Well. It is finally finished.
I have thrown a few tidbits around over the last year or so, but finally the Wolverine Studios & Machinima Star Trek Technical Manual is finished.
Well, finished enough to copyright anyway.
I still have some clean up to do before I consider publishing.
In case anyone is wondering, the Tech Manual is a compilation of all the notes and research I have done over the years while writing a few screenplays; wondering exactly how this bit of…

STARGATE: SG-1 was one of those series that just never did anything for me. I have seen most of its first season, and most of the plots, characters, and situations seemed a bit too saccharin for me. Still, I can respect any franchise that makes a foothold in the entertainment industry and has…Continue
On this day in 1981, BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY continued exploring strange new worlds when it aired "The Crystals." Here's the summary from IMDB.com: "Buck Rogers visits the planet Phibocetes with a landing party, hoping to gather some thurbidian crystals to power the Searcher. Though the planet is…Continue

Love him or hate him, Paul W.S. Anderson has had an awful lot of time to tinker in the various franchises of sci-fi filmdom. He's contributed to the RESIDENT EVIL property, as well as ALIENS VS. PREDATOR, and still managed to find the time to pony up something called PANDORUM (saw it, wasn't that…Continue

He may be gone, but he can never be forgotten. Ain't that the truth? Our beloved Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott! He was played by the legendary James Doohan (shown above from STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's episode "Relics" alongside Levar Burton), who came into our plane of existence on…Continue
March 2 marks the birthday of everyone's favorite personal physician, Dr. Beverly Crusher, better known as Gates McFadden! She served with distinction aboard the Enterprise-D, and the ship was a safer place knowing that she was there. Another year wiser, another…Continue

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…Continue
"The Cloud Minders" aired on February 28, 1969. Here's the episode summary from IMDB.com: "Kirk and Spock are caught up in a revolution on a planet where intellectuals and artists live on a utopian city in the sky while the rest of the population toils in mines on the barren surface…Continue

Who's up for a little dabo? No? Then how about the best Dabo Girl in all the universe? The always stunningly lovely Chase Masterson turns another year wiser today. Make sure to think good, clean, and pure thoughts on her behalf!…Continue

My attempts at this challenge. Some are better than others, naturally.

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),…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…Continue
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.
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…Continue
Were I being brutally honest with you, I'd confess that there's nothing I honestly love more as part of any sci-fi franchise than a great villain. Darth Vader. Khan. Scorpius. For all of its creative blemishes (and it had plenty), STAR TREK: VOYAGER did have a fairly grand villain ... only, for my…Continue
Fox TV's single season sci-fi epic SPACE: ABOVE & BEYOND put a handful of unknowns (or lesser faces) on the boob tube fighting the good fight against an alien species for their very survival. It was quite good, as those of us who watched it faithfully…Continue
I've been working on my new mobile app idea. That's all I'll say for now.
