If you’ve been waiting a long time to see the next Star Trek movie, you’ll have to wait just a bit longer.
Paramount Pictures announced this week that “Star Trek: Beyond” has been pushed back to July 22 — in what might be a huge boost of confidence for the film.
That’s because instead of facing off against the premiere of two rather unknown films, it will instead go head-to-head with Guy Ritchie’s planned epic “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.”
What will this mean for the Star Trek franchise? Read all about it on our sister site, 1701News.
We all remember Jennifer Lien playing the sweet and short-lived Kes in “Star Trek: Voyager,” but a lot has changed over the last decade or so.
Lien was practically unrecognizable in her mug shots posted by a Tennessee sheriff’s office after she was arrested for indecent exposure. Lien apparently has had a number of run-ins with the law in recent months, and apparently is going through some serious issues.
How much are you willing to pay for a piece of Star Trek history? Some anonymous Craigslist poster in Miami thinks you’d be willing to part with $40 million to own what he claims are the original blooper reels Gene Roddenberry showed at conventions in the 1970s featuring actors and scenes from the original “Star Trek.”
And just in case you don’t think the reels are for real, the poster told 1701News that he’d be happy to prove it to anyone — provided they pay a non-refundable $250,000 deposit.
But are they real? We explore that question and these dubious claims at 1701News.
If you live in China, then chances are you’re not reading this right now (Airlock Alpha is banned in China). But if you somehow broke through the firewall, we have good news for you: Star Trek is on its way to a computer near you!

Finally, in a little bit of casting news, Zoe Saldana already has a lot of work lined up for once she’s done filming “Star Trek: Beyond.” The Uhura actress is set to play Mrs. Molle in the adaptation of Joe Kelly’s “I Kill Giants.”
Saldana plans on making a killing of her own, and we have all the details right here.
