It's not as funny as that Star Trek: The Next Generation blooper reel from a few weeks ago, but what this recently unearthed costume and make-up test footage lacks in humor in more than makes up for in creepiness, especially via its bizarre musical accompaniment. I don't want to spoil it for you, but in case you… » 1/08/13 9:20am 1/08/13 9:20am

How George R.R. Martin's Writing Advice Led To One Of Star Trek's…

Few episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation are more thought-provoking, or emblematic, than "Measure of a Man," the episode where Data is put on trial to determine whether he's a person or just Starfleet's property.

Star Trek: The Next Generation is brand new all over again

Watch Star Trek's John de Lancie playing a godlike entity on My Little…

You read that right. John "Q" de Lancie is playing an omnipotent Q-like character in the season premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic — and he's forcing the ponies to play his games. Or else. But which pony is Jean-Luc Picard? (And which pony will have the gumption to sock Q in the nose, like Sisko?) » 9/12/11 4:09pm 9/12/11 4:09pm
