Happy birthday, Star Trek. Yes, the sci-fi franchise is 50 years old - the first episode of the trailblazing Original Series having been broadcast on NBC on September 8 1966. Five decades on, Trek is still boldly going strong, with a new movie currently out in cinemas and a fresh TV series set to air early next year. Here, we take a look at a half century of Enterprising highlights from the enduring adventures of Starfleet's finest. But just what is the Greatest Star Trek Moment of all time?
Today sees what amounts to the beginning of the final stretch of marketing for Star Trek Beyond. We’re just shy of two months out from the film’s July 22nd release, and we’ve seen almost nothing since that first teaser trailer back in mid-December. And now we have the world premiere of the second theatrical trailer. And, yes, as expected, it is arguably a bit more fan-friendly than the last trailer.
It still has plenty of action and spectacle, but also has a certain amount of fan-friendly reverence that is closer to the terrific second trailer for the 2009 Star Trek reboot. This one probably went over well with that Star Trek Fan Event audience over at the Paramount lot tonight: It even has music somewhat reminiscent of the “epic” second trailer for the 2009 Star Trek.

It is with the saddest of hearts that I must announce that Fleet Admiral Wayne Killough died late Saturday night due to complications from a recent out-patient surgery.
Wayne served STARFLEET with honor and dedication in every position he held, including its highest offices. Like all of us, he had his flaws, but when it came to STARFLEET he always did what he thought was in the best interests of the Fleet, and his passing is a great loss to every member of this organization.
Regardless of what you thought of Wayne, STARFLEET has always prided itself on being a family and Wayne truly believed this. So I ask all of you to join the rest of Wayne's family in mourning the man who left a mark on not just this organization but all of us.
I have proposed to the ECAB that STARFLEET suspend all non-essential operations until Wednesday, 20 April 2016, and ask that all members join us in this period of mourning for our organization and family.
At this time, no arrangements for services have been made, but information will be posted as it becomes available.
