The early buzz is strong for Star Trek Beyond. Oddly, the film may not screen in certain territories for critics, but considering the first wave of reviews are almost as positive as they were for J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 reboot, maybe that’ll change. Inheriting the director’s chair from Abrams is Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), and another trailer has been released for Lin’s sequel.
Below, watch the final Star Trek Beyond trailer.

In the U.S., Star Trek fans interested in Bryan Fuller‘s new series will have no choice but to subscribe to CBS All Access. It’s a major play to get TV viewers to sign up for CBS’ new streaming service, and a very smart one — Trek lovers are a devoted bunch, and if checking out a promising-new Trek series means paying for yet another service, you can bet a great many of them will grit their teeth and fork over the $5.99 per month.
But what about geeks outside the U.S.? How will they get to watch the new Trek when CBS All Access is only available in the States? Well, if you’ve got a Netflix account, you’re probably covered. The company has just scooped up exclusive rights to the new Star Trek show, as well as all the old Star Trek shows. Read More »

I carried two secrets with me as a I grew up.
Secret number one: I was a Star Trek fan, a kid raised by an old-school fan of the original series who made sure to plant me in front of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which arrived at the perfect time to sink its hooks into me. Half of my life was spent devouring the adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (and eventually Captain James T. Kirk and Captain Benjamin Sisko) while the other half was spent pretending to know nothing about Star Trek in public because that was a social death sentence. To admit that you liked Star Trek in the days before “geek culture” went mainstream was an easy way to be branded and ridiculed and thrown under the bus by desperate kids looking for any way to gain leverage in a hierarchy where appearances were everything.
Secret number two: I was attracted to both men and women, another social (and possibly literal) death sentence and a great way to have a target painted on your back in a world where gay marriage was still a pipe dream and “faggot” was the insult of choice.
For too long, my two secret shames weighed on me, dragging me down, triggering anxiety and depression. Years ago, I was finally able to get over myself and talk about my Star Trek fandom in public. In retrospect, it was easy and my reluctance silly. But my bisexuality remained a truth known only to handful of people, an aspect of myself that I was never ready to talk about. That changed last week, and all it took was a little help from my good ol’ friend Star Trek. Read More »

The sad truth about Star Trek is that it took original creator Gene Roddenberry stepping away for the series to find its second wind. Although he will always rightfully be considered the genius who shepherded the finest science fiction franchise in history into existence, his later vision of what Star Trek was clashed not only with other creatives, but with much of what made the original television series so great in the first place. It’s no accident that he was forced out of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, which remains arguably the best of the twelve films made so far.
But those twelve films will soon be thirteen, so it’s no accident that the new book The Fifty-Year Mission: The Complete Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek – The First 25 Years is in stores right now (the second volume arrives in August). While I’m anticipation Star Trek Beyond, this book is what is currently grabbing my attention… mainly because it reveals that Gene Roddenberry wrote a Star Trek movie where Captain Kirk fights Jesus Christ.
