Jean-Luc Picard Writes a Quarantine Starlog – A playful Star Trek ‘episode’ for troubled times

The newest Star Trek television show, called simply Picard, is not immune to the effects of the world (galaxy?) spanning quarantine.  Star Trek: Picard showrunner, writer, and director Akiva Goldsman playfully imagines what Trek would be like in the wake of social distancing and isolation. Here’s our favorite ex-captain, ex-ambassador Jean-Luc himself, drafting a Starlog […]

Comic Con 2020 is Cancelled

For the first time in 51 years, world premier event San Diego Comic Con is cancelled, due to the Viral Apocalypse. Last year I attended the 50th anniversary of the SD Comic Con, and things were in high swing. Just like it was when I attended the year before, and the year before that. I’m […]

Star Trek The Next Generation – Playing Poker with Superheroes

I always wondered at the Bridge Crew of The Next Generation of the Enterprise blithely playing poker together. Even while Data says in Cause and Effect, “The cards are sufficiently randomized” (and actually, they aren’t in this case), that doesn’t mean a thing to the senior staff of the NCC-1701-D. Half of them are superheroes, […]

Star Trek does Groundhogs Day! The Next Generation Episode: Cause and Effect

What’s strange is that this episode of Star Trek: the Next Generation does a Groundhog Day theme a year before Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day movie comes into play. While there are a lot of GHD plots in various genre and film and TV shows, I think Star Trek’s might be first. Did they get the […]

What to rewatch before Star Trek Picard

I haven’t seen the new Picard show yet, but I’m extremely excited, and according to the trailers, it picks up where the long-running (non-JJ Abrams) Star Trek TV and movie series left off… Just 20 years later. And Patrick Stewart, like the rest of us, are 20 years older. Will Star Trek: Picard, be a […]

Data Sings Scanning for Lifeforms on Star Trek Generations

I can’t get this out of my head after a Star Trek: Generations movie rewatch, so I’m putting it in yours. Data inserts his long-unused emotion chip from the Star Trek the Next Generation series. The chip has mixed audience results. But the best part, aside from an emotional reunion with Spot, is his joy […]

The Most Anticipated Science Fiction & Fantasy Shows of 2020

In a post-Endgame, post-Star Wars Saga world, I have a hole in my soul where movie anticipation used to live. I had a lot of anticipation in 2019 for the new Terminator film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Men in Black International, Zombieland 2, and Jumanji 3. All let me down in some way. They weren’t fails […]

The decade of 2010s when female protagonists said #MeToo to Science Fiction

Some of the best science fiction of the 2010s revolved around female actors as the protagonist.

Two Must See Science Fiction Spoof Film Documentaries (plus: the most ‘inconceivable’ parody of a spoof)

It’s hard to make a decent movie spoof for a beloved franchise, and being in the science fiction genre doesn’t make things any easier. The producers have to sell a fresh plot, quality special effects, and sparkling humor, while somehow keeping the fan base happy. You have to honor — while riffing– the base material. […]

Star Wars Meets Star Trek – Holdo’s Last Jedi Sacrifice is the Picard Maneuver

The coolest move in The Last Jedi depicted Admiral Holdo’s Resistance flagship making a super short hyperspace jump to destroy the First Order’s dreadnought. It’s a great tactic, if suicidal. And it worked. But if you’re a science fiction nut, you’ve seen this move before. Star Trek Remember the Picard Maneuver in Star Trek: The […]
