Behind the scenes footage of the making of Into Darkness, as well as clips from the movie not seen in TV spots or trailers.
The most notable new footage is a beautiful extended shot of the Enterprise silhouetted against a distant nebula, which was featured in the film,
but substantially cut down in the final edit.
This always makes me laugh, but no one can hear me from the basement. 🙂
This commercial was aired before the premire of Enterprise to advertise for the show. Pretty funny ad.
Well, that didn’t take very long. Patrick Stewart, fresh off his triumphant run on Broadway with Waiting for Godot and No Man’s Land, has inked a deal for his next project. Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Captain Picard will star in and co-produce Blunt Talk, a half-hour scripted comedy for STARZ. The network announced that they’d given the show – from Seth MacFarlane and Jonathan Ames –a two-season, 20-episode order. MacFarlane, as fans Star Trek fans know, guest starred as Rivers in the Enterprise episodes “The Forgotten” and “Affliction.”
Blunt Talk, set to debut in 2015, will center on Walter Blunt (Stewart), a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news. Via his nightly L.A.-based interview show, Blunt aims to share his wisdom and guidance as to how Americans should live, think and behave. Meanwhile, he has only his alcoholic manservant, who came over with him from the U.K., to help him contend with a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages. Each episode, according to a STARZ press release, will follow the fallout from Blunt’s well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air.
“My career took an abrupt and radical left turn when Seth MacFarlane created CIA Deputy Director Avery Bullock on American Dad,” Stewart said in a statement. “This new character, Walter Blunt, is not at all like Avery, thank God, because this is live action and I am a Knight of the Realm. Blunt is, however, much smarter than Avery and has his own TV show, which has to be better than being Deputy Director of the CIA.”

The U.S.S. Enterprise is boldly going to a new space at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. The original studio model of the starship Enterprise NCC-1701 used for Star Trek has long been ensconsed in the museum store.
However, come the summer of 2016 — just in time for Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary — the Enterprise will have a fresh home within the museum at the Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall.
The current main hall, Milestones of Flight, has on display such icons of aviation and spaceflight history as the Wright Brothers’ plane, the 1903 Wright Flyer; Charles Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis; and John Glenn’s Mercury capsule, Friendship 7. Milestones of Flight will be the beneficiary of a full renovation and expansion, courtesy of a $30 million donation from the Boeing Company, and will be renamed the Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall. Further, according to the National Air and Space Museum, the overhaul will take into account its revised definition of the word “milestone.” Where once “milestone” meant “the first” in space travel or flight, it will now embrace “an artifact having significant or widespread cultural, historic, scientific or technological impact.”
“Milestones of Flight has done just what the planners had intended. It signaled to every visitor who walked through front door: you are about to have one of the most exciting museum experiences of your life,” said Peter L. Jakab, the museum’s chief curator, in a statement to the New York Times. The renovated space “will deepen the experience with richer description and interpretation of the iconic artifacts on display,” he added, as well as “versatile digital and mobile opportunities to interact with and share content, and a more visitor-friendly design of the space to better showcase the artifacts and make visitor services and information more accessible.”
