Assassin's Creed Rebellion | Endgame Reached

One of the games that I've been playing periodically while watching TV, is Assassin's Creed Rebellion. The game is a mobile strategy RPG with all the regular fixings of a free-to-play game: a limited in-game currency that you use to play missions. The currency replenishes at fixed time intervals, or you can pay to get more of it ahead of the full replenishment time.The game draws from the story of

Review: The Maquis

The Maquis by R.A. JonesMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This is one of those stories that I could see being adapted to a DS9 episode. Bashir takes some well deserved R&R to Risa (the number of days he takes off seems ridiculously low, but whatever), but he gets abducted by the Maquis because they need a doctor. Of course, this isn't the real reason, one Maquis is trying to get her relative

Review: Star Trek Deep Space Nine - Worf Special #0 : Bonds of Honor

Star Trek Deep Space Nine - Worf Special #0 : Bonds of Honor by Dan MishkinMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad main story: Worf has been accused of sabotage on Starbase 113. Sisko is instructed by Admiral Nechayev that Worf must be arrested immediately upon his return to the station. Instead of returning directly, Worf follows another vessel, the one that left immediately before him. He trails

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July to anyone who is reading this!  It's a bit of an odd year (as if 2020 wasn't odd enough).  Usually, on July 3rd we can hear the band and audio engineers do some test runs of the music that they will be playing on July 4th, and on the 4th it's live music all day (well, between 10am and 9pm when the fireworks display ends).  This year we have none of that. Hopefully,

Review: Star Trek: Picard - Countdown

Star Trek: Picard - Countdown by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I think this was a good companion to the Last Best Hope novel.  This comic follows Picard on another Romulan colony world that needs evacuation, only to discover that the Romulans have only given estimates for Romulan beings to be evacuated, not the additional 5 million people of the native sentient species that

Review: Star Trek Sonderband 06. The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine. N Vector

Star Trek Sonderband 06. The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine. N Vector by K.W. JeterMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This was not a horrible story.  It's a story set after the events of the DS9 finale.  There is Romulan scientist that has discovered a "viroid" that can take over someone (or something inorganic).  First O'Brien is implicated for sabotage (even though he was in at Starfleet

Καλό Μήνα!

Να τος και ο Ιούλιος!  Αν και ο Αρκάς μας λεει πως είναι ώρα για παραλία, εδώ μας έχει ριμάξει στην βροχή...  Καιρός για καραντίνα στην Ελλάδα (αν και η ΕΕ μας έχει μποϊκοτάρει εμάς τους αμερικανούς)

Review: The Last Best Hope

The Last Best Hope by Una McCormackMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a prequel novel that takes place before the first season of Star Trek: Picard.  The story shows us the other side of the preparations to save Romulans (and Remans?) from their fates which are doomed due to the Romulan Star going supernova.  I was hoping for some more congruence between the ST09 Countdown comics

Double Dragon Neon | Tried

When Double Dragon Neon came out on gamepass, I thought I'd give it a try. When I was a kid, I rather enjoyed playing double dragon on my monochrome Gameboy, and it always seemed like a fun game - even though I never think I beat the original.  Since it was practically free to try on my Xbox, I thought: why not?On the surface the game seems like a nice reboot of the original.  Updated graphics,

Some more STO accolades

I've been saving this post and keeping track of accolades I earned since the last time I posted about my accolade hunt in Star Trek Online.  Since a few of them are now collected - here is what I've earned. These are in the order I got them (2019-2020).Time BanditThis was one of the few Red Alert accolades I was missing.  To earn this one you need to save the entire cargo fleet from being
