April 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The prissy Brit James McAvoy may not think much of America or Americans, but he's still happy to appear as part of an American franchise as powerful as the X-Men.  He headlined X-Men: First Class, a rowdy 60's inspired origins film for Charles Xavier and his band…

April 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Most folks around these parts know him as Captain Hikaru Sulu, but to everyone else he's nothing more than good ol' George Takei.  He's been a lovable goodwill ambassador for so many years that he's been associated to our beloved franchise, and I'm…

April 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Hayden Christensen was given the unforgivable task of playing Darth Vader during his "Wonder Years."  For better or for worse, he did the best he could with his skills and the limitations of the material.  I know folks who don't even consider the Star Wars Prequel…

April 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1938, sci-fi and superhero history were made when what is accepted as the very first appearance of the Last Son of Krypton himself -- Kal-El -- came to fruition.  Yes, it was cover-dated as June, 1938, but everyone knows that comics street much earlier than what they…

April 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Wrestling veteran Roddy Piper tried to take the 'Arnold Schwarzenegger' route into filmdom by securing himself a couple of sci-fi flicks as starring vehicles.  Unfortunately, They Live! and Hell Comes To Frogtown were too low budget (though interesting…

April 16: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Now, don't hate me folks when I say that, in my humble opinion, there's an awful lot of stuff about STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's first season that is highly forgettable.  That's the case with far more shows than just those which are part of our franchise.  Still, if you watch closely, every now…

April 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The actor who played Charlie X on Star Trek grows another year older as Robert Walker Jr (1940) celebrates a birthday today.  His episode was actually one of the first ones I remember seeing; that's not necessarily a surprise, but…

April 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

When I was a kid, one of the coolest things I could find on the TV dial was Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds (and, no, I'm not speaking about that God-awful Bill Paxton reboot movie that only had the cajones to features the Tracy Family as secondary characters).  It had enough action &…

April 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Ron Perlman is just a legendary guy.  He's been Hellboy, after all.  Plus, he's guest starred in a whole host of terrific genre projects, including the oft-maligned Star Trek: Nemesis.  Today, Mr. Perlman celebrates…

April 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Even with its modest ruminations and commentary on the state of mankind's demise, Mad Max is at best little more than a revenge picture set with a mild sci-fi premise.  It premiered theatrically on this day in 1979 in…

April 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

While the Buster Crabbe version of Buck Rogers may not be everyone's cup of tea, it definitely deserves celebrating.  Those early serials served as the inspiration for so, so many of sci-fi's greatest storytellers that they should be rediscovered with each new generation of children or sci-fi…

April 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've taken an awful lot of flack over the years for being a big supporter of the 1980 cheesy interpretation of Flash Gordon.  What can I say?  I know what I like, and I like Flash's insufferable goofiness.  It works for me on so many levels.  In…

April 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've mentioned before that I wasn't one of the many fans who went gaga over all things new-fangled Battlestar Galactica.  When all is said and done, I do still prefer the simplicity of the original over Ron…

During his stint on our plane of existence, Stan Winston did many things to establish the 'street cred' of science fiction films, but his single greatest contribution -- so far as this sci fi…

April 6: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Within all of human history, there are benchmarks, and there are hallmarks.

 

“Benchmarks” indicate a high-water mark – a new zenith, a new line drawn in the sand for others to meet or cross – while “hallmarks” are achievements…

My old Captain, Valerie Case, of USSGeneRoddenberry

Wow, this photo brings back memories. I recently watched a few stories on Star Trek and discovered a good friend back in the day. I discovered this photo from Star Trek Story from BBC (https://youtu.be/Tk3ECOIqTw0). Now, It has been years since I have seen…

April 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine gave a good handful of actors the chance to play some monumental 'baddies' in the shape of the Cardassians, and Casey Biggs certainly rose to the challenge.  He gave his character Damar the chance to go from bad to kinda/sorta good as he led the…

"I still need to actually watch Ent's S4.  It's bucket-listed for now. But, yeah, as much as I thought The Lone Gunmen were great characters for The X-Files, I just didn't see them strong enough to support their own programming.…"
