On this day in history from 2012, actor Avery Brooks -- better known to Trek enthusiasts as Captain Benjamin Sisko -- was arrested for a DUI in Wilton, Connecticut, after failing a sobriety test. …

January 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The first season finale of Farscape -- titled "Family Ties" -- aired on this day back in 2000, and it was really a game-changer of an episode: the crew of Moya was facing certain death from the fast approaching Peacekeepers, and the final scenes seemed to almost…

January 27: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It's one thing to get a guest starring role in Star Trek; it's another thing to get an opportunity to play one of the program's mythological figures.  That's what veteran actor James Cromwell got to do in Star Trek: First Contact, long revered to be the best of the TNG movies.  Cromwell…

January 26: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Despite it being a bad idea, the crew of the Enterprise directly and indirectly 'tinkered' in Earth's past on more than one occasion, but none was quite as memorable and downright fun as first season's "Tomorrow Is Yesterday."  This Star Trek hour saw the…

January 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On Syfy's Defiance, she runs a brothel.  Pardon my obvious sexism, but I'm guessing it's a very successful brothel.  Mia Kirshner cut her acting teeth in a whole slew of mostly forgettable minor roles, but it was her wicked transformation as the terrorist-for-hire in Fox…

January 24: On This Day In Science Fiction History

You may not know his face, but chances are you've heard his voice ... or voices!  Phil LaMarr has contributed to several sci-fi-related animation projects, from Futurama to Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  Today, he celebrates his birthday, born on this day in…

January 23: On This Day in Science Fiction History

I think you can always judge a franchise based in part on the charisma of its lead.  Shatner, Browder, and even Boxleitner come to mind, and one name I'd definitely add to that list is Gil Gerard.  In the 80's, he was the face of televised science fiction as he headlined the latest…

January 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you've never seen Cleopatra 2525, then you're missing something special.

At best, it's a cult diversion -- essentially, it features three hot chicks fighting robots hell-bent on destroying what's left of mankind in the year 2525 -- full of cheese and high camp.…

January 21: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Actress Karina Lombard is a familiar face in television who continues to turn in great performances in supporting positions.  Not long ago, she enjoyed terrific exposure as a regular in USA Networks' The 4400.  She was born on this day in 1969.…

January 20: On This Day in Science Fiction History

The late, great DeForest Kelley gave such a genius portrayal to the ship's physician, Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy.  In STAR TREK's trinity relationship -- the one shared between Kirk's bravado, Spock's logic, and him -- McCoy was always the…

January 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Another episode from Star Trek's inaugural season that kinda/sorta took TV audiences by surprise was the action/adventure "Arena," the story that pitted Kirk and his crew against an unseen menace ... that is, until much later in the program when the…

January 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I'm one of those rare few people who actually enjoyed Waterworld, but I'm also willing to admit that The Postman practically put me to sleep.  Maybe Kevin Costner's forays into sci-fi haven't been perfect, but they've been some solidly produced efforts…

January 17: On This Day in Science Fiction History

"The Mark of Gideon" presented Capt. Kirk with a curious challenge: believing to be beaming down to the surface of the planet Gideon, he finds himself aboard a completely deserted Enterprise ... well, completely deserted except for a beautiful woman, that is!  If only all Starfleet captains could be so lucky!…

Raising my daughter with the help of Star Trek

Despite how young I am (in relative terms) I am an old fan. Read that as meaning Pre-TNG fan. I enjoyed the phasers fights, space battles, and fist fights the Original Star Trek supplied. I enjoyed Star Trek like other four year olds enjoy Star Wars or He-Man or Ghostbusters at the time. The social stories that were being told went about four feet over my head. But hey Captain Kirk just drop kicked a bad guy. And it was a time that my father and I spent time together doing things…

If you were watching closely, then it was hard not to get excited about the premiere of the latest incarnation to the Trek franchise, namely Star Trek: Voyager.  After all, Voyager took Gene Roddenberry's creation, and threw it…

January 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Folks will always make fun of sci-fi from 1980's television, but, as much as they might malign or mock the second season of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, I thought the program had some nice moments.  After a mostly pulp and cheese-infused first season, writers came back with an…

The return of Trek on TV?

This is pretty nifty.  I've been following this page on Facebook for a couple years and the folks behind the movement to get Enterprise a fifth season (who run this page, including Doug Drexler) post some really interesting information about what is going on behind the scenes.  It would seem that an agreement that kept Trek off TV (so as to not interfere with the JJ movies) expires this month.  Personally, I'm eager to see what this year holds as Trek should be a TV vessel for…

On this day in 2008, The Terminator franchise took a relatively bold new direction when Fox Television premiered Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  The premise was simple -- put John Connor in high school and have his mother and he…

MAC PORT OF TREK GAMES

Hello, my name is "Captain Leroy/(Der Kunstler)" -as I am known in the development community. I am an artist and also an Apple developer in the areas of mobile app design and development. I utilize my skills in all kinds of ways. However today I want to announce that I have ported two Trek apps over to the Mac platform (Mac OSX Yosemite). I have successfully coded and made compatible the rare but popular NCC 1701. The second is Star Trek Ultimate Universe. Both programs run at 98% efficiency…See More
