Foundation Series

The latest trailer for the adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy has just come out. It looks pretty good, but I’m bummed that this series will be on Apple TV. I don’t have Apple TV and have no plan to get it. Even so, I’m sure it will be available...

Vader / Obi-Wan Battle Reimagined

Some very creative and talented people have recreated the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi, from A New Hope. Obviously, technical limitations in 1977 made an epic lightsaber duel impractical in the first Star Wars movie, but this scene brings the battle inline with what we saw of...

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...

Animated Thrawn Trilogy Fan Series

Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy stands out as the fan-favorite Star Wars sequel that sadly never was. Up until Disney bought the rights to Star Wars and released Episode VII: The Force Awakens, the Thrawn Trilogy was considered by most fans to be the de facto sequel, and it also marked...

DUNE First Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Dune movie has just been released. Unlike the 1984 movie adaptation by David Lynch, this new adaptation promises to be truer to the book (i.e., no ridiculous voice-powered sonic weapons…). Judging from what I’ve seen in this trailer, it is indeed much truer to...

An Honorable Mention to DragonCon

Well, DragonCon 2020 is canceled this year, due to COVID-19, apart from some virtual convention events that you can see here. I thought it might be a good time to put up this old CollegeHumor “Cosplay Catastrophe” video. Yes, it’s about Comic-Con, but if you’ve ever been to DragonCon, then...

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). Star Trek: Strange...

Writing: Getting Started

I’m going to start a series of short articles on writing tips for aspiring authors, mainly focused on spec-fic (i.e., fantasy and science fiction). As an aspiring fantasy author myself, I feel that my own experience in learning the craft, world-building, character-building, and plot-building may be helpful to other aspiring...

The Strange Aliens of Abiogenisis

It has often been said that no human being can conceive of creatures that are truly alien to our world and to our experience. That is why so many aliens in science fiction basically just look like humans with prosthetics or, at best, humans in creature suits. That may be...
