I have a slightly nerdier one for you this week.

Did you know that Star Trek Generations and Stargate were the first two movies that had websites developed to publicise the movie? Both websites were launched late 1994, and featured images, trailers, behind the scenes clips and actor information.

It’s fitting that at a time when the Internet was still futuristic for a lot of people, it was two science-fiction movies that took the plunge into the online frontier.
