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…

February 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

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…

Casting Call from Executive Producer Randy Landers. Pelham, Alabama!

On February 21st, from 1pm - 4pm CST, I would like to meet with folks from the Birmingham area interested in participating as CAST members for both of Project: Potemkin's newest productions: Starship Tristan, Starship Deimos. The meeting will take place at the new studio in the north part of Pelham, Alabama, right off US-31. (Location will be sent via email a couple of weeks before the date.)

We will be discussing the roles available, costumes, makeup, etc. I will be…

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 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1981, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century premiered "The Golden Man."  In it, Rogers and Hawk discover a life pod adrift in an asteroid belt containing a young golden boy with the curious ability to alter the composition of metals.…

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.…

February 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Welcome to February 17th ... the day many Trek fans truly credit Star Trek: The Next Generation for becoming something special!  On this day back in 1990, the ultimate-super-fantastic episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" aired in TV…

Back from Tholian Space

Greetings,



Yeah, I know that I've been missing in action for quite a few months now. I've had a lot of personal nonsense going on that I won't bore you with, as well as being preoccupied with work, which I WILL tell you about in the weeks to come. Another thing that I'd like to mention is that the more I look back on Star Trek: Into Darkness, the more I realize that that movie sucked, big time. At first, I was just so desperate to see any new Star Trek that I was willing to overlook…

February 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Imagine getting a guest spot on Star Trek: The Next Generation; then, imagine that your guest spot changed history.

That's essentially what happened for veteran character Christopher McDonald when he signed up for a single-episode commitment known as "Yesterday's…

February 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Seriously, is there anyone who's favorite Cardassian aboard Star Trek: Deep Space Nine wasn't Garak?  As played by the legendary character actor, Andrew Robinson, the duplicitous Garak came alive.  You never knew if he was half…

February 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

There are some episodes of Trek that I find easy to watch over and over and over again while still somehow managing to find something I missed before, and Star Trek: The Next Generation's sixth season outing, "Tapestry," is one such event.  There are just…

February 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Veteran TV actor Lorne Greene brought a tremendous amount of gravitas to the role of Commander Adama, the leader of the Colonial Fleet on the original Battlestar Galactica.  The man always had to balance out the needs of family against the demands of leadership, and the…

February 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It's arguably one of Star Trek: The Next Generation's best episodes -- as I think most Trek fans agree -- and the second season outing titled "The Measure of a Man" premiered in TV syndication on this date back in 1989.  The story saw Data…
