‘Galaxy Quest’: Paul Scheer Plans to Blend Original and New Casts For Amazon Series

‘Galaxy Quest’: Paul Scheer Plans to Blend Original and New Casts For Amazon Series
By Grabthar’s Hammer, the criminally overlooked “Galaxy Quest” will be avenged. Based on some new comments from writer/producer Paul Scheer, there’s reason to be excited about the still-in-the-works sci-fi comedy.

Amazon first announced it was developing the 1999 film as an episodic series in 2015, but things escalated last August when Scheer came on board to work on the show. In a new interview with SlashFilm, he revealed that he’s not only turned in his first script for the series, but has some big ideas on how to honor the original film while also updating the premise for the modern age of television.

“It’s going to be so long before people get to see it, I don’t want people to get too burnt out on me telling you what it’s about before it gets to that point,” he said. “But for me, it was really

Star Trek: Discovery episode 8 review: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

James Hunt Nov 7, 2017

Well, Star Trek: Discovery couldn't just keep getting better and better, could it? Spoilers ahead in our review of episode 8...

This review contains spoilers.

Discovery has been improving week on week, so it was inevitable that it might hit a quality downswing eventually. Temporary blip or regression to the mean? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

This week’s episode wasn’t terrible, of course. It was just a little generic. Broadly, I think everything on the planet was quite good (though I’d have liked a little more insight into the Pahvans, not to mention a more tangible design) while everything on Kol’s ship was bad.

Should Star Trek use the F word?

Juliette Harrisson Oct 21, 2017

For the very first time this week, Star Trek: Discovery broke a linguistic taboo. Did it shock, annoy or amuse you?

In one of the lighter moments in last week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery, while working on a way to use Discovery’s spore drive without the tardigrade known as Ripper, Cadet Sylvia Tilly exclaimed, “You guys, this is so fucking cool!” Suddenly realising she was on duty in a military workplace, she immediately apologised, and Lt Paul Stamets reassured her, “It is fucking cool”. It was the first time anyone has ever used ‘the F word’ in canon on Star Trek. Some were amused. Some were horrified.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese to reteam for Teddy Roosevelt biopic

It looks like Martin Scorsese will follow up his currently-in-production mob epic The Irishman by reuniting with Leonardo DiCaprio, although it may not be for the previously reported FBI tale Killers of the Flower Moon or the Dr. H.H. Holmes serial killer film The Devil in the White City.

According to Deadline, the duo are set to collaborate on a biopic of the 26th U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, which was first set up way back in 2005. Originally it was to take its inspiration from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Edmund Morris book The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, with Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) penning the screenplay. However, this new take will instead be based on a script by Scott Bloom.

Roosevelt’s life including military honours, leading the legendary cavalry regiment the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War, before moving into politics where he served as Governor of New York,

Netflix continues its coquettish bid to, if not exactly inherit the TV world, then just buy it instead. Its finance chief spoke recently of the chances, soon, of making a series costing $20m an hour: HBO is already looking at $15m an episode for the forthcoming endgames in Game of Thrones. This time, though, it’s not the tawdry cash stuff that excites me about Netflix: in a joyous first, surely indicative of overpaid staff who might want to get out and splaff their money in cocktail bars more often, it is now offering subtitles in Klingon.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: What to Expect From Episode 3 and Why the Show Will Always Respect Canon
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 1, Episode 2, “The Battle of the Binary Stars.”]

When it comes to CBS All Access’s “Star Trek: Discovery,” the show’s ambitions cannot be defined as modest. “We want to create a world that feels real, and dimensional, and authentic, and not just that reflect, I think, the complicated moral quandaries that define ‘Star Trek,’ but also that bring the audience into a very visceral approach to the feel of the universe,” executive producer Alex Kurtzman told IndieWire.

Fans tuning into the first two episodes Sunday night were in for a wild ride, as the newest iteration of the “Trek” brand subverted all expectations, killing Captain Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) and sentencing Lt. Commander Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) to life in prison as punishment for becoming Starfleet’s first-ever mutineer. Following these two episodes, the question becomes what’s in store for fans going forward — and while Kurtzman didn’t offer up any specific details, he was able

William Shatner Shares Some Great Behind-the-Scenes Stories About Making ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan’

  • Collider.com
We live in a day and age where no one can agree on anything. People are divided on almost every subject imaginable and it’s incredibly rare when a group of people can come together on anything. But if you get a group of Star Trek fans together, no matter their political background, no matter what they think is the best Star Trek show, I’d wager every person in the room would agree with this one statement: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the best Star Trek movie.

Bryan Fuller on his Star Trek: Discovery exit and original plans for an anthology series

Having initially been brought on board to develop and serve as showrunner on CBS’ new series Star Trek: Discovery, Bryan Fuller exited the project this past October.

During an interview with EW, Fuller shared a few words on his departure from the series, stating that: “I got to dream big. I was sad for a week and then I salute the ship and compartmentalize my experience.”

Fuller also revealed that his original idea was to create several serialized anthology shows beginning with Discovery, and taking us through the eras of The Original Series and The Next Generation, before moving ahead to a time yet to be seen in the Trek franchise.

“The original pitch was to do for science-fiction what American Horror Story had done for horror,” Fuller says. “It would platform a universe of Star Trek shows.”

Rumour: CBS developing Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan prequel miniseries

With Star Trek set to make its (hopefully) triumphant return to the small screen this September with Star Trek: Discovery, a rumour has now emerged suggesting that a second show is in the works, revolving around the fan favourite villain Khan Noonien Singh.

According to Geek Exchange, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer – who was brought in as part of the writers room for Discovery – has been developing a prequel miniseries which will explore the time between The Original Series episode ‘Space Seed’ and the 1982 movie sequel.

If you’re unfamiliar with Khan’s story, he is a genetically enhanced superhuman from the 1990s who is exiled from Earth along with his followers, and discovered in stasis by the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in the 23rd century. After a failed attempt to take control of the Enterprise, Khan is banished by Kirk onto
