Next up on the “remastered” episodes of the original Star Trek airing this weekend: “The Ultimate Computer”. This has a lot of potential with the space battle between the Enterprise and 4 other Federation cruisers, although I think its still unlikely that 4 cruisers on an attack would be so close together. Still, it would be good to see. Read More for the episode description and 4 still images. Check local listings for when it airs in your area.

Ever since Jurassic Park, we?ve dreamed of recreating dinosaurs. But the
science behind this fantasy seemed impossible — until now. Remarkable
genetic advances are revealing that the DNA of dinosaurs and birds are
extremely similar. And scientists are uncovering ancient dinosaur traits in birds? DNA like teeth and long dinosaur tails. Advances in genetic engineering are moving so fast that famed paleontologist Jack Horner believes within our lifetime it will be possible to retro-engineer a dinosaur-like creature from a bird.

You can either blame Ford, or blame GM, depending which car manufacturer you dislike more, but the car makers are behind the reason that the voice of K.I.T.T. in the new Knight Rider telefilm/pilot is being replaced. Will Arnett had already completed his voice work for the role, but he has also been the voice of GMC Truck commercials for years.

K.I.T.T. will instead be voiced by Val Kilmer (Batman Forever, Deja Vu).
