New Writer Joins Star Trek TV Series

TrekCore is reporting that Kirsten Beyer is joining the Star Trek All Access writers room for next year's TV series. Beyer has written nine Star Trek: Voyager novels since 2009 that continues to adventures of the Voyager crew after the end of the TV series. More importantly, like most Star Trek authors, she has an ability to create interesting stories, characters, favors continuity, and has a deep knowledge of all things Star Trek. The books may seem like an after thought but over the last decade they have maintained their own fairly tight continuity between themselves and the TV series as all of them have moved on to tell stories set after each of their respective TV series. Without the constraint of those series the results have been a long series of books that are very fun to read.

Details from Star Trek Beyond Fan Event, On Set Articles, Simon Pegg Interview

The release of the second trailer for Star Trek Beyond means various media focused websites received the clearances to print articles from their Vancouver set visits while the movie was in production last year. In most cases the information is light since the whole point of the set visits is to literally sell the movie with a lot of cheerleading talk so what is said is rarely much different then what is said in interviews and the promotional talk show circuit. Below are the highlights and links to the full articles.

The full articles on io9.com and Collider. In addition Simon Pegg talked about working on the film with Collider. At last week's reveal of the trailer, Paramount also showed off a few scenes set early in the movie. If ok with spoilers you can find a description at TrekMovie.com. Last but not least, here is another poster for the movie whose look is designed to invoke the Star Trek: The Motion Picture poster.

Star Trek Beyond Trailer #2 and Poster

Tonight Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Star Trek Beyond. Where the previous one almost entirely focused on the action, this one seems to be emphasizing the unknown and the unknown being very dangerous as the trailer makes it look like the Enterprise doesn't survive the encounter. The second trailer is an improvement over the first which was all jokes and action with a much better mix of drama, action, and light humor. The movie will be out on July 22, 2016. Poster after the break.
