Comparison of Various Sci-Fi Ships

Take a look at this video showing size comparisons between some 80 different ships from various sci-fi series — mainly from movies, but also from games and books as well. I was actually surprised to see a few, such as White Base from Gundam, Götterdämmerung from Iron Sky, the Red...

Weird Al’s “We’re All Doomed!”

CNN host Jake Tapper called the first 2020 Presidential Debate “A hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.” And he wasn’t wrong. Personally, I could barely watch the debate, and had to take it in small doses just to get through the highlights. However, the ever-brilliant “Weird...

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

Alex Kurtzman, who’s presently in charge of new Star Trek projects, says that the upcoming new Star Trek series, Strange New Worlds, will return to its roots, with episodic “planet-of-the-week” stories and the bright optimism for the future that made The Original Series so endearing (and enduring).
