Meyer: Revitalizing Star Trek

Friday, September 26th, 2014


After the rather lackluster Star Trek: The Motion Picture, bringing in Trek newcomer Nicholas Meyer put the Trek movies back on the right track.

Meyer  didn’t hold a high opinion of Star Trek at first. When told by a Paramount executive that he should take the job of directing Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, he said, “Is that the one with the guy with pointy ears and they all wear pajamas?”

Star Trek Magazine Preview

Thursday, November 5th, 2009


Star Trek Magazine issue #22 is on sale now, and included in this issue are the top ten Star Trek villains.

Most fans can easily name their favorite Star Trek villains, but just what makes a good Star Trek villain? In Star Trek Magazine, Lance Parkin examines the effects of Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan on the rest of the franchise.

“The movies have tended to have stronger, or at least more blatant, villains than the television series, and the reason for that can be summed up in one word: “Khaaaaaannnn!!!!” writes Parkin. “The second season episode Space Seed and its movie sequel Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan presented the show with a rare super-villain. Khan is a warrior scientist; a futurist visionary from the unenlightened past; a man of passion and cold strategies. Movies can’t be as sedentary as some television episodes, much of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Enterprise seems to consist of characters sat around a table explaining to each other what we all just watched in the last ten minutes. They need more pace, more of an impetus to action. More action.”
