‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Season 2’s Game-Changing Twist Sets Up a Crazy Fresh Plan for Season 3
[Editor’s note: The following article contains spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 Episode 14, “Such Sweet Sorry, Part 2.”]

Many words could be used to describe the Season 2 finale of “Star Trek: Discovery.” One of them is not “quiet.” Picking up after last week’s cliffhanger ending, writers Michelle Paradise, Jenny Lumet, and Alex Kurtzman, along with director Olatunde Osunsanmi, pack the episode with intense action, as the crews of the Enterprise and Discovery work together (with the help of some surprise friends) to keep a massive stockpile of data away from the evil artificial intelligence known as Control (personified by Alan van Sprang).

From the frantic assembly of Burnham’s (Sonequa Martin-Green) time suit, to the epic space battle between the Enterprise, Discovery, and Control’s ships, to the impressive hand-to-hand, gravity-challenged fight between Control, Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh), and security officer Commander Nhan (Rachael Ancheril), there’s plenty of excitement packed into the episode, all topped off by “Discovery

Remembering Leonard Nimoy On His 88th Birthday

88 years ago on this day, March 26th, Leonard Nimoy was born, and as we take a moment to remember his career, it’s hard not to notice the reflection of the Vulcan edict in it: Infinite diversity in infinite combinations.

Like any actor, it took him years of working in Hollywood before he was cast in his breakthrough role, and it was one that brought him notoriety and opportunity for nearly five decades. Of course, we’re talking about Star Trek‘s Mr. Spock, the coldly logical first officer of the USS Enterprise in the original TV series, which ran from 1966 to 1969.

The actor would reprise the part across several films as well, and even showed up in the rebooted Star Trek movies. Nimoy tried getting behind the camera a few times throughout his career, too, including Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Episode 4 Easter Eggs

Ryan Britt Feb 7, 2019

Did you catch all of these Star Trek references and Easter eggs in Discovery's "An Obol For Charon"?

The fourth episode of Star Trek: Discovery’s second season is all about death, and perhaps, in some senses, rebirth.

The title of the episode, is “An Obol for Charon,” which references the Greek mythological god Charon and the specific way you bribe him. In order to get your soul taken to the right place in the underworld, you’re supposed to give Charon an “Obol” or payment. In ancient Greece, this sometimes meant putting money in the mouths of dead people. In this Star Trek episode it seems to reference the price everyone is paying for flirting with death, or in the case of the Spore Drive, traveling to the “underworld.”

Anyway. Beyond the big Greek Mythology lesson, the latest Disco also referenced a ton of existing

The Wrath of Khan director wasn’t impressed by Star Trek Into Darkness

While Star Trek has its fair share of memorable villains, there’s one who truly stands out above the rest of the pack: Khan Noonien Singh, the genetically engineered 20th century warlord played by Ricardo Montalban in The Original Series episode ‘Space Seed’ and the 1982 feature film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Having firmly made his mark with just two appearances in the original Trek canon, Khan was resurrected by director J.J. Abrams for the 2013 reboot sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, with Benedict Cumberbatch taking on the role for what was essentially a very loose remake of The Wrath of Khan.

Appearing on the Midnight’s Edge podcast, Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer (who also worked on Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country as well as the new series Star Trek: Discovery) was asked for his thoughts on Into Darkness,

William Shatner Regrets Directing Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

William Shatner Regrets Directing Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier was directed by Captain Kirk star William Shatner and is regarded as one of the worst movies in the franchise. The film currently sits with a 22 percent Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes and even the most hardcore fans agree that it's really bad. In Shatner's new memoir Live Long and... What I Might Have Learned Along the Way, which is due out next week, the actor admits that he should not have directed the film and regrets the decision.

William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy had their lawyers draft up a "favored nations clause" back when the original Star Trek series was still on the air. The clause stated that each actor would be paid the same and that they would receive the same raises in the future. Later, Nimoy directed Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home,

Thank the heavens that “Logan” and “Deadpool” happened.

Batman & Robin” (1997)

Isn’t this an ice list?

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” (1972)

Fans of the “Planet of the Apes” prequels might be interested to see Caesar’s original origins, although the new films do the character more justice.

Mark A. Mangini and Theo Green (‘Blade Runner 2049’ sound editors) on immersing the audience in their ‘subversive’ sound [Exclusive Video Interview]
Sound editor Mark A. Mangini reveals that while he was inspired by the original “Blade Runner” (1982) for his work on Denis Villeneuve‘s followup, “Blade Runner 2049,” he didn’t want to copy it. “One of our early tasks was to understand what made the first film so rich and interesting sonically, and then find a way to deconstruct it and make it our own,” he explains. “We wanted to honor it in the way that it was so effective and so subversive in its use of sound.” By opening themselves up to a more musical and expressionistic style, Mangini and Theo Green reaped an Oscar nomination for Best Sound Editing. Watch our exclusive video interview with the duo above.

It's well known that Jj Abrams, along with many other Trekkies, Trekkers, and people who sometimes watch Star Trek, is especially fond of Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, and used that film as inspiration for his own take on Star Trek in the recent movies. The Wrath Of Khan is many people’s favourite Trek film, one of the best of the Star Trek movies, the source of the idea that the even-numbered ones are the good ones.

Ten Terrible Movie Posters

  • Cinelinx
Movie posters are an important advertising element for a film. But what happens when they don't do such a great job in promoting their film?

Movie posters are supposed to be the first and most prominent promotional tool of a film. Many times movie posters may be the first official material released for a film production as well as the first opportunity that the film has to reach its potential audience. That makes them very important. Like trailers, they are meant to capture your attention. Unlike trailers, they are not supposed to give too much away. There are various techniques that have been used over the years to accomplish this task including bright colors, eye-catching fonts, and the prominent inclusion of big name stars’ faces. Graphic design as well as a general nod to the production design of the film are important components for every movie poster. Before the advent of computers,

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: Things Get Even Darker (But More Fascinating) in ‘Choose Your Pain’
It’s an intense time on the Discovery this week, as Captain Lorca gets kidnapped by Klingons, we meet the immediately infamous Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson), and Lt. Stamets makes a bold but rash decision.

[Editor’s note: Spoilers for Season 1, Episode 5, “Choose Your Pain” follow.]

Not One Big Happy Family (Yet?)

When you compare “Discovery” to other “Trek” series, one aspect that stands out is the comparatively small size of the cast.

There’s a new addition this week, though, after Lorca brings on board Lieutenant Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif), whose status as a former prisoner seems like it’s left him pretty messed up. The engineering team of Stamets, Tilly, and Burnham has coalesced into a fun trio, and all of Burnham’s interactions with Saru are interesting, given how those characters have a deep backstory.

However, the cast in general hasn’t really come together yet as a full ensemble, which speaks to the unconventional nature of the plotting here,

Star Trek Veteran Nicholas Meyer is Reportedly Developing a New Series Focused on Khan

Earlier this summer a rumor surfaced that writer and director Nicholas Meyer was developing a new Star Trek series separate from Star Trek: Discovery. Meyer has worked on Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. He also worked on Discovery, so it's pretty exciting that this Star Trek veteran could be developing a new series.

What's even more exciting is that this new rumored series might focus on Khan! The news comes from GeekExchange, who offers the following details on what the series will be about:

Meyer’s new project takes him back to Khan Noonien Singh, the “genetically superior” villain played by Ricardo Montalban in the original series episode “Space Seed” and in The Wrath of Khan, and by Benedict Cumberbatch in the J.J. Abrams-helmed Star Trek Into Darkness. Meyer will reportedly be developing a prequel miniseries,
