December 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I'm not kidding myself: I know that I'm one of the rare few who actually enjoyed Tron: Legacy.  (Actually, I quite loved it!)  I'm okay with being one of the few and the proud.  What I liked was that I thought it was an effective continuation of the character journey of Kevin Flynn.  And…

December 3: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Monsters is one of those flicks that kinda/sorta came & went from theatres before anyone knew quite what to make of it (except the critics, of course).  I didn't see in when it played in 2010 -- it opened on this day back then -- but I've subsequently seen it on…

December 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I don't know what Charlize Theron was thinking when she signed on to such a forgettable project as 2005's Aeon Flux, which hit theatres on this day back then.  Maybe she was hoping that the anime-inspired project would turn into a franchise?  Well, it…

December 1: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Despite all of Farscape's greatness, the one area I've always said the writers struggled was in creating secondary characters almost seemingly only for the purpose of comic relief.  Utu-Noranti -- as the kindly old medicine woman -- was one such character.  Every now and then, they'd…

November 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Very few accomplished directors are able to deliver a compelling vision the way Ridley Scott can.  Then again, having been involved in the motion picture industry since the late 1950's can do that to a person.

However, Scott has been responsible for some of the most…

November 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The lovely Princess Ardala (as played by the glamorous looking Pamela Hensley) returns to cause more trouble for Capt. Buck Rogers in "Escape from Wedded Bliss."  It aired on this day back in 1979.…

November 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Well, now!  Li'l Naomi Wildman is all grow up!  Hello, sailor!  Ms. Scarlett Pomers was a nice diversion as one of the youngest passengers aboard Star Trek: Voyager.  Perhaps that was a terrific start, though, toward wearing all…

November 27: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day back in 2002, the Walt Disney Company put a sci-fi spin on the Robert Louis Stevenson classic when they launched Treasure Planet in theatres.  It wasn't exactly what you'd call a 'hit' by any measure: on a budget purported to be $140M, it…

November 26: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1986, the original crew of the Starship Enterprise returned to the big screen.  Having experienced death and resurrection, it was time to 'lighten things up' a bit, and that's precisely what Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home did.  It…

November 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

For a whole generation of Star Trek fans, the late great Ricardo Montalban never received enough credit for helping to resurrect our franchise from near-cinema obscurity as a borderline cult fascination and pushed it well into the light for all to see; this is because even today many revere…

November 24: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Oh, Denise Crosby!  We barely knew ye!  The lovely Tasha Yar met an untimely demise early on in Star Trek: The Next Generation's first season, but to put it as Denise puts it her character had to die in order to actually get one of…

November 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

An all-new franchise is born when on this day back in 1963 the legendary BBC sci-fi program Doctor Who began with the airing of its first episode ever, titled "An Unearthly Child."  26 seasons later (in 1989), the Doctor would end only the first of his runs;…

November 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Well, unless something super-wild-unpredictable happens, I guess Star Trek: First Contact -- released on this day back in 1996 -- will remain my favorite of the Next Generation series of movies.  I wasn't as thrilled with it as most Trekkies,…

November 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Dr. Bashir was always a bit of an odd duck to me.  When he first showed up on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, he was kinda/sorta ... well ... loopy, for lack of a better word.  I'd read somewheres that producers had initially intended his sexuality…

November 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Ladies in the sci-fi universe mustn't only be sexy to survive ... they gotta be tough.

And being brainy sure doesn't hurt.  Those are all of the distinct vibes given off my actress Ming-Na Wen, which is what made…

November 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Big day in the history of Star Trek in particular, readers, as November 19th serves up not one but two significant birthdays in its universe (along with a few other lesser ones, as well).

The Star Trek Wars

I'm on the Facebook and I follow a certain group on there called Starfleet Academy. If you are unfamiliar with this group they write about topics and events, in a news format, that happen in our universe and place it in the Star Trek Universe. A basic example would be Pearl Harbor would be a Starbase destroyed. It isn't the grand exploration of the starship Enterprise or the ambassador of the week stories the television show but more of a other things happen besides what happens on the show.…

Well, well, well ... impressive indeed!  On this day in 1994, the past meant the present in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's debut motion picture, Star Trek: Generations, which saw the venerable Capt. James T. Kirk meeting his demise in an act of bravery that saved everyone…
