September 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It was on this day back in 1991 that STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION returned from its summer break, launching into its fifth season with the episode, "Redemption, Part 2."  The story brought about what I thought was a much-too-neatly-tied-up end to the…

On this day back in 1965, CBS launched into the unknown with Irwin Allen's singular sci-fi classic, Lost In Space.  The first episode, "The Reluctant Stowaway," saw the Jupiter 2 sabotaged by the nefarious Dr. Smith, who inadvertently then became a…

September 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Walter Koenig was a 'latecomer' to our Star Trek beloved franchise, and rumor has it he was brought in -- along with his Davy Jones haircut -- to help entice the younger ladies to tune in.  Thank Goodness, he came, as I can't…

September 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

An awful lot of what makes science fiction believable to audiences is the fact that ordinary actors are often times transformed into credible-looking creatures or members of an entirely fictional race of aliens such as the Vulcans or the Romulans or the Klingons.

In those early days of…

September 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

September 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I realize that many Trek enthusiasts don't have a lotta love for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, but let me tell you that, as a fan who had been clamoring back in those days for a welcome return to Gene Roddenberry's universe, I enjoyed it well enough.  Sure, the pacing was off, but it had…

Oh, that face!  That smiling, devilish face!  Jeffrey Combs did a masterful job playing the conniving Vorta -- Weyoun -- on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  I can distinctly remember hissing every time he came onscreen.  The actor has had a long career…

September 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It all began with a bang!  Erm ... zapp?  However you see things, Star Trek began for all practical purposes on this day back in 1966 when NBC aired Gene Roddenberry's second pilot, "The Man Trap."  It wasn't as cerebral as the first intended pilot, but it still ignited a fanbase…

September 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've talked with some sci-fi fans who hate-hate-hate to acknowledge that the overall history of sci-fi film and images is occasionally riddled with cheese.  The truth is that some of the most inspired if not downright crazy fun in all of SciFiDom (my word for all things sci-fi) happens to come from such…

What would Scotty do?

From everything that I saw on TOS, it was obvious that Scotty was a diehard nationalist, even in the 24th century. But if he were alive today, do you suppose he would've voted for or against Scottish independence? On the one hand, I think that he would like to see his country stand its own 2 feet, but at the same time, I think that his background in engineering would make him rational enough for him to see the benefits of remaining a part of the United Kingdom. In short, I just don't know!See More
