for-love-of-spock-dvdBegun before his father’s death as part of Star Trek‘s 50th Anniversary, Adam Nimoy takes a look at Leonard Nimoy‘s life and career, most notably his role as Spock. Including interviews from a wide swath of new and classic Trek actors, Nimoy interviews William Shatner, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, and Zoe Saldana, along with famous fans of Star Trek including Jim Parsons, Jason Alexander, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Although it doesn’t go into much depth about Nimoy’s life or his career, there are some nice anecdotes here and some fun classic stills and footage from his early career. Fans of Star Trek should enjoy themselves.

50 Years of Star Trek

50-years-of-star-trekMore notable for all the people not included than those who are a part of the special, The History Channel’s 50 Years of Star Trek takes the audience on a mostly cursory look back over Star Trek‘s history in both television and film. With as much time spent on seemingly randomly put together panels of celebrities and experts as the actual history of the franchise much is glossed over (not much love for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine here). The documentary is interesting, but hardly anything special as the commentary often takes precedence over the history. The result is that comedian Kevin Pollak gets more screentime than any Star Trek actor other than perhaps Jeri Ryan (who is also included on one of the panels).

Set after the events of Star Trek Beyond, the new IDW comic series picks up with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise dispersed across the galaxy in new assignments. The first issue of the new series jumps around to allow us to check in on each member of the bridge crew (and their engineer, of course).

The third time’s the charm. After a lackluster first film and a clusterfuck of a sequel, the rebooted franchise finally gets it right with Star Trek Beyond. No longer awkwardly straddling the original and new continuities, the latest Star Trek film offers a wholly original story and the first really good movie in the Star Trek franchise in 20 years.

star-trek-next-gen-moviesMuch like Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture 50th Anniversary Collection, the Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture 50th Anniversary Collection is a basic re-issue of the 2009 Blu-ray release collecting all four Star Trek: The Next Generation feature films in a single collection. As with the other release, it’s a bit of a mixed bag with some, but certainly not all, of the extras available in the movies’ individual home video releases.

The highlight of the collection is Star Trek: First Contact (the second, and by far the best, of the Next Gen movies). Also included are the problematic Star Trek: Generations (which struggles to unite the original and Next Generation franchises), the disappointing Star Trek: Nemesis (which wastes the Romulans only big screen appearance), and the almost completely forgettable Star Trek: Insurrection.

As you might have noticed we’ve had our share of technical glitches over the past 24-hours, but, as Gomez Addams would say, we’re feeling much better now. Getting back to content here’s a little list to wind up the Star Trek mania which has griped the site over the past fortnight.

Ah Star Trek the franchise that’s given us Tribbles, Klingons, and a ship named Enterprise. The new relaunch of the series, Star Trek, is the twelfth official film of the franchise which has had it’s share of ups and downs. Let’s take a look at the seven best films which taught us that space really is the finally frontier. We begin with…

7. Star Trek: The Motion Picture

McCoy: “Spock, you haven’t changed a bit. You’re just as warm and sociable as ever.”
Spock: “Nor have you, doctor, as your continued predilection for irrelevancy demonstrates.”

Say what you want about the first film it has its heart in the right place. Yes it’s overlong, it has too many characters, and the reveal of the identity of V’ger at the end is more than a little anti-climatic. Even with these flaws to the film’s plot it gets the characters right and gives us many fine moments in the return of a franchise.
