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

Despite it being a bad idea, the crew of the Enterprise directly and indirectly 'tinkered' in Earth's past on more than one occasion, but none was quite as memorable and downright fun as first season's "Tomorrow Is Yesterday." This Star Trek hour saw the crew of the Enterprise thrown back to the year 1969 and being identified as a UFO, and it first aired on this day in 1967.…Continue

On Syfy's Defiance, she runs a brothel. Pardon my obvious sexism, but I'm guessing it's a very successful brothel. Mia Kirshner cut her acting teeth in a whole slew of mostly forgettable minor roles, but it was her wicked transformation as the terrorist-for-hire in Fox TV's 24 program that propelled her career into new heights. With her plum appearance as a regular on Defiance, she's finally reaping the benefits of her perseverance. Ms. Kirschner was born on this day back in 1975.…Continue

You may not know his face, but chances are you've heard his voice ... or voices! Phil LaMarr has contributed to several sci-fi-related animation projects, from Futurama to Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Today, he celebrates his birthday, born on this day in 1967!Continue

I think you can always judge a franchise based in part on the charisma of its lead. Shatner, Browder, and even Boxleitner come to mind, and one name I'd definitely add to that list is Gil Gerard. In the 80's, he was the face of televised science fiction as he headlined the latest incarnation of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century for NBC. Gerard has lead a relatively quiet life since that time (though he might feel differently), but, if you get the chance, toss in the DVDs sometime this week to honor the man's contribution to science fiction. I think you'll be surprised how well it all holds up, thanks to his capable shoulders!
Gerard was born on this day back in 1943.…Continue
