Review: Star Trek: Waypoint #6

Star Trek: Waypoint #6 by Gabriel HardmanMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Interesting collection of short stories from the Star Trek Universe. I think my two favorites were Naomi Wildman's comic, and the Phase II era stories. Reading the stories in this anthology made me wonder if we'll see any Phase II era stories pop up in the future.  It might be an interesting look in an alternate era.View

Review: Airship Enterprise: The Infernal Machine

Airship Enterprise: The Infernal Machine by Brian DenhamMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This was something that had come across kickstarter a while back (before I really looked at kickstarter). It is an interesting take on Star Trek through a steampunk lens. I am not all that interested in steampunk as a genre but this wasn't a bad story. I think for Trek fans you'll find enough to keep you going,

Review: Star Trek: Captain's Log

Star Trek: Captain's Log by David TiptonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I wasn't sure how much I'd enjoy reading stories about secondary captains (Jelico, Sulu, Hariman), i.e. those not seen on screen for very long - but these were actually quite good short stories. I wouldn't mind having more Hariman or Jelico stories come our way! It was also interesting to see the excelsior class go from brand

Make it slow!

Review: Star Trek Romulans The Hollow Crown - 2008

Star Trek Romulans The Hollow Crown - 2008 by John ByrneMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting continuation of the story that started in Romulan Schism where you see the Klingon's plot of circumventing the Organian Peace Treaty. Overall and interesting story, but I feel like Klingons and Romulans lack a bit of depth. For all the honor being touted by the proponents of the Klingon way, there

Sev TNG: I am sensing the obvious

This is an obvious dig at the poor writing that they had for Troy in the first few seasons on TNG (basically until Jelico came and asked why she wasn't in uniform).

The Orville - scifi humor!

The Orville is a scifi comedy show coming to FOX this coming fall.  It being on FOX, if the show is any good it will most likely be cancelled (LOL), but I hope it's good and it stays on the air (if Family Guy is still on the air...then surely this must remain as well!)Many seem to be comparing it to Galaxy Quest, but I think the comparison is a bit off.  Galaxy Quest was about actors playing

Commendations complete!

Holy Chalupa, Batman!After close to 5 years of playing this Star Trek Online (since it went Free to Play basically) my primary character (Tolya Kotrolya) has finally maxed out all of his commendations!  The elusive commendation was the "recruitment" commendation which for the Federation folk it seems pretty hard to get (unless you want to sacrifice a whole bunch of uncommon and rare Duty Offices

Star Trek Online: Season 13 - Escalation

Escalation hit the interwebs last week, and having played a bit this weekend it's not bad!  The Smoke & Mirrors mission reminded me a little of Star Wars (the aesthetic), and a little bit of Captain Planet (the "don't mess up your planet by polluting, Kids!)I played a bit in the competitive warzone queues and the space one is definitely my favorite or the two. The ground missions (invisible

Competitive Wargames Reputation - STO

Well... Just as I finished one reputation (Lukari), and have enough marks to get the gear...and now there is a new reputation coming along.  More grind....more grind :p   This one has several different types of sets that can be mixed and matched, which means a ton of grinding ahead.  But hey, there are capes!

The artisanal sound system

Best patch note ever!

STO is down for maintenance.  Last night the First Contact event was hard to get into, which I assume is one of the things being looked at.  I loved this patch note today:  Resolved an issue where the Heavy Escort Railgun was healing enemies instead of damaging them. Healing your enemies would make for some really long battles - but this gives me a good idea for a console:

First contact day is upon us!

I saw, on the the STO blog, that First Contact day is almost upon us! For the event, STO will be doing the following:Captains who participate will search the area for useful parts, just like Cochrane scavenged the pieces for the Phoenix. Using these parts in conjunction with a basic hull assembly, captains will make their own model of the Phoenix by combining engines, hull, and stabilizer parts found

Joining the Breach

The Breach came back as an event queue in Star Trek Online last week.  This comic sums up exactly how I felt about it. Although to be honest, it's much shorter, and the rewards seem better as compared to the original Breach queue, and I need to get enough Lukari marks to finish off that reputation... (original here)

The renegades are coming!

It's been about a year since the premier episode of Renegades (formerly Star Trek: Renegades), but the new one is coming out in a couple of weeks.  The series has gone a transformation from something set in the Star Trek universe to being its own thing, thanks to certain lawsuits over fan films... I am curious to see how things tie together, or if this will be just a reboot of the fan series

Huzzah! More grinding!

That title is a bit heavy on the sarcasm ;-)A new season of Star Trek Online has been announced, coming to us on PCs next week.  The new season, titled "reckoning",continues the Lukari story arc, introduces the Tzenkethi (of Animated fame?), and of course introduces a new reputation titled "the Lukari restoration initiative", with new traits and gear you can get.I'll most likely get the gear

A temporal captain!

Finally! I've now become an old school temporal captain ;-)About five years ago when I first started playing Star Trek online what I really wanted was to fly around in a Wells Class temporal science vessel (and sport the 29th century uniform).  The problem?  The Wells was a lockbox ship, and before I knew the odds of getting one I ended up opening a whole lot of temporal lockboxes with nothing

Goodreads year-end-review

Couldn't escape the GoodRead year-end-review!I am generally very conservative when I set my reading goals each year because I tend to think of books as thick things that take a long time to get through.  However, as this year has proven again I've read more books than I expected.  If you notice, you'll see that it's a lot of comic books and star trek novels (audiobook or text-to-speech ebooks

Mirror TNG!

Woah!  I don't often pay attention to the annual Free Comic Book Day (perhaps because I haven't really been reading comic-books regularly for the past 25 years), but this time around it seems like I can't miss it.  IDW will be putting together Mirror Universe stories, and it looks the TNG will be getting the mirror universe treatment.  Out of all the Star Trek series only TNG and Voyager

Jurassic Trek: Oath of Celibacy

We've now moved on to the Movie-Era TOS comic strips.  This on comes from the Motion Picture, which is parodied as "the slow motion picture".  Commentary on this is interesting.  I remember watching the motion picture and I found it odd that they needed to mention the oath of celibacy - It is the future, and starfleet is a military organization (in some part) - why bother? :-/(original
