TREKKIE GIRLS CHAT TO SHAZAD LATIF ABOUT RETURNING IN SECTION 31 SERIES.

At London Film and Comic Con last weekend we caught up with Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler and Voq from Star Trek Discovery). He was very gracious and approachable, truly wonderful with the fans and was a pleasure to talk to.

We asked him how the Section 31 series with Michelle Yeoh is progressing:

The head of the CBS said it was about 2 years down the line, so we're maybe a year and a half away but it all depends on the people. Michelle is very busy, it depends on her being free, me being free. It depends if I fit into the timeline. There's loads of things that we don't know and they have to write it. We'll know more in a year.

Voyager’s Robert Picardo in talks to appear in Star Trek: Picard

It’s a cameo that makes perfect sense and at London Film and Comic Con last weekend, Robert Picardo (The EMH and Dr Zimmerman from Star Trek Voyager) confirmed that his agent was in talks with CBS to possibly return in Season 2 of Star Trek Picard.

“I am pleased that they (CBS) have expressed interest in me. They have reached out to my agent about next season. So I’m looking forward to seeing what it is. As you know I play two characters, primarily the Doctor but also Lewis Zimmerman.”

Robert Picardo - Sunday 28th July, LFCC.

Check out the full interview here.

We sincerely hope we see Picardo in the … Continue Reading ››

The Deep Space Nine Documentary - What We Left Behind - what did we think of the UK cinema screening?

More Star Trek designs added to Wild Bangarang collection.

We posted a review some weeks back on the new range of official Star Trek apparel from Wild Bangarang which we instantly fell in love with so we were thrilled to hear from them again to say they had added to their range.

They have kindly sent us these products however we only review and recommend products we like.

Newly added to the collection include Klingon leggings and a dress, Romulan leggings and the Juan Ortiz retro prints - which you may remember from the 50th Anniversary art collections.

Wild Bangarang Star Trek Leggings Review + Discount Code

If you've been watching our Friday Night Live Chats you'll know that we love sharing Star Trek Bounding ideas. If you're unfamiliar with the term it simply refers to dressing in a subtle way to express your fandom through clothing and accessories. They always say to dress for the job you want and ours is Starfleet!

That's why we were very excited when Wild Bangarang got in touch and asked if we'd review their range of officially licensed Star Trek apparel.

Our usual disclaimer, we only review stuff we like. We know licensee holders pass vigorous standards to sell Star Trek products so if we don't like something, it just means it's not our taste. We don't want to use our little voice on the internet … Continue Reading ››
