Best Star Trek episode EVER

People often say to me: “Repeater, you’re a geek, right? What would be your favorite episode of Star Trek?” Duh … the best episode EVER was “Project Iceberg.” It took place towards the tail-end of the Enterprise’s 5-year mission, when the universe was running out of ideas. Still it’s a flawless story, with only a […]

To boldly go back and tweak the contrast… where no sharpness has been before!

Entertainment Weekly has some “exclusive video” showing a comparison of the original and remastered versions of the Star Trek: The Next Generation pilot episode.

Set phasers for “saving”

I would watch that TV show

In an interview over at, Jonathan “Number 1” Frakes answers questions about his projects past & present. Did they ask about Star Trek? You betcha, and the answer is enough to make one pine for alternate universes that are a little less cruel. Here is his answer regarding the possibility of a new Trek […]
