What I've Been Up To

Hey shipmates, 

Yeah, I haven't been around much lately, sorry about that. There's been a lot of personal nonsense going on that I won't go into; I come to Trekspace to take a break from sh** like that. Once the dust settles (I hope), I'll be here so much that you'll get sick of me! 



On a cheerier note, I've also been busy writing the 3rd entry in my Paul Murdock thriller series, and it is now available on Kindle! This is the first time I ever wrote a novella, rather than a…

August 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Not all that many people heard about so much as watched Roughnecks: The Starship Trooper Chronicles when it premiered in 1999.  Its inspiration -- the theatrical Starship Troopers -- was kinda/sorta split in…

August 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you missed CBS's sci-fi series Threshold (from the 2005-2006 season), then you missed some of Carla Gugino's best work.  As Dr. Molly Anne Caffrey, she was tasked with heading up a team of experts trying to unravel one of the most unusual…

August 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

As I've oft mentioned, I was never much a fan of Stargate: SG-1 ... but I'm always a fan of hot blondes!  Is there a hotter blonde in all of the STARGATE universe than Amanda Tapping?  I don't think so.  After she hung up her STARGATE fatigues, she…

August 27: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Birthday wishes today go out to producer Dean Devlin.  In his line of work, he was responsible for bringing to life the Stargate franchise when, back in 1994, he and his partners premiered the Kurt Russell / James Spader original movie.  He's also…

August 26: On This Day In Science Fiction History

One could debate the strengths and weaknesses of the JJ Abrams' Star Trek films for, quite probably, the length of an entire film.  God knows fans have, and God knows they'll continue to do so in the days, months, and years ahead of us.  One point I've always tried to make is that, despite what…

August 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've written of my fondness for The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951) many times, and, no doubt, I will again.  In fact, I will any chance I get.  As a young one, it was one of the first truly spectacular science fiction films I can remember watching on television, and I always loved…

August 24: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I hate to sound crass, but I'd be perfectly alright if some scientists wanted to shrink the lovely Raquel Welch to miniscule size and inject her inside me.  No problem at all!  That's part and parcel of the premise at work in Fantastic Voyage, which…

August 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

When it came to Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Ray Park had a tough job.  He was cast to play the (sadly) one-off villain, Darth Maul, against Jedi veteran Qui Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson).  Fortunately, he at least got to kill…

August 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you've never read anything by Ray Bradbury, well ... then ... for starters ... shame on you!  Stop what you're doing right now, and get out to your local bookstore or library.  At the very least, every science fiction fan should read "The Martian Chronicles."  (I recently got after my…

August 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Kim Cattrall did a pretty impressive job stepping into the Trek franchise as Valeris, a Spock protege who served as his 'foil' in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.  Fans embraced the character, likening her back to The…

August 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

John Noble did a terrific turn in the world of sci fi when he took the role of Dr. Walter Bishop in JJ Abrams' Fringe for Fox TV.  As the sometimes whacked out mad scientist hell bent on saving the world, Noble certainly played as the intellect…

August 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Need I say anything more than simply providing a picture?  Without this man, we wouldn't have the franchise that we all know and love so well.  Gene Roddenberry was born on this day back in 1921.  Though he's no longer with us, his legacy…

August 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Sorry, but I really can't tell you much about the short-lived, apocalyptic series called Jeremiah.  The only thing I can tell you with any certainty is that (A) it was J. Michael Straczynski's idea; (B) it starred Luke Perry: and (C) it also starred The Cosby show veteran…

Gilligan's Trek By Casey Menace

Just sit right back

And you'll hear a tale,

A tale of a fateful Trek,

The story of the Enterprise,

A star ship on a trek.

The First Officer was a Vulcan man,

The captain, a ham to go.

The Enterprise set sail that day,

For a three season show,

A three season show.

The budget started getting rough,

The trekking show was tossed.

If not for the letters of the fearless fans

The show would have been lost.

The show would have…

Still counting!

It was 41 years ago today that I was given an emergency tracheotomy. One of the so-called "doctors" actually had the balls to say to my parents, "I give him a week, tops." The last I heard, he died several years ago of a cocaine overdose, and I'm still here, just like Admiral Kirk on Regula. Like a poor marksman, he missed the target!
