Whos Star Trek is it Anyways? Axanar and the ‘Starship Bridge Too Far’

The following is an opinion piece, and it’s not about Star Trek Online. With multiple fan productions trying to provide us with new classic trek in a manner tolerated by CBS,  multiple licensed video games, a new television series looking better by the day for 2017, and another alternate-universe movie due on the big screen – Star Trek is still a force in 2016. Has any of … Continue reading Whos Star Trek is it Anyways? Axanar and the ‘Starship Bridge Too Far’

Prelude to the Flagship Release: Thomas Marrone offers up a fictional insiders look at the Federations Flagship

During the great wasteland between TOS and TNG, fans turned to grey market productions of ship schematics and fandom supposition to feed our need for more Trek. Based in part on real world publications like Janes Defense Weekly- the defacto public source for military information in the 1980’s – some fan productions created entire mythologies and new ship classes around these publications.  Dreadnoughts, cruisers and even (gasp!) carriers skirted … Continue reading Prelude to the Flagship Release: Thomas Marrone offers up a fictional insiders look at the Federations Flagship

Wasted potential? Admiralty System reviewed.

Originally posted on Captain Jan's Musings:
Season 11 & Admiralty System Season 11 in Star Trek Online gave us an “Admiralty” system. It’s an equivalent of duty-officer system, except, the players get to use their ships for the ‘assignments’. So, what does it mean in reality? I could perhaps say ‘Doffing, with ship doff-cards’ and be done with it, but let’s look into it some… Continue reading Wasted potential? Admiralty System reviewed.

New Star Trek TV Series Coming in 2017

And I’m not sure how I feel about it. “Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new Star Trek TV series.”  As part of the brain-trust behind the recent reboot, I’m happy that his writing partner Orci is not involved in this ‘new series”.   No word yet what time-frame the series will exist in, or in what universe (JJ, Classic) the series … Continue reading New Star Trek TV Series Coming in 2017
