Star Trek: Nemesis. Come on, it wasn't THAT bad!

Maybe its because I hated Insurrection so much that Nemesis never struck me as the worst movie in the series. It had good action, good effects, and Bane...I mean Shinzon, was an interesting heavy, although even after 12 years, I'm still a little fuzzy as to just what his motivation was. All in all, I'd say that Nemesis was a good movie that could've been great. It'd be interesting to see what it would've been like, had the writers given the script 1 more draft.See More

About Me:
Greetings, Gentlebeings,
What can I say? I was born in 1966--the same year that TOS premiered--so it was innevitable that I'd be a trekkie! TOS will always be a classic, but I'm especially drawn to DS9 because it, like me, is considered the weird kid of the family! I'm here because I'm desperate for any contact with other Trek fans, or fans of SF in general. I also hope to maybe meet a nice Orion Slave Girl or Borg Babe. BTW: I'm a vent-dependent quadraplegic with SMA. No big deal.

I've added the cover to my latest book, Suka: A Paul Murdock Novel. All are available at authorhouse.com

End of Phase 1

Finished the 1st draft of my new science fiction novel on Thursday. Still a long way to go, but after working on it for over a year, it feels GREAT to have reached this point. So break out the Saurian brandy & lock up your daughters, 'cause I'm celebrating!

Top 5 Movies of 2013, In my opinion

5 Bullet To The Head: Not science fiction or fantasy, but since it’s based on a graphic novel, it just barely qualifies to be on this list. It’s the sort of gritty, nasty, pulpy crime story that I’ve always loved. It also proves something that I’ve always known. Stallone and I might be getting a little long in the tooth, but we’ve still got it.

Hi Mike, I'm sorry I've been away for awhile. I had some stuff going on that got a little distracting. How are you? To answer your previous question I think the DS9 episode you mentioned is also one of my favorites. It's one of several that always makes me cry.
At 7:10am on January 6, 2014, Trekscribbler (aka Ed) said…

Mike, you are a scholar AND a gentleman.  Many thanks to you for your kind words.  And Happy New Year right back at ya!

At 8:15pm on December 2, 2013, Trekscribbler (aka Ed) said…

Hmm.  Is that just the cover?  Was this an ebook cover?  I know that what I'm working on is a full wraparound, and the first time I uploaded it the dimensions they had originally provided to me didn't work.  That's what I'm in the process of re-formatting to some new specs, and (hopefully) it'll all work out when I get back to it.

As for 'would it pique my interest'?  Yes, it damn well would.  The backdrop I'd probably lower a shade or two just to bring out the 'noir' quality of it all, but, yeppers, you put a bad@ss with a gun on any cover, and I'm moderately piqued.

At 4:26pm on December 2, 2013, Trekscribbler (aka Ed) said…

Urgh.  Sorry, dude.  I don't have any advice.  I know that with the only one that I've uploaded I created the cover myself using the specific dimensions that they said I would need for it.  With my self-published novel, I had to download their template b/c (yes) they said the dimensions I had used were not correct for how it would lay-out in printed format.  To be honest, though, I haven't even looked at it -- I'm shooting for a publication date in February as of right now, so I'm just procrastinating.  Did the error message say anything more specific?

At 9:05am on November 17, 2013, Bonnie Munroe said…
I know it's been said before but part of the brilliance of the show is the stories being so well written (most of the time) you can look past the cheesy scenery and special effects. So what's your favorite DS9 episode?
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I did have a good day.
At 3:18pm on November 5, 2013, Bonnie Munroe said…
Hi Mike, My favorite TOS episode is probably "Devil in the Dark". DS9 is a very close second as far as my favorite series. So many good episodes.
Thanks for the compliment about my dog. She's a sweetie.

Hey MIKE cheers for your message. I just thought I hadn't been here in quite some time -- it's great to see that the place can still be a little lively sometimes.

At 2:57am on August 3, 2013, Trekscribbler (aka Ed) said…

And thanks for your kind words on my humble li'l work, dude.  Lemmeknow if you pen a review.  I'd appreciate the support!

Yes, let's discuss it.  I saw it in IMAX/3D.  You are probably enjoying the movie and your chocolates as I write this!

Where Do the Vulcans Go From Here?

JJ Abrams has made many, many changes to the Star Trek we know and love. Some of them have been great, innovative, and some of them not so good.  I was unsure about seeing the first film, but went because I have a dear older friend who desired my company. I have to say on the whole I was pleasantly surprised with Star Trek XI. I was enjoying it, for the most part. And then got the body-slam of first Vulcan exploding and then Spock's mother dying.  It took a little bit for my head to catch up…See More
