This is the best possible choice. Bryan Fuller—who worked on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager back in the day, before going on to create Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Hannibal—will be the showrunner of the new Star Trek TV show.
Mr. Freeze has a whole new look. Olivia Munn pitches a Psylocke solo movie. Hear the Punisher talk in a new Daredevil teaser. Could Felicity get a supersuit on Arrow? Plus, Vin Diesel on xXx 3, a Rogue One actress teases an explosive scene, and new pictures from Agent Carter, iZombie, and Colony. To me, my Spoilers!

Science fiction and fantasy are full of platonic relationships that punch you in the gut. So in no particular order, here are the 17 friendships most guaranteed to…
These are the work of Jesse Bray, whose portraits of famous pop culture characters have just enough geometry to them to be interesting but aren’t completely abstracted.
One of, if not the, biggest anniversaries in pop culture this year is the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. A new TV show is in the works, a new film is being released, and now there’s official news of a massive, three-day convention coming to New York.
When Mezco announced they were bringing the original Star Trek to their detailed One:12 line, they did so with a jaw-droppingly brilliant figure of Spock. The next in the line, Mr. Sulu, continues so many of the amazing details that wowed us with that figure…. and then totally whiffs on the face sculpt itself.
Star Wars is bigger than ever, and we’re celebrating 50 years of Star Trek. This is a great time to be a fan of space action. But these two universes are actually very different, and I have a theory about why. Star Wars is about fighting the Man, and Star Trek is about being the Man.
It’s actually impossible to sum up the huge contribution to genre publishing of David G. Hartwell, who died today according to Locus. He discovered countless great authors and industry professionals, and he edited Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune and Gene Wolfe’s Book of the New Sun. Hartwell is simply irreplaceable.
Entertainment Tonight visited the set of Star Trek Beyond recently, and they revealed some surprising things that we can look forward to, including one member of the crew who’s started a family.

Few would argue with the fact that Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the best film in the Trek franchise. It’s got action, suspense, huge twists, an amazing villain, and perhaps most importantly for the matter at hand, an iconic score by the late, great James Horner.
This is pretty awesome: A picture of the original Star Trek model, along with the men who assembled it, taken in December, 1964.
Some of the best art takes your favorite thing and presents it in a new, fun way. Kevin Greene is a master at this. He takes famous, recognizable sci-fi characters and makes them look like they belong on a wall at a famous Italian restaurant.
Yesterday, Star Trek fans were up in arms at the news that CBS had filed a lawsuit seeking to shut down the hugely successful crowdfunded fan production Axanar, after a year of tolerating the project’s development. Also surprised? Axanar producer Alec Peters, who found out about it by reading said news. Ooh err.
It goes without saying the gap between the fake exploration on Star Trek and the actual exploration at NASA is huge. But next year, they’ll be worth exactly the same at the post office.
