Three More Star Trek Movies For JJ Abrams And No New Television Series

At the Creation Entertainment Mega Star Trek Conventionin Las Vegas we got some interesting news.

 

JJ Abrams has three more Trek moview on his contract and that there are no plans to bring Trek back to television anytime soon. Wish there was better news for fans looking for the series to return to where it started. Here is rhe full synopsisn

I’m going to try to go down the list, and try to remember what people said.  But overall, there’s no news on TV series.  But according to Eugene Roddenberry, J.J. Abrahms has 3 more movies with the Star Trek franchise.  After that, they’ll see what CBS/Paramount wants to do with Star Trek.  Since there wasn’t a CBS/Paramount panel there’s not much that can be said, since the Rights to the Star Trek Franchise regarding movies/shows belongs to CBS/Paramount.

 

Vaguely remember Walter Koenig’s panel, but he did joke about his age, that he must being getting old that he doesn’t take a peek at the girls boobs that escorted him.  He did bring up some memories of Leonard.  But probably things already heard of already.

 

The Photo Tribute to Leonard Nimoy was narrated by a long-time associates Richard Arnold.  His son Adam, showed up afterward and talked about his journey with his dad and they had a rough patch, but the past few years they found their peace with each other.  Adam is working on a documentary “For the love of Spock”.  Adam started a kickstarter for “For the Love of Spock” https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adamnimoy/for-the-love-of-spock-a-documentary-film

 

He’s in the midst of interviewing people and directing it himself.

 

Alice Krige had a short panel, but speaks about her experience as the borg queen on the big screen as well as her scenes on the Voyager and how empowering each scene was.

 

Eugene Roddenberry shared his thoughts about Leonard, as well as his thoughts on where Star Trek is going.  But according to him, no matter what, Star Trek will never die regardless of what happens after J.J. Abrahms contract is up, cause it’s the fans that matter the most and the fans will not let Star Trek die.

 

Robert Beltran came in early to do a make-up session with Michael Westmore to transform him back into Chakotay.  It was more like a quick tattoo session painted on his forehead in 30 minutes.  Even though it was nice to see Chakotay’s tattoo it was Robert’s daughter that took the stage and made everyone go awww.  I’m sure there’s pictures out there, just that, I was standing on the side where Robert was blocking my view of his daughter, so I didn’t get a good picture of that.

 

Dame Joan Collins went on stage to talk about her role as Edith Keeler on that one episode of Star Trek.  She did briefly touched on Dynasty as well.  Since it’s been a long time ago, she doesn’t really recall much nor recalling ever meeting Harlan Ellison

 

William Shatner, had his panel and shared his moments with Leonard and plan to do a documentary about him.  His in the midst interviewing people like he usually do with his other documentaries.  A touchy subject came a long by a fan about the feud between him and George Takei as well as if they’ll be willing to bury the hatchet for the 550th anniversary.  That’s when it kind of gotten serious and a tad bit personal and not really sure how to take that.  Cause according to Shatner, it’s all in George’s head.  Shatner also explain why he never went to the wedding.  He did admit getting the invite, but he also explain why he didn’t go.  According to him, he didn’t go cause he doesn’t really know George.  They’ll go to work, they’ll say hi, they’ll do their lines and that’s it, then do it all over again.  It seems like Shatner was saying he never spent time with George and the only reason why George invited him, cause he’s Captain Kirk.  Which kind of makes sense in a way, cause if you really don’t know the person as a friend, why go.  If you’re co-worker that you don’t talk to outside of work invites you to their wedding, why go.  In a way, I can see his point, then again, there’s a lot of missing pieces to the puzzle.

 

They Voyager reunion was hillarious, that I kind of feel bad for the fans that were waiting to ask questions.  Cause quite honestly, after one question being asked, they’ll answer it, but they’ll go off into a totally different subject for 5-10 minutes before they answer another question.  Adam Malin the host of the panel decided to extend the Voyager reunion cause the fans wanted it.  Mainly it’s about reminiscing there time on Voyager and of course some one had to bring up Garret Wang grabbing Jeri Ryan’s boob story again, as if it never gets old.  I’m sure you heard that story plenty of times.  The other part that stuck out was  Ethan Phillips jokingly saying he directed all the shows.

 

Grace Lee Whitney tribute was with Adam Malin and i forgot the other dudes name but he was a close colleague and they talked through every photo that showed up from where she was born, to her drinking problem in her teenage years, to some of her acting careers before Star Trek.  Of course Grace Lee Whitney only appeared on a few shows before she was let go.  It wasn’t clear why, but it had little to do with her drinking and an inappropriate encounter with an executive.  That a few days later she shot her last scene which lasted a few seconds.  But with Leonard Nimoy’s guidance, she came around being sober and came back to the Star Trek scenes on the big screen as well as appearances on other series.

 

John de Lancie didn’t really go up to talk about himself, but to talk about Star Trek Disrupter Beam and how you can pick and choose your own combination of fleet/bridge crew to better control your ship.  It’s the next roleplaying game for Star Trek fans.

 

George Takei, came out saying that he’s starting his golden anniversary now, since it is the start of him being hired with Star Trek and it’s been 50 years for him.  Not only that, he’s also celebrating the fact that 2015 is the year of a new beginning for gay lesbian bisexual transgender people.  As well as sharing his Allegiance broadway show coming up this year.  He also emphasize that he sent an invitation to Shatner and made sure New York Times knew too.  But again, he touched based on the feud between him and Shatner, that he doesn’t know why Shatner went on youtube ranting that he never got an invite where it could of been a personal issue and not broadcast to the social media.  He also explained why he denied to do a documentary with Shatner, due to the fact that Shatner has the control to do what he wants with the documentary.  Like editing what Shatner wants to edit or delete and so forth.  George didn’t want to be in a situation where Shatner has that control.  But he’ll do it if it was done in a neutral area, where Shatner has no control what gets edited or deleted.  George also took a tad bit offense about the fact that Shatner said “he doesn’t know him”  as a reason for not showing.  Then again, George did say that’s typical Shatner, cause he never shows up to anyone else’s party.

 

So I’m sure the anticipation of the 50th anniversary is building up, just to see if George and Shatner can be on the same stage next year.

 

Finishing it off with Sir Patrick Stewart, who started off showing a few clips of his upcoming TV series on Starz, Blunt Talk.  Where he plays a TV news reporter that get his life turned upside down.  He also shared his thoughts on Domestic Violence and the wrongs of it all.  He has a knack of telling his thoughts about it cause people were cheering left and right about it. Some one else brought up if they’ll ever see him and Ian McKellen again.  He didn’t say anything about X-men but he did say that him and Ian will be in a broadway show in London.  Then ending his panel by answering a young boys question on how it feels to work with the X-men cast as well as the Star Trek cast and how similar they can be.

 

I’m sure I’m missing a lot of key points, but this gives you an idea on what I sat in, which doesn’t really say much on what’s coming up next, except the fact that JJ Abrahms has 3 more Star Trek movies to go.  After that, it’s up to CBS/Paramount, which a TV show would probably be logical to keep the Star Trek Franchise alive.  But we won’t know till JJ Abrahms contract is done.hI’m going to try to go down the list, and try to remember what people said.  But overall, there’s no news on TV series.  But according to Eugene Roddenberry, J.J.
