I’ve been getting more and more in to extended universe stories for various universes I love, especially the Doctor Who universe, but this graphic novel was one of my first I’ve read since middle school, and it’s combination of two episodes universes was well worth the read: Assimilation2 combines my favorite Doctor of the Doctor Who universe with arguably the best Star Trek universe: TNG. Are you ready to engage?
Greetings, Evil Geeks! First off, let me say what a pleasure it is to be posting on this blog. As some of you know, I’ve been on here before, first as the subject of a book review from Arthur Harkness for my space opera, Mako, then more recently as a guest on the Transmissions from the Evil Lair podcast. Suffice it to say, I always have fun here. So when C-Mart and the crew accepted my pitch for a guest post, I jumped at the chance to re-enter their playhouse.
All righty then. *slaps hands together Miyagi-style* Let’s light this powder keg, shall we?
Time to play catch up in the final frontier. Being such a self-proclaimed science fiction aficionado it’s only fair that I make it through all the Star Trek series, and I have been making it so with the TNG part of the franchise. I’ve got my tips on the best episodes of Seasons 2 and 3 for you, as well as the ones I wish I had skipped.
Greetings geeks, I’m super stoked about this Doctober month. Being a doctor myself there are so many people I both admire and loathe for their medical prowess. So I’ll be sure to spotlight several doctors this month, and let you know what I love and hate about them. I’m going to try to focus on medical doctors, since I have the most in common with then (as opposed to the PhD variety).
Now that I’ve finally left the sexist and oppressive visions that the 1960’s had for future space travel, I can move on to the rigid and unrealistic views encountered in the 1980’s. I shouldn’t be that harsh, considering Roddenberry did indeed have very advanced notions for the show, but I am beginning to wonder if being a Trekkie means enjoying a science fiction oriented soap opera. Yet there were some more enduring and enjoyable themes in this series when compared to the original. So far I would say I enjoy it significantly more than the original. This time I’ve decided to delve in to that taking an episode by episode approach, so that you might be able to pick and choose which episodes you want to watch in the future.
Hello again geeks, today is a good day for me with regards to the Star Trek universe. Today I write the last review of the original six movies. This means I have successfully made it through The Original Series, and I am just as happy to be leaving them behind as I am to be heading towards The Next Generation. Here’s my review of the last of the original six movies, as well as a bonus summary of how I felt about all the movies.
