The crew of the USS Enterprise look like a bunch of flailing idiots when the camera is stabilized
Every time the Enterprise was attacked, the entire ship shook and people were flung to the floor— it was very exciting, and don’t give me that crap about seat belts— they liked getting slammed to the floor every time a photon missile hit. But big secret, those people are “actors”, meaning that they’re doing a thing called “acting” that is far more evident and far goofier looking when the shaking missile strike cam is stabilized.
Things that will piss you off this morning: Captain Janeway narrates a documentary about how the Earth is the center of the universe
Kate “Captain Janeway” Mulgrew set to narrate a documentary about how god made the Earth and how it is the center of the universe because, you know, that shit makes perfect fucking sense. Michio Kaku and Lawrence Krauss also make appearances, hopefully only because they, as well as Mulgrew, just needed an easy paycheck and a good laugh. And no, the date of the video or link is not April 1st.
I’m going to go cry under a pile of blankets in the corner while pulling on a jug of cheap grain alcohol while listening to Mozart’s Requiem.
IDW is publishing Harlan Ellison’s original teleplay for the Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever”
Harlan Ellison…he’s a sci-fi genius. He’s also a notorious asshole, but don’t hold that against him. He is finally getting a chance to share the original teleplay for “The City on the Edge of Forever”. He was never happy with the changes that were made to the teleplay when the episode was filmed. Even still, it was easily one of the best episodes of the original Star Trek series. Now, we finally get to see the story that he wanted to tell. IDW is publishing the teleplay in June 2014.
