Anton Yelchin, Dead at 27

Anton Yelchin died today at age 27.

Actor Anton Yelchin has passed away today at age 27, TMZ reports.

2016 has been a rough year when it comes to celebrity deaths, but the loss of Anton Yelchin has a particular sting due to the actor’s young age and his impressive body of work, ranging from credits like Jodie Foster’s The Beaver to Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive to the Star Trek franchise. According to this morning’s report, Anton Yelchin was killed in a freak accident outside his home that caused his body to be pinned between his car and a brick mailbox pillar, which was attached to a security gate.

Patrick Stewart Is Open to Reprising His Captain Picard Role

What is the first thing that you think of when someone says the name Patrick Stewart? Many people think, Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The 75-year-old was talking to IGN about his new series Blunt Talk. In the interview, Stewart was asked whether we would be seeing him play his most iconic character again. This is what he had to say:

“It’s possible. I think it’s unlikely. But it’s possible. The series wrapped over 25 years ago and we’ve got a rather elderly Captain Picard now. So I don’t know. It would be… it could be entertaining.”

That doesn’t give a definite yes, but it is nice to know that he is up for reprising his role as Picard. I won’t call it a dead issue, due to the fact that the new timeline caused by the new Star Trek movies means any character can be seen again.

Would you love to see a new version of TNG? Something like a continuance of TNG where Picard is the Admiral for a new team on a continuing mission to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before. Or something like that. Let us know.

vsheader

We have added a new segment to our little show that we like to call dimly enough! Versus! We take pop culture irons and pit them against one another!  Weather its a full out death match, race, strategic, piloting skills, battle of the wits or  even skill set.  We will take it to the  max!

For our very first versus piece will will have 2 intergalactic bad guys go against one another!

General Zod (superman)

general_zod_by_rehsup-d67ka55General Dru-Zod is a general in the Kryptonian Army. However, Zod had ambitions to take over the planet Krypton and had little respect for the Kryptonian Council, and as such was banished to the Phantom Zone. For this reason he survived the planet's destruction.

Having served his term, he currently serves once more in New Krypton's military, of which he is the head.

Zod is a frequent enemy of Superman and of the people of Earth, as, prior to the rebuilding of New Krypton, Zod tried to take over the Earth. Zod's two allies, known occasionally as the Disciples of Zod, serve him unquestioningly. Their names have changed many times over the years, but they are currently known as Ursa and Non.

There have also been other versions of Zod over the years; some of which from alternate worlds, or false versions of Krypton; Others have more mysterious origins. All of them, however, posess Zod's cold, merciless determination.

 

Khan Noonien Singh (Star Trek)

BenedictCumberbacthStarTrekIntoDarkness1_0Khan Noonien Singh, commonly shortened to Khan, is a fictional villain in the Star Trek science fiction franchise. The character first appeared in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Space Seed" (1967), and was portrayed by Ricardo Montalbán who reprised his role in the 1982 film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In the 2013 film Star Trek Into Darkness, he is played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The character once controlled more than a quarter of the Earth during the Eugenics Wars of the 1990s. After being revived from suspended animation in 2267 by the crew of the USS Enterprise, Khan attempts to capture the starship, but is thwarted by James T. Kirk and exiled on Ceti Alpha V to create a new society with his people. In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, set fifteen years after "Space Seed", Khan escapes his exile and sets out to exact revenge upon Kirk.

Harve Bennett, executive producer for Star Trek II, chose Khan as the villain for the film. To reflect the time spent marooned on an inhospitable world, Khan was given a costume that looked as though it had been scavenged from different items and showed off Montalbán's physique. Montalbán's portrayal has been positively received by critics and fans; Khan was voted one of the ten greatest film villains by the Online Film Critics Society.

In Star Trek Into Darkness, set in the alternate continuity established in Star Trek (2009), Khan is awakened almost a decade before the events of "Space Seed." Khan is given the false identity "John Harrison" and coerced by Admiral Marcus into building weapons for Starfleet in exchange for the lives of Khan's crew. He ultimately rebels and comes into conflict with the crew of the Enterprise.

With all that said who would you like to see win this intergalactic battle of  evil! Or do you think they would cross each other out!
