Say what you will about the new-fangled Battlestar Galactica, but I preferred the wholesome, do-gooder charm of the original just a bit more. And Starbuck? A girl? No way! Dirk Benedict remains Starbuck in my mind, and the actor who played him celebrates another year growing older and wiser today! Benedict was born on this day in 1945.…Continue
When the original series first aired, I was very young, and my dad was a fan, so watching Star Trek is among my first memories. One day, I took special note of Kirk and Spock on the bridge. Kirk was the Captain ... but when Kirk needed help, he turned to Spock for the Vulcan's intelligence. And Spock reminded me of my dad, so when I saw him on TV, it was like looking at a relative.

Any meaning we get from it along the way is entirely dependent upon what we choose to attribute there in that moment, whether it be happy, sad, or numb.
I can remember being a little boy -- back in the glory days of extreme youth. It's a singular scene in my mind's eye. I don't recall exactly where I was -- my parents I believe had taken me over to a friend's house, and I think I was being deposited there on the living room floor as the adults were going out, or maybe they…Continue
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
