vestassmall.jpg Wind Power has been hailed as the ecological saviour for the planet…now while many may think it’s the Wind that actually powers the wind turbines, we here at ShowMeSciFi.com know better.

On a recent trip through Copenhagen International Airport (CPH) we came across a wind power display from turbine vendor Vestas.

There was something a bit odd about it though and on a closer examination it become more obvious.

Check out the pic below of the (lego) worker in the model that runs the Turbine..


That’s right! Obi-wan Kenobi and The Force!

Sarah Connor Chronicles Won’t Treat Terminator 3 as Canon. June 24, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in fox, Sarah Connor, sarah connor chronicles, Sci Fi, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi, terminator.

Terminator 3 sucked. Ok good now i’ve said it.

T1 and T2 were both awesome but T3 was ridiculously bad for a lot of reasons. Now there is hope though with the upcoming Sarah Connor Chronicles series (set to debut in 2008  on FOX) that we the FRAKKING FANS will finally get the T3 we deserved.

The creator of SCC just gave an interview where he revealed that the new series will go off on its own alternate timeline.

We’re gonna go off on our own. I think the thing about T3 is, obviously there was just no Sarah Connor and that’s something the fans were never happy with. I don’t even think the people who made T3 were happy with that. It just wasn’t a choice of theirs. You know, Linda Hamilton was going through some things and didn’t want to be a part of it. They had a script at one point I know; there was a T3 that had Sarah in it. I’ve never read it. I don’t know anything about it. But I know that they did and they wanted to do that. They wanted it to be kind of her trilogy, and it never could be. So I think that my feeling was this TV series to me sort of serves as the third act to that trilogy – what could have happened had we followed that after T2. So I almost think of this as T3. To me it takes the place of T3. But also I think that sort of in the spirit of Terminator, it’s an alternate timeline. I know a lot of people get very worked up about the continuity and the canon and all that stuff. What I try to do is stay very, very true to the first two movies and then sort of take it from there. But always remain true to the spirit of everyone’s intent and again, take some time with this woman and explore what maybe would have happened.

Sarah Conner Chronicles – CLIPS posted! May 21, 2007

WELL we might have to wait until 2008 for the Sarah Connor Chronicles – but FOX is being good and has put some clips online to whet our collective apetities.

I don’t know – but Sarah Conner is Linda Hamilton and it’s not going to be easy for anyone no matter how good to replace her.
Then again Summer Glau rocks…in this clip she does her version of Arnie’s T2 – ‘Come With Me If You Want To Live..’

Looks like MORE Terminator movies are on the way. According to DarkHorizons Halycyon Co has acquired the rights and is already intending on making a Terminator 4 set for a Summer 2009 release.

Neither creator James Cameron or original star Arnold Schwarzenegger will be involved in the project, which picks up with John Connor in his 30s leading what’s left of the human race against the machines.

Terminator 1 was an awesome movie. T2 was fantastic. T3 SUCKED.

There are some really great Terminator books out there too but they don’t follow into the T3 cannon so there is a divergent set of stories and histories. Will T4 FOLLOW the T3 CANNON? Who knows.

Will the new Dynamite Entertainment Terminator comic book series be related? again unknown.

For a film franchise that started so well with a solid time travel loop story it has gone from Science Fiction to Science NonSense.

Beyond T4 – don’t forget the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV spinoff series is also under development. Again it is unknown if/how it will relate or tie into T4.

Sarah Connor? ??

Looks like it’s not just the Terminator who will be back but Sarah Connor as well.

Multiple news outlets are reporting that filming has just wrapped on The Sarah Connor Chronicles which is a Terminator spinoff series.

Summer Glau who is well known to scifi fans from her work on Firefly (and the “Serenity” movie) plays Cameron, a female Terminator. There is also a male named Cromartie (Owain Yeoman). Apparently it’s some some of T2 type scenario where one Terminator is good the other evil.

The series starts at the end of T2 with Sarah Conner (not played by Linda Hamilton – i know that really really really sucks -) played by actress Lena Headey on the run with the future leader of humanity John Connor.

THANK GOODNESS it doesn’t deal with the T3 crap. That movie just plain sucked.

“The Sarah Connor Chronicles” is set to premiere on Fox this fall. I’ll be sure to post clips as soon as I can track them down. That is unless the Governator tracks her down first – and here for your viewing pleasure..that infamous clip from the original.
