Some SciFi stuff

November 18, 2007

A couple of Star Trek notes. I watched New Voyages latest offering, “THE WORLD ENOUGH AND TIME“, with guest star George Takei. Damn good stuff. Take the time to watch all their stuff. It really is made out of love for the show.

Pictures of Zachary Quinto as Spock in the new Star Trek feature film are out. He looks like a good fit.

I’ve been watching the second season of the new Doctor Who series. This is first season with David Tennant as the Doctor. I think it is pretty cool that it was watching Doctor Who as a child that gave Tennant the acting bug and his life long goal was to play the Doctor. IMHO, it shows in his performance.

The new series has a couple of spin off shows, including Torchwood. I’ve seen a few episodes. It looks seriously good. I’ll probably be buying the DVD set when it becomes available in the US.

Casting comparisons for the new movie and the TOS actors.

I’m not that familiar with most of these actors.
I’ve seen Zachary Quinto on Heros, and I think he can pull Spock off.
Simon Pegg as Scott, fornicating brilliant. James Doohan brought a delightful bit of humor to the character. Pegg can take the run with it and score.
John “MILF” Cho as Sulu? I don’t know…the real question is how is Cho with a sword.

By way of eCanadaNow, eh…:

Beam them up – stat! Matt Damon, Adrien Brody and Gary Sinise are in talks to play the Big Three in the Star Trek XI movie next year.Fresh from Ocean’s 13 and The Departed, Damon is pegged for the role of a young Captain James T. Kirk, previously played by the Shat-tastic William Shatner.Meanwhile, Oscar winner Brody (King Kong, The Pianist) is slated for the role of Mr. Spock, which was immortalized by Leonard Nimoy, and CSI: New York’s Sinise could revive the cranky Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (made famous by DeForrest Kelley).

HT to Ace.

Damon was great in Dogma, so he might be able to pull this off…

Klingons on the left coast

The best part of a review of the Klingon Death Metal band Stovokor

They spotted a young woman with a tribal tattoo on her lower back, and the 6’6”, one-armed vocalist, pInluH HoD, pointed his glorious battle wound of a stub and declared, “She does bear the tramp stamp! We will take her to our breeding camp.”

Yet another Star Trek series rumor

April 7, 2007

Star Trek: Cardinal. Here is the scoop from Slice of SciFi:

If Sal Lagonia, president and producer of Project: Cardinal, a whole new concept in Trek lore, has his way that possiblity seems promising with “Star Trek: Cardinal.” While Lagonia admits to having no prior experience as a producer, he does claim to be a semi-professional screenwriter, having “done a great deal of production work for various series and movies, as well as owning a film degree,” according to the project’s creator.

His attempt at revitalizing the 40 year franchise back on to the small screen will concentrate on the crew of the USS Cardinal, a small vessel which is charged with the unglorified job of maintaining the Ferengi border, a small rectangle that also happens to connect the Romulans to the Cardassians in a smugglers corridor. The crew would be charged with chasing criminals and would-be invaders.

If this were the be all and end all to the series, some Trek fans might burn the studio down in protest. However, it is not the be all and end all. The creator of this unique concept is not just giving the crew a mission and leaving it to the writers to decide what random aliens they will encounter every week. Instead, the crew of the Cardinal is inadvertently placed in the center of events that will change the entire galaxy.

From the very beginning, the crew is faced with mysteries that don’t have solutions, mysteries that are causing powers to challenge other powers. The Federation Starship USS Cardinal is placed in the unenviable position of stopping a war, something that becomes increasingly harder until they are no longer able to accomplish that particular mission and war becomes inevitiable.

Good Star Trek news

The latest episode of ST: New Voyages is out.

One of the really cool things was in the final credits, seeing a clip of James Crawely in a ST:Enterprise uniform. We’ll have to wait for that episode.

This would be funny if it wasn’t so damn sad…

In case you haven’t been keeping up on world events, knives are now illegal in Great Britian.
According to this article in The Sun, this includes Klingon Bathlets…

It’s worth a visit just to see the picture of a British cop holding a Bathlet and trying to look serious.

As far as I can tell, this idiotic law will serve only three functions.

1. Pissing off British Trekkers
2. Making millions of Law Abiding British subjects felons for having a butchers knife
3. Providing a safer working environment for violent criminals.

Take a look at the third picture (after the uncredited clip from a Paramount film).
The collection of now illegal blades includes a standard kitchen cleaver and a hatchet.
If you are semi-serious about Chinese cooking or an avid camper in England, odds are you are now a felon.
