....for TOS' 50th anniversary.

MAC Cosmetics has announced a Star Trek-themed line celebrating the film and TV franchise’s 50th anniversary. And resistance, as they say, is futile.

Set to hit stores Sept. 1 and go online Aug. 25, the collection will make its debut at San Diego Comic-Con as part of an exclusive one-day presale July 21 at the MAC Cosmetics store in the Gaslamp district.

“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomenon whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries,” says MAC creative director James Gager of the beauty brand’s decision to launch the line. “For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.

As part of next year’s celebrations honoring the 50th anniversary of the original series of Star Trek, the United States Postal Service will be offering up four Trek themed postage stamps.

The USPS is known for honoring important moments and people in history on their stamps. It’s quite an honor to have one’s image emblazoned upon the official USPS stickies. In 2016, the USPS honors Star Trek in it’s 50th year with a set of four pretty cool looking stamps for you to decorate the corners of your envelopes.

Always wanted to tell your own Star Trek story about Kirk, Spock, Janeway, Picard, Uhura, Sisko, Major Kira, Archer, Tom Paris, Hoshi and/or the Borg, U.S.S. Enterprise, etc.? Well, your timing is coming, as Simon & Schuster, as part of its celebration of Star Trek's upcoming 50th anniversary, will bring back its popular Star Trek: Strange New Worlds fan fiction writing contest. The orignal Star Trek: Strange New Worlds was a yearly collection of Trek short stories published between 1998 and 2007, with the amateur writers' works chosen via an open submissions process. The new contest for 2106 will result in 10 grand prize winners who will have their stories published in the print and eBook formats as part of an all-new and official anthology from Simon & Schuster. Additionally, the two first prize winners will receive a free self-publishing package from Archway Publishing.

A deadline of January 15, 2016 has been set for submissions by U.S. residents only, and the winners will be announced on March 31, 2016, with the winning stories selected by a panel (to be named in the near future). And, to make the 2016 Star Trek: Strange New Worlds a fully fan-created package, fans will soon be asked to submit their artwork for cover consideration. Visit for additional details. has a short video

We’ve been getting pings and @’s all morning about who seem to be scraping/taking stories off of AO3 and hosting them as PDFs and mobi downloads on their site; the site seems to be pulling from UrBookLibrary as well. They’re not reading your “do not copy/duplicate” notes on your AO3 fic; their bots are pulling things directly from AO3, without AO3′s authorization or assent. It looks like they are pulling from Wattpad too, again without authorization or assent.

While the Ebooks-Tree DMCA page seems to imply that you need a lawyer or other “authorized person” to submit a takedown notice, you don’t; you can do it yourself.

About The Event
Prepare for an especially tasty Viewing Party. Spock will pop his mind meld cherry with a Human being. What snaps Kirk out of crazy-arsed hypnosis as if it were only a bellyache? Learn how to wear your shirt the Kirk way. Be prepared for shamelessly obvious eye sex, no, eye porn, on the bridge. And is there a deeper meaning to the fact that Kirk's diet is mentioned in the same episode as his talent for cheating his way out of trouble? 
Also: Gratuitous shots of naked, glistening Kirk!flesh. (Take that, male gaze!)
Join us for an entertaining TOS Viewing Party at T'Lara's Cinema of Squee. We are going to host a science fiction double feature, with the two episodes Dagger Of The Mind & The Corbomite Maneuver.
Stock up on Romulan Ale and popcorn, and polish your slash goggles!
You can watch the stream either on Livestream or on KirkSpockSlash (tab "cinema").
We start at 1 pm PST / 4 pm EST / 9 pm GMT.

(Reuters) - A North Carolina town councilman planning to run for U.S. Congress has quit his post by submitting a resignation letter in Klingon, the language of a fictional extraterrestrial warrior species on the "Star Trek" TV and film series.

David Waddell said he used Klingon to resign from the Indian Trail Town Council on Thursday because the fierce-looking science fiction characters valued integrity, honor and duty.

The letter indicated that Waddell, whose four-year term is up in December 2015, plans to resign at the end of this month.

"Teach (the) city (the) constitution," said the English translation. "I will return next time to (witness) victory."

The DAEDALUS needs you!

Welcome to the USS Daedalus. This is an all original character cast crewing the Rhode-island-class science vessel Daedalus, on her mission to explore the Delta Quadrant. We are looking for good, enthusiastic writers to help take up the mantle at any one of our open spots. We have dozens of open positions available for the picking, so make sure to check us out! This roleplay is for anyone who is interested in Trek continuity, who enjoys writing and who is an active participant in collaborative writing. This roleplay uses the very intuitive Nova software to make writing between multiple people simple and fun. If you love Star Trek, roleplaying and writing, the Daedalus is for you.

Under the command of accomplished scientist and scholar, the eccentric Commander Maenad Panne and determined first officer Zia Shassun lead the Daedalus and its diverse crew into the unknown. Their mission is to seek out new life and new civilisations in the barely-charted Delta Quadrant while avoiding the countless predators that will undoubtedly try to kill them. In a region of space where Starfleet is small and regulations are more ideas to aspire toward than commandments, the Daedalus frequently improvises what's best as it fumbles its way through the stars.

Current mission! » Rules! » Personnel (Writers)! » Roleplay information! » Enlist today!

"It is the invariable lesson to humanity that distance in time, and in space as well, lends focus. It is not recorded, incidentally, that the lesson has ever been permanently learned."
