You are cordially invited to an Evening with Terry Farrell!

We are celebrating the career of one of Star Trek’s most beloved actresses. With roles in many American TV Series, such as Quantum Leap, Becker, Family Ties, it is Terry’s role as Jadzia Dax in 148 episodes of Deep Space Nine that has etched her name into the Star Trek Universe, and into our hearts.

As it is Terry’s first visit to Ireland we plan on giving her an event to remember, and we hope you can join us!

The evening will be obviously Star Trek themed, with a Quark-style bar serving cocktails that are out of this world. There will be a talk with Terry, followed by a Q&A, where you the audience will get the opportunity to put your questions directly to Terry. There will also be a ‘Tribute to Terry Farrell’, a Star Trek pub quiz, auction, raffle, and spot prizes.  Your ticket price also includes intergalactic finger food.

Gene Roddenberry Anniversary

On October 24th 1991 the creator of Star Trek, the Great Bird of the Galaxy Gene Roddenberry left us.  It’s hard to imagine a world without Star Trek.  Although it’s obviously a fictional show, the impact it has had on so many lives is very real.

I remember where I was when I heard the news.  Astronomy Ireland had organised a weekend trip to Birr, Co. Offaly to visit the, at one time, the biggest telescope in the world, as well as have a space shuttle simulation and do some stargazing.

gene_poster3

I believe it was the Friday night when we were stargazing that I heard Gene had passed the day before.  I’ll be honest, it didn’t affect me much at the time.  I was 14 and was more interested in trying to distinguish the differences between two, almost identical, blonde twin sisters, who both liked astronomy. It wasn’t until several years after that night that I began to appreciate how important Gene Roddenberry has been to my life.

I don’t think I would have been at that astronomy weekend if it wasn’t for Star Trek. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t gone on to become one of the many famous Star Trek fans who became an astronaut (Chris Hadfield) or a world renowned scientist (Stephen Hawking). I haven’t invented anything that could be easily described with some of Star Trek’s get-out-of-jail-free technobabble! I’m just a nameless redshirt who has survived with a Star Trek Encyclopedia in my breast pocket. But what do I share with Hadfield, Hawking, Asimov, Bill Gates or Bill Nye?: I LOVE Star Trek. It is part of me, entwined into my being like a tapestry (and I don’t want Q to allow me to change it either!). I believe Star Trek has inspired my healthy amateur love of astronomy but the main reason I am so grateful to Star Trek and it’s creator Gene Roddenberry, is the moral GPS system that it uploaded to my brain! The teenage years are so important in molding a person so I was very lucky to be guided by my parents, but with very special backup from Spock and Picard. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, if the A-Team are just too busy, don’t worry. Just ask yourself ‘what would Picard do?’.

Thank you Gene for bringing those fresh Star Trek snowflakes together and molding them in your hands 50 years ago.  That snowball has became a colossal boulder, as it continues to grow and touch so many as it roles into the future.

Anton Yelchin, 1989 to 2016

With the tragic news on Sunday June 19th that Star Trek (2009) actor Anton Yelchin died at his home,  we take a look at the young actor’s career and place in Star Trek.

Being a fan of the reboot franchise or hating it, it would be hard to find a fan who didn’t like or disagree with Yelchin’s casting as the young  Pavel Chekov.  As we all know the role was originally played by the cute faced Walter Koenig in the original Star Trek series’ second season. Chekov was a character conceived to tap into the Davey Jones and Beatles fan base, to give girls and young men an idol or pop star looking character. This mostly worked and Chekov became a permanent member of the Star Trek crew.

STAR TREK

Despite mixed reviews of JJ Abrams 2009 Reboot of Star Trek, Yelchin was the perfect choice to play Chekov. Yelchin was born in Leningrad in 1989 to parents, Irina Korina and Viktor Yelchin and migrated to the US months later under a refugee status.

Failing to take to Figure Skating (his parents’ careers ), Anton turned to acting at a very young age, starting out in  independent films in 2000. In 2002 he landed a role in a Spielberg produced miniseries Taken (2002). This role launched him quickly into television roles including Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000) and as a series regular on Huff (2004) alongside Hank Azaria .

In 2007 Yelchin landed a key role in the film Alpha Dog which launched his film career to a new level. It didn’t take long for him to find a role in 2009’s Star Trek as Chekov.

Yelchin had a unique look and growing up with Russian parents, the accent and language came to him very naturally. His young looks and boyish innocent face made him a perfect fit to play Chekov.  He played the character with a sense of awe and nervous energy. A depiction that was very fitting to a young cadet thrown onto the bridge for his genius and skill.

Yelchin excelled in his acting career, he could carry himself as a small innocent looking boy or be an unexpected hero springing into action. A great role that shows his ability was as the lead character in Odd Thomas in 2013. In this role, he shone as the vulnerable seer of death while balancing it with a hero out to fight the supernatural.

Yelchin took to music from a young age and showcased his passion in 2014’s Rudderless, alongside Billy Crudup in a story about friendship and a love of music. Yelchin was once part of a Punk band named “The Hammerheads”.

On June 19th 2016, Anton Yelchin Died aged 27 when a fault in his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled into him and pinned him against a pillar in his own driveway. The accident was due to a fault in the car’s design, a model that was under recall. Yelchin was found by friends when he failed to show up to a film set on time. His death at only 27 continues the showbusiness curse and adds him to the infamous 27 Club, with members including James Dean, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain.

Yelchin can be seen this summer in Star Trek Beyond, in what is now his last appearance as Pavel Chekov. Two more completed films are in post production starring Yelchin- “Porto” and “Thoroughbred“- and are due to be released later this year and in 2017.

Tributes to Anton Yelchin have been posted on many social media outlets. Many by Star Trek fans including him in the line up of big Star Trek names who have died over the years.

Yelchin was described by many as a kind and fun loving person. He was friendly and loved by many. Karl Urban (Bones) posted on Twitter and Instagram his love for Yelchin saying:

Anton was such a beautiful , gentle soul . He sought out new life experience with an unabated passion . He was edgy , incredibly talented and beautifully knowledgeable. His smile was radiant and mischievous . Truly an old soul in a young man’s body . He was a loving son. My heart , thoughts and prayers are with Anton’s family. I’m devastated. Godspeed you gorgeous man .

Sound Trek Episode 4: Star Trek Generations, First Contact and Nemesis

In the final episode of this season Eoin and Shane take a look at the themes form Star Trek First Contact and compare it to Star Trek Generations and Nemesis. The themes range in style and ability from operatic character motifs to simple reactionary melodies and a theme that’s mostly forgettable. The Good The Bad and The Ugly.

Eoin and Shane will return with more episodes later in the year as they expand their Sound Trek into further SciFi themes and explore many more galaxies.
