As I've said many times before, I never much cared for Firefly or its subsequent theatrical outing Serenity. It was all well and good ... just not my cup of tea. But I love the work of Adam Baldwin. He's been a terrific addition to The Last Ship on TNT, if you caught any of its first season. Plus, I follow him on Twitter. Baldwin was born on this day in 1962.…Continue

Who's up for a little dabo?
Then how about a little Dabo girl?
Well, how about the best damn Dabo Girl in all the known universe? The always stunningly lovely Chase Masterson of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fame turns another year lovelier today. Our special lady was born on this day in 1963.

Certainly, Tea Leoni was a bit of an "it girl" for awhile. She came out of nowhere and enjoyed great critical acclaim for her work. Sadly -- as fame is fleeting -- it just never quite seemed to last for her. Still, she turned in a terrific performance as part of the sci-fi ensemble, Deep Impact (1998), which saw a group of people trying to prepare mankind for an Extinction-Level-Event. Leoni was born on this day in 1966.…Continue

As I've mentioned many times, I was a slow convert to Syfy's updated Battlestar Galactica. The chief problem I had with it initially was that I thought the pacing on the original miniseries was just plain awful: as it turned out, I watched it on DVD when it was released, and I found that it played better without the massive advertising breaks Syfy had broken it up with on its first airing. Then, I explored the program on DVD except for the final season which I did watch live.
Hats off to veteran character actor Edward James Olmos from bringing his immeasurable gravitas to the production. While I could nitpick some of the lesser players, Olmos was always showing up with his A game intact; and while I'll probably always prefer the…Continue

She's been called many things. Number One. Nurse Chapel. Computer. But perhaps the very best is "The Grand Dame of the Galaxy" who stood alongside "The Great Bird of the Galaxy" for so very long. Mostly, she answered to Majel. Majel Barrett. Majel Barrett Roddenberry. She was such an instrumental part of the Trek franchise for very long, being there from the beginning with Gene and the rest. Though she's no longer with us, Barrett was born on this day in 1932.…Continue

Well, well, well, fellow science fiction enthusiasts ... look what the Targ dragged in today!
Star Trek: Voyager was a bit of a red-headed stepchild to me. It never really set out to explore the strange new worlds it could've, and that may've been because as the flagship show for a new network perhaps the Paramount suits really wanted a bit more of the same winning Star Trek formula that had explored the Alpha Quadrant for years. But Voyager did a few things nicely, and one of them was introducing a former Borg convert to the mythology with Seven of Nine. Like her or hate her, Seven probably helped salvage Voyager's ratings -- or, at least, stabilized them -- among fandom by giving it something new, exciting, and…Continue
