March 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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…

March 3: On This Day in Science Fiction History

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…

March 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

March 2 marks the birthday of everyone's favorite personal physician, Dr. Beverly Crusher, better known as Gates McFadden!  She served with distinction aboard Star Trek: The Next Generation's Enterprise-D, and the ship was a safer…

March 1: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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…

Leonard Nimoy, A Legacy for Many

When the original series first aired, I was very young, and my dad was a fan, so watching Star Trek is among my first memories. One day, I took special note of Kirk and Spock on the bridge. Kirk was the Captain ... but when Kirk needed help, he turned to Spock for the Vulcan's…

February 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

"The Cloud Minders" aired as part of Star Trek's oft-maligned third season 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…

Leonard Nimoy Passes: 1931 - 2015

It's been said that life is full of surprises.

Despite what naysayers would have you believe, we're not meant to understand all of it -- the "it" there being "life itself."  Simply put, life is.  It just is.  It is what you make of it.  It is what you put into it.  It is what you get out of…

February 27: On This Day in Science Fiction History

As I've said many times before, I never much cared for Firefly or its subsequent theatrical outing Serenity.  It was all well and good ... just not my cup of tea.  But I love the work of Adam Baldwin.  He's been a terrific…

Who's up for a little dabo?

No?

Then how about a little Dabo girl?

Maybe?

Well, how about the best damn Dabo Girl in all the known universe?  The always stunningly lovely Chase Masterson of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fame turns…

February 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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,…

February 24: On This Day in Sci Fi History

As I've mentioned many times, I was a slow convert to Syfy's updated Battlestar Galactica.  The chief problem I had with it initially was that I thought the pacing on the original miniseries was just plain awful: as it turned out, I watched it on DVD when it was released, and I…

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…

February 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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…

February 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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…

February 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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…

February 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Another day of very slim pickings from the world of science fiction, my friends.  All I could find was that, on this day in history back in the year 2000, the sleeper sci-fi hit, Pitch Black, was released to the world.  It was Diesel-powered.…
