First thing I did was clear a space for the work.
Then checked the patterns before laying them down on the black or teal fabrics. I used yellow chalk (didn't have white, which would work just as well; it's kids chalk, used for outside on concrete surfaces and worked fine on the fabric and washed out nicely) to outline the pattern pieces instead of pinning them to the fabric. That saves the pattern from being torn every time one used the pins.
Once the pattern…Continue

During his stint on our plane of existence, Stan Winston did many things to establish the 'street cred' of science fiction films, but his single greatest contribution -- so far as this sci fi enthusiast is concerned…Continue

Within all of human history, there are benchmarks, and there are hallmarks.
“Benchmarks” indicate a high-water mark – a new zenith, a new line drawn in the sand for others to meet or cross – while “hallmarks” are achievements…Continue

Maybe its because I hated Insurrection so much that Nemesis never struck me as the worst movie in the series. It had good action, good effects, and Bane...I mean Shinzon, was an interesting heavy, although even after 12 years, I'm still a little fuzzy as to just what his motivation was.
All in all, I'd say that Nemesis was a good movie that could've been great. It'd be interesting to see what it would've been like, had the writers given the script 1 more draft.

STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE gave a good handful of actors the chance to play some monumental 'baddies' in the shape of the Cardassians, and Casey Biggs certainly rose to the challenge. He gave his character Damar the chance to go from bad to kinda/sorta good as he led the resistance effort to take back…Continue

I'll never say that I disliked the singing scamp Ewan McGregor as George Lucas's choice to play a young Obi-Wan Kenobi; rather, I tend to say that I preferred the gravitas Sir Alec Guinness brought to the more learned, more practiced Jedi Master. Sure, I've heard…Continue

Will be starting my second Star Trek Uniform and it should be better than the first try. =^-^= will need to get more fabric in the coming months for both new Star Trek uniforms and Star Wars Jedi uniforms. calling them costumes just don't seem to be right to me. and NO, Mokey will NOT be getting any 'dog uniforms'. he is a Service Dog and can not have them, on duty or off duty (which, sadly,…Continue

I can still remember seeing THE MATRIX in theatres. Although it premiered on this day back in 1999, I know that I didn't rush out to the movies to see it right away. After all, it starred Keanu Reeves, so I figured it was probably going to end up being as tepid as…Continue

When STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION premiered, I'm not entirely sure fans were all that enamored with the character of ship's counselor Deanna Troi. It wasn't that she wasn't interesting and lovely as portrayed by series regular Marina Sirtis -- rather, it's that the writers didn't quite…Continue

Those of us who grew up with the original STAR TREK know firsthand how important Leonard Nimoy is to our beloved franchise. As the half-human half-Vulcan sciences officer Mr. Spock, Leonard brought a special gravitas to the role, showing audiences even an alien…Continue

I went to the Star Trek Destination 2014 in Frankfurt Germany, simple event, not all that spectacular but non the less still lots of fun. Got photos with William Shatner, Marina Sertis, Brent Spiner and others. Photos of the event were posted on my Facebook page.

Wow. I imagine that it would've been pretty hard to play a Klingon under all that make-up and costuming, but talent like Robert O'Reilly sure made it look easy. He played Gowron, who started out on STAR TREK:…Continue

Veteran character actor R. Lee Ermey pretty much has one character in his repertoire -- that of a blisteringly mad but horrifically efficient drill sergeant -- but what a character indeed! He's the kind of guy you wouldn't want to make angry, that's for sure, and he's…Continue
