September 1: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I find it nothing short of amazing that Ray Bradbury -- of all people -- would credit Edgar Rice Burroughs as being, bar none, the single most influential writer of the 20th Century; and that's quite probably because almost every artist, every filmmaker, every storyteller…

August 31: On This Day In Science Fiction History

What?  You say you've never seen Returner?  Well, I can't say as I'd be all that surprised.  It's a Japanese time travel flick -- pretty cool, if I don't say so myself -- that opened over there on this day back in 2002.  It's a lot of flash and glam, that…

What I've Been Up To

Hey shipmates, 

Yeah, I haven't been around much lately, sorry about that. There's been a lot of personal nonsense going on that I won't go into; I come to Trekspace to take a break from sh** like that. Once the dust settles (I hope), I'll be here so much that you'll get sick of me! 



On a cheerier note, I've also been busy writing the 3rd entry in my Paul Murdock thriller series, and it is now available on Kindle! This is the first time I ever wrote a novella, rather than a…

August 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Not all that many people heard about so much as watched Roughnecks: The Starship Trooper Chronicles when it premiered in 1999.  Its inspiration -- the theatrical Starship Troopers -- was kinda/sorta split in…

August 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you missed CBS's sci-fi series Threshold (from the 2005-2006 season), then you missed some of Carla Gugino's best work.  As Dr. Molly Anne Caffrey, she was tasked with heading up a team of experts trying to unravel one of the most unusual…

August 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

As I've oft mentioned, I was never much a fan of Stargate: SG-1 ... but I'm always a fan of hot blondes!  Is there a hotter blonde in all of the STARGATE universe than Amanda Tapping?  I don't think so.  After she hung up her STARGATE fatigues, she…

August 27: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Birthday wishes today go out to producer Dean Devlin.  In his line of work, he was responsible for bringing to life the Stargate franchise when, back in 1994, he and his partners premiered the Kurt Russell / James Spader original movie.  He's also…

August 26: On This Day In Science Fiction History

One could debate the strengths and weaknesses of the JJ Abrams' Star Trek films for, quite probably, the length of an entire film.  God knows fans have, and God knows they'll continue to do so in the days, months, and years ahead of us.  One point I've always tried to make is that, despite what…

August 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've written of my fondness for The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951) many times, and, no doubt, I will again.  In fact, I will any chance I get.  As a young one, it was one of the first truly spectacular science fiction films I can remember watching on television, and I always loved…

August 24: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I hate to sound crass, but I'd be perfectly alright if some scientists wanted to shrink the lovely Raquel Welch to miniscule size and inject her inside me.  No problem at all!  That's part and parcel of the premise at work in Fantastic Voyage, which…

August 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

When it came to Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Ray Park had a tough job.  He was cast to play the (sadly) one-off villain, Darth Maul, against Jedi veteran Qui Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson).  Fortunately, he at least got to kill…

August 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you've never read anything by Ray Bradbury, well ... then ... for starters ... shame on you!  Stop what you're doing right now, and get out to your local bookstore or library.  At the very least, every science fiction fan should read "The Martian Chronicles."  (I recently got after my…

August 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Kim Cattrall did a pretty impressive job stepping into the Trek franchise as Valeris, a Spock protege who served as his 'foil' in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.  Fans embraced the character, likening her back to The…

August 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

John Noble did a terrific turn in the world of sci fi when he took the role of Dr. Walter Bishop in JJ Abrams' Fringe for Fox TV.  As the sometimes whacked out mad scientist hell bent on saving the world, Noble certainly played as the intellect…

August 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Need I say anything more than simply providing a picture?  Without this man, we wouldn't have the franchise that we all know and love so well.  Gene Roddenberry was born on this day back in 1921.  Though he's no longer with us, his legacy…

August 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Sorry, but I really can't tell you much about the short-lived, apocalyptic series called Jeremiah.  The only thing I can tell you with any certainty is that (A) it was J. Michael Straczynski's idea; (B) it starred Luke Perry: and (C) it also starred The Cosby show veteran…

August 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day back in 1960, legendary director George Pal launched The Time Machine in theatres, the first big budget adaptation of the H.G. Wells' novel of the same name.  Rod Taylor took a trip through time, and -- yowza! -- he found the lovely…

August 16: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Buck Rogers was finally delivered into the 25th century on this day back in 1979 when the pilot movie -- dubbed "Awakening" for its TV broadcast -- aired to respectable ratings.  Viewers were introduced to Gil Gerard as the titular space hero, and fanboys first fell in love with Erin Gray as…

Most folks know her as Katniss Everdeen, but, to the rest of us, she's regular ol' Jennifer Lawrence, actress headlining the popular Hunger Games trilogy.  Plus, she's done a terrific turn as Mystique in the X-Men: First…

August 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Part mockumentary & part story, Neill Blomkamp's District 9 captivated audiences when it premiered on this day back in 2009.  At its heart, the film told the story of a government official caught between doing his job and doing what's best for…

"Some might argue that Frankenstein was THE 1st science fiction story ever written. Personally, I think that one could go all the way back to the story of Icarus & Daedalus, or is that too much of a stretch? "

"@Mike: You are correct, sir.  Dinklage had a good presence, but from what I remember he was all attitude with little else to do.  Good program that hinted of a great idea, just never really caught fire the way some shows do."

"You're not the only one. I thought that Threshold was an interesting take on a familiar premise; it was also nice to see Brent Spiner acting sans the Data makeup. If I remember correctly, didn't this show also feature Peter Dinklage long…"
