Plots from Seinfeld if the Show Was Running Today

Like plots from the imaginary eighth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, @SeinfeldToday looks at the show about nothing right now. The characters put Etsy to terrible use, make mistakes with Yelp and argue obsessively about Game of Thrones. Link -via Pleated Jeans

Data, Geordi LaForge and Neil deGrasse Tyson

Celebrity physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts a podcast called Star Talk. He recently invited Data and Geordi LaForge, the actors who played Brent Spiner and LeVar Burton on Star Trek: The Next Generation,* onto the show. You can listen to it at the link.

Which Science Fiction Franchises Depict Space Warfare the Most Accurately?

It’s all speculative, of course. Humans have never engaged in a space naval battle…that we know about it. Star Trek and the like aren’t real, but physics is. So Foreign Policy interviewed naval analyist Chris Weuve about the real science behind interplanetary combat in science fiction: FP: What about ships turning in space like airplanes? CW: Babylon 5 was closer [...]

The Cast of Star Trek Sings “Call Me Maybe”

(Video Link) Thanks to YouTube user Zyphorg, the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation can collectively sing Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” Lots of Worf and Beverly Crusher clips.

If you’re a Trek fan, there’s an embarrassment of riches for you on Twitter — you can follow cast members including Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton, Brent Spiner, heck — even Shatner and Nimoy are tweeting! But while their feeds are great, they’re not the best. The best Twitter feed for Trek fans (especially [...]


(YouTube link) Worf, the Chief of Security on the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation, always had an opinion, but no one ever agreed with him. Why? On the surface, it appeared to be because of his warlike Klingon temper. However, I believe his frustration was a simple way to introduce explanations of other character’s [...]

Plots From Unaired 8th Season Episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation

Brent Spiner’s Patrick Stewart Impression

(Video Link) Brent Spiner, the actor who played Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation, does a really good impersonation of Patrick Stewart, the actor who played Jean-Luc Picard. In fact, it was good enough to fool Stewart’s wife on the phone — at least for a while. Here’s a video of Spiner demonstrating this talent [...]

Fashion It So

Now, here’s a blog on an extremely narrow subject that many will find fascinating. Fashion It So is all about the clothing and costumes seen on the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation.
