About Pan Am

Just like those who traveled previously to Terra Nova, fans can apply now to be a part of the Eleventh Pilgrimage to TERRA NOVA, the next voyage of the extraordinary global effort to save the human race. The Eleventh Pilgrimage lottery launches today at liveterranova.com, a social-enabled website where fans can test their qualifications and enter the lottery for the next trip to Terra Nova.

Fans can join the experience by logging in with their Facebook ID and then submitting to a “retinal scan” sequence.

Subsequent weekly assessments, beginning September 5, will test endurance, recall and dexterity, each of which could result in the elimination of an additional friend from the lottery.

ABC Releases Five Posters for Once Upon A Time at Comic-Con!

ABC has released five posters for their new fairytale drama series, Once Upon A Time, at Comic-Con. I missed seeing these there. Did you? Well, here they are if you did miss them.

Once Upon A Time is from Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, who were the executive producers of Lost. This story is about Emma Swan who has taken care of herself her entire life since she was an abandoned baby. Her son (Henry) that she left for adoption finds her and tells her that she is Snow White’s and Prince Charming’s missing daughter. Emma takes Henry back home to Storybrooke and finds it is a place where magic had been forgotten but still there.

The show sounds interesting and gives an impression that there is a lot of stories to tell. I’ll probably take a look and see how it is. How about you?

ABC’s PAN AM Poster and Photos

The poster for ABC’s upcoming show Pan Am starring Christina Ricci is shown below. The show will premiere on September 25th at 10/9c.

Passion, jealousy and espionage… They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet. The style of the 1960s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age and a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously mesh in this thrilling and highly-original new series.

In this modern world, air travel represents the height of luxury and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business. The planes are glamorous, the pilots are rock stars and the stewardesses are the most desirable women in the world. Not only are these flyboys and girls young and good looking, but to represent Pan Am they also have to be educated, cultured and refined. They’re trained to handle everything from in-air emergencies to unwanted advances – all without rumpling their pristine uniforms or mussing their hair. There’s Dean (Mike Vogel) – a cocky, charismatic and ambitious new pilot – the first of a new breed not trained in the war. On the sly against company policy, he’s dating Bridget, a stunning beauty with a mysterious past. A rebellious bohemian, Maggie (Christina Ricci) turns into a buttoned up professional for work so she can see the world. Rounding out the crew are flirtatious Colette (Karine Vanasse), the adventurous Kate (Kelli Garner) and, finally, Laura (Margot Robbie) – Kate’s beauty queen younger sister, a runaway bride, who recently fled a life of domestic boredom to take to the skies.

Science and STAR TREK Join Forces with Feature Length Roddenberry Documentary TREK NATION

With the 2011 Comic-Con International in San Diego as the backdrop, SCIENCE today announced its partnership with science fiction royalty, Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, and Roddenberry Entertainment on the upcoming the feature-length special, TREK NATION, scheduled to air in fourth quarter 2011. TREK NATION explores the popularity and appeal of Star Trek through the man who created it all – the late Gene Roddenberry.

Rod will take SCIENCE audiences along with him as he explores his father’s work and the impact of his legacy that still resonates today. Through interviews with his most devoted fans, including George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Stan Lee and many others, TREK NATION is the story of a son trying to learn more about his father by unraveling the intricacies of Star Trek.

The film demonstrates how Gene’s work not only captivated legions of fans across the globe, but also generated a movement which has influenced entertainment, politics, space travel, social morality and much more. Fostering a timeless understanding of the human condition and capturing man’s constant search for a better world defines everything that is TREK NATION.

“This project is very personal for me, as it literally documents my education on Star Trek, my father, and the Roddenberry legacy. Because of that, I can’t tell you how happy we are to have found a network that shares our vision for it,” said Rod Roddenberry “TREK NATION strikes a strong balance between exploring a science fiction phenomenon and relating a very universal story between a son and his father. I have every confidence that Star Trek fans and non-Star Trek fans alike are going to enjoy the film.”

“Star Trek isn’t just a television show; it is a global phenomenon, a way of life, which has shaped so many facets of how we define our world today,” said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vice president of SCIENCE. “We are honored to carry on the Roddenberry mission by continuing his legacy with TREK NATION.”

TREK NATION is produced for SCIENCE by Roddenberry Entertainment. Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry is an executive producer and Trevor Roth is a producer for Roddenberry Entertainment. Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production and executive producer for SCIENCE. New Animal Productions producer is Nicole Rittenmeyer and Scott Colthorp produces for Atmosphere Pictures.
