Trekker treat

Attention geeks: Two pieces of Star Trek news in one day -- and no this is not as the result of some time loop as a result of a ripple in the space-time continuum.

First off, McClatchy reports that an two-part episode of the original 1966 series has been combined and remastered for a theatrical release in mid-November. Tickets will be $12.50, which is a billion percent more than the free that old "Star Trek" episodes used to be.

Secondly, Winona Ryder has been cast in the forthcoming S.T. prequel movie, helmed by J.J. Abrams. She's Spock's mother, which is disturbing, considering how hot she is. I'd like to give her the ol' Vulcan neck pinch, ifyouknowwhatImean. She apparently has a scene in the forthcoming "Sex and Death 101" where she is, per cinematical.com, "a bit naked." And that's way better than her not being naked in the least, I say. I'm also kind of psyched that Abrams is producing, since I thought he was the first guy to breathe life into the "Mission: Impossible" films. "M:I:3" is actually good.

We saw a dust bunny yesterday under Mom's bed that was the size of a small possum.
That reminds us to ask: Will there be Tribbles in the new movie?
