Star Trek: Picard Gives Us a Tale of Two Very Different Romulans, and Picard’s Hubris

Star Trek: Picard may have finally begun its quest in earnest last week, but Jean-Luc is not quite done navigating the mistakes of his post-Starfleet past. “Absolute Candor” provides that aplenty in the form of another new crewmember for team Picard – one who draws interesting parallels to one of the show’s current threats.

3D Printers Are Finally Starting to Work More Like Star Trek’s Replicators

Transporters? Spaceships that can travel at the speed of light? Star Trek introduced us to many fantastical technologies that have us looking forward to the 23rd century. But we might not have to wait that long for all the tech Captain Kirk had to play with, as 3D printing has taken another big step toward making replicators a reality. Read More >>

Star Trek: Picard Finally Finds Its Crew, in Those That Starfleet Left Behind

The first two episodes of Star Trek: Picard have carefully laid the groundwork for a future where the Federation, tired and beaten back by tragedy after tragedy, is embroiled in an existential crisis. Now, one of its most tireless advocates, the veil lifted from his eyes, is ready to do something about it – and has found a crew of likewise heroes to do so. Read More >>

Actor Duncan Regehr Discusses His Glorious Moment as Star Trek’s ‘Sex Candle Ghost’

“Sub Rosa” was a very strange episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, an old-school gothic adventure featuring a haunted candle, a ghastly Casanova, and just enough scifi nonsense to keep the whole thing from being magic. Read More >>

A History of Star Trek’s Uneasy Relationship With Androids

Sci-fi has been fascinated with sentient synthetic life since its earliest days, but Star Trek, in particular, has had quite the tumultuous history with its own consideration of androids and their place in its far future.

Jeri Ryan and Sir Patrick Stewart Discuss the Legacy of Star Trek, Spandex, and Being Memes

Nerd fame is a strange thing. The sheer passion with which people relate to you, or to something you’ve created, is a lot to handle, even for the most seasoned actor or creator. For the cast of a phenomenon like Star Trek, it must be even more overwhelming. Read More >>

When Star Trek: The Next Generation Was Bad, It Was Truly Horrendous

There aren’t just a lot of candidates for the worst episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, I would contend there are a lot of worst episodes, full stop. It’s amazing how much terrible content this show produced while simultaneously reviving the beloved franchise – there’s the racism of “Code of Honor,” the supernatural assault of “Sub Rosa,” the clip show crappiness of “Shades of Gray,” and many more. Everyone has their pick, but “Up the Long Ladder” is my dark horse contender for the title, because it manages to be racist, sexist, and terrible sci-fi, all at once. Read More >>

Jean-Luc Picard Is Back, But Is the Star Trek He Left Behind?

He’s a little older. He’s not on a starship. He’s haunted by tragedies of years past. He’s drinking a lot more wine these days. But it would be fair to say that, deep down, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is not a man truly changed when we meet him again in the premiere of Star Trek: Picard. That’s not the question we should be asking, anyway: Is it the Federation that’s changed instead? Read More >>

How to Watch Star Trek: Picard in the UK

Today is the day that we finally see the return of Jean-Luc Picard, who hasn't been seen on any sort of screen for a good 18 years. Seriously, it's been 18 years since Star Trek: Nemesis flopped at the box office, and nearly killed Star Trek for good. But after all that time we're pushing into the future of Star Trek with first entry in the Picard-centric Picard hitting the catalogue of CBS All Access over in the States. But since we are not in America we can't do that, and this is how you can watch the first episode for yourself. Read More >>

Star Trek Can Be Horny as Hell, But It’s Not as Simple as You Think

Science fiction is, in many ways, an extremely horny genre. The futures it depicts are ones where we have grown beyond the confines of our planet, reached into the stars, often met new civilisations...and promptly got the hots for them. So it should come to the surprise of no one that Star Trek, one of sci-fi’s most beloved bastions on TV, is much the same. Read More >>
