Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro Acquires STAR TREK License

Major Breaking toy news: Hasbro has landed the rights to produce toys based on the popular science fiction series Star Trek. No formal details were announce other than they would launch with the next Star Trek movie in May 2013.

A posting on StarTrek.com does make mention of KREO toys being part of the agreement, meaning ships from the Star Trek universe will be represented with the brick building toys.

This news comes just a few days before Toy Fair in New York City, which typically showcases major new releases from toy manufacturers and designers. It is unlikely that any new Star Trek toys will be on display since the first release isn’t due for over a year.

Previously, Star Trek toys were handled by Playmates. They launched a relatively well received line for the 2009 Star Trek movie, but the second wave of figures was delayed to to June 2010 and then ultimately cancelled.

Star Trek The Next Generation HD Remaster Comparison



Back in September, we found out Star Trek The Next Generation was being refreshed for a Blu Ray release. More than refreshed, it is being completely recut from the original negative since the masters were all done on video tape.

This video shows a side by side comparison of the show as it was originally presented (and already released on DVD) and the new version.

The sampler disc containing “Encounter At Farpoint,” “Sins Of The Father,” and “The Inner Light” will be released on January 31. The remainder of the series will be coming, but will take years.

George Takei unites Star Trek and Star Wars fans

George Takei as a Vampire from Twilight

Powet.tv is no stranger to the endless war between fans of Star Wars and Star Trek, as you can see from our podcast dedicated to the topic. Recently the Internet lit up as superstars William Shatner and Carrie Fisher engaged in an epic and kind of silly flame war. It looks like the war may be over, as George Takei, Star Trek’s Sulu, reminds us of a greater threat we should all oppose…

Robocop’s Peter Weller joins the cast of Star Trek

Robocop star Peter Weller joins the cast of J. J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel

It’s the clash of two completely unrelated sci fi franchises as Robocop himself, Peter Weller, join the cast of Star Trek for J.J. Abrams’ sequel to the 2009 reboot and theatrical hit! Peter Weller was in a few of the last episodes of Star Trek Enterprise, though that will surely have nothing to do with his role in this film.

Alice Eve has nice hooters in Star Trek

Also announced to join the cast a few days ago was Alice Eve. She’s pretty, and I haven’t seen her in a thing because she hasn’t played a cyborg in any movies… yet! To learn more about her try 10 seconds doing a google image search with safe search off.

You’re welcome.

William Shatner and Carrie Fisher’s Flame War

Princess Leia kissing Captain James T. Kirk

It’s Flame War Central as the eternal question of Star Trek vs. Star Wars heats up with celebrities representing both franchises lashing out with Internet videos attacking each other! It’s no coincidence that this happens so soon after the Powetcast episode 109: Star Wars vs. Star Trek dropped, as I got inspiration to do this show after watching William Shatner’s original video “Star Trek v Star Wars” a while back.

Data kissing C3P0

In the original video, William Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series, calls out Star Wars as being derivative and argues there isn’t really any comparison. This prompted Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the good Star Wars movies, to respond with her own video “Star Wars is SOOO Much Better than Star Trek“, where she argues various silly things to support her franchise being superior such as better merchandising and her hot ass. Finally Shatner has come back with his latest “Dearest Carrie…” where he retaliates and mocks Star Wars for being nothing but effects.

Keep reading for thoughts and the videos in question.

“Jim, I’m a doctor, not a chemist”

Terra Nova - "Jim I'm a doctor, not a chemist"

This week’s latest episode of Terra Nova parodied classic Star Trek Bones/Kirk banter with the line “Jim, I’m a doctor, not a chemist”.

How much did they force the plot to make this work? I suppose it was inevitable, with the main character’s name being Jim and his wife being a Doctor, but even that may have been intentional from the start.

Keep reading for a montage of “I’m a doctor” lines from the original Star Trek series.

Captain Kirk vs. Captain Picard in “This Means War”

This Means War starring William Shatner, James T. Kirk, and Patrick Stewart, Jean Luc Picard

You may have heard about this Spy vs. Spy movie “This Means War” starring Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, so what’s so special about these stars? Well Chris Pine plays Captain James T. Kirk in the Star Trek reboot and Tom Hardy played a clone of Jean Luc Picard, Praetor Shinzon, in Star Trek Nemesis. If Hollywood casting is correct, this movie might as well star William Shatner and Sir. Patrick Stewart!

Which movie would you rather see?
