August 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Li'l Jake Sisko (not so li'l anymore) had a pretty sweet gig (well, until the Dominion War came along as part of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's epic storyline).  He got to grow up on a space station on the edge of the galactic frontier.  His dad was…

August 6: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The problem I have with most people who want to endlessly gripe about Fox Television constantly cancelling science fiction programs is that they typically ignore the reality of the situation: most shows that get shut down suffer that fate because they simply didn't catch fire in the here and now.  Generally,…

August 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

All things considered, 2011's Green Lantern movie was pretty awful for a lot of small reasons, but -- as can happen -- when enough of those small things get added up it ends up creating a pretty big stink.  From what I've read, it seems like a lot of young children seemed to like…

August 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The late Don S. Davis had a presence that practically screamed "authority figure."  I can remember first being attuned to what he could do in a role in the much revered cult TV series, Twin Peaks, in the 90's, but perhaps Davis was best known for coming into his own with…

August 3: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It isn't that 2012's version of Total Recall -- which premiered on this day back then -- was a bad film necessarily.  It had plenty going for it.  I think the only real reason it didn't find a bigger audience is that the original really wasn't all…

August 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Modern-day science fiction owes an awful lot to Sam Worthington.  A virtual unknown when he began acting in 2000, Worthington's work quickly drew the attention of some pretty big names in the entertainment business.  It wasn't long before he was cast as a brand-new make of Terminator…

August 1: On This Day In Science Fiction History

There are Star Trek books, and then there are Star Trek Books.  Notice the capital 'B.'  Star Trek: Imzadi -- by long-time Trek scribe Peter David -- is one of the high points in all of Trekdom ... and, yes, I even mean that…

July 31: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Wow.  What a career one must have to star in not one but two massively successful sci-fi franchises!  Michael Biehn first came onto screens as Kyle Reese, a soldier from our future sent back in time to save Sarah Connor from The…

July 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

In 1984, he showed us what the future might look like as The Terminator.  In 1987, he fought the Predator in order to save the rest of us from it.  That same year, he ran for his own life in The Running Man.  In 1990, he went to Mars and joined the…

July 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

What's a kid to do when he's hauled around with his single mom from one job to the next?  Well, if you're Wil Wheaton, then you find a way to drive the flagship of the Federation, that's what you do!  It wasn't easy being Wesley Crusher -- superbrain,…

July 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

This could likely be the biggest case of "I Don't Know The Face" in history, considering people everywhere are possibly quite familiar with the voice.  The face above belongs to Peter Cullen, and, while he may not look familiar, he's the voice of none other than Optimus Prime of TRANSFORMERS fame!…

Who knew that the Stargate would ever be opened up again?

On this day back in 1997, that's just what happened when Showtime (a premium cable network) launched a new series in the Stargate: SG-1…

July 26: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I'd heard it said somewheres that showrunners for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine had originally intended Michelle Forbes to head-up the Bajoran contingent of the cast as Ensign Ro; however, Ms. Forbes had moved on in her career and apparently was no…

July 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Think what you may about Friends' regular Matt LeBlanc, but he was about the only thing that somehow felt right in the 1998 attempted reboot of Lost in Space (1998).  The film performed poorly (mostly when you figure in its…

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!

The Start of Something Big (I hope)

My new science fiction novel, "Gone A-Viking," went on sale on Thursday on Kindle, and has already sold 4 copies. Not exactly Stephen King, but it's still the most books I've ever sold in such a short amount of time. If anyone here was one of the buyers, you have my eternal gratitude!

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 responsible for 1996's Independence Day, as well as the pretty awful…See More
