Anton Yelchin - Happy Birthday

Hello world and Friends, trekkers and trekkies. Its been two years since Anton Yelchin died on Sunday 19t June 2016. You'll remember he played Pavel Chekov, the USS Enterprise's navigator.

 "I can do zat" he yells while rushing down to the USS Enterprise's transporter to perform his miracle beam up trick (STID.) What a fun moment, I laughed because I have to admit, he was such a champion with that Russian voice and a hard act to follow.

Heres a happy snapshot of friends Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin with Zachary Quinto looking on I believe. I can't see Chris Pine. Anyway, here they are captured in a happy moment with Anton as Star Trek's cast hanging out together.


Zoe Saldana sums this moment up best.

Happy birthday Anton- in our hearts forever.

Star Trek Discovery Going Badly or Boldly?

1 Star Trek: The Original Series
2 Star Trek: The animated Series
3 Star Trek: The Next Generation
4 Star Trek: Voyager
5 Star Trek: DS9
6 Star Trek: Enterprise
7 Star Trek: Discovery

Heres a list of deep space, high tech, Star Trek TV shows, warping through space with our fab trek crews high fiving space monsters, I mean to see our heroes battling chaos in the galaxy is an absolute buzz but lets get serious. I won't take long. I promise. At least 7 of these battle cruisers were commissioned on Earth with Starfleet picking up the tab since the Federations charter in 2161. Impressive aren't they?

 So lets do some historic starship searching. Trekkers recognise creators Matt Jefferies and Andrew Probert seen here with the show's founding creator Gene Roddenberry....

 but let's not forget Bryan Fuller who some say went completely mad after co-creating Star Trek Discovery, poor chap. Oh well, nevermind, The USS Enterprise represented true hope, vast technology, and service to humankind.... which leads me to one last thing. Awards.

and here they are...

1 Emmy Award
2 Hugo Awards
3 Saturn Award
4 TV Land Awards
5 Television Critics Association Awards
6 Writers Guild of America
7 Oscars
8 Golden Globes

Star Trek has won many awards over the years because so much is right about it. Star Trek is such a cool catchy brand too with a neat ring to it. In fact I love Star Trek and wowsers now we have Star Trek Discovery.

So now heres the greatest battle of them all. Star Trek vs Discovery. Deciding which one has one has won the most Awards is just a click away, unless you already know.

How do you think Star Trek Discovery did at the Golden Globes? Going Badly or Boldly?

Live long and Prosper

Star Trek TNG - Q WHO

Stardate 42761.3
 Original Airdate:
 Writers: Maurice Hurley.
 Director: Rob Bowman.
 Season 2, Episode 41

 Star Trek TNG "Q Who" reveals a deadly encounter with the flagship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D which tucks tail and bolts. Unlike Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) crew I hear you cry, hehe. Not so in this scenario and heres why. The Omipitent Q Entity (John DeLancie) appears before Picard, abducting him in a shuttle heist. So now, the good captain is held captive but Q has good reasons. He wants to join the Enterprise-D crew!!! Picard is sceptical at first because we know Q has varying disregard for humans but heres the thing. Picard listens to Q!

 Apparently the Enterprise-D tormentor and has been banished from the Q Continuum and wants Picard on his side! Now Guinan is horrified but who cares about her, you might think? Well we'd be wrong. Guinan is 200 years old and has excellent imp instincts,lol. Okay so I'm exaggerating. But when Picard rejects Q's proposal what happens? Q throw's the Enterprise-D 7000 light years into uncharted space with just a flake of his powers, two years away from Federation territory at maximum warp. Can humans handle all that exists in this sector of the galaxy?


 Turns out Guinan fears were right, advising Picard to "turn back now!" It isn't long before we discover System J25 has planets churned up like a Borg graveyard. Guinan knew these half humanoid robotic Borg would cubes attack and thats when one appears.... Harmless at first. Until a borg beams aboard Picard's flagship. In gleefull delight Q exclaims "He's just a scout, the first of many. He's here to analyse your technology. He may attempt to gain control of the ship. I wouldn't let him." So Now Picard is alarmed "Stop!..... Mr Worf!

 Watching the Enterprise-D getting carved up and get a "bloody nose" was exciting stuff in 1987. The presence of Q and the loss of 18 crew, fans loved watching the mighty Flagship USS Enterprise NCC 1701 retreating away at 9.65 from the scary Borg? Were you one of them? Q grovelling to Picard and vice versa, who begged better, lol? The Alien antagonists in the Borg cube was clever because it was enough to hook us. Guinans chat with Picard soon makes him realise.....

Our Borg buddies will be coming. The GAME isnt over....Oh No...

Live long and Prosper!
