I know I don’t post much here anymore, as I enjoy semi-retirement from the media circus, I still tweet and comment n Twitter at @scifistorm…but the situation is becoming more and more untenable for anyone that doesn’t match the Supreme Overlord’s view of “free speech”. Since it is now apparently in violation to tell people what other social media platforms you are not on that Herr Musk doesn’t approve of, I just want to let you know that I am on Mastadon as @scifistorm@bbq.snoot.com . I’m still figuring that platform out, but I will try and post more to it ..read more

We’re getting the band back together! Or at least, we’re trying… In case you haven’t heard, either via Eddie McClintock’s leaked “secret” email, or from the actual announcement at DragonCon last weekend, there is an attempt at rebooting Warehouse 13! Original producer and showrunner Jack Kenny, and former Syfy executive Mark Stern, are seeking a meeting over at NBCU (home of Syfy and the Peacock streaming network) about bringing back the show. While the exact form of the show may yet to be determined, original stars Eddie McClintock (Pete), Allison Scagliotti (Claudia) and Saul Rubinek (Artie ..read more

Not a good week. Now we mourn the loss of another Star Trek icon, Nichelle Nichols, who passed away at the age of 89. Nichols played Uhura in the original series. Well respected by and respectful of the fans, she once planned to quit the series, but was convinced to stay on by none other than Martin Luther King, Jr., who told her, “You cannot….for the first time on television, we will be seen as we should be seen every day, as intelligent, quality, beautiful, people who can sing dance, and can go to space, who are professors, lawyers.” After Star Trek, she actually consulted with NASA to help ..read more

RIP British actors David Warner and Bernard Cribbins…

This week we lost two great British actors, David Warner and Bernard Cribbins. David Warner played a number of memorable roles, from pure villains like the brutal Pomponius Falco in Masada (for which he won an Emmy) and the Evil Genius in Time Bandits, to sympathetic enemies like Chancellor Gorkon in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Always a memorable actor in every role, he did guest spots on many shows including Babylon 5 and Star Trek: The Next Generation and many animation voice roles. He was also a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and played many classic roles on stage. When ..read more

Babylon 5 reboot in active development for the CW with JMS in charge

Holy Hand Grenades!!! It seems like hell hath frozen over at the offices of Warner Bros, or at least those in charge don’t still have hatred against – or remember – the old Prime Time Entertainment Network shows. In fact, the people in charge are fans. JMS announced on twitter today (link to first post in thread) that a reboot of Babylon 5 is in active development for the CW network, and he’s working on the pilot currently and will be the showrunner once again upon pickup. And it is indeed a reboot, which JMS spells out in his tweets – not the least of which is “because over half our cast are ..read more

Baseball, War, and Hope: A Fastball for Freedom, second in “The Dark Depths” trilogy
Sci-Fi Storm
by Doc

Author and playwright Gary Morgenstein is back for the seventh-inning stretch – his acclaimed first novel in “The Dark Depths” trilogy, A Mound Over Hell, introduced us to the bleak world at the end of the 21st century, after a war against an extremist Islamic regime resulted in the defeat of the western world, clawing itself out from the ruins under the auspices of The Family, the de-facto government of what was the United States, where pretty much everything enjoyable is illegal, and baseball struggles to remain relevant. The devastating events at the end of the story appear to renew the int ..read more

What did the 33-star U.S. Flag in Ascension mean?

Hey all…still alive and kicking around here…obviously I haven’t posted anything in a while as many other things have taken on priority lately, but we are edging closer to our 20th anniversary! So I figured I post something original, about something I never clearly understood. In the 2014 mini-series Ascension, originally on Syfy but now available on Peacock, we are introduced to the residents and crew of the multi-generational Orion-Class starship U.S.S. Ascension, halfway through a 100-year journey to colonize another planet. In the show we are shown a U.S. flag, but it isn’t the normal flag ..read more

Just thought I’d give an update, since I haven’t posted any articles in a while…I decided to take some time off from this site as it was taking up a lot of time just trying to keep up with the news lately, and I’ve been super busy with many other things that I just couldn’t concentrate on it the way I’d like. We also had a big family vacation this summer. To be honest, the site has been running on fumes for a while. Any sort of revenue has slowly dwindled away to a fraction of what other relatively static sites I have generate (which still doesn’t cover the cost of the server), and and whil ..read more

The Orville star and creator Seth MacFarlane dropped a bomb at San Diego Comic Con – the show will move off of Fox onto the Hulu streaming network for season 3. In a statement MacFarlane said, “The Orville has been a labor of love for me, and there are two companies which have supported that vision in a big way: 20th Century Fox Television, where I’ve had a deal since the start of my career, and Fox Broadcasting Company, now Fox Entertainment, which has been my broadcast home for over 20 years. My friends at the network understood what I was trying to do with this series, and they’ve d ..read more

Yes, my dear Earpers…it’s finally happening! Season 4 has finally gotten the green light!
