♦♦♦ PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO COMPLETE OUR LISTENER SURVEY! ♦♦♦

This week, we’re Trekking Out Alex Kurtzman’s vision for Star Trek: Discovery’s second season, how Discovery’s cinematic nature could affect Star Trek on the Silver Screen, and CBS has plans for what’s after “After Trek”.

In Star Trek Online and gaming news, the Ninth Anniversary of Star Trek Online has arrived and we’ll give you all the details. And Star Trek Timelines is also celebrating an anniversary with new Borg content.

In our On Screen segment, we’re discussing the Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Debut: “Brother”, and as always, before we wrap up the show, we’ll open hailing frequencies for your incoming messages!

THIS WEEK’S COMMUNITY QUESTION

  • Does Star Trek still have a place on the Silver Screen, or have advances in television production made Star Trek movies a thing of the past?

    Kenna, we all agree with you, the omega mini game is so dull after a while, so say we all! Still those upgrades.

    Movies will be like the borg, they will adapt, but then so will tv. I think even the services (netflix,hulu,prime, etc) have a long way to go. Several shows on the new platforms have been closed down before most people even watch them.

    Fun episode everyone.

    I’m sure most fans would say that Trek stories work better on TV (or streaming) than the movies anyways, but I still believe that Trek CAN have a place on the silver screen, as long as they make the RIGHT kind of movie. So not just something that waves hi to the fans or is basically a twice-as-long Trek episode (like “Generations” or “Beyond”, the latter of which Trekkies loved but everyone else pretty much ignored). It has to be the kind of story and spectacle that can’t fully be captured even on those 60+” screen home theater systems. You HAVE to go to the movies for those kind of experiences, along with most of your non-Trekkie friends and family, who WOULDN’T sit at home and watch the ‘silly little sci-fi show’ with you, but WOULD go to that REALLY AWESOME-sounding Trek flick. Trek’s cinema future could center more on the ‘Marvel Movie’ kind of Trek stories. Which I guess are really just called “First Contact” and “Wrath of Khan”. 😉

    Is making a Trek movie that excites Trekkies and randos alike easy? Probably not. Can it still be done? I believe so. I mean, last time I checked ‘Tarantino Trek’ was still in play, right? Let’s see where that one goes.
