Owning a gun in the Munroe Republic is a hanging offense…so go hang yourself. Easily the best line in JJ Abrams new show.

Or how about the former Gooogle guy.. 8 million in the bank and i,d trade it all for a roll of Charmin.

The insurance adjuster…he,s a mean dude.

So is this show any good? It looks like yet,another post apocalypse show..not sure it has the legs to last though

Star Trek NX:01 with William Shatner? It Could have happened… September 13, 2012

Long time readers of ShowMeSciFi.com know that we have no love lost for the Star Trek Enterprise show.

It wasn’t a good show (for the most part, though it did have some great moments). The Mirror Universe episode of course was awesome as was the cameo when Cmrd Riker (J.Frakes) came on board too. There could have been one other cameo that would have given that show another awesome moment.

William Shatner making an appearance as Capt Kirk. Wouldn’t that have made sense in the Mirror Universe episode? Especially since they capture the NCC-1701 from the future, which should have been Kirk’s ship?
According to Brannon Braga – it could have happened.

He tells this tale in a recent interview:

The only crossover that was exciting was there was a brief time when we were going to put Captain Kirk on Enterprise, and we even met with William Shatner, but it just never happened. We had some story concocted about why Kirk was there and how he got there. I don’t remember. I think Shatner had a pitch. It was actually going to be a pretty cool two-part episode. I don’t know exactly what happened. It might have been that we couldn’t make a deal with Shatner or something like that.

Doctor Who has no shortage of enemies..bad guys like the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Master (remember him?)…

and no new Doctor – Matt Smith – will face an Arnie Schwartzenegger like Terminator, decked out in Westworld type western firefly garb…

sure looks like great fun…the episode airs this Sat on the BBC.

We’re back!

and to kick things off this week are a pair of what should be really great titles.

Star Wars Knight Errant: Escape issue #4 is out..

this series is now near the end..we know that Kara has been discovered, but will she find her family….we’ll see…

The other big title this week for us is another John Jackson Miller one..(dude is busy..)

Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith : Sprial #2 is out this week too.

Having set sail on a prisoner vessel to uncharted territories, a rebel and a stowaway princess find themselves in a losing battle with their crewmates against a society of strange self-proclaimed exiles. When they are taken in by the exiles, new opportunities for power within the civilization pique their interest. The rebel recklessly takes the first opening to go after a guarded weapon he believes could upend the entire tribe of Sith!

Sounds like good fun to us…

Ok we’ve got a name for Star Trek 2 (reboot). No it’s not the Wrath of Khan, thought he original Star Trek II remains the best of all Trek films.

The name is

Star Trek Into Darkness.

Let’s all hope that the Darkness include some Klingons this time…the release version of Star Trek was missing them…

At this point, all of the principal photgraphy for Star Trek Into Darkness has been completed and the film is in Post Production.

Star Trek Into Darkness is set to be released on May 17, 2013.

Yeaah we know that Planet 51 was out in the theatre a couple years ago, but we never got around to watching it, till last night.

That’s the magic of Netflix, somehow that movie surfaced into our ‘Top 10’ so we figured..why not?

it’s an interesting spin on the Alien Invasion theme, nothing too heavy, a few laughs and an ok way to spend an hour or so. It’s not a cult classic and not likely something we’ll ever watch more than once though….

The first episode of Doctor Who season 7 Asylum of the Daleks
by all account is a massive win for the Doctor Who franchise.

According to Entertainment Weekly:

The Saturday telecast was seen by 1.6 million viewers, which is both a time period high and a series best for the show since it started airing on the network in 2009.

Always a good sign when a new season starts off well…

Is Looper the next big SciFi Classic? September 6, 2012

We’re big fans of Bruce Willis in SciFi flicks here on ShowMeSciFi.

We loved the Fifth Element, Armageddon and 12 Monkeys ..and know it looks like he’s set to star in an instant classic.

Time travel is always a solid SciFi concept, but one that is rarely executed properly. So far as we can tell, the concept behind Looper is a solid one. Time traveling hit men who go back in time to erase their victims from history. But what happens when that victim is supposed to be your future self?

Great idea, great premise and we can’t hardly wait for the official opening on Se

No we don’t know the full plot yet for Star Trek 2 of the new canon..

but Chris Pine – aka the Kirk that is not Shatner – has started to do some media interviews.

In one published this week in UK pub total force he said:

“The force [the Enterprise crew] are met with is much more frightening. It’s relentlessly action-packed and in terms of character development it goes places you’d never expect. The arc is huge for all the characters. It’s a really big story – I can’t hype it enough!”

Places you’d never expect hmm…well we’re still hoping to see some frakkign Klingons and we sure hope to see Kronos too.

Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn – One of the Best Trek Books in Years September 4, 2012

Ok we thought the first book in this series – Plagues of Night – was a little slow. This book is wall to wall, cover to cover excitement making this an awesome read.

DS9 as we know it is no more.

WOW.

The head of the Tal Shi’ar imprisoned and the Alpha Quadrant cutoff from the Gamma.

WOW.

The pure size of the plot shifts that happen in this book are massive and a delight to this Star Trek fan. No shortage of action or drama in this brilliantly crafted and written book – Highly recommended (but read Plagues of Night first!)

This books was difficult to read – well at least the first two thirds of it.
Then the action kicked in.
If you can get through the ridiculously long and overdone setup in this book you’re in for a real treat.

The big finale that this book leads to reshapes the Star Trek canon as we know it. It is a must read for all Star Trek fans that are following this continuing saga…word of warning though…this book won’t make any sense unless you’ve read the Destiny series or the previous 4 Typhon Pact books.
