April 23, 2014. News. Stan Lee, the creator of Spiderman and most of the rest of the 1960s Marvel Comics universe, has agreed to take a major role in the professionally run planned Star Trek Fan Film, Star Trek Equinox. I don't usually announce casting, but I thought this was of particular interest. Also starring in Star Trek: Equinox are TOS second pilot guest star Gary Lockwood and VOY guest star John Savage. For a newspaper article about this development, see http://www.examiner.com/article/stan-lee-to-join-the-cast-of-star-trek-equinox#sthash.vEUldwSg . For more about his production, see (E) under http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/210.html
William Shakespeare is 450 years old today. He was much quoted in TOS. If you thought Star Trek was long-lasting as it approached it's 50th year, realize that Shakespeare's plays still fill seats in theaters around the world. Will Trek still be playing 450 years after it was introduced, in the year 2416?
