There was \”Star Trek: The Motion Picture,\” and it was, well, so-so.
Then there was the re-do with added footage that ABC aired on TV
in the 80s, which was subsequently released on video, and it wasn\’t too bad.
Now, director Robert Wise is finally preparing the \”director\’s cut\” version,
which he says won\’t suck nearly as much.

Remember the good old days (i.e. just a few years ago) when we could count on all Star Trek games to, well, suck? Then we got “Voyager: Elite Force,” and now we’re getting this preview of DS9: Dominion Wars, which looks to be another pretty darn cool game.

Recently rebranded “The National Network” to coincide with their acquisition of all WWF programming (go figure), TNN has acquired the rights to three Star Trek series (all but the ’60s original). Also in this report: a quick summary of all which is known about the next Trek movie.
No one is surprised by this, but I have to list it for completeness: Brent Spiner is now signed for the next Trek movie. Read all about it. There were rumors during the production of ST:Insurrection that Spiner wanted his character, Data, to be killed during the movie, as he reportedly believed he was getting too old to play an ageless android.

Like we all didn’t know this one was coming.
reports that Patrick Stewart has been signed for the
inevitable tenth “Star Trek” movie. (This strongly implies
