If you were to pick a favorite from the five Star Trek films celebrating anniversaries this year, which would you choose? Star Trek: The Motion Picture, perhaps? Forty years old this year, it launched Trek onto the silver screen, and was possessed of a (some would say somewhat ponderous) grandeur the original series could have only dreamt of. Or what about Star Trek III: The Search for Spock? Thirty-five years young, it featured such momentous events as the death of Kirk’s son, the death of the Enterprise, and the rebirth of the eponymous Vulcan icon. Then there’s Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, celebrating its 30th anniversary, and proving that every Star Trek film is somebody’s favorite. Or how about Star Trek Generations, which 25 years ago brought the Star Trek:…

dst rediscovered

The all-star guest list for Destination Star Trek 2019 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK on 25–27 October continues to grow, including the addition of a Star Trek guest star whose identity was thought lost to the mists of time. April Tatro played the part of shapeshifter Isis – feline-human companion of Gary Seven – in the original series episode “Assignment: Earth” – a fact that was only rediscovered earlier this year. For many years the non-speaking role was associated with another actress, Victoria Vetri, until in 2018 it was established that Vetri hadn’t in fact portrayed the character. Then, early in 2019, Larry Nemecek and The Trek Files team unearthed documents in Gene Roddenberry’s archive that pointed to actress and contortionist April Tatro as the genuine Isis. Tatro will be appearing…

STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE Story by: Alan Dean Foster Screenplay by: Harold Livingston Directed by: Robert Wise Released: December 7, 1979 “The Human adventure is just beginning…” Star Trek Magazine: What were your initial thoughts when you first got the call to confirm that The Motion Picture was going to happen? William Shatner: If I remember correctly, there were a lot of conversations about doing a variety of things. There was going to be a movie for television; there was going to be a series. So when they made a pronouncement about the best of all possible worlds – which was a big movie by an A-list director – I was thrilled. STM: The Motion Picture was a massive hit, breaking box office records. Were you happy to be back in the role of Kirk? “When they made…

rocket man!

It takes a rocket man to launch a rocket lab – and it takes another rocket man to introduce him. When William Shatner, Star Trek’s original Captain James T. Kirk, opened private company Rocket Lab’s new high-volume production facility in Auckland, New Zealand, Rocket Lab chief executive Peter Beck set the stage. “There’s one very special guest here today,” Beck said. “He sparked a generation of space enthusiasm and he is an icon. Not just with the space industry, but globally. “I used to watch him when I was five years old bouncing on my father’s knee in front of the television, and I used to admire his exploration of the universe, boldly going where no man had gone before… I can only imagine going back in time, tapping on that little boy’s…

space... the final frontier

Rocket Lab chief executive Peter Beck wouldn’t call himself a Trekkie, but he does “own a set of Star Trek cufflinks.” On top of that, Beck keeps a set of original series DVDs at work: “We play them in the lunch room during lunch.” The average age of Rocket Lab staff being 32, Beck found that without the discs, many employees didn’t understand his inevitable workplace references to Trek. Growing up in Invercargill, New Zealand, Beck watched William Shatner and his Star Trek co-stars’ adventures from a young age. “I certainly enjoyed the original series, and that’s the series I grew up with,” he told Star Trek Magazine following Shatner’s visit. Star Trek was part of the landscape that inspired Beck’s interest in space. “I’ve always been into space, for as…
