Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Gorn Crisis

 Permalink
Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Gorn Crisis Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Gorn Crisis by Kevin J. Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an OK graphic novel. The watercolor inspired art direction didn't really do much for me. It wasn't bad, it just was not something that I was drawn to as compared to other comics I've read. The story was also mediocre. I was expecting more in-depth Gorn lore, and it seemed like a very throw-away story. I actually liked the Gorn-related information and lore in the Typhoon Pact series of novels much more than this.  I kind of saw this as connecting to that novel series (in my 'headcanon') very losely, perhaps this as a precursor to the Gorn's problems later on.

A new episode of Star Trek Continues is out! Sad that there are only 2 more left... :-/

This week in US music

 Permalink

I came across this quite clip serendipitous while looking for something else.  It bubbled up I think while I was looking for some other music.  It's new to me... so - it's this week's new music for me ;-) I guess #nsfw if you don't want the "fuck" and its derivatives on your speakers at work :-)


Woman by Kesha
Verdict: Catchy and it's got a good beat. Something for the playlist

New Discovery trailer

 Permalink
This one is from the recent San Diego comic con, for the upcoming Star Trek series.  It seems interesting.  While I do like Star Trek, and I will watch the broadcast pilot, I don't know if I am a hardcore-enough fan to shell out money for All Access.  Just put it on Netflix and Hulu and be done with it :p.  Looking at some of the consume designs, they seem pretty interesting, but the starfleet delta shield badges seem impractical since they carry both division and rank on them, So you need 4 different ones for different divisions, plus at least 4 different variations on each one of those (ensign, lieutenant, commander, captain).  The logistics division better have replicators by this point!

Not really sure how to interpret this one.   Wondering what I thought when I originally read this.

Έρχεται το Ready Player One!

 Permalink
Κάπου είχα ακούσει πως το επώνυμο βιβλίο θα γυριζόταν σε ταινία, αλλά βασικά το είχα ξεχάσει. Με το comicon στο Σαν Ντιέγκο την περασμένη εβδομάδα είδαμε και το trailer λοιπόν αυτής της ταινίας. Το trailer, αν δεν έχεις διαβάσει το μυθιστόρημα, δεν πιστεύω να σου λέει και κάτι ιδιαίτερο. Οι εικόνες στην οθόνη όμως ήταν κάπως όπως είχα φανταστεί τον κόσμου του Ready Player One όταν διάβαζα το βιβλίο. Ανυπομονώ την δω!

Φανταστικό σποτάκι

 Permalink
Αυτή την εβδομάδα κάνει σάλο στο ίντερνετ το διαφημιστικό σποτάκι του ημιμαραθωνίου Κρήτης. Από Ελληνίδα μάνα ξέρεις; Τότε έχεις δει το σποτάκι ήδη ;-)

This week in serendipitous music...

 Permalink

I came across this music video last week, by chance, while looking at my work's google alerts (one of them being for the term 'linguistics').  I guess  I had to listen to it!


Switch out by Taim feat. Linguistics
Verdict: Not bad... the end was a little abrupt, and I am not sure why "linguistics" is the name of the vocalist, but whatever... Not a bad track, but definitely lacking in the connections department.

Sev TNG: the French captain

Hmmm... Should Picard be drinking tea?  Or, since there is synthahol why not some good Bordeaux? ;-)
