Star Trek Phase II : EPISODE 4 :BLOOD AND FIRE – PART 1 December 27, 2008

We’ve been excited about the Blood and Fire episode of the fan produced Star Trek Phase II series for months. It’s now available – though only if you download it (as of Dec 27, 2008 at least) without an option for a streaming web version – yet *UPDATE** It’s on YouTube we’ve linked the episodes below!!.

Yet though this episode has some of the best special effects EVER for a fan made Star Trek flick – some of the early chatter has been about the 3.5 minute homo-erotic scene. While it’s not my own particular preference – it’s fair to have this considering that the original Trek was full of its own gratuitous scenes and no one can argue that Jeri Ryan’s super-tight outfit on Voyager served any practicial purpose other than to stimulate males of all ages. (That said I wonder if the Star Trek New Voyages ppl could line up someone that would agree to a skin tight Jeri Ryan outfit...)

That small scene aside – this is an AWESOME first part of an episode that is superior to anything i’ve seen yet from Star Trek XI. Too bad this is set for the big screen. Best line – Kirk’s nephew is a ‘red’ shirt – so Scotty say – ‘Relax Jim we don’t put bullseyes on the red shirts anymore!”

 

OHH and it looks like it’s now on YouTube – so here ya go – enjoy

Who is killing everyone on the Raptor anyways?

startrekdestiny3 WOWOWOWOWOW. What a conclusion to a massively engaging series.

I thought the first book was awesome, the second book was also ridiculously incredible. But this third one – well how many more superlatives can you say about one series?

The real shocker in this book is how it pulls together the two distinct threads of the series namely the Caelier and the Borg. The way that David Mack weaves the two plots together is brilliant – though I do have some questions…

***SPOILER ALERT*** IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK STOP READING THIS REVIEW NOW***

***LAST CHANCE***

Buck Rogers Movie Coming Thanks to Frank Miller December 19, 2008

It’s not Sin to love Buck Rogers – is it?

Sin City director Frank Miller (he also did 300) is apparently set to write and direct a new movie version of Buck Rogers. I remember the 80’s TV show with Gil Gerrard fondly (remember Hawk?)

How could you not love Erin Gray’s spandex-clad Wilma Deering?

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Miller will write and direct his own big-screen take on the comic serial; while the creator has only begun to sketch ideas, it’s expected to be a darker take, with many of Miller’s signature visual elements and themes, such as corruption and redemption.

It’s likely to be a priority project for Miller, though he has been mulling a “Sin City” sequel.

Star Trek: Destiny: Book 2 Mere Mortals – AWESOME December 19, 2008

We loved Star Trek : Destiny Book 1, and Book 2 Mere Mortals continues in the same way…IT’S AWESOME.

From the first page to the last this is a gripping tale spanning the width and breadth of the Star Trek universe. 

Riker’s decision at the end of the book – WOW. And it stands in direct contrast with what Worf did with Jadzia..which i suppose was the author’s point and further proves why Riker is fit for command.

This book does seem to spend more time on the Erica Hernandez storyline than the first one – not a problem since Hernandez is such a key character in this series overall.

The writing again is superb which made this a totally engaging and enjoyable read .

Goodbye Majel Barrett Roddenberry December 18, 2008

Majel Barrett Roddenberry – wife of the Star Trek Creator, voice of Star Trek ships old and new, mother of Deanna Troy – has passed away at the age of 76.

According to reports Majel Barrett Roddenberry died Thursday of leukemia at her home in Bel-Air, Calif.

No other person has been involved with Star Trek from its inception in the 60’s all the way to 2009 and the Star Trek XI movie where Majel’s voice will be the voice of the Enterprise yet again.

While nurse chappel was cute it was as Lwaxana Troi that we think she showed her true comedic genious. Everyone that has ever seen Star Trek the Next Generation has a favorite Lwaxana Troi moment. I still crack a grin everytime i think of her calling Worf – Mr Woof.

Philip K . Dick would have been 80 today December 16, 2008

Legendary SF author Philip K. Dick would have been 80 today (were he alive). Philip Kindred Dick born December 16, 1928 died on March 2, 1982.
Our fav Philip K. Dick novel remains the Man in the High Castle, but there really are so many others that are worthy aren’t there?

Dick was different than what we were used to – and took a dark twisted look at reality that in our view has yet to be replicated in SciFi by any other author.

Robert Carlyle is the new face of Stargate Universe December 15, 2008

He’s done the Full Monty and now Robert Carlyle is set to play Dr. David Rush in the new Stargate Universe series.

It’s not clear is Carlyle will be a character in the vein of a Dr.Mckay or a col. Sheppard – though i’d suspect that he’ll be more like a Samantha Carter type – smart and not afraid to fight either.

Filming for the the Stargate Universe pilot starts in February 2009, with an eye to a summer 2009 premiere.

Sarah Connor Chronicles – Season 2 mid-season finale was TERRIBLE December 15, 2008

What the frak was that? Ok sure we said last week that Sarah Connor Chronicles was a bad show but, this was the mid-season finale this week. Some early buzz said it would be a neat episode.

Yeaah neat to see a Skynet machine (what was it an HK?) from the future but again..this show is so poorly constructed from a proper dramatic narrative flow viewpoint it’s not funny.

Instead of focusing on the ‘ship’ we see Sarah’s face for most of the time..instead of action or dialogue even this show focusses on ‘dramatic pauses of nothingness’.

There are some fine actors in this show – LET THEM ACT. As it is this show is difficult to watch and impossible to follow.

It’s in the same timeslot at Big Bang Theory – which this week by the way was a great episode…and funny in a good way.

Awesome Grievous episode – with some ridiculously cool lightsaber action –

Sure a little saad Grievous killed the Mon Cal Jedi but hey it’s Grievous and he’s got four arms.

Great to see his lair and great to see the Dooku trick too.

But perhaps the most interesting part was Fisto himself – played by a voice actor that sounded Jamaican Rastaman to me. Sure his ‘hair’ fits the bill but i never though of Fisto that way…

Considering that there are only TWO EPISODES LEFT of Stargate Atlantis – this was a really lame episode.

We’ve seen the body transfer thing a dozen or more times already – this one was not nearly as good as the SG-1 episode when Daniel Jackson and Vala got transfered – remember they almost got burned at the stake!

Still basicly good fun – it’s just we really wish that we’d get something MORE seeing as this series is capable of MORE and we’re almost done.

If I had written the final three or four episodes of Atlantis you can bet your Wraith hating soul that it would be a massively engaging four part cycle that engaged everything we all know and love about Atlantis. If the last two episodes are anything like this one – the show will go out with a whimper instead of a bang.

Doctor Who Journey’s End Edited by CBC in Canada December 13, 2008

What a joke. The CBC in Canada aired the final episode of Doctor Who season 4 (4×13) in Canada on Friday night – in a bastardized edited form that made the show impossible to watch.

The CBC editted nearly 20 minutes out of the episode which was the season finale!

There are a lot of people that are complaining about this (check out the CBC forums) .

Was the show too long? Something politically incorrect in it? Too much nudity?? What?!! Why would the CBC do such a thing? It’s just madness.

CBC is funded by the Canadian taxpayers. I suggest that all Canadian’s demand a refund.
