I had absolutely no problem accepting that the brainy, blonde bombshell that was actress Bibi Besch -- better known to classic Trek aficionados as the original Dr. Carol Marcus (from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) -- would be the only gal woman enough in all of the galaxy to tame the wild James T. Kirk! Sadly, the JJ Universe dumbed the character down to a silly bra-baring moment, but Besch knew and played the scientist best. She also had an appearance in the 1990's SciFi comedy sleeper, Tremors.
Though she's no longer with us, Besch was born on this day in 1940.…Continue

"Evil space mine owner Kurt Belzack abducts Twiki so he can investigate the diminutive drone's unique circuitry and make cheap duplicates of Twiki to work in his mine. It's up to Buck Rogers to save Twiki. Meanwhile, Wilma Deering has her hands full with a huge floating chunk of frozen oxygen that could destroy most of the Earth's population if it veers off course."…Continue

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 sanctimony and bravado to make it perfectly believable and perfectly acceptable given the overall tone of the film. Bale was born on this day in 1974.…Continue

On this day in history from 2012, actor Avery Brooks -- better known to Trek enthusiasts as Captain Benjamin Sisko -- was arrested for a DUI in Wilton, Connecticut, after failing a sobriety test. Captain, say it isn't so!

The first season finale of Farscape -- titled "Family Ties" -- aired on this day back in 2000, and it was really a game-changer of an episode: the crew of Moya was facing certain death from the fast approaching Peacekeepers, and the final scenes seemed to almost spell certain doom for so many characters. Ah, there's nothing better than great sci-fi television, is there?…Continue

It's one thing to get a guest starring role in Star Trek; it's another thing to get an opportunity to play one of the program's mythological figures. That's what veteran actor James Cromwell got to do in Star Trek: First Contact, long revered to be the best of the TNG movies. Cromwell played Zephram Cochrane, the man responsible for not only inventing warp drive but also -- in doing so -- setting Earth on a path toward inclusion within the greater galactic community.
Cromwell was born on this day in 1940.…Continue
