In 2011, I married the love of my life – Mr. Picard. No, not that Picard.
My parents are long-time Trekkies, though I don’t think I necessarily loved the series in the way they would have preferred. I am much more attached to the Star Wars universe (a mutual love of SW is...
Sci-fi, or science fiction, is not a big fish in French cinema. Although the country produced some critically acclaimed science fiction films such as Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville and Bertrand Tavernier’s Death Watch, most of the films shown on the French silver screen are dramas and art films. However, Paris became one of the preferred sets for some science fiction films, especially the ones that delve into cyberpunk. In a future as gritty as the cyberpunk version of Paris, the streets will be filled with popular noir elements like smoke coming out of manholes; mendicants and junkies occupying dark alleys, and constant sirens...
In the second of today’s new technology stories, it’s the exciting news that NASA have begun work on warp drive.
Perhaps a Star Trek experience within our lifetime is not such a remote possibility.”
- Dr. Harold White.
It would appear that NASA now believe that a real life-warp drive is now possible, by rejigging the energy requirements of previous hypotheses.
Dr. White’s team are working on loopholes that are believed to exist in certain mathematical equations. Such loopholes, though they may sound like nothing, may indicate that warping the fabric of space-time is...
In this week’s Clip of the Week, have a think back to Star Trek: Enterprise – namely the final scenes of Season Three’s Azati Prime.
Actually, don’t. Just give it a watch. One of my favourite Trek cliff-hangers. Considering how the season had progressed...
The latest Star Trek fan project that’s causing people to turn their heads and notice is Star Trek: Renegades. It’s the team behind Of Gods and Men, and they’ve just released their second teaser trailer featuring Walter Koenig (Chekov) and Tim Russ (Tuvok)....
I remember this airing (terrifyingly, that’s eleven years ago now) but this was a pretty funny commercial launched in the run up to Enterprise. The words Star Trek would later be dropped from the title, ironically. (Yes, I know they were re-instated during the third...
It’s time to settle this one, once and for all.
Kirk vs Luke? Khan vs Darth Vader? Wesley vs Angsty Anakin!?
Sure, we could argue over little points, but for now, let’s just ask the all encompassing, simple question. Which is better?
Star Trek, or Star Wars?
Comments and further debate are, as always, welcome!
I was watching clips of Deep Space Nine the other day, and it struck me what a brilliant array of supporting characters the show had accompanying strong leads.
So I figured I’d ask the world who their favourite character was! Personally, I have a hell of a lot of time for Weyoun. Jeffrey Combs performances were simply brilliant. It’s between him and Garak. I guess I have a thing for Machiavellian characters…
What is your favourite Deep Space Nine character?
