Onyx: the Star Trek communicator made real

Onyx: the Star Trek communicator made real

After a year in development, the team at OnBeep have created a device by the name of Onyx. This device closely replicates the abilities of a walkie-talkie, a push-to-talk phone, and of course - a Star Trek communicator.

DREDD 2: Karl Urban meets with filmmakers

Karl Urban has once again spoken up about DREDD 2, the sequel to the first film that does not officially have a plan for a second. We heard from Urban in April of this year speaking about the petition to get a DREDD sequel made, and since then we’ve heard from Olivia Thirlby as well with a similar message. Now we’re hearing from Urban again, this time at Destination Star Trek 3 in London England. This is the same convention where we saw Cortana speak Klingon for the first time, mind you.

Pharrell Williams interviews Spock

Pharrell Williams interviews Spock

As part of a creator series of interviews called "ARTST TLK", the multi-platform artist known as Pharrell Williams has brought aboard none other than Leonard Nimoy for a chat. While this actor, synonymous with his iconic half-human/half-alien Star Trek character Spock, has had many chats on the subject, this one is unique. This one is like watching the world's biggest geek speak with an unnatural amount of restraint while asking questions so well thought out, you'd swear he'd written them over the course of a lifetime.

Star Trek 3 release date tipped by Spock himself

It's not every day you see a character made so inextricably tied to the first actor to play him that he cannot be seen as his human self, but so it is with Leonard Nimoy and his Spock - and he owns it. So much that his "LLAP" following the Twitter update that tips the release date for the next Star Trek movie can basically be taken for gospel truth. That and the double-confirmation (or simple hearty suggestion_ from Star Trek Into Darkness producer Bryan Burk from earlier this year suggesting that the date tipped by Nimoy would, indeed, be an ideal time for the third film (in this new generation) to premiere.
