Where's camptain pike?
Seems like old school fan films (pre CBS guidelines) are pretty quiet. Axanar seems to be 'working' on it, and Pacific 201 sends some periodic updates. Captain Pike on the other hand seems MIA. I think this might be one of those casualties (or maybe a study case for kickstarter risks). Too bad that it looks like this won't come out (especially considering that Pike will be
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). Troy is such a great character, just needed better writing. I do like one of the alternate taglines a little better "Don't say it, just do it." - it calls back a little to the other "star" franchise ;-)(original archive here)
Love notes to Newton
Now I wish I had known about this crowdfunding campaign a while back (I don't often visit indiegogo, but I do keep an eye out on kickstarter from time to time). This is a documentary, that luckily was partially funded about one of the most awesome mobile platforms in computing history: the Apple Newton. I can't wait for this to come out :-) Love Notes to Newton (Preview) from
Overload is coming!
It took a while, but this kickstarter is almost here (to be released at the end of May). I haven't been playing the betas (even though my kickstarter pledge allows me to) to get totally immersed when it's released. It's been a while since I played a game of this sort (since Descent, actually!)
Assassin's Creed Unity - Mobile Companion | Done

LOL, I am not sure why I am writing about the mobile companion app...but I am (so...deal with it? :p). Anyway, yesterday the final side-mission of the companion app cleared and I got all my little lovely check marks across the map of Paris. In this companion app you recruit Assassins from across Paris, and as you send them away on missions to control different locations in Paris
Trials of the Blood Dragon | Done

Recently, another game I 'completed' was Trials of the Blood Dragon. While I did get through the story of the game, I am not sure that this is one of those games that you 'complete'. When I got this game for free through xbox live 'games with gold' a number of months ago I thought that it was more of a Far Cry game, but it's basically a Trials game with Far Cry highlights. I had actually
Sev Trek - Picard playing poker
A reference to the final episode of the TNG series. Picard joins the crew for a poker match and says he should have done this a long time ago. I guess this is what happens once the cameras stop rolling :-) I liked this punchline --> "I" "HAVE" "NO" "CHIPS!" --a reference to There Are Four Lights but it doesn't quite fit in :)(original archive here)
Μαραθώνιος μετ εμποδίων
Χτες είχαμε τον ετήσιο μαραθώνιο της Βοστόνη ένα αθλητικό γεγονός το οποίο συνήθως όταν ήμουνα στο λύκειο πήγαινα κάθε χρονιά να το δω. Από τότε που άρχισα να δουλεύω, και από τότε που έφυγε ο πατέρας μου από το συνεργείο
Back to the Future: the game | Done!

I've been debating which game(s) to move onto next on the xbox now that Assassin's Creed Syndicate is (mostly) done. I realized the other day that the "free" games that we get on xbox live gold aren't really totally free. You can claim games for free when they are available, and you can enjoy them, for free, so long as you have an active xbox live gold membership. Considering that
