It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of classic Star Trek star, Leonard Nimoy at the age of 83.

Star Trek: The Video Game Review
Oh Star Trek: The Video Game, I had such high hopes for you. You appeared to be doing so well when we spent some time together a few months back. What happened to you?

With Star Trek 2 set to begin shooting, there had been many calls for William Shatner to be given a guest-star. However, the man himself has confirmed...

FOLLOWING his appearance in JJ Abrams‘ reboot of the Star Trek franchise, a certain Mr Leonard Nimoy is set for a part in the third installment of the Transformers movies. Sci-fi fans, Trekkies and Transformers fanboys can rejoice – but Nimoy won’t actually be appearing in Transformer: The Dark Of The Moon, he’ll be playing the voice of Sentinel Prime. The man better known as Spock had stated he has no inclination to get back...
