Qapla’! Klingon Warnog Beer Coming Later This Year

Klingon Warnog Beer Coming Later This Year

On Monday, CBS Consumer Products and Federation of Beer announced the introduction of the Klingon Warnog. Brewed by Tin Man Brewing Company of Evansville, Indiana, the Star Trek-themed beer blends rye malt with a traditional clove character.

Warnog’s aroma is predominantly mild banana and clove produced by the German wheat yeast, supported by subtle sweet malt character from the use of Munich malt. The flavor draws heavily from the blending of the rye malt and traditional clove character, creating a very rich and unique flavor. The inclusion of wheat and caramel malts help to round out the mouthfeel of this beer, making this Dunkelweizen hearty enough to be called a Klingon Warnog.

The beer is set to be previewed at the Las Vegas Nightclub & Bar Show later this month and will be rolled out to distributors in the US and Canada later this year.

New Deluxe ‘Star Trek: Nemesis’ Soundtrack Coming In January

New Deluxe 'Star Trek: Nemesis' Soundtrack Coming In January

Next month, Varèse Sarabande will release a a newly expanded “deluxe” version of the Star Trek: Nemesis soundtrack.

Limited to 5,000 copies, the new two-disc set will include 46 tracks, by legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith.

Varèse Sarabande is currently accepting pre-orders for Star Trek Nemesis: The Deluxe Edition, which priced at $24.98. Pre-orders will begin shipping on January 6, 2014.

Scroll down for a full track listing.

Star Trek: Nemesis Soundtrack - Deluxe Edition

Star Trek: Nemesis Soundtrack – Deluxe Edition

star-trek-nemesis-sountrack-back

Official description:

It was, sadly, one of Jerry Goldsmith’s last film scores. Only Timeline and Looney Tunes: Back In Action (both 2003) would follow it. In 2002 Jerry Goldsmith took his final voyage on the fabled USS Enterprise and gave Star Trek Nemesis and the whole Next Generation crew an epic send-off.

This is the release so many Star Trek fans have been waiting for. Goldsmith’s complete score from Star Trek Nemesis is presented, along with a set of bonus tracks that includes source music, a set of alternate cues and mixes, plus a rare opportunity to listen in to the final moments of Jerry Goldsmith on the Star Trek scoring stage with his orchestra and director Stuart Baird.

In the wake of a joyful wedding between Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis), Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) receives another reason to celebrate: the Romulans want peace and the captain will be the Federation’s emissary. But as the Enterprise heads toward the Romulan Empire, a brilliant villain awaits — harboring a diabolical plan of destruction and an unimaginable secret that will give Picard his most fearsome challenge.

We’re very excited to mark the return of the Varèse Sarabande CD Club with this historic and important Jerry Goldsmith release.

REVIEW: Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray

REVIEW: Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray

Today, Star Trek Into Darkness officially hits store shelves. Following an early digital release through iTunes, the film will be available as a Blu-ray 3D combo pack, a Blu-ray combo pack, and standard DVD.

This review is specific to the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Download combo pack version that we were provided for review purposes. Additional versions, with varying bonus features, will be available at specific retailers, including Target, Best Buy, Amazon.com, and Walmart.

A little confusing, right?

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

First, let’s take a peek at the official movie description to wet our pallete:

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew

Sounds intriguing, let’s get to the review.

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Movie

The movie itself has been discussed at length ad nauseam and picked apart piece-by-piece in multiple online reviews. So, I’ll keep the review of the film itself to a minimum.

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Was Star Trek Into Darkness the perfect sci-fi epic, I had hoped for? No. Not even close. However, as a cerebral action movie, it was a fun two-hour thrill ride and far better than it may have been with a different creative team at the helm.

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Video

I watched the movie on a 50″ Samsung 1080p high-definition plasma TV. I was completely blown away at how beautiful the transfer of this film was. From the rich red of the leaves on the Niburu trees to the deep blacks of space, the movie was visually stunning and an absolute pleasure to watch.

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Audio

In-line with the superb visual presentation, the audio track that was delivered to my 5.1 Onkyo receiver was top notch. Michael Giacchino’s score pounded in my chest as I prepared to be taken on a ride to the 23rd century with some familiar friends — Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura and Scotty. The audio quality alone makes this film a great addition to your collection — if for nothing else than to show off your audio equipment to friends and family.

star-trek-into-darkness-blu-ray-review-05

Special Features

Now we get to the real bummer for this release. While the 2-disc set includes a few interesting bonus features — including in-depth looks at the filming and creation of some of the film’s most memorable scenes, I was left hoping for so much more. The most glaring omission is the lack of director commentary. With most Blu-ray releases, it’s almost expected. However, on this version, there’s none to be found. Varying content will be provided on the exclusive Target and Best Buy versions of the film.

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Ultimately, this release forces the most hardcore Star Trek fans to purchase multiple versions of this film, if they want to see the full gamut of special features. Something about that just doesn’t sit right with me. Although, for those who are looking to pick it up solely for the film itself, Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray is a solid buy.
