Star Trek Discovery - The Wolf Inside




CBS have released Star Trek Discovery's 11th episode - The Wolf Inside.


 It turns out Burnham and Tyler locate a bunch of rebels.... but to spell it out


Aliens are a diverse bunch. Its not every day you run into Andorians, Vulcans, and Klingons!



Among them is Sarek, who mind-melds with Burnham, to confirm she isn't the real mirror captain?


Its a sweet trick, Vulcan Mind melds.... c'os Sarek timing is neat...  Meanwhile the planet is being heavily bombarded, at least some things never change in Star Trek.





 CBS spared no expense this time round. What do you think of Star Trek Discovery's bridge set designs? Are you enjoying Discovery's new trek through the stars or do you prefer the older ones?


Live Long and Prosper

BEST SCI-FI TELEVISION SERIES LIST

Happy 2018, Trekkers! Here is a Best Sci-Fi TV Series list of all Time from Total Nerd at Ranker.com. Do you agree with the configuration of this Sci Fi List?

At No 1, The Expanse rules the Galaxy over Star Trek: The Original Series trailing at No 6. Great space, thanks to SyFy, FX, CBS, Netflix and the CW, new Sci Fi shows premiere every year..... yet popular Science Fiction series like Star Trek Discovery (on Netflix tonight) continue to grow fan bases.

 Netflix has also contributed to the science fiction genre with their original series Stranger Things, which was met with rave reviews. You just can't get away from all this hyperspace and warpspeed. Can you? Curiously Star Trek Discovery is languishing in this Sci-Fi list.... but your geek will fix that now, won't it!

All you have to do is vote!  So make it so!

Nerd long and Prosper.

Star Trek Family


Gabriel Lorca is played by Jason Isaacs who stars in CBS latest prequel Star Trek universe - 10 years before Captain Kirk. Here's a great shot of Isaac's family smiling for London's 61st London Film Premiere.

 Holding Star Trek: The Original Series in remarkably high esteem, Jason Isaacs' initial reaction to being asked to appear in Star Trek: Discovery was to turn down the offer, adamant that he didn't want to participate in a horribly diluted version of the series that he respected so much.

"But then," he continued, "I set up a Skype, a slightly reluctant Skype, with these guys, and they had a great story to tell. They had a great character to play. And so, I shrugged off any of the yolk of the past and just jumped in to play this, to do this story."


So, all I meant was that I don't think about any of that stuff, because I couldn't go to work if I felt like the ghost of Bill Shatner and Patrick Stewart were breathing down my costume (laughter), and that there were 20 million people watching to see whether I cross my legs or press the left button or the right button.


Family is special. What are you doing this Christmas? Heres Wil Wheaton aka Wesley Crusher four days ago at a Star Wars movie!


“I loved #TheLastJedi!,” Wheaton tweeted out after the premiere. “It hit all the right notes for me, and seeing it in the Chinese Theater, surrounded by my fellow nerds was glorious. The Force was with us.
“Oh, and I went in costume for the first time ever, because I am a damn adult and I get to decide what that means.”


Have you seen Star Wars the Last Jedi? Were you one of Jedi or the Sith? Did you wear your uniform? Spot any Trekkies hiding in the audience wearing a Starfleet uniform? Star Trek TNG Star Wil Wheaton did!

Live Long and Merry Christmas everyone
