Further to Ryan Tubridy’s attack on Star Trek-watching, bedsit dwellers allegedly picking on children and celebrities online.

Ronan at Star Trek Eire fumes:

Ah now Ryan! I’ve met you at a Star Wars convention so you obviously have time for a bit of sci-fi. Your remark probably won’t go down well with Star Trek fans. It does imply that we’re all lonesome lads on social media.

Have you interviewed Patrick Stewart Ryan? Please tell him your opinions about Star Trek fans. He once objected when an interviewer described Trekkies as “weird”, calling it a “silly thing to say”. Stewart added, “How many do you know personally? You couldn’t be more wrong.”

Isaac Asimov described us: “Trekkies are intelligent, interested, involved people with whom it is a pleasure to be, in any numbers. Why else would they have been involved in Star Trek, an intelligent, interested, and involved show?”

Maybe in some crazy way you’re just angling for a role in the new Star Trek series out in 2017? ;)

Captains New-Series

Oh yes.

A new iteration of the Star Trek TV franchise to be produced by Alex Kutzman (who co-wrote the 2009 film reboot with JJ Abrams) of which CBS president David Stapf sez:

There is no better time to give ‘Star Trek’ fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration. …Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.

Pixeltrek is a part video game, part pixelgraphic simulation of the late 24th century Boldly-Gomobile wherein you can visit familiar (adorably detailed) locations and parts of the ship not featured in the TNG series, including the jacks.

Warning: If you’re any class of a Trekkie, long range scans detect a huge temporal productivity vortex.
