A dedicated "Star Trek" fan with terminal cancer was granted his last wish with a private screening of "Star Trek Into Darkness" before dying just days later on Jan. 4. Daniel Craft, one of the directors of the New York Asian Film Festival, was able to view a DVD screener of J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Trek" movie thanks to Abrams. Craft died of liver cancer, according to fellow NYAFF founder Grady Hendrix. In a post on the "Star Trek" section of Reddit.com, Hendrix thanked the online community for helping getting the story picked up by the media and eventually onto the radar of Abrams, who dispatched a producer to Craft's New York home with a rough cut of the film.

A just-out book about the making of "Star Trek V"--by director/co-star William Shatner, and his daughter, Lisabeth Shatner--purports to tell the behind-the-scenes account of "the most spectacular 'Star Trek' movie yet!" Alas, the book--"Captain's Log: William Shatner's Personal Account of the Making of 'Star Trek V' "--was published by Pocket before the "spectacular" film's anticipated box office grosses didn't roll in.

To reignite its creaky "Star Trek" movie series this weekend, Paramount Pictures must beam up young moviegoers who may have never heard of Captain Kirk, Spock or the starship Enterprise, and international audiences who have been indifferent. Paramount, despite having one of the most recognizable titles in entertainment, must overcome a perception that its new movie in the decades-old franchise will appeal only to aging Trekkies and not younger Twitter fanatics.

Loved by millions as the android Data on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," Brent Spiner is proving to be anything but robotic as an actor. Spiner, 49, has shined as an eccentric scientist in "Independence Day," a tormented dance instructor in "Out to Sea" and co-stars with Halle Berry in HBO's bio-pic "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge." The latest big-screen "Star Trek" installment ("Insurrection") opens Friday.

Every new television series bets against cancellation. But there is something unusually optimistic about launching a show whose premise is predicated upon a mystery that may not be explained until a specific, stated later date. In "FlashForward," which premieres tonight on ABC, every person in the whole wide world passes out for two minutes and 17 seconds, during which time they are transported into the future -- to April 29, 2010, at 10 p.m. PST, to be exact -- right around the time the first season of this show will be wrapping up, if all goes well.

Warp speed has never felt so fast, the deep rumble of the engines as they power up a visceral experience as much as anything else. The black witchy menace of the Romulan spacecraft, like a dark ghost ship floating across the sky, never so lethal. The wave of nostalgia never so sweet as when the words "USS Enterprise" first come into view against the white sweep of the starship. With a James T.

The entertainment of the eerie is everywhere and the paranormal has never been more active — the undead are ubiquitous, of course, but there's also cursed creatures, sci-fi monstrosities, ghosts and, we are told, goblins are making a comeback. With all the contemporary emphasis on man versus monster, Bruce Greenwood might be an actor with special insight — he's been on both sides of the fight. On the creepy new ABC series "The River," Greenwood portrays Emmet Cole, an explorer and TV personality who went missing in the Amazon rain forest during his (apparently successful)

"Star Trek" fans will have to wait a bit longer to see where the crew of the starship Enterprise is boldly going next. The release of J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek," with a new cast taking on the roles of Capt. James T. Kirk, Spock and other original characters, has been moved from Christmas Day to May 8, 2009, distributor Paramount said Thursday. Studio spokesman Michael Vollman said "Star Trek" would be finished by fall in time for its original release date, but studio executives decided to hold it until next summer, when the film could pull in more money.

"Harlem Nights" is the first movie to co-star Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor. Watching the sorry, unfunny mess that has resulted is like witnessing a highly touted heavyweight title bout that inexplicably turns into a pat-a-cake session between cruiserweights. Even those of us who have just about given up on Murphy hoped the pairing with Pryor would snap him to attention.
