Watchdogs Legion trailer

Seems like it's video game announcement time, and even though I have quite a few unplayed games left, I am always looking toward what's coming up next!  Heck, I haven't even started Watchdogs 2 yet!    Anyway - Watchdogs Legion is coming out sometime this year and the cinematic trailer looks pretty good!  There's something very  "V for Vendetta" about this game.

Star Trek Lower Decks trailer

The trailer for the new animated star trek series is officially out (with the series premiering in a few short weeks). I wasn't really sure about this series when I first heard about it, mostly because it was associated with Rick and Morty (another animated series which I don't particularly like - the dialog is not for me). After this first official, full length, trailer, I am cautiously optimistic

Review: Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke

Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke by Paul AllorMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I always enjoy a good mirror universe story.  Voyager (like TNG) didn't have an on-screen mirror universe, but it's interesting to see that even in the mirror universe Janeway and crew were stranded in the Delta quadrant.  Faced with the prospect of returning to the alpha quadrant to fight a losing battle

Review: Star Trek: Discovery - Aftermath

Star Trek: Discovery - Aftermath by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars It was a rather interesting epilogue to the most recent season of discovery.Synopsis from Memory Alpha: Many Klingons, including Kor's father, decry L'Rell’s position and actions as chancellor as well as her self-appointed nickname of "Mother." Pike contacts L'Rell in an effort to build a lasting peace atop

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
