October 31: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Director James Cameron sure knows how to make quality science fiction as he proved on this day in 1991 with the pulse-pounding, nerve-shattering, ante-upping Terminator 2: Judgment Day appeared in theatres.  The picture opened to big numbers and rave reviews, and it showed…

October 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Question: How do you make a hot chick even hotter?  Answer: simple -- give her a gun.  That's exactly what Steven Spielberg did by casting the lovely Sarah Carter in his alien invasion TV show, Falling Skies, which airs on TNT.  (They know drama, I'm told!)  Ms. Carter…

October 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Richard Dreyfuss played Roy Neary, the 'everyman' at the heart of a national mystery that took shape in the form of Steven Spielberg's 1977 blockbuster Close Encounters of the Third Kind.  Mr. Dreyfuss was born on this day back in 1947.…

Who doesn't appreciate a good visit from The Doctor?

Despite a few clunker episodes here and there, I thought that young Matt Smith's tenure as Doctor Who was respectfully solid.  I think in some ways it lacked a lot of the…

October 27: On This Day In Science Fiction History

"Collaborators" -- the fifth episode in the third season of the new-fangled Battlestar Galactica which aired on this day in 2006 -- saw the survivors of New Caprica reunited with the fleet.…

October 26: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1984, a franchise was born!  James Cameron's The Terminator stormed into theatres and introduced audiences everywhere to the potential of having a Hollywood strongman take a commanding lead in a sci-fi property.  The world met Sarah Connor and learned that her son --…

October 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Flash Gordon kinda/sorta met Buck Rogers when on this day back in 1979 the legendary screen hero Buster Crabbe came out of retirement to appear in an episode of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.  (The truth is that Buster Crabbe has actually played both Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers…

Audio Verse Awards nomination!

Nothing like waking up in a dark cloud to find some neat news waiting in my inbox. Some kind soul nominated me for Best Actor in a Fan/Adaptation Ensemble Role for Star Trek: Outpost. Seeing as how I'm up against five other righteous dudes in our cast, it's certainly an honor to have been nominated.

October 24: On This Day In Science Fiction History

That most curious creature, The Traveler, made his first appearance in all of Trekdom when Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered its first season outing, "Where No One Has Gone Before," on this day in 1987.…

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…
