October 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

You don't more SciFi pulpy than what you get when you open the pages of a Green Lantern comic book.  The saga of Hal Jordan, the original 'guardian' of Sector 2814, finally graced the big screen in 2011's awfully tepid Green Lantern movie starring this man, Ryan…

October 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Jeff Goldblum has always done some interesting work.  He captivated audiences as the scientist slowly losing his mind -- but not his humanity -- in David Cronenberg's remake of The Fly; and he walked us through the paces of Chaos Theory in Steven…

October 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Well, there you go, kids.  The image may not mean much to you, so go and ask your parents because THAT's what sci-fi looked like before Star Wars came along and changed the face of it.  Damnation Alley was released on this day back…

October 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Oh, man.  I love this movie.  The Hidden premiered on this day theatrically back in 1987.  Kyle McLachlan stars as this cop with a secret (he's an alien!), and he's pursuing a body-switching sociopath from across the cosmos.  Plus, Claudia Christian…

October 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Trust me when I tell you this, kids: disaster movies never go out of style.  Especially when they're sci-fi themed.  Exhibit A: Meteor, which premiered theatrically on this day in 1979.  It starred Natalie Wood, Sean Connery, and Karl Malden, who all stood around watching our…

October 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I had the good fortune to happen across Safety Not Guaranteed when a video distributor sent one to me, asking if I'd be so kind as to pen an online review for it.  I put what promised to be a "time travel romantic comedy" in the machine not knowing what to expect, and I ended up…

October 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

You can think what you want, but, so far as I'm concerned, the Ferengi were born on this day back in 1987 when Star Trek: The Next Generation's episode "The Last Outpost" aired in syndication.  It was our first introduction to those…

October 16: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Veteran character actor Barry Corbin played General Beringer in 1983's War Games, a wonderful cautionary tale that mixes light sci-fi with Cold War themes.  To be perfectly frank, Corbin got the best line in the whole flick: he was asked about what steps would be…

October 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Mark Lenard was Star Trek for a whole group of original Trek enthusiasts.  He played the Romulan captain who matched wits with Captain Kirk in "Balance of Terror."  He played Sarek -- the father of Spock -- in "Journey to Babel."  Then, when Star Trek - The Motion Picture…

Please forgive the commercial, but a guy asked to make a living!

Greetings, shipmates! I know I'm not around here as much as I'd like to be, but one of the reasons is that I'm devoting more and more of my time to my writing. This is my latest effort. It's only in the last year that I've taken a shot at writing poetry. I've never really been all that big a fan of this particular type of writing as a reader, but as a writer, I have to admit that it's challenging to try to get across an idea with only the bare minimum of words.

I hope that you'll give…

October 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Anyone who knows William Shatner knows William Shatner likes to keep an awful lot of irons in the fire.

One of his many irons was a little sci-fi property called Tekwar.  The show starred Greg Evigan (shown above alongside Bill) as Jack Cardigan, a cop in…

October 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Ah, what lovely ladies!  Or should I say "Mudd's Women"?  The Starship Enterprise damages its energy converter, so Kirk is in the market for some new parts when Harcourt Fenton Mudd throws the captain a curve ball.  This Star Trek episode…

October 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've no doubt that you won't recognize the face.  Furthermore, I've no doubt, you won't recognize the name!  But -- once more -- let me share with you my unabashed love for Science Fiction.

Lock Martin was born on this day back in 1916.  His singular claim to fame was that…

October 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I loved the character of Aeryn Sun on Farscape.  She had such a curious background -- trained as a Peacekeeper -- that always stood in her way when trying to make peace with the other crewmembers aboard Moya whom she adopted as her shipmates, and that made for some quality storytelling,…

FINALLY! Someone Inside the Industry Has The Guts To Speak About JJ Abrams' Star Trek Universe

As Star Trek enthusiasts, we all have our respective opinions on the franchise, the state of it, the persuasive and enduring power of the TV series and films, and so on and so forth.  Like so many, I've not been all that 'kind' to the JJ Abrams version of our beloved universe.  Oh, as I've said over and over, I…

October 9: On This Day In Science Fiction History

While I'm admittedly no fan of Star Trek: Enterprise -- I thought it had only a handful of truly solid ideas, and I loved the period it was set in -- I've got nothing but respect for Scott Bakula.  I think everyone loved his work on Quantum…

October 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It's hard to describe the journey of Ellen Ripley in the Alien saga and not be totally bowled over by the acting of Sigourney Weaver.  It started small -- she was just another crewmember on a salvage ship -- and then it ended (so far as we know) with her death and eventual cloning in…

Introduction

Hi everyone!

I don't know who's going to read this, but thanks for letting me join your group. I have no idea how big this place is, but it seemed like a good place to make some Star Trek friends since I don't have very many in real life. I am 24 years old and I live in central Canada, I've been into Star Trek for about a year now.

I would have started watching it a lot sooner if I had listened to my fiance when we first started dating four years ago. He said it…

October 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Aaron Ashmore -- born on this day in 1979 -- has made quite a name for himself on the Boob Tube (as the TV is affectionately called).  He's appeared as a series regular in such programs as Smallville and Warehouse 13.  For the ladies, I'm sure there's no mistaking…
