    This is a fan-made video using clips from existing films to create a make-believe trailer for a Star Wars Vs. Star Trek movie. Which universe do you think would win? I thought about it for five seconds and decided it wasn't worth thinking about any more. Feel free to express... / Continue →

    Remember that series of Star Trek inspired wine? Well now they're back with a new one: Klingon Bloodwine. While real Klingon bloodwine is believed to be made from fermented blood and sugar, this one is made out of fermented grapes. Lame, I know, but at least your family won'... / Continue →

    FAKE! The shadows are all wrong. You can tell it's fake because the Enterprise is way f***ing bigger than that. This is a series of thrift store paintings purchased by Dave Pollot, who adds value to them by painting in his own sci-fi and other pop culture characters. You c... / Continue →

    This is a very short video of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation pretending the Enterprise is traveling through a shockwave, but without any camera effects. They look silly -- especially Riker. "Just pretend you're riding a mechanical bull made for children," I imagin... / Continue →

    David Waddell resigned from his post on the Indian Trail Town Council last Thursday by penning a letter written entirely in Klingon. How anybody was able to read it to know he was resigning is beyond me. Waddell says he opted to use Klingon, the language of a warrior race o... / Continue →

    These are Spock socks. Allegedly they're a real, officially licensed product, but I'm always skeptical when the only picture available is a rendering and not an actual photo. Is it because they don't exist or because they look even shittier in real life? I wore socks with sa... / Continue →
