These photos are awesome. I like Pyramid Rock the best because of the detail.

This is precisely the type of story that a Star Trek film should be telling instead of the mindless action film dribble that JJ Abrams is making.
Paramount seriously needs to consider licensing the Star Trek characters to those who wish to use them in creative endeavours. Make it so people can afford to make stuff. If they make money, then Paramount gets a modest cut without having to put forth much effort. If they don't make money, then no harm, no foul. Let people tell stories and add to the various Trek Universes (even create their own!). We'll all be the richer for it.
This decision has made me decide against subscribing to CBS All Access in order to watch the new Star Trek Series. I'll just download them from the usual sources.
I have actively disliked Paramount ever since they wanted a confiscatory amount for VHS Tapes of the episodes back in late eighties and early nineties and when the DVDs came out. The prices weighed heavily on my decision to go to the black market to obtain episodes. I did buy all the episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise on Amazon Unbox (the forerunner to Amazon Prime -- where they are in my digital library) because the price was the same as other TV Shows.

Meanwhile, I'll contribute to a defense fund for these guys if needed.
It could have been worse...it could have been Bing.
It seems to me that we should be out in the solar system a century hence, with serious interstellar ambitions instead of still being confined at the bottom of our gravity well cradle.

Believe that we are a mighty folk. Who can.
"We are entering 2016 with 15 spacecraft probably actively returning science data from planets, moons, and smaller bodies in the solar system. (I say "probably" because I don't know for sure what the Chinese lunar spacecraft are doing.) Akatsuki is at Venus, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and two Chang'e missions at the Moon, two rovers and five orbiters are active at Mars, Dawn is at Ceres, Rosetta is at 67P, Cassini is at Saturn, and although New Horizons is far past Pluto, it'll be sending back new Pluto science data for most of the year, so I'm counting that as still doing science. Another two missions (Hayabusa2 and Juno) are in their cruise phase; Juno arrives at Jupiter in August. Two (ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter and OSIRIS-Rex) or three (if you count the Schiaparelli lander separately) will launch this year, with their science starting after 2016. The Voyagers and other heliophysics missions don't show up on this chart."
