epic adventure written by Scott and David Tipton and drawn by David Messina. The catalyst for this cataclysmic crossover is a battle between godlike beings that threatens the entire galaxy. “This is it – the biggest Star Trek series ever, spanning starships, centuries, and galaxies!” said Scott Tipton. “All of Starfleet’s most legendary officers join together for the first time against some of the greatest threats they’ve ever faced. It’s like nothing you’ve seen before!”…

star trek holiday gift guide calendars, keepsakes, and other cool stuff

CALENDARS Universe Publishing has six Star Trek 2019 calendars on offer – four wall calendars, plus weekly and daily ones. Perhaps the most striking of the wall calendars is Star Trek Posters by Juan Ortiz, featuring 12 ready-to-frame retro pop posters by the fan-favorite artist, each illustrating a particular original series episode, including “Mirror, Mirror,” “Arena,” and “The Trouble with Tribbles.” But the landscape-format Ships of the Line is also stunning, featuring beautifully rendered illustrations of the U.S.S. Enterprise, the Enterprise-E, the U.S.S. Discovery, the U.S.S. Voyager (at Deep Space 9, no less), and more besides, depicted by the likes of Doug Drexler, John Eaves, and Alain Rivard. The two remaining Universe Publishing wall calendars are a Star Trek: Discovery one and an original series one, both of which feature stills from…

ornaments and lights

From Hallmark comes an array of Keepsake Ornaments, based on both the original series and Star Trek: Discovery. From the former, there is a U.S.S. Enterprise metal ornament, boasting “unparalleled artistry and exceptional detail”; a “The Naked Time” ornament, based on the moment where a rapier-brandishing Sulu attacks Kirk and featuring dialogue from that scene; and a tricorder ornament, the screen of which lights up, and which also features dialogue. From Discovery, there is a U.S.S. Discovery that lights up at the press of a button. Speaking of things that light up, ThinkGeek, Forbidden Planet, and other outlets are stocking the Wand Company’s original series Phaser-Controlled Rock Mood Light, first available at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. In “Survival” mode, pointing the phaser at the rock makes it glow red, while…

plushies, pins, and pants

Hallmark has a handful of new Trek Itty Bittys on offer. From the original series’ “Mirror, Mirror” come four-inch tall plush renderings of Mirror Kirk and Mirror Spock, while from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan comes a twin set of four-inch tall Kirk and Khan. There’s also a set of four Itty Bittys Collectible Enamel Pins: Spock, Kirk, Uhura, and Bones. Finally, for that post-Christmas dinner moment when you need to slip into something more comfortable, ThinkGeek has some fetching Lounge Pants available. The Star Trek Tokyo Invasion Lounge Pant features a pattern inspired by the artwork created for the Japanese market when the original series debuted there in the 1970s, while the Star Trek: The Next Generation Uniform Lounge Pant is inspired by the TNG uniforms and comes…
