    A new expansion for Star Trek Online has been announced by Perfect World Entertainment Inc., and Cryptic Studio.

    This third expansion for the MMORPG is Star Trek: Online: Agents of Yesterday.

    In Star Trek: Online: Agents of Yesterday, players can “create a new Captain in the timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series, where they will take command of an era appropriate ship and begin their new adventure! Launching in Summer 2016, the third expansion also introduces two well-known characters from Star Trek: The Original Series, five new ships, plus the iconic Enterprise, Constitution.”

    “The expansion harkens back to key themes from Star Trek: The Original Series, including the search for new life and new civilizations,” said a press release for the new expansion.

    In Agents of Yesterday, the characters of Chekov and Scotty will be voiced by Walter Koenig, and Chris Doohan, son of James Doohan.


    Star Trek Online has been able to explore other eras in the franchise from Star Trek: Enterprise to Star Trek: Voyager, while continuing to add to the core Star Trek narrative,” said Steve Ricossa, executive producer of Star Trek Online. “The 50th Anniversary of Star Trek presents a unique opportunity and challenge for our team, to faithfully venture back in time to one of the most iconic science-fiction settings and eras in television history. Combining Star Trek: The Original Series with Star Trek Online allows us to take players on some new and unique adventures in a time period that is beloved by fans.”

    Star Trek: Voyager‘s Tim Russ will be starring in Prayerville, a play written by Grammy winning songwriter Janis Ian at this year’s Sci Fest L.A.

    Russ will take on the role of Tomajanski, a retired Global Alliance Army Major, who “in his younger days, ran wild through the galaxy. Now, sick and getting sicker, Tomajanski hopes to turn the once-honorable duty of returning the bodily remains of dead aliens into a for-profit business.”

    “It’s important to me to support Sci-Fest L.A. because I am a fan of science fiction, and because it’s live theater,” said Russ. “And small- to medium-sized theater needs all the help it can get here in Los Angeles.”

    “The role of Tomajanski was interesting to me because of the character’s contrast to [the virtues of spirituality, sacrifice and honor],” said Russ. “He is an outwardly brash and arrogant character, lacking a moral compass…and he physically suffers for it.”

    Sci Fest L.A. runs from today through May 29. For more information and to purchase tickets, head to the link located here.

    People hoping for a quick resolution to the CBS Corporation/Paramount Pictures vs. Axanar Productions are in for a disappointment with the news that a potential start date for the court case won’t come until May 9, 2017.

    That is, unless a settlement is hammered out between the opposing sides. Both sides will explore settlement proceedings overseen by a federal magistrate in hopes of resolving the case.

    Next week, there will be a hearing where Judge R. Gary Klausener will consider a defense motion to dismiss the case.

    The proposed trial schedule would be as follows, if no settlement or dismissal of the case occurs.

    • Jun 8, 2016: Last day to add parties (so-called John Does)
    • Oct 28, 2016: Fact discovery cut-off
    • Nov 18, 2016: Initial expert disclosures
    • Dec 16, 2016: Rebuttal expert disclosures
    • Jan 27, 2017: Expert discovery cut-off
    • Feb 13, 2017: Motions due
    • Apr 24, 2017: Final pre-trial conference
    • May 9, 2017: Trial begins

    The trial would be expected to last up to fifteen days.

    Meanwhile, the Language Creation Society has filed a “friend-of-the-court” brief claiming that Paramount doesn’t own the Klingon language, according to The Guardian. “Given that Paramount Pictures commissioned the creation of some of the language, it is understandable that Paramount might feel some sense of ownership over the creation,” said attorney Marc Randazza. “But, feeling ownership and having ownership are not the same thing. The language has taken on a life of its own.”

    “A language is only useful if it can be used to communicate with people,” responded Paramount‘s attorney, David Grossman, “and there are no Klingons with whom to communicate.”

    Jennifer Lien made a court appearance this week for a “status check,” but was not happy to see cameras.

    The actress shielded her face as she left the courtroom.

    Lien was in court due to various charges from last spring which are still pending. She tried to evade and then resist arrest, ramming a police cruiser in the process. Lien was later charged with indecent exposure after an incident last August

    The former actress was ordered to undergoing mental health treatment, which she is doing, and to pay $2,291.85 in restitution to the police department whose cruiser she damaged.

    Lien’s legal woes continue. According to the Dalton Daily Citizen, Lien was arrested back in March and charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane.

    When told of the arrest, which happened in Whitfield County, Georgia, Public Defender Kim Nelson, whose office is representing Lien, said “That’s news to me.”

    How the new charges will affect Lien’s cases in Tennessee is uncertain. Lien’s next court date is August 29.

    Fans used to getting a season’s worth of shows all at once on various streaming platforms will not be happy with how CBS will be releasing episodes of the new Star Trek televised series, due to air next January.

    According to CBS President Les Moonves, the series will be “episodic, week by week.”

    This means no binge-watching, but having to come back every week, as is the way on broadcast TV.

    Using this now old-fashioned tactic, the show might as well be on broadcast television, but it’s obvious that CBS wants viewers to stay (and to pay for more than one month of access), and not just dip into CBS All Access for a quick season binge session.

    Two Star Trek comics will arrive tomorrow, but fans can have a sneak peek today.

    The comics include Star Trek: Manifest Destiny #2, and Star Trek: New Visions #11.

    Written by Mike Johnson and Ryan Parrott, featuring art by Angel Hernandez and covers by Hernandez, Tony Shasteen, and J.K. Woodward, Star Trek: Manifest Destiny #2 will be thirty-two pages in length and will cost $3.99.

    In Star Trek: New Visions #11, “a god cannot die, and a story never truly ends. Dr. McCoy confronts Captain Kirk with a staggering discovery — Lt. Carolyn Palamas is pregnant with the child of Apollo. Or is she? Find out in Of Woman Born.”

    CBS’s new live action Star Trek series will roll out one episode per week, CBS CEO Les Moonves told reporters today in his quaterly earnings call. He also confirmed that the studio is on track for its originally planned premiere date of January, 2017. With CBS’s move to put its new as yet unnamed Star Trek television series on their streaming only platform, CBS All Access, fans have been wondering: what exactly will Star Trek All Access be like? Following the traditional model of network television, Les Moonves said today that the new Star Trek show will roll out one episode per week. This is unlike many other shows purpose built for over-the-top streaming platforms, such as those on Netflix, which release entire seasons in one fell swoop. Moonves also confirmed that Trek, on track to premiere in January of next year, will be the first of 3 or 4 more original shows for the All Access platform, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be able to watch CBS shows elsewhere, too. As Deadline reports: Moonves says he would “absolutely” consider offering CBS on Hulu’s planned skinny bundle service “if they offer us the right pricing for our subs.” That’s consistent with his view that new services will be “a huge positive” for CBS because they’ll need the network and will pay rates “even higher than from our current partners.” That said, Moonves isn’t worried about other online competitors eating into CBS’s profits. “Questions are now arising about the effectiveness of certain digital media platforms,” said Moonves, noting that marketers “get their best returns” from broadcast television.

    Conflict over fan productions is creating such a legal argle-bargle that to sort it out would require either an obsessive crackpot who’s escaped from his keeper or Samuel T. Cogley, attorney at law. At the forefront is, of course, the ongoing Axanar lawsuit, with Paramount and CBS coming down on the fan production for potentially millions of dollars worth of damages. (We talked about it at length on the Shuttlepod podcast here.) Yesterday, CBS/Paramount and Axanar Productions issued a joint statement agreeing to a year-long schedule of “discovery and motion” before a trial begins next May. A settlement might come sooner as Judge R. Gary Klausner issued an order in March that attorneys find an alternative way to resolve the dispute, thus avoiding the cost of a trial, such as settlement overseen by a federal magistrate (which both parties say they would prefer). Regardless, this climate seems to have put everyone on edge about the future of other fan productions, with some already being asked by CBS to shut down. Moreover, with only two days left in its Indiegogo campaign, Star Trek Continues has raised less than half of its $350,000 goal for the next several episodes. The reasons for this may be many, but its clear that the Axanar lawsuit is a big factor – STC has reportedly received several inquiries asking whether or not the suit would affect ongoing production of Continues and expressing anxiety over donating. Making things worse, recently William Shatner himself came down on STC via Twitter for using his image without permission. Will Fictional Polyglots Be Saying Qapla? And now some fans are pushing back against Paramount over the Klingon language, one of the sticking points where Axanar had allegedly violated Paramount’s intellectual property. As reported by UPI, the Language Creation Society has filed an amicus brief and exhibits in the case of Paramount/CBS v. Axanar over the studios’ claim to copyright of the Klingon language from the various incarnations of Trek, arguing you can’t copyright a language. The group’s lawyer, First Amendment attorney Marc Randazza, argues, “Paramount Pictures lacks the ‘yab bang chut’ or ‘mind property law’ necessary to claim copyright over the Klingon language.” Paramount’s attorney, David Grossman, shot back that, “This argument is absurd since a language is only useful if it can be used to communicate with people, and there are no Klingons with whom to communicate.” The outcome of this case could have ramifications on other fictional languages, such as Game of Thrones’ Dothraki and Tolkien’s Elvish. (Yes, I know there is no “Elvish.” Technically Tolkien created multiple Elf languages, like Quenya and Sindarin, and even multiple scripts. The most famous is Tengwar. But we’re talking about Star Trek here, people. Focus.) If only this dispute could be settled as simply as a Ferengi explaining finances to a group of Klingons! With reinvigoration in the franchise – the upcoming Star Trek All Access, a third Abrams-verse movie, a potential fourth down the road – the opportunity for Paramount/CBS to monetize the 50-year-old brand is greater than it’s been since the 1990s. Given new opportunities available in the modern market with online sales, web series, and social media, Star Trek could be at its most profitable ever. And as Quark might remind us, “A wise man can hear profit in the wind.” What that means for the relationship between the fans and the studio remains for the courts to decide. Update and correction: We have edited this article to clarify that the LCS has not created a new lawsuit against Paramount and CBS. Rather, they have filed an amicus brief to the already ongoing Paramount/CBS v Axanar lawsuit.

    The second trailer for Star Trek Beyond will premiere at a special fan event at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles on May 20th. Today, Paramount released the official rules for a video contest that will allow fans to show the world “How you Go Beyond as a Star Trek fan”, including 5 grand prizes that include airfare and a 2-night hotel stay in LA for the event. How do you “Go Beyond”? Paramount wants Trekkies to show the world how they “Go Beyond” as a Star Trek fan. During one of five day-long entry periods, fans can submit videos of themselves “going beyond” and explaining why they should get the chance to attend the LA fan event. Videos can be shared on facebook (in the US, Australia, and the UK), or on twitter by tagging user @StarTrekMovie and including the hashtag #StarTrekContest. The event, which was announced in April, will include the premiere of the newest Beyond trailer, special guest appearances and more. As stated in the initial press release: The one-time only special event, taking place at the historic Paramount Pictures studio lot, will include the premiere of the newest “Star Trek Beyond” trailer, an exclusive first-look of never before seen footage from the upcoming film, a Q&A with Lin and the cast and crew, special guests appearances, and other surprises. The Q&A will be streamed via Facebook Live. The Rules Your video can be a maximum of 50 seconds in length (be succinct, people!) and will be judged on the following criteria: 10% creativity, 20% originality, 30% clarity and 40% relevance. There are five entry periods, and you can submit a video for each one – each lasting a day, beginning at midnight and ending at 11:59 PM PST of May 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The contest is open to current legal residents of Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), the United Kingdom and the United States (including Washington D.C.) who are at least 21 years old or older at the time of entry. The Prizes Paramount is giving away 50 pairs of tickets for each of the one-day entry periods – totaling 500 winning tickets. One video from each entry period will get the ultimate prize, which includes airfare for 2 to LA, a 2-night hotel stay, and transportation reimbursement up to $200. You can read the official rules right here:

    Some might be surprised that Star Trek Beyond is coming out in two and half months, considering the lack of advertising we’ve seen for the film. At least, that’s been the sentiment on news sites, blogs, and comment boards around the internet: shouldn’t we have another trailer or more photos by now? But is the advertising for Beyond really that abysmal compared to the previous two films? We’ve constructed an interactive timeline comparing the release of promotional material before Beyond and Star Trek Into Darkness to find out. Here we compare the pre-release advertising timelines for the two sequel films from the JJ Abrams reboot of the Star Trek movie franchise. One thing that makes Beyond and Into Darkness difficult to compare directly is the fact that the movies had quite different premiere dates. While both “summer tentpole” films, Beyond is slated to come out July 22nd, while Into Darkness came out over two months earlier, on May 16th. So saying, “by March of 2013, we already had much more advertising for STID compared to March of 2016 for STB” is misleading, as STB would be two months behind in its advertising schedule. That’s why we compare the two timelines not by absolute date but by another metric: number of days before release (indicated in red (STB) or blue (STID) text above each timeline event), starting with the first trailer. The first thing that stands out is just how much earlier the first trailer for Beyond (221 days before release) came out compared to Into Darkness (151 days before). This set STB up for the big lull in advertising between December, 2015 and March of this year when things started to ramp up again (albeit, slowly). On the flip side, Into Darkness had two trailers released in rapid succession early on, with Trailer #2 coming out just 10 days after the announcement trailer in December of 2012. At the time of writing, with 81 days until Beyond‘s release, we have gotten 1 trailer, 2 major interviews, 10 photos, and 2 behind-the-scenes videos. At the same point in Into Darkness‘s timeline, we had gotten 2 trailers, 3 major interviews, 15 photos, plus 2 apps and the reveal of some plot details. There is definitely a mismatch here in the advertising timelines: the data clearly show that STB is lagging behind STID. However, we must admit, the disparity isn’t as large as we had initially thought (although this may be partly due to a large number of Beyond images being released just two days ago). If the PR powers that be behind Star Trek Beyond‘s advertising plan can rally and release a veritable firehose of material in the next two months (and, that may be a big if) the two timelines may end up looking not so dissimilar. In other words, if our timeline has any predictive power whatsoever, we should be expecting to see a LOT of promotional material for Star Trek Beyond coming out relatively soon. A big reason that Trekkies have been less than enthused with the promotion of Star Trek Beyond is undoubtedly the inescapable comparison to the advertising of another space-based science fiction reboot, also helmed by JJ Abrams. With Disney’s powerhouse saturate-the-market approach, you couldn’t get away from Star Wars promo material. It even invaded our produce aisles. Still, out of control Star Wars merchandising aside, you can’t deny the fact that hype surrounding Beyond has been disappointing. Even friends of mine – Trekkies who also listen to me talk about Star Trek news constantly – are often shocked when I tell them the new movie comes out in a couple of months. “I thought it was coming out next year?” is not an uncommon reply. With Paramount struggling to keep its shareholders happy, it’s a wonder why they don’t pay more attention to one of their most successful properties. With 81 days left to go, can they turn the promotional tide? Note: Although viewable on mobile, your experience will be best viewing this timeline on a larger screen. If you must view it on mobile, we recommend turning your phone to landscape mode. See something errant or missing? Let us know in the comments. We will keep this timeline updated as new Star Trek Beyond advertising comes out.

    If you’ve ever dreamed of following in the footsteps of your favorite starship captain, now’s your chance. Beginning July 9, fans will be able to experience what Career Day would be like at Starfleet Academy when Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience opens at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. Produced by EMS Entertainment, Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience is an interactive exhibition that allows visitors to browse various fields of study: Language, Medical, Navigation, Engineering, Command, and Science.  Visitors will then be assigned a specialty based on their training. The exhibition itself will be an enormous 12,000 square feet and will use a lot of cool tech to bring the future to life. From There will be interactive activities and unique technology, including Leap Motion, voice recognition to communicate with a Klingon, a Medical Tricorder table with RFID sensors, planet projection mapping, holograms, a shooting game using Star Trek’s iconic phasers, and much more. Visitors also will have a chance to learn about the real-life inventions inspired by Star Trek as well as the science behind them. There will also be props and costumes from the history of the franchise on display.  The exhibition runs through October 31, after which it will begin a national tour.  More information about ticket pricing and other special events being held can be found here. The Intrepid will also be hosting another cool Star Trek exhibit – the Galileo, the iconic shuttlecraft from TOS that made its debut in the first season episode “The Galileo Seven.” The shuttlecraft was recently restored and will appear in the museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion alongside the space shuttle Enterprise, which of course got its name after a huge letter writing campaign convinced NASA to name the ship Enterprise instead of Constitution.  The official unveiling of the shuttle was attended by Gene Roddenberry and most of the original cast in 1976. For our friends of up north who might feel left out, I have good news: the exhibition makes its debut at The Canadian Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa on May 13.  Details can found by clicking this.

    Mike Minor made some significant artistic and production design contributions to the original series third season, the aborted Phase 2 series, ST: The Motion Picture and ST II: The Wrath of Khan. In this extensive interview from issue #14 of Enterprise Incidents, published February of 1984, we find out the extent of his involvement. (See his Star Trek wiki page here.) As you may recall, I posted another article on Mike earlier from Starlog, but this one goes much more in-depth. He worked on many other genre productions, not the least of which was Star Wars. It's tragic that he passed away so young in 1987 and we never got to see what he might have done since then.

    This exciting and truly historic image, featuring the 23 foot long restored Star Trek TOS Galileo shuttlecraft prop/exterior filming set on display beside the decommissioned United States Space Shuttle Enterprise (OV-101) - which of course was the first Space Shuttle Orbiter built for NASA and was named after the Star Trek starship - comes to us courtesy of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex in New York City.
    The Galileo was recently transported to the Museum's Space Shuttle Pavilion, on temporary loan from it's permanent home at NASA's Space Center Houston, so that it can be part of the Intrepid Museum's upcoming exhibit, Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience, which opens in July. According to the museum's webpage regarding the exhibit, which may be viewed at :

    In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum welcomes the new exhibition Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience to Pier 86 this summer. The Museum will be the first venue in the United States to host this immersive “Trek Tech” experience, spanning 12,000 square feet. Become a cadet and join the Starfleet Academy’s Career Day in the 26th century. After student orientation, cadets visit nine zones focusing on the Academy’s special training in language, medicine, engineering, navigation, command and science. Once training is completed, cadets receive their specialty. Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience will feature interactive activities and unique technology, including Leap Motion, table projections, projection mapping and holograms. In addition to Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience, the Museum will feature special Star Trek–themed programs and tours.

    Simply to stand in the presence of these two historic spacecraft could make the trek to NYC worthwhile. A short video regarding the shipment and arrival of the Galileo at the Museum may be found at this link:

    A screen used vest worn by members of the Maquis. The Maquis were a rebellious organization of Federation-born colonists and discontented Starfleet officers who organized against the Cardassian occupation of their homes in the Demilitarized Zone after their colonies were ceded to the Cardassian Union by Federation Cardassian Treaties in the late 2360s and early 2370s. Starfleet Command considered members of the Maquis to be traitors, while Cardassia considered the Maquis to be terrorists.

    The vest was worn by actor John Franklyn Robbins in his role as Macias throughout the episode "Preemptive strike" of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1994. Macias was a citizen of Juhraya, a Federation colony that came under Cardassian rule after a treaty was signed with the Federation. He was the leader of a Maquis cell that opposed the treaty. Macias become a friend with Ro Laren who joins the Maquis in "Preemptive Strike".

    The vest was also used on the set of Voyager by stunt actor Steve Blalock. In the episode "Worst Case Scenario" he plays a Maquis rebel, too. The production team added a velcro patch to the vest for a Starfleet combadge.

    The Klingon baldric was a sash that traditionally went over the left or right shoulder of noble Klingons. It contained the symbol of a Klingon House or it was used to hold knives and disruptors. In 2009 the look of the famous alien warriors was redesigned by costume designer Michael Kaplan for J.J. Abrams' reboot of Star Trek.

    The Klingons wear helmets and grey thick coats with a large black baldric. Kaplan described them as his favorite costumes for the film, explaining he modeled the helmets on a horseshoe crab, while the coats were intended to resemble the texture of an elephant or rhinoceros. The baldric is made of leather. The outer layer is calf skin. Two snaps and velcro are mounted inside to fasten the baldric.

    Unfortunately the scenes with the new Klingons set on Rura Penthe were cut in Star Trek. Director J.J. Abrams tried to avoid a disruption of narrative flow. But the Klingons returned in the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). Michael Kaplan revised the costumes again. Although the Klingons got new outfits with a different kind of baldric you can see a Klingon with a black baldric which was designed for its predecessor.
