Gilligan's Trek By Casey Menace

Just sit right back

And you'll hear a tale,

A tale of a fateful Trek,

The story of the Enterprise,

A star ship on a trek.

The First Officer was a Vulcan man,

The captain, a ham to go.

The Enterprise set sail that day,

For a three season show,

A three season show.

The budget started getting rough,

The trekking show was tossed.

If not for the letters of the fearless fans

The show would have been lost.

The show would have…

July 24: On This Day In Science Fiction History

For such a li'l lady, Summer Glau has certainly made an imprint on Sci-Fi.  She first dropped onto everyone's radar in Joss Whedon's Firefly series.  Then, she loaded both barrels and took charge as the signature cyborg in Terminator: The…

July 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Outside of having a memorable turn as a brief replacement captain of the Starship Enterprise-D on Star Trek: The Next Generation, actor Ronny Cox is known for his star turn in 1987's Robocop.  As the ruthless CEO for OCP, he oversaw the entirety of the…

July 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Actor Terence Stamp has enjoyed a wildly successful silver screen career, but -- without a doubt -- his most memorable role to date was as General Zod in SUPERMAN II (1980).  He chewed scenery as easy as the Man of Steel, and he matched wits with none other than Lex Luthor.  Stamp had a great opportunity to…

July 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The actress Jaime Murray first came onto my radar when I saw her in the Starz Network program for Spartacus (awesome!).  After making a splash there, Ms. Murray went over to Syfy, taking the role as the sensually duplicitous alien Stahma Tarr on Defiance.  She was born on…

July 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I seriously don't know all that much about the late Natalie Wood.  I know that the last film she appeared in was 1983's Brainstorm, a film I've tried to watch on a few occasions but have yet to successfully make it through.  I also know that there are some questions that…

July 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Let me be clear: I don't dislike the current incarnation of our beloved Star Trek franchise.  You know the one I'm talking about?  The JJ Abrams universe?  I see them as pretty good popcorn flicks, though I'll admit I do miss some of the preachyness of the original franchise films.…

July 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

"Get away from her, you b***h!"

Truer words were never uttered than on this day back in 1986 when writer/director James Cameron took us back to the future with Ellen Ripley and those pesky, acid-blooded Aliens.  It was a massively…

July 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I see a lot of movies.  I really do.  And, even with all I see, it's pretty rare for me to find one that I think is just downright perfect.  Just ask around.  Anyway, one of the rare ones is 1987's Robocop, released on this day back then.  Seriously, it…

July 16: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Inception was one of those releases that most of mankind went ga-ga over.  When my wife and I finally saw it, we thought, "Meh."  It all felt like a bloated Twilight Zone episode to us, and certainly it wasn't anything worth re-evaluating your existence…

July 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Jackie Earle Haley has certainly come a long way from his days with THE BAD NEW BEARS, and genre fans certainly have a lot to be excited about his various performances.  In 2009, he starred as Rorschach, a pivotal superhero/vigilante in WATCHMEN, and then in 2014 he starred in the big screen…

July 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Sir Patrick Stewart -- formerly known simply as Patrick Stewart -- was a bit reluctant to sign aboard the Enterprise NCC1701-D, but methinks he's glad he did.  He helped fuel a whole new generation of fans, taking his ship and crew boldly to where no one had gone…

July 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Every now and then, a genre actress comes along with a very impressive resume, and Michelle Rodriguez is certainly one such candidate.  RESIDENT EVIL.  ABC TV's LOST.  BATTLE LOS ANGELES.  And James Cameron's sci-fi epic, AVATAR.  She's certainly gotten down that rough'n'tumble look -- that jilted…

Thank goodness Serinda Swan loves to play dress-up!  She's a talented actress -- to say the least -- and she looks great in costume.  You can see her work in TRON: LEGACY, as well as her brief stint as Zatanna in the WB's SMALLVILLE.  Join me in wishing her a Happy…

July 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It may seem a bit tame or even passe by today's standards, but when ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK premiered on this day in 1981 it made a believer out of many sci-fi fans.  John Carpenter's somewhat disturbing look at the future of mankind -- specifically at the future of…

She's not just a pretty face ... but, well, at least she is that, too!  Say Happy Birthday to STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE's communications officer -- Ms. Linda Park -- as she turns another year older, wiser, and lovelier today!  Park was born on this day in…

July 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Of course, I get that "Captain Jack" might be what drew most viewers to the BBC's DOCTOR WHO spin-off, TORCHWOOD, but, for my tastes, Gwen Cooper -- as played by the lovely Eve Myles -- was always more interesting.  She was the 'humanizing' element of the program, and, as such, I could simply identify with…
