CBS is producing a new Star Trek TV series, but there's a catch
"The new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966."

However, we're only going to get the first episode on actual TV. The rest will go to CBS All Access, CBS's $5.99 a month streaming service.

The Biography of Captain Kirk (by David A. Goodman)
Every fan of Captain Kirk, stop what you are doing right now and start reading his autobiography. It is such a wonderful read, giving insight into Kirk's thoughts and feelings and also struggles. It shows us events we know about from his perspective, and also some events we didn't yet know. Every decision, every death he had to watch, they all shaped him to become the great man he would be. His first command and his first meeting of all the people who later would serve on the "Enterprise". I loved especially the first meeting between Spock and McCoy.

And all those familiar names - Tom Leighton, Ben Finney and his daughter Jamie, Sean Finnegan, Ruth, Gary Mitchell, Captain Garrowick, Carol Marcus, both Deckers.... They all are no longer just characteres in a TV show, they are now real people to me. The stories get connected with each other, and sometimes we meet them again much later. We follow Kirk from his beginnings as he is serving on the "Republic", "Farragut" and "Hotspur", making his way up before becoming the captain of the "Enterprise".

A foreword by McCoy and an afterword by Spock make this book round and wonderful and lovely. You certainly won't regret it.

I loved especially to learn about his early years in the academy, I would like to know more about that. And the stories that were just a throw away line on TV - like in the episode "Where no man has gone before" which I rewatched yesterday. Now I know how exactly it came that Gary Mitchell took a dart for him. Later in the book it is more a re-telling of events we already have witnessed, but still a twist here, a turn there, a missing scene added, some thoughts and feelings. I loved it from start till end.

I picked up this book at noon in Forbidden Planet in London, and when I arrived home at midnight I was through. . It kept me company in the plane and in the bus and arriving home two hours later than planned wasn't a problem at all. As I was in outer space in my mind.

The USS Daedalus is a Rhode Island class vessel serving Bravo Fleet's Task Force 38. She is currently en route to Union Gateway under her captain, Commander Maenad Panne. The Daedalus is an all-original character cast made up of writers just like you, on her mission to explore the Delta Quadrant. We are looking for good, enthusiastic folks to help take up the mantle at any one of our open spots. We have dozens of open positions available for the picking, and we invite anyone with an enthusiasm for writing, roleplaying and Star Trek to come play with us.

As a Nova refit vessel it has all the capabilities of a survey vessel with added speed, range, agility and tactical systems, giving it a longer duration and endurance against tougher odds.

The Daedalus is part of Starfleet's Exo-Sciences Division (SESD).

Art: Customized 3D chess game miniature
I'm new to this community, and I am also fairly new to the Star Trek fandom. In fact, I am watching TOS for the very first time in my life and having the greatest of fun. I grew up in former Eastern Germany, and therefore during my childhood I simply didn't have access to the original Enterprise series as it was not shown in our TV. And later I was too much occupied with Stargate and Doctor Who/Torchwood.

But here I am now, and as an introduction I'd like to show the miniature 3D chess game I made today for my action figures. Apologies for using the "wrong" Spock - more figures are on the way. Whenever I do a new fandom, I do it properly!

Please follow the link to my personal LJ for detailed step-by-step pictures. The game was made totally from scratch.
