Εμένα μου βρήκε το raktajino. Βασικά, πρέπει να είναι σχετικά καινούριο και διαμορφώνεται σιγά σιγά με αυτά που λένε οι παίκτες. Αν είχε λιγότερες πιθανές απαντήσεις, δηλ. μόνο 'ναι', 'όχι' και 'άγνωστο', ίσως ήταν πιο δυνατό. Είναι η ιντερνετική έκδοση ενός παιχνιδιού που είχε κυκλοφορήσει πριν λίγα χρόνια (γενικά 20Q, όχι Star Trek), όχι όμως και στην Ελλάδα. Το είχε φέρει ένας φίλος μου από Αγγλία και με είχε ενθουσιάσει, έβρισκε τα πάντα! Πάντως, το Star Trek 20Q είναι ήδη πολύ καλό και πιστεύω ότι μετά από κάποιο διάστημα που θα έχει ακόμη περισσότερα δεδομένα θα είναι άπαιχτο!

TrekInk: First Look At Star Trek: The Complete Comic Book Collection DVD August 5, 2008

by Alex Fletcher , Filed under: Comics, DVD , trackback

 

gitboxs.jpg

 

A complete collection of Star Trek comics all in one small package, readily available and inexpensively–is it possible? The answer coming from Graphic Imaging Technology this Fall is a big yes, with a DVD with scans of every Trek comic book released from 1967 to 2002 in an easily browsable archive. TrekMovie has an exclusive first look at Star Trek The Complete Comic Book Collection.

 

 

 

This September, GITCorp (Graphic Imaging Technology) is releasing the first of three DVD packages containing archives of the Star Trek comics. This first release, due September 1st, has an expected retail price of $49.99, and contains every single published Star Trek comic book from the first Gold Key Comics in 1967 through to the Wildstorm comics published up until 2002*. The only comics not included in the DVD archive are those from the current Trek comic licensee, IDW. All told, there are over 500 individual issues, comprising one-shot graphic novels, full series, mini-series, and more.

 

Each issue is being scanned by the company, cover to cover, including all of the advertising, and stored in individual PDF archives. GITCorp is using an interface similar to their prior DVD comic collections to access the PDFs in the collection. The DVDs can be used on both Windows and Macintosh computers.

From the first Gold Keys to the last Wildstorms, all in one box

Putting together a collection spanning four decades has not been an easy task, especially due to the fact that Trek comics have been produced by so many different publishers over the years. According to Ray Pelosi from GITCorp, it has been a daunting to get all the comics and to sort out all the licensing issues required to bring it to market and he thanks CBS Products for all the help they provided to make it all happen.

Box Artwork for the first release has just been finalized and TrekMovie has an exclusive first look. The cover, seen above, is based on the cover of the third issue of the original Marvel Comics series (the adaptation of the first Motion Picture). Unfortunately, the original artwork was unusable, but Mike Collins, the original artist, agreed to redo the image for use on the DVD set.

More to come from GIT

Once this first collection is released, two more are planned to tie in with the upcoming Star Trek movie release. The first of these is an Original Series set, that will contain all of the comic books based on the crew of Captain Kirk, including crossover issues, and will also contain the “Early Voyages” series featuring Captain Pike in the stories that take place not long after the events of the original pilot, “The Cage”. This set is expected to be released around the time of the new movie, and has a suggested retail price of $29.99.

 

The third collection on the agenda is a movie related set, possibly including images, trailers, and so forth from the new movie. The suggested price would be $9.99, and the set would be available in movie theatres. The precise details have not yet been confirmed, but when they are, we’ll let you know.

 

Get your collection

Star Trek The Complete Comic Book Collection DVD works with both Windows and Macintosh computers. It arrives September 1st and is available for preorder now from Amazon for $49.95.

Convention Pioneer Joan Winston Has Passed Away September 12, 2008

by John Tenuto , Filed under: Conventions/Events/Attractions, Fandom , trackback

 

 

TrekMovie has been informed that Joan ("Joannie") Winston, one of the founders of the first Star Trek conventions and author of "The Making of the Star Trek Conventions," passed away September 11th at age 77. According to her family, Joan died in her sleep at an assisted living center in New York.

 

trekkies2_379s.jpg

 

Joan Winston’s contributions to Star Trek fandom are legion. She was one of the organizers (aka "The Committe") of the original Trek conventions during the 1970s, the story of which is chronicled in her excellent 1977 book "The Making of the Trek Conventions." Winston was also a co-writer of the classic 1975 text "Star Trek Lives!" where she wrote about her visit to the Star Trek set during the filming of the episode "Turnabout Intruder." Winston also wrote fan fiction and even edited a fanzine ("Number One") all about William Riker. Winston continued attending and speaking at conventions into this decade, with her last appearance at Shore Leave in 2006. Winston was featured in the 2005 documentary Trekkies 2. In 2007, she was named the 4th most influential Star Trek fan of all time by Trekcore.com.

Winston’s book on conventions

Winston, who at the time worked for CBS and ABC was instrumental in introducing the main cast and crew of Star Trek to the notion of attending the world of conventions. Winston was a key source for William Shatner’s 1999 book on Trek fans and conventions, "Get a Life!" In the book Shatner describes Winston as "bright, bubbly, and energetic beyond every law of human physiology and comprehension," and Shatner goes on to thank Winston for "finally opening my eyes about Star Trek conventions and fans." About these early conventions, Winston is quoted by Shatner as saying:

There were people who found a friend, that was the most important - (starts to get emotional). Now, I’m getting all - because all the really good friends I’ve ever made came through Star Trek. I’ve also seen handicapped people and people who are socially challenged literally turn their lives around because of the love and acceptance and friendship they’ve found at the conventions.

 

This week, the Star Trek community has lost a friend. Winston was a pioneer who helped shaped Star Trek fandom. Thanks, Joan, and we’ll miss you. To learn more about Joan and her contribution to Trek fandom, both her "The Making of Star Trek Conventions" book as well as Shatner’s "Get A Life!" are highly recommended.

 

Services for Joan will be held Sunday September 14th, 2008 at the Plaza Funeral Home located at 630 Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan at 9:30am and fans are invited to attend. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale located at 5901 Palisade Avenue, Bronx , NY 10471, who cared for her in her final months.

George Takei and his longtime partner, Brad Altman, have agreed to live long and prosper together.

 

 

 

Takei, 71, and Altman, 54, were married Sunday [sept. 14] in a multicultural ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum that featured a Buddhist priest, Native American wedding bands, a Japanese Koto harp and a bagpipe procession.

 

The couple, both clad in white dinner jackets with black pants, made a grand entrance to the tune of "One Singular Sensation" from the Broadway musical "A Chorus Line." They stepped into a circle of yellow roses and lilies, where they shared a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and were wed by a Buddhist priest.

 

The couple, who have been together for 21 years, wrote their own vows.

 

Altman said that he had called Takei many things during their two decades together — "life partner, significant other" — but that their marriage represented "a dream come true for me."

 

"I can add 'my husband' to the list of things I call you," he said.

 

Takei called his longtime partner an "organized, detail-obsessed, punctuality-driven control freak."

 

"I'm easygoing with details, so we're a good fit," he said in the trademark baritone recognizable to all "Star Trek" and Howard Stern fans.

 

"I vow to care for you as you've cared for me ... and to love you as my husband and the only man in my life," Takei said as he held Altman's hands.

 

The priest then pronounced them "spouses for life." A bagpiper played as the newlyweds walked out, followed by friends, family and a few members of the press.

 

Takei said he and Altman chose to make their wedding public — and have been outspoken gay-rights advocates for years — for the sake of democracy.

 

"We have a relationship that's been stronger and longer-lived than some of our straight friends, and yet we were not equal," Takei told The Associated Press before the ceremony. "What this does is give us that dignity; (it's) being part of the American system and being whole. We're making the American system whole as well, as America is becoming more equal."

 

Such activism is nothing new for Takei. He participated in the civil rights movement, served as a Democratic delegate in 1972 and fought for redress for those — like his own family — who were forced into internment camps after World War II.

 

"I grew up determined not to be marginalized," he said. "That served as an incentive for me to be proactive."

 

He and Altman were among the first couples to receive a marriage license in West Hollywood when the state began granting licenses to gay couples on June 17.

 

"A quarter century ago, when I first met Brad, (marriage) was the farthest thing from our imagination," Takei said. "But what seemed impossible at one time becomes, over the passage of time, more and more 'what if' and 'why not.' We have to participate in moving society along to be a better democracy."

 

Wedding guests included "Star Trek" stars Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols, who served as best man and best lady, Hollywood executives, local and national government officials and the couple's relatives from around the world.

 

Keeping with the multicultural theme, guests dined on Asian/Baja Californian fusion cuisine and took home Japanese tea-ceremony treats in boxes printed with the phrase: "May sweet equality live long and prosper."

 

The "Star Trek" star and his manager plan to honeymoon in Argentina and Peru.

Έπρεπε εδώ και μέρες να κάνω μια εργασία για το ΕΑΠ σε σχέση με το critical thinking (ναι, και τώρα καταλάβατε γιατί ξημεροβραδιαζόμουν στο forum...)

Τεσπα, εκεί που έψαχνα λοιπόν, τι πέτυχα; Ένα άρθρο που περιγράφει το Star Trek ως τρόπο καλλιέργειας της κριτικής σκέψης στους μαθητές!

Από το σχετικό λήμμα στην wikipedia για την ταινία. Prequel comic:

 

From January 2009, IDW Publishing will release a comic book entitled Star Trek: Countdown, presenting Nero's backstory and bridging the gap between the film and the old Spock's last appearance in The Next Generation episode "Unification". It also features the characters Jean-Luc Picard and Data, following the events of Star Trek Nemesis.[67] The comic was written by Orci, Kurtzman, Tim Jones and Mike Johnson, and drawn by David Messina.[107][108] The story came about because Anthony Pascale, editor of TrekMovie.com, kept requesting a way of having The Next Generation "pass the baton" back to the original characters.[109] When asked whether the filmmakers' involvement in the comic made it canonical, Orci stated he was in no position to declare whether it as such, though he felt it could easily remain as such unless it was contradicted in a future film.

CBS & Paramount Announce First Star Trek Blu-ray sets - TOS S1 & All TOS movies coming April/May [uPDATED] February 16, 2009

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: DVD, Feature Films (TMP-NEM), TOS, TOS Remastered , trackback

 

 

Today CBS and Paramount made official what we have been reporting for months, for the first time ever, Star Trek is coming to Blu-ray in 2009. CBS announced a Blu-ray set for the first season of TOS and Paramount announced all the TOS era movies are coming to Blu-ray, all to be released this Spring. TrekMovie and DigitalBits.com have worked together to bring you all the info on the new sets, see below for full details.

 

Star Trek on Blu-ray and DVD in 2009

CBS and Paramount announced a total of four new sets for 2009:

 

  • Star Trek The Original Series - Season One [blu-ray on April 28]
  • Star Trek Original Motion Picture Collection (TMP - ST:VI) [blu-ray on May 12]
  • Star Trek Motion Picture Trilogy (ST:II, ST:III, ST:IV) [blu-ray on May 12]
  • Star Trek Motion Picture Trilogy (ST:II, ST:III, ST:IV) [DVD on May 12]

The TOS Season One set is essentially the Blu-ray version of HD-DVD TOS Season One (Remastered) set released in November 2007 (see TrekMovie review), but with the added benefit of allowing you to watch with the new CGI effects or the original 1960s effects.

 

Both new movie sets feature HD remasters of the theatrical versions of the six films with the TOS crew (Kirk, Spock, etc). Both movie sets also feature a number of new special features in HD, with the ‘Motion Picture Collection’ containing more special Blu-ray functions, and many of the the special features from the previous DVD releases. Each film (on both movie sets) has a new ’superfan’ commentary from the likes of Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, Ira Steven Behr, Manny Coto, Judith & Garflield Reeves Stevens, and many more.

 

Full details and box art on each set below.

 

STAR TREK® – THE ORIGINAL SERIES - SEASON ONE BLU-RAY

[April 28 - $118.00 US / $136.00 Canada]

 

Star Trek’s first foray on Blu-ray fitting starts with the first season of Star Trek The Original Series on a seven disc set, including all 29 first season episodes and loads of special features. The first season Blu-ray release features ’seamless branching’ technology that finally provides viewers the ability to see each remastered episode with either the newly enhanced digital effects or the original special effects. You can also choose to listen to the newly enhanced soundtrack (7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio) or the original one (in glorious mono!).

 

As part of the special features, six episodes feature “Starfleet Access” bonus content, which provides special pop-up trivia and picture-in-picture video commentaries. The set also includes an interactive tour of the starship Enterprise, Billy Blackburn’s rare on-set home movie footage, a featurette on the Remastered project, and much more. All of these features were on The hybrid HD-DVD/DVD release in 2007 (the ‘Starfleet Access’ feature for “Galileo Seven” was dropped to make room for other features). However, the set does not appear to include some of the features that were on the DVD side of the HD-DVD/DVD release, including the History channel special Beyond the Final Frontier and the ‘Trek Connections’ featurette. Like the HD-DVD release, the set also includes almost all the special features available on the standard DVD set released in 2004, with the notable exception of the ‘Red Shirt Diaries’ Easter Eggs (which weren’t on the HD-DVD set either). The Okuda text commentaries from the 2004 DVD set are also not included (which wasn’t on the HD DVD release either), but the Okudas participated in the “Starfleet Access” features.

 

It is also worth noting that this set is retailing for almost half of what the HD-DVD set was original sold for. Plus there is a collectible bonus of a free exclusive Sulu action figure from Diamond Select Toys (fans pay only shipping and handling charges). All in all this set looks to be exactly what fans have been asking for since the Star Trek Remastered project started in 2006.

 

STAR TREK®: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SEASON ONE is a seven disc set presented in the original 4:3 aspect ratio with English 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, English Original 2.0 Mono, Spanish 2.0 Mono and French 2.0 Mono sound. Subtitles are available in English SDH, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and French. The total running time is 24 Hrs., 20 Min.

STAR TREK: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE COLLECTION BLU-RAY

[May 12 - $104.99]

 

The ‘Original Motion Picture’ Blu-ray collection includes the first six “Star Trek” films, which have been digitally remastered in high definition. All the new Blu-ray transfers are based on the original theatrical releases. With the exception of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the previously released first DVD versions of each film were the ‘theatrical versions’ followed by a second ’special edition’. And in the case of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, there was only a single ‘Directors’ version released on DVD. Special care has been given to the Blu-ray version of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, which has been ‘fully restored’ in a process similar to Paramount’s recent Blu-ray edition of The Godfather. Director Nicholas Meyer tells us that the Wrath of Khan negative “was in terrible shape” which is why it needed extensive restoration. All six films have new 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.

 

Each film has a brand new commentary track from noted experts and Star Trek fans, in addition to commentaries from the previous release (except for TMP, which only has the new commentary). The set has a total of over 14 hours of special features, including 2 ½ hours of all-new material. Each film has a number of brand new special featurettes in HD, plus a ‘Library Computer’ function (Blu-ray’s Java function for additional pop-up trivia and information), and a ‘Star Trek IQ’ link to BD-Live. The new set contains almost all the extra features from the previous 2-disk special DVD editions of each film, except for the Okuda text commentaries (superseded by the new ‘Library Computer’ feature which also involves the Okudas). There are also three special features on the Star Trek: The Motion Picture Director’s Edition DVD, that aren’t in the new set (but maybe those will be in a possible future Blu-ray TMP Director’s Edition).

 

The collection also includes a bonus disc entitled “Star Trek: The Captains’ Summit” that features a 70-minute exclusive round table discussion hosted by Whoopi Goldberg in which William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes share candid moments and intimate details about life on the set.

 

The STAR TREK: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE COLLECTION Blu-ray discs are presented in 1080p high definition with English 7.1 Dolby TrueHD, French and Spanish audio and English, English SDH, French, Spanish & Portuguese subtitles.

More details to come

The above article contains some additional information given to TrekMovie and Digital Bits beyond the press release being sent out, but there is clearly a lot of more in-depth information about these exciting new releases. We will be doing follow-up articles on both the TOS and movie releases, so stay tuned.

 

More Trek Blu-ray and DVD releases in 2009

These sets are just the Spring releases that Paramount and CBS are officially announcing, however TrekMovie and Digital Bits sources have confirmed additional titles for 2009. In the Fall, Paramount will obviously be releasing the 2009 JJ Abrams Star Trek movie on Blu-ray and DVD. Paramount is also planning a Fall release of a four-movie Next Generation movie box set with Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis, complete with new bonus features. CBS is also readying seasons 2 and 3 of The Original Series for Blu-ray for the Fall as well.

 

In addition to the Next Gen movie set and the rest of the TOS series on Blu-ray, there are also some ‘maybes.’ There may be a ten-movie Blu-ray box set combining all the ten previous feature Star Trek films, or possibly an eleven-film set which would include the 2009 Star Trek movie as well. CBS may release two more TV episode collection DVD sets: a ‘best of TOS’ and a best of TNG,’ although those may be Europe only.

- expected in late 2009

All in all 2009 is looking to be huge for Star Trek in home video. By the end of the year, every single Trek film and the entire Original Series will be out on Blu-ray with all sorts of new HD special features. As always, TrekMovie will be keeping track of all of these new projects and reporting news as it becomes available.

Ναι αλλά θα είναι τα remastered? Αν δεν είναι τα remastered θα μείνω με τα DVD που έχω ήδη. Άλλωστε το 1080p που αναφέρουν δεν είναι πραγματικό (δηλαδή να έχει γυριστεί με HD κάμερες.)

Απ' ό,τι κατάλαβα για το remastered πρόκειται. Και το 1080p γιατί να μην υπάρχει; Το TOS και οι ταινίες γυρίστηκαν σε φιλμ, από το οποίο μπορείς να πάρεις 1080p σε ψηφιοποίηση.

Author Harlan Ellison has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures, CBS, and Simon & Schuster for what he claims are unpaid residuals owed to him for the use of elements from "The City on the Edge of Forever", the classic episode of Star Trek: The Original Series that he wrote. Ellison claims that the companies have refused to disclose sales figures on items derived from his work, which include the Crucible trilogy of novels, Christmas ornaments, and any DVD sets containing his episode. Ellison's representative stated that the author "wants every penny of his long ago agreed-upon share of the revenue from Paramount's relentless Trek exploitations." The case has been filed in the Central District of California and is awaiting a hearing date. [1]

 

 

Μα τι σπασο...... είναι αυτός ο Ellison. Από τότε που έγραψε αυτό το επεισόδιο (το οποίο ευτυχώς και δεν έκαναν όπως ακριβώς το ήθελε) έχει μηνύσει όλο το σύμπαν κατά συρροή.

No distributor or release date has been announced yet. [1]

Χαίρομαι για αυτήν του τη διάκριση! Ο τύπος έχει κάνει πολλά...

 

As the art supervisor he is responsible for such things as the look of alien languages, computer screens, graphic detailing and perhaps even the look of the exotic artifacts Picard has collected. His most recognizable achievement is the creation of okudagrams, the futuristic glass-covered control panels first seen in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. He was a graphic designer at the time.

While never having taken a class in calculus in his life, Okuda is responsible for designing the logarithmic warp scale used in Star Trek: The Next Generation. All his computer graphics and designs are done on a Macintosh.

As a big fan of M*A*S*H and Gilligan's Island, he often placed references to these TV shows in his designs.

Together with Rick Sternbach, he serves as a technical consultant to the script staff, maintaining technical and chronological continuity and inventing scientific terms and technobabble. He is a coauthor of the Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual, the Star Trek Chronology, and the Star Trek Encyclopedia. He is now also part of the development staff for the upcoming Star Trek Online, in addition to his work supervising the remastering of the Original Series.

Ο τύπος έχει κάνει πολλά...

Πράγματι, η προσφορά του Okuda στο Star Trek είναι σχεδόν ανυπολόγιστη, όλα αυτά τα χρόνια. Προφανώς δεν ήταν και καθόλου τυχαίο που έναν τέτοιον άνθρωπο, με τέτοια ιστορία στο Star Trek και τέτοια βαθιά γνώση του αντικειμένου, δεν τον ήθελαν τα καινούρια 'κεφάλια' της Paramount, για την ταινία που ετοίμασαν. Πώς αλλιώς θα μπορούσαν να κάνουν ανενόχλητοι το έκτρωμα αυτό, άλλωστε...!
