Star Trek

The collection will include Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (both the theatrical and director’s cut), Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in 4K UHD and Digital.

The Motion Picture will have an Isolated Score in 2.0 The collection will cost around seventy dollars and will be out on September 21st.


It should also be noted that Paramount and Paramount plus have announced that a full restoration of the Director’s Edition of Star trek The motion picture has been greenlit.The movie will be prepared in presentation in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision HDR and a new Dolby Atmos soundtrack. The restoration will take up to 8 months and will then launch with an exclusive window on Paramount Plus.


Also being released is the original series in a Bluray Steelbook set. The set has every episode of the series and nine hours of bonus features inside a snazzy steelbook case design. You can order it now for around 109 dollars and it will be released on the anniversary of the series on September seventh.


A new Star Trek Picard story will be told in Uma McCormack’s new book Star Trek Picard Second Self. This novel focuses on Raffi Musiker’s life following season one. Here’s the synopsis quote "A thrilling untold adventure based on the acclaimed Star Trek: Picard TV series! Following the explosive events seen in season one of Star Trek: Picard, Raffi Musiker finds herself torn between returning to her old life as a Starfleet Intelligence officer or something a little more tame—teaching at the Academy, perhaps. The decision is made for her though when a message from an old contact—a Romulan spy—is received, asking for immediate aid. With the help of Cristobal Rios and Dr. Agnes Jurati, and assistance from Jean-Luc Picard, Raffi decides to take on this critical mission—and quickly learns that past sins never stay buried. Finding the truth will be complicated, and deadly…." The novel will be released on April 26, 2022.


Paramount Plus will be presenting a couple of panels for Comic-Con@home on Friday, July twenty-third beginning at 10 am PDT. The panels will cover Star Trek Prodigy and Star Trek Lower Decks. Season two of Lower Decks will premiere on August twelfth. 


The Star Trek Novel version of post-Voyager Star Trek might be coming to an end with the Star Trek Coda Trilogy. The Three books, Moments Asunder by Dayton Ward, The Ashes of Tomorrow by James Swallow, and Oblivion's Gate by David Mack -- are now available to pre-order on Amazon. And the pre-order page has promised a little insight into what the books will be about quote Here's the synopsis for Moments Asunder: "REALITY ITSELF IS UNDER ATTACK. The epic Star Trek: Coda trilogy begins when the unexpected arrival of an old friend triggers a desperate mission to avert a fast-spreading temporal disaster."

The Ashes of Tomorrow continues the story. The synopsis reads, "THE FUTURE IS AT WAR WITH THE PAST. The epic Star Trek: Coda trilogy continues as friends become foes, the Temporal Apocalypse accelerates, and the catastrophe’s true cause is revealed."

It all concludes in Oblivion's Gate. Its synopsis reads: "THEIR MOST DAUNTING MISSION WILL BE THEIR FINEST HOUR. The epic Star Trek: Coda trilogy comes to a shattering conclusion as the Temporal Apocalypse forces Starfleet’s greatest heroes to make the greatest sacrifices of their lives." unquote So is this the end of this version of events? Or are they trying to set up that this is an alternate timeline like the Kelvin Timeline is?  I guess we will find out when Star Trek Coda Moments Asunder releases on September 28.


The Next Star Trek movie will be directed by Matt Shakman, who directed the Emmy nominated MCU series WandaVision. According to Deadline, production on the film has been fast-tracked and will begin production in the Spring from a script by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. The movie will be produced by JJ Abrams.


Playmates Toy, the company that made Star Trek Toys from 1992 to 1999 is returning to the franchise. Star Trek dot com has announced that a new license agreement has been struck with the toy company for action figures, vehicle, ships role play, and other toy categories for all Star Trek Properties. Playmates' new Star Trek toy line will start with Star Trek Prodigy in 2022. Dion Vlachos Executive Vice President of Hardlines and Retail ViacomCBSD Consumer PRoducts said about the deal quote “As Star Trek readies to beam into the kids’ space for the first time with Star Trek: Prodigy on Paramount+, we are thrilled to also enter the toy aisle with Playmates, offering a new generation of fans out of this world toys that will allow them to embark on their own Star Trek adventures at home,” said Dion Vlachos, Executive Vice President, Hardlines and Retail, ViacomCBS Consumer Products. “Playmates Toys has deep experience in developing Star Trek figures and playsets – in fact, they helped to define and raise the stature of the range of collectibles. The expertise and ingenuity they plan to bring to figures, ships, and more will elevate the play experience for kids and collectors alike.” unquote. Fans can expect toys and action figures for Discovery, Lower Decks, Picard, and past and future star trek content. Is there any character you want a new action figure off?


Star Wars

Viz Media will be releasing a New Star Wars Tribute art book featuring art from 45 Manga creators and illustrators. They announced it via Twitter saying quote Announcement: Explore the galaxy through the beautiful artwork of 45 outstanding Japanese manga artists and illustrators, including Akira Himekawa, Taiyo Matsumoto, and Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. Star Wars: Tribute to Star Wars drops Spring 2022!  Unquote 


Speaking of Star Wars and Anime the series of anime-themed shorts series called Star Wars Visions will be getting a spinoff novel. Star Wars Ronin: A Visions Novel is inspired by Kamikaze Douga’s The Duel helmed by director Takanobu Mizuno and written by Emma Mieko Candon. Star Wars dot come describes the book this way quote "Star Wars: Ronin: A Visions Novel by Emma Mieko Candon, coming October 12th, will expand on the world of The Duel, telling the story of a former, unnamed Sith — known only as Ronin, i.e., a wandering samurai — as he travels the galaxy. According to James Waugh of the Lucasfilm Story Group and executive producer of Star Wars: Visions, there was just too much left to explore in Mizuno’s vision (for lack of better term) to stop with one tale."


“Out of all the shorts, The Duel felt most rife for an ongoing story in a novel. Another one of Ronin’s adventures. One of the things I always loved about the short was that it was clear there was a larger history at play. That this wasn’t the first adventure this warrior had been through and it certainly won’t be their last. What are those stories?” Waugh revealed to the outlet. “The team at Kamikaze Douga were very generous in obliging our interest in continuing the storytelling and had a ton of ideas to lend in the creative process. Visions allows us to explore Star Wars expressed in new ways. And this book is unlike anything we’ve done before.” unquote The novel will be out on October twelfth.



Speaking of Star Wars visions, the nine different anime shorts that will debut on Disney Plus this Fall have had their titles and studios revealed during their panel at Anime Expo Lite 2021. Here’s the list quote :


Kamikaze Douga - "The Duel"

Geno Studio (Twin Engine) - "Lop and Ochō"

Studio Colorido (Twin Engine) - "Tatooine Rhapsody"

Trigger - "The Twins" and "The Elder"

Kinema Citrus - "The Village Bride"

Science Saru - "Akakiri" and "T0-B1"

Production I.G. - "The Ninth Jedi"


A new expansion for the MMO Star Wars The Old Republic has been announced. The new one will be called Legacy of the Sith and will be part of the game’s tenth anniversary throughout 2022.

The expansion will include changes to the game's larger systems and mechanics, boost the level cap to 80, have a new series of co-op missions and a new Flash point. Also added will be a new feature known as Combat Styles, which will let players quote "Combat Styles will allow players to fulfill their ultimate Star Wars fantasy, independently choosing a specific class story and combining it with ability sets from other related tech or force wielding classes," "Existing, returning and new players can look forward to improvements in creating their next Star Wars character through a refactored character creation system. In addition, updates to itemization and loadout experiences as well as streamlined class design further enhances the Star Wars: The Old Republic experience for new, returning and existing players." There has been no word on the release date for this new expansion, but it’s expected in the 2021 Holiday time.

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino had bought his own theater. He dropped the news on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast. He said that he had bought the Vista Theater in Los Feliz, quote "When we opened up the New Beverly about two weeks ago, in June, we sold out every single show,". "And I'll announce one thing here that people don’t know yet: I bought the Vista. We’re going to probably open it up around Christmastime. And again, only film. But it won’t be a revival house — we’ll show new movies that come out. Where they give us a film print, we’ll show new stuff. It’s not going to be like the New Beverly; the New Beverly has its own vibe. The Vista is like a crown jewel kind of thing. So it will be the best prints, we'll show older films, but they'll be like older films where you can hold a fortnight engagement." unquote This is Tarantino’s second theater purchase, he bought LA’s Landmark New Beverly back in 2007


Award-winning Sci-Fi and Fantasy Painter Stephen Hickman passed away this past Friday, Mr. Hickmans; work has graced the covers of 300 hundred sci fi and fantasy novels since the early 1970s for companies like Ace, Baen, Ballantine, Bantam, Berkeley, Dell, Del Rey, Doubleday, Phage Press, Tor and Warren Publications. For his work, he won six Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and a special Hugo Award for a set of stamps he created for the US Postal Service in 1993. He was 72 years old.


Author William F Nolan has passed away. Nolan was the writer of Logan’s Run and other books. His friend Jason V Brock wrote a eulogy for him quote Born in Kansas City, Missouri, [William F.] Nolan was an only child. His father, Michael Cahill Nolan, was an adventurer and sportsman. His mother, Bernadette Mariana Kelly Nolan, was a stenographer. The family resided on Forest Avenue in a predominantly Irish section of the city. Nolan spent his youth riding his bike up and down nearby Troost Avenue, close to the Isis Theater, meeting with friends to spend hot days in the cool of the movie palace, where they watched Westerns, ate candy, and reveled in the adventures of Tom Mix and other film heroes of the day. An avid reader, he devoured Max Brand, comic books (especially Batman), the pulps, and any other books he could get his hands on. He held very fond memories of his childhood.


Later, the family moved to Chula Vista, California just after World War II (Nolan was unable to serve due to flat feet and poor vision). Though the times were hard, his cherished parents had unflinching Irish roots, and the family endured, eventually winding up in Los Angeles. It was during this time Nolan caught the Science Fiction fandom bug. Talented at drawing, Nolan spent many hours working as an artist (including a stint at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City), still enthralled with pulps such as Black Mask, Weird Tales, and comics, especially Jack Kirby’s output. Movies eventually became his greatest enthusiasm, and for years he attended several a week. Being in L.A. only added to his interest in all forms of genre, from Noir to horror to Science Fiction.


Once established in L.A., he stumbled across a fresh new writer named Ray Bradbury, becoming an instant convert. Seeking Bradbury out, by 1952 he had learned enough about him to compile his first serious book, Ray Bradbury Review. It contained a mix of art, stories, and nonfiction, including pieces by writer Chad Oliver and Bradbury. After a few years of doing art, active semi-pro fanzine work, and other fan-related organizing, Nolan made his first big professional sale, “The Darendinger Build-Up” to Playboy, and decided he wanted to be a writer full-time. Around this time, Bradbury introduced Nolan to the man who would become his best friend for ten years, until his untimely death, Mr. Charles Beaumont. Beaumont, Nolan, Richard Matheson, George Clayton Johnson, Chad Oliver, Charles E. Fritch, Kris Neville, John Tomerlin, Mari Wolf, and several others eventually comprised “The Group”, meeting to discuss stories and hang out together.


Nolan’s career flourished as a writer and later a screenwriter, primarily for Dan Curtis. Logan’s Run, which he co-wrote with the late George Clayton Johnson, propelled both men into the public consciousness in a major way, especially after the release of the classic MGM film adaptation in 1976. Although Nolan has written roughly 2000 pieces, to include biographies, short stories, poetry, and novels, Logan’s Run retains its hold on the public consciousness as a political fable and dystopian warning. As Nolan has stated: “That I am known at all is still astonishing to me, as I can so vividly recall the boy flying down the road on his bike in Kansas City all those years ago. My later years have brought me much happiness, I will note, especially my current family, Jason and Sunni Brock. We’ve been a unit for nearly 15 years, and it has been one of the best times of my life.”  


"Author, screenwriter, artist, and occasional actor William Francis Nolan passed away without pain on July 15, 2021, during a brief stay in the hospital following complications from an infection. He was 93 years old. He had no living relatives and was married one time." unquote 



Actor Charlie Robinson has passed away, the actor is best known for the role of court clerk Mac Robinson on the 80’s sitcom Night Court. He started acting in the 1971 movie Drive, He Said and appeared in The White Shadow, Lou Grant, Roots The Next Generation, Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere, Hotel, The Fresh PRice of Bel-air, The John Larroquette Show, Project ALF, Touched by an Angel, 9 episodes of Home Improvement, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, House, My Name is Earl, 30 Rock ( he played himself), Key and Peele, This is us, Mom and many more, he worked up till his passing. Robinson won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series as well as an Ovation Award for Best Actor and an NAACP Theater Award for his stage work. Charlie Robinson died on July eleventh from cardiac arrest with multisystem organ failure due to septic shock and metastatic adenocarcinoma, which is a type of glandular cancer. He was 75 years old,
