May 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1992, Ripley went further than she'd ever gone before in her struggle against the aliens menacing her and our galaxy when Alien 3 premiered in theatres.  True, audiences weren't exactly won over by this latest, more existential struggle…

May 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

May 21, 1980.  It's a date that'll live in infamy of its own sorts.  That's the date when STAR WARS: EPISODE V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK rocked the world of fandom to its core.  That's when sci-fi fans learned a secret that no one saw coming, and it changed the way we looked at George…

May 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I have absolutely no problem admitting my love for some of the cheesiest sci-fi movies ever made, and -- in that spirit -- I know that Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone is not a very good movie.  That, however,…

May 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

George Lucas brought his Prequel Trilogy to its tragic close when Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith finally showed audiences what exactly went down when Jedi Master Anakin Skywalker embraced his inner demons and took the path to the Dark Side of the Force.  (You know that…

May 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've said it before: I never really got Babylon 5.  It's all well and good -- I just wasn't really engaged that much by the characters, so their respective arcs just didn't resonate.  But the one I did admire was G'Kar who was played by the late Andreas Katsulas.  Katsulas…

May 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Veteran character actor Bill Paxton practically stole the show out from under the Aliens (1986).  His foul-mouthed Prvt. Hudson never let a moment of stress pass by without a smart remark, and he even went down fighting in the end.  Great role for the man!  Also, he revised his…

May 16: On This Day in Science Fiction History

Wow.  Disney's John Carter really took a critical drubbing.  Also, fandom didn't exactly embrace it.  I think there's been an awful lot written about how one of the most respected and legendary myths of the modern age -- one that's inspired a score of writers, filmmakers, and other…

May 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

As I so often malign in this daily feature of mine, you young whippersnappers don't know how good you have it today what with a billion TV channels and countless hours of internet-based programming available to you.  Back in the 1960's and '70's, all we had was what we could find on the boob tube, and…

May 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

  • A visionary for seeing the future of filmmaking;
  • A genius for creating a franchise custom-made for toys;…

May 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 2005, the grand experiment that was, first, Enterprise and then Star Trek: Enterprise came to its dubious end with the airing of "These Are The Voyages," what proved to be the series finale to that last Star Trek TV series…

May 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've written before about the greatness of Babylon 5 just being beyond me -- out of my reach, as it were.  The program just never hooked me the way it did others, but I can appreciate a job well done, especially when that job well done involves another foray into quality science fiction.  As…

May 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Even the show's boytoy, Felix, started to muscle in on some action when on this day in 2013 ORPHAN BLACK aired the seventh episode of its inaugural season.  It was called "Parts Developed In An Unusual Manner," and here's the episode summary from IMDB.com: "With Paul…

May 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day back in 2001, Paramount made it official: they announced that the next TV incarnation of Gene Roddenberry's beloved franchise would be known only as ENTERPRISE.

From what I understand and recall,…

Cancer Fundraiser

Please people, I am in pretty dire times. Have cancer and could really use some help. Please see the fundraiser at the hot link below. Also, it seems people are hesitant to give, and I understand, there are a lot of hurting and desperate people these days, so a thought occurred to me. If someone had something they could donate to my cause that could be raffled, that also could be very useful.

May 9: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you're never seen the phenomenal SOYLENT GREEN (spoilers: it's people, you know), then stop what you're doing right now and head out to your local rental store or, better yet, purchase yourself a copy.  On this day back in 1973, it premiered in theatres,…

May 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE got a lot of things "right," but, so far as I've always been concerned, the slickest decision they ever made was having a main cast regular -- Odo -- actually serving as part of a race intent upon taking over the galaxy.  It was a delightful surprise that no one saw coming, and…

May 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I guess it's one thing to have a small part in a pretty big film ... but it's another thing entirely to have a small part that's remembered for, possibly, many generations.  That's what happened for the young Carrie Henn, who was cast as 'Newt' in the…

May 6: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Cinema legend Orson Welles did an awful lot -- with a single event -- to help put science fiction on the map: as the Halloween episode for The Mercury Theatre on the Air back in 1938, Welles staged a…

May 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've kinda/sorta told this story before around these parts, but I thought it entirely appropriate to mention once more.  I had the good fortune of meeting Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's resident Cardassian villain -- Gul Dukat -- in Las Vegas at Creation Entertainment's 2013 big Trek…
