  1. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    I know it's very, very early to be saying this, but I don't like the idea of an R-rated Star Trek movie. It's just not right.
  2. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    I think I've seen one Quentin Tarantino movie, so I don't know what he's like as a director. Which means I don't know what to make of this news. I do wonder what it means for the rumored fourth movie in the current reboot series.
  3. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    This week's episode of The Orville felt like a mashup of TNG's "Where No One Has Gone Before" and "Remember Me." I wasn't a fan of the ending. It felt like a cop out. I continue to watch all the DC shows on The CW. Even Supergirl, which it has gone off the rails this season. So boring to watch. Arrow feels very tired. Legends of Tomorrow is okay but nothing special. The Flash is maybe the best of the bunch and it's not great.
  4. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    I'm enjoying The Orville. I especially like playing the "Star Trek did it!" game while watching.
  5. Star Trek: Discovery

    Not a surprise at all. There is literally no way CBS could possibly cancel the series after one season. It has too much riding on CBS All Access. Cancelling Discovery would basically be giving up on the streaming service.
  6. Star Trek: Discovery

    Question for those who are watching Season 1: Has the show toned down the lens flare and odd camera angles that annoyed me so much during the series premiere on CBS?
  7. 2017 Movie Megathread

    Trailers for Justice League and Star Wars: The Last Jedi were released recently: Justice League looks awful. No plot, just explosions. The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is confusing. I'm entirely spoiler-free, so I have no idea what the movie is about. The trailer doesn't do much to explain what's going on.
  8. The Son's of Mogh. the ending bothers me.

    I don't remember much about this episode but I know I didn't like how Kurn ended up being wiped of his memories. It felt liked a weak ending for both the character and the episode.
  9. Remember AOL Instant Messenger (aka AIM)? It's shutting down in December. read more at The New York Times. It's a little sad to think about. Bittersweet, I suppose. I spent so much time on AIM in middle school and high school. Even during college and a few years after that. I was still using it around 2010/2011. Life on the Internet was easier back then.
  10. Three new sci-fi series coming from Amazon

    I haven't heard of Lazarus. I am familiar with Snow Crash and Ringworld but have no interest in watching TV shows based on them.
  11. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    Anyone watch Marvel's Inhumans last night? It wasn't as bad as reviews made it sound. But it wasn't very good. I think there are only 8 or 10 episodes. I'll probably watch them all. I'm a sucker for Marvel TV.
  12. Star Trek: The Next Generation celebrated its 30th anniversary a few days ago. The series premiered in syndication in the United States the week of September 28th, 1987. I actually forgot all about the anniversary until I saw a tweet from Wil Wheaton yesterday. To celebrate, here are some early promotional spots and news coverage from 1987: I'm only slightly older than TNG, so this makes me feel ancient. Happy 30th, TNG!
  13. It's entirely possible but I don't know of any, personally. I used to keep in touch with a few people outside the OL but lost touch with over the years as people migrated from IM to Facebook. As far as I know, they're still alive but haven't returned to the OL.
  14. I still occasionally check out his blog. I only recently learned he's really into tattoos.
  15. 15 (!) years later...

    I was 16 and in high school when I joined the OL in 2001. Now I'm I'm 32, married, and have a five week old baby.
