Review: Star Trek: Save What From Heaven is With the Breezes Blown

Star Trek: Save What From Heaven is With the Breezes Blown by Mark LargentMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I came across this comic on Facebook recently.  Since it wasn't available as a CBR, I downloaded all the images from the facebook group and packaged my own for reading. This was not a bad fan comic. Some of dialogue needed a little tweaking, but the artwork was awesome.  The story doesn't

The video game industry has been getting a lot of attention lately, and this book contributes to shedding some light into the working practices of this billion dollar industry. While I am not familiar with some of the game, from

Mortal Kombat 9 | Done

This is one of the games that I had gotten on a (summer?) sale a few years back on my xbox and had never gotten to it.  I was a fan of Mortal Kombat when it had come out in the arcades in the 90s but I hadn't really revisited the franchise since then. The sale seemed like a good opportunity to do so.I played this game on Story Mode and completed the main story, but as with any game of this type,

Assassin's Creed Origins | Done

I don't know when I started this game (sometime last summer), but (for now) it concludes my binging of the assassin's creed series on the Xbox (and I can say that I am 'all caught up' - at least as far as video games go - yes I wrote this last summer and I didn't bother updating this initial text 😝).  The game starts off with the last of the Medjay -an elite group of warriors who were serving

A little farther now from .Mac...

At first there was iTools.  Then there was dotMac (.Mac), then there was MobileMe, and now there is iCloud. I think this particular service was what I first used as paid web-hosting, and as a Mac user both at work and as school (before always-connected phones), I used mail, calendar, contact and bookmark sync for everything.  As I slowly moved from an iPhone/iPad ecosystem to Android, so

OK, maybe a few more accolades...

Well,  summer 'vacation' on Risa is upon us in Star Trek Online, and has been for a while.  This gave me a bit of an opportunity to claim a few more accolades that are Summer Event accolades (as well as go back for a few more Breen ones that seemed 'easy' to get)Unauthorized beach party - Basically come back to one of the beach-front spots after dark to join a fire-side party.  Ever

Review: Star Trek: Khan

Star Trek: Khan by Mike JohnsonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This takes place after the movie Into Darkness.  I think that the reader gets a sense of the backstory to Khan - starting in the pre-TOS timeline (where things are the same between the prime and kelvin timelines) and moving across into the kelvin timeline events that got us to Into Darkness. Through this story we see where Khan

Review: Star Trek, Volume 13

Star Trek, Volume 13 by Mike JohnsonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a review more of the entire "Star Trek: Ongoing" by IDW than just this volume.  In this particular volume the TOS crew meets Kelvin-timeline crew. It's an interesting way to see the aesthetics of the two timelines juxtaposed and people and their respective lives compared and contrasted. Throughout the series it
