Sitting at a table in the convention food court on Sunday, we received a tweet from one of our followers congratulating us on an award we had won from Ex Astris Scientia. Wait what? An award? We quickly checked out ex-astris-scientia.org and sure enough, we had won the EAE award for November 2010. Just about any Trek fan knows that Ex Astris Scientia is an internet authority on all things Star Trek canon and EAS has been giving out it's EAE awards since 1999. We're so thrilled and honored to receive the award!
Here's what Ex Astris Scientia had to say about us:CONTINUE READING >>

Welcome to Day 3 of our live coverage of the Austin Comic-con 2010. We've had a blast the last couple of days and WizardWorld puts on a heckuva show. We'll be rooming the convention floor today taking photos and commenting on what we see. Check out the full coverage below.
Here's our live coverage of the Austin Comic-con, Day 2. We had a blast covering Day 1 and look forward to all of the great Q&A sessions Day 2 has to offer. Walter Koenig has a scheduled Q&A session today, plus Billy D. Williams & Ray Park. We'll be bringing you those and all the wild stuff that happens on the show floor. Check out our full coverage below.
Check out our live coverage of the Austin Comic-con Day 1 below. Today's coverage could be filed under "Not Star Trek, but still awesome." Walter Koenig's Q&A will be tomorrow, but today we'll be covering all the awesome costumes & star Q&As we can handle. Enjoy!
The Austin Comic-con is upon us and is shaping up to be quite a show. Star Trek's Walter Koenig will be in attendance with a full Q&A scheduled for Saturday. We'll be there all three days live blogging the event. We're a little sad that only one Trek star is in attendance, but The Hulk, The Six Million Dollar Man, & The Soup Nazi will be there to dazzle and entertain. We're actually looking forward to the Lou Ferrigno Q&A. We loved the Incredible Hulk, but we're extra fond of Lou's role on "King of Queens". Ya know, he played himself. Good Stuff. Be sure to check back starting tomorrow for our live coverage.

What kid didn’t wish that just once their mom would say, “Now put that book down! Turn that TV on! And watch some Star Trek!” Ok, maybe it was just me, but come on, how cool would that have been? Now, if you take one of Professor Daryl Frazetti’s courses that may become a reality. Many of you may know Daryl from the documentaries “Trekkies” and “Trekkies 2.” More recently he’s using his knowledge of Star Trek and other science fiction in the Anthropology courses he teaches and a book he is currently writing. To help in the data collection for his upcoming book, “The Anthropology of Star Trek” he has created a short Star Trek Fandom survey that you can take now through the end of November.CONTINUE READING >>
