Fighting for the Federation

Apparently, "Orange is the New Black" doesn't pay that much.

Kate Mulgrew (aka Captain Janeway) is narrating a new documentary called "The Principle", which posits that the Sun really does revolve around the earth. The film is the product of Robert Sungenis, who maintains the website Galileo is Wrong (previously). Geeks are understandably confused.

More than twenty-four varieties of hasperat available!

Hasperat is a well-known spicy Bajoran food resembling a burrito. It is made using a specially prepared brine, which if made correctly causes the eyes to water and sears the tongue. Another method of serving hasperat is in a hasperat soufflé. And now, you can make hasperat at home, or any number of other tasty Star Trek treats!

"I am NOT a merry man!"

"I wasn't drawn to Worf at first... it was just another job." A quarter century after Star Trek Next Generation closed shop, what remains? Worf, that is what. Appearing for seven seasons in Next Gen, and another four in Deep Space Nine, Michael Dorn's Worf appeared in more Star Trek episodes than any other character. Infinitely quotable , a fine singer, and handy with romantic advice, Worf was a complete badass with a bat'leth. Except when he got his ass kicked. There are rumors of a Captain Worf Star Trek show--but those rumors all seem to be started by Michael Dorn. Even though everyone thought he was wrong, his fame endures.

Chief O'Brien at Work

"If you've ever felt lost and worthless, step aside, because someone else feels even more so, and his name is Chief O'Brien of the Starship Enterprise. Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation, crappy jobs, and ennui will enjoy our short-lived Chief O'Brien at Work comics." From cartoonist Jon Adams.

Gold-pressed latinum

How does economics work in a post-scarcity society - namely the United Federation of Planets? As depicted, the canon is not entirely consistent. But there are clear consequences to meeting all one's material needs with ease. Why is there money at all, for example? Does Picard's family own vineyards just for kicks?

Better than Star Trek V anyway

In 1991, Your Family Could Make Its Own Star Trek Episode In the early ’90s, Universal Studios had the absolute genius idea to partner with Paramount Pictures to bring a green-screen experience to its Orlando, Florida theme park, in which Trekkies of all shapes and sizes could dress up, act out, and be inserted into a pre-filmed, Star Tours-esque episode of The Original Series.

Picard was a bit too enthused. “You two are literally making it so!"

Ben Wyatt's Star Trek Fanfiction. Since last October, Pawnee, Indiana's most adorable curmudgeon has been writing stories about his favorite fictional characters that happen to dovetail neatly with his nonfictional life. Starting with Parks and Rec episode How a Bill Becomes a Law, his fiction extents week-by-week to comment on his life, his girlfriend-slash-wife, and the adventures of all the crew of the Starship Enterprise. He also wrote his own Star Wars remake to counter Patton Oswalt's filibustered proposal, and occasionally drops a Lord of the Rings love letter as well. His hobby is sometimes mocked by fellow co-worker April Ludgate. More fan fiction beneath the fold. [more inside]

And now, the story of Cylons who have a plan to take the sky from YOU

Credits mashups or remixes are a Youtube meme with a simple concept: create a intro sequence for one show using the music and style of another show's credits. Some drastically change the story or tone of a series, some play up similarities between two shows, some provide a more glossy intro for shows that originally relied on a title card or an unpopular credits sequence, and some just seem to happen because people really like "Ballad of Serenity."

"The series is an anti-action, existential feminist family drama"

Now, "Voyager": in praise of the Trekkiest "Trek" of all "As we mourn Abrams’ macho Star Trek obliteration, it’s a good time to revisit that most Star Trek-ian of accomplishments, Voyager, the most despised object of fanboy loathing in the franchise's history."
