Star Trek: Strange Worlds and Star Trek: Lower Decks renewed, but…
April 12th, 2024 under Star Trek. [ Comments: 1 ]

The good news is that Paramount+ picked up Star Trek: Strange Worlds and Star Trek: Lower Decks for another season. The bad news is it will be the animated show’s last season.

“It has been incredibly rewarding to continue to build the STAR TREK universe, and we’re so grateful to Secret Hideout and our immensely talented casts and producers,” said Jeff Grossman, Executive Vice President, Programming, Paramount+. “STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS has found the perfect blend of action, adventure and humor, and we’re elated to announce another season ahead of our season three premiere. Similarly, STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS has brought the laughs with an ample amount of heart to the franchise across its four seasons. We can’t wait for audiences to see what is in store for the crew of the U.S.S. Cerritos in this final season.”

I hope Lower Decks ends with Moopsy eating everyone! Long live Moopsy!


Jerry O’Connell and Ethan Peck are twinning

Ethan Peck is starring in Star Trek: Strange Worlds with Rebecca Romijn, who is married to Jerry O’Connell. And now her worlds have collided because the men in her life have collided. Not only that, they are wearing the same “couch” shirt.

Hopefully, Mrs. O’Connell will be able to tell them apart. Because is kind of hard.


BTWF: Brent Spiner on To Tell the Truth

Before we knew him as Brent Spiner on Star Trek: The Next Generation, he went by Brent Mintz on To Tell the Truth. I never would’ve recognized Data when he was 23 on that 1972 episode.


Sir Patrick Stewart almost had hair for Star Trek: TNG

We know Sir Patrick Stewart as bald. But if the studio execs had their way, he would’ve worn a wig on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Today, when Picard was on The Graham Norton Show, he told the story about the audition process for the Sci-Fi series.

Stewart did three auditions, and he was getting ready to do the fourth for the heads of Paramount Studios. They decided they wanted to see what he would like with hair on his head. So, his agent asked him if he had a wig. The actor did, but it was still in London. Therefore, they had it flown over the pond to Los Angeles.

Finally, it was audition time, and he wore the hairpiece.

After it was over, he went to take it off. And the execs walked in to see what he would look like without it.

I think we all know which way they preferred him! Although, is it wrong for me to say I kind of like him with hair?


A tale of two Spocks
August 7th, 2023 under Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]

Many years ago, I shared a photo of two Spocks, Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto. At the time, they were the only two people to play the Star Trek role.

Since then, there is a new person who joined the exclusive club, and it is Ethan Peck who plays the legendary role in Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds on Paramount+.
Over the weekend, the two living Vulcans met up, and we got this photo as proof. Do you see the resemblance between the two? I do!

And now, may the two actors live on and prosper. Or as I say Na-Nu, Na-Nu.

On that note, Justin Nunley posted a video that is relevant to my last sentence. To see it, then click here!
