George Takei is accused of sexual assault by former model, Scott R. Brunton, who told The Hollywood Reporter that after two drinks with the “Star Trek” actor, he passed out and awoke with his “pants down around my ankles” and Takei groping him. Brunton told THR that he met Takei in 1981 at a bar in Hollywood, and they exchanged phone numbers.
Star Trek: Discovery’s fifth episode, Choose Your Pain, introduced Lt. Ash Tyler, a Klingon prisoner of war. Something about Tyler doesn’t quite seem right – Captain Lorca was quick to point out that his story of being held prison by the Klingons didn’t quite add up, given how long he’d survived. Of course, just because one slightly suspicious human is introduced at the same time as a Klingon character is suspiciously absent doesn’t mean they’re the same individual – correlation is not causation, after all.
Is 'Star Trek: Discovery' actor Shazad Latif really the guy behind Voq, as many fans suspect? We put the question to Latif himself.

It didn't take very long for "Star Trek: Discovery" to join the ranks of "Rick and Morty" and "Game of Thrones."
Trekkies at Comic-Con were treated to a new look at CBS All Access’ upcoming series “Star Trek: Discovery,” set to debut in September. It’s the first glimpse of the “Star Trek” reboot since its initial May teaser, but unlike the first trailer, which included only scenes from its first episode, the new preview has action from several episodes spliced together. The new series will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and forms of life, as well as one Starfleet officer who must learn that “to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.” “Star Trek: Discovery” will feature a new ship and characters, while tapping into the ethos of the show’s roots.
Though we went through a LONG dry spell with no Trek on TV, all of that will change this fall with the arrival of Star Trek: Discovery. Today CBS released new images of the series, which has a sprawling cast including Jason Isaacs, Sonequa Martin-Greene, and Michelle Yeoh.
To be fair, Sean Connery and Harrison Ford are two ageless men: movie stars who seem forever preserved in cinematic amber. Ford, 74, still dating Calista Flockhart, 52, has never let an age gap worry him.
As ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ is released – the first movie to be shot at the super high-definition rate of 120 frames per second – here are 10 other times films broke new ground and altered filmmaking for good. This 1987 drama starring Sting and Kathleen Turner is nondescript in almost every way. It had to be transferred to 35mm for exhibition as projectors still showed film.
The return of a heavy-breathing dark lord, first contact like we’ve never seen it before, a humanitarian scrapping with a CGI bear, a 20-storey Paul Rudd – it’s safe to say that in 2016, we’ve seen it all.
Star Trek Beyond isn’t considered a comedy — yet thanks to all the witticisms in a script co-written by Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), the latest sequel decidedly funnier than your average endeavor on the Enterprise.
It’s been 50 years since Captain James T Kirk and pointy-eared pal Spock first strode onto our television screens, bringing us wide-eyed Apollo-era optimism, the world’s first interracial TV snog and furry space critters named Tribbles. It would be another 13 years, in the wake of Star Wars’ spectacular box office success, before the crew of the Enterprise made it to the big screen with 1979’s middling ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’. Since then there have been a round dozen films in total, with a 13th, the Simon Pegg-penned ‘Star Trek: Beyond’, due to hit multiplexes later this month.
Chris Pine, John Cho, Simon Pegg and Zachary Quinto had been scheduled to discuss the film Wednesday morning.
Director J.J. Abrams has led the tributes to Anton Yelchin, who died following a tragic accident at the weekend. Taking to Twitter, Abrams, who directed Yelchin in the first of the rebooted ‘Star Trek’ movies wrote a personal, handwritten note. In an Instagram post, ‘Star Trek’ series co-star Zachary Quinto said: “Our dear friend.
