Last week I was catching up with Continuum, a Canadian science fiction show about a future cop that finds her way to present-day Vancouver.What I didn't realize is that this was the final season, and I was actually watching the final episode, which for once was refreshing to not know what was coming. (yes, spoilers ahead). Stop reading, and go see this series. It's worth watching.With the TV
Sev Trek: One of the few Malcolm Reed parodies
This week's Sev Trek: Enterforaprize comic is one of the few Malcolm Reed parodies. Not bad :-)

Jackleg JoeIt's been a while since I wrote about Defiance. At last writing I was at an EGO rating of about 200, which apparently was a little problematic for beating Jackleg Joe, the boss of the last mission or Marin called Bullet for a Badman (which apparently is a Western movie title). In this mission I was stuck by not having enough capability to inflict damage on the enemies, so off I went

Sev Trek: Making fun of catsuits #2
This week's Sev Trek: Enterforaprize comic tackles the topic of catsuits, again. Seems like the readers of the comic strip had fun with this one.

I came across this video introducing Star Trek Timelines. This seems like a pretty interesting game, which is also developed locally in Massachusetts. This seems to be a mobile game (and from the graphics it looks pretty great!). Wonder if my aging iPad 2 will run it ;-)
Are job titles passé?
This is a cross-post from my other blog. Seemed like a topic I'd also talk about here. I was reading this post on InsideHigherEd the other day by Joshua Kim. The post, A plague of directors, which was a bit comical; the mental image that came to mind was one of plague carrying zombies with name tags that said "director" - yeah, I know, sometimes my imagination runs wild and comical video games
Sev Trek: Damned catsuits
This week's Sev Trek: Enterforaprize comic tackles the topic of catsuits on female characters. I didn't really think a lot about this when the series were airing, but on my most recent rewatches I've often thought "WTF?!" Why do Troy, Seven of Nine, and T'Pol have regular uniforms? (Haven't seen DS9 recently). Hopefully the next series will do away with the catsuit.

Well, the end of the Iconian War is upon us! The story arc that started with New Romulus a couple of years ago is now seeing its conclusion. During this arc we've explored ruins under New Romulus, we've discovered Dyson Spheres (two of them, in-fact) we've fought the Elachi, the Hirogen, the Undine, the Voth,... and the Iconians (wow, that's a lot of people to fight), and we've

When I was younger I used to inhale Apple Keynotes. I think part of it was Steve Job's presentation style that really drew me in. I was also a big Apple fan (well, I still am), so I really wanted to know what products came out and get all the related specs and dirt as soon as possible Early on this meant buying MacAddict, and heading to the Boston Public library to read the most
