Star Trek TV Series Reboot To Launch 2017 On CBS All Access!

When science fiction shows or just by shows such as lost in space and Flash Gordon, Star Trek game blazing across our screens. I was such a fan that I remember standing in line, these were the days before Fandango, for the first Star Trek movie on July 3rd in one of the hottest days in Miami ever. I stood in line from 1 o’clock in the afternoon until at 7:30 showing so I will be sure to get a seat.
Now cBS is going to use Star Trek to bolster its new streaming service. I guess I will come up with the $5.95 monthly fee for at least a month to make sure the show is up to the Star Trek legacy. Having the producers of limitless as those bringing it to the screen I feel that it has a head start already on greatness.
I hope I will get to rekindle my love affair with Star Trek television I still happily watch reruns of Star Trek The Next Generation from BBC America, even though I have seen those episodes at least 10 times. Jimmy that tells you a show is great. So I hope that CBS energizes and makes it so.

This is the reboot of the logo for the new series. I like that it has a certain darkness and maybe we'll match the times we live in. That's what Star Trek was so good at.

George Lucas Delivers a Verdict on Force Awakens

Like any very creative person, George Lucas can be an odd duck. I remember back in the 90s he was interviewed by Katie Couric. It was right after the last Star Wars movie has come out. She asked him that if someone paid him a billion dollars would he make another Star Wars movie. He answered that he was not Star Trek. I thought that was not just a stupid answer but offensive too many of the fans of Star Trek and Star Wars. So is answer here is typical George Lucas. I have tickets to go see the movie on December 21st at the El Capitan which has been redone by Disney for the showing of the Star Wars, the force awakens and I will report back on my opinion of the movie.

Leonard Nimoy’s Funeral was Free Of Westboro Baptist Church Protesters Because They Couldn’t Figure Out Location

Before I was Bar Mitzvahed, as a little kid there was a portion of the service on Yom Kippur where my dad always said don’t look at the altar. Of course, like many children I did the opposite. So did Leonard Nimoy, and when gene Roddenberry said he wanted some sort a greeting Vulcan to Vulcan, Leonard Nimoy remembered what the Cohens, or priesthood of the Jewish religion did when we were not allowed to see as children. My dad and I would laughed as this was our little secret when watching Star Trek. I like to say I’m a second generation science fiction nerd.
I’ve said this before on my blog, his passing felt like a member of the family had passed. I am so grateful that these usurpers of religion were unable to tarnish his funeral.

The Westboro Baptist Church was unable to protest the funeral of “Star Trek” actor Leonard Nimoy because they couldn’t find where it was being held.

The death of Nimoy, a legendary actor known mostly for his iconic role as Spock in the classic “Star Trek” franchise, affected many people last week, but the members of the Westboro Baptist Church apparently decided that they wanted picket his funeral. While Nimoy was a more quiet and low-key public figure, the WBC made the announcement that they were planning to make his funeral a spectacle.

Now, the group of protesters has taken to Twitter to announce that they were unable to picket the late actor’s funeral because they couldn’t figure out the location. They also made a reference to Nimoy’s co-star William Shatner, who had previously announced that he couldn’t make it to the funeral due to a charity ball.

“Leonard Nimoy’s funeral is today, but nobody is sharing WHERE,” the group tweeted. “So Westboro AND @WilliamShatner can’t attend.”

The folks at Westboro Baptist Church are known for protesting the funerals of celebrities, fallen soldiers, and other public figures and holding up signs that say, “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for 9/11.” It’s not entirely clear why the group wanted to protest Nimoy’s funeral in the first place.
