David Gerrold is known as the man who created Tribbles, since he was the writer of the famous Star Trek episode “The Trouble with Tribbles”. During Big Apple Comic Con 2019, one fan asked if he had a favorite part during this episode, and it turns out he does – and it involves Scotty!
A fan at Big Apple Comic Con 2019 was dressed as a handmaiden from Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, and was part of the audience at the William Shatner panel. While asking a question during this panel, Shatner asked who she was dressed as, which led to a brief explanation of what the series is about.
This ultimately led to Shatner going off on a tangent about how he and his generation do not understand modern feminism.
Eventually, the audience member was able to ask her question, but you can hear that in our full panel video.
A fan at Big Apple Comic Con 2019 asked William Shatner about Riverside, Iowa, where Captain Kirk originates from in the original Star Trek series.
This led Shatner to reminisce about his time working on the “Invasion Iowa” docu-series, where he and a film crew invaded this town to film a fictional sci-fi movie while the town had no idea they were the ones actually being filmed.
Check out the full panel from Big Apple Comic Con 2019 with Captain Kirk from the original “Star Trek” himself, William Shatner!
Some things discussed include his thoughts on the new Twilight Zone and memories of working on the original, a discussion about how he made his documentary “Invasion Iowa” and why he should probably never go back there again, a medical school with a facility secretly named after him, and more.
Space. The final frontier. This is the review of the “Star Trek FAQ” book. It’s 400 page-long mission, to explore strange merchandise and pop-culture, to seek out new stories and new statistics, to boldly go where no FAQ book has gone before. Does this book from Applause succeed, or was there an error with the transporter machine that caused it to horribly deform and die before our eyes? Okay, nothing can be that bad, but let’s take a look at this FAQ.
Written by Mark Clark, who has also written about film history in other books and journals, this sourcebook is everything you ever wanted to know about the original Trek series from the 60’s. While there is a thumbnail guide to all of the episodes of the show, this is not a book simply looking at each episode of the series, but is the story of the origins of Trek, what happened once it hit the airwaves, and how it has affected sci-fi since then.
