And, surprise, O.G. "Star Trek" stars Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and William Shatner popped up to offer their own expert opinions. Get More »

A self-professed "Star Wars" fan turning "Star Trek" into a shoot first and ask questions later action franchise? No way.
And that got us wondering: Which is actually better, the new "Star Trek" or the old "Star Trek"? Get More »

The Force is definitely with these two ... Oh wait, wrong space franchise. Right. So, "greetings."
Kidding, kids. Don't go gettin' those tighty-whiteys in a wad, 'cause there's some fun to be had here.
It was absolutely bound to happen that Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Spock Prime (Leonard Nimoy) would come to a battle of wits, with "Star Trek Into Darkness" offering up an on-screen reunion of the two big-eared human-Vulcan hybrids, and now it has. Get More »

Because...sure. Get More »

In this new video discussion of all-things-far far away with Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in Abrams' iteration of "Trek," he finally dared to explain why he took on "Star Wars" after initial resistance. Get More »
In our continuing coverage of the fact that video editors secretly rule the universe, here is an extremely well-done mashup of "Star Trek" — the William Shatner/Leonard Nimoy versions, of course, because ain't nobody got tiiiiime for Chris Pine — and a gentleman dressed as Abraham Lincoln.
Because what if Lincoln was in space helping Captain Kirk? Haven't we all asked ourselves that question from time to time? Don't answer that, because I'll answer for you: Yes. Yes, we have. Get More »
