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.
You all kept asking so we have delivered. Every Friday night at 21:00 UTC during Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery we will host a Friday night livestream chat to share our reaction to the episode, speculate what is happening all whilst indulging in Star Trek themed cocktails!
To make it a bit different from all the rest we're trying to keep it around 30 - 45 mins long and to include the following segments:
=^= Trek themed Cocktails =^= Trek-Bounding ideas (normal attire trekified) =^= What The Spock!? =^= Who's Meme is that anyway? =^=Disco Star of the week.
Our first livestream was a lot of fun as we discussed Angels, red signals and how to make Jippers (minus a beach). We currently stream to Facebook Live but hoping to stream to our Continue Reading ››
The two hosts Heather Barker (@LLAPawsper) and Jeff Hulit (@WarpFactorJeff) have been providing a review of each Star Trek Discovery episode. Whilst the series is on Hiatus, they are deep diving into the characters.
When the opportunity to deep dive on the topic of L'Rell's character, I put in a request to participate and was fortunate enough to appear along with Jeff, Heather and Anika (@manicpixiedane) who beautifully coined the term Social Justice Klingon Warrior Princess!
Before I appeared on the show I pondered which way to approach the discussion and that led me to question why I am so intrigued by L'Rell? I think … Continue Reading ››
The first season of Star Trek Discovery was in our opinion the strongest opening of any Star Trek series.
The story about the soldier and the general which Burham narates was the perfect analogy for the first season. Burham experiences fear (the encounter with the Klingon) which creates a chain of events that happens very fast. Her actions to protect her Captain can be explained when we learn how her parents were killed by Klingons and the maternal relationship she has with Georgiou.
Looking back we realise how much empathy we have had with Burnham. We have been on this crazy journey with her. Michael and the crew have been on a warp speed, spore speed, non stop race against some deadly foes, they have been deceived, hurt and manipulated since day one. … Continue Reading ››
If you're fortunate enough to watch Star Trek Discovery in North America then you get the benefit of enjoying a respectable start time (Sunday evenings make for great TV watching) and the collective benefit of sharing your thoughts immediately with others either with After Trek or on social Media.
Whilst watching on Netflix certainly has its advantages, a launch time of Monday morning isn't exactly sociable or viable watching time for most. This results in many of us taking social media blackout mondays.
When we saw that many of the Discovery actors were partaking in a live tweet along to the season one finale, we felt more envious than Harry Kim at a promotion ceremony. So we are having our own!!
Join us and the following for our tweet along tomorrow night 20:00 GMT with: Sonequa Martin-Green, Mary Wise, Jason Isaacs, William Shatner,Damien - The Irish … Continue Reading ››
Happy New Year to all our readers. Thank you for continuing to follow our Trek into fandom. Once again we have another very exciting year ahead of us. Make sure you check out our Future Events page to see which events we'll be attending this year. We hope to you at some, if not all.
Star Trek Discovery restarts the second half of Season One in a matter of hours on the 7th January (US and Canada) and 8th January everywhere else on Netflix.
At the end of 'Into the Forest I Go' we all saw Captain Lorca override the spore navigation drive. But where did he send them?
What did Lorca DO!? Since the second episode of Discovery we have been back and forth with where we stand on Lorca. These characters are deeper than the classic goodie/baddie archetypes so we are happy to indulge … Continue Reading ››
On the 5th of November some lucky Trekkies from around the UK were invited to special Star Trek Discovery Fan event in London hosted by Netflix. Including an Exhibition of props, viewing of the latest episode and Q&A with Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham), Jason Isaacs (Captain Lorca), Shazad Latiff (Ash Tyler) and Aaron Harberts (Executive Producer).
The main event was an early viewing of the latest episode. The first to be written by Star Trek Novelist Kirsten Beyer. The audience LOVED it, especially the "needs of the many" conversation between Burnham and Tyler.
The highlight of the event was the Question and Answer session with Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham), Jason … Continue Reading ››
24th Century Socialites. 21st Century high functioning nerds. We go to Star Trek Conventions and talk about Star Trek a lot.
