You've heard about how the "Back to the Future" trilogy travels to the year 2015, and you've read countless lists of what the movie got right and wrong about the future.

Now thanks to Nike, there will be one more thing that the movie series gets right. The famous Nike high-tops worn by Marty McFly/Michael J. Fox in "Back to the Future 2" will come to life in a 2015 release -- with the Power Laces.

read more about it here.

that's cool & all, but sometimes you need to adjust your laces either tighter or looser, depending on what's going on with your feet at any given moment.

Kristin and Zachary make no effort to hide their love of all things nerdy, including each other. So when they decided to tie the knot, they were determined to let their geek flag fly.

And fly it does, like Harry Potter's Nimbus 2000 strapped to an X-Wing.

Let's start with the invitations. Eschewing the traditional lace and floral designs, the couple opted for old-school NES cartridge style invites, complete with Mystery box cards for RSVPs.

(Reuters) - A North Carolina town councilman planning to run for U.S. Congress has quit his post by submitting a resignation letter in Klingon, the language of a fictional extraterrestrial warrior species on the "Star Trek" TV and film series.

David Waddell said he used Klingon to resign from the Indian Trail Town Council on Thursday because the fierce-looking science fiction characters valued integrity, honor and duty.

The letter indicated that Waddell, whose four-year term is up in December 2015, plans to resign at the end of this month.

"Teach (the) city (the) constitution," said the English translation. "I will return next time to (witness) victory."

When Logan and Brooke Fernandes got married in 2003, it was a low-key affair with just family and a few close friends present. Ten years and two kids later, Logan wanted to do something really special for their anniversary, so he surprised his wife with the geeky dream wedding they couldn't afford when they first tied the knot.

The couple, who were high school sweethearts, originally bonded over a shared love of sci-fi shows and video games. “A lot of the shows we like, like 'Firefly' and 'Doctor Who,' we fell in love with as they came on and we discovered them together,” Logan explained.

they're up to season 3 now and the best of the season, some would argue the best of TNG, is the best of both worlds. but since it was an end of the season cliffhanger they had to include part 2, even though that's the first episode of season 4. i don't know if they'll have another episodes from season 3 & 4 later to make up for it.

april 25 is the day! check out the site for more details & theater locations

We already knew President Barack Obama was a nerd but this…this solidifies his place in our intergalactic records. Remember when we reported on that petition someone started to get the United States government to fund the building of a Death Star ala Star Wars? We all had a good laugh, knew it wouldn’t happen, and assumed they wouldn’t even get a response. They did. While it may not be the one petitioners were hoping for, it’s probably the single best response to anything, ever.
Petitions submitted to need to get 25,000 signatures before the administration is required to respond. The Death Star submission got almost 10,000 more. So what about that reply?
First of all, it was titled “This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For,” so we knew right off the bat this was going to be good. The author of the reply, Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget, goes on to break down the most important reasons why they decided not to build a Death Star for the U.S

ABC entertainment president Paul Lee says he’s going to take a look at the long-gestating Star Wars live-action TV series now that the Disney deal to acquire Lucasfilm is complete.
“We’d love to do something with Lucasfilm, we’re not sure what yet,” Lee exclusively told EW. “We haven’t even sat down with them. We’re going to look at [the live-action series], we’re going to look at all of them, and see what’s right. We weren’t able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. It’s definitely going to be part of the conversation.”
Even many working in Hollywood don’t realize a live-action Star Wars TV series has been sitting on the shelf the past few years. The project was commissioned by longtime Lucasfilm producer Rick McCallum, who enlisted writers such as Battlestar Galactica‘s Ron Moore and swore them to NDA secrecy on the plot details (more on the show’s storyline below). Fifty scripts were written. McCallum once called the scripts the most “provocative, bold and daring material that we’ve ever done.”
And then … nothing.

according to the linked story in the quoted paragraph, it could cost 4 or 5 million per episode. yikes! makes terra nova at about 1 million seem cheap, doesn't it. i guess they could cut cost by eliminating a lot of the special effects or reusing stuff like establishing shots of planets and cities. also by building sets that could be reused a lot just by redecorating them a little to be used for multiple places.
