Back in 1945, Let It Snow was released for the first time. Seventy-Four years later, the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation is giving it their own twist of the tune thanks to Markeia McCarthy.

Instead of Let It Snow, the mashup changes the chorus to Make It So. One of the show’s catchphrases. At least, I am assuming so because I did not watch it. Although, this video makes me want to check out the show.

I love it when people do these mashups. I am grateful that they have the time and brain cells to handle it.

Watch Mary Chieffo transform into a Klingon
June 21st, 2019 under CBS All Access, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]


Mary Chieffo plays Chancellor L’Rell, Mother of Klingons on Star Trek Discovery and that means she has to wear a lot of makeup and prosthetics in order to play the part.

CBS TV Studios shared a video of her getting into character. Unlike other actors, it is not as easy as just putting on an accent. It is hours of sitting in a makeup chair as they make her up piece by piece. You have to admire how cool she is throughout the long process. I cannot even sit still to write this up and she is like whatevs.

Which is why CBS All Access is asking for her and the makeup department to be considered for an Emmy. The voters should consider that there is much more to acting than acting out the lines. I doubt someone like Constance Wu would be willing to go through all of that for a role. Now I am not saying that acting out lines is easy and should be nullified, but some actors have to do a lot more before they go in front of the camera and should be recognized for that too. Mandy Moore does more to play Rebecca Pearson than some of the actresses on Big Little Lies.

I also think it is really interesting to watch these transformation videos. I enjoy watching a human turn into something else. How would you say that in Klingon?

Rebecca Romijn finds out if brunettes have more fun!
October 8th, 2018 under CBS All Access, Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]


As long as we have known Rebecca Romijn, she has been a blonde. But for her role in CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery, she is a brunette. Here is a glimpse of her with the darker locks and she is giving Alexis Carrington a run for her sexy money. So, I am sure Jerry O’Connell is making her wear the wig to bed when the twins are asleep.

Ethan Peck will live long and prosper as Spock on Star Trek: Discovery
August 14th, 2018 under CBS All Access, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]


Star Trek: Discovery is bringing a familiar name to the Enterprise. That name is Spock. The beloved Vulcan has been played by the late Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto, and now a new person is taking over that role. That actor has a famous last name and is a Hollywood legacy.

CBS All Access announced today that Gregory Peck’s grandson, Ethan Peck, is the new Spock and I know he has the chops or pointy ears (well they are not pointy but you get my point) to play the legendary role. This is not the first time that he has taken on a character made famous by someone else. In 2009, he starred as Patrick Verona, a role originated by Heath Ledger, in the small screen version of 10 Things I Hate About You.

Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman had this to say about the casting of the only character who has been part every era of the franchise for 52 years, “We searched for months for an actor who would…bring his own interpretation to the role. An actor who would…effortlessly embody Spock’s greatest qualities, beyond obvious logic: empathy, intuition, compassion, confusion, and yearning.” Then he added, “Ethan Peck walked into the room inhabiting all of these qualities, aware of his daunting responsibility to Leonard, Zack, and the fans, and ready to confront the challenge in the service of protecting and expanding on Spock’s legacy. In that spirit, we’re thrilled to welcome him to the family.”

Talking about family, Adam Nimoy had this to say about the exciting news, “There’s a new Spock in town! Welcome to the family Ethan!! #StarTrekDiscovery #LLAP 🖖”

How does Peck feel about taking on the role? He wrote, “Beyond all logic, beyond what I thought was possible, I find myself in this reality. It is with great honor and a sense of immense responsibility that I take on the iconic role that Leonard gave to us and that Zachary did brilliant justice to.” He continued with, “Thank you Adam Nimoy, Julie Nimoy, Terry Farrell and David Knight for your open arms, warm welcome, smiling curiosity, support, for making me feel worthy, as I embrace and take into my heart the half alien we know as Mr. Spock. 🖖🏼 #StarTrekDiscovery #LLAP”

Star Trek: Discovery returns to CBS All Access early next year. I now have a reason to watch.

Sir Patrick Stewart returns to the final frontier
August 4th, 2018 under CBS All Access, Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]


CBS All Access brought Star Trek back to the small screen and now they are bringing back a franchise favorite to be part of his own show. After weeks of rumors that Sir Patrick Stewart would be back guiding the Enterprise, he finally confirmed that it is true.

I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.

During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.
#StarTrek @cbsallaccess

People from both Stars are excited about the news. Chewbacca aka Peter Mayhew wrote, “Great to hear @SirPatStew is returning as Jean Luc Picard to the #StarTrek universe. I look forward to seeing him on the bridge again.” While Stewart’s co-star from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Wil Wheaton aka Wesley Crusher, just typed OMG until he reached the 280 character limit.

Will Wil Wheaton be part of it? We do not know but according to the Star Trek Twitter page, the new show will tell us what the next chapter from Captain Picard’s life holds for him. Therefore, I would expect we will a lot of blasts from the pasts on the show.

How are you excited for this follow-up for the fan favorite?
