We’re less than a month away from the third season premiere of WGN America’s hit horror series Salem (yes, I’m counting), and the powers-that-be have unleashed a new video boasting some exciting new footage.
Today marks the 25th Anniversary of Stark Trek: The Next Generation's pilot, Encounter at Farpoint, premiere. That's 25 years since Picard stared out into the great and infinite vastness of space and said "Let's see what's out there." To celebrate, here's 25 things you might not know about the seminal series.
Though it's one of the most beloved franchises in sci-fi history, fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation have been left to wonder exactly what has been going on with Capt. Picard & Co. in the decades since the series went off the air. Well, wonder no more.
There's one thing that can't be argued with about Star Trek: Voyager: It's that the series took a new turn—make that a very sexy new turn—with the arrival of Jeri Ryan as former Borg drone Seven of Nine during the sci-fi show's third season. It was a shift in focus that had co-star Robert Beltran, who played Commander Chakotay, rather displeased.
Despite decent ratings, Fox decided to pull the plug on the big-budget time travel drama Terra Nova last season. The worst part? The season finale was arguably the best episode yet, and set up some great cliffhangers. Luckily, former producer Brannon Braga has opened up about what could have been.
Late last week at the Fox TCA, Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly stated that Terra Nova's first season was being planned for 13 episodes only, and not the 22 it might otherwise get if it got good ratings, due to the complex production.
When former Borg drone Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) was added to the Star Trek: Voyager cast back in 1997 during the show's third season, some people complained she was too sexy for Trek. Today, former producer Brannon Braga defends the decision to add Seven to Voyager; and in the process calls Captain Kirk a sex addict.
The blame game about who and what killed Star Trek as a franchise back in 2005 is back on again today. First it was Rick Berman and Connor Trinneer, now it's former Trek producer Brannon Braga's turn to ask us to stop putting the blame on them, saying all this is 'absurd.'
