We're headed back to the Enterprise for a new voyage, blandly titled Star Trek Beyond.


Star Trek 3's director, Justin Lin, confirmed the name of his film on Twitter and revealed this first look at a costume. We don't know much about Star Trek Beyond, but we do know that Simon Pegg is co-writing the script, and he's said he's written a role for Idris Elba, rumored to be an original villain. The title may be lacking, but I'm still looking forward to July 8, 2016.

Star Trek alumnus, Nichelle Nichols is going where no one (save a couple dozen) have gone before. In September 2015, the 82-year-old actress will be joining a NASA mission to SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy), a space telescope that operates 50,000 miles above the Earth.

While it isn't space exactly, it's still an awesome mission for the Enterprise's former communication officer. This is Nichols' second time on this type of flight,

I was on a similar flight, the first airborn observatory, back in 1977. It’s an amazing experience, you get a totally different perspective than from earth.
Let's just hope there are longer skirts in NASA, that Starfleet uniform has got to be uncomfortable.

This awesome fan-made trailer explores what a movie pitting Star Wars bad guys against Star Trek good guys might actually look like.  Kirk, if you thought Khan was bad news, good luck with these guys!

Alex Kurtzman, one of the producers of the Star Trek film reboots, is bringing the classic scifi series back to television in 2017! CBS has picked up a new take on Star Trek which will premiere in January 2017, with subsequent episodes available for streaming on CBS' paid digital streaming service, CBS All Access:

This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before — directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access. We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic Star Trek, and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series. (Marc DeBevoise, executive vp of CBS Digital Media)


The series will supposedly modernize the Star Trek universe while maintaining the franchise's commitment to exploring contemporary issues and themes.

I, for one, will adopt a stance of casual optimism, though I don't know about spending $5.99/month for their streaming service. How long until it comes to Netflix, you think?
