    Star Trek fans have been waiting anxiously to see exactly how the relationship between Spock and Uhura develops in the sequel. But, if super-villain John Harrison has anything to do with it, the relationship is doomed to end in tragedy.

    Rare Star Trek Photos Show Green Orion Slavegirls Like You’ve Never Seen Them The original Star Trek pilot, "The Cage," included a lot more of the scenes where Vina is turned into a green Orion slavegirl who dances for Captain Pike — but they were cut because they were too saucy for prime time television. Now, some rare Trek behind-the-scenes pictures include a brand new look at the unshown parts of Vina's dance sequence. Including a part where the poor slavegirl gets whipped. Turns out being an Orion slavegirl isn't all dancing and quoting poetry. Tom Redlaw, aka Bird of...

    Zachary Quinto, best known for his roles as Sylar in the TV series "Heroes" and Spock in 2009's Star Trek film, has come out as a gay man. Until now, Zachary has never publicly spoken about his sexual orientation, but opens up about being "a gay man" in a new interview with New York Magazine. Quinto just wrapped up an eight-month run in the NYC stage revival of "Angels in America", and called the experience an eye-opener. He called his work in the off-Broadway play the "most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding." He...
  • Obama - the reluctant partisan (Obama is "Spock-like")

    BARACK OBAMA took office vowing to usher in a post-partisan era that would drain the toxic anger of the Bush years and focus the country on practical, long-overdue reforms. Like Bush, he was no doubt sincere in wanting to unite the country. Unlike Bush, he has governed in a manner largely consistent with that ideal. A lot of good it’s done him: Washington is more poisonous than ever. And as Congress courts disaster by threatening to default on the national debt, Obama must marvel at his plight. Practically a caricature of Spock-like rationality and sober caution, he’s presiding over a...

    “Meet the Press with David Gregory” was the #1 Sunday public affairs show again last week, with a 660K Total Viewer lead over #2 CBS’ “Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer.” But the bigger story is the loss of viewers of ABC’s #3 “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.” A year ago (Dec. 20, 2009) as the show was preparing for a host change, “This Week” drew 2.79M Total Viewers. Last Sunday it drew 1.91M — down -46% in one year. NBC and CBS were up year-over-year. “FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace“, was down slightly year-over year.

    The Leftwing extremist group called 'The Southern Poverty Law Center' of Montgomery, Alabama has with one stroke of the pen smeared conservatives and Patriots in its new, infamous 'blacklist' it entitles, 'Meet the Patriots.' Among those it includes in the blacklist are some of the most reputable conservative Patriots in America today, such as U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), federal judge and Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), Gun Owners of America (GOA) chief Larry Pratt, Fox News personality Glenn Beck, and U.S. Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), among others.

So I get stuck looking at it and I’ve got a pretty good idea what it’s about. I hear a bunch of libtard writers are saying Obama is like that Spock guy. Well, I kind of see their point when it comes to him having funny ears and being a bit like a robot. But other than that, I don’t get it. Spock seems way smarter than...

    Concluding a Thursday NBC Nightly News story on summer movies, correspondent George Lewis previewed the new Star Trek film, set to open on Friday, and found it relevant to highlight how “some Trekkies have compared the Spock character, the product of a mixed marriage between a human and a Vulcan, to President Obama.” Those “some Trekkies” would be Newsweek's Steve Daly, author of last week's cover story, “We’re All Trekkies Now,” who proposed in a soundbite: “In a certain sense, Spock the character has dealt with some of the same prejudices and problems that our new President does.” In...

    Look at J.J. Abrams using his fancy sci-fi connections. After collaborating on his upcoming Star Trek reboot, Abrams has signed Leonard Nimoy to join the cast of his Fox baby, Fringe. The 78-year-old Trek icon will play William Bell, Walter Bishop's former lab partner-turned-millionaire founder of Massive Dynamic. "It was a delight to work with Mr. Nimoy on Star Trek," J.J. tells me. "The idea that he will play the mysterious, much-referenced William Bell is a thrill. I know I sound like a goofy fan boy, but I can't help it: Leonard is an icon of the genre and such...

    Interesting bit of light news in a heavy news cycle. The first images from J.J. Abrams' reboot of the Star Trek franchise have been released. Initial screenings of the movie have apparently been so positive that they've moved the release from Winter 2008 to Summer 2009. The first picture includes, from left to right, Chekov, Kirk, Scottie, McCoy, Sulu and Uhura.

Like pretty much everything else they do, the liberals are targeting the good guys in the white hats and chumming up to the bad guys in the black hats. As I write this column, protesters with the anti-military liberal group Code Pink are waging campaigns of defamation, vandalism, harassment and intimidation against the United States Marines. Before this there was Rush Limbaugh, the godfather of the talk radio industry, who had to spend 10 days atomizing the...

    SAN DIEGO - Leonard Nimoy isn't through with Spock yet. The 76-year-old actor will don his famous pointy ears again to play the role in an upcoming "Star Trek" film due out Christmas 2008. "This is really going to be a great movie. And I don't say things like that lightly," Nimoy told a gathering of 6,500 fans Thursday at Comic-Con, the nation's largest pop-culture convention. He greeted the crowd with a Vulcan salute. Nimoy was joined by the newly named young Spock, "Heroes" star Zachary Quinto, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Nimoy. Both Spocks were introduced by the...

    STAR Trek legend William Shatner has been offered a real-life space flight — but he won’t go boldly. Shatner — who plays fearless Kirk — says he is terrified of taking up Sir Richard Branson’s offer of joining Virgin Galactic’s first passenger flight in 2008. The actor fears he will throw up in space or the craft will crash. Shatner, 75, said yesterday: “I’m interested in man’s march into the unknown but to vomit in space is not my idea of a good time. “Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me.” Ironically, the original TV series...

    Their partnership anchored a TV cult phenomenon and inspired films, parodies, even a genre of homoerotic fiction. Capt. James Tiberius Kirk and Spock, or rather the actors who played them, were welcomed to Toronto like gods yesterday on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the first televised episode of Star Trek. A sold-out crowd of 500 trekkies at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre gave William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy a standing ovation as the men made a lively joint appearance, their first together in Canada.

    Make no mistake—Captain Kirk and his crew were cowboys and they treated the universe like the Wild West. There was always a lot of solemn talk about the Prime Directive and not interfering with native cultures, but that went right out the window the moment Kirk laid eyes on the first attractive female of whatever species they came across. Sure, they solved a lot of problems, but half the time they were solving problems they created. The crew of the original Enterprise wasn’t trying to unite the universe, they weren’t trying to right the universe’s many and sundry wrongs—they were...

    STAR Trek legend Mr Spock has boldly gone on his bravest enterprise yet — photographing fat women NAKED. Actor Leonard Nimoy has focused on a group of very large women — many with tattoos and in a variety of poses. The sci-fi hero’s website is full of the pictures titled Full Body Project. They have even been included in an exhibition at a New York gallery. Leonard, 74, said yesterday: “I have discovered my artistic enthusiasm for photographing voluptuous naked women. I am snapping them now with great abandon.” A source said: “Leonard’s Star Trek character was strange and this...
