Batu69 posted a topic in Entertainment ExchangeWe've got shiny ships, aliens with oddly geometric lines on their faces, and an intense crash landing. Star Trek Beyond Trailer #2 (2016) - Paramount Pictures The second Star Trek Beyond trailer dropped this weekend, and it gives us a much better sense of what our heroes will be dealing with in this flick. For those who haven't been paying attention, the premise of the new movie is pretty simple: New bad guy Krall (Idris Elba, unrecognizable under spinyface makeup) wrecks the Enterprise with a seriously badass weapon; everybody is marooned on a planet; and there are motorcycles. Given that the movie was directed by Justin Lin of Fast and the Furious fame, you can bet that the action scenes are deluxe and the motorcycles look great. Star Trek Beyond was co-written by comedian Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty, and the snippets of dialogue we get in this trailer are pretty hit-or-miss. All the daddy issues confessions we get at the beginning of the trailer are just awkward and feel like warmed-over crap from the first movie. But there are a couple of funny one-liners, and I like the repartee between Spock and Bones. But is this the Trek movie you've really been waiting for? Many fans felt like Star Trek Into Darkness was, shall we say, less than great. So there's nowhere to go but up. The movie is out in the States on July 22. Article source
Star Trek Online Pays Tribute to Leonard Nimoy MMORPG Star Trek Online has payed tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy with two new in-game status, one on Vulcan, and the other on New Romulus. Obviously, I will take a pilgrimage to both locations this weekend and openly weep into my keyboard. I think I'm going to tape my fingers together into Vulcan salutes and rock them proudly all weekend. Or get frustrated trying to hold a beer and take them off ten minutes into happy hour this afternoon. Still, it's the thought that counts. Rest in peace, Leonard. Source
Crazycanuk posted a topic in Jokes & Funny StuffYOU FOOLS: Watch Mall-Goers Ooh And Aah Over Star Trek Teleportation Illusion This is a video from a British shopping mall of a bunch of people losing their minds after watching someone climb into a Star Trek teleporter and magically get beamed a couple stores away. The stunt was organized by movie streaming service Blinkbox (of Game of Thrones dragon skeleton fame) to advertise the availability of 'Star Trek Into Darkness'. How did they make the illusion work? SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER: using twins. Shocking. And to see all those people freaking out like people were actually getting zapped across the mall. Hopefully they remembered to let the twin out of the box afterwards though, because it would suck to die in there. It would also suck to be stuck at the mall in a group of jaw-dropping idiots, which is why I would have yelled 'HOLY SHIT IT'S A BOMB!' and dove into a bin of Victoria's Secret thongs. Source
Crazycanuk posted a topic in The Chat BarMan sells fake Star Trek tricorder for $800,000, now faces fraud charges An Illinois man who persuaded a company to provide almost $1 million in financing for a telemedicine computer tablet named after the physician on the “Star Trek” TV show was arrested for fraud, according to federal prosecutors. Howard Leventhal also allegedly presented an undercover U.S. agent posing as an investor with a fake contract to supply the Canadian government with a make-believe device. “Leventhal claimed to have lucrative connections within the Canadian government and cutting edge technology that could help save lives,” U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch in Brooklyn, New York, said in a statement today announcing Leventhal’s arrest on a wire fraud charge. “In reality, his scheme was pure science fiction, complete with phony documents and a fictional medical device.” Leventhal, 56, last year told executives at Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based Paragon Financial Group. Inc. that Health Canada owed him as much as $4 million and that the agency had agreed to purchase the “McCoy Home Health Tablet” from his company, Neovision USA, according to the complaint. After that meeting, Leventhal sent Paragon officials what he said was a contract between Neovision and the Canadian government, with a forged signature by Deputy Health Minister Glenda Yeates, for $8.4 million CAD ($8.2 million USD), according to the complaint. The purported contract included a document describing the device. Leonard McCoy “Heltheo’s McCoy Home Health Tablet, named after the fictional Dr. Leonard McCoy of TV’s Star Trek series, is designed as a platform to maximize the patient benefits through broadband-augmented in-home telemedicine,” according to the document. Paragon was duped into giving Leventhal $800,000, according to prosecutors. Leventhal later gave the forged Canadian government paperwork and phony bank statements to the undercover agent in a bid to secure $2.5 million more in financing, according to the complaint. Leventhal, of Long Grove, Illinois, appeared today in federal court in Chicago. He was released on a $100,000 bond and ordered to attend an Oct. 30 hearing in Brooklyn, said his court-appointed attorney, Gary Adair. Adair said Leventhal intends to contest the charge against him. Now a franchise of Viacom Inc (VIAB),’s Paramount Pictures, “Star Trek” began as a three-year NBC television series about the crew of the interstellar spaceship USS Enterprise in the 23rd century. It has since spun off four more television series and a dozen feature films. SOURCE
