Jordan Schlansky’s TED Talk

Jordan Schlansky’s TED Talk

From Conan’s cutting room floor comes another hilarious bit with his associate producer Jordan Schlansky, as he goes off on an seemingly endless rant about why Star Wars is so much better than Star Trek – and nobody stops him. Somebody get this guy a lozenge.

Star Trek Goes to Church

It dates back to 2011, but we couldn’t help but share this fantastic medley of some of the classic theme music from the Star Trek universe, performed impeccably on the pipe organ by Cantor Ralph Leinen at St Donatus church in Aachen Brand, Germany.

Star Trek: Discovery (Trailer 2)

Our second look at the new Star Trek series is still pretty light on plot, but it does a good job showing off more of the cast of characters, enemies, ships, props, and costumes, all of which have a look that’s pretty different than any other Trek to date. (Thanks Jack!)

Filmmaker Patrick Collins took footage from the 1979 film Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and combined it with Daft Punk’s score from TRON: Legacy, recutting what was originally a slow and plodding 2+ hour film into a 22-minute audiovisual masterwork.

A behind the scenes look at the Smithsonian’s restoration of the original model of the U.S.S. Enterprise, used on screen in all 79 original episodes of Star Trek. The care that went into bringing this sci-fi icon back to life over the course of 2 years is truly impressive.

QMx 2016 Spaceship Models

QMx 2016 Spaceship Models

Tested visited Quantum Mechanix’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con to look at the toymaker’s upcoming spaceship scale models. The highlight of the booth is definitely the cutaway Millennium Falcon, but the Star Trek Beyond ship and Star-Lord’s Milano are awesome too.

Star Trek: The Beginning of the End

Star Trek: The Beginning of the End

The universe is under attack by The Red Empire, a race of robots intent on wiping out all organic life. It’s up to the crew of the NX-01 Enterprise to stop them. Jürgen Kaiser’s stop-motion fan film is an incredible achievement and a true labor of love. (In German w/subtitles)

Star Trek is a Submarine Series

Star Trek is a Submarine Series

The Film Theorists’ Frame By Frame argues that Star Trek’s creators cribbed several tropes from submarine films for his TV show, such as mutiny and making blind decisions. We think that these elements are present in many movies where a group of people are left on their own.

Star Trek: Beyond (Trailer 2)

The latest trailer for the new Star Trek movie reminds us that just because Fast & Furious director Justin Lin is behind the lens this time, that we can still expect the classic characters and alien threats we know and love. Here’s hoping they didn’t forget the humor.

2017 Star Trek Series (Teaser)

CGP Grey looks at one of the most desired and elusive pieces of technology from the Star Trek universe, and explains how even if transporter beams did exist, we’d have to die and be reincarnated every time we used them.

Star Trek Beyond (Teaser)

Star Trek Beyond (Teaser)

J.J. Abrams was too busy in that other Star universe to direct the new Star Trek film, but Justin Lin’s (Fast & Furious) franchise debut looks like a summer romp that should satisfy action fans more than any Trek movie before. Let’s hope the sci-fi and humor come through.

Eclectic Method: Jean-Luc Picard

Musical mashup makers Eclectic Method make it so with this tune, assembled from sound bytes from everyone’s favorite Starfleet Captain. We especially enjoyed the little chiptune tribute to The Next Generation’s theme song.

Is Star Wars Nerdier than Star Trek?

Is Star Wars Nerdier than Star Trek?

Capt. Picard and the NCC-1701-D fight Darth Vader and the Death Star in a battle to determine who’s dorkier. Is it the jargon-spewing slumber party or the cult of rave toys? All we know is we wish there was a Star Riker show.
