Searching for Spock, and the issue of recasting…

News broke earlier this week that “Star Trek Discovery” has recast the role of “Spock” yet again, and the actor they’ve chosen is Ethan Peck (grandson of legendary actor Gregory Peck).  This isn’t the first time “Star Trek: Discovery” has recast a previously established role for the new series. Mark Lenard was the original actor to play…

Star Trek at Las Vegas, day 3: Keep on trekking…

As the familiar narrative voice of the late Majel Barrett Roddenberry might say, “Last time on Star Trek, Last Vegas…” Star Trek Las Vegas, Day One: August 1st, 2018… Star Trek at Las Vegas, Day Two: August 2nd, 2018… Day three of the annual Star Trek convention in Las Vegas was a day for revisiting…

SyFy cancels “The Expanse,” and the grieving begins…

I’ll admit; I’m a Johnny-come-lately to “The Expanse” party, and I’ve not read the books yet, either.  But I’m a sincere, devoted and passionate fan of this TV series, and it has filled the hole in my heart that’s existed ever since reimagined “Battlestar Galactica” ended its run in 2009…a hole that even BSG’s spinoff…

Gallifrey One, Day Two: The Doctors will see you now…

The second day of our stay at the annual “Gallifrey One” Doctor Who convention in L.A. was nicely eventful. Started off the day by getting into my “Stone Trek” Fred Flintstone/Star Trek mashup cosplay.  Though Gallifrey One is primarily a Doctor Who convention, I’d seen other Star Trek cosplayers in attendance the previous night, so…

The issue of Star Trek and its continuity….

Since the debut of the CBS-All Access series “Star Trek Discovery,” I’ve read a lot of concerns on Twitter and message boards with some Trek fans having a hard time reconciling the various inconsistencies within the 51 year canon of Star Trek lore.   In particular, the new series is drawing ire from fans who…

“Star Trek Continues” finishes the original five-year mission…

“Star Trek Continues” is, quite literally, the continuation of the prematurely cancelled original series (1966-69); and this non-profit, made-for-love-of-the-game series meticulously recreates the sets, props, lighting and even hairstyles of the original series.  The episodes are even framed in the older standard aperture of 4:3; the television standard at the time of the original series’ production….

Vegas Star Trek 2: The Wrap-up of Con

Well, the annual Vegas Star Trek convention for 2017 ended Sunday, and I got home early Monday morning; and while I meant to file this one a day or so ago, life stuff happened (lots of little things that needed attention seemingly snowballed into a big pile of things to do once I got home)….

WonderCon Recap Day 3: Last Day…

As they used to say on multi-part TV shows, ‘First, some scenes from Part One…’ WonderCon Recap Day One 3/31/17 ‘…and here are scenes from Part 2…’ WonderCon recap, Day Two: 4/1/17 ‘…and now, the exciting finale of WonderCon 2017 in Anaheim!’ WonderCon 2017 Day 3 was a bit more relaxed (okay, I may have…

WonderCon recap, Day Two: 4/1/17

I begin this recap assuming you (my faithful 3-4 readers!) have already seen the Day One recap, so here goes: Day Two of WonderCon Anaheim was less eventful but no less personally satisfying. I decided to cosplay as Fred Flintstone for the entire day since I kind of half-assed it on Friday (by changing into…
