Looks like Paramount doesn’t want to let Disney hog all the stars in the galaxy. The studio is moving faster than the speed of light to expand the Star Trek universe and bring the Starship Enterprise back to the big screen. In what would be the first Trek film in almost a decade, the untitled prequel is slated to take place decades before J.J. Abrams’ 2009 feature that introduced viewers to the Kelvin timeline. The origin story will be directed by Toby Haynes, who will be trading in a lightsaber for a phaser after previously directing episodes of the Star Wars series Andor. Again, the film will be the studio’s first trek back to the movies after fixing much of its energy on the show’s origin in television with shows like Picard and the animated series Lower Decks.

Meanwhile, down on land, pivotal casting decisions have been made ahead of the production of the next season of HBO’s The Last of Us. After nabbing eight Creative Arts Emmys, the show added two impressive talents to its roster, starting with No One Will Save You and Booksmart star Kaitlyn Dever. This isn’t Dever’s first interaction with the show as she previously auditioned for Ellie, a role that ultimately went to Emmy nominee Bella Ramsey. Additionally, after a standout performance on Netflix’s BeefYoung Mazino also joins Pedro Pascal, Ramsey and Dever as a character said to be “a pillar of his community who puts everyone else’s needs before his own, sometimes at a terrible cost.” Production is expected to start in the spring, with a return to air set for next year. 

In between all of this galactic and post-apocalyptic news, the timeline has remained the place for laughs. Today’s funniest tweets include those about the saving grace of Google Maps, the fallen president who honestly deserved it and the most precious loaf of bread ever.
