After a four-year wait, Star Trek fans have finally been taken into darkness with the second chapter in the J.J. Abrams take on Gene Roddenberry’s creation. In this episode of The Ready Room we’re joined by Tristan Riddell, Charlynn Schmiedt, Matthew Rushing, and Lorrie Sears to discuss our impressions of the film, what we liked, what we disliked, and what it means for the future of the franchise.

In news we look at the upcoming Creation conventions in Chicago and Boston, Bing’s new Klingon translation option, a major UK Blu-ray bargain on Enterprise season two, the new Star Trek Rivals card game for iPhone and iPad, and Shatner’s new Captains Close-up mini series on EPIX, and a look at the initial box office number for Star Trek Into Darkness. 

Running Time: 1 hour 38 minutes
