This Star Trek Supercut Idea Continues to Be Some Kind of Excellent

Star Trek’s infamous technobabble as its heroes boldly

go about exploring all kinds of weird and wonderful alien beings , technologies, and worlds means that, for us mere contemporary humans, it’s often hard to equate just what futuristic weirdness they’re dealing with. And so, we get to one of the most useful phrases in the Starfleet handbook: “Some kind of...

Bryan Fuller's Original Plans For Star Trek: Discovery's Mirror Universe Were So Much Better Than What We Got

Bryan Fuller's Original Plans For Star Trek: Discovery's Mirror Universe Were So Much Better Than What We Got

Although its sophomore season did a

much better job of balancing self-interrogation with nostalgia for Star Trek’s past , the debut season of Discovery creatively flatlined with its full-on retreat into the Mirror Universe. Even before original series architect Bryan Fuller left the show , there were plans to go to Trek’s iconic alt-reality ...but they sound so much more fascinating than

The Scientists Who Won't Give Up on the Warp Drive

The Scientists Who Won't Give Up on the Warp Drive

For most of us, traveling faster than the cosmic speed limit—the speed of light—is a science-fiction fantasy that breaks the very foundation of modern physics. But in the eyes of an engineering undergrad at the University of Alabama in Huntsville named Joseph Agnew, it’s a theory worthy of study.

The idea first came to Agnew in high school, when he became enamored of the warp drives he saw in...

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s Must-Watch Episodes

Last week, we

gave you a guide to the highs of Star Trek at its apex of idealistic sci-fi in The Next Generation.

Oh, Disney Just Straight Up Has a Holodeck Now

Oh, Disney Just Straight Up Has a Holodeck Now

Okay, so the limitation of modern projection and tracking technology means that the holograms themselves have been replaced by...a bowler hat. But c’mon. You tell me at least one nerd in the Magic Kingdom hasn’t tried to boot up

Dixon Hill or Janeway Lambda-One on that thing.

While none of us can

go to a Disney Park right now thanks to the novel coronavirus, Disney has been trying to keep a...

10 Shows I'm Too Lazy to Watch, and You're Gonna Hate Me for It

10 Shows I'm Too Lazy to Watch, and You're Gonna Hate Me for It

We all have a list.

You know the one . It’s your list of TV shows friends or family have recommended with every ounce of their being. More than likely, this is a very long list. And now, during a global pandemic when many of us are self-quarantined , one would think it’s the perfect time to start crossing shows off that list. I’ve been doing that, but...I’ve also been cheating.

Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Must-Watch Episodes

Want to dive into this classic series but don’t know where to start beyond “Maybe all of it if I have the time?” We’re here to help.

Location Tracking, DIY Face Masks, and the Stalk Market: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

Location Tracking, DIY Face Masks, and the Stalk Market: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

Happy Easter, everyone! Or, as I like to call it, “The Day Before I Regret Eating All Those Chocolate Bunnies.” Here’s a question for you, dear reader: Do you start with the ears or the tail first? Or, if you failed decision-making 101 in adulting school and now break out in a nervous sweat at the very idea of multiple-choice scenarios, I suppose you could always just inhale the entire...

These Hilarious Star Trek Videos Turn Bloopers Into Canon

Boy, there sure was a lot more high-fiving on

the Enterprise than I remember.

Star Trek: The Next Generation was, for all its goofiness, played relatively straight. It was a serious sort of show , even if absurd things sometimes happened. It did not, as a rule, have a lot of gags. Star Trek INtakes by YouTuber Ryan’s Edits changes that, and in the process renders Star Trek’s vibe absolutely...

Toys and Collectibles Action figures, statues, exclusives, and other merchandise. Beware: if you look here, you’re probably going to spend some money afterwards.

That’s it. That’s the blog.

Star Trek has always had a bit of a questionable history with merchandise. I mean, these days we get great collectibles, but when the shows were actually airing, it was kind of hard to make shows more about...

10 of TV's Best 'Spa Day' Episodes for a Little R&R

Sometimes you’ve got to just treat yourself—especially when you’re stuck at home during covid-19 related

social distancing . For me, that means doing more at-home spa days , something plenty of TV’s best characters have done from time to time. Of course, it usually doesn’t turn out so well.

We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite “spa day” episodes or scenes from beloved genre...

Even though technology is allowing for

plenty of ways to try and keep your tabletop and boardgame groups going during social distancing, the fact of the matter is it’s really hard right now to actually play tabletop RPGs . That doesn’t mean you can’t spend some of your free time engaging with those worlds though, thanks to some choice rulebooks that are as great to just read as they are to...

Anson Mount's Reaction to Learning He Was Playing Captain Pike on Star Trek Is Adorable

Anson Mount's Reaction to Learning He Was Playing Captain Pike on Star Trek Is Adorable

Making movies and TV can often be a secretive business—especially in nerdy genre fields where fans are eager to learn the ins and outs of production as soon as they can. Sometimes, that means a bit of skullduggery and that even actors don’t know the parts they’re truly auditioning for. For a Star Trek diehard like Anson Mount, that lead to a wonderful surprise.

Watch These 5 Genre Series You’ve Always Wanted to Try, Now That You Have All the Time

We’ve all said it. We’ve nodded along as our friends and

co-workers gush about a series , pulled it up on our phones and panic-glared at the number of episodes , and then politely said “I’ll check it out when I’ve got the time!” knowing full well that we will never have the time. Well, times have changed ...and suddenly we do have the time. So here are some options to bite the bullet with.

Star Trek: Picard's Best Callbacks to The Next Generation

For better or worse, Star Trek: Picard leaned heavily into the nostalgia of its returning hero. Over the course of its recently concluded first season, this didn’t just mean bringing back

familiar faces , it meant many sweet callbacks to the beloved Next Generation for fans to spot over its 10-episode run.

Star Trek: Picard Didn't Know How It Felt About Jean-Luc Until It Was Too Late

Star Trek: Picard Didn't Know How It Felt About Jean-Luc Until It Was Too Late

Star Trek: Picard kicked off its season with a lot of ideas about its titular hero. What did it mean that a man like Jean-Luc Picard had not just retired, but quit the utopian organization he’d dedicated his life to? How did he feel about its decline? Is there space for a man like him in a modern interpretation of Star Trek’s future? In the end, sadly, the series was seemingly not as...

These Machine Learning-Enhanced Clips Might Be Our Only Chance of Seeing HD Star Trek: Voyager Any Time Soon

The story of why

we’ve yet to see  high definition re-releases of Star Trek: Voyager and Deep Space Nine akin to theBlu-ray releases of The Next Generation is long known at this point. Sadly, the process is too complex and involved, and the footage is too difficult to unmesh from its CG special effects, for it to be worth it to CBS. At least fans are stepping in to give us a glimpse at what...
