Star Trek: The Next Generation Remaster on Netflix

If it has been awhile since you saw an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation and do not already own the Blu-ray season conversions, then this might be the time to give your Netflix subscription a workout as the HD remastered versions of the episodes are now streaming on the service which include additional bug fixes to a few episodes that fans noticed from the initial release. Sadly the sales did not meet CBS Entertainment's expectations so there are no plans for a Blu-ray or remaster release release of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine or Star Trek: Voyager. Chances are that this will probably be the last real (not rumor) TV related news for the foreseeable future as CBS has made it clear that outside of licensing, they genuinely see zero future potential in the Star Trek franchise outside of Paramount's movies.

Star Trek 3 Set Images Introduce New Alien

New images and a video (yanked by Paramount under DMCA) by Screen Crush from the set of Star Trek Beyond show off a new alien as played by Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service). As Screen Crush's gifs (below) show, the alien and Chris Pine (Kirk) are on top of something with Pine wearing what almost seems like a outdoor away team type Starfleet uniform especially when you compare it to the more standard ship's uniform that Simon Pegg (Scotty) is wearing. Of a now this is literally the most we know about the movie that is set to come out next year. At least it something I guess. The full gallery of images can be found here.
