November 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

An all-new franchise is born when on this day back in 1963 the legendary BBC sci-fi program Doctor Who began with the airing of its first episode ever, titled "An Unearthly Child."  26 seasons later (in 1989), the Doctor would end only the first of his runs;…

November 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Well, unless something super-wild-unpredictable happens, I guess Star Trek: First Contact -- released on this day back in 1996 -- will remain my favorite of the Next Generation series of movies.  I wasn't as thrilled with it as most Trekkies,…

November 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Dr. Bashir was always a bit of an odd duck to me.  When he first showed up on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, he was kinda/sorta ... well ... loopy, for lack of a better word.  I'd read somewheres that producers had initially intended his sexuality…

November 20: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Ladies in the sci-fi universe mustn't only be sexy to survive ... they gotta be tough.

And being brainy sure doesn't hurt.  Those are all of the distinct vibes given off my actress Ming-Na Wen, which is what made…

November 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Big day in the history of Star Trek in particular, readers, as November 19th serves up not one but two significant birthdays in its universe (along with a few other lesser ones, as well).

Born on this day in 1953, Robert…

The Star Trek Wars

I'm on the Facebook and I follow a certain group on there called Starfleet Academy. If you are unfamiliar with this group they write about topics and events, in a news format, that happen in our universe and place it in the Star Trek Universe. A basic example would be Pearl Harbor would be a Starbase destroyed. It isn't the grand exploration of the starship Enterprise or the ambassador of the week stories the television show but more of a other things happen besides what happens on the show.…

November 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Well, well, well ... impressive indeed!  On this day in 1994, the past meant the present in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's debut motion picture, Star Trek: Generations, which saw the venerable Capt. James T. Kirk meeting his demise in an act of bravery that saved everyone…

November 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day back in 1990, Wesley Crusher kinda/sorta did the unthinkable: he grew up!  "Final Mission" saw the ensign and Capt. Picard shipwrecked on a desert planet, and the…

November 16: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Because of my various interests -- science fiction, aliens, conspiracies, etc. -- Close Encounters of the Third Kind is one of those films that really ought to resonate with me more than what it does, and for the life of me I couldn't…

November 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The Tholians made their grand entrance into Trekdom when, on this day in 1968, "The Tholian Web" premiered on NBC.  The story pitted the crew of the Enterprise -- less Capt. Kirk, whom they believe to be missing-in-action -- against the dastardly aliens intent on snaring the starship in a huge…

November 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Those dastardly Ferengi are up to no good in "The Battle," an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that premiered on this day back in 1987.  The story pitted Capt. Picard against his Ferengi counterpart seeking vengeance for a battle that happened years…

November 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I take a lot of heat when I tell fans that I never much cared for Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan during her stint on STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.  It isn't that I didn't care for Whoopi; it's just that Guinan's character always felt too incidental -- a bit of a convenient…

November 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Rom always was a bit of a doofus ... but a lovable one, at that.  And who wouldn't celebrate his finally scoring the lovely Leeta, the Dabo Girl, to be his very own?  Max Grodenchik must've had an awful lot of fun under all of that make-up; the…

November 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The late actor Vincent Schiavelli certainly had a charm all of his own, and that's largely why Tinseltown saw to it that he appeared in well over one hundred film and TV projects.  During Star Trek: The Next Generation's run, Schiavelli even had a guest spot; he…

November 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1966, Star Trek's Enterprise came face-to-face (ahem) with an alien ship hell bent of destroying them for actions they had taken against its probe in the episode titled "The Corbomite Manuever."…

November 9: On This Day In Science Fiction History

This is my total geek moment confession: my wife and I had the good fortune of attending one of the first conventions Robert Duncan McNeill of Star Trek: Voyager fame headlined many years back.  When it came to the Q&A, I…

November 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Oh, what's a Buck to do?  Capt. Buck Rogers was almost willing to do anything to save the Earth, but turnabout is fair play when he's forced to submit himself as property for an auction in his first season adventure, "Planet of the…

November 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Director Paul Verhoeven has a pretty solid track record when it comes to putting together some top notch sci-fi flicks.  He did Robocop.  He did Total Recall (the Schwarzenegger version).  And, on this day in 1997, he served up his…
