Star Trek Discovery The Sound of Thunder Review

It’s another Saru-themed episode this week on Star Trek: Discovery! This week’s episode, “The Sound of Thunder,” is all about Saru becoming the savior of his Kelpien race, delivering them from the insidious Great Balance the Baul have instilled over thousands of years.

It’s always great to see Saru, but it’s been especially amazing to see Saru truly come into his own in this episode. In fact, we learned a lot about Saru and the Kelpiens.

Star Trek Discovery Saints of Imperfection Review

Let’s get into what went down this week.

CBS is teaming up with Nickelodeon to develop a new Star Trek animated series that will be geared towards kids. It would be the first new Star Trek project to debut outside of CBS All Access, which is the home for all the new properties taking place in the final frontier. Read More »

At the beginning of 2019, news came that a fourth Star Trek film featuring the younger crew of the USS Enterprise had been shelved. The culprit was reportedly contract disputes involving Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. However, not everyone is giving up hope on the sequel coming together.

Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto was on a Television Critics Association panel for his upcoming AMC series NOS4A2.

Star Trek Discovery An Obol for Charon

This latest Star Trek: Discovery episode, “An Obol for Charon,” was a real emotional doozy. This has got to be one of the best episodes of Discovery so far.

Star Trek Discovery Point of Light Review

At first I thought this week’s Star Trek: Discovery episode, “Point of Light,” was a little all over the place. But the more I reflect on this, I think this episode should be thought of as a building block. Did it make a lot of narrative sense? Maybe not. But does it set the stage for what’s going down the rest of the season? Absolutely.

joe cornish turned down star trek

In 2013, Joe Cornish was primed to be the next successful indie director who would make the leap to the big-budget blockbuster. J.J.

But Cornish turned down Star Trek. Justin Lin would take on directing duties of Star Trek Beyond, while Cornish wouldn’t come out with another film until 2019’s The Kid Who Would Be King. But why did the British filmmaker turn down what would have likely been his big break? Six years later, Cornish finally reveals why.
