TNG Theatrical Screenings Announced for Australia and Canada by Trek fm

While American Star Trek fans eagerly await big screen showings of “Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Datalore,” international fans watch from afar with envy. But that’s no longer the case for fans in Australia and Canada.

CBS has announced that they’re teaming up with Front Row Centre Events and BY Experience to bring the theatrical event to Canadians on July 23, and Australian fans will be treated to the same experience on July 26 thanks to NCM Fathom and Sharmill Films.

Like the US events, the screenings are designed to welcome the Blu-ray release of TNG Season One on Blu-ray, and are the perfect way to celebrate 25 years of The Next Generation.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Soundtrack Being Refitted by La-La Land Records by Trek fm

There’s something in the air—or the space-time continuum—that has caused record companies to shower us with new releases of classic Trek soundtracks over the past six months. Now La-La Land Records brings us the most beautifully packaged collection yet with a 3-CD set for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, set for release on June 5.

Bruce Botnick has restored and remixed all 37 original 16-track 2-inch sound rolls to bring fans the most definitive version of Jerry Goldsmith’s score ever released. Limited to 10,000 units, the first two discs feature the original score while Disc Three delivers many bonuses including the disco cover version of the TMP theme by Bob James. That’s a must for your next viewing party, by the way.


And speaking of parties, the release is accompanied by a “Soundtrack Celebration” on June 4th at 7:30 p.m. at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.

To purchase tickets for the Soundtrack Celebration visit TicketBud. Tickets are $17.50 in advance or $20 at the door. The soundtrack will be available for a special price of $30 (cash only) at the event, and Bruce Botnick and Craig Huxley will be on hand to sign copies.

You can get more information about the event from CreatureFeature.com and about the album at La-La Land Records.


Trek Nation Special Screening at San Diego Comic-Con and DVD Release Info by Trek fm

Roddenberry Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing its Saturn Award-nominated film, Trek Nation, to San Diego’s Birch North Park Theatre on July 12 at 7 p.m. This special event will kick off Comic-Con weekend, and the 90-minute film will be followed by an intimate question and answer session with Trek Nation Executive Producer Rod Roddenberry.

There is no cost for the event, but only a limited number of tickets are available to those who RSVP. To secure your spot visit the Trek Nation website at treknationmovie.com and click the “special screening sign-up” on the front page. Confirmation of each RSVP will guarantee entrance into the theater for the movie showing and Q & A session.

In addition, Trek Nation will be coming to DVD in autumn. While this is still quite a few months away, you can get your hands on it in advance exclusively at the Roddenberry Comic-Con booth and on-site at the Birch North Park Theatre at the July 12th event. Plus, Rod will be available to sign purchased DVDs after the Q&A session during a meet-and-greet at West Coast Tavern.
