Week In Geek: New Star Trek Trailer Beams Down, She-Ra: The Video Game, and More

By: Jase Peeples


These are the nerdy bits of news that had us geeking out this week.


Star Trek: Into Darkness Teaser Debuts
A first look at JJ Abrams upcoming Star Trek sequel hit the web this week and sent Trekkers around the universe into a frenzy, eagerly scanning every second of the teaser for clues about the film’s plot. The full trailer is expected to beam down on December 17, 2012, but there’s one thing the below sneak peek makes perfectly clear – Chris Pine (Captain Kirk) is still hot!


She-Ra Update Available for He-Man Video Game
If you haven’t played He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe yet, Mattel and Chillingo have just given you one more fabulous reason to take this nostalgic trip to Eternia. She-Ra is now available as a playable character with the game’s latest update and she’s brought her “beloved steed” Swift Wind to the party as well. Check the trailer below to see the Princess of Power in action. (And for more fabulous fun, check out The 10 Gayest Things About She-Ra.)


Wonder Woman and Superboy Come to DVD
Both the pre-Lynda Carter 1974 Wonder Woman pilot, starring Cathy Lee Crosby as Agent Prince, and the second season of late 80s Superboy TV series are coming to DVD as a part of the Warner Bros. Archive Collection. (I don't think it would surpirse anyone to learn that super-cutie Girard Chistopher’s Clark Kent/Superboy was one of the reasons I fell in love with the Superboy TV series in my youth.)

Both of these classics have an official release date of 12/11/12, but you can pre-order copies of your very own today at Warnerarchive.com.


And speaking of fun home entertainment…


The final webisodes of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome (Episodes 9 and 10) hit the web today. The full uncut pilot is scheduled to air on the Syfy network in February with a DVD and Blu-ray release planned for the same month as well. If you've been following these webisodes, you know Blood and Chrome is a more than worthy expansion of the BSG universe. It’s a shame this pilot didn’t get picked up for a full series. With the outrageous production costs that come with a show like this, I’ve often wondered why networks don’t consider an annual miniseries as an option for popular franchises like this. What do you say SyFy? We’re overdue for an “event miniseries” revival. So say we all!
