• Anthony Quinto and Leonard Nimoy talk Spock.

• Guillermo Del Toro talks about his next film, which is not The Hobbit: “It’s like, what would happen if the Apocalypse was viewed by you [while] doing errands.

Farscape gets a comic! Judging by the comic art, it looks like it might be set in the post-D’argo era. That’s a shame: Everything after Season Three was a wildly, icy slalom downhill.

Is it time to remake Blade Runner? No. I should punch you in the mouth for even thinking that.

The Star Wars live-action show will reveal the galaxy’s greasy, seamy underbelly. Why does the universe’s underbelly have a seam? Did it get an appendectomy? So curious.

• Sci-Fi Japan has a gorgeous post on the history of Speed Racer.

• io9 claims the new Starship Troopers 3 is going to be great. I’m positive they are out of their gourds, but can’t prove it.
