Back from Tholian Space

Greetings,



Yeah, I know that I've been missing in action for quite a few months now. I've had a lot of personal nonsense going on that I won't bore you with, as well as being preoccupied with work, which I WILL tell you about in the weeks to come. Another thing that I'd like to mention is that the more I look back on Star Trek: Into Darkness, the more I realize that that movie sucked, big time. At first, I was just so desperate to see any new Star Trek that I was willing to overlook…

February 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Imagine getting a guest spot on Star Trek: The Next Generation; then, imagine that your guest spot changed history.

That's essentially what happened for veteran character Christopher McDonald when he signed up for a single-episode commitment known as "Yesterday's…

February 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Seriously, is there anyone who's favorite Cardassian aboard Star Trek: Deep Space Nine wasn't Garak?  As played by the legendary character actor, Andrew Robinson, the duplicitous Garak came alive.  You never knew if he was half…

February 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

There are some episodes of Trek that I find easy to watch over and over and over again while still somehow managing to find something I missed before, and Star Trek: The Next Generation's sixth season outing, "Tapestry," is one such event.  There are just…

February 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Veteran TV actor Lorne Greene brought a tremendous amount of gravitas to the role of Commander Adama, the leader of the Colonial Fleet on the original Battlestar Galactica.  The man always had to balance out the needs of family against the demands of leadership, and the…

February 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It's arguably one of Star Trek: The Next Generation's best episodes -- as I think most Trek fans agree -- and the second season outing titled "The Measure of a Man" premiered in TV syndication on this date back in 1989.  The story saw Data…

February 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It takes talent to compose and conduct movie and television scores, but I have to believe it takes an exceptional genius to do so for science fiction and fantasy properties.  That's because it takes a precious mind indeed to take into the various flights of whimsy that make these projects truly…

February 9: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The Archons are coming! The Archons are coming!  "The Return of the Archons" sees the Enterprise traveling to Beta III to uncover the fate of the USS Archon, a Federation spaceship that went missing a century ago.  Lo and behold, things aren't quite what they seem when Kirk and crew beam…

February 8: On This Day in Science Fiction History

Well, I'll be perfectly honest ... I was never all that much a fan of Neelix.  To me, it seemed like he was a quick creation by the writers, solely for the purpose of injecting some humor into the oft-humorless world of Star Trek.  I thought they used him…

February 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

You youngsters got it pretty plush, I'd say, by having so many entertainment choices, but when I was growing up all we had for Flash Gordon was the legendary strongman himself, Buster Crabbe!  Granted, he was paired with some pretty cheesy effects, and they dressed him…

February 6: On This Day in Science Fiction History

Patrick Macnee has a legendary face and a legendary voice.  Today is his birthday, and here he is shown in a scene from the original Battlestar Galactica television series where he appeared as the mysterious Count Iblis.  Macnee was born on this day in…

February 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Capt. Buck Rogers catches a curious space sickness which somehow allows him to see through the disguises of some alien terrorists in "Mark of the Saurian," an episode of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century's 2nd season that first aired on this day back in 1981.…

February 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

One of the things that Space: Above and Beyond did exceedingly well (in my opinion) is the program shackled its main characters with some terrific emotional baggage upon which the actors could mete out a stronger performance.  Case in point: "Never No More," an hour which…

Raising my daughter with the help of Star Trek

Despite how young I am (in relative terms) I am an old fan. Read that as meaning Pre-TNG fan. I enjoyed the phasers fights, space battles, and fist fights the Original Star Trek supplied. I enjoyed Star Trek like other four year olds enjoy Star Wars or He-Man or Ghostbusters at the time. The social stories that were being told went about four feet over my head. But hey Captain Kirk just drop kicked a bad guy. And it was a time that my father and I spent time together doing things…

The return of Trek on TV?

This is pretty nifty.  I've been following this page on Facebook for a couple years and the folks behind the movement to get Enterprise a fifth season (who run this page, including Doug Drexler) post some really interesting information about what is going on behind the scenes.  It would seem that an agreement that kept Trek off TV (so as to not interfere with the JJ movies) expires this month.  Personally, I'm eager to see what this year holds as Trek should be a TV vessel for…

Just An Idea

I know that book to movie adaptations are a hit or miss, and this one will more than likely never happen, but I think the book "Night of the Living Trekkies" would make for a good movie or mini series. Heck, I'd even be willing to see it as a SyFy channel original movie if it came down to that instead. It's a good zombie story that that would be hilariously awesome and nerdy and perfect for a visual representation. Granted, a comic adaptation could work too, but I think it could suit the…

March 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

March 2 marks the birthday of everyone's favorite personal physician, Dr. Beverly Crusher, better known as Gates McFadden!  She served with distinction aboard Star Trek: The Next Generation's Enterprise-D, and the ship was a safer place knowing that she was there.  Another year wiser, another year lovelier!…See More
