May 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Posted by Trekscribbler (aka Ed) on May 23, 2015 at 2:00am 0 Comments

Yes, we all know that all good things must come to an end, but why, oh why, did it have to happen after only seven seasons?  I was one who always thought -- and still does -- that Star Trek: The Next Generation -- could've gone on indefinitely.  It's episodic format made for great television storytelling.  Because Starfleet was a huge organization, producers could always bring in new characters -- even in prominent roles -- to fill in the gaps of any actors or actresses who'd decided they had enough.  Also, the entire palate of the various worlds and races of the Federation really lends itself to boundless alternatives.

Alas, it wasn't meant to be, and on this day back in 1994, TNG's wonderful send-off episode "All Good Things ..." brought about a televised…

On this day in 1992, Ripley went further than she'd ever gone before in her struggle against the aliens menacing her and our galaxy when Alien 3 premiered in theatres.  True, audiences weren't exactly won over by this latest, more existential struggle against the menace, but I liked it well enough.…

May 21, 1980.  It's a date that'll live in infamy of its own sorts.  That's the date when STAR WARS: EPISODE V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK rocked the world of fandom to its core.  That's when sci-fi fans learned a secret that no one saw coming, and it changed the way we looked at George Lucas's space western.

In the three long years since STAR WARS opened our eyes to the possibilities of what could be done on the big screen, fans had grown a bit older, a bit wiser.  What Lucas did -- along with many creative artists who contributed to TESB -- was to show us that our films can mature nicely as well, and boy did they deliver on that premise.…

I have absolutely no problem admitting my love for some of the cheesiest sci-fi movies ever made, and -- in that spirit -- I know that Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone is not a very good movie.  That, however, doesn't concern me.  It's perfect camp, performed wonderfully by Peter Strauss as the Han Solo wannabe and his plucky sidekick played by Molly Ringwald.

Plus, it has the reliable Michael Ironside as the creepiest bad guy he ever played.  What's not to love?  It came & went from theatres, released on this day in 1983, as part and parcel of a cheap 3-D craze for the early 1980's.…

George Lucas brought his Prequel Trilogy to its tragic close when Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith finally showed audiences what exactly went down when Jedi Master Anakin Skywalker embraced his inner demons and took the path to the Dark Side of the Force.  (You know that place?  The one where they have all of the cookies?)  Luke and Leia were born, delivering the film's only true hint of what things would inevitably lead to their father's redemption, but an Empire was forged in darkness once and for all on this day in 2005.…

I've said it before: I never really got Babylon 5.  It's all well and good -- I just wasn't really engaged that much by the characters, so their respective arcs just didn't resonate.  But the one I did admire was G'Kar who was played by the late Andreas Katsulas.  Katsulas had also turned in a memorable performance during Star Trek: The Next Generation's TV run, with four apperances as the Romulan Commander Tomalak.  About his work in the entertainment industry, the man once said: "People often ask me why I always play villains. I tell them, 'G'Kar's not a villain, he's a patriot!'"

Though he's no longer with us, Katsulas was born on this day in 1946.…
