January 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 2008, The Terminator franchise took a relatively bold new direction when Fox Television premiered Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  The premise was simple -- put John Connor in high school and have his mother and he…

January 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Actress Kirstie Alley's "involvement" in our beloved franchise has been the subject of much debate and heresay.

For example, I've read in some places that she really didn't want to continue as part of the growing Star…

January 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The great character actor, William Sanderson, has rather deftly switched between comedy and drama, though methinks he's always played pitch perfect when cast somewhere decidedly in-between those two genres.  He had a solid run on HBO's True…

January 9: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Pardon me if my manhood is showing, but only a total b@d@ss like Lee Van Cleef had the stones to give Snake Plissken his marching orders in one of my personal favorite flicks from the '80's -- Escape from New York.  Van Cleef made a name for himself in some…

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…

January 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Today marks the birthday of Ensign Ro Laren, better known in reality as Michelle Forbes, born on this day in 1965.  Forbes had only a handful of appearances in her run aboard Star Trek: The Next Generation, but she quickly became a fan favorite.  Since Star…

January 7: On This Day in Science Fiction History

January 7, 1934 has been long regarded as the birthdate of Flash Gordon as that was the day the popular comic strips of Alex Raymond were first published.  "Flash" inspired a whole slew of imitators, but no other sci-fi hero has stood the test of time…

January 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

There's quite a bit of the original Star Trek that deserves celebrating, but one of the finest hours they ever produced -- so far as this bumbling scribe is concerned -- was "The Galileo 7."  It was a stand-out episode that pitted the crew of a…

January 3: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1993, Rick Berman went back to the well -- dipped himself in it quite nicely, if I may say so myself -- when he and other creative types boldly went where Star Trek hadn't quite been before when Star Trek: Deep Space Nine premiered…

January 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

There are some writers whose names have long grown synonymous with their chosen genre.  For example, one cannot think of 'fantasy' without thinking of the works of C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien.  One cannot think of legal thrillers' without thinking about Scott Turow or John Grisham.  And certainly…

Frank Langella has had quite the career, but I personally remember him most from his brief stint on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  While there, he played a conniving Bajoran politician/priest trying to usurp power…

December 31: On This Day In Science Fiction History

In the 1980's, V was all the rage for a time.  It all started out as a popular mini-series that explored what might happen if an alien intelligence (with a secret agenda, of course) showed itself to the residents of planet Earth -- how would folks react, what would be the short-term…

December 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

One of my most favorite programs of the last decade is Star Wars: The Clone Wars because I think it's much closer to the spirit of the Original Star Wars Trilogy than was so much of the Prequels, but that's an argument for another day and another time.  On the show, voice actress…

December 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I ask you: has any other television show's mythology ever been rich enough to allow for the existence of a Tribble?  On this day back in 1967, the beloved warm-fuzzy kitten of tomorrow -- the Tribble -- was introduced into Trek lore with the aptly titled, "The Trouble with Tribbles."  It's…

Christian Bale's reputation took a bit of a drubbing when he appeared as the legendary John Connor in the poorly-reviewed Terminator Salvation, but, for all the beating it took, I enjoyed the film well enough.  I thought Bale's performance as the leader of Earth's salvation had just the right amount of misplaced…See More
