All these can be found at booth #3249.  Here is a quick preview of the items expected to be on display.

This is rather strange… This is the moment where Star Trek‘s Data suddenly becomes Spock and the world gets turned upside down.

Brent Spiner, the actor who plays Data in Star Trek, dressed up as Spock for some wacky children’s birthday party and it is completely awesome.  Not just somewhat awesome – it’s completely awesome.

This happened as part of Fresh Hell, a semi-autobiographical web series Spiner is doing… Playing Spock was meant to get him close to a casting director.  Well, it certainly got him close to something.

Check it out; it’s quite the mind fuck.

Above: The Skywalker Coat of Arms. Available as a shirt, here. But, umm, isn’t there like, somebody missing? Or was the Death Star really Darth Vader’s true love and I’ve been missing the clues?(Fashionably Geek)

 

Perfect, perfect, perfect! I am in love with how well this trailer mash-up works. As a child raised through the 90s, how could I not be a huge fan of both The Lion King and Batman (due to the celebrated animated series). Mashing the Disney classic with the audio from The Dark Knight Rises is genius work. (The Mary Sue)

The Star Trek veteran (because he deserves to be called a veteran at this point, IMO) Brent Spiner did a live webchat earlier this week, promoting his new webseries: Fresh Hell. During the webchat, however, he decided to do some self-pluggage and start a movement to get himself back in the Star Trek game.

I am thinking more about the next Star Trek movie and more about who can I be in it. I did this character Arik Soong [on Star Trek Enterprise], not to be confused with Dr. Soong on the [TNG], this was his predecessor. And I would like to start a campaign, maybe right here tonight, its called BBS—Bring Back Soong. And I want you to flood JJ Abrams offices with that: BBS, Bring Back Soong.

You’ve probably inferred from the above quote that he’s not interested in reprising the role for which he’s known, Lt. Commander Data.

I don’t think that could happen. Look at me. I am a shockingly older gentleman. I don’t see that I could wear that makeup anymore. I think that would look really stupid. I love the character and I wish I started it much younger, but I was already in my mid sixties when I started [joke]. I just don’t think I could get away with it. Yeah they could CGI it, but why not just CGI the whole character and forget about me.

Given that Shatner’s jumped ship, it’d be nice to get Spiner back on the boat. (It’s more of a yacht.)

Thoughts? Will you be supporting the Bring Back Soong campaign?

Image of the Day: Awesome Star Wars-themed mobile food truck

Food trucks are all the rage right now. There are taco trucks, cupcake trucks, even trucks with food based on hit television series (HBO’s Game of Thrones). But can those food trucks make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs and deliver on tasty grilled cheese? (blastr)
